Atheists answer me

Atheists answer me
hi and hope all are fine

for those who dont believe in god i have a question
which type of evidences do you need to prove the existence of god

what i know it is not necessary to have evidence to prove existence of things

example 1:
suppose in the real world , i can see red color and they are many things have this color e.g blood
in contract the blind cant feel this color, cant see it

so if the blind people say give me an evidence to prove the existence of red color

what shall i say , do i have to make him touch the blood

if he touch it , is it enough ?

no

so do we believe the blind if he say i dont believe in red color

of course no.

believe in god is something out of our control

because a human is restricted in time and space

believe in god is like when a blind asks you to prove the existence of colors

What type of evidence do I need to convince me of a god? I don't know, it's never been presented to me before.

But as pineapple says above, what's a god?

Ignoring the analogy for a minute (as its a bit confused), what do you mean when you say belief in a god is out of our control? I was born an atheist and have remained thus my entire life, so I'm not sure what you mean. Please clarify.

Uhm ... this world believes in multiple gods. They all had a hand in creating it, according to their believers. But they all contradict each other. Which one do you mean?

What is out of my control? I don't understand.

I think you are using metaphysical to denote immaterial, things. If so then what you are suggesting is that god is an abstract concept like justice.
And in this I agree god is the anthropomorphism of a group of abstract concepts. Hence you see god referred to as love.



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.

This reminds me of an experiment we did in elementary school. We set out different colors of construction paper on a sidewalk, took a magnifying glass to them, and timed how long it took for them to start catching fire. Which, admittedly is kind of an odd thing to do with 5th graders, but hey, it was in Arkansas and we were setting things on fire. The darker colors caught first, surprise, surprise.
This is just a horrible analogy. There are other things we can point to in respect to color than simply what it looks like. We can measure the wavelengths of light reflecting off the surface, we can measure differences in temperature caused by the various heat absorption rates of different colors, etc. There is nothing measurable by way of evidence for god.

And, assuming it exists (big assumption), neither can you.

What's your point? I still don't understand "out of my control".

So how do you know anything about your God?
