There is no God.

There is no God.
I believe there is no God. Atheism is usually not stated this way, to avoid the burden of proof, and granted that is a fair point I see no reason to shudder the burden. There is evidence against God; every conflicting creed or claim about him, our current knowledge of evolutionary theory as it relates to chemistry, biology, and culture, all points to one direction: there have never been any agents outside physical laws and natural selection shaping the direction of genes or the silly memes our genes and environment have inspired. There is no concept of God hence put forth that is indistinguishable from the very properties we would ascribe to an object that we were trying to literally define out of existence. Timeless, non-physical, limitless in power and knowledge, the list goes on with descriptions that consist of taking concepts we use in the real world, concepts defined by their limitations, and stripping them of all relevant application. What does omnipotence mean? Is this a question for philosophers or theologians? At such a point in the discussion, what's the difference? Why should the existence of something by default imply the existence of something greater? What pay off does God offer that isn't synonymous with "I don't know yet..." As an atheist I would add, "but the hard work getting put in is yielding new information everyday. And as I suggested, all the evidence I've seen is directly counter to the notion of God."

Now if your idea of God is little more than some ineffable force, then of course we know there are forces in nature that are currently ineffable. Fuck, most of physics to me, the mathematical equations, mean nothing. I'll likely never wrap my head around it. Black holes and dark matter are examples that come to mind that bring my intellectualizing to its knees. God doesn't, at least how he seems construed by misguided philosophers and theologians. To me, the concepts used to describe God are boring because as I said, they're all but meaningless adjectives, concepts stripped of the very limitations that make them meaningful as descriptions of existing (and tellingly, distinctly human) properties.

I believe God is a myth and I'm confident that observations from all fields of science support that claim.

Science only supports knowledge that defaces those poorly defined religious gods. For science to even try to find god, it would need to know what it is looking for.

I know the gods described in the so called 'holy books' don't exist. But since I don't know everything, there might be a time we can define the word god and provide evidence for that thing. Untill then, I can't believe.

Boobs on the other hand, I do believe. Oh the joy!

Nice claim. Good luck proving it.

RE: There is no God.
People don't have to prove that someone's favorite god doesn't exist. The person's favorite god has to prove that he exists. And guess what? Not one god of any kind has ever proven that it exists and done anything godly since the first con man created it. If your favorite deity can't or won't come forth in all of its reported splendor then the SOB doesn't exist.

Still waiting on Frodo's explanation of why he rejects all supernatural entities save for his own, and what criteria he uses to do so.

He doesn't seem to grasp why it's a problem he can reject Bigfoot, Nessie, and Chupacabras out of hand as superstitious nonsense, yet doesn't apply the same skepticism to his pet deity.

The grand thing is that we don't NEED to prove the non-existence of God. We don't even need to prove that Pickup's belief that God is mythic and that science supports the notion.

Atheism needn't do anything at all but wait for religionists to come up with either 1) evidence or 2) arguments that are not reasonable refutable. Take your time on this - we've been waiting 200 000 years.

There is no God.
The irony being that Frodo would be passionately defending Allah or Vishnu had be been born in an area where they're the god du jour.
