There is no God PERIOD
« on: February 01, 2017, 08:35:37 PM »
Devise a double blind experiment to prove that a God exists that can be duplicated then another that proves whatever qualities it has and I might believe.

Until that happens I contend there is no God a supreme being or creator of the universe and a set of qualities that we must follow.

We are a subset of the great apes and react in much the same ways. Omnivores who fight and kill for territory and who have a passion for power. The president of the United States is the alpha male in our culture or society and he gets there by showing his noise making is greater than any other.

You can argue against comparing homo sapiens with other great apes but what is is.

Yes, humans are not so great apes.  Meanwhile if a period isn't a divinity, what about a colon?  Would a semi-colon be a demi-god? ;-)

I can already hear the refutations of that.  First among them, "God has nothing to prove to you!"

From my observations, this is obvious.
Therefore, he must exist?   :confused3:

I agree with you sir but I just require evidence. Any solid evidence will do. Using the scientific method of course.

Seems this omnipotent, omnibenevolent, omnijust, omniscient, omnipric still hasn't gotten around to proving it's existence. For such a smart individual a shitty book dictated to desert goatherders was his best idea yet. What a gem.

I'm just curious if you demand a double blind test for everything you have come to believe is true? Like the belief we owe our existence to unguided naturalistic forces?
Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

That's not a belief. That is the default position. Everything we can observe is explained by naturalistic forces. Your god, though, has yet to have been proven to have any impact on our universe at all.

Also, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

I might not question it if you were to say a man shot an arrow into a target in the midst of dense fog.

If you were to say that a man shot an arrow around the world, the arrow stopped in midair, did a 90 degree turn, and pierced every tree for a mile, ending in a massive fireball, I'm likely to give that claim a little extra scrutiny.

But but ... in a recently posted (in this forum) Road Runner cartoon, a lightning bolt thrown by the Coyote, did something just like that, I saw it with my own eyes! ;-)

Proof? Science?  Since when have we ever relied on these things in this life? The only thing we now need are 'alternative facts' as dictated by our beloved dicktaster in chief..
