As an atheist, so long as real evidence is provided I can easily admit that a god exists. Whether that god is still worth worshiping, however, is a different matter.
Or whether any writing ascribed to God is actually from God as well.
This is the real crux of the matter and it seems to me there is a serious aversion among atheists and naturalists to the notion Goddidit. What if years down the road insurmountable evidence comes forth that in fact Goddidit. Are peoples teeth going to turn blue? Will there be rioting in the streets? Will the stock market crash and people's underwear explode? Will scientists run around in circles and pull their hair out? On the other hand if there is conclusive evidence Naturedidit it wouldn't be the end of the world for me. After all if God didn't do it then its the only game in town.
If fiery letters appeared in the sky, in all languages, saying "I am God and I exist", I would have to pay some attention. IF! Actually, that would answer a lot of questions. But I notice that keeps not happening.
Until there is actual proof that a god exists, this argument is moot. In the absence of an outside force, "nature" is the only possible mechanism for the shape our world has taken.

...There is evidence Goddidit and there is evidence Naturedidit. What we lack in either case is conclusive evidence. Goddidit or naturedidit are just opinions. However, given that they are opinions and no one really knows why is the belief Goddidit often held in ridicule as being absurd and preposterous? Wouldn't that only be true if there was overwhelming evidence in favor of naturalistic causes?
How would one go about proving that a written work was actually from a god and not from a human? Just curious.
I think most here would have no problem believing in god if there actually was evidence to support that belief！it's funny when religious people fail to acknowledge the mountains of naturalistic evidence that nature did indeed do it. And then they think there's evidence of god when there's actually none. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
