Undeniable evidence that god(s) and/or goddess(es) do not exist would begin a long period (probably a century or more) of radical social, political, and cultural transformation throughout the globe as theists came around to the idea that they couldn't be such anymore. There would be hangers-on who would remain theists and deny the undeniable anyway, of course, but there would nevertheless be a dramatic decline in the global population that would say they believe in any god or goddess over time. As an example of political transformation, Iran would probably erupt into civil war. As another, Vatican City would see its influence on global governments become severely restricted as people abandoned Catholicism, though I don't expect they'd completely vanish from relevance and would still be able to cooperate in humanitarian efforts even after most people abandoned theism. Meanwhile, religions without deities would probably witness an explosion in their popularity as theists not willing to embrace irreligious, big "a" Atheism came their way. So that's something to consider about possible future landscapes as well.

Basically, humanity would be reeling for a while, but we'd survive it. Of course, since the existence of gods and goddesses is an untestable hypothesis one struggles to imagine just what evidence of their nonexistence could be conjured. The reason people reject theism and embrace Atheism is more generally because there's no definitive evidence for the existence of a deity, and they'd rather assume the null state to be true until such evidence emerges.

If God exists, great! If not, also great! Things would be no different right now either way.

Even through I myself believe in God I gotta agree with the above. I never understood all the fanatical pitchfork and torch mobs forcing their faith down other's people throat. Or the useless internet tough guys saying God doesn't exist.


If you have enough spare time to waste with such frivolous things go do something more productive or at least less hateful for crying out loud. Gaming, exercise, anime, hell hookers and blackjack is a better option.


I actually always like to get my hookers and blackjack in before my nightly bedtime prayers.

Then uh...nothing changes? Finding out that a god does exist would be much more impact than finding out one doesn't.

Not this thread again.

I'm atheist for all it matters, but I don't like religious threads either way.

In the basic idea, that no one knew otherwise. Then nothing discernible would change. Like...

It means that when people die, we die, no afterlife. There's not much else it'll change beause we can't prove or disprove his existence in life. People will still argue like mindless drones all over the place.

Except that God isn't intrinsic to afterlife or spirituality. Just because God didn't exist either in the way that's believed, or at all, doesn't mean that there isn't more out there that people are wrong or ignorant about.

What if we've been doing fine without questioning the existence of such a mythical being?

That age ended long ago when abstract thought of the unexplained and indistinct came around. Basically ending before known civilization began. All our lives and every society, whether you believe in spirituality or not, have been changed and structured by the ideas of what could be and desired to be.

As for the idea that God's nonexistence were somehow provable... religious doctrines would likely just shift to something that still fit a similar mold. Like saying our big bang and evolution are part of God's method and design. ...And people would have another reason to kill each other.

Which God? I believe in no God so if they don't exist it won't bother me. If they do, who cares? Still not going to follow some bastard who lets people hate and kill.

This is by far the strangest question I have heard since "Would you like a Pepsi?"
