There is no evidence for either. Richard Dawkins tried using logic to prove that God doesn't exist, but even his has holes in it.

Look, it is bad to not be rational, right? It is irrational to believe to think anyone knows whether or not God exists or what he wants, because there is no evidence. The bible was a collection of origin stories and myths told by people in a time where there were no explanation known for natural phenomena. Religion is a uniquely human centered idea. What makes humans so special? It is a type of specie egoism.

I don't know. None of us do. The only real difference between Atheism and religious faith is that faith go beyond the question "Does he exist" to "What does he want" and answers with an affirmation that is falsely mistaken. It is human hubris to think we have any real idea.





I don't think anyone here is trying to claim that either side knows whether God/gods exist(s), I just want to see the arguments for both sides.

There inevitably will be claiming that ones know if God exists and what he wants, otherwise they wouldn't be in this thread for the most part. Between Ejanns stupid assertion on the childhood an atheist must have had to Deyre's insipid comments on Cobainism, I can only infer that they speak from a place of actual belief.

No, why would I want to debate myself?


Yeah I don't get that either why would they want to debate about you? Why not debate about me? Being the amazing goddess that I am.



Indeed, I like your parlor tricks :3


Thanks I spent all my stat points on them.

Whether or not gods do or don't exist is largely irrelevant in day-to-day life, yet is constantly used as convenient excuses to be jerks. Few are willing to own up to the truth that they're assholes, regardless of their beliefs. It's far easier to rally behind favorite football teams than to face personal responsibility. On the flip side, aforesaid beliefs may be used as excuses to be nice, although this is the less popular option.

And that's perfectly fine. That's why we have popcorn.

I'm not saying it isn't. I am saying contrary to your claim, that they are indeed trying to claim a definite over an unknown question.

Most of them do speak from a place of real belief, that is why there is popcorn. Because these threads tend to burst in flames because people take their beliefs seriously.

1) Well, I mean't it as in yet since no ones really started debating yet. 2) I believe you mean an unknown answer, not question. 3) They do indeed.

Sorry if I appear angry, I was visibly shaken by a gang rape story in Florida where a girl ended up being fed to alligators.
