God Does Not Exist.
Proof of his absence is all around us, but is there any proof that he does exist.

How does everything exist if something didn't create it? There was certainly not just a big bang and science has proven that a cell of one species can't be a cell for another species. Im not a christian but I believe we were created by God. I saw an awesome video that opened my mind. For something to exist you need time, space, and matter. God says in the Bible , in the beginning = time, he created space = space, he created earth = matter. Everything in the earth is connected. How does something so complex not have a creator?

I believe in rationality and humanity.
The fact that for long we have had created an institution of God was to bind human race with some model code of conduct, to prevent unethical way of life, and to instill a belief amongst people that Good always wins over evil besides creating a fear amongst people against what is considered as sinful..

So, having faith of people reposed in God was and is a way to ensure that morality prevails..
Moreover due to lack in scientific advancement and being vulnerable to disasters people were in awe of some superior force, which is not the case now.....

One more proof I can give why God doesn't exist:
Why some people have to bear unjust, unimagined, unbearable pain...?
Why there are brutal killings, rapes, diseases???
Would God not prevent these if He/She was there??He/She must be having a big heart to prevent these..no..??
No...because we ourselves gotta work for our own survival...No one will help...That's the key...!!

My personal opinion is that our brains are supreme, we must trust ourselves first, what is proven and scientifically verified first!!Rather than any other supreme force..
But in doing so...it must be ensured fundamental values of humanity,morality and justness are upheld...

I think the evidence is overwhelming showing God exists, and also show Jesus is the Son of God. He is all around us and is more real than our physical reality.
As time nears its end, and as God unfolds His final works, He is also revealing mysteries in His Word and connecting things and revealing things like never before.
If you have 1000 coincidences in one Book, and each coincidence is compelling in itself, then just maybe ... The Bible may have been Authored by Someone outside of our natural reality.
Both pi and e to the 4th decimal point is in 2 verses
Gen 1: 1 and John 1: 1

What makes this most compelling is their location in the scripture. Not buried deep but sitting right on top Gen 1: 1 and John 1: 1
And both math equations match what God was doing in both Testaments.
Genesis - pi - full circle creation with pre-designed history from beginning to end!
And in John 1: 1 Jesus brought light into the World. And not just for one nation Israel, but for "e" exponential growth out to every nation!
Then God adds both together and brings it back full circle to the final act of adding back to the tree the Jews. They had to reject first, for the Gospel to go out to all nations. Now everything is in line for final prophesies.
And Israel is a key player! How did one small place end up the object for all the world to focus on? Maybe its God finishing what He started!

Fundamental Constants
The Mysteries of Pi and e
by Chuck Missler
A Rabbinical Tradition
The ancient Hebrew sages believed, of course, that God created the heavens and the earth. However, some of them believed that the Word of God was the very template with which He did it. This strikes some of us as simply a colorful exaggeration that goes beyond any direct evidence. There are hints here and there. There are two well-known references to the creation in the Scripture: Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1.
Both Hebrew and Greek use letters as both letters and numbers. So if we read it by its numeric value in these two verses we can find pi and e to the 4th decimal. And both are more precise than you would learn in basic math! They are precise to advanced usage.
**To see Hebrew or Greek letter chart go to link and click on the linked word "chart"
http://www.khouse.org/articles/2003/482/

http://www.khouse.org/articles/2003/482/

Let’s look “underneath” the text of each of these.

Here it is in English - Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Here are the letters in Hebrew: [ Masoretic Text ]

Gen 1:1 בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָֽרֶץ׃

If you examine the numerical values of each of the Hebrew letters, and the numerical value of the words (see chart), and apply them to this formula:

Number of Letters x Product of the Letters
. . . . . . . . ÷
Number of Words x Product of the Words

You get 3.1416 x 1017. The value of π to four decimal places!
.

John 1:1
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

In Greek: John 1: 1 ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος καὶ ὁ λόγος ἦν πρὸς τὸν θεόν καὶ θεὸς ἦν ὁ λόγος

John 1:1 in Greek

This time if you take the numerical value of each of the Greek letters (see chart), and the numerical value of the words, and apply them to the same formula:

Number of Letters x Product of the Letters
. . . . . . . . ÷
Number of Words x Product of the Words

You now get 2.7183 x 1040, the value of e.

.
Note:
The Masoretic Text - is the authoritative Hebrew and Aramaic text of the Tanakh for Rabbinic Judaism. However, contemporary scholars seeking to understand the history of the Hebrew Bible's text use a range of other sources.

God at times means many but at same instance means nothing.
In some situation a god is term used to define power over other being, for example he you stand infront a starving beggar with some food in your hand and beside you is a stone statue of a deity, in the eyes of the beggar the god will be you.
Some time god means hope and faith in times of peril and chaos the god is nothing but pure faith that everything will be better tomorrow.
Some times god means something we cannot describe or we cannot give any plausible explanation then that unknown thing is referred godly.
But most importantly god means beliving in our beliefs and morals and never letting ourselves down in our own eyes.
I wont say god doesnt exist and i will certainly decline the statement that 'god does exist.'
maybe it all depends on perspective of a person.

Contrary to popular belief, absence of evidence can be evidence of absence. Hypothetically, if I stated that there was a 500 lb blue gorilla sitting on your lap right now, the absence of evidence would be evidence of absence. The trick is, knowing what evidence would exist. Just as evidence of the gorilla would be the weight on your lap as well as the visual evidence, a god would also have evidence. For instance, a god would need some type of physical form in this world to interact with this world. This means a theist would need to provide evidence of this physical form.

It is impossible for all of these religions to be right and logically there is no evidence of God existing. Honestly I don't know but anyone who says they do know is lying because no one knows if you think you the the answer PROVE ME WRONG

Indeed. There are so many dead gods we should have wisened up already. My favorite reasons are:
1) there's no evidence
2) there are mechanisms explaining how and why we created gods; cf myth
3) this man's god is next man's fantasy.
But yeah no evidence.

If god created all animals, insects, bugs and wildlife in seven days how does one explain the dinosaurs? The incredibly giant meteor that hit the earth 65 million years ago with over 100 million mega tonnes of force. That force and the following dramatic changes in the climate wiped off 50% of the worlds different species.
So if god did create the world in 7 days how did such a impact like that not kill humanity?
How did humans co-exist with the dinosaurs? The ice age?
So Adam and Eve ate a apple given to them by a talking snake, to then be banished from gods luxury garden to then be eaten by a velociraptor ? That doesnt quite sound right

 If you read the holy books you'd realize that god created the world in 7 days including animals. Which animals? We don't know. But we do know that through evolution they have turned to be those that we know of now. Furthermore there are still some uncertainties about the Chicxulub impact causing the extinction of most dinosaurs. Climate change also plays a factor, but that does not prove that 50% of all animals died because of it. The ones that evolved were able to adapt to the ecological changes, no matter the causes.

Humanity came after god created earth and animals, when adam and eva ate the forbidden fruit in heaven and were sent to earth. As for who lured them to eat the fruit, it's the devil (based on what I've read) not a snake.
The fact that they were sent to earth does not mean that god sent them to eaten, or else how would we exist? They were sent partly because God was fully intending on sending them to earth in the first place & partly because they have disobeyed a direct order. The holy books say that god sent them ,after forgiving them, to show them that even if people are forgiven that does not mean that they can get away without any punishment. E.g. if a person accidentally hits you with their car and you forgive them, that does not directly mean that you won't press charges or demand to be compensated for medical expenses, pain and grief, lost wages, and more.

As for how they co-existed with the dinosaurs or the ice age, they adapted (most probably through evolution, developing defense and offence mechanisms and finding safe havens). Just like older generations that lived in the wild. Back then humans were the prey and animals were the hunters but with the development of science and tech we have turned that around.

There is NO evidence for any deity or supernatural entity. On this basis, it is only logical to conclude there is no god

The two main theories are that the big bang happened and from there life evolved(Evolution) and that a being of unlimited power decided that he was bored and created an imperfect, sexist and homophobic race of murderers, rapists and criminals(Creationism). To me the idea of a god who would create an imperfect race, although there is the idea that we were made in his own image - God may be imperfect. So either we evolved OR an imperfect madman in the sky created us all immediately.

 First of all we were perfect when God created us. WE messed it up, it wasn't God's fault! Murderers, Rapists, and Criminals??? Are we all murderers, rapists, and criminals?? I don't think so, that argument holds no water! There is nothing sexist in the bible. Men and Women were built for different things and they have different roles. One is not above the other and one job is not more important than the other. Homophobic is just a term that non-believers use to put a negative spin on people who are against homosexuality. I know you don't see it but homosexuality is as wrong as murder and rape. Without God, everything is permissible. Without God, murder, rape, lying, and stealing are all ok. There is not even a basis for you to tell me that God created an imperfect race if there is no standard by which we judge what is perfect and what is not.

It's all explained in that Big Bang theory, right? If origins from a condensed point upon which Big Bang expands is everything - include our thoughts. Something originated in that matter - so I am stuck, what exists? If you say God exists I know that came from "matter" in the origins of the universe (and the compressed matter). For me it's moving from "I discovered and instituted a system of belief" vs "someone else doing the same".

We know what we know until otherwise. Now is "otherwise". Do you believe?

 It is still just a THEORY, although it is what i believe in, it is only "a supposition or a system of ideas intended to explain something, especially one based on general principles independent of the thing to be explained."

This is a paradox that proves God does not exist:
If God created a rock that even he could not lift. If he lifts it he cannot create everything. If he cannot lift the rock, it means he is not omnipotent.

 From a Christian perspective he has done exactly this. It says that "he puts his word above his name" it is talking about his title as God. In the beginning he gave power to men over this world which men then gave to the devil by following his suggestions. To this God had to become a man(Jesus) to have part of that power returned to him. Being God means that he is the highest order intelligence in the universe and is sovereign over it as no one is even close to take the mantle from him. He is Universally centered and eternally minded maximizing the profitability of every decision therein. When he spoke to Moses through the burning bush and told him to go to Egypt and set his people free Moses asked "and whom shall I say sent me?" to which God replied "I am" so he says he exist and I prefer to take his word for it.

If you believe in god i want you to work with me and be a little open minded and just IMAGINE god does NOT exist. Imagine that when you die your just gone. Erased. And that no one truly knows how the universe came to be. That all you truly have in this world is your self. And that people who do terrible things and get away with it are not punished when they die. Scary huh? That's why you believe god exist, because your scared. Its alright I understand.

And that people who terrible things in God's eyes and don't repent are not allowed in His presence when they die. Scary huh? That's why you don't believe God exists, because you are scared that you will be held to a standard that you can't obtain. It's alight I understand.

As far as the standard goes that is God's standard, and He has provided a way for all of us not to be jugded by it. It is our choice to be judged or not.

Yes, god does exist but not in the way we define it. It is a supreme power which cannot be labeled.
But all that religion BS is just BS so if you think that Jesus or Buddha or Vishnu or Shiva were/are gods, you suck because all religions are lies!!!!
Btw, Jesus and Buddha were ENLIGHTENED beings, not 'gods'. They found their true self.

Depends on your definition of God, the idea that some invisible dude in the sky who created the earth 5000 years ago exactly as it is today seems silly, but maybe go could have started the big bang? Just a hypothetical question, I just wan tot point out that the bible and science a re more than capable of co-existing if you don't take the bible completely word-for-word

 Well, you think in a literal worldy sense... you don't find God through research or by evidence or even by science. You find Him through the Word (the Bible) and through total faith (believing what you don't see). It's like love and luck... you don't "literally' see them, but you believe that they're there and working in the background. Plus, would it hurt to believe...? God and the Bible have done miraculous things in the world, brought peace to many people, and teach nothing but peace, morality, and good principles.

I am an anti-theist. I cannot conclusively prove there is no God (just as believers cannot prove there is) but I can look at the balance of probability and say that the existence of god is so incredibly unlikely as to be as good as impossible.

To quote a man with a much better way with words than me:

"Science knows it doesn't have all the answers, otherwise it would stop, but just because it doesn't have all the answers doesn't mean you can fill the gaps with whatever fairytale you like the most".

I also believe that the God represented in the Bible, Qu'ran and Torah is a hateful and petty creation worthy of nothing but fear and contempt, and that on balance religion does more damage than good.

Happy to debate this below but to pre-empt a lot of the nonsense I see in other comments:

- There IS evidence for evolution, it is NOT a theory of random chance and a scientific theory does not mean a guess (http://www.notjustatheory.com/)
- "If you're wrong you're going to hell" is not a logical argument, its a recourse to intimidation
- Multiple exclamation marks and claims of Jesus' return will be taken as a sign of mental instability
- Arguments that god created the universe to look like he didn't smack of desperation
- The Bible is not consistent (http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/jim_meritt/bible-contradictions.html), nor is it moral (http://www.evilbible.com/) and its contents were hand picked by a conference of powerful men with an agenda (http://www.livescience.com/2410-council-nicea-changed-world.html)
- The mad, bad or god argument that Jesus (and by extension other bible figures) were either correct, insane or evil liars is debunked here: Http://faculty.wwu.edu/howardd/mbgfp5web.pdf
- "I believe so it must be true" is contradicted by the billions of people who sincerely have faith in something different
- The argument "we can't have come from nowhere therefore God made us" makes no sense, as it fails to answer where God came from

 I'll paste my response to Your response to my comment, since it's unlikely that You'll read it.

"Atheism is faith that is based on nonsensical assumptions. All faith is based on assumptions without coverage in knowledge. You are also a believer. You believe that God doesn't exist. You can't just say that you know that he doesn't exist. That would be ignorant." -- And it's a prefect response to Your statement -- "I cannot conclusively prove there is no God" -- That's good common sense, You're not ignorant, but still You managed to make a mistake by calling theists "believers" -- "(just as believers cannot prove there is)" -- and explicitly excluding Yourself from the "believers" group. Tell me, can't this go the other way around? Can't a theist call You a "believer" since You believe God doesn't exist? We all are belivers, we just believe in different things, or in a different way. It's interesting, but simple. Faith is a effect of lack of knowledge, and atheists have no knowledge, just like theists. Actually, theists have more knowledge than atheists, the only knowledge that atheists have, is that the knowledge that theists have is not satisfactory (for atheists).

Now, I'd be happy to debate on these issues, unfortunately, I agree with most of them. The fact that Christianity is full of contradictions and inconsistencies doesn't preclude the existence of force majeure. Christianity may be a completely wrong perception of the so-called "God." Most of the problems You cited are related to Christianity, but there are hundreds of other religions. Most likely none of them describes God correctly. From a humans perspective based on Christianity, contemporary western morality and equipped with well-developed logic, God is a bloodthirsty monster praising pain and fear (of course, if he exists) I don't know if You wan't to debate on that. Let's move to the things I disagree with.

"The Bible is not consistent (http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/jim_meritt/bible-contradictions.html), nor is it moral (http://www.evilbible.com/)" -- I'm interested in the moral part. Check out "moral relativism". In summary, the morality of the Bible is a subjective topic for most people, but I, trying to be objective, came to the conclusion that morality is relative. Thus, it's improper to me to say that the Bible is absolutely immoral. But the source is talking about God being immoral. That's also a subject to debate. According to Christianity, God is morality. -- "Murder, rape, pillage, plunder, slavery, and child abuse can not be justified by saying that some god says it’s OK." -- It does, actually. As one would say -- "Let the will of heavens be, with it one always has to agree" -- originally -- "Niech się dzieje wola nieba, z nią się zawsze zgadzać trzeba" (translated by id_viper_88_id)

""I believe so it must be true" is contradicted by the billions of people who sincerely have faith in something different" -- When You're talking about different, You mean different Gods / religions. Those are not "antonyms". There's no paradox going on here. Different religions can simply be different views of the same God.

"The argument "we can't have come from nowhere therefore God made us" makes no sense, as it fails to answer where God came from" -- Does God have to come from somewhere? Is that mandatory?

"When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion." (for some humor)

If God Exists There Would Be No Suffering No Toture And No Killing Or Flooding The World Would Be Perfect.

The Bible Is Full Of Hot Air, God Would Prevent Anything To Do Bad Or Harm To This World.

 So since God doesn't do what you think He should do, that means He doesn't exist? My my, aren't we (meaning you) so very puffed up, thinking you know better what the universe should be like than God Himself. Where were you when He created the universe?

I feel a lot of debate on the against side is missing the point, that when one makes a claim, it is the claimant's responsibility to provide evidence of claim. It is not the listener's responsibility to disprove. If you claim there is a higher power, provide evidence.

A lack of evidence against is not evidence for.

There is no proof that we are not all in a dream, or in a bubble controlled by aliens, but we generally don't make life decisions surrounding it. I have found, for the most part, that many religious persons are committed to religion and theism because they fear the consequences of not. That terrifies me. That one should live their life with such dismissal and irrationality. Or they have 'felt' some movement in their soul. You vastly underestimate the human mind. We are complex, flawed creatures, and the human mind can be tricked, grown, and awed with such ease.

God does not exist because he rationally does not make sense. There is no logic, no evidence, no base, but the human want for purpose, acceptance, and simplistic understanding.

 I don't know if you've realized it, but everything you just said could be used against you too.
If you claim there is NOT higher power, you have to provide evidence too.
"God does not exist because he rationally does not make sense. There is no logic, no evidence, no base, but the human want for purpose, acceptance, and simplistic understanding." This doesn't prove anything, they're just claims. In fact, there is no proof for the Evolution either. It's theory. not fact. It's just as you said, "A lack of evidence against is not evidence for." You gotta play fair here.

I have no reason to believe that God exists, if we actually had something to prove that he exists, then fair play, but we don't so.... Anyway i find it hard to believe anything that doesn't have solid evidence to back it up. So i would believe in the big bang, because there is evidence to prove that. But to think that 1 being (God) created a whole world it just absurd!

 You seem to miss the point of being an all-powerful being. He really couldn't be all-powerful if he couldn't make the Earth in 7 days, now could he? Anyway, you people keep thinking that us "religious folk" think that everything was made at it's beginning (when I say that, I mean that all the stars, planets, galaxies, etc., was made at the formation of the star, planet, galaxy, etc.). What I'm trying to say is that since God is all-powerful, he could have created everything as if it were in the middle of it's life. He could have created a star in seconds that would have seemed to be billions of years old already. The scientific community also believes that the Big Bang occured. The reason they think this is that everything is moving away from each other. They conclude from this that everything can be traced back to a central point (which would be the center of the universe and where the Big Bang would have occured).
The problem with this argument is that there is no center of the universe. With the way the universe is expanding, it actually seems from a large perspective that everything is the center of the universe. To demonstrate this, you need software that lets you alter pictures. First, get a picture of randomly-placed black dots, not too many or too little. Copy this image, and expand it 5-10%, and change the color of the dots (it makes it easier to see). When you line up two dots that were the same, all the other dots seemed to have moved away from the one point you lined up. Now if you line up another pair of dots, everything looks like it is moving away from that point.
Now to another demonstration. Imagine a car race (the Daytona 500 or similar). If you compare the progression of the race to the progression of the universe, we would be somewhat into the race right now, and the Big Bang would be the beginning. What scientists did (metaphorically, remember the universe is represented by the cars and the race), is look at where all the cars are now, and use complex formulas, algorithms, and equations to kind of "rewind" the race. They would conclude that all the cars started at the starting line, which would seem like a logical thing. But with all-powerful power, God created all the cars randomly around the track already going high speeds only a few laps before where they are now. That would give the ILLUSION of everything tracing back to a starting point. This is a pretty good metaphor for both sides of the story, even though us "religious folk" are right.

It's kind of ignorant to say that God doesn't exist, just based on the fact that there is no evidence that he exists. The same is the case with the assertion that he does exist, just because no one has proven that he doesn't exist. I'll agree, just to reduce inequality.

 It is impossible to prove or disprove anything supernatural. All you can do is state whether you have faith in its existence (believer), are not sure (agnostic) or are about as certain as it is possible to be (atheist). I am atheist in the same way I am an atheist about dragons, unicorns and fairies. I cannot prove they don't exist, but I am pretty sure they don't and I believe it would be ridiculous to give their existence credence just because I cannot disprove them.

It's totally meaningless to say he does or he doesn't. It has no effect on us in any way whatsoever. If we all decided tomorrow to say 'yes, he exists, we believe!'' nothing would change, the world wouldn't alter, planets would still spin, suns still shine, human nature would continue as before.
Science has never said 'god doesn't exist' because it doesn't need to, , science works whether the scientist believes or not, so science just simply dropped the god factor a century ago, and got on with the provable.
A christian saying 'yes he definitely exists' is laughable. In the bible you are told 'believe in me', , ,well the very act of belief relies on something being unproven, because a belief that is confirmed becomes a fact, and stops being a belief.

 In a response to your statement "well the very act of belief relies on something being unproven," explain dark matter to me then. Tell me how you thinking that something that we cannot see, cannot detect, cannot feel, taste, smell, etc. is not belief but fact. You may then earn a tiny amount of respect from me.

We don't know if God does exist or if he doesn't. People have faith, they believe in God. He doesn't have to exist, just believe that he does. I however, am not a believer or one to have faith in a fairytale character. Sorry, religious folk.

 Thank you for giving me another opportunity to tell the world what a worthless piece of shiite these worthless, lowlife, unregenerate, reprobate people are!

Grenache,

You and your worthless, lowlife, reprobate friends wouldn't be reading this if you didn't respond to me or make debates that referenced me!

Can't you take a hint? I don't want to have anything to do with you and your worthless, lowlife, reprobate friends.

Have you ever noticed that I don't comment on any of your worthless, lowlife, reprobate debates???

Your worthless comments are neither needed nor wanted.

Keep your worthless comments to yourself.

Without any justification, you and your worthless, lowlife, reprobate friends have called me a bunch of smear names such as; racist, homophobic, sexist, fascist, hateful, intolerant, mean-spirited, divisive, inflexible, bigoted, idiot, moron, etc., that the Liberals love to use when they have lost the debate.

Meanwhile, I have only spoken the truth about you when I say that your are an adulterer, a reprobate, and have no absolutes or principles in your life.

All of you worthless, lowlife reprobates voted TWO TIMES for Bathhouse Barry Obozo so it's no mystery that you would have friends who are worthless, lowlife reprobates.

I won't comment on any of the debates created by you or your worthless, lowlife, reprobate friends and I certainly neither need nor want any of your worthless comments on my debates.

You have more in common with a porn addicted, spouse-swapping, fat lesbian like Artemis aka SkankOpotamus aka Cynthia Horn and her fat, clown faced, "really good friend" Damsel aka Joanna.

Artemis aka SkankOpotamus aka Cynthia Horn sent me a picture of her in a blue dress that looked like someone tried to stuff 300 pounds of shiite in a 200 pound blue sack. Gross, really gross!!!

Artemis aka SkankOpotamus aka Cynthia Horn: Go save YickYak!!!

Your lover, Moreno Cubanito, needs you to save his failing YickYak website!!!

You always say that your husband, Michael Horn the runt, doesn't mind sharing you with other guys and gals. You always say that you and the runt enjoy watching porn, have an "open marriage," and that he encourages spouse-swapping and your bisexuality because that double his chances for some extra action.

Artemis aka SkankOpotamus aka Cynthia Horn said you committed adultery by boinking her fat, married, "really good friend", Damsel aka Joanna when she visited America.

Since you have so much in common with those two worthless, lowlife reprobates, I cannot understand why any of you worthless, lowlife reprobates would waste your time talking to me.

God weeps for all worthless, lowlife reprobates who will not turn from their sin.

Jeremiah 13:17
17. But if you will not hear it, my soul will weep in secret for your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears,

A Christian is under no obligation to present the gospel to reprobates who will just make fun of the gospel. A Christian should not give what is holy to those who do not appreciate it. Animals such as dogs and hogs cannot appreciate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and this verse implies that there is a class of humans who cannot appreciate the truths of Christianity either. So in the very passage itself we are told to test, discriminate, and evaluate between the true and the false.

Matthew 7:6
6. "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

All of us are sinners to one degree or another and all of us have a daily battle with the temptation to sin. Some people have an almost irresistible desire to steal things. Psychiatrists call these people “kleptomaniacs” but the Lord still requires that they use their free will to say no to their sin and turn toward the Lord. Some people are genetically or psychologically predisposed to be addicted to alcohol or drugs and, in order to quit, sometimes they have to be hospitalized and endure terrible withdrawal symptoms, but the Lord still requires that they use their free will to say no to their sin and turn toward the Lord. Sexual orientation and acts of perversion cannot be conflated with a race of people created by the Lord. In Jeremiah 13:23, the question is asked: "Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard its spots?" Of course, the answer is no. Just by an act of their free will, no one is able to change the color of their skin but every year thousands and thousands of homosexuals use their free will to say no to their sin and turn toward the Lord. In short, genetics loads the gun but free will pulls the trigger. Sodomites, Sodomettes, pedophiles, and bestialists have to continually use their free will to say no to their sin just like everyone else. When you say no to sin – any sin – and keep saying no without giving in to the temptation, you build up spiritual muscle and the temptation to sin becomes less and less.

1 Corinthians 6:9
9. Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators (Greek – pornos – general sexual sin), nor idolaters, nor adulterers (Greek – moichos – sexual intercourse between someone who is married and someone to whom that that person is not married), nor homosexuals (Greek – malakos – efffeminate, a passive partner, a male prostitute, a soft one, a boy or an adult male), nor Sodomites (Greek – arsenokoites – males who defile themselves with other men, an active partner, a male who has sex with an efffeminate male),
10. nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
18. Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

I think it's silly for a human to think that he SHOULD or even CAN prove that God exists!
Proof is not a prerequisite for belief. Evidence is enough to persuade one that a premise is true. There is abundant evidence for the existence of God. We need only look for it and accept what the evidence suggests. Moreover, after considerable observation I personally am convinced that the God of the Christian Bible is in fact the one and only, true God. The description of the God of the Christian Bible best comports with the evidences that we observe in our natural world.

I don't believe humans have all the knowledge to completely and scientifically prove or disprove the existence of a God. Religion generally accepts this and acknowledges the need for faith and/or divine/supernatural forces granting knowledge. Atheism is not the conclusion of science because science isn't conclusive. Agnosticism seems to me to be the most honest position based on scientific knowledge alone. That being said I am Christian/LDS because I believe knowledge can also come from the Holy Spirit testifying to one's soul.

Wouldnt really be a test if there was absolute proof of God. Maybe he wants to see what we do with our lives when there is no absolute proof of a higher power. I choose to believe but i can understand why others dont.

God does not exist, because there is evidence that he existed besides a book which may i add is 100s and 100s years old so he could have been rewritten so much. Humans shouldn't relieve on sources and worship such a thing if we have no scientific proof of it.

 Ntighe,

Unless you're been living in a cave, you should know that the Catholic Church's teachings regarding the worship of Mary have been evolving. The Catholic Church now teaches that all Catholics have to believe, under penalty of anathema, that Mary also had a virgin birth, lived a sinless life of perpetual virginity, didn’t deliver Jesus through the birth canal, and didn’t die but just bodily assumed into Heaven.

Contrary to Catholic teachings, Mary was not a perpetual virgin. It’s absolutely true that Mary, being a virgin, gave birth to Jesus but then Joseph and his wife, Mary, had a normal life and had four more sons and at least two more daughters.

Matthew 13:55
55. "Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers (Greek – adelphos – of the same womb) James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?
56. "And His sisters, are they not all with us?

None of His half-brothers or half-sisters believed in Jesus until they saw Him after His resurrection.

John 7:5
5. For even His brothers (Greek – adelphos – of the same womb) did not believe in Him.

Incidentally, one of Jesus’ half-brothers, James, wrote the epistle James and another half-brother, Judas, wrote the epistle Jude.

Galatians 1:19
19. But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord's brother (Greek – adelphos – of the same womb).

If you’re a Catholic and you doubt anything that I have said about the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings regarding Mary as late as 1974, just go to a Catholic bookstore and you will find numerous books, containing the imprimatur of the pope, written by Dr. Ludwig Ott who is one of the Catholic Church's greatest theologians. Dogmas are teachings which have to be believed by all Catholics under penalty of anathema (curse) by the Roman Catholic Church.

“Dogmas of the Catholic Church regarding Mary”

Extracted from "Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma" by Dr Ludwig Ott; Tan Books and Publishers, Inc. 1974. This book contains the imprimatur (seal) of the pope.

The Mother of the Redeemer

Mary's Motherhood of God

154. Mary is truly the Mother of God. (De fide.)

The Privileges of the Mother of God

155. Mary was conceived without stain of Original sin. (De fide.)
156. From her conception Mary was free from all motions of concupiscence. (Sent. communis.)
157. In consequence of a Special Privilege of Grace from God, Mary was free from every personal sin during her whole life. (Sent. fidei proxima.) She was immune from all sin mortal and venial.
158. Mary was a virgin before, during, and after the birth of Jesus Christ.
159. Mary conceived by the Holy Ghost without the co-operation of man. (De fide.)
160. Mary bore her Son without any violation of her virginal integrity. (De fide on the ground of the general promulgation of doctrine.)
161. Also after the Birth of Jesus Mary remained a Virgin. (De fide.)
162. Mary suffered a temporal death. (Sent. communior.)
163. Mary was assumed body and soul into Heaven. (De fide.)

Mary's Co-operation in the Work of the Redeemer

164. Mary gave the Redeemer, the Source of all graces, to the world, and in this way she is the channel of all graces. (Sent. certa.)
165. Since Mary's Assumption into Heaven no grace is conferred on man without her actual intercessory co-operation. (Sent. pia et probabilis.)
166. Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces by her co-operation in the Incarnation. (Mediatio in universali.)
167. Mary is the Mediatrix of all graces by her intercession in Heaven. (Mediatio in speciali.)
168. Mary, the Mother of God, is entitled to the Cult of Hyperdulia. (Sent certa.)

Go back and read number 158, 160, and 161 again. Catholics have to believe under penalty of anathema that Mary was a virgin even after she gave birth to Jesus Christ. Are you kidding me? If Jesus were not delivered in the usual manner, what did Mary do – cough up a hairball and the hairball turned into Jesus?

I'm conflicted about this myself, but a lot of scientific evidence supports the concept of a deity. The science itself supports the theory. I'm not basing my conclusion on a two thousand year old book that talks about men being swallowed by whales for three days and still magically surviving. If you don't believe me, look it up. And besides, believing in God doesn't mean that evolution didn't happen. It well could have, but it makes sense that God created the first living beings and the Earth itself.
However, if you disagree, it doesn't really matter. There's nothing that anyone can do or say that could sway anyone to either side of the argument. You cannot prove that God exists, just as you cannot prove that God does not exist. Look up the scientific facts. Face it, science isn't right all the time and it can't explain everything. In a lot of cases, science just makes things more confusing. Form your own opinions about it.

Personally, I'm agnostic and can see both sides of the argument. On the one hand, there's lots of evidence to support the big bang theory, but who knows, maybe God himself could have created the big bang. I know the story about how God created the world would suggest otherwise, but I don't think the story's meant to be taken literally. It's all symbolic, I think.

As well as that, there are so many complex and intricate things in nature that make it seem like the world would have to have been designed by someone (i.e. God). But that's not to say God definitely exists, because there's also so many things wrong with the world, and there's so much evil (moral and natural) that it makes me think, if God exists and he's omnipotent and therefore has the power to stop evil, why would he allow there to be evil in the world? And if he did design the world, why did he create things like volcanoes?

I'm not really sure either way, to be honest. But sometimes there are miracles in the world or even just things that happen that make you believe God does exist. Plus, there might not be any foolproof evidence that God exists, but there isn't any that he doesn't exist either.

 Ok....which one of you wrote this? I have to go with LD.
The first paragraph is good. Nice.
The complexity of nature does not suggest anything other than nature is complex to us pea brains. So far, it is downright amazing how much humans have figured out so I'm not real impressed with the complexity as a proof for a creator.
Why would there be evil if there was an omnipotent God? Because an omnipotent god could be evil. The question would be, why would an omnipotent god who was not evil allow there to be evil?
It's not impossible to come up with a reasonable answer (just reasonable, not proof or absolute truth).
First one has to have a perfect, eternal god which by definition means there is no other. No beginning, no end, nothing other than perfect eternity. All that could ever be. Beyond any measure. No matter where is the center.
Then, this god decides to make something in its own image which is clearly impossible because there can be no other. But this god is going to do it anyway because this god can do the impossible. So....this god does the impossible. There is only one way it can be done. Something other than perfect is created. What is other than perfect?
And there you have one possible explanation.
As far as miracles in the world, to the best of my knowledge there is no proof of such a thing.
And the end is fine. Not only is there no proof that this god doesn't exist, there can be no proof of such a thing.
The closest thing I know to proof that there is such a god is our persons. There is something about many humans that suggests the possibility of something other than this life and death. There has been a gravitation to such thinking throughout all of human history even in the most isolated of human presence.

Than who is one who created mankind, who created galaxy, who created the universe, who controlling air, water, who is providing you food, have you ever thought you put water(sperm) in your wife womb who turned it into baby? Who gave food to you, if he stops the rains who will give you water, every thing in this universe is getting direction from my lord, who created moon, sun and the stars? They traveled in predefined way. Why sun always appear from the east and drop in the west, who controlled the weather if no God then who is monitoring and ordering them. There is no god but Allah, he is the creator of the universe and our lord. We should obey him and ask for his mercy all the time.

God exists for each and every one of us. We all have different gods/ religions. Muslims, Christians and Jews pray for the same lord, even if they do that in different ways. Furthermore if you are an atheist, then you believe is something else and that qualifies it as your god. The problem here is, that every persons believes are different and in my opinion if you're an atheist or a religious person, why should you care what other people think or believe? It's their free will and faith and you do not own the right to attack that or claim that it's wrong, because feeling can never be qualified as right or wrong

Whether God exists or not depend on whether you believe it or not.Faith in God gives you the strength to work your hardest and push the furthest.I was an atheist at one time. And like many atheists, the issue of people believing in God bothered me greatly. What is it about atheists that we would spend so much time, attention, and energy refuting something that we don't believe even exists?! What causes us to do that?But then I didn't realize that the reason the topic of God weighed so heavily on my mind, was because God was pressing the issue. I have come to find out that God wants to be known. He created us with the intention that we would know him. He has surrounded us with evidence of himself and he keeps the question of his existence squarely before us. For example, the DNA code in our cells and the law of nature.The complexity of Earth.

Well, maybe you still don't believe in God but tell me chicken or egg first?Nobody could answer that. The only reason was that God created all these beautiful things you're seeing,feeling, hearing and tasting now so stop denying its existence when He's still beside you.

Why does water even exist? How does hydrogen bind to oxygen in the first place?Maybe there is some theory behind it.But who made the theory happen-God.

I may have been an admirer of Science and definitely a supporter of the Illuminati.The Church tried to spread it's own influence about Jesus and Christianity even though Science can't prove it.But that's the reason why God exists,it explains things that Science itself cannot.

We can't simply say that God doesn't exist. There is no clear evidence, not in the both sides whether God exists or not. One can show many scientific evidence, theory etc for claiming that God doesn't exists as well as God does exist. But none of them completely proves either of it.

The existence of God is a belief rather than an established truth. This belief comes inherently on a human being from parents/societies belief. Then as time goes by people acquires knowledge, experience that helps them to set a belief of their own. Now, the intelligence of people differs from person to person and each individuals perception on the existence of God would obviously vary depending on the people surrounding him/her, religion, society he/she raised in.

I, personally, believe in God. I'm an admirer of science but still now I haven't found any scientific theory or proof that completely eliminates the existence of God. One of the most prominent theory of Science, "The Big Bang Theory", the non believer in God most of the time mentions to prove non existence of God can't satisfy most of the believer of God. The argument still remains about what caused the Big Bang initially. There must have been something or someone that caused the big bang. If we assume that God created the Big Bang, let it flow in it's own pace following some set of rules and then sometimes intervenes to keep the universe in order, the whole thing adds up.

But still there remains a lot to debate about the existence of God. But with my little knowledge and experience, I believe in God.

It all depends on how one interprets the idea of God. As for me, I view the idea of God as the human conscious and awareness that exists within us, whether spiritual or psychological, rather than the idea that God is a single individual. But to each their own.

Okay, I believe in God because how did everything coincidentally get created? If you spit in the stupid evolution theory, what made evolution? There must be some kind of creator. The big bang theory? Well who did that? Coincidence. No I think its a greater being: God himself

First of all, Big Bang Theory is a stupid show that doesn't know much, so if that is where your getting your information then its probably all false.

Second, there is an idea getting out that maybe God did create us, but when God created us we looked different then what we look like now. Which means the Evolution Theory can work with Christianity.

Third, even the most famous Scientific people that we know said that there is a God, but he created the universe and then left it alone. They didn't say that there is not a God.

There is evidence being found now that states that mabye God is real after all.

The big bang is a theory not proof. The idea of god is also a theory. Why is the idea of a being above our level of understanding more unrealistic than the musings of scientists? The gods people worship today I DO believe are the construct of human need for an authority figure above all. I don't however dismiss the idea of a being or potential beings that could be labeled as gods.

 Ahmadi Muslims believe in the Unity of God but before creation a Unity God could not exist nor could it create as existence is a relative word and one must exist in relation to another. Relationships are containers that hold two or more other objects being also objects themselves. At minimum you would need at least 3 discrete relationships to have a self existing object. In Christianity this is called the trinity.

(Taking the Against position here may be self-contradictory)

Just because theists can not present proportional evidence, does not instantly mean that a monotheistic, omnipotent, omniscient God does not exist. It is still possible he exists. There is just no sufficient justification to prove the claim that he exists.

And also, simply asking "Could you prove his existence" does not prove his absence.

 He definitely exists in the faith of individuals, though.

If you need proof I'll give it to you right now.

This does not prove the existence of some conscious, invisible being looking down upon us, it's a proof that there something does indeed exist that cannot be explained by science, something we can safely call G-d.

You are a speck. A worthless piece of junk. A collection of animated particles of matter with no free will, no long term influence, and there is no point to you existing for the fleeting century that those unstable molecules stay together to be what we call you.

Yet somehow, you have this insatiable urge to do two things: Live and reproduce.

Every single living thing on this planet shares these two insane, unexplainable needs. There's no gene for it. No DNA that gives the need to exist and to pass on existence to others.

So if I were to point a gun to your head, why would you still run? In case you were unaware of it before, I have just shown you the complete uselessness of your being and how little anyone will care about you after mere years after you are dead, buried, and forgotten forever.

The urge for existence, that which cannot be explained by logic, reason, or science, is what we can call the undeniably existing G-d.

God does exist because some religions believe it. It's unacceptble
God is the creator of everything how dare you say that in front of me i believe god is real and no one can take that belief from me
even if i'm a intermediate student doesn't mean that some physco can take my belief away from me i am who i am!

 Everyone is entitled to their beliefs, religious people(like you) AND atheists(like me and the creator of this debate). So don't be a hypocrite and just say what you believe in in a calmer manner ;D

There has to be a "High Power" that started it all. We couldn't have just popped on Earth randomly. Even if you believe in evolution, something had to create the primates.

 well we know that something else other than god created primates, just look at an evolutionary tree, but yes if we trace science far back enough we come to a halt and maybe that could be where god or some higher being comes in, no one ever said evolution or science disproves religion

You don't have to see something to believe it. The energy and the forces are all around us. But your ignorance blocked your soul and you cannot manifest your true power. God does exist, but also the brain-washing of our society.

 You don't have to see something to believe it, that's very true. You do however need some evidence. I know gamma waves exist because we can measure them, for example.

It is irrational to believe in something without any evidence to do so.

Having studied medical science and physics (quantum mechanics, string theory, etc) and cosmology, I can safely say that the probability of a God is very high. The real question is not whether God exists or not, but rather do we believe he exists? If you don't believe in God, then even if he appears in front of you, you can claim that's a spirit and is a devil, so in your eyes, God will never exist. Therefore, the definition of what you think God is, is very important. This is relativity at its best. What appear as God to us, may look as the Devil to you!

Now I don't know about you, but when I read about Near Death Experiences of people from different countries and different culture having the same experience of going to heaven/hell, it's too much of a coincidence. Plus in physics, there are laws such as the laws of thermodynamics that states energy can never be destroyed, so when we die, what happens to consciousness if it can't be destroyed?

For the people that believes in evidence, then may I suggest to you that we humans understand too little and yet want to believe we're too smart. Do you know whatever we have managed to observe so far, makes up only about 4% of the actual universe out there? We don't know what made up those 96% of dark matter and dark energy. We don't even understand DNA well enough to cure cancer. If I was a billion years old alien visiting Earth, I would probably laugh at the human species for thinking we have evidence for everything despite the fact that we don't even understand our own DNA well enough. As the alien, I would feel sorry for stupid human species for killing each other and yet thinking they are wise enough to have direct evidence of God.

I am deeply passionate about science and science has also taught me that if I can't rule something 100% out, then there is always a probability that it can be true, in this case, the existence of God.

Above all, there is something that I think having faith in God is important. Let's assume both possibilities, if there's indeed a God, then it's a no brainer we benefit from our faith in God. If there's no God, then we STILL benefit if we practice the compassionate and love and kindness preached in the religious teachings. If everyone is kind and compassionate, then not only isn't there war, but the trillions of dollars spent on nuclear weapons could have been spent to build homes and nice delicious food for all. Those money could also be spent on curing illness and eradicate cancer. So if you realize whether God exists or not, it's always a good option to believe in God, then suddenly it makes sense.

I could write a lot more indirect evidence of God but faith in God doesn't have to come from Science, it has to come from within you. Like I said, if you don't believe in God, even if he appears in front of God, you will claim God is a Devil, it's your choice.

 FIRST OF ALL MORALITY IS NOT A RESULY OF RELIGION..BUT OF EVOLUTION...THE EMOTION OF KINDNESS AND LOVE ARE NECESSARY FOR HUMAN SURVIVAL AND NOT A RESSULT OF RELIGION...SECONDLY AGREED HUMAN DONT KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THE UNIVERSE AROUND MAYBE NOT EVEN 4%...AND FROM UR ARGUMENT IT SEEMS EVEN U BELEIVE THERE IS A PROBABILITY ABOUT HIS EXISTENCE...BUT WHAT REASONS YOU HAVE TO BELEIVE NEEDS AN EXISTENCE OF GOD...WHICH TURNS THE SCALE IN HIS FAVOUR??

Well heres a question, do you believe in LOVE? Really? Well if you do, do tell me can you see love? No. Can you hear love? No. Exactly but its presence is still there? Yes. This is exactly like God. He does exist, although we cannot hear or see him, we can feel His presence, especially through worship and prayer. This is MY opinion. God Bless.

 I'm not so sure we can't see love. There is, after all, physical evidence of it in brain activity.
