I see a lot of people trying to use logical arguments to try to prove something is true. A logically sound argument is logically sound. It doesn't mean that the argument is true. Can logic ever be used in its own to prove something is true? Or is logic just an excuse for when there is no evidence?

Yep I always have my stick with me.
Me personally, no. But when I talk with theists and they talk about proof, they start trying to prove it through logic rather than evidence all the time.
The organization in the universe is evidence of God. Also the life of Jesus Christ. He did things that only a God could do..
I understand that you believe it, and you're saying it's true, but that's not proof. Saying something is true does not make it true.
That's true. Are you an atheist, thiest or agnostic? The thing with proving God, is you have to prove it to yourself. It can't be proven generally. Well, it can, but we aren't smart enough to do that yet.
I'm an atheist agnostic, actually. How can you prove a supernatural entity to yourself? Are you capable of proving unicorns to yourself? What about alternative deities? Can you prove them to yourself as well? If so, do you believe everything?
Imagine you are the only one that has ever tasted salt. Can you prove do the world what salt tastes like? You can't, but you can eat salt and know what it tastes like.
If you were shown evidence that God exists, what would you do with it?
But you're saying that I can't be shown evidence. Which is it?
I can describe tastes and sounds and colors. It's a false analogy. Besides millions of people claim to know different gods. They all proved it to themselves?
Snowman, can you please describe God? What do you see in your mind's eye when you pray or 'talk' to God?
BTW - The universe is highly dis-organized, what we can see of it.
@JM: I meant if I could show you how to prove it to yourself what would you do with that opportunity.
@Austin: There are 3 members of the Godhead. The Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost. The father and Jesus have bodies. (out of space to type)
How would I know that what I was experiencing was genuine and not a product of my imagination? How do you prove which deity it came from? You need a lot more than internal "proof" and subjectivity to demonstrate something is real.
OK, just describe any one of your Gods, please. I would like a physical description, or describe what it is that YOU see in your mind. Do you see a physical being? a spirit? a cloud? a shadow? What?
The Father has a body like a man. He glows brighter than the sun. He is all powerful, all loving, and all knowing. Jesus is a separate being with the same attributes. The Holy Ghost is a spirit that guides us to do what's right.
