Proof That God Does Not Exist

Updated on November 21, 2019

What can be Known?

Listen, listen, you in the back pay attention, both eyes, ya ya yThe local news calls me an "Atheistic Satanic Cult Leader". Claire Graham, pointed out the obvious fakery of a photograph presented as Evidence, on all occasions I'm aware of. This is a clear example of knowledge crime. What I Know, and how I Know it is legally persecuted.

I've never been a Satanist. Known some, less crazy than the local pastor. At least I've never seen them do canibal rituals. They seem to have stuck to candles and symbols. The game of pretend I witnessed wasn't on the Pentecostal level. Heck! they didn't even consider exercising me.

In the United States Infantry, asking 'Who's your leader?' Is like asking 'Where's Negan?'. Everyone is expected to seek leadership responsibilities. They say cult brainwashing is intense, is it Warrior Cult Intense. So cult leader is applicable, death cult too. It's the only job when you say 'you like it', that's when they know you're crazy.

I know atheists get a bad reputation, especially in small highly religious communities. I didn't arrive to the Truth that there is no Supernatural Agent!, with reckless abandon. It is something I can demonstrate.

I caution, without full reading someone might get a false impression: A lack of legitimacy of all things, because God grants all things legitimate. It's a big deal, strongly attached to identity and a sense of belonging.

But the Bible is the inspired word of God!

Human thought has improved since the Bronze Age. To believe the Bible is the source of all knowledge, which it claims; many places, many ways. That it is infallible truth, is against Reason. Pi does not equal 3. Pi is an irrational number by Mathematical Proof.

There are many more claims that can be argued

https://creation.com/does-the-bible-say-pi-equals-3

but it's literal interpretation is contradictory to geometric proof. If a designer wanted to measure rotational distance 3 would be a very bad constant. Yes!, 22 divided by 7 is better than 3.14, even in boat design. These are things an extra universal agency should know, the Egyptians knew it wasn't 3. Believing the Bible in an absolute literal sense is absurd.

Now, listen carefully.

To believe that the Bible is an analogy to live a better life, through its' example, is counter to Logic. The Bible is Erroneous by all defining characteristics of Erroneous. Only 1 of which is validity. The accounts of the Bible to live your life by are not just fictitious; they are by all the ways in which there is to know something. They are imaginings of other people's imaginary friends. 'Its santa stories for adults, supposedly to get on the nice list, but being nice has nothing to do with that list' Arron Ra

It is contextually erroneous. The context of applying Bronze and Early Iron Age moral precepts to modern life, as a source of guidance, is not a good idea. The expectation is fraught with error. Much like a lie to manipulate children into behaving well. Except this God is not nice, Jesus declares I shall be slain before him. Not just for being an apostate, but i also do not bring enough people into the insanity.

Check out this article! https://www.salon.com/2014/07/15/why_christians_get_the_10_commandments_wrong_partner/

It is self contradictory. The Ten Commandments are supposed to be an achievement of humanity. It resides within a book that is a fraudulent account of history. It is very difficult to flee Egypt into Egypt. It is more difficult to fight different nations while moving north through Egypt, then to claim Nationhood while still in Egypt. The authors of the Books of Moses may not have known the extent of King Ramses the Third's Egypt. The Ten Commandments say "thou shalt not kill" but then immediately follow with instructions to kill the first born son. Not child sacrifice but 'when they come of age tell them that this is in accordance with the God of Abraham who guided us out of Egypt'.

There are then accounts of Fruit Bearing Trees, which are a euphemism for female children. Even in Bronze Age moral culture these crimes could not be addressed by name.

I have read the Bible many times, many versions. It is full of horrible imaginings given license by imaginary friends. Many of these are more detrimental to adapt to modern life then others. Asking your imaginary friend for forgiveness when in error, is terrible advice.

Most of my family is highly religious, and their imaginary friends are Scary!! It might hear me so I have to whisper.

When in error we should use the logical progression of Err correction. An Err is an error that has been corrected or is in process. Much of Logic was originally in Latin, written by Romans not monks. Is that early enough for non-postmodernist evagical wheaton college child bullying for analytical thought bullshit!

1. Observe that we are in Err. This one can be tricky, but they get much easier. Being able to say i made a mistake is harder for some than others at different times. I try to say it out loud even if its a mumble.

2. Stop or reduce frequency or impact of Err. Try not to continue being wrong. Fixing our errors requires feedback so we know when we have corrected it. Faster feedback leads to faster learning.

3. Make reparations for any harm the Err caused. My bad, let me help is an excellent way to build human relationships.

4. Prevent future Err. 'That's what lead to me being wrong! I was doing it wrong all along!'

5. Allow others to learn from our Err. Hey you know what this is an example!

Being correct or incorrect has moral applications. What kind of habits should I teach myself. Not staying up late so that i can wake up in the morning. This enables me to function earlier than everyone else. I can then meet my families requirements. Or should thats like twice the minimum wage.

To use falsehood as a foundation for error correction will have disastrous results in modern society. We can replace many of the behaviors based on religious teachings. Logic is the study of error. Talking to imaginary friends, or worse the voices in your head, is not an advisable method of error correction. Divine Forgiveness in a moral error.

Like giving examples of things? I'm not going with low hanging fruit on this one. The humor is in the hubris.

Divine Forgiveness is a moral error. It needs to be corrected with the logical progression of error correction.

What is the best method of correcting mistakes?

Powers of Independent Observation

I make the assertion that there is no God. I had found myself in error, step 1 in the logical progression of error correction.

We need some way of knowing we are in error. This can be improved by natural observation. This is a very rudimentary process of making observations that can be confirmed by others. We have limits with which we can perceive something. To convince others a demonstration may be necessary. Can the claim being made be observed? If I believe a sunset is made a certain way, how can I show this to be true?

Anecdote of child gullibility: when I was a kid I watched Hook with Robin Williams. I felt the electric tingle rushing through me with happy thoughts. My happy thought was my mom. In my exuberance I climbed the flower pedestal and jumped knowing I would fly. Didn't even consider the landing over porcelain. I rode on the back of a motorcycle to the hospital. I fought hard as they eventually gave me 46 stitches up my still kicking leg. Reality is not auto-generated.

There are many ways to be wrong, if I blindly guess I will most certainly will be. When the Truth does reveal itself, it is always beyond our wildest imaginings. We can make observations from different points and compare the traits. We gather evidence to make models of what could be, and see if they are compatible. With this act of humility we start The Great Combine Harvester of Knowability.

Using critical and analytical thinking we can separate a kernel of truth from the shaf. These claims are now able to constructed using object permanence, and cause-and-Effect. The parts of a claim that are falsifiable can then be demonstrated to have some relationship to reality. Through this testable measure we can build rudimentary evidence. The claim that your personal Jesus is an imaginary friend is observable.

What observable trait does not subcategorize it as an imaginary friend? Every falsifiable claim, that is found false after scrutiny, is evidence against its existence. Every argument given that is consistent with god(s) being imaginary characters is evidence that they are just that. The unknowability, lack of demonstrable phenomenon, and consistency of experience with that of an imaginary friend; leads to exactly that. I find it odd that the same people gathering to play pretend and talk to imaginary friends, are also the same people against playing dress up like trans-folk. This is based on how other people's imaginary friend has influenced theirs, and then harm people for making the outside look like the inside. To place imaginary friends guidance over knowledge gained from reality, is a blunder.

Peer Review Observations

With this methodology we can further understand the world around us. We can use the scientific process. Science is secular in practice. It is independent of anybody's religious misgivings, because playing pretend isn't as absolutely repeatable.

Step1 is to make observations. This gives us a basic understanding with which we can correlate things to each other. This begins with the initial confusion and dismay. When the world is warping into a twisted towel, I slip into a breathing exercise. Deep slow breaths drawing with full lung capacity: At least 9 seconds in, 9 seconds out. Squeezing out every little bit. Full ventilations while entering a state of calm awareness.

Step 2 is to create a hypothesis. We make an educated guess on what could be a relationship among some of the observations we make. This is formed into a falsifiable statement. Does the united states and washington state constitution protect the civil rights of those who are not religious? Do I have the 1st amendment right to be nonreligious? Does religious discrimination extend to me the non religious?

Step 3 is to test the hypothesis in the form of experiment. The point of an experiment is to demonstrate that the statement has a truthful relationship with reality. The best way to do this is by trying to disprove the statement. If the relationship is not based in reality the experiment should fail. This is repeated with further experiment, and the hypothesis changes to fit the evidence.

Step 4 develop a Theory. Colloquially speaking: guess, suspicion, and theory are used interchangeably. Scientifically speaking: a Theory is a set of laws that explain an array of phenomena that is then submitted to a peer-review process. "Just a Theory" is equivalent to 'Just the best way we can explain observable reality'. For a new Theory to be generally accepted it must explain observations better than the existing understanding. The theory must be more useful and have greater observed predictive power.

"God did it" is not useful and has no observed predictive power. Like water from a rock the spring of knowlege flows, when Truth is found it floods the desert. There may not be one great truth. If there is it may be reality, but I'm not a physicist.

To verify something supernatural it must interact with the natural. There is no indication of design or redesign in nature that I have been able to verify. That would be evidence for a supernatural power with intent, but there seems to be none. There are things that I can't explain, this does not mean they are divine, miraculous, blessings, enchantments, invisible spirits, or magic.

How can we apply this to our personal lives?

Ethics can be a scientific process that is submitted to peer review. Ethics can be derived from Observation that are consistent with the wellbeing of what is in context: people, animals, families, tribes, groups, cultures, nations, environments, the world, and so on. We can examine these relationships and develop patterns of behavior that increase wellbeing. Legitimacy of governance, if it reflective of reality, is intrinsic with the greater well-being of its constituents. Propagating falsehood as a claim to legitimacy is unethical. It is also a losing strategy. This check marks all boxes of who is harmed. If successful then you, and your group of people, are basing your responses to reality on fiction. You and your influence will suffer needlessly.

Why I'm an atheist is a reflection of how I have improved my methodology of understanding. I base it on reason with reasonable statements. I then make them logically sound. I back these with observations in the world around me. These observations can be peer reviewed. This knowledge is useful and increases the well-being of those around me.

Whats the harm?

I may be the jerk that points out the game of pretend but these games are not harmless. I spent 10 years as a social pariah, not able to have a sufficient job or a place to live, due to insurance reasons. This is a direct result of the legal charges filed against me and demonstrably false accusations. I wasn't the best version of me at the time and it got worse as my ability to survive evaporated. I fell into to portion of the population that dies of exposure in the winter, is targeted by all means of victimization, that place where hope is usually lost only regained in fleeting moments on the most temporary goals. The first few winters where the hardest. I learned that people sleeping on the streets are much less the perpetrators of vile actions. We as a society don't want them sleeping on the streets because of whats done to them.

How can a person survive without reliable structure for habits? Its based on adaptability to change. There is this weird transformation and I learned to thrive again. How to maintain consistent habits due to absence of means. A break down of priorities for life as I was constantly challenged. Fighting for my life against groups of people many times. 'Not Now, Not Like This, Not Tonight' is a mental chant much like "just keep swimming". I managed to maintain my Identity, by continuously transforming myself. In a process of adaptive behavioral modification, much like "be like water"-Bruce Lee.

I know many highly religious people. People whose self identity drives the good work they do, every single day. They do not need God to grant them legitimacy. Their belief that it does is self flagellation.

I'm not an anti-theist, theists are people. Anti-theist sounds like anti-Mr. Rogers. I'm anti-deism; did a flip on that one. I used to hide behind this obscure belief when I felt physically threatened, there are many more physical threats than assault. I now condemn its practice as the search for truth where there is none. The belief not the people, and not in the weird Jesus way: Hate is really Love. The idea needs to wither away, because Words have meaning.

Hate

Hate is a word I learned early. It's not every kid of another color or even everyone of them taught to Hate. Its Hate that drives a group of kids to bully and beat a child half their size, as a group. It's those comments and dispositions of adults that encourage children to attack. The victim blaming of minority children for being, like winning a game of marbles. Chants of racial slurs passed down the hallways. The teasing of children talking to me. It's a lot for a 6 year old to learn.

Skeksis

I have been persecuted to the point of death; not just by cult apostles. In the 10th year of the 10 year statute of limitations to present evidence; I stopped a kidnapping and the police arrested me for it.

"Bet it was the dad" is an interjection I get a lot.

No, armed crazy ex-boyfriend trying to abduct a 3 year old girl in an elementary school zone. The girl's mother was fleeing an extremely abusive Antonio Jackson, who was abusing her and her children.

"What did it turn into?" Is another common interjection.

Acquitted 2nd degree Assault.

I was in full protective daddy adrenal rush. I have kids in my car, and it's in front of my home. I significantly toned down my violence after I disarmed him.

One police officer with a body camera was maintaining my attention after the EWU security

drove away. He began pumping his hand to his gun in an aggressively hesitant distraction. Another officer snuck behind me. I have been trained my entire life. This is where the people who do know these things call B.S. A bit of my magic. Not a magician's illusion or some parlor trick. I train for mental focus under extreme stress. I become hyper attentive to every sensation and sense. The world begins to slow. I hear not just the footsteps but also the sifting weight of other officers as they make inappropriate jokes. I hear the sharp breath of a mouth breather sneaking up behind me, slipping his punch. He was trying to knock me into the police officer with a body camera. A set up so that it looked like I went for his gun. There was shock and dismay, this turned into an inquisitiveness as I assured them I was "very aware". I repeated a body language of both palms up, repeating to them "officer" because that is how they identified themselves to me. I continued to hear the shuffle of toe walkers and a sudden jerk of grass, clothing, and plastic. With a quick side step to my left the officer blundered into the cop with a body cam. He intended to throw his shoulder into me. I kept a calm voice, palms up "officer" as they decided what to do next. I'm very good at staying alive.

Antonio Jackson began telling the cops why he was trying to kidnap a toddler, but was interrupted continually with "Shut Up!, I could arrest you for that".

They caught him trying to discard his weapon before they gave it back to him. They didn't interview most of the witnesses, ignored the few they did, and gave an amazing display of supernatural belief.

They lied in court, not just about witness testimony! In story released by the Cheney Free Press, 11 June 2017: '..Representatives..' (June 11, 2017 edition has been removed from online archive) the Cheney Police Department ended it's pilot body cam program. It was after many Judicial Orders to hand over the body camera footage that Officer McMurphy perjured himself "the Cheney Police Department doesn't have body cameras and never had them or used them".

I won in court, many officers embarrassing themselves by falsely testifying in front of Boy Scouts. I had stopped an armed kidnapper who couldn't wait for the 3 day gun waiting period. His mom bought him a gun, and Antonio Jackson has continued to kidnap and rape.

When I interact with law enforcement it is genuinely while they harass the public at large. Pulled over regularly for doing under the speed limit, searched and detained for suspicion of drugs, while I write in a parking lot. I get ticketed for quietly reading. I was brought to county booking because the cop, who knows me, didn't believe it was me on my ID.

Persecuting me to the point of death; doesn't mean I die, until I do. This is the cost of knowledge. I survive because of this knowledge; fools die more easily.

"But why live?" if you are an atheist.

I do not believe that any part of my consciousness survives my death. I do not believe that an invisible, otherwise useless, organ transcends Reality into the supernatural.

I do believe my actions echo through existence. I change the world, being a better me than yesterday. I influence our Reality. I literally live for the chance to make all the difference in the world to real people in real ways.

I change the fear of my own morality from something to hide from into a driving force. Like a sail in a gale

Is magic real?

I might be a little magic but if you ever see me dancing in an old forest, at night in the middle of the rainy season, around some symbols drawn in the mud *Shake it! Sha-Sha-Shake It! Shake-it Like a polaroid picture.* Night land navigation on Fort Lewis may seem impossible. First time go nearly the first private back, I wonder if it on a board somewhere? Some of what I do my seem strange to others. My strangest is verbally recognizing err. Pointing out my own mistakes is often understood as stupidity by coworkers. It is a mental note that I can change my behavior. It confirms to some degree that I may have made a mistake. This is a practice to change errors I make. I made the Err of believing in God.

Are we overstepping?

Some brilliant minds have suggested that 'science overstates when it comes to ethics and religion overstates when it comes to natural law'. But if ethics are based outside interaction with the real world, then they are Fallacy. To give understanding to reality through fraudulent fiction, is to base our existence on a lie. Reality can be classified into observable components such as object permanence and causality, both objective truths. Things can exist and things can happen. Ethics are a consideration of things that can happen, these bias our responses with action. There are the ethics that put children in cages, these actions are inconsistent with a Free society. A Free society can discuss and take collective actions based on what it is found acceptable. Repression of which has the consequence of an armed public. These actions are bad and can be laid out into a matrix. Who, and to what extent, is harmed by those actions are victims, society, individual, and others. 2 to 3 checks generally wins but there is alway extensive grey filling, not a simple check box. Moral values are non quantifiable in nature.

But how is this useful?

Morality is constantly convoluted with individual behavior, and impulsive behavior; which for the most part is good, in fact counted on. The web of impulsive behavior takes place on the stage of reality that never resets itself: n n is never more than 1. Acting on our intentions is definitively subjective.

There are a handful of requirements that abuse culture needs to survive. It needs specific things non abusive cultures with lower risk inflation can more easily adapt to changes.

Silence is required of victims and witnesses.

Vulnerability, they need victims not to resist.

Privacy, they need to teach and learn from others.

Justification for their illegitimacy.

Move group to group separated by Time for prey.

Dispose of their waste, after you have been consumed, they rid themselves; long term / short term.

Control Identity, 'you are because we say you are'; such as 'a victim that should be victimized'.

Isolating victims, so that friends and family can not defend them.

They require passive behavior to Legitimate Threats!

They have a specific progression of consumption: Space, Time, Effort, Income, Invest, Security. Short term and long term exploitation vary only in repeatability.

Space, your personal occupancy. They will challenge your space looking for weakness.

Time allocation for specific purposes. They will manipulate your Time through the Space that they exploited; devaluing your Time. Justifications often relate to proximity.

Effort is under attack, as Effort is energy spent over time. The devaluing of our effort is then justified relating to Time spans.

Income in this sense can be meaningfully defined as recognition of efforts. Devesting us of needs and wants; because clearly our effort is worthless.

Invest must then also have a more specific meaning; the allocation of surpluses in others gainful purposes. They will try to transfer our exploitation to another.

Security in this sense is risk prevention to ensure stability. They need ample opportunity to routinely present itself. They prefer us unable to resist. This may be repeated or just when they choose the opportunity.

Identity imagined using 4 Lobes of Influence, where the influences overlap is Identity. These 4 Lobes of Influence are the 4 ways that we can influence each other: Knowledge, Social, Resource, and Physical.

We first influence what another person knows, specific knowledge is denied in the act of exploitation.

We then engage in a social behaviors, social behaviors are strictly adhered to during exploitation.

We share and exchange resources with one another; deviance of worth must be extreme because exploitation is high risk.

We physically contact each other, in friendly non-harmful manners, while greeting and departing. Physical control is the thrill they always seek. Their lives are easily disrupted by change. Often they lack self control, so they must control others.

By understanding the method of social interaction, we can observe the process of exploitation. Exploitation of people is observably antagonist to civil society and increase the expense of all exchanges through risk. There are much more economically effective manners of exchange.

But I promised to address Legitamacy.

It a societies imperative to protect the highest ranking members, to the degree of legitimacy. This legitimacy extends through the constituents to the most vulnerable; which must be protected by them. To do otherwise is to dissolve a society with inflated risk. I can find no other observable source of legitimacy of force then the protection of others. To apply force outside of immediate self defense. Legitimate Self Defence is a universal right, true with evil encarnate. Not that there won't be consequences, even persecution. But to apply force on another outside of that is the realm of legitimacy. Force comes by overwhelming influence, and is inherent in many relationships, not all with negative incognation. We are forced by social coersion to due many things, like pay taxes. The legitimacy of that power is in the protection of the interests of those constituents that are governed. To claim otherwise: legitimacy through Divine Authority, seems counter to Natural Law.

Application to current events

This is unlike women regulating their own bodies. That is an extension of physical control of an abused group. If fetuses are children, why won't they include them in their already ballooning infant mortality rate? This is coupled with teen suicide. What they proclaim to be a child's rights is really the persecution of women. It is a biological need that we regulate our bodies. These laws are specifically allowing the forced conception of incestuously raped children and non-reporting of their abusers. Not just young pregnant women start choosing suicide. It is also older boys to young men feeling overwhelmed and by actions they were denied knowledge of, as they were struck by some of the most powerful impulses known to living organisms. This brings into question how much influence a potential father can claim. At what point is their legitimacy for forced conception. None it is counter to Natural Law (reality based), Organisms must Regulate. In practice it is the requirement of raped women to support rape culture with their bodies. As is pontificated by radically abusive culture.

There is also the degree of harm, its dispersion, and considerations for time when legitimate force is applied.

Pursuit of Equity

"How can we really know anything?" - Wheaton B.S

My understanding of methodology is based upon 7 assumptions. 6 objective, one of those relatively objective, and a subjective inference.

The assumptions of Reason are: 1. Object Permanence and 2. Causality. Things exist and things can happen. This allows the construction of Geometric Proof.

I can be wrong. The assumption of logic is: 3. errors can be made. This is not the great act of humility, it is simply not expecting perfect knowledge of ourselves or other people.

Natural Observation claims 4. Only observations I can make with my bodily senses can be confirmed honestly by others. Many have tried none have succeeded. My influence is tethered to my body in observable Reality. This is the great act of humility. That reality does not bend to my imagination.

The scientific assumption of peer review, 5. That if relationships are legitimate, then they can be confirmed independently by others.

6. Agency is an Objective Assumption that is sub categorized relatively. That i can discriminately pursue one outcome over another. This is Ethics as an understanding of what I generally should do for desired outcomes.

Morality is subjective as an assumption 7. Morality is the behavior we practice that ethics is supposed to modify. Morality is subject to environment, influence, and often entirely impulse. These can not be quantified into a metric that I am aware of.

These are my 7 basal assumptions that I Know the world with. These are behavior expansive in nature and counter the control needed by abuse culture. It is possible to end the acceptance of systematic abuse.
