I know this question sounds like I'm trolling but I assure you I'm trying to ask it legitimately. I see questions all the time on HubPages like "Do you believe in god?" and "If god doesn't exist, prove it." I would say these are perfectly logical questions for believers to ask of non believers, but I'm curious how those same believers would answer them about the FSM. Keep in mind, I'm not asking why you think god is real over the FSM, I'm asking if you can prove the FSM's non existence.

Well thanks a lot.
FWIW, I'm an atheist and I don't think this answer was condescending at all. Everybody gets to have an opinion.
Thanks Georgie, I wasn't trying to say Atheists are wrong. I just meant the word means the absolute absence of belief, that really isn't possible. However, the classification of Atheism is true. People can believe anything they want, or not lol
Hey, it's ok. Whoever says we can't all get along is dead wrong! :)
That or too cynical for their own good! LOL
Atheism isn't the absolute absence of belief. It only refers to ones belief in the existence of deities. You can have religion and beliefs without believing in god.
Making a statement, then saying 'it rings true' does not add any strength at all to the weight of your argument. Descartes said - 4+4 can only = 8, he was as sure as anyone could be he wasn't being deceived on that - Atheists feel the same about god.
Sorry Doctor but this goes against the teachings of the FSM. FSM teachings are believable too because they are in a book: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gospel_of_the_Fly...
The similarities between deities and religions can be argued as one assimilating and/or copying another. Religious people aren't insane, they're just terrified of death and uncertainty. It's understandable to want god, but not necessary to be strong.
