What Would You Do If You Were Faced With Completely Irrefutable Evidence That There Was No God?


And I mean completely. As irrefutable as 1+1=2. I asked my friend about this and he had a mini-breakdown so I thought I'd ask you guys. Still not certain if I'm just unsatisfied with his answer or I'm just evil. Or both.

    An excellent life mission whether or not one believes in a supreme being I'd say :)

    Here's the irony, people can't prove God exists or that God doesn't exist - interesting isn't it?

    Part of the assumption is that you can't question it, that's what irrefutable means. It's so completely convincing that even you yourself cannot reject the logic and evidence. It's a question of how you would respond in that scenario.

    I'm reminded, by your comment, EP, of a concept Alan Watts put forth in the 70s in "The Book". My best interpretation of that idea is that the WHOLE is God. That intrigues me. I know that's not exactly what you you meant, but it reminded me of it.

    Ironically, most atheists would feel the same about the religious - easily swayed. I can assure you I have no weak heart and a deep love for life and humanity, just not a belief in a diety.

    Well thanks for not taking offense at the question (like half these people) but that really doesn't answer my question. If you were to gain omnipotence and know there is no god how would you react? Consider it a test of your imagination.

    I'd say,"Thank you God. I appreciate this gold medal you placed upon my neck in recognition that my mind actively explored the possibilities of Your existence or non-existence. And yes, God, I DID understand that that was why you gave us intellect.

    The problem here is that I asked you to objectively consider your reaction if such an event occurred. You respond by taking offense at a hypothetical situation that was obviously not intended for an insult. I pity god.

    well, since no one else is debating my observation, I'll debate it myself... if we choose to be, and are successful at, being kind and peaceful, doesn't that open the door for the psychopaths to take over unopposed? Good question, Mike.

    This question is in the form of a psychological experiment which means the assumption that you must believe the evidence is critical. If I have to word it like this I will, "What would you do if you suddenly discovered there is no god?"

    Why would you assume the person asking the question was a non-believer? There is NOTHING to indicate that this person is a non-believer. He or she may be more devout than any one. To NOT question is disrespectful to creation and to our intellect.

    It's not a personal choice -.- the assumption for the hypothetical scenario is something that has to be followed or your answer is just gibberish. Just assume that you were suddenly faced with some weird epiphany that there was no god if that helps.

    You're not thinking of this the right way -.- I'm asking that in the scenario you somehow were faced with evidence that you Can No Refute (can't argue against) how would you react. You have to follow the assumption for the scenario.

    If you aren't meant to question or guess then why would God bother giving you a brain? I have a strange feeling god won't care if you think for about 3 seconds on this kind of question.
