    What would make you believe that God didn't exist?

    A roommate once asked this of me. I'd be curious to hear your thoughts. If you're atheist, I'd like to hear what would convince you that God exists.

    I am neither an atheist nor a Christian...my own upbringing included more Native American beliefs than anything, and I don't identify with any given religion or anti-religion. Frankly, I don't know if God exists or not...and neither does anyone else. That said, nothing could definitively make me believe that God doesn't exist, the same way that nothing could convince me that ghosts or the Nimerigar don't exist, because the absence of evidence does not prove non-existence. For example, if I thoroughly explore the part of the world that I know and have access to, I won't find a shred of evidence that shows giant squids exist...does this mean they don't exist? If there's a way to prove a negative, we have yet to find it. On the same token, I don't know that anything could convince me that God DOES exist, because if someone showed up claiming to be God I'd likely not believe them.

    Nothing would convince me.  I can be convinced of a creator, I can be convinced that something has powers that I cannot understand, but I would never believe it was not a product of natural laws.

    Nothing can make me believe that God doesn't exist because I have a conscience in a body which is life. No man has given me life. My dad only followed protocol predetermined by a Creator. Nothing can produce something; it takes something to produce something; therefore, I believe in a Creator. We call that Creator God. This entire existence follows orders from God who predetermined All. The beautiful thing is that it sustains my life.

    In one word, NOTHING! Wha t is wrong with you? why do you find it so difficult to believe in a creator and that he is called God? do you think you were created from nothingness?

    Dave Mathews,

    Haha. Nothing is wrong with me. I do believe in God. This question is meant to get you thinking outside of your comfort zone. I even asked the atheists what would convince them that God does exist.

    Read some of my hubs, friend. Maybe you'll find that we don't think so dissimilar as you may have first believed.

    It depends on your interpretation of God. I don't believe in a Christian god by any means for the simple fact that there are so many religions, and there is a long history of war and carnage in the name of God.

    Come to think of it, I saw this written on the wall in my school library, and decided to write it down in my notebook. I shall repeat it here:

    "When you understand why you dismiss all other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
