If you had definitive proof that god couldn't possibly exist would you tell everyone?
The evidence is irrefutable and only you know now what do you do ?
I'd have to let it go and not tell anybody.
i wouldn't to much chaos would ensue. sometimes the bliss of ignorance is the only to deal with things
Too many consequences with news like that and then you run the risk of sounding like a nut job if you do tell anyone and end up in an insane asylum or something.
i suppose i would but would you listen if someone could reson with you that he did/
It could never be "proved" because of the word: faith. Also, people are going to believe whatever they want...and the universe is HUGE
I don't have a problem telling the truth if it is the truth but the truth of the matter is, is that anything is possible.
Yes. It would be wrong to hide the truth although some people will still believe no matter what.
That won't happen!
There is, neither definitive proof now, or in the future of His non-existence.
The problem is using a certain definition of the word "exist". If we are to refer to existence in terms of physical, material things, then you could argue that He does not exist.
The problem with that is, how do we explain the "existence" of something spiritual? Does IT exist. Some say yes, some say no.
God IS Spirit.
He manifests Himself, reveals Himself in (often) intangible ways. He is subjective, and He is relational. Not material, physical, tangible.
I do feel that it is hard to proof in this case even though you may be very sure of it.
Personally, I had experience the beyond scientific explanation of certain incidents that shown the existence of supernatural things. But if you do not have similar experience, you will not have the same feeling.
So even if you do feel that you have definitive proof of non-existence but it may not be for another person. It is like my kids asked me about the chick and egg - which comes first?
Up till now, I do not have the answer for them.
If YOU had definitive proof that God did exist, would YOU tell everyone? That's what believers are doing here (and everywhere) on hub pages. How much proof would you need? The Heavens declare His glory. All of creation displays His workmanship. The existence of the Creator God can't be denied.
why waste my time. if a person can't by now realise that god is just a myth , then proving it would not do anything except make them afraid of death, make them realise that the wrongs they do are their fault and not some satan thing etc.
I would let God break the news. C'mon, God, don't be shy... tell everyone the truth.
(God enters with head down, hands in pockets, nonchalantly kicking at a stray stone on the ground)
"OK, Ok, you got me... I don't exist after all... but, hey, we had some awesome Pope jokes, didn't we?"
The term "god" is defined as an unfalsifiable hypothesis, to which there is no scientific method of proving the theory or not. But given that the outrageous claims are so unrealistic, portraying a metaphysical realm to which there was no evidence for in the first place is not logical and the burden of proof is on those who hypothesized such banter.
I suggest looking up the Celestial Teapot, the Invisible Pink Unicorn and the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
They're all just classic.
No, I wouldn't. I would tell him to quit being an a**hole and ask him why he continues to make innocent people suffer everyday: Tsunamis, AIDS babies in Africa, Hurricanes, murder, etc etc... Remember what happened the last time someone had irrefutable evidence. They beat the shit out of him and hung him on a cross. Thanks a load, God!
Yes definitely so that believers in a God live to appreciate life and nature as we see it rather than say, 'In the Bible, God said....' and 'look at chapter/verse .... in the Bible where God bid his people to not....' and 'Live by God's Commandments'.
This would help us to see the earth as a natural foundation where we need to find solutions to real questions and problems without us quoting the words of a Higher Being in nearly every conversation we have with others and particularly by those who knock on our doors to tell us the Good News.

How can you be an atheist if you can't disprove the existence of God?What validity is there to the double negative argument for the existence of God? Is it really rational to justify belief in something by the mere fact that it cannot be disproved? You also can not disprove the existence of...

Atheist say that they can't prove that God do not exist,so.......that make them just as ignorant about the matter as those that they say can't prove that He does.That is a clear view of the Pot calling the kettle black.Do you agree.There is more proof that He does exist than He doesn't.They don't...

Many believers like to say that Atheists should prove that there is no God. Believers should know that existence has to be proved, not the non-existence. If a thing exists, it is possible to prove its existence. So believers should prove the existence of God if he exists. But if they want to do it,...

I refuse to prove that I exist, says God, for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway isn't it? It proves you exist, and so therefore, you don't," "Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and...

What are the most common and logically acceptable arguments atheists use against God's existence?I'm doing a research and require some tough-atheists's arguments that they use against God's existence, all arguments need to be objective, logically acceptable and valid. thanks
