How old were you when you realized that god was a myth?
were you a kid or did it take you longer to realize that god is just something made up by humans?
Never thought it was real in the first place People used to worship cats, at least they are cool and funky
That occurred when I was a sophomore. It does to almost everyone, which is why it's viewed as a sophomoric position. Fortunately, I grew out of it as I gained experience.
I still have faith in God and strongly believe that there are certain things that can't be seen but still exists. Like air, it can't be seen still it is there around you
When I was born I have always thought this "Faith is absence of fact....Faith is willingly ignoring reality"
I still haven't. I find it too difficult to believe that this world and everything in it was created by a single mutated atom.
I realized that God was a myth when I was 17. I realized that God is real when I was 25. That continues to be my working hypothesis.
This is a very delicate matter. And it is probably better not to enter a debate on this topic. However, the correct answer in regard to the existence or non-existence of God is one. God is what Max Plank, the Nobel Laureate in Physics claimed to be: an "Intelligent and Conscious mind" or the "Matrix of all matter".
I am not talking about creation out of nothing. Soul is uncreated. But there is something else that could be created.
For a process of creation to be viable it needs to "accepted" by the immutable laws. Otherwise it would shortly disintegrate. So, the bottom line is that one needs first to know the Immutable laws and then look for a process of creation.
I was very young when I realized that. I actually believed in Santa Claus longer than I believed in God. Santa made more sense to me. I was never part of a religion such as Christianity though. I thought there was a God when I was extremely young, but I never had a religion.
That said, I also don't consider myself an "atheist". Theists, atheists, agnostics and deists are a bunch of fools who like argue endlessly about the existence or nonexistence of imaginary friends. Atheists are mostly ex-Christians who are angry at their imaginary sky-daddy who they still secretly believe in. They want to convince themselves that they're not religious anymore, that's why they feel the urge to label themselves in opposition to what they supposedly don't believe in.
people on here often ask why atheists comment on religious hubs but i see it's ok for religious people to comment on a question that has nothing to do with them. amazing. but of course from your point of view it's ok.
When i failed a math test by putting Jesus as the answer to every question. I got upset and said "i thought Jesus was the answer!" The Teacher said "This is a math test." "So are you saying that in terms of logic religion fails?" I was 8.

So after two years visiting this forum I think that both the fundamentalist evangelical Christian and the atheist agree on one thing. That is the existence of God cannot be proven. Therefore how can it be a logical argument that God would condemn someone for not believing the unprovable? Thus a god...

We hear often of atheists claiming that have looked for evidence of God but can find none but what would convince them? How do they go about investigating? How do they expect believers to prove it to them when it can only be proved to oneself and not by another?

What is the best way to explain the existence of God to an atheist?I've heard people try to convince atheists that there is a God by quoting the Bible or some other holy book. But quoting from such materials won't work. You have to believe in them before you can accept them as plausible...

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...
