    What facts show God does not nor cannot exist?

    Excellent question.  After much thought, I cannot come up with any facts that disprove the existence of God.  How could God not exist?  We are here.

    1. If an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent god exists,   then evil does not.

    2. There is evil in the world.

    3. Therefore, an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent God does not exist.

      What is your evidence for 1.?

      The evidence for number 1  is the fact that the premise and conclusion are not in contradiction. If 1+2 =3, then omnibenevolent=NO EVIL.  Do you have an explanation to prove that 1+ 2 does not equal 3?

      In order for 1. to be true you need to prove there is no good reason God might have for temporarily permitting suffering in the world.

      Are you just flat out ignoring the definition of the prefix *Omni*
      Omni means ALL. As in infinite. The fact is that you need to prove how your god can be omniscient omnipotent and omnibenevolent, yet somehow contradict his own nature. Doesn't add up.

      If God has a GOOD, legitimate reason for temporarily permitting suffering there is no contradiction in his nature.

    The human imagination. We've created so many gods and goddesses that they've begun to lose their credibility. You or I could make up a new deity, write a book about it and self publish it on the internet. That new god would then have the same level of believability as every other god in human history. The only difference is how old they are and how popular they became.

      How does this prove God does not nor cannot exist?

      Because we (humans) are the narrators of history and mythology. The concept of god has only ever been presented by us and it's unverifiable with impartial sources. If we say the unverifiable exists, then everything we imagine also exists.

      Does this mean, then, that all history is merely mythology?

      History is often mythologized, but parts can still be verified. Usually, if multiple different people wrote about the same event, we can cross reference them to make a clearer picture. But, even then, history is still a human narrative.

    There are no facts to show god (I am assuming it is one of the popular ones) does not exist.

    you are asking for evidence to a negative which cannot be given in a scientific setting. I could ask you for imperical evidence that Odin does not exist, and you will not be able to provide it. Does that mean that Odin exists? The problem for you is that you are the one making the positive statement, so it is you that has to prove something like a supernatural being exists. Of curse you cannot prove it because god does not exist anywhere that can be measured

      Evidence Santa Claus cannot exist in reality - http://bit.ly/185Tf1D

      Now try to apply the same approach to  God Almighty.

    I suppose that as a race we are limited in our knowledge and understanding - whatever evidence we have so far is not conclusive and all you can do is weigh it up and make a leap of faith.
