    For all the haters prove that there is no wind, or air and then we can talk about your foolish idea on God.  Just like wind (that we can not see), or the air we breathe, We feel God, We see God's work.  But you believe in wind that saves nothing, but!!!!

      Have you ever seen your brain? Can you reach out and touch your brain? Do you believe you have a brain? Then you must have a brain.

      Have you ever seen God? Can you reach out and touch God? Do you believe in God? Why not? You believe you have a brain.

      What's wrong with this argument?

          No you have not - you MAY have seen love and kindness - but you definately have not seen that it comes from any god - you can only attribute it to a god in your imagination. Nothing wrong in this, if you believe in a god then it is real for you I guess, but it does not make god real.

              Hi Jerami - this is the difference I guess, I benefit from the sun and I see it every day, so when it is dark I am not frightened because I know the earth is round and the sun will come around again, and again, and again.  Good stuff comes and goes, bad stuff comes and goes, all of it is human made with no god involved.

                How are you China man ??   
                You haven't seen the sun!
                We see the bright glow that the sun is surrounded by.
                We see the benefits that the light brings.
                We feel the effects of it on our skin.   

                   The difference between fact and conjecture is the number of people that believe it????

                   When everyone agrees it is a fact. 
                   Just because everyone thinks of something as a "fact" that does not necessarily make it true.

                    Seriously though..   Believing in something does bring a certain level of truth where without belief;  it didn't happen.

                      Talking about hypnosis...  If ya believe an onion is an apple, it tastes like an apple.

                       Or if a pencil is a lit cigarette..  it will raise a blister on ya when you see it touch ya.

                       Reality can be bent by the power of the mind.

      Using your scenario, there could be many gods which cannot be seen!  Correct?

      Beelzedadposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Why would you believe we can't see our atmosphere? That makes no sense. We know exactly what our atmosphere is comprised.

      The wind is nothing but the movement of that atmosphere.

      Where would you get those foolish ideas?  smile

    Everyone should realize that every word that comes out of our mouths either have a constructive or destructive consequence .

      We see this in our everyday lives.
      Because everyone with all kinds of different desires have this ability, this sometimes turns into a foamy mixture that ferments.

    I am curious what all of your definitions of "love" is? Scripture says "God is love" and "God is light". When you look closely, EVERYTHING, and i mean everything in this universe (and likely all the others) is made of light resonating at varying frequencies-its ALL light-period. So, what then is "light"? Again, look at it closely, (we do have technology that helps for those that have eyes to see and ears to hear)the smallest item in the universe is a quark-made half of a positive and half negative light particle forming a photon-you cannot cut it in half-just like trying to cut a magnet in half, you cannot get one half positive and one half negative-they are bound simultaneously.

    Silly kids! something you can "see" is merely a SMALL band of frequency that the optics of our eyes and brains (we hope is there) pick up-again, everything is light-even in the "dark", you cannot see with human eyes, but put on night vision goggles and you can see all kinds of things-light is everywhere and constant, what our eyes can and cannot see may be the limits of your brain thoughts?

    I am also curious where ALL of you developed your first impression of your beliefs-who taught them to you? was it fear or control based? likely. do some research-find out everything you can about religion, the bible, history, and also see if you can listen to your heart and inner voice? i am curious for sure! There is definitely a creative intelligence in our universe-when you look closely the micros and macros are using the same systems-designed for sure. For you Christians, start with Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. My concordance suggest to understand these verses is to KNOW the purpose/will of GOD. For you non-believers, keep following yoru heart!
