You are welcome to try to refute me. You have not had much luck in attempting to do so in the past, but you might get lucky this time.

So you are employing the fine art of parody with your screen name? I will agree that there can be no proof for or against the existence of god. However, the empirical evidence suggests to me that there is no god, a person. I have heard that GOD is a code world for ALL THAT IS. Einstein puts it best from a secular point of view;
A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, of the manifestations of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty - it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute the truly religious attitude; in this sense, and in this alone, I am a deeply religious man.(Albert Einstein)
I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.(Albert Einstein, 1954)
I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with the fates and actions of human beings.(Albert Einstein)
You dont seem to understand.

How can you agree that "there can be no"?

How do you go about proving that "there can be no"?

God is more than a code word for "all that is"; HE/SHE/IT is held to be THE CAUSE/SOURCE/CREATOR of "all that is".

You know nothing about what you dont believe.

Madamn...
The existence of a thing is not based on its moral character, hence the absolute lack of morality of God is not sufficient to prove that He does not exist.
Morality and existence are two separate and necessarily unrelated ideas.
Furthermore, science cannot be build on a negative argument:
Hence the idea that "there is no [fill in the blank]", has no scientific validity; whether you are talking about atoms, God or an elephant in the bird bath.

As a Buddhist I do "not deny the nature of God, but rather the concept of God." (Sogyal Rinpoche)

So are you the concept of god or the nature of god? Naturally I think a name is a concept.

Even Christians hate Jehovah's "Witnesses".

They are as far removed from reasoning as the east is from the west.

They dont believe in praying for others when the Bible itself instructs men to pray for their brethren.

The Bible states that "the life of all flesh is the blood thereof" [Lev. 17:14], and that "Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends." [John 15:13]... YET a Jehovah's "Witnesses" will not donate a drop of blood to save his mother.

They are witnesses to something alight; but I doubt that thing is Jehovah.

Concepts of god are simply mind images and, at best, are only representative reality.

Can the nature of god exist in something so small as a single human brain?

As always, to validate your point you'll have to quote me, especially that "interpret" part. Why, you even stated, and I quote, "You said it yourself." So prove it, or you prove yourself ... altogether now class ... a liar. I keep using that word because I know exactly what it means and to whom it applies.

Interesting notion that seem unsupported by the facts.

You will have to prove it.

Jehovah Witness is simply a mind control cult. Their practices are similar to the Soviet Union in their consistent revision of their own history.

Now that we know you don't know and don't care, it's much easier to understand why you spout the dataless nonsense you do and don't appear interested in allowing data to correct your erroneous understanding.

How is 16.22 degrees off "approximate?" That's 4% inaccuracy. That's the difference between life and the death of thousands. 16.22 degrees off from the center of the target will only hit the target at 40 feet or less. It reminds me of an old saying, very relevant:
"Close" only counts in horshoes and hand grenades.
Have you considered the definition of approximate?

The answer is straightforward. Yours is a different statement using different words with different meaning. Put your statement next to mine and see if you can discern the differences. A dictionary may prove helpful in the exercise.

BTW, for the sake of greater precision the end of my statement should me modified to specify "anything which can conceivably be accomplished".

Nobody knows anything except they first believe it.

If you know a thing before you believe it; then you are either in doubt are you are living in denial.

You must accept (believe in, trust) the validity of a concept before you can say you know it.

On the subject of God, people do know something Mad-dam(sel).

We do know that that which is God is truly is God (i.e. He that is God is God in himself); and thats at least a start.
