Something like that. The claim isn't that no gods exist or could exist. It is that despite your claims, no evidence has ever been provided for any of the thousands of gods imagined by man. Evidence means empirical, testable evidence, not your anecdotal stories.<quoted text>
You mean like, if you can't show me proof of God, then He's not real.
That is barely the beginning of science. Observations lead to hypotheses (educated guesses). Predictions are made and tested. If the results support the hypothesis, the data is published in peer reviewed journals where other scientists try as hard as possible to falsify your data. Only after rigorous and repeated testing is a hypothesis accepted as valid; with enough data and tests over time a theory is formed.<
Science makes educated geusses after looking at all the facts and data they have.
No, you stop at the guess or belief. There is no empirical evidence to share with others, there are no controlled tests in the lab, there is no data to support your claim.<.
I do the same thing...
I know you believe that. And I cannot disprove there isn't one. I can't prove leprechauns don't exist. I can't prove the universe wasn't created last Thursday by the FSM who implanted false memories in all our brains to make it seem older. Nor do I question whether you had a transformative experience. I've had them. Billions of others have. Only some attribute them to your god. Many others have other gods they attribute them to. I attribute those experiences to the normal workings of the human brain, which, by the way, is the only conclusion that can be tested in the lab. And it has been tested in the lab. We know the brain is capable of deluding itself; so I don't doubt you are serious, I just know you cannot possibly KNOW there is a god in any sense of the work 'know' having value.<.after seeing e
What I was before the night I.met God, and after -I truly believe there is a God :)
