Why would reality be subjective without a god?

Lets test that notion.

You see a purple duck. Right there in front of you in your hallway. Is is a subjective phenomenon or an objective one? No way to know for sure. Perhaps you will ask yourself if you are crazy.

So. You sit down and pray. "God is there a purple duck in front of me?". God answers your prayer with a "Yes!" ringing out in your head. Great!!!! So you are not crazy? Mmmmmm. You start to have some doubts. Was that really God, or more self delusion?

You call your mother, your best friend, and your neighbour and ask them to come over. That purple duck is right there in front of you!

When they arrive, you ask them if they see the purple duck in your hallway. Luckily for you, they all say "Yes! There it is! How amazing, we have never seen a purple duck before! The neighbour say "I heard some animals escaped from the genomic lab up the road!"

I would guess at that point and that point only, would you be a bit more confident that the purple duck was real. So where is the root of what we call objectivity?

objects floating in the air in a church.. was on the news..

which is one of the reasons why i still believe in god..

because I mean come on..

floating objects in mid air what more proof of God do you need..

on the other hand an object floated in the air at my house and hit me in the head and It didn't make me believe the house was haunted or anything..

me and my friends just ignored it and acted like nothing happened..

Yeah, you've obviously got the beginnings of it, but it's not "telekinesis".

That is rather dubious.

Alien life very well could be real. It is almost a certainty. Alien intelligence may be questionable. It took 4.5 Ga years for it to appear on Earth.

It is alien visitors that are not real.

Sub Z believes in alien life for the same reason religious people believe in God; faith. There is no scientific evidence of alien life.
