God does not have any obligation to show you proof of his existence. Why would he PLANT evidence for you to toy with? Oh wait, he already did. It's called brown-eyed Susan. Keep you hands off that.

first you say he wouldn't then you say he did...

?!?

in reality, there is not proof of any gods because they are man made myths. the human attributes of all the gods are a dead give away they were mad up by humans. the proven lies about them are not possible with an all-knowing, perfect god.

face it, it just ain't meshing with reality.

if there ever comes credible evidence of any god or any effect from any god or belief in any god,then it will be looked at objectively. so far, all such claims have fallen way short of being evidence.

Do you have 'proof of evidence' that this god-character of yours even exists?
If so you would be the only one on the planet.
what kind of evidence do you need? Something you can examine in a lab? God does not have DNA, quit asking for evidence. Why would he be a science experiment? Yah right.

"God is a non-scientific concept." then you could not teach science in school."

And you can't in the US. Private schools are the exception.

Babylon wrote, "Pretty good idea for science to stay away from God, look at all the funding they would lose if they did include God!"

So far there's nothing to stay away from. However it's good for science to stay away from religious apologetics as that stifles scientific inquiry.

Babylon wrote, "So for now they will just have to play with his creations. "

As do we all.
"And you can't in the US. Private schools are the exception."

You can't teach science in school?

What? Am I reading this wrong?

"Babylon wrote, "Well if he was "God is a non-scientific concept." then you could not teach science in school."

Is this not saying if God was a scientific concept you then could not teach science in school?

Well that's what I get out of it.

<quoted text>Not quite accurate. Oxygen is formed inside of large stars where the 'carbon cycle' is used for fusion instead of the 'hydrogen cycle' found in the sun. The oxygen forms fairly late in the life of the star, but supernova are only required to get elements larger than iron (because of binding energy constraints).
Or God could just create it.
