I'm somewhere over a 6, but have yet to see a satisfactory definition of the concept of God to say for sure.

Would a 'high school' student in the metaverse making the universe as a school project count as a God? This is, I suppose, a *possibility*, even though I don't see it as likely. But it is *far* more likely than the Biblical or Quranic deity.

6.9 (too).
Depends on what one means by god(s). Pixies, Greek god(s) and Abrahamic god(s) all seem equally unsubstantiated by reason and evidence.

I, too, would place myself at abut 6.8 or 6.9. I do hope everyone who posts in the atheist forum will vote (but only once, please, not once per screen-name if you use more than one). I really am curious abut the overall composition of our little group.
