If anyone here is down with maths, this LONG list of deities + long list of human beings who thought they were god demonstrates an interesting hypothesis.
As the number of conceived Gods increases with time, the difference in belief between atheists and theists tends to zero - here is my proof:
1. Most theists believe in one god and lack belief in ALL the others.
2. Atheists lack belief in ALL gods.
Let the total number of Gods conceived = n
& Let the total number of Gods believed in = b
For Theists b = 1
For Atheist b = 0
Lets define the number of gods atheists don't believe in G(A)
G(A)= n - b
G(A)= n - 0 = n
And the number of gods theists don't believe in G(T)
G(T)= n - b
G(T)= n - 1
Define the Difference of Belief factor D(B) as the ratio of lack belief between atheists and theists
D(B)= G(A)/G(T)
So we have:
D(B)= n /(n-1)
As n tends to a large number, D(B) tends to Zero.
For n -> large, D(B)= 0
So really, as theists continue to invent gods and religions to believe in, they are making sure that the total number NOT believed in continues to increase and increase, thereby heading straight towards Atheism!
When we hit large numbers of n, theists will disbelieve 99.9% of gods, while atheists will continue disbelieve 100%!
Math fun!

Checked out the site, so where is the scientific stuff. Only examples of near death experiences. No scientific data at all. Yall are grasping at straws. Find some real, actual doable, repeatable science and then get back to us.
The 'professsor' wouldn't know a scientific fact if it bit him in the behind.

Bump.

It's time to revisit the endless list of Gods that humans have believed in, in the past.

Of course the list of 'gods' is increasing.
Atheists add their own names and aliases everyday

Indeed-- we must continue to add the names of the new gods you idiots keep inventing.

And be it an alias or the word "god" it's still as fictional as ever.

Silly godbot.

Until (and if) you provide some ... FACTS to show your gods are real?

Athiesm remains (as always) as true as it ever was.

But atheists do believe what is written in the Bible because you all think you are gods.

Strawman. Look it up. Or continue to remain ignorant.

Ignorance does appear to be a virtue in your hatecult.

Is that the one where a bunch of monks are typing all the letter combinations in order to find the true name of god and when they do, the world starts winking out of existence?

If we were gods we would have our own books. Why would we need a book in which it's god was whooped by the iron chariot? Copycatting gods is not what we would choose to be, and I can't imagine giving a damn what you do with your dangly bits. So if we atheist were gods we would be more like the real gods, "Thor, Zeus, Poseidon, Athena", not some squirrelly panty sniffing-weasel like Jehovah.

What does that have to do with you not believing your Bible? If atheists thought that, they would be believing what your Bible tells YOU to believe and don't. You don't get that, do you?

It's so funny when these Christians who make I painfully obvious they are Christians don't want to defend the insanity of their cult and gurgle that they aren't Christians. It's like they wish to use every apologetic argument and brag about how many Christians there are, but as soon as the heat goes up on Christianity they chickensht out and Puke out that they aren't Christians after all!

Lmfao!
