Much like scientific assumptions, eh? They are real not because they are, but because science says they are.

True reality, or science's reality? The answers you seek are not "out there" or apart from your natural mystical self. They are as close to you as your impulses, premonitions and intuitions are -for your identity lies within your inner reality from which all events in your life emerge. Your natural self knows this - going along with your true nature brings value fulfillment and fortunate events into your physical experience - for your intents, abilities and needs work naturally together. When you believe in impediments - your belief creates them. This is also the result of the nature of our creative awareized consciousness.

God is real because God exists.

Romans 1:20
"For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made."

Job 12:7
“But observe the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, and they will tell you. Who among all these does not know that the hand of God has done this? Does not the ear test words as the palate tastes food?"

Oh, really? So gravity only exists because science says it exists? The earth is only round because science says it is round?

No, gravity exists because it has been proven to exist. If you don't believe me, then go jump off a tall building.

The earth is not round because science says so. It is round because it has been proven to be round. There is an invention called photography. And this invention was used in outer space to take picutres of the earth, thereby proving the earth is not flat.

Please don't try to argue that your superstition is just as valid and trustworthy as science. That is absurd.

Actually, what scientists say is real is most often real, and that's because they exhibit the same traits and results for everything. Your god can't even show up the same way to everyone, so your god isn't real.

The earth is round because we can see the reflection of its shape on the moon during a lunar eclispe. This is as true today as it was when Ferdinand Magellan first took notice. And gravity? Well - its currently undergoing scientific reconstruction as do all of science's "theories" eventually. Why should anyone accept science's theories as truthworthy when they change all the time?

Actually, that would just make people think it's circular. Even then, a square object casting a shadow on a spherical object produces a shadow that is almost circular as well. We know it's round because of a primitive version of the scientific method utilized.

Because the theory is being refined doesn't make gravity go away either, does it?

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost three years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Three years without an example of evidence that meets their criteria for evidence. These are angry agenda driven folks that don't give a damn about the evidence.
If you want to subject yourself to this farce by all means see for yourself. Antitheists you could also just cut and paste one of the 64,070 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True science that is repeatable and observable.

Obfuscation will get you nowhere. Erik Verlinde, professor of Theoretical Physics says gravity is an illusion:

So, you have another mentally disturbed "professor," good for you. Doesn't change the fact that what goes up, must collide with another object.

How strange. You label everybody, including scientists who disagree with you as mentally disturbed. Has it ever occurred to you that you might be the one who is unhinged?

Then why don't you jump off the top of a very tall building, thus proving that Professor Verlinde is correct?

I agree completely. God never has, does not now, and never will, exist.

No they are real because observational evidence and multiple experiments prove it.

Nope, never occurred to me in recent years as I have nothing to feel insecure about.

99% of the population is mentally disturbed in some way, though it's often a simple delusion that some imaginary thing talks to them and tells them how to live.

Velinde is not saying you can't fall down, he's saying that science is looking at gravity the wrong way. Read the article.
