There is no point to such debates because it cannot be proven that there is a god as well as there isnt one. the masses just follow what they grew up on and was born into religion. But whether its true or not is a question that will be impossible to answer

I'd say He exist. You know, I once asked God for a wife, 5 months later, He gave me a wh**e!. I do have to admit, I did blaspheme God a couple of years on down before this but I stopped this. I figure this is why God laid this evil upon me. Since God did this evil deed to me and wouldn't give me what I asked for My Blasphemeing Him came back with a vengence!!!. I lay it on old God now, HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!. I blaspheme God real good now!. I do it more then ever and I don't care if I do go burn forever, HAHAHAHA!!!*******GIVE ME ANOTHER WH**E GOD!!!!!!!***

Exactly. Religion is the last bastion of superstition. Witchcraft and Voodoo have been largely overcome. And as for disproving god(s), I think reasonable people accept that there is no interventionist god to hear their prayers and that all Abrahamic god(s) are man-made, as are these...

So I think pixies and bigfoot aren't disproved any more than the god(s) of history and modern religions. That's not the point. The point is that there is no convincing proof that god(s), pixies or bigfoot exist or existed.
