Its because you're ignorant and arrogant that you cannot admit that you have no evidence of god.

Previously you said my comment had no intellectual merit, but that fact remains that:

1. You have no evidence of god.
2. You Creationist idiots reject science - the same science that lets you write your ignorant thoughts on computers today.

You get to speak / share your opinion about the universe only AFTER you've understood the science behind it and not before.

Anything else you say before that should be regarded as the babbling nonsense of an ignorant monkey who rejects education and embraces self-important hallucinations.

I can't disprove the possibility of some form of deity, hiding in the ever shrinking gaps, leaving no evidence. I don't care about the label "Atheist". I'm simply a non-believer.
However, I know for sure there is no all powerful compassionate god because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

If it's true that the universe is nothing but an holographic structure then all suffering is only an illusion. An ingenious artifice, ergo, created by an intelligent entity.

Maybe we are all only streaming info, entertainment for entities who experience time very differently than we do. Entities whose idea of true entertainment being that of "surprise" random behavior and not lame, predictable story-lines, like chickflicks that always end with the guy/girl ending up with the mate of their dreams. Boring. Sci-fi or horror do not always end with the good guys whupping the bad guys.The ultimate irony "would" BE of an hologram taking itself seriously.

Excuse us while we turn to the scientists of the world, instead of the creationist nut jobs like you.

Should I tell the Atheist on this board you a a left wing Liberal type, or do you mind being labeled a right wing Religious fundy?

But Science now speculates half the matter in the Universe is Dark matter, but no one knows what Dark matter is.
So could Dark Matter just be another name for God?
I believe in God but my Belief is not tied to one verse book or set of belifs made up by man
No one posits that Dark Matter created the universe, only that it is a component of the universe.

No one posits that Dark Matter is omniscient, or that it possesses any intelligence at all.

No one posits that Dark Matter is omnipotent, or that it possesses any particular properties at all.

Most conceptions of godhood include the idea that "god" is a creator, is omniscient and is omnipotent.(Benevolence seems to be an optional characteristic, one also not attributed to Dark Matter.)

So, while words are arbitrary symbols for the things they represent, and you can designate any word/sound to be the symbol for anything, there seems little similarity between the concept of "god" as most believers define him/her/it and dark matter, as most scientists hypothesize it.

If suffering is an illusion, go sit on a fire.

Don't want to sit on a fire?

Then you feel suffering is real enough. That suffering means there is no all powerful compassionate hologram projector or god.

The ultimate irony would be a hologram praying to the projector.

Doubt if suffering is an illusion.
People of faith and those who do not have faith can band together and limit suffering today

Atheism takes a definitive stand. Since there are no factual data to support it, it is a belief, a leap of faithlessness if you will.
Actually... the lack of ANY supporting evidence FOR the existence of ANY 'gods' is all the supporting data needed to not believe in the first place.

<quoted text>No, you don't have to prove there is no god. But if you can't, your atheism is suspect.
Let me get this straight... what you're saying is that if an unsupported claim is made, not accepting that claim because of the lack of support for it is somehow the same thing accepting that claim BECAUSE of the lack of support for it?

And you see that as LOGICAL??

Seriously???

But do you know if you sat in a fire your butt would not feel pain.
We would just think it hurt but in truth all pain is felt in the Brain. We just think the pain is in a different part of the body.

No matter where pain is virtualised, the fact there is avoidable suffering means there is no all powerful compassionate god.

You ask whether or not I believe in the hereafter. Since I take that as a serious question, I would first like to hear your views, and how you come by them.
