    Can you prove "God" doesn't exist?

    What is "God", anyway?

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

      Is Science the only thing worth measuring in life?

        Atheism is just living your life *without* theism i.e. without a belief in god/gods. It does not imply opposition to anything, just the absence of it.
        You're right about the "a" - that comes from Sanskrit.

        However, Atheism has changed drastically from it's origins and most people don't practice traditional Atheism, the same way that Christianity has morphed throughout the ages (I consider Atheism a religion). You know that Christianity used to be Monist (as opposed to Monotheist)?

        The belief system of a religion comes down to the interpretations of those leading it.

          breathing contradiction(actively preaching and believing in nothing uh what?)

          The only logical thing you can do is to keep an open mind to all things and find the answers yourself. Unfortunately, in this lifetime, this isn't possible, if it ever will be.

          The bible itself is actually a very fascinating story, and many good morals can be taken from it if you're not looking at it through the eyes of someone brainwashed.
          Well said!

            [QUOTE=YogaBare;1142255]Can you prove "God" doesn't exist?

            Can you prove unicorns and fairies don't exist?
            The burden of proof lies upon the one making the claim of a magical creature's existence. Show me a book describing unicorns in detail and I'm going to question the sanity of the author. Show me the fossilized remains of a unicorn and I will change my mind and accept that they once existed.

                I'll repeat the second question: What is "God"?

                Is your definition of "God": a unicorn?

                  No. I don't believe in god. Doesn't matter to me if others believe in god but it does matter to me when others try to push religion rather than science, when public policy is dictated by people's religious text which is downright barbaric if you ever bother to read it...

                    You know there's a whole universe outside monotheism?

                    For some people the word "GOD" doesn't include it.

                      Um, no. Just because some individuals might be militant about it, doesn't change the meaning of the word.

                      I personally am an atheist. It is not a religion. I do not follow any "leaders". There is no atheist organization or movement. I just live my life with my way of thinking.

                      You are projecting something on to atheism that is just not there for most of the people who think this way.

                        Yes there is and I don't think any of their gods or deities exist either.

Today is Good Friday, and whether or not you choose to believe or accept it Jesus Christ willing went to the cross to pay the debt for our sins. I for one am thankful and appreciative.
