I wanted to put this question out there to see how strongly everyone feels on this subject. Being that most of us trust in scientific fact and reasoning, I was wondering if everyone is absolutely, undeniably, 100% sure that a god doesn't exist.  I personally take into account that there is no proof of any cosmic creator so therefore I am about 99.9999% sure that there is no god. However we all agree that science is an ever evolving field and I don't think that there will ever be any proof to support the existence of a supreme being, but I can't be 100% sure until there is concrete proof against one. I would like to know what all of your thoughts on this.

The 'potential' of nothing is still nothing.

"Perhaps the potential of nothing is everything"

Time being the "big hill" to climb here. 

"According to quantum mechanics, anything that is possible is mandatory"

The problem with 'nothing' is that even though it seems a perfectly valid concept it is impossible for a mere human to envision (much less describe) just what 'nothing' is. No matter how hard we try we cannot even imagine 'nothing'. It is much like infinity; while we may be able to contemplate it, understanding it seems improbable. Especially when discussing time as we intuitively assume a 'beginning'; if infinity extends in both directions of our 'arrow' then beginnings and ends have ceased having meaning. 

Potential automatically assumes that there is something there on which it can act.

Me, I find existential solace with the concept of infinite universes and dimensions. This makes everything not only possible but inevitable. Perhaps we continually pop in and out of existence here in this dimension only it happens so fast that we can not measure it.

Now all I got to do is prove it. Here's is how I see the problem:

(+/-)T(time) multiplied by the square root of infinity= NOW (No Other When)

Of course I am 'probably' wrong, but I avoid occupying two places at the same time this way. Then again, 'potentially', I may be right.

Go figure.

Is "potential" the same thing as "probability"?

Lol...yeah. Seeing is believing but first, lets see some lightning bolts and flying or whatever people think god does (besides nothing) nowadays. And even then I'd want nothing to do with him and his religion. I mean, seriously, who wants to spend eternity with an omnipotent voyeuristic sadist, Jerry Faldwell, and Pat Robinson anyway? Now, that's my idea of hell!

99.9% - Anytime in history when there has been an unknown - a god has been the default explanation.  Fortunately, we have science to battle against sky gods and eventually it will answer humanities toughest questions.
