@JanBodh, how are you going to counter the believer's argument that God is infinite, therefore the fact that the universe is infinite only proves God's existence. Well, sure, it is a bit "circular," but believers are mostly ignorant of the logical fallicies. I think this is why that Anglican archbishop said he sometimes has doubts. I didn't quit believing entirely and was only an agnostic until I applied logic to the proposition "God exists." Rational people and freethinkers know that the proposition has no supporting evidence soever for "Yes" and an enormous trove of data proving "No," I needn't adumbrate further for readers of A|N.

Doesn't prove anything, but nice little turn of phrase.  ^.^

The truth about universe is infinity. If we find God, it means we have found the end. So if infinity is true, God is false

Dhruv Kumar Ghosh, you are 100% correct. This is one of the main reasons I am an atheist.

Sir what science has done in 1000 yrs religion couldn't do it in 10000 yrs because they don't broaden their minds they just give their explanation on the basis of their holy books and all those nonsense stuff. Do they have any experimental proof that there what so ever creator created universe just writing it down in their holy

book doesn't gives

Most kind of you Joan. And  I suspect that you write more often---and every time very well---on Atheist Nexus than any other member.

Terry, you have done a tremendous job of guiding and building this site and you can be very proud. Without a doubt, the topic is becoming foreground in the minds of many people. Your integrity and excellent example have served to build a powerful and credible reputation for the atheist community. 

I see the numbers of new members here and just am in awe of the increase of numbers each week. This is becoming a real place for transformation.

@ Rick Springfield, Hush child! An evangelical might be listening. Some have enough trouble with consensus reality, and here you go positing a hall of mirrors where a single candle lights each glass -- to infinity.
