MCT commented on Shane Jones's blog post Gnosticism/Agnosticism is not mutually exclusive from Theism/Atheism
"Need we prove a negative that is not possible? I don't know if there is someone at my front door right now, because I haven't proven there is not and it is logically plausible. But, I do know that Superman is not at my door right now…"

Heather Spoonheim commented on Shane Jones's blog post Is the question, "is there a god?" a valid inquiry?
"Very well stated position. I would add, though, that there is very compelling evidence as to the origins of the Abrahamic tradition being rooted in the mythology common to all Semetic peoples. The inclusion of the deluge and creation mythology found…"

Harry Meyer commented on Shane Jones's blog post Is the question, "is there a god?" a valid inquiry?
"Yep, they ask that question as if we know what a god is! Please define god beofe you ask if there is such a thing. Once it's defined it can be proven false or nonexistent.  "

Shane Jones commented on Shane Jones's blog post Gnosticism/Agnosticism is not mutually exclusive from Theism/Atheism
"I understand what you mean, but you cannot prove a negative so there is a possibility that there is in fact a god that our society does not know about. However, I am just like you, when it comes to the gods this world says they know about. *thumbs…"

MCT commented on Shane Jones's blog post Gnosticism/Agnosticism is not mutually exclusive from Theism/Atheism
"I am a gnostic atheist. And while I think your explicit definition of these concepts is mostly correct, I challenge you to explain how any concept of God is not one of the impossible to exist following: logical contradiction, an entity without…"

Jim DePaulo commented on Shane Jones's blog post The illogical compulsory religious defense and why it sucks.
"It often stems from the issue that they don't even understand that ignorance does not have a directly negative connotation. The only shame in ignorance is taking pride in it.  Ignorance can be remedied stupid can't."

Jim DePaulo commented on Shane Jones's blog post Growth numbers of non-religious in America
"If the 7% is a compounded rate then by 2022 there will be 30.4 % non-theists, by 2032 60.8% non-theist and it will be zero by 2042 - hope springs eternal."

"I read the entire list and did not at all get the joke as they all seemed entirely reasonable and not often enuf followed sufficiently to me. It wasn't until I reread the topics title that I got it. I can be quite slow on occasion."

Is the question, "is there a god?" a valid inquiry?

Posted on March 25, 2011 at 4:00pm 2 Comments

Is there a god?

Which one are you referring to?

Are you asking me to deny your god or a specific god, or are you asking me to deny all gods?



I'll need you to elaborate more in order for me to give you a proper answer.



Are the defined gods with all-powerful or intervening attributes impossible?



Yes they are impossible. #1 all-powerful is an impossibility you cannot be so powerful that you can't do something because of your all-powerfulness. The concept… Continue

Avoid the use of Never.

Quote sources and numbers.

If it is just an opinion, admit it.

Do not present opinion as… Continue

As a logical man I have always considered those who willfully choose religion but do not solicit it to be awarded a respectable status of religious faith.

And I know some people try to say that "Atheists have faith in science, and in logic, and refuting religion with scientific facts is sticking up for our own beliefs."…

From Wikipedia:

This category included atheists, agnostics, humanists, and others with no theistic religious beliefs or practices. Figures are up from 14.3 million in 1990 to 34.2 million in 2008, representing a proportionate… Continue
