what about a “maybe” option
you can’t prove god exists but you can’t prove they do exist either
you need evidence to prove something doesn’t exist just as you need evidence to prove something does exist

@Mbecks05, like @dan964, I am one of the Moderators here on BoS. We contribute our time freely to help students who are approaching / undertaking the HSC. Believe me that if dan stopped doing everything he does, a lot of students would be very disappointed. We allow more robust discussion outside of the subject-focused and school-related sections, but we still ask that everyone try to remain civil and to remember that there is a human being behind every user name. Judgemental comments about fellow users, including about Moderators, are generally unhelpful.

If you disagree with dan's views, feel free to say so. Feel free to discuss your views, engage in debate, but avoid saying things about others that you would not feel comfortable saying if you were face-to-face, or would not appreciate having said to you.

I am not religious but I presume people would go to this length and extent of debate and explaining their views about God because it gives them comfort or affirmation in what they believe and having a safe haven to express their opinion freely allows them to get a lot of stuff out their chests that they might not be able to chat with friends, family or other peers. That's the beauty of the anonymity online because you can say whatever you want (to an extent) and not feel judged or impacted by doing so as you would IRL.

I appreciate the long debates that occur in this thread because it shows that we as people are being able to communicate our perspectives and understand each other. Hopefully people who wish to participate in debates aren't discouraged from doing so.

Yes God exists. At least, the creator does.
There is this thing called grace that exists everywhere whether you’re receptive or not to experience it.

I lost my sense of grace the moment my faith wavered in the certainty of the universe, and went down the path of scientific explaining as the sole source of knowledge.

However, no matter what explainations you may have, you still technically KNOW nothing for certain.
Sure, you may know how things happen, but the more you dig, there will never be an answer for ‘why’.

There is so much intention however between every intricate design that exists in nature, so there ultimately is a ‘why’, a grand scheme if you will, even though we may never know it within our life times.

In order to feel grace btw, try the thought experiment, what would it feel like if God was a FACT!

Don’t go about this logically, for that’s only one aspect of intelligence, instead, sharpen your intuition, and experience what it’s like to have faith in things again.

Once you do, it’s obvious that there is more than meets the eye, and I guess we could call ‘that’ God?

actually i graduated from school, 7 years ago lol. im still at uni lol, studying a second degree.
Daniel especially you, I want to show you how you presuppose things subsequent to having to presuppose a preceding first mover or uncaused causer, identical to the theistic worldview, without any empirical evidence like you require of God such as axioms.

some motivation behind believing is that if u do ur rewarded and get to be in heaven and if U do bad U go 2 hell.

Like that's just called being a decent person.

Also religion causes so much fukn dramas. Countries blowing each other up and having a sook cos they r arguing over gods from centuries ago

Religion is a man made construct to control stupid ppl

God does not exist cos there is no god
This doesn't make sense because where's your evidence? You can't just say "there is no god"

Just curious, do you believe in evolution? It just doesn't make sense sorry, how life randomly started after the "big bang". How was the universe created from nothing?

The big bang theory states that "Our universe began with an explosion of space itself". Ok, then who created "the space" if "god doesn't exist"

Also what do you believe happens after death? Not hating I'm just curious

Where is ur evidence lol

and don't say some made up book from ages ago. Wouldn't the normal be like it's doesn't exist until U prove it does? I remb seeing on tiktok and interesting argument were U just grew up with it and that's why U believe in it. Like u don't grow up in middle east and be a Christian (usually) and likewise in the states U would usually be Catholic or Christian as opposed to Muslim.

yes I believe in evolution and other things science can prove. I don't think anything happens after death. U live on earth U die and we move on. I was raised Hindu and got told there was an afterlife and stuff and if U do good in this life U get a better next one. This just sounded like copium for poor people that were struggling.

i guess we can prove everything after the big bang but not stuff proceeding it.

if we could prove with math physics or science before the big bang, would U still believe in a god?
