View Full Version : Is god a delusion?

i am going to use rational arguments and logical reason to prove that the existence of any god or gods is a false claim.

Yes, I require irrefutable evidence to believe in something. If I told you that leprechauns existed, you would call me a liar and I would absolutely deserve it, and your lack of belief in leprechauns would be completely rational. The same is true for the claim of God's existence. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Extraordinary claims do not become ordinary simply by their repetition by the religious.

If I am to believe in anything extraordinary, I will require extraordinary evidence. Faith is not noble or something to be prized. Believing in something for which no evidence exists is a dangerous condition. Like if I were to believe that I was impervious to fire, I would then light myself on fire and die. Why then would I die if I believed I was fire-resistant? Because my beliefs did not have accurate foundations in reality. Belief alone has absolutely nothing to do with reality.

People are very blind when it comes to GOD! They only want to accept and believe whatever fits their understanding. One can know something and yet not believe it!

Extraordinary evidence of God is everywhere but when people have an understanding problem they tend to flaw what they do not grasp.

Faith is not noble or something to be prized.

That is your opinion! We all live our lives by faith and yet still we have a problem with faith. It takes faith and believes for a person to pursue his or her degree. It takes faith for anyone to enter a long-term relationship, it takes faith to cross the streets, it takes faith to fly in a plane across the oceans where two men are in control of you getting to your destination safely, and the list goes on. Everything is a risk, but with faith we proceed and hope for the best.

The Christian faith is not about venturing blindly, it is the fact that we know (have information or understand) and choose to believe.
(accept).

Reality is God Himself. Anyone who choose not to accept (believe) that is the one with the delusion problem.

Absolute garbage. Faith is an illogical belief in the happening of the improbable- Sigmund Freud

I would rather not say that God is not real, because not real is a positive assertion of fact and has a burden of proof. Rather I would say God is an unfalsifiable hypothesis and cannot be proven not to exist. Much like if I say I can fly when no one is looking or that I own an invisible hamster that can't be measured or sensed in any way, you can't disprove any of it. But just like God, there is insufficient evidence to claim the existence of God. I cannot conclude God is not real because you cannot disprove (or prove) something that cannot be falsified. I can however lack a belief in God because I see no more evidence for God than I do for Zeus, Allah or my invisible hamster.

Lady √ Macbeth
29th April 2011, 07:38 AM
Now what you are saying is rubbish! Complete hogwash because though you went on to clearly state God's existence cannot be disprove yet you said
there is insufficient evidence to claim the existence of God. That begs the question: what are some of the insufficient evidence to claim the existence of God do you have? It goes right back to a paradoxical statement.

Unfalsifiable (let me remind you the definition): not able to be proven false, but not necessarily true.

Unfalsifiable hypothesis (let me remind or inform you): not capable of being proved false <unfalsifiable hypotheses>

Those two definitions are simply asking for: verification. It is not stating that God's inexistence or existence can or cannot be proven. It is either black or white--not in between. Hypothesis is just an assumption or idea! Unfalsifiable is for persons who are confused and are reluctant to the obvious truth (i.e. there is a God)!

Quite frankly, there cannot be a harmonization of the only application being both true and false. If a thing is true, then it cannot be false. Equally, if something is false, then it certainly cannot be true. The "unfalsifiable” is out of the picture! It is either true or not. You cannot be dismissive in the regard of God's existence due to the fact that Science is incapable of granting you an answer. People tend to rest in the so-called unburden of not having to cogitate or ever knowing the real truth of what they cannot grasp (i.e. defeatists).

That begs the question: what are some of the insufficient evidence to claim the existence of God do you have?.

Senseless question but i will use a layman's intellect to put the kibosh on your wry logic.

There is no evidence that god exists. Seeing is believing. If he exists then why doesn't he come down to earth and show himself to us. If he exists then why does he allow millions of innocents to be killed. If he exists and has all these majestic superpowers, then why doesn't he do something about wars. Instead, he, if he exists at all, just sits around and treats the whole thing as an over elaborate joke. If he exists then why doesn't he do something about poverty and suffering. If he exists then he would care and something would be done. Nothing has been done. Therefore not only does he not exist but is also a mass murderer and an implacable nazi sadist. god does not exist. End of story.


All those two definitions are asking for is: verification. It is not stating that God's inexistence or existence can or cannot be proven. It is either black or white--not in between. Hypothesis is just an assumption or idea! Unfalsifiable is for persons who are confused and are reluctant to the obvious truth (i.e. there is a God)!

You type a lot but don't really make much sense.

If a divine being can be defined, you can examine its definition for consistency. If it's inconsistent/contradictory you can discount it. If it can not be defined then it can not be known and is thus useless. If it has a consistent definition and that definition states it as supernatural, then it is by definition non-empirical and can not be verified by observation.


Quite frankly, there cannot be a harmonization of the only application being both true and false. If a thing is true, then it cannot be false. Equally, if something is false, then it certainly cannot true. The "unfalsifiable” is out of the picture! It is either true or not. You cannot be dismissive in the regard of God's existence due to the fact that Science is incapable of granting you an answer. People tend to rest in the so-called unburden of not having to cogitate or ever knowing the real truth of what they cannot grasp (i.e. defeatists).

I do not know what kinda drugs you are on. Let me debunk your a priori reasoning using a more polished and refined intellect.

If all humans suddenly ceased to exist my bicycle would still exist, a house would still exist, light would still exist, animals would still exist. All these things could be sensed by another animal. BECAUSE THOSE THINGS EXIST WITH OR WITHOUT HUMANS! An animal could not sense god because he doesn't exist. See how silly your harmonisation theory sounds?

"Chewing books and pouring them on forums doesn't make one smart" Your thinking is seriously flawed and almost pass off as a two year old throwing tantrums. Please present your thoughts as an adult and stop bombarding us with plethora of unnecessary texts subterfuge. Keep your argument simple, short and smart. We are not writing a textbook. Just the facts please!

Just if we could tone down the language to a more friendly style. We certainly will disagree but can still have our debates done in a better manner without having to tongue-lash each other.

But then,
There is no evidence that god exists. Seeing is believing. If he exists then why doesn't he come down to earth and show himself to us. Consistence demands that Intellectual cannot believe anything which is invisible to the eye. A follow-up question may be whether or not Intellectual belies in energy, intellect, air, knowledge, etc since all these do not wear tangible material expressions? Do you believe in air exists, Pirate? But you've never seen it!
Fact that you don't see something or never seen something cannot mean they do not exist. We never saw air before, but air exists. We see the effects of the air everyday. In the same way, though you have not seen God, He exist. What you should ask for is evidence to that effect which abounds and available to anyone who is interested to find. Man is not made of only six human sense, eye, ear, touch, kenestetic, taste. These are just the physical windows. Nor is man just about the intellect, will and emotions. These are just the windows of the soul. Man, apart from the body and the soul, is also a Spirit. When you engage your Spirit (with your soul and body) to a humble search for truth about the existence of God, you will encounter abundant Spiritual experiences with the Supreme One. It is good to engage our soul and body. I have experienced God myself. He is with me in my happy moments. He answers when I call and delivers me from predicaments. Most times, He does not allow me at all to even call, but as soon as the need registers in my consciousness He meets it. In other words, He consults the content of my heart and the intents of my mind to kick. I have experienced the wonders of God in my Education, Finances, Relationship and every part of my life. And God knows these things I say are true and not mischievous at all. God is ready to give everyone that will seeks Him a personal experience.

If Intellectual does not belief in the existence of God, then can he share with us his explanations about the origin of the universe and of man? We are interested to know your understanding about the origin on man and the universe. I'll be ready to submit some evidence apart from my personal experiences with Him if you so desire.

IP .... words are only signpost ...... never the real thing ..... now wat the word god points to in general in today's society is a masculine spirit ..... there is a seed of separatism in the sense that 1 can really stand in front of god - two masses facing each other... one god, the other the person ...... now god has these qualities of omniscient, omnipresent and all knowing but there has been a seed of separatism in how the mind perceives its relationship with its definition of god....

goddesses rule mythology until the overthrown of the matriarchy by patriarchy hence god being a masculine .....

my definition and understanding of the word god has changed.....

god is the sum of all ...... interplanetary mind/intelligence, sum of all the energies ...... the sum of all the unseen, seen and in between(connects seen and unseen) ..... nothing exist outside god .....
the actuality of god is not really bordered by wat the mind thinks or does not think about god ......

a simple example that helped my mind in understanding this is ....
draw a circle and put existence in that circle .... seen, unseen and in between ... thus .... physical universe with bodies, sand water, spiritual world, metaphysical etc are all in the circle ..... the circle is god ..... nothing exist outside of it ...... that means beliefs, duality, devil, good, bad, imagination, thought, christian, muslim, everything is in the circle ......

with this path of understanding i came to realize that everything is valid and its existence in wateva dimension is its proof of validity ..... so then it comes down to how u want to lead ur life ... wat is functional to the life ur choose to lead ..... what colours and brushes do u chooses to paint ur life with and u worry less and less about wat others think or choose in the sense that you cannot believe why others do not choose ur path or that your path is the only true way ...... that is spiritual arrogance IMHO .....

your own physical body can also be used as a good example .... your body is made up of trillions of cells .... no physical part of your body exist or is separated from ur body as a whole .... for example your nose is not in the basement of ur house while your body as a whole is in the bedroom on the second floor ..... there are heart cells, brain cells, liver cells etc ..... all different versions of the same stuff ........ now it will be strange for heart cells to think of the body as a mass outside of themselves in a way that the heart cells can stand before the body because the heart cells are a part of the body, the heart cell combined with other cells make the body ... all the cells, the sum of all the cells make the body .....

this is the definition and understanding of god im working with at the moment .... others are working with their own valid definitions and understanding.

Just the facts please!


It takes one who types a “plethora” to know that I type a lot and do not make much sense. If my thinking is so flawed and can be passed for a two year old throwing tantrums then yours must be compared to an elephant with a pen who wouldn’t be able to accurately analyze me even if to safe his own life. You ought to know where you throw your bones before you step on them yourself.

Your outburst is not sudden but rather quite deep-rooted. It is clear that you have been following and scrutinizing my post to the point that this opportunity bounced you the chance to approach me in a malicious modus.

Yet you go on the defense. In spite of your demeanor to downplay me, I am not moved by your falseness. Why you are trying to make me look bad so you can look good is self-explanatory (I am not suffering from inferiority complex). Though I thought this is a thread for one to share his or her opinion, sentiment, perspective, idea, and thoughts, however respectfully: your intention mirrors the opposite.

“I read books—and ‘chew’ eatables!” If you have a problem with me sharing my beliefs, point-of-view, and thoughts simply say so. Do not go around in tangents pointing your finger at me when far more are pointed back at you. My thinking of the Word of God is flawed because you have a problem understanding what is simple. I am on the type of drug that is out of your league so please don’t bother asking.

You said there is no evidence that God exist—are you kidding me? There is no what? See why I said that I am appalled by the blindness of people, especially those who are intelligent in their own inadequate minds (I know far too well that you don’t see but for the merriment of indulging you are worth the asking)? Socialism does not have power over me, I am not self-reliant or self-exalted, but completely reliant on the ultimate sovereignty of all that is seen and unseen. I know the truth (not religious acclamations) and the appropriation of what is. Like I said—there are people who “know” but do not “believe”! I know nothing, but thank God for the Holy Spirit, the blood of Jesus, and the infallible word of God.

Some believe in order for God to eradicate evil He would have to eliminate “free will” because when a human being is with that ability to choose then their desire (be it conscious or unconscious) to do evil is inevitable. However, I admit the obvious fact undeniably that people regardless of age, race, geography, religion or the lack thereof, social class, and the like: suffer. I know that suffering abound doubtlessly. But that is because of SIN and absolutely nothing else. The universe is a cause and effect world where the decisions that mankind make are causing them to suffer (generation to generation). Consequentially, some of the repercussions are inescapable. It was not God who started terrorism, Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow slavery laws, and so many irrational acts of men. People are always so quick to believe the negative appose to the positive. Those who are pronouncing judgment on God and the truth about Him should vividly consider the common facts of life.

I will say this: our mind/brain was created by God therefore it is extremely presumptuous for anyone who presumed they are an intellectual in their own eyes to question His way, and imprudent to doubt His existence.

I will go on record to say that character is greater than comfort, and I said that to the skeptics who concluded that God does not existence because of the suffering He allows in this world. That is just shallow thinking and it tells a lot about persons who think like that. God takes our pain and suffering to accomplish a greater good for our own benefit. On the flip side: we as believers do not say that God exist because of the pain and suffering in this world—for God’s existence does not base on conditions. You might come with the obvious argument regarding my last sentence, but let me just spare you the thought and inform you that love must have the unflawed balance of justice and mercy. A parent is a perfect illustration of this which I do not wish to read out to you. However, just as a parent allow his or her child to suffer the pain of multiple injections, surgeries (once there are life threatening health issues), circumcision, disciplining unacceptable behaviors, and the like—so does a loving God does for a greater good through suffering and pain (all of which we brought upon ourselves though He has the power to prevent it—it will only defeat the purpose of us developing genuine characters).

P.S. The skeptics have such uncomely fallacy about love and the nature of God that they are finding the suffering in this world as one of the many reasons they think a loving God does not existence under these conditions. You continue in your serpentine where the truth is concern.

i be beginner on this path so make i no talk too much

but you don't get into this tag of war of words about the word 'God', thats what Im saying. If you've read Eckhart's "Power of Now" before (till this date that book stands out as probably the best thing I've read), Eckhart's writes, "Honey", you can study honey, read about honey, talk about honey, teaching about honey for years or all your life, but you will never know what honey really is until you taste it. After tasting honey, you will know honey and the word 'honey' will become useless to you. The word won't have any significance any longer.

I'm probably the most misunderstood person in my whole family when it comes to spiritual matters. Because I don't want to get entangled in this small talks or bubble gum beliefs about god, I've been called an atheist, unbeliever and lord knows what else. Its beyond me. Not being religious means I don't have any spiritual standing, I don't get it, I don't believe in the god of Abraham, I don't believe in a god is who is a man, ehi, the list can go on.... When I mention spirituality, I might as well spoken in some Asian language. There is no meaning to that. No one listens, because its all about what we believe which is the recipe for my spiritual life. *SHOCKING*. But one thing is for sure, nobody in the family dares to engage me in a debate about these topics. I will flatten you flat. A couple of years ago I didn't take prisoners and did't have time for kindergarten belief systems. I just couldn't stand it. I didn't waste time at all. If simple things are in front of you and you can't grasp them, I had little patients for you. Why would I have patients for things such as God is a man and all will be well, be born again, hell hell hell.... To them its all about words, getting attached to them. As time went on, I learned to keep calm and just stay on my own path. Its a very lonely road but I'm enjoying the trip every step. Getting a taste of yourself, of your immortality can't be described. The human body fades, and it is nothing, I mean nothing from to this one taste I had. Chalay stop, heeerr

My senior aunt often said to me: let people talk as they will always talk once what they say is not true let it pass like a wild fire in the forest. I hold true to that statement that is why I pay little attention to those who are speaking because they have the breath to do so.

My point is: if someone is to say I am a prostitute then let them run with it since I know that I am not, but at the same time I might let it be a FYI statement for the mind bogglers.

Everyone is different, but I will not batter a loved one for having a different perspective about spiritual matters or the lack thereof. Nonetheless, I do hope you know that all Christians do not look down on their loved ones for being different, but embrace them as a family member instead with love and respect.

If you do not believe in God then you do not believe in God—that is your prerogative. However, you must understand that it is the perpetual entitlement and responsibility of all Christians to continually share the gospel and it is not to disrespect anyone, but to obey the Lord.

I am a woman who has multiple obligations, relationship wise and as such serenity and peace of mind are my best friends. I have no time to stress myself over anyone who tends to misunderstand or maliciously approach me with strife.

Personally, I hold close the scripture that says: “And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.” Matthew 10:14

That scripture has nothing to do with uncleanness; it simply means that we should not waste our time trying to change anyone or force one’s beliefs on another as long as the message is delivered and they do not accept it then it is time to move on knowing that you have done your part. It (trying to change or force someone and them not listening) will only bring strife and resentment which I do not indulge myself in. If persons are interested after I state what I needed to share the first time then they can initiate the interest of wanting to know more and I will gladly oblige.

A thousand years to us is only one day to God therefore, men might think that they have heard about this Jesus, the end time, the rapture, and the like, but they have not seen anything of such dating back to their forefathers. People can doubt whatever they want due to the lack of seeing it with their own physical eyes, but one day will come even if after our death, God’s purpose will be fulfilled just the way he said it; notwithstanding our absent, present, believe, or disbelieve-- it shall inescapably come to pass.

Q, I empathized with you as you take your solitary truth journey, but albeit, I hope that you find what you seek and that you benefit from your own spiritual or scientific discoveries.

P.S. Christians and every other spiritual person are still human beings whose flesh will contaminate their spiritual character periodically.

Thank you but I have no idea what this inner scientific discovery is. loool. Its the first time I've heard such a thing and I can't stop laughing. But i think I know of someone who is doing that.
