You can believe something you can't prove

but you also don't have to prove a negative. atheism is the default state we are born in, and depending on where we are born and where our parents were born, we're then taught the deviation.

i know there is no supernatural as sure as i know that rayleigh scattering makes the sky look blue, and as sure as i know my dog doesn't have antlers. why? it's observable. there is a distinct absence of antlers, and there is a distinct absence of anything existing outside of the laws of physics. so, yes, i know there is no god.

Depends on your definition of God, doesn't it? My definition/idea of God is a lot like Mother Nature. A force that keeps the universe bound together. Doesn't give a poo who wins a football game. Doesn't stop tragedy from happening. Doesn't want you to give some preacher half your life savings. When you die, you're still a part of it all somehow. Unless you're a cosmonaut floating halfway to the next galaxy.

yes it does depend on your definition. the one you gave is natural, not supernatural. it's the Hawking answer and it's perfectly acceptable. he and i (we're friends) are perfectly fine with 'god' as long as it fits into the laws of physics.

I agree that Scot and Rodeo are both off base from that completely unemotional, logical base. Rodeo cannot say unequivically that there is no God because he has no substantiating evidence. Scot cannot say unequivically that there is a God for the same reason.

I can say that I cannot disprove Gods existence, but based on the substantiating evidence as presented to me, the idea of the Christian, or any other known, God is fallacy.

God can feel free to make Himself known to me at any time He wishes, at which point I will happily tell all of you that you are going to Hell. Until then, I stick with logic and reason.

God created the Laws of Physics

even if that's the case, it's impossible for him to get kurt warner all those super bowls if he's operating entirely within them.
