would you dial your level of skepticism impossibly high so as to avoid any uncomfortable personal philosophical conflicts you may encounter in the process?

I happen to be an agnostic, not an atheist. But if you are telling me you have real verifiable evidence of a god, then really you should be prepping for your appearances every TV show worldwide next week.

the nature of the debate denies the ability to know for sure either way. because it cannot be empirically proved that this IS a god, or that there ISN'T, it takes at least some ammount of faith to chose whichever side you're on.

therefore, we have to go with the next best thing - and that's evidence.

there's quite a bit of evidence, zod.

Can you prove to me there is no easter bunny or santa claus? how about proving to me that the hindu gods don't exist?

Even ya boy Richie Dawkins said he's not a 7 on the belief scale, for he cannot absolutely be certain there is no God/god/intelligent being/creation force thingy.

On a scale of 1 to 7, where 1 is certitude that God exists and 7 is certitude that God does not exist, Dawkins rates himself a 6: "I cannot know for certain but I think God is very improbable, and I live my life on the assumption that he is not there."

i'm aware of the laws of the burden of proof, but if evidence were hoisted to the contrary of what you already believe, would you be willing to review it objectively, and abandon the personal philosophical desires that would hold you back from an unbiased review of said evidence?

Well then can we agree that he has some level of "faith" to "believe" without "empirical evidence" that there is no type of creation being/force?

He does state the it is not absolute, so he must think that what he believes is the correct assumption.
