Atheists of Reddit:Can you explain to me why the idea of a God is so unbelievable to you?

I guess what I want to know is why do you guys find it so hard to believe in the idea of a God? I’m assuming a lot of you believe in string theory, or at least the plausibility of string theory, and the idea of a multiverse. But if there are an infinite amount of universes, making any scenario possible in at least one of them, wouldn’t that mean that one of them would have to have an all powerful God? And if this God is all powerful, wouldn’t he have domain over all of the universes? Or, more simply, what about the idea of a deity turns you away? Thankyou for your answers in advance.

A lack of evidence in favor of said conclusion.

I think you’ll find that most atheists won’t say that it is impossible that any god exists but that they think it’s incredibly unlikely that the god of the bible exists given that the bible is so scientifically and historically inaccurate and it seems odd that he would care so much about my penis.

There are people who “swear by the historical and accuracy” of every single religious book out there, ever – even though they contradict each other (and themselves). They are what we in the business call “wrong.”                Heck, there are people who swear by the accuracy of Fox News too…something that just makes me swear, period.

There has never been a single iota of verifiable proof of any deity of any type interfering in our universe. Natural laws of physics prove themselves over and over again.                  

So, the possibility of a “hands-off” deity still exists. But, modern cosmology and evolutionary theory give us an explanation for how the universe formed from a very simple accumulation of energy (the Big Bang). We can easily infer, from basic information theory, that it is arbitrarily more likely that this simple energy “just existed” than it is that an exceedingly complex deity “just existed” and created the simple energy and set it in motion.                     Through those two observations, one cannot absolutely prove the non-existence of a god. But, you can prove it to an arbitrary confidence interval, which means that I am just as confident that there is no god than I am that the Earth revolves around the Sun, or that if I jump, I will accelerate towards the Earth at about 9.8 meters per second per second (minus wind resistance, of course). That’s good enough, in my book.

I don’t think the idea of god is unbelieveable, I just think it’s sad to credit everything to a god when we still have perfectly good science to test things out and find out what’s really going on. It just seems like a cop-out to me.

Each god refutes all the other gods that went before…

I don’t necessarily disbelieve of a supernatural being putting things in motion but I have a very hard time with humans’ perception of who or what a God is. I don’t subscribe to their definition and arbitrary rules.

Equally possible then, are there universes where I’m an all powerful god?

I’ve read a few Michio Kaku books, but beyond that, I don’t know anything about quantum physics.

What I do know is that everything that I’ve observed and everything I’ve understood other people have observed and every science experiment that is carried out properly can be repeated and all of this happens without any outside interference at all.

Everything can be explained without gods.          There were things 50 years ago that we couldn’t explain that we can explain now. There’s no doubt in my mind that that things we don’t understand now will be explained in the near future. And none of it takes any intervention from any god-like being.        How we came to be here? Very likely solved. How the Earth goes around the Sun? Got it. How to build buildings so they don’t fall down in earthquakes? No sweat. How to predict the path of hurricanes? Getting better. How hurricanes work? We know. Gravity? More or less. Evolution? Yep, pretty much have all our bases covered.           And the best thing is, there’s new stuff cropping up all the time. And none of it needs gods. I don’t need the stories told by bronze age people to guide my life. My life is guided just fine by everything around me. There’s nothing so miraculous in it. It just works because it works (and sometimes doesn’t work) all without a single hand guiding it.        It’s beautiful.          An indifferent or cruel god smirking over it would just cheapen everything.

 There is no evidence of a God. Science has proven religious concepts false in many areas already.

Unexplained and Inexplicable are not the same thing.             Besides, as far as proof of god, that’s a losing game for you to get into. Once, science couldn’t explain lighting – so a god was said to toss lighting bolts. It couldn’t explain the movements of the sun – so gods were said to move a ball of fire across the sky. It couldn’t explain…  …you get the idea. The fact is that this is an endless retreat for the “god” explanation, to the point these days that believers are forced to bring up quirky little questions of advanced physics to assign to the “you can’t explain it, therefore God!” category.                   And there’s only one way an endless retreat like that can end up.

The vaguer the definition, the more pointless the belief.

  5. The issues involving dark souls 2 free download is a huge popular topic amongst scholars for quite some time.

    At first glance dark souls 2 free download may seem unenchanting,
    however its study can be a necessity for any one wanting
    to intellectually advance beyond ones own childhood. Until recently considered taboo amongst polite society, several of todays the majority brilliant minds
    seem not capable of recognising its increasing meaning to understanding future generations.
    It still has the electricity to shock those politicaly minded individuals living
    up to now, many of whom do not comprehend the full scope of dark souls 2 free download.
    With the primary purpose of demonstrating my considerable intellect I will now demonstrate the complexity of the
    many faceted issue that can be dark souls 2 download free.

    Social Factors

    Comparisons between Roman Population and Medieval Society give a clear picture of the
    benefit of dark souls 2 free download to developments in cultural conduct.
    I will not slander the readers inteligence by explaining this obvious comparison any longer.
    When The Tygers associated with Pan Tang sang ‘It’s
    lonely at the pinnacle. Everybody’s trying to you in’ [1], they shead new lighting on dark souls
    2 download free, allowing man to get by the hand and additionally understand its
    momentum. While deviating within the norm will always result in unrest amongst ones
    peers, dark souls 2 free download bravely illustrates what we’ve been most afraid of, what everybody knows deep down in some of our hearts.

    Status, Security, Fame – dark souls 2 free download, all revolve
    around that ‘golden fleece’. If society has a favourite child, it is dark souls 2 free download.

    Economic Factors

    Increasingly economic growth and innovation are being attributed to dark souls 2 free download.
    We will primarily be specializing in the JTB-Guide-Dog model, some sort of complex but ultimately pleasant system.

    Market
    Value
    Associated with
    Gold

    dark souls 2 free download

    Indisputably there is a hyperlink. How can this come to be explained?
    My personal view is that this market value of gold will eventually
    escape from the powerful affect of dark souls 2 free download, but not
    before we go to a standardised commercial policy for a lot of.
    The economic policy spectrum is seeing a period of time of unprecedented growth.

    Political Factors

    Modern politics owes much to the animal kingdom.

    Contrasting the various political activists campaigning for the
    interests of dark souls 2 download free can be like contemplating the two
    sides involving dark souls 2 download free.

    Let us consider what of that silver tongued orator, one of many great
    political analysts Kuuipo Skank ‘Taking some sort of walk across hot coals will inevitably
    hurt the toes. ‘ [2] What an awesome quote.
    To paraphrase, the quote says ‘dark souls 2 download free wins votes.
    ‘ Simple as that.

    The question which should each ask ourselves is actually, will we allow dark souls 2 free
    download to win our political election?
    Conclusion

    To conclude dark souls 2 free download has played a
    large part with the development of man inside 20th Century and
    its influence remains strong. It sings an exciting new song, influences the influencers, and additionally always chips in.

    For a parting shot here include the words of super-star
    Mile after mile Astaire: ‘At first We was afraid I was petrified.
    Thinking I could for no reason live without dark souls 2 download free by my side.
    ha.
