naturalman
you asked, First one would have to prove the existance (existence) of the Abrahamic God.
I would ask you, can you disprove him?

Are you asking can I disprove "him", the Abrahamic God? No, I do believe the God of Abraham lives. But that is my belief. In reality no one can prove Him or disprove Him. That is something between God and the believer or disbeliever. (My opinion)
Do you feel you can disprove Him, the God of Abraham?
If you're asking can I disprove the "naturalman", then again I ask, what do you consider the "naturalman" to be?

I am asking if you can disprove that Naturalman is the Abrahamic god.

Or should I quote myself...

I cannot make the question much clearer, if you cannot understand it at this point, I'm not sure what I can do to help that.

I was trying to save you face so you didn't look like an idiot. But it seems I may have failed.

I think he is a captain cynic poster like yourself, one that you have directly responded to and named by that name, as a poster.

Now, can you prove that he is not the Abrahamic god?

Got something to say about Abraham

No Offence but i think Abraham was a terriorist , those people were willing to believe that he talked to God in order to steal Land , just because this terriorist Abraham said God gave him that Land and now 2000 years latter they still fighting for the land What IDIOTS and us for believing this too because if you don't believe God gave this Land to Abraham you are Dam To Hell!.

HAVE A NICE DAY!

"1. One can prove with certainty that an entity does not exist if (a) the concept of that entity is incoherent, or (b) the existence of that entity is logically incompatible with obviously present states of affairs.

2. One can be rationally justified in claiming that an entity does not exist without being certain that it does not exist. This justification comes from (a) the improbability that that entity exists given various states of affairs, and/or (b) the principle of parsimony coupled with a lack of evidence for the existence of that entity." - from Mark Vuletic- in the newsletter [FreeMind].

Ok, since this "god" is an intangible thing. Id like to think that the existance of such an entity could or could not be provin by trying to prove that another intangible exists or does not.

Example: Prove that love exists or passion. If any of these things could be provin to exist then id think we'd have our god.

My reasoning> By proving something intangible exists id think that anyone whos ANYONE would need faith and faith is really a large part of whats it all about.

Faith is what though?

Faith in the limited minds of humans?

Such a thing can't be concieved by the human mind, therefore making it the "God" who created us.

Well, I can have faith in my logic, cant I? I could prove that.

You could have faith in your logic, and most religous people do, but taken from a logical standpoint your faith would be fruitless seeing as you cannot fully prove that "God" does or doesn't exist.

Well god is intangable. You could prove he exists as much anything intangable. like love or passion.

Indeed you could.

But the reason that we can describe love or passion is because we have come into contact with such things throughout our lives, without having to be taught them.

It is a firm belief of mine that one cannot truly understand or grasp anything unless they have experienced it.

"God" is taught, love and passion in their true forms are not.




If "God" did indeed make us in his image, then why wouldn't we all default to the correct religion, why would the cultural aspect play a part in our choice of "God"?

My answer:
Because we are taught to believe in "God".
