I have been reading posts from many Dopers who claim to be atheists.
My question is this: If anyone can PROVE beyond doubt that God (or anything else for that matter) doesn’t exist, should we all then consider that person a god himself?
Let’s presume for a moment that God doesn’t exist. We still wouldn’t “know” it. For us to be sure that anything doesn’t exist we must have looked everywhere. Therefore, he who claims to “know” that God doesn’t exist must have looked everywhere, would that not make said person a god himself? It seems to me that atheism is a self defeating principal.
Now lets say God does exist. All we need to do is to look until we find Him. It’s a much easier process than looking everywhere.
Oh, and finally, if any (so called) atheists tries to tell me that they don’t “know” there is no God, they just “believe” it. Please feel free to refer to yourself as an agnostic.
