    There is no God. Where's the proof? I find it so difficult to understand why people can so easily believe something that has never and probably will never be proved. Fine if I'm wrong, I'll go to hell. That's fine by me.

    I bet those who follow their religion and believe in the supernatural (yes God is classed as supernatural, should he exist) are the ones who believe the garbage the media throws at them without questioning anything, living life completely innocently and oblivious to all that's occurring.

    I simply have no reason to believe in an omnipotent, omnibenevolent, personal God.

    No.

    I used to force myself to believe in a God as recently as last October due to Pascal's Wager but then I came across a user called 'The Epicurean' who rather impressively deconstructed the arguments for God.

    By the way, does this destroy the Euthyphro dilemma?
    1) Let A be 'this action is good'
    Let B be 'God commands it'
    2) In the Euthyphro dilemma we must choose between A->B or B->A
    3)A-> B (this action is good, therefore God commands it) then logically ¬B->¬A (if God doesn't command it, this action is not good)
    4) B-> A (God commands it, therefore this action is good) then logically ¬A->¬B (if this action is not good, then God doesn't command it)

    Technically, isn't B-> A the better choice as ¬A->¬B sounds better than ¬B->¬A (since I can think of things that are considered good but is not not commanded by God 3000 years ago in the Bible)?

    Mathematics, in particular modal logic, can be used to prove anything , just look at Godel ontological argument for example , so your point seems irrelevant.

    No never have and nothing I've ever heard or read has convinced me otherwise.
    Oddly though, I did used to believe in heaven and angels when I was very small but I don't anymore.

    No i don't believe in God.
    I was born into a Catholic home, but as i grew up and experienced some situations i started to have my doubts about Christianity. I don't believe in the bible or anything in it, i just don't understand it, like how do we know whats in the bible is true? there not enough proof. I don't believe in heaven or hell either. I think there is a God/Creator but i don't know who/what it is, i consider myself Agnostic.

    Nope. I used to, for a long time, but I have far too many issues with the concept, let alone that concept existing. Too anthropocentric. Too Platonic.
