    If you could prove God, and not be against God, would you?

    Wouldn't that defeat the whole purpose of religion in the first place?

    You couldn't. End of. The "God of the gaps" argument would always arise.

    Proof that god can't do "everything and anything".

    Could god create an object so heavy/large that he himself could not lift?
    It's paradoxical.

    The problem with proving God's existence is that it would completely undermine religion. Bit of a paradox. In Catholicism, or Christianity at least, believing is just that; I suppose they say seeing is believing, but in my opinion the act of believing is what He does to test those who are worthy or not. If everyone knew he definitely existed then praying would become worthless - loses all value as it would be a small price for those who just want a guaranteed ticket to Heaven.

    There's no tribulation otherwise. Cannot find an appropriate noun.

    The whole point of religion is faith, that's because God can't be proved.
    But if He could be proved, surely you'd want to tell everyone!!!!!!!!

    I think this sums it up:

    Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything [babel fish] so mindboggingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God. The argument goes something like this:
    `I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, `for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.'
    `But,' says Man, `The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED.'
    `Oh dear,' says God, `I hadn't thought of that,' and promptly vanished in a puff of logic.


    Proof of god invalidates the blind faith that is a pre-requisite of all religions and paradoxically disproves the existence of god.

    One could say you're submitting human reasoning to something that man cannot possibly comprehend, and thus, no such paradox exists.

    Absolutely. I don't believe in god, let alone any proof, but if I could, certainly would.

    Yes. If I could prove it it would be the truth, and I don't think the truth should be withheld (or at least that particular truth)
