    I doubt we'll ever be able to prove that God exists, but people will continue to believe anyway and that must be respected.

    Why?
    Because. You can have a debate questioning the existence of god, but you can't go belittling people or imposing your opinion on them just because they believe in God.

    People have a right to freedom of religion. Whether you agree with what someone believes or not, they hold that belief and it may make perfect sense to them.

    Why is not possible to both allow people to have a right to freedom of thought/religion and not have to respect those thoughts/religions?

    The answer to this is so blindingly obvious.


    Do you think you're the first person in 2,000 years of Christianity to think of this question?

    Because the minute people stop respecting difference is when the persecution starts.

    It is. Who you respect or don't is your own affair. Except for people closest to you, no one really cares about your opinions on who deserves respect or doesn't. You just need to treat people with respect -- that is the only thing that is required.

    For example, I've responded to you politely, despite my respect, or lack thereof, of your ability, to construct an argument or draw a valid conclusion from it.

    While we can't disprove or prove the existence of a god, we can do the next best thing and disprove certain religions. All religions that state that their gods are omnipotent are demonstrably false. That includes Islam, Christianity, Judaism and a whole bunch of others. The reason is simple: if god is omnipotent then he/she should be able to create a boulder so heavy that even they can't lift it. If they can't, they're not omnipotent. But if they do manage to create the boulder then they're not powerful enough to lift it, so they're not omnipotent.

    That simple paradox is enough to disprove most religious ideas about god(s). Sorry religious people, you're going to need to rethink things a bit.

    I was more approaching from the other angle, but I would say so. We don't have to like it (in fact I don't), but as long as they're not breaking any laws, I would say yes.

    I love that paradox, it's an interesting idea.

    what if God controlled the path evolution took?
    God cannot be created or destroyed, just like energy can't be created or destroyed
    cause and effect is a thing of the material world, as is time, and God isn't within it, the same laws don't apply to Him

    What if energy is actually God?
