Just out of curiosity: how can you be so sure about God's non-existance?

How can anyone be so sure he/she does exist? That was in my opinion only. Nothing has been shown to me that proves he/she does or ever did exist. Therefore I choose to be Atheist, I believe in no deity.

Ok, so let's turn the question around: have any one showed you, or proved to you that there is an evidence that he or she dosen't exist? Or Evidence of an alternative view of the origins of the Universe. Someone (Studabaker?) might say in return: "you can't proove a negative assertion" or something to that effect. But say, if there is no God, we should find a suitable alternative explanation for the natural world and our own existance...

I don't want to be polemical (on this particular subject), I respect you opinion. I just think it is quite an intangible question to adress (i.e. a univesal creator) from a rational point of view.

I am not a necessary advocate of the existence of a God, but I consider it to be possible that, somewhere down the line, there was the hand of a intelligent force (be it in the creation of the "known" universe or at the first spark of life). I just think we don't have the mental structure and cultural knwoledge to objectively adress thay question yet...

I think those are the central misteries that lie inside of the meaning of life...

STRANGE MAN:
I wonder where that fish has gone.
STRANGE WOMAN:
You did love it so. You looked after it like a son.
STRANGE MAN:
And it went wherever I did go.
STRANGE WOMAN:
Is it in the cupboard?

Hahaha yeah I'd agree haha. Personally I think she's really of equine decsent and is really a horsey in a latex mask, making money to fund her evil plot to take over the world. One day she will reveal herself as the horsey-aintichrist and commit all of us non-Celine fans to an eternity burning in the lava pits of hades.

Any day you wake up above ground is reason enough to celebrate.
Enjoy it while you got it because once it's gone, someone else will end up with your Zappa collection.

Also I like my Apple Jacks somewhere in between crunchy and mushy.

You know we got to sit around at home
And watch this thing begin
But I bet there won't be many live
To see it really end
'Cause the fire in the street
Ain't like the fire in the heart
And in the eyes of all these people
Don't you know that this could start
On any street in any town
In any state if any clown
Decides that now's the time to fight
For some ideal he thinks is right
And if a million more agree
There ain't no Great Society
As it applies to you and me
Our country isn't free
And the law refuses to see
If all that you can ever be
Is just a lousy janitor
Unless your uncle owns a store
You know that five in every four
Just won't amount to nothin' more
Gonna watch the rats go across the floor
And make up songs about being poor

Blow your harmonica, son!

if a wave equals a wave, all time equals all other time, so you ain't goin' nowhere, 'cause you already been there, and if you could view this whole mechanism from a distance, it would just be a solid object

sooner or later, everyone's going to have to dump the idea of atoms and all the rest of that shit and get down to business

42 comes from Douglas Adams' Hitch-Hiker's Guide books. These mice-people build a machine to tell them the answer to the question of life, the universe, and everything, and the answer is 42, so they have to build another computer to find out the question, which is, "What is six times nine?"
I'm amazed no-one picked this up before, 42 is six times seven.

Anyway, the real question is, "How many beans in every cup of Nescafe?" You've been told in the ads that it's 43, but you've been misled all these years by the media, it's really only 42. So, we've been shortchanged. What's new, that's life.

Heaven of mine is 42 in a 13er system, a-wot?
(0-9, a, b, c --> 4x13¹ plus 2x13°, two times one that is = stupendous fifty-four)

would be easy for B'Elanna Torres: C00* (169=13x13) added to C21 (196=14x14) equals w8, 4c? 2 1, a year (13²+14² is 365 a-yeah! ...1&1=11; try 111 111 111²) good luck. A blog telling all overfantastic facts about our planet, life, uniqueworth & -horn and laughs would make your very tale fairly spinning... Richterscales, goose-fur all over, tellingya. Is wandering allowed? ..my skin is already strolling.

...at present methinks that we are appointed of going to become gods, from all one knows ...at other times that thinking about an omnipotent being without having been created is the most difficult question, a person who knows what I mean ..should ..... leave it to me, hey. Do not marvel anymore. Whatever it is, either a spontaneous quantum jump out of the sea consisting in virtual party-calls, lols, already proven in ..wozzit the Casimir-Force? (the vacuum is not empty, rather overflowing with energy finding a way of materializing in stuff, E=mC²) anyway, in the enoughingness where there is nix, a power pushes two probes closer, cuz more comes in from the outside than the same force might muster up against it from less lying inside (==>> |<- ->| <<==) let me look it up once more for ya.

Better yet, a any kind of silly not-ion would be stupid. So my best bet and too easy to perceive I guess, this our tumultiverse, rof..r ..HA! is the only means whatsoever. Get tha`? all else would surprise the grinning cat. Okay, you could do it mooch beta. We are in a go'd game ooh wo? gold medal for the first susserer, they is snacks. I mean, there had to be something, from this super-reality one can state that this is now going-on forever, can be started again or what is your hare doing under that magic hat?-)


*) now I am getting new hair-style, See? the light of speech


...scene yV:44? all the tiMe. We 4ce, ...off course.
