It is simple, once you realize what it means that science is methodological naturalism and based on a set of assumptions for which there are no proof or evidence.
Nature is orderly, and the laws of nature describe that order.
We can know nature.
All phenomena have natural causes.
Nothing is self evident.
Knowledge is derived from acquisition of experience.
Knowledge is superior to ignorance.
That is the definition of God as used by science. None of these assumptions can be proven...
The statement in the headline is not from me
But I got me thinking, does a thing, a being, a place not exist just because we can not see it?
God can not exist, I have never seen him/her/ it
Ghosts does not exist, I never seen proof of them ( that I accept)
Spiritual beings can not exist, science has not proven it.
Amanaki asks : Do I not exist because you have not seen me?
It doesn't matter if you believe in God, don't believe in God, are agnostic or Chose another path. Obviously everybody's happy with the path they have chosen and if they become unhappy they simply switch roads or get back on the road if it was something else that caused their unhappiness. This is why it's impossible to change ones stance on life.
The worlds problems run so much deeper than religions or lack of.
There are those of us who believe the book of Psalms in the Tanakh was definitely written by David, the father of Solomon, the Slayer of Goliath. Yet many have questioned the authorship of it. Let us just look at one point in this discourse and see if there are anything further to add in order to prove or disprove the authorship of Psalms is indeed David, the father of Solomon.
The questions on one point - The exile and the lamentation.
When did King David live according to the Bible?...
Psalm 119 is considered by Jews to be a psalm entirely about the love of Torah, that is, the divine law. Clearly the Psalmist, who some say is David (though it is anonymously written), was very much enthralled with the law of God. While not that many Jews may remember the entire chapter by heart, quite a few will recognize several verses, in particular those that were made into songs; songs about loving Torah. As the Torah as a book of law has essentially been nullified in Christianity, I'm...
Yet you have yet to explain why the American citizenship laws are reasonable and logical and the Jewish identity laws are unreasonable and illogical. You keep dodging this point. As though if you keep claiming that Jews are the only illogical entities in the universe, that will somehow make the statement true, regardless whether you actually explain it or not.
German identity means you're associated in some logical or rational way to the land of Germany. Jewish identity does not mean you're...
Just recently a law allowing child marriage (at Puberty) to be legalized in Somalia has come under world scrutiny. The Religion of peace has been very silent with only international political groups reminding the Somalian Government of previous international agreements to preventing child marriages. Somalia is not the only country which acquiesce in child marriages. Should there be a worldwide ban on such a practice?
Bill endorsing child marriages in Somalia roundly condemned
Sexual selection – non-random evolution
Evolution theory is too often presented as a simplistic random mutation followed by natural selection where only the fittest survive conjuring the image of the strongest, best hidden, fastest, or other best characteristic for pure survival. Sexual selection as seen in birds gives a much different view. Yes, there are still mutations that at random can create new characteristics that can be exploited but the selection pressure would seem to be often in...
