Hello all, I'm new today. I recently joined the 'official blog' of the show, "The Atheist Experience". I was very disappointed. The entire blog seemed to be dominated by 4-5 individuals who were very immature. So I decided to look for better pastures. This is the first one recommend by that infamous search engine we all use. This site seems to have a huge subscription so I'm sure I will not have the same trouble here.
I am pleased to meet you all :) I have recently had a change of view. I have been an atheist for many years until a few days ago, as a matter of fact. I now consider myself an anti-theist. I would like to share with you all something I wrote in the middle of the night to formulate my new view ( I could not get to sleep until I did ). I would appreciate your thoughts on it and any counter arguments.
I will say now, I will not be responding to any obvious ad hominems, or comments that most people would regard as absurd, or infantile. I will also apologize now, for any grammatical errors I make in future comments. Whilst I may make them form time to time ( lack of patience ) it will be obvious to an educated reader what is meant. Thank you for your time.
God is Nothing
Atheist: An irrational position.
If we say, we do not believe the evidence given for the existence of a supernatural god, we are assuming the presupposition that the evidence can exist, but we have not yet been given it.
The only rational evidence that we can accept for the existence of a supernatural god would have to be evaluated under the conditions of natural science. Observation, measurement and testable experimentation.
Under those conditions, any evidence that would be accepted, is, by definition, natural. Not supernatural. Therefore, to expect natural evidence for the supernatural is irrational.
The only rational position would be anti-theism.
Nothing or no thing, can not be proven to exist in nature. We can not have evidence for it. Any evidence given would make it something. Therefore, In the same way nothing, cannot be proved to exist in nature, a supernatural god cannot be proved to exist in nature.
The concept of god and nothing are the same. Both concepts are described by the same conditions.
Therefore, god is nothing.
