Actually what they'd have would not be a theory, but a hypothesis.

I stress importance of using correct words so thanks for correction.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

I can do it easily in a few words; There is no God, or gods.

Additionally, there are no unicorns, angels, leprechauns, ghosts, or fairies.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

The most you can do (and it is enough) is to demonstrate that there is no substantiation for god claims and therefore no valid reason to afford belief to them. The the preponderance of any evidence overwhelmingly demonstrates a high degree of unlikelihood.

Wow I had to go through the entire first page before seeing this rather obvious point? lol thanks Mordant....

Also.... Maths have Proofs...... @The OP the word you're looking for is Evidence..... and well the "evidence" is a lack there of. What we have is evidence that no god or gods or goddesses or magical hamburger farting unicorns are required for the universe to exist, and evidence that shows that the universe is reliable and consistent which allows us to create various technologies like computers and airplanes. And the implications of even just that understanding are fairly far reaching.

RE: Four proofs of the nonexistence of God
I only needed 1.
It was the little tyke, (6 or 7) dressed as a mouse, little grey ears, long grey tail dragging on the floor, pushing his IV pole with chemo down the hospital hall, on Halloween, doing trick and treats on the kids cancer floor.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

@DonaldTrump, Patriotism is not honoring your flag no matter what your country/leader does. It's doing whatever it takes to make your country the best it can be as long as its not violent.

I've had one of these on my fridge for at least five years, and it's not twitched once.

Unless God is purposely only flicking the pointer when I'm not looking. Consider

It's not even a hypothesis if it's non-falsifiable -- it's just a speculation.

So, what you're saying it that there ARE gnomes, gremlins, and wizards?
