Do you want to know?

But if you don't know, how do you know that? How do you know no one else does if you don't even know it? Can you even define what it is you don't know in order to conclude you don't know it? Ok, my head hurts now. Unsure

I don't know of any gods

The day to day stuff, I'm fairly certain on.
The other stuff, evidence helps when it comes to knowledge. And new evidence can expand or even change our knowledge completely.

Just because we don't know everything, doesn't mean that we don't know something's.

Thankfully you're one that doesn't resort to a God when you don't know something.

As a musician I fully appreciate this. Now I'm doing the "STUMBLE" through the interwebs and reminiscing. Got my 80's hat on.

RE: I don't know.
I like Guy Harrison's response to we don't know *for sure* re: god(s) existence.

To be sure, to be 100 percent "covered" we could spend our lives praying, worshiping all the various gods that ever are, ever were, and ever will be. And even if we did this 24 hours a day, every day of the week, there would still be no way to pay homage to all of them. Of course, doing this may piss off some rival gods in the process, so there's that to consider as well. We could spend our entire lives praying, trying to please various deities at an exhausting rate, hoping we got it right.

Or we could be secure in knowing we don't know *for sure* and rest in what we do know, which is that there is zero evidence for any of these gods. We can surmise that if we grew up in another time, another place, or another country, our beliefs would be shaped by whatever the cultural religion was in that particular place/time. And we can live our lives fully instead of living our one life at the mercy of deities--of which there is no evidence for.

Your welcome. That was the point. None of us knows everything. The path that we take to knowledge is what's important. It's OKAY to say "I don't know". It's not OK to say IDK "therefore it must be GOD".
