Where did you hear this from?

If God does exist, the entire world becoming Atheists would not halt His existence.

If you believe otherwise, please explain -

I meant that if everyone on the planet was atheist then god, satan et al would cease to exist given that these are merely constructs of the human mind.
By extension, if that were the case, no one would be an "a"theist because there would be no supernatural entity to be "a" about.

If about 99,000,000,000 people have died since the beginning of man kind, you think at least one spirit would tell everybody there is an after life.

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

When I made the statement "If God does exist", that means I'm setting up the premise for the statement immediately following it.

In other words, "If God does exist" means, hypothetically or something to that effect.

So I'll ask the question again; hypothetically If God does exist, people disbelieving in His existence would not take away His existence.
We can drag this logic into the natural realm with ease. Example; The planet Venus exists, but if not one person believed in it's existence, it would continue to exist within the natural realm without any real problems given it's not destroyed by some massive meteor or Nova.

RE: I think it's confirmed by now...
So where are you going with this? Are you saying that the supernatural is not a construct of the human mind? If so, please provide evidence.

Dunno 'bout that. Got an itch in my ear the other night which implanted the earworm “Human decency is not derived from religion. It precedes it.” and I couldn't get to sleep.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Man I miss CH, he had a awesome voice and he was such a good debator.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.

Hypothetically if a "God" does exist... either it would think I am irrelevant... or I would think it irrelevant... more than likely, both. Wink
