You can't prove God via empirical data because He is an unfalsifiable claim.

God cannot be proved or disproved via empirical evidence. The only forms of "evidence" that can prove God is anecdotal and faith... and these don't fall into the category of evidence... hence, there is no answer to the question. You just can't.

I'm wondering if all ontological beliefs are unfalsifiable.

Because to me if Physicalism were true than God does not exist, but I guess that would amount to trading one unfalsifiable for another? It also seems to me that while belief in God or Physicalism can be reasonable, it would still remain unfalsifiable.

It seems to me that if what you're suggesting is accurate. Then falsifiability can only apply to areas in the methodological domain, but not the ontological domain. You can only negate one ontological claim, by an opposing one it seems.

No I'm looking for the theistic views. I clearly asked what evidence u got to prove the existence of God?

This forum`s name is "The Thinking Atheist" , what made you think that you will find theists here in the first place?
And even if you rightly assumed we do have some , they had to be a small minority ,and this is what makes your question a bit strange.

Materialism is falsifiable.

I know this is An atheist forum. I just want to get the answers from theists or ex believers and I clearly mentioned it. So if you guys (theists and ex believers) got some evidence then please share. If you don't have anything to say about the thread,mother kindly please don't act strange Smile

Man, if THAT's the toughest thing KC has to deal with on this board on any given day, I think he'd consider it vacation! Tongue

Laugh out load

Much love, bro.

Whadda mean, "don't act strange?" Not even possible. Tongue

My postings earlier were to express the contention that the only evidence for god is within; that it's a matter of perspective. Persuasion is essentially the only god.

First you have to know what God is/Gods are. Then we can talk about evidence.
You can't have evidence of something if you have no idea what this "something" is.
So, what God/Gods are you asking about?
