Re: What if God is a provable phenomenon?
To me, this idea is no different than me saying I have an invisible unicorn in my house that feeds me popcorn, but nobody else can observe it with any if their natural senses. Logic come is and says that the idea of this unicorn is an unfalsifiable claim and therefore holds no merit, but then I say "oh, don't worry, one day science may be able to prove my unicorn, so we should all just justify my belief until then".

This is a ridiculous notion.

So is, equally, the notion you have put forward.

I would also classify myself as Chaos does an "agnostic atheist" for the way you describe God in the general sense i.e there is no evidence for such a God and therefore I lack belief. Your description of God is not dogmatic on attributes or religion and has quite flexible interpretation.

I don't know absolutely such a God does not exist.
(sometimes called "weak atheism") i.e epistemologically I am agnostic (I have no knowledge of such a god) and belief wise I am atheist (I lack belief in such a god as I lack belief in unicorns and fairies)

However: I would be a strong "positive" atheist *Knowing* Christianity is false and Jesus is not a god. This is due to internal contradictions and some outright irrationality within Christianity - in order to belief such a deity I would have to abandon all logic, reasoning and it makes no sense to do that.

My point is you can be agnostic or weak atheist to some concepts of God and strongly atheistic positively knowing other concepts of God are completely irrational.
See my threads on "what is sacrifice" for more details on some of the extremely irrational ideas in Christianity.

Have I got a new nickname? Consider

God is provable.

He just fails every test.

My claim to being the best lover on earth is provable. Provably false (unfortunately. Hey, I can take it).

But think of all the testing and qualifying you'll have to do.

Actually, it only takes one woman saying, "Meh, I've had better."

No one ever said those words, but more than one has voted with her... feet.

If they're voting with their feet you might not be doing it right.
