RE: Why don't you believe in a possible God?
As to the OP, whenever I come across this query, I tend to ask "Which god?" Any supposed 'evidence' or even 'probability' can, imo, apply to any or even all of the thousands of gods that someone, somewhere, sometime, has believed in, revered, honored, worshipped etc.

I consider myself a poly-agnostic, and i reckon if there can be one god, there is just as much likelihood there are thousands. But I just don't know. So i will cherrypick my gods and goddesses, whatever takes my fancy, to wonder if they are real or not.

Uhm, yeah. Never denied the possibility of such, only the flaw of what society calls normal.
Not talking possibilities pops, you agreed you ARE one.

If you consider a society that considers an unmedicated attempted murderer with a compulsion towards dishonesty who "talks to god" and threats to hurt people when his panties get twisted a lunatic to be a "flawed" society you should never be in any position of authority at all ever.

I didn't just mean people pops I meant any kind of authority at all. Raising kids for example. Drinking Beverage Actually to be perfectly frank if someone put you in charge of babysitting a potato I'd actually take it way from you cause you would be unqualified for that responsibility.

Also I'd be worried you would hear voices from the potato and shoot up a mall or something.Drinking Beverage

Please explain in detail.
It's a means to bring out a condition. Not that I limit GOD or it's will.



Non/avoidance of answer proves. POE.

Giving human qualities to the One Creator GOD is a means of understanding based on our limited perspective, yet many let it wholly flaw their motives.

First, throw out greed, consciously.

Be utterly introspective and honest with self on all levels, even if only through retrospect initially.

If you can do both of those, I'm bet you'd get shown.

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt.

What would it take for me to believe again? I've asked myself this question more than once. I have spent decades overcoming my religious indoctrination and still find it difficult to put it all firmly behind me. So God should have a bit of an advantage, one would think. Still, having found simple faith insufficient, I'm going to need something more than promises and threats; I'm going to have to be shown something that can have no other possible explanation. What would that be? To be fair, I can't demand something ridiculous (a rock so heavy that even He can't lift it). It's a problem. Then I realized it isn't my problem, it's God's. If He is everything He's supposed to be, He knows better than anyone, even me, how to bring me back. In other words I should let go and let God, to borrow a favorite phrase of the faithful, and that is exactly what I've done. So far, though, the aether has been silent.

RE: Why don't you believe in a possible God?
It isn't disbelief if you've never believed. I didn't once believe and now I've unbelieved, though many have that experience.

I did not have the label atheist until a believer insisted I quantify my unbelief. I dislike having to be labeled because of what I am not. I don't have to state I'm amurdererist or athiefist people assume you are not something until you tell them you are. Except with religion.

As to why I have never believed in gods... no evidence. As soon as someone has verifiable repeatable evidence that gods exist I am all to willing to consider the evidence.
