Has Science killed God?
Geisha's post was excellent!
I think everyone needs to ask themselves this question: "Does it matter to you whether God is actually real or not?"
If it doesn't, if you're OK with God being a feel good story which may or may not be true, then I guess that works for you. But if it actually matters to you, then you need to look at the facts. Remember, tradition, stories passed down through the generations, and what your parents taught you doesn't cut it if it actually matters if God is real. As Geisha pointed out, everyone fully believed that the earth was flat. That was tradition. That was established wisdom. That believe had been passed down through the generations. And that belief was taught to you by your parents. Guess what? It was wrong.
The same goes for "does God exist?". Unless there are hard facts to prove his existence, then it's just another "earth is flat" story.
So is there hard, scientific, repeatable, peer reviewed evidence that God exists? Not a single skeric!
Now people will say, "You need faith. You need to believe". Well of course you need faith. If there's no actual evidence at all that God exists, you're going to need to complete suspend logic and reason, and start believing that this is a God purely because people tell you there is. To have faith means to suspend all critical thinking and just to out right believe without questioning. And if there is evidence, then you don't need faith.
So is there a God? Of course not. If there was, we'd have seen proper, scientific evidence of his existence by now. No evidence? No God.
