So why waste valuable time? Science cannot prove there is a god and cannot disprove there is a god. Most scientists do not believe in spiritual gods, especially observing how our species is a byproduct of Nature who has invented his gods since he began to use his brain.

(In the world of theoretical physics, these Department Heads/Groups, would never offer tenure to a Devout Muslim, an Orthodox Jew, or highly religious Christian who believes a man named Jesus died on the cross for mankind's sins. The religious beliefs, a very good part of who these religious persons are, conflict with Science' theoretical beliefs.)

In the beginning of Man's initial awareness, there was Paganism; he worshipped Mother Nature, trees, stones, animals, etc. One day there was this revelation, the concept of one god. All these gods were a creation of Mankind's imaginative mindset, a species just beginning to think in the abstract, and desperately in need of a power that was greater than himself as a protector. Our species is finite and during our short sojourn on this planet many have sought to think of an existence after death, that there is a heaven. In reality the only heaven is death, a prolonged sleep, escape from the many troubles of the world.

There are enough science fiction movies out there to whet one's appetite and those with a fertile imagination will dare to dream that perhaps in other worlds within our Universe there might be such a god(s). I have enough just trying to deal with the reality of life in this world and will leave the speculation to others.

Terrific, this ought to elevate the tone.


Nah...I love Fresco, Glitterbag.

No need for things to get heated when he does one of his things.

It is to be expected...and a benign smile is the most it elicits in me.

@Frank Apisa,
Leaves no reason to suspect a power greater than us, right?

IF you mean is there a reason to suppose there are more powerful things than humans...it is a no brainer.

Yes...it is almost a certainty that there are more powerful things than humans. Maybe even more powerful than elephants.


But if you are suggesting that it leaves reason to suppose a god exists...

...then, NO, Neo...not in any way.



Do you think it does?

@Frank Apisa,
Q: What do the words "God", "power", "exist" and "know" have in common ?
A: They are communicative tokens CONFINED TO HUMAN INTERACTION which shift their value according to context.

Q: What is the value of the word "we" in the title of your thread. ?
A: Its value is confined to THOSE HUMANS who want to label themselves "agnostics", It has no value outside of that context.

Obviously they have value to you, Fresco...or you would not be plugging into them the way you are. Does that mean you are an agnostic?

Love ya, Buddy.

Thanks for helping me here.
