I just want to know what kind of 'God' that atheists don't believe. My guess is the God that religious people believe, someone/something sitting in a place so-called Heaven, rewarding and punishing here and there....
There are many people following various spiritual streams that believe in God in a completely different way than the religious people do. Maybe atheists should consider that also before believing that God doesn't exist.

Perhaps another question might be. How does one believe in something they do not know or do not understand without faith being in action. Whether you believe or do not believe one must first know or experience what they are believing or disbelieving.

So you accept Science cannot disprove God. What is the problem if people follow religions till God is disproved?

There is no problem as long you don't start religous wars, preach hate towards that which 'god' deems unworthy, kill in his name or try to convert me to your beliefs with force. As long as someone keeps his religion to himself and stays peaceful, I have no quarrel with him and can be his friend.

Of course not, it will never disprove a deity.  There will always be gaps in scientific knowledge that can be filled with God ("Holy Spackle" I have heard it named)  It will still not be rational.

The other day, I saw a single chicken feather. I was looking at every detail, every strand of that one feather and I marvel. Then my though fly from that single feather to the many feathers like that covering the body of a chicken, and of different chickens, and of different bird species in the world.  Who can make such intricate and detailed feather design like that as covering of birds while every feather is different from the other and different still with each and every bird?

I don't want to sound like I am against anyone else's religion because I believe anyone can believe in whatever they want to. But, I do believe that science disproves him. Me and my cousin have talked about this. We decided that if he was real, then when people were send into the sky and beyond, they would have seen him. So unless he is invisible then he isn't real. Again, this is only my belief.

I think we all accept that science can neither prove nor disprove the existence of God, and it doesn't really matter. We can't know everything, and even if there was definitive proof one way or the other, not everyone would accept it. Personally, I love to wonder at the intricacies and the mysteries of the world we live in. I don't need 'proof' to know that there is a wonderful world out there.

If you think about God as being something more than a man in the sky, something a lot harder to put in a box, then yes, that God definitely cannot be proved or disproved by science. Atheism, anyway, isn't necessarily a hunt to disprove God or religion. On the contrary, it is just a name for the belief that there is nothing to disprove in the first place.

Science fails for people because they are merely trying to substitute science in the place of God, which is totally contradictory to what they are trying to achieve. Science is merely a part of God or the universe, it is not meant to fully explain it, or to be worshiped like God, or to be made into a religion.

No, science cannot disprove God.

Nor can religion prove Him.

Tie game - get out and enjoy life. It's short.

The problem is that those people are giving up a large part of the control of their lives to something they cannot touch, smell, see or taste.

When an ailing child is refused a critical operation or transfusion because of the religious beliefs of their parents, it's a problem.

When even one person is killed in the name of a religion, it's a problem.

When a person is given false hope, it's a problem.

When a person relies upon prayer, rather than self-action, to solve their problems, it's a problem.

When the style and content of a person's sex life is mandated by religion, it's a problem.

When children are molested by supposedly-trusted members of a religion, it's a problem.

When racism, prejudice and misinformation is broadcast by a religion, it's a problem.

Science can disprove God... God is a human enigma, humanity came to being in the modern sense 100,000 years ago. The worship of idols such as the sun bore the fruit of worshipping Gods.

Since man has had a need for power over his fellow man since humans were primative (and still they are in primative thought), and the emergence of the modern text to write books along with strike fear into those who do not have any form of power and will follow a leader - Science disproved the existance of God many moons ago.

It is those who chose to put the blinkers up and follow an all seeing invisible figure that disbelieve that science disproves their God(s).

You see once upon a time a guy wrote a book based on another religion that preceeded his religion by some 3000 years - because he gained more FOLLOWERS - his word became the bias. Back in those days humans were scared of thunder, floods, fire and war - given a savior they would follow anything.

Religion is ancient law - in 2000 years the God's and prophets of tomorrow will be those who wrote the laws today - it is as simple as that.

It seems that the scientists have made it their mission to disprove God with the discovery of the "god" particle.

I don't really have a problem with science trying to disprove God because I choose to believe and that is all that matters to me.

I don't do any of the things you mentioned above, and very much so, agree with the fact that all of the things you have mentioned are problems.  The problem I have with "blaming" all religion for the things above is that it is definitely a slippery slope.  When children are molested by a man who is an atheist; all male atheists are problems.  When even one person is killed by a crazy mother; all women who are mothers are a problem. 

Like I said, I agree with you that all of the things you mentioned are problems...but all of the things you mentioned are present in today's society without religious influence as well.

It's certainly not ONLY religion that is responsible, but religion DOES add to the burden with their own unique blend of insanities, a blend that is conspicuously absent from non-religious crimes. I doubt that there's any way to actually break down a list of crimes (except the most blatant) into "Religiously Motivated" and "Non-Religiously Motivated", but I would be willing to bet that it ends up somewhere around 40/60 religious/non-religious.

If I didn't believe in God I might not kill in His name; if I didn't see the priesthood as being a haven for pedophiles I might not have had the opportunity to abuse children, and if it wasn't against the mandate of my faith I might have taken my child to a doctor instead of a mortician.
