Just curious about the poll....

Remember, this is only about whether or not God exists, not other nuances like 'oh, I could be wrong about predestination', etc.

Personally, my opinion is that I don't believe any "God" exists (as we refer to deities anyway). I could be wrong, but the evidence, to me, suggests it to be the most rational conclusion.

Could you be just a bit more specific? Which "God"?
There are only about 3,000 of the well known ones, are 2,999 wrong and just one particular 'god' right?

This question actually isn't about God.

"The quest to feel certain becomes an idol when a person’s sense of significance to God and security before God is anchored not in their simple trust of God’s character, as revealed on the cross, but in how certain they feel about the rightness of their beliefs.†â€" Greg Boyd

Okayyyy.... is it about mmmmmm... potato chips? 'Cause I'm pretty stoked about the Pringles chips with sour cream flavor.

Logically, there's a slightly better chance that 3,000 of 3,000 god-like entities are mere 'man's fiction' than that 2,999 are just weird shot that people dream up and one is the straight up gospel truth.

You may, then, have more in common with many religious folks than you think.

i understand what you're getting at, but my position differs by being based in logic. there is nothing logical about a theist's belief. also,the qualifications for knowledge are that one believes something, and that something need be true.

my position is demonstrably true...

nothing supernatural can exist.
god is supernatural.
.'. god can't exist

The question is about as relevant as life after death. Either there is life after death, don't worry about it or there isn't, thus, don't worry about it.

for something to exist, it must have measurable physical properties. there must be some effect on the physical world that can be observed due to it being there. in science, these measurable physical properties define what is natural.
