    Default A Question For Believers

    Believers of a specific God, I ask you:

    If I were able to prove that your God did not exist, would you want to know?

    Edit: I should have made this a poll; I don't even plan to respond. I just would like to know how you would answer this, because my religious friend just told me "No," which was surprising.

    How does one prove the non-existence of something?

    This is scary and probably a fairly common sentiment, which is scarier.

    I think he means hypothetically. If it was possible. Would a person rather be held ignorant. Or face the truth.

    I find the question very interesting. But I'm no believer. :P

    This is like the "can God create a rock so heavy he can't move it?" question.

    Try to observe whatever effects that thing would have if it exists. If the effects aren't there, it doesn't exist.

    I know He does exist because He talks to and guides/helps me daily, so the question really is pointless to me.
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    I don't understand how, being a Christian and a searcher of Truth, it would be okay to answer "no" to the original question. But, then there's the thought that it is/will always be impossible to prove that God is not real.
