    Well you also have to wonder what exactly makes something real as well. That you can see it? Or that your life was greatly affected by it?

    You could also use the tried and true method and just say "If there's no giant spaghetti monster flying around in space then there's no heaven either. :P"

    The burden of proof is on the side of people making unverifiable claims ("Heaven exists" is such a claim) and should not be passed to others. Read about Russell's teapot, it's a great analogy which illustrates this idea.

    Heaven is built on the idea of faith, if you know it's undoubtedly there, then there is no reason to have faith.

    We can't prove a negative so we can't prove there is no heaven anymore than we can prove there is no teapot in orbit around Mercury.

    Have you seen the Russell's Teapot argument? Bertrand Russell addresses this pretty well.

    people who beleive in god need proof of ots none existance. People who disbeleive in god need proof in it's existance. Why cant anyone just come to terms that they are insignificant peices of shit that doesnt have the capacity to know otherwise, and why can't they jsut be happy with the fact taht they don't know, and will ever know?

    Yeah that was my thought too when reading this thread - you can't prove a negative.
