    Most human gods are absolutely disgusting, deplorable creatures unworthy of reverence by anyone

    But what's an example of a human god? Also, what's an example of a human God, you have to capitalize it, it's God, even if it's disgusting you have to honor the reality by the capital G.

    False

    God is a proper noun referring a single entity

    I am referring to a number of gods greater than or equal to 2, so I cannot use this proper noun

    Grammar doesn't apply in the God-world, plus, how come? Can't there be multiple Gods with the capital... why not capitalize everything, live life in caps-lock. Give it a try, maybe I'll take my own advice on that actually.

    TRUE!!!!!

    EDIT: also, you could say, greater than 1... a number of Gods greater than one. Unless u're a believer in the imaginary Gods, square root of two type gods, pi gods.. etc.

    I believe that most gods are imaginary, so I am still right

    I knew you were right when I started, & gods are entirely imaginary... I was just clowning around with all that. Yes, gods are imaginary, but they can still bring amusement into one's life, if considered in their proper distinction. The first thing to remember about gods is that they're a lot like people.

    So don't blame God for what people did in His name, guided by corrupt and greedy men.
    I didn't say God told anything, and that's exactly the point. How could people know what was the right thing to do?
    Anyways, I won't be able to convince you of anything, so I guess I should just let you have your opinion.

    I would just like to point out that I, and many atheists, don't 'believe there is no god.' This position is (almost) as indefensible as the belief that there is a god. I have no beliefs, positive or otherwise, in any deity. I simply see no credible evidence supporting the idea of a god, and in the absence of evidence I tend to stick with the null hypothesis, and live under the assumption (for the sake of simplicity) that there is no god just as I assume that other things for which there is no evidence do not exist. Should new evidence be presented, I would adjust my thinking to match.

    As for how it makes me feel or helps with my life, it does not. One has nothing to do with the other, kind of like your lack of belief in Thor does not affect these matters.

    Yeah, it's peculiar to me that people would think non-believing-in-God has some type of special effect in a person's life... it's not like we're lapsed believers / heretics, we just never saw the point in it, so there's nothing lost... I like the God literature though, the Revelations chapter is particularly awesome. I come as a thief indeed.

    Logic and reason arent exclusive to either atheism or theism, although the style of debate that moves so quickly to dispute doesnt get an airing so much. Cheers for posting, I did read the entire post BTW.
