Without any scientific proof, why do atheists say that God doesn’t exist? Are agnostics far more sensible than atheists because at least they don’t confirm the non-existence of God without any proof?

Most religious followers don’t have any proof God exist so this question makes absolutely no sense. God is anyone or anything a people worship, constantly praise and pray to. People will make anything become their God.We already know that. Atheist don’t pray, worship nor constantly praise such a God or Deity.

I am curious at how atheists define their principles and morals without a religious text? Wouldn’t it be difficult to convince someone why to embody such values (say a future offspring) when there’s no inherent reason to?

I am curious at how atheists define their principles and morals without a religious text? Wouldn’t it be difficult to convince someone why to embody such values (say a future offspring) when there’s no inherent reason to?Moral is about human beings, not about a god.

I think morals and ethics differ in people because its a way to determine a greater good over a lesser good and a greater evil over a lesser evil to determine right and wrong. I foolishly assumed you already knew this because you were an Adult.

How would I as an Atheist teach morals and principles without a religious text? It begins with an introduction to what many religious followers refer to as “man’s law” and what I refer to as a mortal human judicial system. This is a real reason why humans developed what we refer to as morals and ethics. Our judicial system often went against religious text because religious people knew their own religious text did not represent a greater good.

An example of this could be….I use a religious text to show how immoral and unethical religion would be and how we as society, subculture and culture made laws in opposition of religious text.An example of this could be in the Biblical text in reference to Abraham receiving a message to kill his son to show his obedience and faith in something he prayed to, constantly praised and worshiped Abraham alleged was the voice of God.

This killing was at a time, A lawful excuse to sacrifice animals and people as part of ones religion. No God outlawed this. Mortal human religious followers themselves outlawed this act and referred to the killing of ones offspring as well as the sacrifice of animals as a Satanic act no longer to be referred to as a Godly act. Mortal human judicial system was made by religious people as a way to oppose the religion. It still is.

Why do people worship different gods after very well knowing that there exists ONE ALMIGHTY God, who is the creator of us humans?

Pretending to be ignorant of the existence of many religions on earth may seem like a badge of honor to you as a way to support one particular dogma or canon. Personally, as an Atheist I find your ignorance pointless. Of course you and I know you are lying. You and I know everyone on earth does not very well know there is only one Almighty God. So why would you lie about it?

You would lie about it simply because you can. You may not really have a logical reason. You may not even care about a badge of honor in supporting one particular dogma or canon.

What are Atheists’ views on why some Christians are 100% convinced they’ve personally experienced their god?

The question asked What are Atheists’ views on why some Christians are 100% convinced they’ve personally experienced their God?

I have no earthly clue why so many Christians refuse to acknowledge that perhaps all religions on earth also believe in a deity or GOD and this includes Pagans and Devil worshipers. I find it extremely narrow minded and selfish that any person who professes to worship, pray to and constantly praise something and call that something a GOD conclude that only their own God is the only true and living God.

I concluded that all Gods are either real or fake because that’s the only alternatives. I did not conclude that one of all the religions is fake while all others are real. In fact I determined that God was anything or anyone a people worship, constantly praise and pray to. I knew that celebrities, sex, money and drugs were also determined as a God, supreme being and greater power over many peoples lives. Those thing were real. Yet I chose not to worship, pray to and constantly praise any one thing.

I say that no Christian will ever be 100% convinced of anything but this will not stop them from lying about it. I say that nearly everything about their religion is a lie and they continue with the lie on the premise that such a lie has become their religious “belief.” Almost all Christians will agree that every other religion on earth is a lie even Catholicism and Judaism from whence Christianity as Protestants derived. All religions disprove one another and somehow all religious followers selectively act as if they are unconscious of this.

How can atheists still have morals without any religious scripture to guide them?

The question asked How can atheists still have morals without any religious scripture to guide them?

First, you have to find out what morals are.

You still don’t have morals just because a religious scripture says anything or implies something. I have no idea why you would insist that you have any morals just because there are religious scriptures.That makes no sense whatsoever. All religions on earth may have religious scriptures and some religious people are terrorist with opposing morals and ethics. You act as if there is no such thing as opposing morals and ethics. You obviously know there are opposing morals and ethics don’t you?

We have what we determine as a greater good and a lesser good. We also have a greater evil over a lesser evil. Thou shalt not kill. There are self defense laws that enable people to kill others in order to defend oneself. Sometimes the word or term kill becomes manslaughter. There are other times the term or word kill becomes homicide. We created human Law and Order as a judicial system because of our morals and ethics. Our judicial system reflects our morals and ethics as a way to determine a greater good over a lesser good and a greater evil over a lesser evil.

People who profess to that solely their religious values determine morals and ethics are blatantly lying, which they say lying is always immoral and unethical. All or most of them follow Man’s law as a mortal human judicial system.

If it were up to religious scriptures all Abrahamic religious followers and leaders may have killed all of their own children on the premise that a God told Abraham to kill his own son. In the court of law known as a mortal human judicial system such a claim will get a religious follower a life sentence. It was Religious people who determined that it was a greater good to serve a life sentence for murdering ones child because it was not a greater good. They went against their own Biblical scriptures.They still do and somehow pretend to not be conscious of such an act.

Will you admit you are wrong when you see the clouds open, and Jesus and myriads of angels coming to slaughter you for claiming he and God do not exist?

For me GOD is anyone or anything a people worship, constantly praise and pray to. This could mean anything can become a deity or God.

I know that it is more likely that a majority of people will never admit that this view that the clouds will part and a man named Jesus will appear from the clouds with a bunch of superhuman immortals with wings is a very immoral and unethical view to uphold as a truth. They know it is a very dishonest and unrealistic view but somehow they profess themselves as the most moral and ethical people on earth by spreading this falsehood as a religious faith when its nothing more than a lie. Billions of people over a span of 400 or more years have died awaiting this occurrence.

There is no possible or probable way I could be wrong and yet there is every possibility and probability those who “Believe” this can be wrong. They’ve been proven wrong for 400 or more years and somehow refuse to admit it. They prove how dishonest they are.
