Humans are so stupid. If God exists, then there would be a constant supply of Sheba. There isn't, so God doesn't exist. Stop arguing and get off the instapox.

The quicker we can get rid of all religion and educate people in science and facts, the quicker the world will become a more bearable place to live in.

Your view is the minority. There are more religious people in the world than there are atheists.

So?! for a long time, most people believed that the world was flat. There's a lot of badly educated people in the world.

Well, according to the latest poll released last week of 64,000 people around the world results show that:

Sweden - 16% religious
Netherlands - 26% religious
China - 7% religious
Japan - 13% religious

On average, 56% said they were not religious.

America is also at 56% (saying they are religious) and falling rapidly. The world is waking up. When will you? Your faith comes from your upbringing, not your education. Spend some time researching and come back to me.

That may have been so in 2012, but what a decline to 63% in 2015.

Going in the right direction I say. As new technology spreads access to the internet and more information about science becomes available, this number will fall even further. Your global percentage includes places like Pakistan, Syria, Dubai etc. where faith is significantly higher. Hugely biased opinion from countries with severe punishments for lack of faith. Better to look at individual countries for a more accurate figure.

Faith they may have, but probably not in your God. I would suggest that the majority are followers of another religion that isn't classified as 'christian'.

Having more than one god is not inconsistent with tradition. Even the Jewish and Christian God admits there are more than one. "Do not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God. "

The first scripture says, "In the beginning Gods created the heavens and the earth." Your English translation may say "God" instead of "Gods" and that is a translation error. The word comes from the hebrew word " 'elohiym" which is clearly plural version of Gods.

This may come across as rude, which is exactly how I intend it to be, but if your bible has a mistranslation on the first god damn page, aren't you at least a LITTLE bit suspicious that there may be another one or two in there?! I just don't get it, my mind is entirely incapable of understanding this nonsense.

There are no translation errors if you use the original scriptures. Men are the ones that translated it incorrectly. They came upon words that they felt didn't make sense and fudged it to fit in with their view of having only one God. They were wrong and translated it incorrectly. I think there may be one exception and that is with the number of stalls that solomon had and it's probably a copying error and not a translation one. Either he had 4,000 or 40,000 stalls depending on which verse you read.

John 1:1, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." The word "Word" is referring to Jesus and then means that Jesus is a God too and this all occurs before Jesus was born from a young woman. How many other Gods were there at that time is unknown.

One thing I think is awkward is how some Christians have images/statues of Mary or Jesus and people pray to them. 1st of 10 commandments is, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me." You should not be praying to anyone other than Elohim. 2nd, "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image." Having those statues breaks the 2nd commandment.

Your bible is a copy of a translation of a translation of a story told from one person to another over generations, because at the time of the events that are supposed as truth by so many, hardly anyone could read or write. So the things taken as literal gospel are, in fact, the product of being handed down verbally until somebody thought they would put them into writing. They were probably embellished a little by the story tellers (you get a better, more appreciative audience that way) with each new recital and are almost certainly the result of the 'Chinese Whispers' effect as a result.

Please don't insult our intelligence by trying to tell anyone with half a brain that what is contained in the bible is ' the word of God' - it isn't, it's the word of man trying to scare his fellows.

Oh, and let's not forget the parts that were left out by the Catholic church who are supposed to have the most comprehensive copy of the original scriptures under lock and key. They only disseminated the bits that would give them the most power over the faithful, and that's what is now accepted as the modern bible.

"Oh, and let's not forget the parts that were left out by the Catholic church..." You are referring to the canon. Different religions have selected different scriptures to include in their canon. Many of the religions have the same scriptures. For example, the Jewish people use the Tanakh which contains 24 books compiled into their canon. The first 5 of those books is called the Torah and are common in the Jewish and Christian religions.

The Catholic canon has 73 books but a Protestant canon contains 76 books. Others only contain 66 books. Even the Qur'an has 50 people in common with the Bible in many of the same stories.

Some of the religions select particular scriptures that they believe are supposed to be in their canon. The Catholics have 7 tests a scripture must pass to be included. I cannot remember all those steps because I was tought those so long ago. The dead sea scrolls, as an example, cannot be included because it fails the tests.

No problem. I can make up some more for you, just like the prior ones were made up. Go forth, and rotate thy tires, for this is pleasing to thy father in heaven. Woe be unto them with uneven tire wear. Sleep not with the fattest of them left at the bar, for regret surely dwells there, and there will indeed be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Do not soil thyself by eating mayonaisse filled items left out in the sun on that little card table around the side of the garden by thy foolhardy uncle, for such is an unclean abomination, and your lunch will be upon you, and upon your shoes.

So I have to learn Hebrew to get the good stuff? That's fair enough, but Christians around the world are reading mistranslated material in that case. Not good people!

Some scriptures were written in Hebrew and some in Aramaic (used by Arabic, Ethiopic, Babylonian, and Assyrian).

You do not need to know Hebrew to get the good stuff. You just need to go to Bible study and learn what the scriptures mean instead of just reading them at face value. People have spend many hours analyzing each scripture word by word. These people share their learnings with the community so everyone can understand. So when it was discovered there was a translation error in the first scripture, that because widly known and anyone that studied the Bible should already be aware of that one. It's very basic knowledge.

It's not so much arguments against the existence of god(s) as the lack of any convincing evidence for the existence of god(s). People have been over this ground for so long that failing to produce the goods is significant, and all the excuses (eg "God wants us to have faith") just ring hollow.

Where are the arguments against the existence of God? There are plenty of puns and some arguments against various christian denominations, but not against the existence of God.

It's pretty annoying that self-acclaimed exponents of science on the internet (almost) always stop rational thinking once they stab at religion, and then celebrate each other for cheap puns or arguments that have been countered more than 150 years ago?

Can finally somebody in here start reading Feuerbach?

The existence or non-existence of (a) god can't be proven, as (our) god is allmighty (by definition). So if one believes, that a god doesn`t exist, he just believes this, as a person can believe in the existence of a god. Nothing more, nothing less.

So given the insight, that it can't be proven (neither the existence, nor the non-exixtence of god), I either believe the one or the other, or I accept the fact, that both is not the right way.

The probability, that a god exists is highly improbable, but I can't rule it out. But I don't care, as it doesn't matter. So I'm an Agnostic, because theist and atheist are basically the same.
