I know that but never really got that, as God has a name, whether it be Yahweh or Jehovah or from another language. I used to get spanked for oh my gosh. Isn't God more like a title or description?

I thought 'gosh' had no definition. Plus, 'Jehovah', in my opinion, should be pronounced like 'Yahweh' as Middle East to European languages developed more and more letters as time went by. Take Latin for example. Latin used 'V' to make a 'U' or 'W' (double-u) while it used 'I' to make a 'J' or 'Y' sound. That's why you still hear the word 'ja' as in 'you' and 'vat' as in 'what'.

'Gosh' can also mean 'surprise' (I looked it up).
I'm not a Canadian or a US citizen, so 'gosh' doesn't necessarily mean 'a milder (euphemistic) way of saying 'God' to me.

Well, they shouldn't use that phrase. Some still do. I get your point though.

Science isn't a useful tool to Satanists (Satanist: a person who admires Satan and/or sees him as an inspiration) because it can't keep them out of Hell. Whatever they do with science doesn't make much difference to their eternal well-being.

Nope. Satanism is a self worshipping religion. Similar to atheism... but not the same. We see our selves and fellow humans as gods.

I must respectfully disagree. No one can tell anyone else what they believe or why. It would be like me telling you how and why you came to be a Christian. No one can speak for anyone else. If you would like me to explain how I became an atheist I would be happy to tell you :)

This isn't even debatable. The rule "No one can tell anyone else what they believe or why" doesn't apply here, since the real question is not your beliefs, but reason and science, and those are everyone's domain.

There is no reason and science that proves that God doesn't exist, so what you've described in your comment isn't even logically possible. It's an incoherent claim, like someone claiming to have seen a triangle with four sides.

If you think you came to the conclusion that God doesn't exist by reason and science, you're simply wrong about that. You need to change your mind about it and not make that claim in the future.

Science can't prove that God doesn't exist, I agree. However, it is possible, through reason and logic, for someone to come to the conclusion that God does not exist. Theists make the claim that God exists. I don't believe the evidence supports their claim, or any of their common arguments for his existence. I'm not saying I don't believe in God without reason. I'm saying I don't believe in God because I don't believe the evidence points to that being the case.

He's just saying that we're being dishonest by saying that without backing himself up. Another argument of his is that deep down we know that God is real. He can't say any of that because he's never been an atheist.

That's a common argument used by Ray Comfort as well, that there are no "real" atheists. It's frustrating when someone says that, because they are pretty much calling you a liar.

The God of the Bible has attributes which I do not believe correspond with the reality I see all around me, so my logical conclusion is that he doesn't exist.

All atheists that I know concluded that God doesn't exist because of reason and/or science. Scratch that, nobody can conclude anything. Nobody can prove anything, so we all just use reason. Unless you were born before 1970, in that case, WTF IS REASON?!?!
reply

No, they didn't. They might have said so to you, but you have no grounds to believe such a claim.

There is no line of reasoning that proves that God does not exist, and there's no scientific evidence that establishes that God doesn't exist either.
reply

You speak to atheists about their beliefs way less than I do, I know for a fact that's what they believe. There may be no evidence or proof that anything doesn't exist, but there is logic and reasoning (which link to science a lot of the time) and you must admit there is no proof or evidence of a God either. The Bible was written by dozens of people over the course of 1,500 years, so that cannot be used as evidence. Theists and atheists are equally matched. No one can prove or disprove one another. It's down to logic, and even if one were to win an argument with logic it still wouldn't prove or disprove a God, so this is pretty much pointless. But thanks, your influence has changed my thinking.

You can't have it both ways. Your comment above shows that you know that your atheist friends are dishonest about the motives for their belief. You said, "there may be no evidence or proof that anything doesn't exist." In the case of God, this is a true statement. By acknowledging that, you've acknowledged that there's no possibility of reason or science that could disprove God's existence.

That's why I said that nobody comes to the conclusion that God doesn't exist based on reason or science.

It is often their argument all the same. After reading comments, memes etc on this subject for several months,.. it seems some that claim to be an "atheist", often have different interpretations of that, almost like Christians disagreeing on salvation. Some who claim to be an atheist, often make comments that lean more toward just being agnostic. There are those who politely disagree with a Creator, and some almost attack Christians for their beliefs. The subject always generates comments. I'm just not a fan of the anti-God comments that cherry pick bible verses in an effort to discredit Gods love, plans, or knowledge.

Nope - science's role in atheism isn't that of God in theism but I doubt you were under that impression. ;) I'm going to start using "Oh my Nietzsche" now though, in an ironic vein. :P

That's clever. In a similar vein, I've always wondered how Satanists function. I mean, if you believe in Satan, then you have to believe in God. Why would you follow the bad one?

I'm a strange person because I think that "Oh my God" is a worse thing to say than "What the F***". This is because as the F-Bomb is a word created and bastardized by Humanity with no real reason, cussing out God is probably a worse offense than saying a word created by Humanity with the purpose of being a curse.

That is what they tell you in bible college too. Flux is a man made word. It is only thought of as bad by man. Any word to call upon God or gain control of God is bad. Asking God tot dang someone or something is taking his name in vein.

Thanks for that bit of scripture. Just to clarify, I don't use the expression "Oh my god" because my parents very sternly taught me not to. I don't know if atheist parents teach their children the same thing, lol.
