...try to prove that God is non-existence...Having proven this (the non existence of God), then it is impossible for God to abandon us
since abandonment requires WILL, or positive action. A being who is non exisntent cannot perform a willful act.. and hence, God cannot abandon us
Originally posted by freakster2k1 Bartolox. it is not a trick, but rather an accepted scientific method, to place the burden of proof to those who believe on non-existent things, such as a pink unicorn.
The burden to validate the existence of a pink unicorn is on the one who believe then rather than to those who doesnt believe them... since empirical data shows that pink unicorns dont exist.
And hence, the problem has been shifted because God doesnt exist and is not part of the physical world.
Or as the law of conservation of mass would say: If God is present in the physical universe, then he is also dependent on actions, and is merely a reaction... for sure, you wont want to 'place' such a limitation on GOd.
Abandonment is a positive action, that is I CHOOSE TO LEAVE. Positive action doesnt mean action that promotes happiness, but rather action that we choose, or atleast we think we chose (determinism).
therefore, if u abandon a cause; it means u gave up on it. u became a disbeliever of that cause. a belief is willful.
In conclusion, i was referring to the physical evidences of God's existence. that is how does he fit in the physical world, and on physical laws. Furthermore, since he cannot fit in it, the burden lies on the other side
Originally posted by Bartolox Exactly! Very Good. Just one correction, we cannot say pink unicorns are non-existent, we can only say it is unproven.
