Is it possible for a believer to agree to either of those statements?
It's probably unlikely in the catagoric sense, but following on from what some have posted here I'd have to say that I don't believe in any of the God(s) that are generally presented. It's a little bit like hearing two thousand biographies of someone (and why don't we throw in an autobiography, for good measure). You still don't know that person unless you've actually met them, IMHO.
Your comment was delicious!
You, my friend, are a wag of the highest order! You made me laugh with each one of your posts on this thread
I will pay the first person who provides me with irrefutable evidence of the existence of God or an afterlife $20,000 via bankers draft.
Are you up to earning a few bob Little Toe?
Now the first difficulty with this is that I'd actually have to precede you in death. I'd quite happily give you a tap on the shoulder, but by that point the money would be much use to me, being incorporeal and all...
...I tell ya what, if it works out that way, just give the money to some worthwhile charity
But in all honesty, no, I can't give you the evidence that you seek. Nor would "I" have accepted anyone else's evidence.
I should also throw into the ring the fact that I genuinely would just love to have everything in life explained away scientifically. Life might lose a little of it's mystery, in the process, but I like objective answers as much as the next person.
