Burden of Proof

If someone announces to the world that we are all descended from giant purple space aliens without providing a lick of evidence to support this, we’d all think he’s crazy, right? It’s not up to the rest of us to go looking for these purple aliens. It’s up to the man who claimed it to show us the proof.

This is the introduction to a clear, concise argument about the existence of a god or gods. Does it prove there is no god? No. It does, however, demolish the most common arguments for the existence of god.

Happy reading!

If you choose to believe wholly in science and reason, and you study biology as I have done in search of some sort of answer to life, you eventually face the question, why?

What is it that makes a plant more than just a chemical reaction factory? affected by the chemical factories called stone and sun. affected by physical forces between particles so small that there's no seeing them. What makes life worth living if you don't believe in some spark in someone's heart? I'm not saying its supernatural. I'm saying its completely natural, even observable from a certain point of view.

Science is damn depressing if you look so close that the mystery disappears. But what I have found and what I have been told is that no matter how you look at it, there will be things you can't explain.

I think we have consensus on this one.
