God Doesn't Exist

God Doesn't Exist
All believers just gotta BELIEVE.

It seems to come with the territory.
Robert G. Ingersoll : “No man with a sense of humor ever founded a religion.”

Nope... medical research does NOT show "something
is going on".  Quite the contrary in fact in the sense
you're debating NDEs.

Simply because "others" information(?) aligns with
your own opinions doesn't of course make your beliefs
about NDEs any more valid.  One has only to look at
a theist in order to see that a mass belief doesn't in any
way confirm the real world veracity of that belief.

Well, in the simplest of terms one is free, of course, to
believe whatever one wants.  But that doesn't necessarily
form a solid basis for the argument one is presenting.
From your comments here, I'd suggest you need to look
a bit more diligently at the "facts" Justin, rather than only
negatively critiquing others' opinions on the subject.

Uh... there's actually no need to tell us you're leaving Justin.
All you need to do is to simply stop posting.  Or is this just
a final dummy spit because you couldn't get your way here?

      Boohoo
I'm a creationist;   I believe that man created God.

Naturalism is the “hypothesis that the natural world is a closed system” in the sense that “nothing that is not a part of the natural world affects it.” As such, “naturalism implies that there are no supernatural entities,” such as gods, angels, demons, ghosts, or other spirits, “or at least none that actually exercises its power to affect the natural world.”

No. Naturalism is the *null* hypothesis.

Quote:Britannica: hypothesis, something supposed or taken for granted, with the object of following out its consequences (Greek hypothesis, “a putting under,” the Latin equivalent being suppositio).

Britannica is wrong. Science takes nothing for granted.

Quote:Regarding NDEs ... I've never had one, and the one OBE I had 50 years ago, I proved was a dream.

Then why the fuck bother typing that out?

Quote:Regarding this subject, I'm not even a medical expert, so, I have to stay out of it. There are tons of unverified NDE videos out there that never even prove they really happened. Yes, it's a screwed up subject, but what we do have from medical research shows something is going on.

No. Research shows that the world is full of cranks and nutters.

Quote:What I do have regarding the paranormal (and unfortunately cannot share because my phone was destroyed) aligns with the information others have, and as far as I'm concerned - it's real.

The dog ate my homework.

Quote:It's been interesting trying to have a conversation without the usual insults ... I'm officially leaving.

What a wuss. You're leaving because your new-age fantasies have been shown for what they are:

'Fantasies'.
