There is no proof possible. To have a proof we would all have to have a set of axioms that we agree on that are strong enough to deduct my conclusion. No such luck.

***What Harv is saying is that God exists only inside his mind. Which is the same thing you are saying! I couldn't agree more with both of you.***

A great deal is in my mind (including you, but I have good reason to think you are real). We must infer the existence of everything we experience directly, and we also infer the existence of things we don't experience direclty (e.g., everyone on this forum). This inference process is the core of philosophy (i.e., making correct inferences, considering how our inferences could be mistaken, etc).

The existence of God is no different. We must infer God's existence and determine whether we think there is reason to accept this belief as part of our philosophical beliefs of the world (as we do with many other philosophical beliefs).

Warm regards, Harv
