I guess I will let the drop dead test occur on its own, however, I cannot see the reasoning behind accepting belief in a god as an axiom.
Axioms are used in geometry to explain gaps in formuli so that they will work out. When disscussing god, the entire assumption is an axiom, there is no gap to be filled, it is rather like the axiom is being strung together by parts of old stories that no one can agree on historically, and is questionable at best.
Questioning the existance of god is a very big job, especially since it resides in another realm and we only know about it from testimony and/or our own experiance. Even our own experiances can be reviewed with new information and satisfactorly
explained if there is a desire to verify them.
One other thing, if you really believe we have a handle on the complete history of the universe, and the big bang down pat, you might as well belive that we were created just as we are now.
