: The key word here is, I think, opinion. : There simply is no REASON to believe in a god.

I agree, there is no REASON to believe in a god. (REASON : something deductable by facts or other reasoning) Religion is not science. Allthough both describe and explain certain issues, science and relgion have both their own field of "expertise". And you CANNOT use religion to explain scientific facts, nor can you use science to explain (nor proove nor disproove) regliguous issues.

Since God is not a scientific object, you can not use scientific methods on him. Scince the Bible is not a scientific book, you cannot explain scientific issues from it (like how and when the universe came to existence).

The main problems in discussions between science and religion is that the statements above are ignored.
