: Can anyone prove that there is ,no God?I can not prove,in a scientific way,the existance of God,but if I were a gambling man,I would put my money on God.Atheists can argue,but they, also have no proof.The end will come.How Much,would you be willing to bet?

***I am already betting my future life! For I reject the notion that there is A God, and so in christain belief, I've placed my bet. As far as proving that god does not exist, again refering to the specific religion, during a period of time in my life, I believed more than most preachers, I studied the living text not just to comprehend, but to find. After all, it says seek and you shall find, and I found it, with eyes closed on the mountain tops I felt the presence of this being that knew me, it was a wonderful experiance, the most spiritual I have ever encountered, and as long as I kept me eyes closed, there it was. But upon opening them, I was alone, and the trees swayed in the wind, I felt the cold snow beneath my feet. After many of these encounters, I began to realize that during these periods nothing changed other than a sense of totally experiancing my own intelligent presence. I was distraught as you can imagine, for this concept was a blasphamy to all I believed in. However, over time I began to seek other explainations for why god did not reveal itself when sought genuinly, and this eventually lead to a transition from belief to non-belief. Even this transition pushed me further from the belief in god, for as I began to question its existance inocently and expressively, those I had known began to apply subtle social pressures in hopes that I would submit to the will of the mass. But I had been so much farther in my development of my belief that they could produce no arguement against my questioning, and eventually reverted to threats of hell, and then subtle ways of expressing thier condemnation as a threat. This lead to out and out rejection of me as a person, rumors that I was a satan worshipper and dissasosiation by the majority of those I once had very close and meaningful relationships with. These pressures effected me drastically, and although severely depressed at the loss of those I loved, I held truth above all things, and saw how one can be fooled into the concept of unconditional love, especially by those who proclaim it the most. Thus, the final thrust to my total non-belief was boosted by the workings of belief itself. I can truely say that I sought and found (reality). And that reality is that each human being is its own god, the three omni's are power over ones self, present within ones self, and if sought to the extreames, knowledge of ones self. And no other god (man) can ever remove these characteristics from a god. I wonder if this is the way that those who proclaimed inner knowledge in far past days thought, tried to teach, and had thier words diefied and manipulated after thier demise. For all gods die, we all will someday.
