Q: Is there any verifiable evidence of any god(s)? Any at all?
A: Nope, none at all.
Of course there is!

Millions of people believe in him. Many devote their lives to him. Some have even died for him. He is in them! How can you possibly say he does not exist?

Now, of course, if he is not in you, if you don't believe in him, then for you he can't exist. What you seek is a material being. What evidence do you have that he can only take the form?

Although no one said he didn’t exist. They asked if there was any
verifiable evidence; and your idea of belief being evidence does not prove
anything except you lie even more than you accuse me of doing.
Now, of course, if he is not in you, if you don't believe in him, then for
you he can't exist. What you seek is a material being. What evidence do you
have that he can only take the form?
The same evidence that we have for him not to exist in any form - none.

You seem to be placing your god on the same level as leprechauns.

Which presupposes that to qualify as proof or evidence then evidence has to have material nature and is denied abstract form. Possess the quality of reality. But abstract forms can have reality. A mathematical concept for instance.

The people I have described possess faith. Faith is real. It steers people in particular ways. The Good Book has it sussed:

"Except ye be converted, and become as little children, [have total trust in faith] ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."

Matthew 18:3

It takes some chewing over but:

Religion is faith without it there can be no religion or belief and hence no God. Rationality has nothing to do with religion. You are operating at another level or in a a different dimension

You can't respectably prove a negative for a start.

And in a sense he is. There used to be belief in fairies/good spirits/ evil spirits. So long as that belief persisted they existed in reality or consciousness. Materially of course, they didn't.

That's where 'believers' come unstuck, and where agnostics - like me -
hold the only realistic view. I don't know if god exists, and neither do
they, the difference is that I don't know and admit it, but they claim
that they do - which they don't, they only think they do.

No.
There used to be belief in fairies/good spirits/ evil
spirits.
Yes, “used to be”. In other words as humans became more intelligent they
began to discover why things (originally attributable to spirits) happened.

Maybe one day, humans will discover how to create a single cell reproducible
life-form from a soup of organic chemicals?

Where will religious texts stand then?

no 'they' didn't...'they' just made up ever more complex reasons

because of 'god' becomes because of 'gravity'
'the creation' become 'the big bang'....

I can certainly verify that millions believe in him, via surveys and

and that many "devote their lives to him", even that some have died. But
how do I verify "he is in them"? What does that mean?

Now, of course, if he is not in you, if you don't believe in him, then for you he can't exist. What you seek is a material being. What evidence do you have that he can only take the form?
If he is an immaterial being, how does one detect his existence?

He might have existed of course. An alien spacecraft happened upon a blue
planet 2000 years ago, only to discover the inhabitants were unbelievably
backward.

So, they parked well above the atmosphere and teleported one of their leaders
here in order to turn him into a deity.

It doesn’t take much really. A few “miracles” and the undermining of a
disliked autocratic government regime were really all they needed.

Give the locals an easy to remember history lesson, and then “death” in a
cruel and painful ordeal seals the deal, after which the instant folk hero
can be teleported back down again just to wow the gullible; before the craft
and its crew bugger off (promising to come back some day) never to be seen
again.

I had one of those in the Yorkshire Dales in 1969. It was the result of a
tab of very strong LSD one summer afternoon.

It made me wonder if The Bard had been on it when he said something about
Horatio's philosophy and what might be in Heaven and Earth.

Only stuff in the universe subject to the laws of physics can be proven
to exist. Since God is the creator of the universe and external to it
Gods existence cannot be proven by means which are applicable to the
universe and the stuff in it.

The above limitation is also why science cannot say anything about why
stuff exists and how it came into existence.

Much can be said about black holes, they are objects with an event
horizon, so far are the laws of physics applicable. The laws of physics
break down at the singularity.

Then god doesn't exist at all, for existence is predicated

The description of this universe is predicated on what is in it. The
description of this universe has nothing to say about why it suddenly
popped into existence and from what. The description of this universe has
nothing at all to say about what might lie outside its boundaries.

Then god doesn't exist at all, for existence is predicated
upon "in" the universe.
The description of this universe is predicated on what is in it. The
description of this universe has nothing to say about why
There is no why.

it suddenly
popped into existence
It has necessarily always existed.

and from what. The description of this universe has
nothing at all to say about what might lie outside its boundaries.
Nothing can.

No, a black hole is an object with an event horizon that exists in the
universe.
Your supposed god doesn't.

Unless, of course, you'd like to describe existence apart from
the universe. You'd be the first person in the history of history to
do so.
No one can truly understand existence without understanding truth first.
The physical existence is just a perception of the human mind.

Well that rules out black holes for starters.
Much can be said about black holes, they are objects with an event
horizon, so far are the laws of physics applicable. The laws of physics
break down at the singularity.

existence around 14 billion years ago.
Those models were based on red shift data from many years ago. They just
extrapolated the data backwards and came to a point (as people tend to do in
those situations).

However, the theory assumes that the rate of movement away from our point of
reference was constant. This has been proved not to be the case. The distant
galaxies are accelerating away from us, and their acceleration rate appears
to be increasing.

If you extrapolate that backwards using the same principles, they would
decelerate - and if you went back far enough they should become stationary,
but not disappear altogether.

However, that would blow the current physics out of the water, until we
discover what exactly is making them accelerate.

What about Dark Energy? or Goblins? or maybe something outside the
present remit of physics that is so incredibly amazing it puts current
physics practically on the level of the Voodoo nonsense somebody kindly
posted a while ago. Maybe these militant atheists should be a bit more
careful about their claims ("claim" being somewhat of an infected word

LOL indeed!

When one applies rules of logic/physics etc. one moves outside the domain of religion and theology. We have an unwarranted assumption regarding the universal applicability of these rules.

We know they apply within the known universe other wise we could never make sense of it. How about beyond it?

LOL indeed!
When one applies rules of logic/physics etc. one moves outside the domain of religion and theology. We have an unwarranted assumption regarding the universal applicability of these rules.
We know they apply within the known universe other wise we could never make sense of it. How about beyond it?
one cannot even forecast the result of the 3 o'clock....

that is(will be) in the realm of 'reality'...

if you want to get difficult, there are idiots 'forecasting' the
outcomes of brexit...a thing they cannot do...

the 'rules' of physics/logic are extremely limited and often
empirically unsound...

thus your reply is confusing me :-)

All rules are limited to the parameters in which they operate.

Einstein showed Newtons Laws to be wanting. Nevertheless they were adequate to put satellites in orbit, to put a man on the moon, place a rover on Mars and so on. That is because these 'inadequacies' are insignificant at the low velocities relative to objects with a velocity expressed in terms of the speed of light.

Exploring the limits of knowledge is interesting and engaging
materialists and atheists is particularly interesting. It's fun giving
them a tough time. Much can be learned.

I liked the guy who brought up black holes as evidence that things beyond
the laws of physics can be proven to exist. Clever, an interesting line
of thought lies in that direction.

It's not possible to know what's beyond the universe. In fact there is
nothing beyond the universe. However, the universe only exists in the
human mind. So it's quite possible to know what's beyond the human mind
instead. All it takes is a simple reflection or a sudden realization.

Then you don't know very much!

The known universe is limited in size by time. It has to be if you think about it.

According to the cosmologists it began with the big bang which happened in the shortest instant. The echoes of this event are being picked up by radio telescopes as we speak. Since that instant the universe has expanded at the speed of light. This expansion can itself be observed via what is known as the Doppler effect in the light of distant stars and galaxies.

Big bang was the time when all matters was created. How we know not. It was also when time (a human perception) began. Indeed some scientist prefer to call big bang the t=0 moment.

We are therefore led towards a model of the universe that resembles and inflating party balloon. at the very skin of this balloon (the edge of 'our' universe) t is always equal to 0 an awesome realisation.

The bogey is that we can never reach the very edge of space since c = the speed/velocity of light sets a physical limit on how fast anything may travel (in our universe) That means that the edge of our universe is moving away from us at the same speed as we can only conceive we could attain.

For similar reasons, we cannot look beyond this edge.

This leaves room for speculation as to what lies beyond t=0 and what natural laws might apply there. The most attractive answer to this puzzle is not simply a another universe but an infinite number of them all behaving in the same or similar waysuggesting the concept of a multiverse.

Using 'earth logic' if you want to believe in God and heaven then there is plenty of room beyond the yonder for both.

The universe is what's in your mind. What's beyond the universe is
what's beyond your mind. You can't find what's beyond the universe by
looking into the universe, but you can find what's beyond your mind by
looking within yourself.

There are a lot of things you can find beyond your intellectual mind.

The evidence is the human mind. The universe is nothing but a reflection

same as anything beyond the human mind. We can't look beyond the
universe, but we can always reflect on our human mind to realize what's

No evidence within the universe as described by the laws of physics
exists.

But the universe exists and conscious beings within that universe exist
and science cannot say a thing about those amazing facts beyond a few
descriptions of how they work. Perhaps they are the most relevant and
fundamental facts of all but science is completely at a loss to explain
them. Quite a limitation of science, but my position all along has been
concerned with the limited remit of science.

Science has very good mechanisms for verifying, but so far no evidence of

actually existing, that is, which is something quite amazing and

It is quite reasonable to accept that a mendicant preacher called Jesus
of Nazareth existed and wandered about the Middle East doing assorted
magic tricks until he ended up getting nailed to a lump of wood. Making
claims he was some sort of "God" is going a bit over the top. I don't
doubt his magic tricks were quite good, but claiming he was a God is
rather ridiculous and unsupportable.

Science has it all pretty well explained.
There are still a few small gaps for your god to hide in, though.

I accept neither of those premises because there is no evidence,
outside of the story, that he ever existed.

The observed mass of the universe is much less than what observed gravity would
require. 90% missing? I'm not sure.

And dark matter is just a guess to make up the mass deficit. Nobody has observed
dark matter. It's currently a kludge to rescue the theories. If you don't know
that much, you aren't worth reading.

That's a statement of faith. The facts are we cannot currently see anything

a few claim CBR has a bruise from bumping against another universe beyond those
are still just guesses.

I was bummed out when I heard the inflationary hypothesis. 'Oh, well the
cosmological constant changed.' I don't know if they have since come up with
mechanism that would make the constant variable, but to start with just changing
numbers sounds like fudging the results just because you believe in the current
theory.

The above limitation is also why science cannot say anything about why

Or perhaps God is the universe and the whole thing is self-creating. Either

That is coming close to the way things probably are. Although that which
is described by present physics as the universe is only a limited working
model of whatever it is that we are a part of. Some call it God, which
seems to be reasonable enough, although the 'God' word has an awful lot
