Science has not found any evidence that a god exists, but it also has not found any evidence that god doesn’t exist. Therefore, wouldn’t it be just as much of a leap of faith to assert that there is no god as it would be to assert that there is? Wouldn’t both claims be inconsistent with the scientific method? -Mikey from Connecticutt

While I understand that human beings use our planet’s resources to create all sorts of things…I have never seen a human being create an entire planet. So if you and I are WAY smarter than a rock, yet still lack the ability to create a planet…why do atheists and scientists believe that a rock has the ability to create a planet? -Lindsay from The Internet

My question is in reference to logic. In deductive arguments is [validity] the same as sound? I only ask because of the definition of [validity] confuses me: “the quality of being logically or factually sound; soundness or cogency.” -Mike from The Internet

Recently a Jehovah’s Witness approached me and said, “I’d like to prove that God isn’t responsible for catastrophes that people blame him for recently…” All I could think was “whoa, there’s so many assumptions in that sentence!” -Charles from Queensland

Why isn’t atheism, humanism, and skepticism the global default position? Why has the portion of the population that was persuaded to believe otherwise been humored, kind of like your slightly silly old uncle, who liked to wear his red clown nose in front of all your friends and embarrass you? How can any college educated person still believe in the god myth? -Bernie from The Internet

Why does it feel like atheists have to “prove” or justify our lack of belief rather than the onus being on those who believe in fairy tales to prove theirs?! -Jennie from The Internet

I want to know why atheists can be as stupid as the stupid they argue against. In my opinion, the questions we ask only reveal y’all have no idea what you’re arguing against. AND… as long as y’all think this is just indoctrination or ignorance, and ignore the possibility that people are wired for god-beliefs…. well, do the math. -Lucy from Colorado
