Subject: RE: No invisible means of support
I am always fascinated by people who escape some horrible disaster and then claim that "God was watching over me." If He was watching, why did the disaster happen in the first place? And why was he not also watching over the people who were killed or injured?
I am an atheist who is also fascinated by organized atheists who have set up a group of rules that exclude me. ESP, for example, does not exist in their creed. Experience it and you are out. I have experienced it and attribute it too to a set of chance circumstances that cause it to happen, not angels or demons or god. JA set creed of non-belief is just another form of controlling the masses, I think.
It is impossible to prove a negative. I won't try. So far, no one has been able to prove the existence of an all powerful deity to me. I will listen - skeptically.
