From the Comments: Glenn Munro
In the last month or so an Australian faith head called Glenn Munro (seen here playing drums in a rather awful band) has obsessively trolled the comments telling anyone who’ll listen how bored he is of my blog, how much he can’t see the point of my writing against religion, and how he’s fed up of the colourful language I often employ. The obvious retort that springs to mind is ‘If you’re so disinterested why do you repeatedly return to express your disinterest?’
Glenn also likes to claim that I’ve not responded to ‘adult’ observations he believes he’s made, repeatedly claiming that I’ve ‘avoided’ the real issues when interacting with him, despite the fact that I’ve answered his only point several times (as he seems to be incapable of reading those replies I’ll paraphrase again here – the religious believe things that are actively harmful to themselves and their children and their fellow humans, and seek to impose the results of their beliefs any everyone else).
Today he’s back, commenting on my short piece about Eric Hovind selling lies to children – here’s what he has to say –
Pathetic!!!! Who knows how the grand canyon was formed for sure? Who was there to tell us? Nobody, that’s right.
Nothing to do with whether God exists or not.
This is a desperate attempt to use the words of a fool to prove there is no God.
Silly argument on all points.
Please , has anybody got any proof there is no God?
All I keep seeing is lame retorts to comments made about a belief.
You atheists must have some great proof that there is no God, otherwise there would be no point to this site.
So what is it?? What is the great proof there is no God???!!!
Dont expect anything intelligent from you Alex but surely there’s an athiest here that has the proof.
If so what is it????!!!!
Im all ears.
Setting aside the fact that an ancient Earth (for which the Grand Canyon is clear evidence), where evolution has taken place DIRECTLY contradicts the Biblical Creation account, and destroys the notion of Original Sin via proving that Adam and Eve never existed, I replied thus –
Glenn, as an atheist I hold the view that there is no evidence for the existence of any gods. As I hold a negative position the onus is upon you, the holder of the positive position, to provide evidence that supports your position.
If I came to you and said ‘Invisible lazer knights exist!’ then you would (rightly) ask me to prove it, and if I replied ‘Well, you can’t prove that they don’t, therefore they do…I WIN!!!! CHECK MATE INVISIBLE LAZER KNIGHTEIST!’ you would (also rightly) assume I was insane.
No-one can prove that gods don’t exist, just as no-one can prove the Invisible Lazer Knights don’t exist. The problem has arisen because the faithful insist that their gods DO exist, but have singularly failed to provide a single piece of convincing evidence to support their claims in the entire history of humankind.
So, Glenn, what evidence do you have that your version of your particular god exists, and that it is the ‘right’ one?
I’m looking forward to Glenn responding, perhaps he’ll be the first believer ever to produce positive evidence that his god exists?
