Man And God, Who Really Made Who?

Of many things that happened in the year 2009, this advert on buses across the UK was one of my favourites. There are quite a lot character surrounding it but those who countered it made fools of themselves even from the perspective of their own God.

Not just by confirming that their belief has stolen their senses as their bible says in Jeremiah Chapter 5 verse 21 "Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not" (King James Version) and in the following references: Isaiah Ch. 6 vs 9;
Ch. 43 vs 8; Ezekiel Ch. 12 vs 2; And Jesus confirming in the following with same word: Matthew Ch. 13 vs 14; Mark Ch. 8 vs 18; John Ch. 12 vs 40. And then followed (the rebellious, zealous and fanatical) Apostle Paul in Romans 11 vs 8 and finally by Luke in his Acts of the Apostles Ch. 28 vs 26.

Now why I referred you to these quotations is to draw your attention to the sentence of the Advert: "There's PROBABLY no God..." That sentence is full of respect, tolerance, understanding and concern for the view and emotions of these psychologically, philosophically and spiritually blind religious people. The sentence does not even incite a debate, let alone a quarrel. But the idiots went on rambling just because like said above, they "WILL KEEP ON HEARING, BUT WILL NOT UNDERSTAND" (Matthew 13 vs 14) the simple difference between "There's PROBABLY no God" and There's no God".

All in all, the sentence "There's no God" means same as "There's God". It's your word against mine. Both sentences equal each other. Their truth is valid although the former makes more sense and is easier to prove. This leads me to say that, in the actual sense, it is Man that MADE God, instead of what we are being pushed to believe.

Well, I understand where you are coming from. "There is no God" and "There's God" are both statements of faith. The statement "psychologically, philosophically and spiritually blind religious people" is self contradictory whatever belief one holds."There's no God" and "There's God" are both religious statements.whatever stance one takes is a psychological, philosophical and spiritual decision."There's PROBABLY no God" is a statement of doubt and because there are arguments for God and vice versa it automatically incites debate however much "respect, tolerance, understanding and concern " it might have.

1. Well, spiritually blind people exist and nothing near self-contradictory becuase it simply means those who do not see others spiritually but are stuck on theirs.

2. There's no God isnt religious statements... unless that person worships something else.

3. And your last point is right which is what the statement should do; incite debate. And this is why point 1 above is right because those practicing it do not see the 'respect' in that 'doubt' (as you label it) sentence. However, it would be doubt if it was not being respectful to those who think otherwise.
