116. Logical error. If you could prove god exists, people would still have to chose to have faith or not

in that character of god. Faith as in a form of allegiance, or support, or worship, or trust, or a relationship.


I would, based on the current human understanding of the Abrahamic god, happily tell it to fuck off forever if it could be proven to exist. I'd have no faith in it. No allegiance to it. No trust in it. In fact, I'd do what I could to try and destroy it in self defense.

And you ought to know this quite well, since most religions, specifically including the Abrahamic ones, are rife with examples of god 'proving' itself to humans and 'showing itself' in various forms, and YET, even Moses had crisis of faith, having allegedly gazed upon its power and allegedly conversed with it, and in some cases, wielded its power.

Numbers 20:12 yo.

Faith and Proof are only decoupled in the minds of believers that know full well their imaginary friend can never be proven, period, end of story.
