    I think he means Exist.. or perhaps Excite? Execute? Excerpt? excise? Exciton? exclave? excoginate (which I do plenty of!)? excoriate? exculpate? excursive?

    How about "Does God Exasperate?"
    or this one "Does God Exacerbate?"
    or this one "Does Tony1 Exaggerate?"

    Originally I was going to tell Kmguru off for being cheeky... but I can't, because I was far cheekier.... so I'm going to scold myself now and then send myself to my room to think about it.

    Here is the question. If you ask God to give you one million dollars in cash, right there in a brown paper bag:

    Can He?
    Will it be counterfeit?
    Will the serial number all be the same?
    If, not, what serial number He will use?
    What will be the molecular composition of those notes?
    Will those notes be legal?

    I'm not arguing any existence here, but this is an interesting way of putting forth that question:

    Have you ever seen a billion dollars?

    But you know it exists, right?

    I've never seen one billion dollars close up (maybe on TV?)

    But other people have so we trust other people that if they've seen it, it exists. that is, we have to make sure they're not lying, or hallucinating. But most people survive that test.

    If you have one dollar, how illogical is it to have 999,999,999 more?

    If you have a world that never shows any evidence of something 'Godly' (it can't right?), you have a world with at least one person.

    Then it isn't illogical to say there are 999,999,999 more people.

    There is not one part of God we can measure so how can we assume there is one whole God?

    Would that be an English Billion or American Billon?

    If so I've see 50 Billon in Bonds, of course it was only a print and I can't tell you who's they were.

    We know some things are real because we can make a distinction between what we know and what we imagine, just as you have. Justifying Atheism doesn't have to mean questioning everything.

    I think the billion dollars is American, for obivous reasons. Why settle for second best? lol

    Is that just one God or a group of Gods? If one exists then there must be others, one for each galaxy. Several billions of them...logically speaking ofcourse....

    It may be more in the true spirit of SCIFORUMS to not outline the educational disparities of those who submit their opinions. Instead we should try to encourage people to submit their opinions and try to create an atmoshphere in which people can learn without being threatened by ridicule from those who are in a posistion to enlighten. I am learning too. Whether one chooses to learn is entirely up to them.

    The existence of UFO/aliens will have a much much higher chance than the existence of god(s).

    machaon,

    If you read my first post, you should notice that the paragraph at it's end was so that people should know to take it light heartedly not be dragged down by woe and scorn.

    I understand you don't like the nature of someone being negative towards someone, but I wasn't doing so to annoy or put to Shame Toms spelling (as we all spell things wrong at some point.) I did it to try and lessen the seemingly cheeky response of Kmguru to that first post as I know he too meant it light heartedly.

    So stop being such a stick in the mud.

    Kmguru,
    I once had this really fudged metaphysical, electing a god for each parallel a person creates, you could have everyone on this planet being a deity on at least one world

    Hindus had 330 million Gods when I think the world population was 330 million. So then beat me by a few thousand years.

    Fair enough. I will try to be more perceptive in the future.

    So what if a God from another dimension wages war on the God of our dimension, and ports his minions over... or is that what God and Satan are, anyway?
