IMBS: Do you really believe that god exists?
RI: Yes. How else can you explain the complexities of life, the morality of humans and the existence of matter/universe?
IMBS: Have you got any evidence to suggest that god created the complexities of life, the morality of humans and the existence of matter?
RI: Of course i do. The failure of science to explain those is evidence enough is it? How else can you explain all of these wonders in our world?
IMBS: You can't draw a conclusion from the lack of knowledge. Besides, evolution biology explains the complexities of life and the morality of humans very well and there are mountains of evidence to support those theories, also know as facts in layman's terms. While science currently as no answer yet on the existence of matter, it does not mean that god created matter.
RI: But as you have admitted that science cannot explain the existence of matter, this means that god is the far better explanation. Besides, you can't disprove the existence of god.
IMBS: Remember the time when people did not understand why the sun rose and set everyday? They said that the chariots of the sun god pulled the sun across the skies everyday. I can give you countless of examples of people invoking god's name to explain the unexplained and was subsequently proven to be wrong. As for the part which we cannot disprove the existence of god, it does not mean that god has anywhere near to a 50% chance of existing. You can't disprove that gravity will stop exerting a force that will keep you on the ground tomorrow, in principle. Does that mean you are going to tie you feet with a chain to the ground just in case it ceases to work tomorrow? It cannot be disproved that aliens with far superior technology than our's are currently circling Earth, using cloaking technology so that we cannot detect them, preparing to bomb the hell out of us. Are you going to start building bomb shelters to protect yourself from them?
RI: So what even if we are silly? We have the right to believe in what we want to. It causes no harm to others. You should respect our religion.
IMBS: That is not true. A children told stories about going to hell, suffering all the various forms of torture there, isn't that psychological abuse? Believers taking up arms in the name of god, killing one another, isn't that harm enough for you? How about sucide bombers who bomber others up while believing that by doing so he books a place in heaven for himself? Is it a right to commit such henious crimes against others? Should we respect this? Going by your logic we should also respect the right of a rapist or murder for it is their right to rape and murder.
RI: How could you blame religion for those crimes? Going by your logic, crimes commited by atheists such as Stalin ought to be prove that atheism fundamentalists are just as bad. The point is that fundamentalism leads to atrocities, not the religion.
IMBS: Atheists believe that god does not exists. It does not include beliefs such as killing the religious. On the contrary, some holy books exhort its believers to wipe out non-believers. Your Stalin analogy is flawed. Stalin just happened to be an atheist who kill many, if he really was an atheist. I can cherry-pick examples of black people commiting violent crime, but does that mean that just by being black, it makes u more likely to be a violent criminal? Sucicide bombers on the other hand justify their acts by thinking that they are acting on god's orders. When such a belief is so unshakable and strong, it takes away the normal human instinct to stay alive since they believe that they are going to a better world. The belief of the exisitence of god in this case is directly linked to their sucide bombing.
RI: Don't you know it's seditious to attack religion? I can have you thrown in prison for that!
