God is most likely not real and we should live our lives as if he does not exist
Debate Rounds (3)
Why blindly obey rules out of a book that has so many fallacies and mistakes with eternal punishment as a result of not obeying these rules.
Its time to get rid of this silly belief, science is slowly uncovering more and more EMPIRICAL evidence that is making Gods existence less likely.
You also state that we should not, "be limited by the restrictions Christianity brings into our lives." Christianity is a choice. You, along with everyone else, has the choice to live the morals expected by these churches. No person is forcing you to live this way. Saying that "we" should live as if there is no God would be like a vegan telling me I couldn't eat bacon because he didn't believe it was right. It doesn't make sense and is downright stupid for them to say that. Anybody should have the right to believe in God, and it can't be taken away based on the claim that believing a God is silly.
And another thing, you state more than once that the evidence against God is empirical, and you even put emphasis on the word. The definition of empirical is originating in or based on observation or experience (From Merriam-Webster.com). No person has empirical evidence that God is not real, because one cannot "observe" or tell from experience that God does not exist. Rather, they would have to have solid facts that denote there is no God.
I am aware that we have the choice to abide by these morals but even if we do not live by these restrictions or morals they still affect us. Christianity is rife in government and impacts many decisions which ultimately affect us. Of course anybody has this right but when it starts to encroach on non-believers or believers something different it is not fair in anyway.
The world would be a better place without Christianity, there are many secular charities and humans have their own morals they do not need to abide by what is said in a book. We have developed them over time they always existed so believing in a God that kills 2000 children each day in Africa just because and never mind the vast wars and crusades Christians have been involved in plus the discrimination towards the LGBT community and other issues as such.
The thing is there is empirical evidence that shows God is 'most likely' not real never did I say that empirical evidence proves God is not real, rather it strongly suggests he is not. Lets all take a minute and 'observe' God lets see him lets use experiments to gain understanding oh wait we cannot but of course we cant prove if he is real or not but we can't actually get evidence to say he is definitely not real which just brings us to a stale mate due to the horrific delusional grip Christianity has on many that faith and belief is proof. I live as if there is no God but i do not claim there is no God if someone was to give me empirical evidence in which i could OBSERVE i would believe but still not follow or become a Christian.
