Define ‘god’ please. Otherwise you’re just stringing words together into something that sounds like a real sentence but isn’t.

Who else could create god(s)? All gods are man made.

Those are just names. Define the thing those names refer to.

Each has its particular characteristics and respective definitions - for details see Bible, Mahabharata, Frazier, Koran, Greek mythology…...

Of course we do.  In fact we have created thousands of them.

They are figments of the imagination, whatever their names. It ‘s not up to those of us who reject the concept of god(s). It’s up to those making the claim that god(s) exist to define the thing those names belong to. Don’t ask people who reject them to define them. That would be ridiculous.

No, but most of the members are atheists. You’re welcome even if you aren’t one. We only ask that you be rational and understand the rules of critical thinking, including the burden of proof.

Asking if something supernatural created something natural is a mind boggling question to me.  The natural created the supernatural. Like the chicken and egg, it’s not a problem at all for people who understand species evolution.  It is a classic problem for creationists
We need to focus on what is good for the continued evolution of our species

Theists or atheists for that matter are irrelevant to the future of our species.

But critical thinkers are relevant.

Yes, of course critical thinking theists and atheists are legends in their own mind.

Dear Sr.Members,

Some of you seem to take more time to defend your positions than to respond to the original question.

P.S. I don´t think an atheist (which, by the way, i am) has to shun the subject “god”

Your original question doesn’t make sense, even though it seems to. Or better yet, I’ll answer your question once you answer mine: What color is love?

So are religious people who never had an independent thought in their lives.
