Oh, sweet Jesus. If someone is too stupid to see the problem with that comparison on his own, then he's too stupid to understand an explanation of that comparison's stupidity.

Fuckin' pointless.

the universe doesn't act as though it's intelligent and sentient, though.

We can't cut open with a circular saw and see God inside.

There is, in fact, a lot of proof for a brain and none for a god.

"Would u feel good to know that when you die nobody will care about you??"

My friends and family might give a shit, but I've always found honesty to be a lot better than false comfort.

"So if anyone can prove that there is no God..there are gonna have to go through some damn hard a*s walls to prove it..! :)"

I wasn't even thinking of that one xkcd strip when I read this as "damn hard ass-walls"

Um, anyway, asswalls aside, there is no evidence for god, so he is either nonexistent or totally irrelevant, and either way probably not your specific god.

Waiting for God

If cracking open this person's head, proven there was a God, how long would it take you to decide to do it?

I'm with twit on this one. Comments such as this erode my faith in mankind.

Here's an experiment you can perform that will allow you to determine whether or not you have a brain. Find the nearest buzz saw and an icepick and crack your skull open, about half an inch above your eyes. Remove the skullcap. Hold a hand mirror above your head and observe.

And yet it's just one of many things you fail so miserably.

I see no evidence that you have a brain, no.

"Would u feel good to know that when you die nobody will care about you?? "

reality remains unswayed by wishful thinking.

With this post, you have managed to prove you have no brain.

I can prove it, but I'm gonna need a gun...

Nonetheless, neurosurgeons seem to keep in business pretty well.

'Would u feel good to know that when you die nobody will care about you??'

If that is so, who's going to care about you when you die? You're either going to be roasting unloved in the firey pits, or just another soul in the eternal ass-kissing choir.

well...I've seen the human brain up close. So to answer your first question, yes.

I've had an MRI. Several, actually. It's a routine part of epilepsy tratment. I've even had brain surgery. Everything is there. Now, the BIG question is: can you prove YOU have a brain?

cool cats

This statement could be used to prove that fundies don't have brains.

I can get an MRI to prove I have a brain... that's a piss poor analogy.

No we have no way of doing scans of the brain, obviously you think a PET scan is something than you do at a vets.

Can anyone prove that you have a brain??

Sure, an autopsy or an MRI.

We dont see it, feel it,

Except in biology classes.

OR hear it..but we believe we all have brains..and we take great lengths to prove to people we have a brain..But why?

Medicine, psychology and psychiatry.

Same with this question..who is it gonna satisfy to know there is no God? Would u feel good to know that when you die nobody will care about you??
So if anyone can prove that there is no God..there are gonna have to go through some damn hard a*s walls to prove it..! :)

Dear FSM! There's so much FAIL!!

This is not a proof but...

If there was a god, it would be obvious. Even a blind man knows there is a sun.

"...who is it gonna satisfy to know there is no God? Would u feel good to know that when you die nobody will care about you??"

1. Excuse me, but I think that virtually everyone will be missed by someone when he or she dies, someone who cares -- someone REAL.

2. This really irks the heck out of me, this notion that what "feels good" is more important than what's actually true -- and, further, the implication that someone who does deal in reality cannot possibly be happy with just that. The suggestion that you have to choose between being happy and being right is a false dichotomy -- and an insulting one.
