I have good reason to believe this is true.
Is there anyone who might be interested in exploring this critical topic?
All are welcome.
Can I have a go at exploring it by denying your assertion?
I don't believe in the existence of a god, and I'm sure this biases my perspective on the topic, however having read through many arguments here and in other places, I don't think it's possible to prove or disprove a god's existence.
I can claim that a particular supernatural creature exists - let's say Bob. Now Bob is an incredible entity - far beyond my capacity to really understand. Very powerful, very omniscient, and so on. But - and here's the sticking point - Bob only appears in visions to me. He tells me what I should do with my life and how I should act with others. But he doesn't appear to anyone else.
Now I make the claim that Bob exists.
How do you prove that he does or doesn't?
You might infer, probably rightly, that I'm deluded, since the weight of evidence (ie. no one else claims to know about Bob) demonstrates this. But can you definitively prove this?
I don't think so.
And neither do I think you can definitievly prove or disprove any supernatural entity's existence.
