We don't need to go that far. Just a cursory glance at human history/psychology shows quite sufficiently that any such conceptions are fictitious.
Not that we "can't understand it". We can't understand Dark Energy but we know it exists. Efficaciousness does not require understanding.
With this god thing it is more of a "no discernible effect on anything in this universe" which means no evidence whatsoever. That alone creates the case of "not exist for all intents and purposes."
Bad example. We know that there was once lots of anti-matter and we know why there isn't so much anymore. And since we can make it in our labs we know it does exist regardless of intent or purpose.
Why? Because you were told this as an innocent trusting non-critical child?
You got emotional. You know how emotion affects judgement.
How about this: Religion is bad for the culture, the society, the species.
Well, actually science has already decided. Anything that can be asserted without evidence is just as easily dismissed without any concern at all.
You're being a good straight man, Phat.
Having been wrong about so many things in the past is exactly why the scientific methods, all of them, were devised and are so strongly and highly regarded.
And yes, we "limit yourselves by sticking to evidence" and the other things you mention so to avoid the egregious errors of the past and their disastrous consequences.
Proper analysis of an issue will lead to consensus. Good for us.
