The rest of us do it quite safely, and quite often.

But not to the point where you can say you know that cars do not exist. You're only looking in one very limited place.

I've shown you all the rational tests that have been done.

Looking for God, pretty much everywhere, and never finding Him.

But you haven't - not one single, solitary test that would pass scientific muster. You haven't even specified what "detection of God" would look like.

Re: When specifics are required
Perhaps its a bit like looking for a lost hiker in the wilderness. As each day passes, there is a decreasing chance that they are alive or found a spot in which to survive. ringo points out that we can and should keep looking as life has value. John declares that In Him is Life and that Life is the Light of Men. Stile and ringo both may point out that many without His "Light" supposedly do quite well with their own "Light".

Chance as a real force is a myth. It has no basis in reality and no place in scientific inquiry. For science and philosophy to continue to advance in knowledge, chance must be demythologized once and for all. ~RC Sproul
"A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes." ~Mark Twain "

You can "get answers" by watching the ducks. That doesn't mean the answers are coming from them.~Ringo

“As the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, so the denial of God is the height of foolishness.”
