Re: No need for invisible men..
But you could also say that with modern understanding of how unbelievably amazing the universe is and how unfathomable a place it really is...
Why does that necessitate an invisible man? Why is that any sort of answer no matter how "amazing" and "unfathomable" anything may be?
...that modern skeptics are also victims of their own imaginations in thinking that they understand enough of existence and the universe to say with such certainty that there isn't a God.
It isn't those of us who doubt the existence of god(s) who are either claiming certainty or claiming to have all the answers. We generally leave that sort of thing to those of faith....
When in reality the true value of how much we actually know is probably more or less nothing compared with what there is to know.
Sure. But what I think we can say with confidence is that evidenced answers (and causes of observed phenomena) are significantly more likely to be correct than unevidenced answers and causes. Otherwise why bother basing our answers on evidence at all?
You ask in this thread wheher belief in god is scientific. If we take human belief in supernatural entities as the observed phenomenon and then ask what the cause of this phenomenon might be - What is the evidenced answer?
Human psychology. Obviously.
