Re: Shedding light on non-existant light:
Is it possible that your extreme aversion to anything resembling spirituality irrationally clouds all thoughts and conclusions you draw?
I am just not sure how anyone can be so sure that there is no spiritual force in the world. To not be convinced, ok that seems reasonable enough, but to be sure that it couldn't be? That is about as closed minded and in denial as one could get I would think.
Its not possible that all the cosmos and consciousness, and symmetry of the universe all have a divine underpinning, just by the fact of their existence?
What evidence do you have to convince you that there could NOT be a God?

Re: Shedding light on non-existant light:
Well, I stand corrected, but it leads me to an even more perplexing question. Why do you believe in a God when you don't think the laws of nature reveal evidence of a God, you don't think the chemically driven feelings in our brains have a tangible reality in our universe, and you think creationists are delusional? What possible reason do you have for believing in a God then?

Re: Shedding light on non-existant light:
This is a logical fallacy, appeal to ignorance (argumentum ex silentio litteraly 'argument from silence'). The burden of proof lies with the one attempting to prove the existence of something (whether it be God or anything else) not the other way around.
This is kind of a funny point. Their is no burden of proof on anyone. It is not an issue of someone else needing to convince you. it is for you to convince or not convince yourself.
The belief is entirely internal, not external. There is not going to be empirical evidence. If the evidence was empirical, it wouldn't be a spirit, it would be a man or a dog. That is why it is called faith, and not observation. The belief is entirely internal, not external.
