There are no Gods (with partial evidence)

This is a controversial area for some, but logically, as no evidence for any God has been provided in the history of humanity, then none can be assumed. We, as an “intelligent” species (note, not “the” intelligent species, as so far we can not directly communicate with other animals in their own tongue, so cannot effectively judge the intelligence of other species) can only progress by accepting those things which can be demonstrated or proven, and reject those things which have no evidence (or only third party written testimony where the authorship is unknown and un-challengeable).

Theism ( the belief in a god or gods) has for centuries held back knowledge and science by its various doctrines and philosophies, by the threats on an eternity in some form of a punishment zone (Hell, for Abrahamic religions). This has prevented discoveries and inventions from being developed, including electricity and the aeroplane. Religion had no issue with the development of weapons or enslavement apparently, as both were perpetuated, and in some circumstances were endorsed by some religions (for example, blessing armies and military, stating “God was with them”).

The Baghdad Battery or Persian (Parthian) Battery is a set of three artifacts which were found together: a ceramic pot, a tube of copper, and a rod of iron. It was discovered in present-day Khujut RabuIraq, close to the metropolis of Ctesiphon, the capital of the Parthian (150 BC – 223 AD) and Sasanian (224–650 AD) empires, and it is believed to date from either of these periods.

Theism, and it’s organised form of religion, has existed in one form or another for thousands of years. Even early man demonstrated some forms of idol worship. This is believed to be be due to the in-built need of the human brain to to find patterns in everyday things around us (pareidolia). This is not logical often, but it can be the start of an investigation. However, often, the first solution which the brain creates is often accepted, in lieu of any evidence to the contrary, and this in itself can restrict the development of true knowledge.

Science is the search for answers by using a proven methodology which can be both falsified and verified via peer review. This means that all explanations will be based on truth. Religion based “science” (technically not true science, as science is based on knowledge, not belief) is based on belief in knowledge which cannot be proven or even demonstrated (Creationism).

Creationism is the religious belief that nature, and aspects such as the universeEarthlife, and humans, originated with supernatural acts of divine creation.[1][2]

In its broadest sense, creationism includes a continuum of religious views,[3][4] which vary in their acceptance or rejection of scientific explanations such as evolution that describe the origin and development of natural phenomena.[5][6]

Creationism has held science and humanity back for centuries, due to its strict observance of religious texts such as the Bible and Quran. Both the main texts have odd ideas about creation and how things came to be. There is not verifiable evidence for anything in religious texts, especially so-called “prophecies“. I put that in quotes because most of the prophetic statements in religious writings do not make a dated prediction, and thus can never be falsifiable, thus they are not true predictions. Those that have dates have all gone bye, with no validation of their outcome.

Another item which disproved a God is the double-slit experiment. This experiment proves that there is no god, at least not the type that religions state exists ( an omnipresent one). In this famous experiment, the outcome changes dependent on if the experiment is being observed. If there were a super-natural deity, then there should not be a difference in observations dependent on the observation of a human, as God would, in theory, be observing all the time. This negates the existence of an all seeing deity (which probably explains why you are questioned by St Peter before entering the kingdom of heaven).

I think, in these few paragraphs, I have demonstrated (should it really be necessary) that their are no gods. As I find more evidence, I shall update this post.
