My position is that while the is no evidence for the existence of the supernatural, e.g., “God the Creator of the Universe,” it is also logically impossible for the universe to have had a cause (since such a cause would necessarily be non-existent, i.e., not part of the universe).
Notice that I don’t have to prove that God doesn’t exist — and it is unreasonable to ask for any such proof of a negative. It is sufficient reason not to believe in God that there is no evidence or logic to support such a belief — besides which the whole notion of a supernatural cause of the universe is self-contradictory nonsense.
Many, many, people believe in God. Notice how that doesn’t prove anything.
Some people don’t believe in God. Notice how that doesn’t prove anything about God.
Indeed, there is nothing to prove anything about God. Only blind faith can support belief in God. So those who don’t indulge in blind, i.e., religious, faith aren’t likely to believe in God.
And fortunately, it takes zero faith to grasp the existence of nature — and to deal with it.
Consider what C.S. Lewis said: “If there was a controlling power outside the universe, it could not show itself to us as one of the facts inside the universe — no more than the architect of a house could actually be a wall or staircase or fireplace in that house. The only way in which we could expect it to show itself would be inside ourselves as an influence or a command trying to get us to behave in a certain way. And that is just what we do find inside ourselves. Surely this ought to arouse our suspicions? ”
What is really suspect in this case is the confusion of imagination with reality. The process by which people feel that “God shows himself inside ourselves” simply means that God is an imaginary character — one not to be taken literally.
