"I am not trying to prove anything. I am only telling you that if you arrogantly demand proof you will never believe and you will die in your sins."
"The world itself is evidence of a creator to those whose eyes are not blinded by their bias. Some humans don't want there to be a G-d because they don't want to be accountable to G-d. Nevertheless, there is a G-d and we all will be held accountable for what we did in life." May I add these comments all came in response to me asking for evidence for the existence of a god.
So it got me thinking about how to show that faith is not a good thing to have when you are making a decision about a god. After all the existence and belief in a god is a major aspect of a persons life, it allows you to discriminate for example. So if faith/god condones something like discrimination then surely it warrants evidence and not faith. So before the theists start crying let me give you an example.
You go to a used car lot and the salesman comes out and this is what he tells you. "I have just the car for you, it comes from a famous Italian sport car manufacturer. It has only ever had one owner who only drove it on weekends. It is red in colour, 5 speed manual shift and has air conditioning. Its engine is in perfect working condition." So hearing this maybe you are conjuring up an image of a sports car which the owner took out for a weekend cruise, something from a famous designer like Ferrari.
So if this is the kind of evidence you require when buying a car. Why would you not expect the same when you are asked to believe in a god. Why not have faith in the car salesman? Or should I ask why do you not have faith in the car salesman? Is it possibly due to the fact that people hold the wrong impression that car salesman have a tendency to inflate the truth? Does this remind you of what your minister/rabbi/mullah does?
Now how about asking for some evidence.
