TLDR; You can prove something exists or doesn't exist, but sometimes humanity is too moronic to do either, take the agnostic pill.

    Agnosticism is the dumbest position because it's obviously possible to know things, so why can we know everything except whether or not God exists?
    It's like if I told you it's impossible to know anything except whether or not you let me borrow $1000 last week.

      Can you imagine a new color? Can you imagine something unimaginable and indescribable because you have never discovered it?

      God is either real or not real, but we humans currently cannot prove His existence or disprove His existence. That doesn't mean it's automatically impossible, because maybe it is possible to do either but we just haven't found how to do it.

      Our senses and conscience to allow us to see and feel the things relevant for our survival as a species. The existence or not of a god is so irrelevant for our survival that the chances that we evolved to be able to sense understand it are next to zero.

    >take the agnostic pill
    There's this weird phenomenon where the bar for believing something is set way higher in religious debates than in any other context. I think it's because everyone wants to make people who believe differently look like morons.
    Agnosticism is not as attractive as it seems at first glance if you don't have this super high bar for belief.

      Theists cannot prove His existence, atheists cannot prove His non-existence. The only thing left is to be agnostic.

        That's not how burden of proof works. If there's no evidence for the existence of something, your only options are to dismiss the idea of its existence, or concede that you choose to have faith in something without proof. There is no such thing as proving non-existence.

          I can prove that there is no island on the moon, I can prove there is no shoe in an empty room. You can absolutely prove non-existence, I can prove that you will never know the touch of a woman.

            You would literally prove all of those things through a lack of evidence of something else existing, or simply based on the definition of what you're describing you smoothbrain. By definition, you're already agreeing with him. What he's saying is that you cannot logically disprove a claim like "there's an invisible octopus incapable of being detected invisibly sucking your blood, then regenerating it for you at all hours of the day and then stingning you with a neurotoxin so you don't feel it". What you're doing is the equivalent of going "um actually I can prove there's no hand in front of my face so why can't I prove the octopus doesn't exist!" Actual smoothbrained behavior.

          >you cant prove something doesnt exist
          You can in pure philosophical context or mathematical one.
          You can prove something doesnt exist or equivalently a set doesnt have elements through contradiction

    Suggest an experiment to prove the hypothesis? So what experiment do you propose for the existence of God?

    All things in reality are not proven the same way. When we are talking about material things like unicorns, microorganisms, certain animals and objects, these things can be proven through physical evidence. But spiritual, intellectual or metaphysical "things" can't be seen under a microscope, yet they exist. You can't "prove" that truth, numbers, laws of logic and language exists because these things have to exist before we can even talk about what is real and what is not real. When you enter into the mode of "I'm going to prove that truth exists", you have already presupposed that truth exists, how could you prove it otherwise?

      Debatable but he’s talking about a god which the religious ones could be proven to exist if they did. At least the Christian one could.

    You don't really need to go far back in time. Your beloved rabbi Jebus didn't know about them or bacteria around 33 AD, going as far as telling people not to wash their hands:

    The Pharisees and some of the teachers of the law who had come from Jerusalem gathered around Jesus 2 and saw some of his disciples eating food with hands that were defiled, that is, unwashed. 3 (The Pharisees and all the israelites do not eat unless they give their hands a ceremonial washing, holding to the tradition of the elders. 4 When they come from the marketplace they do not eat unless they wash. And they observe many other traditions, such as the washing of cups, pitchers and kettles.[a])

    5 So the Pharisees and teachers of the law asked Jesus, “Why don’t your disciples live according to the tradition of the elders instead of eating their food with defiled hands?”

    6 He replied, “Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you hypocrites; as it is written:

    “‘These people honor me with their lips,
    but their hearts are far from me.
    7 They worship me in vain;
    their teachings are merely human rules."

    14 Again Jesus called the crowd to him and said, “Listen to me, everyone, and understand this. 15 Nothing outside a person can defile them by going into them. Rather, it is what comes out of a person that defiles them.” [16] [f]

    17 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. 18 “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? 19 For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)

    Sounds like the "NPC" is being completely reasonable here. If you have no evidence for the existence of microorganisms then you might as well be talking about fairies.
