NB. This is only a partial list - there are thousands more.

 

If you have decided ‘Yes’ for any of the gods above, please support your selection with convincing evidence in the form of repeatable observations; if you are not sure about what constitutes repeatable observations take a look at page 5a.

 

Many gods feature in ancient writings, so uncorroborated quotes from old books do not count as convincing evidence. Most of the gods listed above no longer have the support of believers - our choices have changed.

 

BELIEF IS A PERSONAL CHOICE. IT IS TEMPORARY AND IT IS MONUMENTALLY UNIMPORTANT.

Look at this ant

 

Does it believe in Humpty Dumpty? Does it form a community of worshippers - the Humptydumptians? Does it go to war with a rival group of fellow ants - the Goldilockians? Does it really matter what it believes?

You are that ant!

 

Whatever you believe, are you impressed by your beliefs? If so, why? Are you a king or something?

Even if you are a king, you are just one person in a population of over seven billion, one out of about one hundred billion humans who have lived so far. Your beliefs are just the trivial choices of an insignificant ape who has a fleeting existence (a lifetime of about 75 yrs out of a total time of 13.7 billion yrs).

 

Do you believe:

 

In Father Christmas?

In The Tooth Fairy?

In the Loch Ness Monster?

That coffee tastes nicer

with sugar?

That green is your

favourite colour?

So what? Those are just your

personal choices.

 

It gives me no pleasure to realise that some of my closest associates periodically hate me just because they have chosen to believe in a fairy tale. (I still like them tho’!)

 

Do we need religious hatred based on non-evidential gods?

 

"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one less god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods,

you will understand why I dismiss yours."  Stephen F. Roberts
