Has history or science disproved God?

Report as

Neither history nor science, nor anything else, had disproved OR proved the existence of any god. The existence of god, any god, is strictly a matter of faith.

Not yet, we aren't that far into our knowledge of the universe. If anything, it's supporting it, at the moment. For now, it's just theories and misconceptions.

No, there is no evidence that supports a god or gods.

The fact that there is no evidence is what's supporting them.
Report as
What? So the fact that there is no evidence saying I'm not a god, means I am?
Report as
Since there is no evidence disproving it, it (kind of) proves it. We don't know, for sure, how the universe was created so it's easy to believe that this omni potent being created everything within it.

no.. to a certain degree. history had almost been promoting god since the dawn of man. science had limited gods existence. science is like, god created the origin, but science explains everything else. hope this helped. star and follow me please!

No, I don't think so. All arguments (why not)can be countered with a corresponding theory(why). Perhaps some of the old biblical theories have been, like how long man has existed

Nope -- there is no scientific proof regarding the existence of god, OR non-existence. That's something that will never have definite, concrete proof one way or the other, so believe what YOU believe in -- and, whatever that may be, it is the right belief for YOU. :)

If you use the scientific method when asking a question about a god's existence, then you could disprove it using reasoning and common sense.

Of course, faith and believing in an invisible higher power cannot be determined by science, because science is based on things you can perceive with your senses. Ex: We know gravity exists because humans do not fly off of the earth randomly, but are pulled down to it.

So... No?

As an atheist I would challenge the claim that science disproves God. Science cannot prove a negative. Lack of proof is proof on nothing. While science may not support the existence of God, but it cannot prove that God does not exist.

Not yet. Something caused the Big Bang and slowed the universe from faster then light energy to matter

The Higgs field explains why the universe has mass actually.
Report as
But something had to turn on the Higgs field; As I understand it, the Higgs field slowed down the universe to form matter, but it's not yet explained how the Higgs boson formed
Report as
I'm not necessarily pro-ideology/theology either
Report as
That is not exactly right. Nothing had to "turn on" the Higgs field.

Your line of Argumentation is a version of the Argument from Ignorance fallacy- the claim that if you don't know or understand something the answer must be god/supernatural. This is not remotely the case. All you can say from the fact that science does not yet know something is...that we don't yet know something. This god-of-the-gaps thinking means your "god" shrinks every day as science advances.
Report as
"Your" used in the general sense not you specifically.
Report as
I said, "it's not yet explained" followed by "I'm not pro-ideology/theology". So YOUR beef with religious types is misguided by firing off at me. In theory, the Higgs field slowed down energy to create matter, which caused the collision we termed "the big bang". If people feel at peace calling this God saying 'Let there be light', so to them their ignorance and fear
Report as
Which was clarified when I stated not "you" specifically.

You also have it a bit wrong still-
The Big Bang was not a collision, and the Higgs field occurred just after the first moments of this universe- it was not a causative agent to the Bog Bang but a result.
Report as
Correct. I was wrong. But as mass was created, so was the Higgs field. Matter was created because energy particles began to slow down from the speed of light and coalesce by way of the Higgs field, then collide, causing the big bang.

Correct?

Nope. As a matter of fact, when I study science and history, (especially science), my belief in God gets stronger. It reminds me how many amazing things God has created. Just studying about the human body itself is mind boggling. Another thing that's even more amazing is how some of those scientific discoveries are already written in the Qur'an, which is from more than 1400 years ago. But of course it's not that surprising because the Qur'an is in Gods words, and God knows all those scientific discoveries made, and all those that will be made in the future.
God CREATED science and history. The universe is proof of Gods existence.

No. You cannot disprove something that has not yet been proved.

We must open our eyes to that of which is intangible; for those who believe in the same sort of intangible things, are also capable of believing in God. God's presence is found in the soul and faith alone.

Universal nonexistence of any entity can't technically be proven, from gods to unicorns. The burden of proof lies on the person claiming existence to prove it.

Science and history just show gods to be less likely or unnecessary.

That's why we have the bible,and there is only one God,and you can stamp your feet all you want it's not going to change a thing,and when given proof in testimony of thousands of people that have expirienced Possession and Exorcism's you still deny, that's to bad.
Report as
Because that's not proof. Are the thousands of people that see UFOs, big foot, or lochness proof of their existences?
Report as
Millions claim testimonies of other gods too. Guess they all exist.


And claiming the bible is proof is circular logic of the worst sort. That argument is basically:
God exists. How do you know? The bible says so. How do you know the bible is true? It's the word of God. How do you know? The bible says so.

And you seriously expect people to buy this?

Suppose I set out to prove pink flamingoes exist. I may find one my first week, or it may take a while; but as soon as I find just one, I have proven the hypothesis.

Suppose I set out to prove purple flamingoes do not exist. I may search for years w/o finding any purple flamingoes, but that is not conclusive proof they do not exist. I may not have looked in every corner of the earth, then every corner of the solar system, then every corner of the galaxy. To prove non-existence requires all knowledge everywhere.

So, no, not at all; your hypothesis is a practical and logical impossibility.

No, the study of history and science has actually done a lot to prove the existence of God. For example at Isaiah 40:22 the Bible talks about how the Earth is round and the heavens are being stretched out. We know from Science that the Earth is round and that the universe continues to expand each and every day. Science proved something that was written in the Bible almost 4000 years ago.
For history we can look at the accuracy of Biblical writers like Luke for example when he was naming the time periods where Jesus was on the earth, for example at Luke 3:1 he makes mention that it was the 15th year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar when Jesus (the Son of God) was baptized (Luke 3:21), which was the year 29 AD/CE. Tiberius started to reign in 14AD/CE, add 15 years to that and you get 29 AD/CE.
So all in all history and science has done very much in proving the existence of God

Yes both have disproved God, i should say, any human claims to god, meaning any of the religions found today. History has shown us thousands of gods and religions which have fallen to the way side and forgotten as we advance throughout the years, demonstrating the fallacy of claims of gods, the falsehood of religion and its eventual fate as people become educated as opposed to saying sky god did it. Science has disproved god by disproving the bible and other holy works, in addition to providing use with a natural explanation of much of the observable universe. Also simply because we do not know/haven't learned it yet doesn't mean we then get to say sky god did it because some 2000 yr old scientifically inaccurate book, which said that 7 flicks of bird blood can cure skin diseases, said it. All it means is that we need to find out more, instead of just not finding out and saying sky god did it.

Also it comes down to definitions of god, which there are two, one that god interacts with the observable universe or two, god is beyond space and time, which equates to non-existence. So we are left with the former which can easily be dis-proven by above statements.
