> I think something may been missing from this thread. I don't see that anyone has attempted to define just what it is they think God is. Has anyone? Some people define or regard God simply as existence. Using this definition, the existence of God has been proven. Existence exists, doesn't it.

This is an old trick we used to use when I was on the high school debate team - try to find definitions that make your position obviously true. (Black's Law Dictionary came in handy here.)

Hmm...well, can't one have blind faith in what seems "obvious?"

These days, education requires wealth, doesn't it?

But anyway will provide the answer to your question.

> I haven't spoken to enough Christians regarding this topic to know if this is true or not. It does seem that it is religion that has inspired most of the great feats of mankind, especially those of antiquity. This may no longer be true in the industrial age.

Okay, I think we should start listing the great feats of mankind now.
