This is not just a website for non-believers in God. It is also designed to be a balanced source of information for the faithful to consider and to accept a challenge.

Main contexts for truth in the non-existance of a god:

Experience: There is no reliable record of God ever being seen or heard.

Explanation: Life and the Universe can now be extensively explained by scientists.

Evidence: A huge amount of geological evidence now exists, much of which is non-corroborative with fundamental religious beliefs.

Evolution: That evolution of life has occurred over billions of years is now scientifically irrefutable.

Foundation: The ancient foundations for belief in God would not stand up if first expressed in modern times.

Abiogenesis: It is now partly understood how the early forms of life came into existance naturally.

Proof: There is no reliable proof that God exists.

Rationality: There are abundant rational arguments refuting the existance of God.

Why Does It Matter?

Humanity invests enormously in, and acts accordingly to, the various religious faiths and beliefs. Some positive benefits of a world largely not believing in God could be:

Fewer Wars: Most of the world's conflicts have a religious element. Many of these tensions may not exist if the participants and leaders did not believe in God.

Less Terrorism: Many of the world's terrorists are driven by religious fervour and would not act as they do without the twisted excuse of an obligation to God.

Decreased Population: Humanity is over-populating the world, destroying the natural environment, causing climate change, bringing about extinctions and increasingly depleting natural resources. Millions of people are forbidden to use birth control due to religious beliefs, thus exacerbating these problems.

Increased Health: Many people, due to certain religious beliefs or constraints, do not take optional care of their health through taking actions such as maintaining a nutritious well balanced diet, taking proper exercise or getting a healthy amount of sunlight to their bodies. These women, or men, could break free of such contraints if they did not believe in a god.

Global Unity: Humanity faces many problems: addressing climate change, growing enough food to feed inflated populations, the increasing tolerence of bacteria and viruses to medicines, and overcoming poverty to name a few. Reducing the devisiveness caused by differences in religious belief and custom could bring about greater global unity enabling humanity to be better able to deal with these problems.

More Time: A collossal amount of time is spent globally by people following religious persuits or carrying out religious activities, some of these having little benefit to anyone. Disbelieving in God could enable many people to spend much more time on productive or otherwise beneficial activities.

Increased Human Rights: There are still places in the world where people, especially women, are not allowed basic human rights due to the religious climate they live in. Again, the pivot of these problems is belief in God.

More Tolerance: Some people who believe in God are not very tolerent of others of different religions, or those of no religion, or of people deemed to offend God such as homosexuals or adulterers. A belief in God is often at the root of intolerance.
