For the purpose of the question, I'm using the word "god", but by that I mean any deity of any religion. That said, I don't believe in god, because I have no reason to. God has never spoken to me, made himself known to me in any way. However, if god was to appear to me in some way and I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was god, I would believe, because I would have a reason to.
For those who DO believe: if it could be proven, somehow, that there WAS no god; would you still believe? Yes, I know there is no way to prove either of those things; this is purely hypothetical. If there was %100, no-doubt-about-it, scientific PROOF, would it change your belief, or would you cling to it? Explain why.
Please don't respond with "that would never happen!!" I just said it's impossible to prove. I'm looking for honest answers, not a lecture, please. I'm really curious.

1. its not impossible, its improbable.
There is more than one way to skin a cat; Facts/proof is never one direct way. I think that the existence of God(s), Goddess(es) CAN be just as factual as "scientific proof".
2.There are plenty of things that science cannot prove, but they know and acknowledge the existence (i.e planet x, alien life, and etc.)
How does a def/blind/mute know when someone is approaching? - They can feel it.
As the Christians say, "Faith comes by hearing", if you have faith you can make anything you feel attached to (a) God/dess. But, if you reject all logic, you KNOW when something/ someone is real/present.

3. The God/dess(es) that I honor are all personifications of nature itself, so I dont see how they could be disproved, BUT hypothetically speaking, if they were disproved, I would not still believe.
