What do you think? Can you know for sure there is no god or gods just because you haven't been convinced by someone else's proof?

Can you say for sure without exact proof that god doesn't exist or can you only say that the proof at hand only means that it is LIKELY that there is no god?

What do YOU believe is proof of the non-existance of god/s?

And how do YOU define Atheist?

I define it as someone that does not follow Theism, as does the dictionary.

Hahaha, cute, Sid.

Well, it's nice to know that someone cares enough to take notice of me. Even though you misconstrued my words quite admirably, I'd actually like to see how others are willing to be open-minded and ask me personally which part of this is really true or not.
What Nelson asked.
he implied that because it can not be proven to him on his terms that he knows for sure there is no god. but you can't say for sure there isn't you can only believe there isn't.
Well, feel free to tell us all right here right now. Do you believe that since you have not been convinced that there IS a god that there can not be one what so ever and that you know this 100%

Explain your side exactly, as I did in this thread. I said that you can only believe there is no god, but can not know for sure that there isn't! Your proof is not enough to say for sure there isn't you can only be unconvinced there is.
You can't know.
You can, not believe in a god or gods without knowing for sure 100% of that fact. But you can't be 100% sure of it without absolute proof and, unless I am unaware of some great discovery, there is no proof 100% that there is no such thing as any kind of god! You only can believe there is not. That is not exactly agnostic. Agnostic is not having been convinced but still open to the possibility that there might be. You have not lived long enough or been everywhere in the universe to be able to say for sure there is no such thing as a god! It is arrogant to assume because you have not been convinced so that it can't ever be!
Yet that is my point 99.99999% isn't 100% You can not say you KNOW for SURE there is no god or gods or has never been. You can only believe or not believe. How do we really know the Mayan gods didn't exist, I mean we still don't even know what happen to them. For all we know their gods took them. Saying you as a limited human know for sure that there is no such thing as a god is just arrogant and pompous! That is all my point. You really don't know, you just find it unlikely. But long ago many things were thought to be unlikely or even impossible but are now very possible. Our views of the world around us is changing every day. For all we know science may one day prove there is a god. LOL My only point is you can not say for sure that there is no god. You can only personally not believe there is. Since you were not alive in the Cro-Mag time you don't know their god didn't exist!
I really don't know what to say to that. I think you kinda said it well enough. I might slightly differ in opinion but not enough to even bother saying.
exactly, you can only believe, but until you die, you do not and can not know for sure. You it is only your opinion. Theists have their own "proof" that god is real just as Atheist have their "proof" that god isn't. So who is right?
Chris did not bother to represent my point or side correctly so I don't think I should bother!
He didn't bother to use direct quotes in his thread about me, so why should I bother in mine about him?
Nelson mentioned your name. In a post almost identical to this one. He didn't misquote you, and he also he apologized in advance, in case he was wrong in anyway. I really don't see the point of having two posts with the same topic. Nor do I see the point in turning this into a he said she said argument.

State your case in Nelson's original post http://www.thinkatheist.com/forum/topics/what-does-it-mean-to-say-i
