    Dream on, pard. Dream on.

    No, it is not. Every year millions experience God for themselves. You should, too. It's the logical thing to do. Don't bother moving the goalposts. It's more evidence than atheists have to shore up their fantasy that there is no God.

    You don't have to wish for what you already have, and hundreds of millions of intelligent people have a close relationship with God.

    Each of us creates our own spiritual reality. Mine has a Superior Being. Yours may have nothing. I get it.

    Maybe. There is no way to confirm or deny.

    Perhaps that concept is about "hope", Romans 8:24.

    "Many believers admit that nothing could change their mind about their religious beliefs, which means they are no longer seekers of truth and have become, in essence, mindless religious robots. Religion consistently and effectively discourages introspection and inquiry. That isn't by accident."-- Bob Peters

    Atheists seem to like to think so.

    But this is just another form of genetic fallacy.
