Comment 7 by Steve Zara :

I'm glad to see Russell becoming involved in such debates. I have long admired his calm and reasoned approach to these matters. It clearly proved effective here.

However...

I don't claim to have proved, once and for all, that no gods exist. No high-profile atheist makes that claim - not Richard Dawkins, not Christopher Hitchens or Sam Harris - and neither, generally, do philosophical atheists in universities. Atheists don't usually make such an overweening claim.

I do feel I have to defend the "no gods exist" position! I know it is not widespread, but I also know I'm not alone in having that hard atheist position. Whether or not gods can exist depends on the definitions of the term, and I think it's not unreasonable to insist that the supernatural avatars of aspects of Nature (which includes the Abrahamic God) are truly impossible beings, even if only because their invention was at a time when Nature was thought to be very different from what we understand it to be today. Such gods are not just beyond evidence, but beyond reason and beyond possibility.

It may require some effort, but I do hope we can arrive at a point where the hard atheist position isn't considered "overwheening", but one of many respectable opinions about the nature of reality!
