In the thousands of years of trying, there has yet to be any rational, empirically-testable, falsifiable evidence for the existence of any divine superintelligence (note that I use the term divine superintelligence as a placeholder for whichever god(s) is/are being discussed).
Now, that's not to say that falsifiable evidence might somehow emerge before the sun sets tomorrow, but given that the track record on showing this evidence stands at 0% so far, it's unlikely in the extreme that such evidence exists.
Because the existence of any divine superintelligence has never, and CAN never, be demonstrated, that also means that atheism has come to an end.
Time to close the book on it.
It no longer makes sense to be an atheist. It only makes sense now, in my opinion, to be a post-theist.
Post-theism has been defined as:
... a variant of nontheism that proposes that the division of theism vs. atheism is obsolete, that God belongs to a stage of human development now past. (Source: https://findwords.info/term/post-theism)
But it's not just that. It's also a recognition that belief in divine superintelligence(s) played an important part in our history as a species. Our first attempts at explaining the natural world were conducted using theistic interpretations of natural events. That's to be expected, and even admired, from those societies that didn't have microscopes and telescopes and an understanding of evolution by natural selection.
We (humanity) thought god struck the earth with lightning because he was angry. Then we learned about meteorology.
We thought people got sick and died because god was displeased with them. Then we learned about bacteria and disease.
We thought floods and other natural disasters were a result of supernatural anger. Then we learned about tides.
In short, everything - and I do mean everything - we ascribed to supernatural forces have been found to be wholly natural. There isn't one scientifically-accepted example otherwise.
I think it's pretty well summed up in this blog post (note that the post is not mine and I have no connection with the author):
Here in Canada, the most "famous" post-theist (I use the term "famous" loosely) is probably Gretta Vosper of West Hill United Church in Toronto. Gretta is an openly-atheist (still using the term) minister in the United Church and was recently under threat to have her bona fides stripped from her by the church hierarchy. Fortunately, cooler, smarter heads prevailed and she retains her position. Source: https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2017/1 ... ister.htmlThe atheist label no longer makes sense because the question of god is a settled fact; a god doesn’t exist and never did, so one doesn’t lack belief, but rather proceeds with the knowledge that there’s no god and conducts their life as such.
You can get a handle on Gretta's philosophy here: So the argument about the existence of a divine superintelligence is over. Let's move on to more important issues: peace, justice, rational law and the freedom of the individual.
