What's the difference between a bad golfer and a bad skydiver?
    A bad golfer goes, WHACK! "Damn."
    A bad skydiver goes, "Damn." WHACK!

I'm Hindu. My family is not very religious. But for the past few years, I have been reading some books containing teachings of some Hindu gurus. I am still trying to find out whether or not God exists, how the universe began and why do we all exist., etc.

I also try to read teachings of other religious leaders too.

Mostly, I think I WANT to believe there is a God. So, I construct my arguments that way. For now, I will believe that  there is no way to  prove that God does not  exist.
But I will try to think of a way around it.

You know Clydey, I was actually going to post this:

"You are right. If it is something that only you can see and hear, then I cannot prove or disprove your word."

Clydey: I have a pet unicorn.

sweet_jane: Show it.

Clydey: It is invisible.

sweet_jane:Where is it?

Clydey: It is right here.

Maybe you would pretend you were stroking it at this point, to prove your point. I would move to that place and try to feel the unicorn, if I can't feel it, then you are lying. If I can, the you do really have a pet unicorn.
I may also listen for some sounds, like the swishing of the tail,etc.

@Mark

Yes, it is mind blowing.

A few years back, I read a book by a Hindu sage (I forgot his name). He said that we cannot possibly imagine what God maybe like. Humans have five sense organs to feel the world around them. But what if God cannot be realized by any of the five senses? So you wouldn't get the proof of "existence of God" if you were only using your five senses would you?

@Clydey

Yes, I agree that is not a perfect analogy. What I wanted to say was this: Atheists say that they don't believe in God because there is no proof that God exists. But if they have don't have proof that God does not exists, then they also have no proof that God does not NOT exists.

Here is a story I found on the Internet:

The story is told of an atheist scientist, a friend of Sir Isaac Newton, who knocked on the door and came in after he had just finished making his solar system machine (i.e. one of the machines like the one in the science museum where you crank the handle and the planets and moons move round).

The man saw the machine and said 'how wonderful' and went over to it and started cranking the handle and the planets went round. As he was doing this he asked, 'Who made this?'

Sir Isaac stopped writing and said 'nobody did'. Then he carried on writing.

The man said, 'you didn't hear me. Who made the machine?'  Newton replied, 'I told you. Nobody did.' He stopped cranking and turned to Isaac 'Now listen Isaac, this marvelous machine must have been made by somebody - don't keep saying that nobody made it.'

At which point Isaac Newton stopped writing and got up. He looked at him and said 'Now isn't it amazing. I tell you that nobody made a simple toy like that and you don't believe me. Yet you gaze out into the solar System - the intricate marvelous machine that is around you - and you dare say to me that no one made that. I don't believe it'.

You know Gandhi actually said,
"The message of Jesus as I understand it is contained in the Sermon on the Mount unadulterated and taken as a whole... If then I had to face only the Sermon on the Mount and my own interpretation of it, I should not hesitate to say, 'Oh, yes, I am a Christian.' But negatively I can tell you that in my humble opinion, what passes as Christianity is a negation of the Sermon on the Mount... I am speaking of the Christian belief, of Christianity as it is understood in the west."
