I came across a wikiHow article on "How to Argue That God Does Not Exist" (95 editors, 391,099 views), and I think I’ll be using a few of these for challenges over the coming weeks, starting with this one:
If something exists, it can be scientifically quantified (measured and evaluated relative to its mass, energy, location, capabilities, and other qualities). For example, scientists have quantified millions of items ranging from dark holes in outer space to tiny atomic particles (such as the recently discovered Higgs Boson). If something cannot be scientifically quantified, it does not exist (in the real universe).
How do you respond to this challenge? Let us know in the comments below, then check back here on Thursday to see Alan’s response.
