Still refusing to believe that others have used inductive reasoning to come to entirely different conclusions? Bringing into question it's usefulness?
Most theists have used inductive reasoning, the sum total of all that others have told them and that they have personally experienced, and concluded that there is a god.
You have used inductive reasoning, the sum total of all that others have told you and that you have personally experienced, and concluded that there is no god.
Funny thing. You aren't that experienced at all. You have lived an infinitesimal amount of time compared to the age of the planet, let alone the age of the universe. You have traveled a miniscule amount on the planet, let alone the vastness of space. Your personal experience, and all the knowledge that you have learned from listening to others really doesn't amount to much when taken into the context of the origins of the universe. Most wise people understand that the more you know, the more you realize that you don't know. You are ironically unencumbered by such notions.
I find that humorous.
