Don Wood's "Proof"
Don Wood went on and on claiming to have proof of God's existence and I read through his whole diatribe and nowhere does he state his proof. One can only conclude that he has none, but is only interested in putting down people whose opinion differs from his.
I've had people say to me, look at the sky, the fields, the ocean, the beautiful sunset. Isn't that proof positive of God? I reply, "Following that line of thought, look at the magnificent rainbows after a big rainstorm. Isn't that proof positive that God is gay?"
