Actual proof that there is no God.?
By proof I mean actual, tangible evidence, supported by sense baring traits--can you see, taste, touch, feel, or smell undeniable, that God does not exist? Scientific, reproducible evidence/data, well validated, is acceptable. Short of that, I will accept a valid, well written "logical" proof that God does not exist. Bare in mind, I want only serious responses. If you are angry or are overly emotional in your responses, please don't respond. Thank you for your time.
What I was looking for was an argument in the case of or against logical conclusions. For instance if bango exists then god (as considered from the viewpoint of most all major religions) for all intents and purposes doesn't exist. I don't think the pope would agree that God is nothing more than the absence of everything.
Since, by definition, bango can either exist or not, then either way, there is no God. There are no other alternatives (you can't have a partial bango) then we've conclusively shown God isn't. My point is that arguments as flawed as this have been force fed to most of us for years now, except we just ignore the holes because they tell us not to think about those while at the same time feeding us even more convoluted logic. Yet people buy it. Billions of them. Makes me wonder about us as a species. It also adds to the list of solid arguments for God's existence.

Lol, I love the people who can't read. Thank you for making me smile those of you who think this is an atheist post.

If you've made it past the third grade you know the answer to this. You should be ashamed for asking this tired old worn out question.
Honestly I can only assume you're desperate for points to ask this. Foolishly I expected so much more of people when I first came to this part of YA and yet I have been consistently disappointed in both the people asking and answering.
Max would you like me to make an argument for the existence of your god? Honestly I could do a much better job than 99.999% of what I read here. And yet in the end I could still come up with not only a better argument against it. I could even give you a better argument for why if there is a god atheists are gods chosen people and will be the only people who make it into heaven.
I can even offer more evidence to support the claim that I am the creator of the universe than any theist on Earth can give for god creating it.

No one can "prove" that God does or doesn't exist.
The only thing your proof does is prove that you do not understand the basic idea of how something is proved. You conclude that because we have senses that God must exist even though they are completely unrelated. If you took a university bio-psychology class you would understand about how chemical synapses and biochemical interaction work to produce this effect. They have irrefutable proof of how our senses are realized by the nervous system and brain.
If you could find some way to prove that a God does exist (you can't) then you would negate the need for faith which is the cornerstone of religion. Without faith then God doesn't really exist so therefore by proving he exists, you prove he can't exist and there within lies the problem.
So don't worry about what everyone else thinks. Stop trying to prove God exists and worry about your religion yourself. Your religious journey is supposed to be between YOU and your God... not you forcing your beliefs on to others.

God's holy book (the bible) contradicts itself in many ways proving that either God is a liar or that some or all of the book is wrong. This does not mean that there is no God. It does mean that we cannot trust some or all of the book to tell us who/what this god is. We can also conclude that the god described in the bible cannot exist because his existence is impossible by definition.
Without this book we have no reason to believe in this specific god. Therefore the claim that this god does exist must be proved in order for one to believe outside of faith. The burden of proof remains with the one making the claim that god does exist. There is no more need to prove that this god does not exist than there is a need to prove that any other imginary being does not exist.

A valid logical proof would not proof that something doesn't exist. This is called proving the negative and is recognized as not possible. Therefore a logical proof is always done in the positive i.e. "prove that god exists" or "proof that unicorns, exist".
As far as evidence goes, you can only present evidence for existing thing i.e. this is a fossil of a T. Rex bone, we know this as we have assembled many complete fossil skeletons of them and it matches well known characteristics. You can not provide evidence for showing something is non existent as it would be like saying "we have never found a unicorn horn".

Why should we follow a book (that we are supposed to look to as fact) that was written 400 years after the actual events? Have you ever heard the same story twice? let alone past down by word of mouth for hundreds of years?
Religions were created at a time where people needed to believe in something. The world was full of brutal barbarians that had nothing to look forward to. What better way to civilized people and give them hope than religion. They showed them that there was heaven, a blissful place that they will go to after this life, but only if they are good. They killed two birds with one stone.

Your also forgetting to ask: Is there even proof he ever existed in the first place?
And I say Nay. If he ever walked our world wheres the corpse? you'd think if he existed he'd have have some descendants now a days so... where are his kin?! the defendants of the wise men?!
I say someone developed crack back then and that made them think God was real! when it was just them OD'ing. For all they and we know they could of been high out of they're minds and thought a cactus was God!
God is a sanity issue, Heaven is a sate of mind, and "seeing a calling" from God?! that's your wake up call to either stop doing junk or admit yourself for mental help.

God is but the English Christian name for the deity invented by Moses as Yahweh and called Dieu in France, Gott in Germany, Dios in Spain, Kami in Japan, etc. There is no "actual, tangible proof" that any gods exist. The Bible is strong evidence that its god does not exist. It has many contradictions and scientific errors. If such a god did exist, he would be an illiterate imbecile. It is more logical to see that men who invented him were the ignorant ones.

I get the Impression?, that you are a person who Is, "For want of a better Terminology"?, very scared of something?, or someone. You are I take It wanting something that "Doesn't exist", (Well not within our power to accept, given as you mentioned the fact that we have Only Five senses.( I wonder, If there are other senses out there?.). Most of them compared to the "Humble Animal", Very poor quality Indeed. In a word or two, we think we are "So Superior, and lets face It, Smug?, about our Knowledge??. What a laugh that must seem, to God?, as we throw attitudes and queries Like yours "Out For An Airing"?
Finally, there Is no question In "My Tiny? little Mind", that you are very much "A Man Of God.
Thank you!!, for your time.

To prove that something does not exist is virtually impossible. This is the point of Russell's teapot and the Invisible Pink Unicorn. The Flying Spaghetti Monster was constructed for other reasons, but applies just as well. At some point, absence of evidence renders something trivial, but cannot disprove it.

I say this with all seriousness! If you can actually prove that God does not exist, then you must have Omnipotent power to prove his nonexistence anywhere in the universe, as well as Omnipresent knowledge about what is taking place everywhere (both here on earth, as well as the rest of what exists). If you do happen to possess those two attributes, then you yourself are God.
