Disproof atheism is disbelief in the existence of God based on a comprehensive critique of proofs of God’s existence and a growing web of empirical and conceptual disproofs of God’s existence. This growing web of disproofs:
1) addresses a variety of concepts of God held by major religions and
2) demonstrates that each of these concepts of God not only contradicts empirical facts and scientific theories but is self-contradictory, and
3) provides an ever more formidable cumulative case against the existence
The Disproof Atheism Society, founded in 1994:
— is an independent, Boston-based, worldwide network of people interested
in logic, science, and analytic philosophy who support the development
of disproof atheism.
— holds monthly talks, discussions, and other events, usually at Boston
University and frequently with a featured speaker.
— hosted in 2010 the first-ever Disproof Atheism Conference, an all-day
academic conference focused on conceptual disproofs of God.
— provides resources and references on disproof atheism.

the more impossible and contradictory will he appear.”
