In this thread, I will use "gods" as a description of deities. And with that being said— Logic dictates not, and I'll tell you why. Gods answer prayers and questions in the form of three answers: Yes, no, wait. An example: Say you ask for more money because you desperately need it. You pray to gods to give you this money in hopes that he will answer your prayer. A week later, you receive the money you need in the form of a raise from your workplace. Did gods answer your prayer? Of course he didn't. Your prayer to gods were answered merely because of a coincidence. With answers like "yes," "no," and "wait," gods are never wrong. It would be impossible for them to be wrong. If you pray to gods for anything, they will always give you a definitive answer no matter what. Why? Because there is only one outcome from those answers. You could receive money right away(yes), never receive money(no) or receive money at an infinite amount of time later(wait), as gods surely wouldn't be specific about answering prayer; that would've exposed them a long time ago. The only conclusion I get from this is that gods do not exist.
