I'm glad you brought up inertia:
1. Physics The tendency of a body to resist acceleration; the tendency of a body at rest to remain at rest or of a body in straight line motion to stay in motion in a straight line unless acted on by an outside force.
The very fact that things at rest will stay at rest unless acted upon by an outside force and or things in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. Since the universe i full of objects on the move my question to you since you are a scientific genus can you explain how all of those got in motion? What was the outside force? Oh a brillant light just went off...maybe just maybe the outside force was the creator of the universe....God himself. True science agrees with the Bible. See Genesis 1:1,2
1&#8194;In [the] beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
2 Now the earth proved to be formless and waste and there was darkness upon the surface of [the] watery deep; and God’s active force was moving to and fro over the surface of the waters.
Ah ha the outside force was God's active force.

Big Bang. Google it.

Also, there is a fallacy in your post. If we do not yet know the answer to a question it you cannot simply insert "God" and have it be true. Even if every single thing we thought we knew about the universe is proven wrong today you still would not be any closer to having proof of god.

You need actual *evidence FOR God* to have evidence for a god.

The Bible does not tell us how long it took Satan the Devil to talk Eve into a rebellion against the God of the universe. HE USES THE SAME TACTICS TODAY! 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself keeps transforming himself into an angel of light. 15 It is therefore nothing great if his ministers also keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness. But their end shall be according to their works.
Lets asume that the bible is real, Satan gave us free will by talking eve in to eating the fruit of knowledge and Satan killed no one in the bible. jehoava got pissed that we gained free will and killed 25,000,000, people...who is the evil devil?

Eternal life without free will and existing just to serve some vengeful god sounds lame. No thanks.

The christian cult wants to ignore the description of what heaven will be like for them in their bible. The bible says that they will lay prone in front of the throne and praise god non stop for eternity, a far cry from the paradise that they want to believe. No being with loved ones or having mansions, just on your knees praising god for ever and ever
Not for me

Secularism has nothing to contribute to morality, teach your children religion if you want them to be good.

Interesting SCIENTIFIC factoid of the day-(or Modern day "fire and brimstone rain".

“Asteroid 2012 DA14 will not impact Earth, but if another asteroid of a size similar to that of 2012 DA14 (about 150 feet across) were to impact Earth, it would release approximately 2.5 megatons of energy in the atmosphere and would be expected to cause regional devastation,” NASA said in a statement on its website.

In 1908, a massive explosion shook a remote region of Siberia and knocked down millions of trees over an 820-square-mile area. Experts concluded that the blast, known as the Tunguska event, was caused by the midair explosion of a 150-foot-wide asteroid falling to Earth.

>Implying you can't be a good person with morals if you're not religious

If all atheists left the United States, it would lose 93% of the National Academy of Science, but less than 1% of the prison population.

Look at Sweden and Denmark, who are predominantly atheist. Perfectly fine, peaceful countries... So if you're going to spew ignorance, at least somewhat back it up, you fool.

The Golden Rule is at least 3,300 years old, we got it from many religious traditions, not secularism.

Psalm 14:1 - "The fool had said in his heart there is no God. Their work is abomination, there is none that doeth good".

Yet you're sitting on a computer which was made by Alan Turning (homosexual Atheist), using Microsoft Windows which was developed by Bill Gates (Atheist, who's donated BILLIONS of DOLLARS to charity and science, trying to make the world a better place), & you're on the World Wide Web which was developed by Tim Berners Lee (Atheist).

Have a Facebook? Yeah, better delete that too... developed by Mark Zuckerburg (Atheist).

I, along with many others, was raised in a non-religious environment. I have perfectly fine morals. I respect people, the law, I contribute to society, I love animals, etc.

& the great thing is? I do this without having the delusional silver-lining that I'm going to a magical place up in the sky for doing good, I do good because I am a good person. I don't have the constant fear that if I mess up, or do bad that I'll burn in hell for all eternity, which is EXACTLY what your "morals from religion" teaches little kids: Fear, blind faith, the denial of critical thinking.

The notion that morality is exclusively derived from religion is ludicrous.

I try to help people anytime I can. I try to never do selfish things that help me at the expense of someone else.

If you really have no compassion for other people, and no desire to do good, beyond wanting to because you'll get something for it in the afterlife, you are screwed up.

Religions only over complicate morality. If you are doing what you need to be healthy, being a positive force in other people's lives and aren't bothering anyone else, you are doing it right. All the goofy rules beyond that are designed by people to manipulate others. It's stuff best ignored.

Yes, one day they may grow up to have morals like adolf hitler, who was a christian leader and hated atheists just like you do, he also wanted religion in school.

"Christians and not international atheists are now standing at Germany’s fore.
I confess that I will never ally myself with the parties which aim to destroy Christianity.
They have gone arm in arm with atheism.
Christian parties ruled side by side with those who denied the very existence of God.
Germany's entire cultural life was shattered and contaminated in this period.
It shall be our task to burn out these manifestations of degeneracy in literature, theater, SCHOOLS, and the press."

Ahhh, christians, they all think alike, believe like I do or die, morals? When did christianity get some?

Love love love, lmao.

This is a form of ad hominem argument called Godwin's law.

Hitler wasn't following or promoting christian doctrine, he had his own religion, National Socialism.

Next, "LOL in a suit" will be quoting him.

Hitler wasn't a Christian, he oppressed Christian denominations, ran a virtual war against the Vatican and murdered millions of Christians and Jews.
