I would require Evidence that could be studied, verified, validated, tested and reproduced .... The Human Species See's a tiny portion of the light spectrum, hears a tiny sliver of the audio spectrum and sense a tiny tidbit of the em spectrum all together... And then the species has the ability to rationalize the observed in irrational, illogical and many times completely Wrong ways...
A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign but there shall be no sign given. It would be just as wise to say I hope there is a God and a beautiful Heaven to go to after I die. Why do people fight and resist it so much? What would be so wrong with a beautiful Heaven to go to? If it is true that is all the better for all of us right? If not then you won't be any worse off than you are now would you? It is like getting raped.-- If you can't stop it and it's going to happen you may as well lie back and enjoy it. Right? There is always a way of looking at things differently. What do you have to lose? Are you worried about being scammed by God or something? When life is over what is the difference? I say better safe than sorry. You have nothing to lose if it's not true and a home in Heaven for eternity if it is. Who can possibly want to go to hell? That's just crazy thinking. As they say about the lottery, you can't win if you don't play. If you live this lousy life here on earth then miss Heaven too, you have lost it all. I say take a chance on it.

Any reference to magic underwear is just an attempt to make Mormons look stupid.
It sounds even stupider than the made-up imbecilic context of it too.

You having to resort to scare tactics shows that you do not believe in your god.
Hey, if you do not worship the swamp thing you will spend eternity as a swamp rat, do you want to take that chance?

Mormons claim Jesus is not God. How do you explain verse 28?

John 20:24-28 NIV

24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus[a]), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him,“We have seen the Lord!”

But he said to them,“Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”

26 A week later his disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said,“Peace be with you!” 27 Then he said to Thomas,“Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”

28 Thomas said to him,“My Lord and my God!”

I accept by your sarcasm that we have reached the practical limits of your argument. Again.

Since only your posts show up that way, and everyone else's looks normal, evidence would suggest it is not my equipment.
You've already made it clear that you don't know how the internet works, so what makes you think that you know in any way what evidence would suggest?

<quoted text>
How many eyewitnesses of a miracle are necessary for you to believe then?
As few as one. As many as seven billion. Stop trying to act as though I require some certain number of eyewitnesses in order to believe something. I never made any such claim. If you understand how science works, you should know the answer already.

<quoted text>
I just don't think atheists should use science to refute all points of why people are religious. They may not have all the evidence in yet.
No, you don't get it. It is YOU who do not have enough evidence to substantiate your claim. Atheists aren't making any claims. Atheists are only denying that there is evidence to support a claim. There is no burden of proof on an atheist. One day, perhaps, science might validate your beliefs. Until then, there is no reason to believe they are factual.

Better yet, the apostle intelligently says he won't believe it without proof. Then, when he gets proof )in form of irrefutable evidence), he believes. Why is it so wrong to have the same standard as an apostle?

"I do not believe a god spoke to you"
That's your problem isn't it?

God spoke Adam and Eve too... What part of "Do NOT eat" did they not understand?
.
God was RIGHT on... when He told me anything... including Obama!
Surely you can see it now... can you not?
Of course he did not specify the date. He left if vague enough for followers to make up crap out of thin air. They always seem to think it will happen in their lifetime, but obviously several billion thought wrong.
So you still do not like Obama? Who would have guessed? I still like him, how could you not guess this?

I do not believe in an Adam and Eve. I do not believe eating from the tree of knowledge is a bad thing.
I do not believe you know anything godlike.

Because when I leave this life I want to spend eternity in Heaven, not hell. These are not scare tactics. They are warnings for your benefit. Like a tornado warning. The sirens sound scary but it is to give you a chance to get to safety. It is coming. If you can honestly say you have intelligence, look at the way things are these days and still say the end of this world is not imminent then you are not as smart as you think you are. We are not talking about swamp rats, we are talking about you and me. If hell is real, do you want to go there? People don't think an earthquake will happen but they still buy insurance for some reason. That just in case thing.

Great point. The Bible actually does require evidence. Consider this verse.

1 John 4:1
Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
