Stop thinking you're clever and read carefully:
No matter how remote the probability of something occurring, so long as it CAN occur through circumstances describable by science, it is still an infinitely more likely cause than God. God does not even logically enter the discussion. And, in fact, if something happened that you think could NOT have occurred through circumstances describable by science, there is an almost infinite probability that you have bad information concerning the event. And for the final case, if something happened that you think could NOT have occurred through circumstances describable by science, and you have conclusive, examinable, and defensible evidence to support this claim, supply it (with the recognition that a lack of ability for known phenomena to produce the result is NOT support for the conclusion that God did it).
That last one has yet to happen here.
I responded because I assumed this was to me. I still can't see who you are replying to for some reason. It only happens with you and it had always shown yours before, so I don't have a clue why it doesn't anymore for just your responses.
So if this wasn't meant for me, sorry.

LOL! I bet you read this back to yourself in Leonard Nimoy's voice and thought "yeah...that's logical"

Oh, but we have...repeatedly. You're just apparently too dense to understand it. And that, is something no one can fix for you.

No, stupid. No. Stop making bullshit strawmen and drawing illogical conclusions from them.
We have no evidence for the existence of God, but I will believe once evidence is supplied. The bar is set no higher or lower than with any other thing we have no evidence for.

That is your opinion,not a proven fact.
No. That IS fact. You cannot determine a probability for something that we have no proof of existing being the cause of an event. What is the probability that Frosty the snowman made your alarm clock go off this morning? Is it not infinitely more likely that it happened through a circumstance describable by science?

An opinion for which you nor Science can provide any factual evidence,nor are qualified to comment on,since you did not experience them.
Science doesn't have to prove exactly what happened. All that matters is that you can logically and factually explain every part of the sequence of events. I did so. I showed how each thing could happen based on things we already know. I don't have to "prove" that it DID happen that way. The only alternative is that a being we have no proof exists did it magically. I soundly stomped all over the alternative "hypothesis". Highly probable, based on actual fact, and not contradicting what we know will ALWAYS win over highly improbably, based on imagination, and contradicting essentially all we know.

And it's not my problem if you're too indoctrinated to realize how the process works. I'm not the one making you look brain damaged.

If ye diligently seek me ,you will find me,,,,
Try that,and if it fails,then you will be better qualified to express your opinion on that subject.
If it succeeds,you will gladly admit that you were wrong.
Oh, so God can never be proven through science? Darn. How terribly inconvenient for my position. And yours, too, since science works on anything that physically affects the universe to a degree that can be observed and quantified. I guess I'll have to deal with only having medicine, computers, space travel, and all those other things that science provides. And you can go on believing in the existence of a God that has absolutely no measurable impact on the existence that we live in.

Good. I'm glad that you aren't irrational to the point of being dangerous (unlike those nutjobs that did not seek medical assistance for two sick children, who then died). I'll take displays of intelligence where I can get them. Though I still think you are delusional in your amazingly low standards of proof for certain things.
I heard an interesting quote recently, and I think it probably applies to you:
"Smart people are very good at rationalizing things they came to believe for non-smart reasons."

If you support the restrictions of the rights of a group of people different than you, they ARE broken. I don't care what you think. Every non-bigot agrees with me.

Oh no. You apparently have not been reading. One must do more than just believe. Faith without works is dead.
The bible does say that, I agree. Let say a person has no good works his whole life and on his death bed he repents and accepts Jesus. Will he be accepted by God, according to your understanding?

A hate crime across the states is a federal crime.
Death threats like this are serious crimes, hope that you get along good with big Bubba
Why thats just crazy! I intended to invite you to church, have you lost your mind? Why are you so scared? You wanted my address, and one could presume that was a threat; but now you are scared? I don't get it? How could you imagine a hate crime, since you profess so much hate for people who belive in God, is that not a hate crime? I just offered you help, and now you are so scared! So sad, so very sad! HAHAHAHA. At least now you have proven yourself!

You do not know about IP addresses and MAC addresses do you? Everything can be traced back to your computer.
And I would say that you are the one who is scared, which is all I wanted, you are not worth my time complaining about your threat HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
