If you honestly believe that you are so much more intelligent and superior than everyone else, why do you waste it all arguing with us "idiots" on Topix? If we are so far beneath you that we are wasting your time, why aren't you doing something more constructive with your time?
If you work more with science in one day than any of us do in our entire lifetimes, why haven't we heard your name associated with the cure of a disease?
Why don't you run for office and turn our environment into the utopia that you claimed to be able to create?
You wanted someone to show you where you are stupid? There you go. If you are really a super intellect, then you are stupid for wasting all your time and energy proving to us all what moronic, idiotic, wastes of oxygen we are.
Why does your god not cure disease? Why does he sit and do nothing while billions suffer horribly and die an early death due to disease?
By your earlier logic, no one should work to cure disease because we need all this massive suffering in order to learn how to be good people.
Sorry but the logic meter is going crazy.

Where did god originate?
Again, why does it matter so much to your religious beliefs were amino acids originated? If we showed you indisputable evidence of where they came from and it was not a god, would you disavow god?

Haha
No I'm being a smart alic right now, but if you look back at earlier comments I've made, I don't deny science. I don't deny the idea of evolution, I just believe that God had a hand in it.
I don't believe the earth is 6000 years old. I believe creation happened over creation periods, not 6 actual days, etc.
I don't believe that things happened by chance. I believe that God had a plan, and He executed that plan.
And I believe that since He has the power and ability to create all that we can see (and even things we cannot see), then He can reattach an ear rather easily.
It just amazes me that people think everything came to be the way it is today, by chance. And if it did, what started it all? Will it self destruct at some point and start again on its own? What would it be like if it did?
Well it certainly will self destruct, as that is what solar systems do. And yes, it can thus start a new one, as that happens all the time. Pretty basic science these days.

So you believe the exact words of the bible meant something other than what they are? Great. Now apply that to all the words of the bible.

Besides the fact so many believers wish to make law due to superstitions of the bible, so many wish to claim evolution is not true. Now maybe if your prophets wrote the bible a bit more carefully, we would not have such a problem.
But the battle between creationism and evolution is real, even if you are somewhere in the middle. It is a reason many atheists argue against religion.

Until this moment, you have done nothing but argue against any possible claims of science being true. So until now, you have been on the wrong side of this battle as far as I am concerned.
You perpetuate the idea god must have created all and denigrated the concepts of science.

If what one feels when they think about their superstitious beliefs were "evidence", then all superstitions have "evidence". But of course what you call evidence is not evidence.
1)Most of us have been believers at one point in our lives, so we know what "evidence" you claim.

I don't know what evidence you based your beliefs on and I am not sure that you understand the basis for my beliefs and faith.

I have often posted the reason for my beliefs and I will post the again and you can compare them to your beliefs and see how they match up.

Let me start with responses to prayers and the reason why I prayed to God for a response.

I had problems that I was unable to resolve and though I wished that they could be resolved,they were not,I was neither able to solve them or wish them away.

The prayer that resulted in the return of my dog;

The results did not convince ,maybe it was a coincidence..maybe not...The events that took place,TO ME,were very perplexing.
Subsequently I've had to face other problems that I could neither solve or wish away.

I turned to God again and my prayers have been answered,time after time,within the same hour when I was praying or within a day
Now God said,before they are through talking,I will answer their prayer,

I understand that to mean that,God will create a way to solve the problem as I am praying,as he understands my needs without my having to voice them;
MATT 6;7And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them,
FOR YOUR FATHER knows what you need before you ask him

So,given that,I have tested God's instructions and achieved the results he said I would,my faith in him has been strengthened.

In effect,if someone keeps their word and delivers on their promise,time after time,you learn to rely and trust in that person,in this case God
I do not see him,but,I can not argue with the results,because they are there for me to see.
They are not an illusion or a figment of my imagination...They are evidence that someone,somehow,heard my prayer and answered it.
The answer did not come about as a result of wishful thinking,my emotions had nothing to do with the results,neither did my feelings..
Now,those who may not have had those experiences,may find it difficult to understand and try to explain the results ,based on what they think,not on what they know,
I base my faith based on what I know as a result of my experiences.
Anyone trying to explain these events,based on what they think,without ever having experienced them,
is not qualified to state an explanation,
If one does not understand something,then,one is not qualified to explain it
If one basis their opinion on only believing that which they want to hear and only hear what they want to believe,they are automatically disqualified,,,,That type of analysis is illogical.
Space restrictions will not allow me to answer your questions fully.
If you want to know why I believe GOd speaks to me and how he does that,let me know.I will give you an answer
PS My illiterate monkey comment is to be ignored. That was my sarcastic response to a sarcastic comment made by the now invisible and can not be found SP

Ah yes, the christian "love," such an excellent display of it.

That aside, you present no evidence that your god is real, thus, it's not.

You want me to base my response on christian love,while you feel free to make idiotic comments on a subject that you do not understand.
Not able to understand,you base your response on your ignorance,not on your knowledge of the subject.
If you want to insult me,be ready for a reply that you will not like...
If you have nothing constructive to say,then,mind your own business...

Oh goodie! Now the christian ninth commandment broken, how cute you are when you are called to support your claims.

Oh, and bring your "A game" if you want to get into insults. Hint: calling someone stupid or a moron is not an insult.

That was not the basis for my response and you kmow it.
and I don't need or want an A game.
My faith in God is sufficient unto itself

LOL
Again,you state an opinion,without knowledge on the subject

I am not cute,I am amazingly handsome,,,
As a matter of fact,before I becam a Christian, I thought I was God's gift to the world

Now that I am a Christian,I KNOW who God's gift to the world is.
and it ain't me....

Wow, you don't know much at all do you. Do you even know what Google is? Google translator is a fun piece of code, and it works well. Do you even know what "demonstrating an education" means? I mean, you could Google translate that if you need to.

Hey,since this website is very quiet right now,I will humor myself by carrying on an unintelligent conversation with you.

Have they returned to their rooms at the mental asylum?

So...can even ONE Christian PLEASE answer this question? JUST ONE!!!
I come on here to ask it every once in a while, but I never get an answer, just some good ole Christian name-calling and bashing.
Here goes...again:
For those of you who have children, WHAT would a child of yours have to do for you to place them in a box, pour gas on them, and then light them on fire?
You couldn't? BUT your God can! But He loves you. Now that is some funny stuff.
