Some Atheists(myself being one) do not like to use the term "I believe" instead they(I) say "I think" or "I know" or several other terms.

Therefore god exists.

I didn't answer your question because it's stupid and irrelevant. You can't spell, can't form proper sentences, and you use about three times as many commas as any same person ever would. You don't get to claim anything in this universe is "not logical". You don't get to make some poorly typed "I know you are but what am I" statement in response to being called a moron.
I'll make this very simple. You are a 1. Unless you have a problem with being declared a 1, then you can tell me which other number you are.
I welcome any other more rational people, regardless of belief, to actually respond to what I asked.
Yeah I've noticed that about you. Anytime a question is posed,that puts you between a rock and a hard place,knowing that to respond,will destroy your argument,you opt to insult and claim the question is irrelevant. You do not have the courage of your convictions....
As far as the insults,It does not matter,I've been insulted by better people than you....I have ignored them to
When you cannot Debate in a civil ,intelligent manner,it's because you suspect,with good reason,that you are losing the argument.
That is confirmed by the faCT THAT,YOU HAVE LOST YOUR TEMPER.

This is a lie right here. I didn't start insulting you first and you know it. You decided to join a conversation that was already in motion and immediately started calling people idiots, morons, and nutjobs.
But anyway, I've halfway learned how to ignore the childish insults, so I was trying to ask.
No, it's not a lie. You weren't insulted until you insulted me by misrepresented my positionor lying to me. Go look.

Let me ask again.
Since humans couldn't have come into existence before the solar system, and I thought you'd make that correlation, let me ask you how you think stars and planets came to exist and mingle with each other in gravitational fashion? Then how did humans form from amino acids?
And, what started the chain of events? And do you think this randomly happened or there could have been an intelligence behind it all?
There are many theories out there about these things, I realize that, but I'm asking you what you believe.(And yes Crom Man, I'm using that word for simplicity)
Oh, so all you want an explanation from the first second of the universe until the first human walked the planet. That's all?

You don't want much, do you?

Why don't you narrow it down a bit, because I'm not typing a library on Topix just because you don't know. I will say that there is a great deal of consensus on most of the things you are asking, and that my examination of the evidence and underlying theories doesn't give me any reason to disagree. But really, beyond that, there is no way to make a reasonably short answer to your questions. If you can form more pointed questions, I will try to answer later.

Take the word "or" out and you have a decent answer.
Can you answer the real question the same way?

Everyone answered your question.... Just because you do not understand the answers or they are not your preconceived notion of what the answer should be you ask for another answer....

In my case I gave you a link to a answer that started from the first real physical particle that converted out of the unified energy form that still exists as a inverse tensor force and explains Everything to how complex live forms self organized....

Wow. I'm a bit disappointed. I share my beliefs on creation, before creation, and after death and then deal with all of you making fun of me for weeks.

I ask you all how you think everything came into existence and all I get is a rash of crap about how I asked the question and how stupid I am for trying to ask it. Really?
How are your responses any better than "God dun it" (as you summarize my beliefs)?

Well, scientific studies have produced solid theories, you would call those "answers," to how the vast number of species came into being and how evolution and natural selection played a valuable role in this happening. They have also discovered where all the heavy elements came from, we often call those "dying stars" but in reality they are not truly alive thus they don't really die, they just sort of explode, spewing their insides all over the universe and then collapsing into what we call black holes. We have learned that certain elements react to electricity in very predictable, and useful ways, which has lead us to develop technology called computers around these very useful elements. We know that viruses make you sick now. We know that the brain works on chemical reactions which produce electrical impulses. We know that emotions are chemical reactions to external stimulation.

We know a lot more, all of which would never have been known if they had just said "god dun it" and left it at that. No imaginary being instructed them to find these actual answers, no all powerful being kept these answers from them, they did it all on their own, the ones that figured all of this out. If we just accept one non-answer we will never find any real answers.

It cannot be removed, because something created cannot be the result of natural processes, they are exclusive.

I realize all those things. But how, or which theory, do you think it all began?

1) Mike Duquette"] If you think I have not looked for evidence, you do not understand a single post I have made here on this thread.

Ok, I stand corrected

2) My statement simply showed most believers are hypocritical when they ask if I have looked for god.
Can you show I have not looked for a god?

No,I can not,I made an assumption....my bad

3) but you certainly admit not looking for certain gods and have not looked at certain claimed prophets for truth.

That is correct and,here are the reasons. Zeus is a proven myth. All that is written about him is based on mythology. Some of Mohammed's followers have committed" incredible
deeds that most of us can not even begin to comprehend" as you stated. Based on these deeds,,which were committed in the name of Allah and Mohammed's teachings,I feel no need to study their techings,

4) If real evidence of a god existed, no one would need what is known as faith to be religious

What real evidence would you require that would prove to YOU that God existed?
AND
Since we do not all think alike,What if the evidence provided to you,was not sufficient,to convince others? What happens then?

.5) From what I can tell, all claims of evidence of a god are just mind games. Anyone that understands how the mind works knows these are just games, not reality.

Can you explain that in more detail,precisely,what do you mean by "anyone who knows how the mind works,knows these are just Games

6) Anyone who can see all religions use the same mind game to claim truth can see some must be false. I am sure you claim Islam is false. I am sure the 9/11 terrorists thought they had the same sort of evidence of a god as yourself.

I don't believe so, Jesus taught forgiveness,not revenge.
Scripture Says 'Beware of false prophets,who come to you in sheep's clothing,but inwardly,they are ravenous wolves.
I take that to mean,Do they follow Christ's teachings,or do they not.By their fruits you will know them.
Not everyone that saith unto me,Lord,Lord,shall enter into the kingdom of heaven,but he that doeth the will of my father in Heaven.I am very,very careful as to whom I trust.
I test that trust ,and that trust will grow or diminish depending on the results of my testing.
My trust and faith are not based on my emotions,nor are they based on the actions or fanaticism of others

7) They trusted this evidence so much they did an incredible deed that most of us cannot even comprehend how one can do such a thing.
And you wish for me to use that same sort of faith? No,and that is not the faith I adhere to and I don't believe I've ever said that I wish that you would use that,or any other faith.

I don't think your fight is against atheist (they don't believe god exist"). I do see that your faith is strong and others who don't think you have the true church have not called you out for your beliefs that is contrary to their own. The religious ones claim that atheist are swine and dogs that you should not waste your time with.

The bible says that they are to correct false teachings about Jesus and the bible doctrine. I do not see them swinging the sword of truth against you, they are silent.

Based on what I found you are the top watchman, other religious ones cannot debate with you and are afraid.

When teaching false bible teachings:

Galatians 1:8
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God's curse!

See how other Christians are weak in response to your beliefs.

2 Corinthians 11:4
You happily put up with whatever anyone tells you, even if they preach a different Jesus than the one we preach, or a different kind of Spirit than the one you received, or a different kind of gospel than the one you believed.

Talking about religious doctrines

1 Timothy 1:3
As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain people not to teach false doctrines any longer.

False Christians posting here.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15 ESV

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.

Those who believe they have the truth do not have the courage to test the doctrines of others that I can see here on Topix. I'm disappointed by this. See below.

1 John 4:1 ESV

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
