Hell, I would be glad just to here some good philosophical arguments on it, much less have real evidence. I already know zero evidence exists of a god, so asking for some is pointless other than to show you none exists.
Pointing to a star is not evidence of how the star came to be. It is just pointing to a star.
I have read post in the past from you that state that God does not exist yet you did not provide the any proof. You only ask someone else to prove you wrong. That's not a debate....

Life was not designed to be either bitter or sweet. It just evolved that way. You see, if a god designed us, it would seem strange he would do so as we are. But it does not seem strange at all that natural forces evolved us to be as we are.

Or we can just wait for the rapture.

By your retarded reasoning, pointing to a car is evidence that I made that car.
I am not running from the debate, you are. This is evidence of your closed mind, and my open mind.
Of course you do not understand this because you are to stupid.
Your inability to spell leads me to the inevitable conclusion that your are indeed an idiot.

Rampant civil rights abuse my ass
Yeah I know, the bad white man held black back.
Have you ever noticed that black history month doesn't celebrate the achievements of blacks that achieved success before the civil rights movement.
How many times during black history month has the life of architect Paul Williams or the successful black writers of the 19th century been celebrated?
From 1870 to 1955 there was an outstanding black high school in Washington DC that had remarkable achievements. Again, before the civil rights movement.
If nothing else, some people get excuses for their on shortcomings and excuses are very important.
Excuses are better than achievements. Achievements, no matter how great leave you having to prove yourself again in the future. Excuses can last for life.
Look at the republican whine about how black history month is celebrated. As if you can know all of who is being shown for having great achievements or not.

Every republican I know complains about even having a black history month.

Your refusal to accept the evidence of GOD, which is all around you, leads me once again to the insurmountable conclusion that you are of low intelligence.

<quoted text>Well this is an old story, so I am not sure why you act as if it is the only news on government and religion in Uganda or breaking news.
Thank you for finally articulating what subject you wish to discuss. This really helps when you wish to have a discussion as I cannot read minds.
Now my question is, do you really wonder what I think of this? It does not take a mind reader to know my position on the seperation of church and state, as I articulate my thoughts on it regularly here.
Here in America, many laws remain on the books that make homosexual acts illegal. Now no one is being prosecuted for them these days, as the religous right is losing its power and would be pointed to as ridiculous as Uganda.
I thought you might have provided a fresh slant on the Uganda situation, but of course as usual your plodding intellect is incapable of insight, and you are only able to resort to trite insults and worn out put downs.You simply aren't bright.

I see you still use the word "proof" as if such a thing can be absolutely proven. Proof is a poor word to use in a debate, but I understand you are not well versed in the art of debate.

I can show evidences the likelihood of a god does not exist. One evidence would be is that prayer does not work.
But I suppose it depends on what god you are trying to show evidence of or against.
Can you show evidence the flying spaghetti monster does not exist?

Fresh slant? What is to slant? It is pretty clear cut to me. The Christian right hates homosexuals and thus does what it can to make it hard on homosexuals.
I see you have given no opinion on the matter at all, and yet you insult me for not giving a new slant on it. What a hypocrite.
Face it, you cannot debate your way out of a wet paper bag. You are useless here.

I see zero evidence of a god around me, just as science cannot find any evidence of a god in our universe. If anyone could find some, it could be taught in public science classrooms. The fact they cannot is evidence of the complete lack of evidence.

Why don't you pray to god for some evidence of his existence? If you can find some like this, we can test prayer at the same time.

You say nothing, you have nothing, you are simply stratified in your thought processes, incapable of original thought, merely substituting insult for insight.Pathetic, but expected.

What is up with these Sandy hook conspiracy theorists? Do these people think a person cannot do this on their own?
I would not be surprised if a few republicans here were believers in this conspiracy.

Democrats and republicans would be well advised to quit demonizing one another and engage in real conversation.

I see GOD in everything, Mike sees GOD in nothing.Mike doesn't believe in the existence of anything greater than himself, in point of fact Mike Duquette worships himself in a puerile act of meaningless egomania.I have no trouble with Mike's atheistic beliefs, on the other hand, Mike constantly attacks those of us who choose to believe.Mike is threatened by our faith, his constant attacks on faith show his basic insecurity.

Keep running from the debate Forest. It is great evidence of your closed mind.
I worship nothing. Keep on guessing, as you do not even have the balls to ask.
I believe in a lot of things greater than myself, but you keep on with the propaganda line of Christianity, because it is clear your mind is closed shut. The brainwashed you well.

Mike your high opinion of yourself as a"debater"is based in fantasy.I was waiting to give my opinion on the Uganda situation until after I had read your own opinion.I was disappointed at your typical knee jerk response, once again.You attempt to slant every situation to fit into your own narrow world view.For what its worth, I strongly support the separation of church and state.I find the Uganda situation deplorable.
