YOU HAVE NEVER given a comprehensive reason for believing in any God as a creator, or if you did it was long lost in your tired daily dirge about how evil and miserable you "think" non-believers of (your) religious dogma are.
I found a marble in my yard - I didn't put it there and I can't prove that God didn't put it there. I have no evidence whatsoever that a child dropped it - therefore God MUST have put it there for me to find and give glory to Him for it as proof that He exists, because nothing that happens is without His Purpose. Doesn't that about sum it up, curious, YaA, KF?
In your case ,if you found a marble in your yard and were unable to account for it , you'd better count the ones in your head and see if any are missingt . You Atheists are noted for losing your marbles.
You in particular , always seem to be missing a few marbles and it is doubtful you ever had a shooter.

"It's been pointed out innumerable* times that there does not have to be a "if not God, then who?" except in the damaged brains of religies who cannot fathom anything else."

It has also been previously pointed out that natural processes have never and (still) do not now require Yahweh's, Allah's, Brahma's, Odin's, Zeus', Rosch's or the Governing Body's approval or intercession - either separately or en masse. You don't seem willing or able to retain what you don't write (or cut and paste) in support of your own morbidly obese opinions.

It really depends on which version of the bible you pick up. There are plenty of translations where verse 10 reads that Gos repented of the "destruction" he said he would do.
So if you go by that, then the prophecy was indeed about Ninevah being destroyed.
In any event, what is interesting is that you've had to admit that not only does your god change his mind (what he says he will do does not always happen) but also that your god repents.
Here's hoping that curious doesn't read this as he claims that his god does not repent. That's despite the existence of plenty of scriptures that quite clearly say that God does repent.
Looks like curious doesn't believe everything he reads in the bible.
Not the King James, it says conquered.

God does not repent he gives a promise to save those that do repent (including Jonah).

The promise goes back to Abraham.

Truthfully I am not supposed to talk with people like you. You are to be allowed 3 opportunities to hear the Gospel then I walk.

Plus it seems you are a boring waste of time with very little knowledge of scripture.

Let us get back to the begining as that is the place where you all started ducking for cover.
I believe that in the begining God created the heavens and the Earth and Life.
I believe that these events were created by an intelligent designer.
All you Atheists claim that I am wrong , yet NONE OF you dared to present your alternative as to how these events may have occured.
All you can say is that A God is not needeed ,Well then ,tell me what you believe is needed.
Either you can't tell me or you don't dare tell me.....
Your faith is not worth defending as none of you are capable of doing so.
You post excuses ,smokescreens and gibberish...And that includes ALL of you.
Dukett ,Chroe , Krak , Lodi ,Witchetty , BOX ,Spacedout ,lol is soot , some of these are duplicates and you know who you are....
Have the courage to defend your beliefs . Do not lower yourselves to claiming that atheism is not a faith , hiding behind that lie in order not to have to defend what you are incapable of defending.
If you can't defend it , it's not worth believing ,,, Atheism is a Faith ,,,,,,,,,,not worth defending
I believe in the beginning, no god could exist without it being created somehow.
You keep searching for all the answers man wishes to know, but as of yet, cannot know. But for some reason, you assume the answers man made up in ancient times is correct, yet you have absolutely zero evidence to back up the claim. You believe in the god of the gaps of information.

So your point was refuted with logic and reason, so you diverted and ran like a lunatic. You are a joke.

The JW organization is fully aware, if you talk with people that are not brainwashed, you may lose your own brainwashing. It is a textbook brainwashing technique. It is a testament to the brainwashing religion does. It wishes you to be willfully ignorant.

I thought we showed you that time god repented for creating man so poorly?

Some of which is unknown you say . Tell me about the part that is known . Your staement is meaningless.
Don't need to provide proof for what I believe ,all I have to present are the reasons for my beliefs , which I have done , as you well know.
I have no problems in presenting my reasons ,whereas you Atheists go to great lengths to avoid presenting yours..
Take your fantasies to Disney World , Neither Stellar evolution or evolution have the slightest idea as to how life and the universe were created or who ,what or how this was accomplished.
Neither does abiogenesis........
The fact is that either we are here because of intelligent design or..........something else is responsuble,,,,,What is that something else? Or nothing is responsible?
And so far , the Atheists response to this question is NONSENSE and GIBBERISH
Atheism is a non belief. Atheism describes what it does not believe in, and that includes the god you keep talking about. We have given many reasons for our disbelief. You are just asking for one more reason.Well you do not dictate the reasons a person has for non belief.

You told us why you believe, and we told you why we do not believe. They need not be related.

Your analogy is nosensical ,stupid and based on ignorance.
What I am claiming is that the universe and life were created by an intelligent designer /GOD.
You do not believe in my God or any other God.Therefore your beliefs and faith are based on there being no Gods.
Which takes us to the question , If God or Gods are not the creators , then who or what is.?
Is No thing the creator?
The problem that you atheists have created for yourselves and from which try as you might ,you can not escape is that " You have no reasonable or viable explanation.
You can not defend your Atheistic faith that God does not exist or even give a reasonable alternative.
You give excuses ,nonsensical arguments and absurd denials but, you can not give a credible response in defense of your worthless Faith . If it's not worth defending ,it is worthless
Stop with the nonsense about claiming there are elephants in the room and unicorns.
That has absolutely nothing to do with what ,whom or how life and the universe came into being....
You keep asking for a reasonable alternative to your unreasonable idea. It makes no sense a god could exist. You cannot explain how a god could exist, so you cannot claim it made everything and expect that to be a complete answer.
Our answers are also incomplete. As it may never be known just how it all started. The only difference between you and I are, you believe an answer ancient men made up to fill the gap of knowledge. I have objections to that answer, just as you object to the idea it could just be natural.

Sista's been tutoring you on how to make witty and relevant comebacks, hasn't she? It doesn't matter, since I see no prospects for your understanding the difference between a marble and mere garble.

I think you need a new mentor. Have you considered typing, "God is REEAAL!" (in a Don Knotts voice) or maybe cutting and pasting pages from The Watchtower?

Actually, I'm not aware of that. If you stated those reasons to other posters, at other times, that doesn't mean anything to me.
<quoted text>
Actually, we've provided reasonable natural explanations. What have you provided? "Magic"?
Yeah , I've seen those natural explanations , What or who caused the big Bang.....We don't know,
What are the origins of life ,intelligence and consciousness ,,, We don't know

No, we don't know. And saying "we don't know" is an honest answer. Making up an answer "God did it" is not honest. It's making stuff up.
Curious wrote:

The origin of life is not known either, but we know various mechanisms by which organic material forms. Intelligence and consciousness are products of brains, which evolved.

What's confusing about that? Water is made from two common elements: hydrogen and oxygen. It is a common byproduct of star formation.

Haven't we already discussed that cause and effect is meaningless "prior to" the existence of time? I remember when it was pointed out that hydrogen and oxygen are two of the most abundant elements in the universe and that the Earth's hydrology and biosphere are protected from the solar wind by a magnetic shield generated by another of the most abundant elements in the universe.
Oh, right... I keep missing your rule that what you don't post or approve is beneath notice and disposable except for purposes of sarcasm and ridicule.

Humble yourself and repent of your blasphemy by twisting the scriptures

Perhaps you should read the entire Chapter to see how God sorted it out. He kept his promises.
