No. Um, so what?
Never claimed I could.
<quoted text>
I never made that claim. Many things exist that we can't see, hear or touch.
I said if GOD exists, there would be evidence for his existence.
What makes god unique? God is supposed to be all powerful, ever present, all knowing, all that, AND involved in our lives, supposed to answer our prayers. Can't say that about the vacuum on the far side of Pluto.

Who could tell what it is, it is like a moving target. Each time you are proven wrong you simply change your story and claim to have never made the previous statement.

And it's silly to say I reached my conclusion that there is no god via faith. I reached it via evidence, or should I say, lack of any evidence.

There was a severe lack of evidence that Dinosaurs existed prior to their discovery, does that mean they didn't exist?

Any Mormon in the white house is dangerous.

Ann like ALL other mormons did NOT answer the question.

Just because he was serving a "Mormon Mission" shouldn't preclude a person from serving in the Armed Forces, so the question is STILL unanswered, WHY DIDN"T MITT PERFORM ANY MILITARY SERVICE?

To you mormon that think I don't know what I'm talking about know this in advance.

I was born and raised in LDS, SLC, Utah, and am VERY familiar with mormons and their inablity to answer a direct question.

I am talking specifically about the god described in the bible. If "god" can mean anything, there really isn't anything to discus.
Winston Smith wrote:
That doesn't mean one or many don't exist. Some of the founding fathers believed in God but didn't think he would waste his time meddling in the affairs of man. Does that one exist? If not can you prove it?
You could ask me the same question about elves. And I would give you the same kind of answer.
Don't know, but I have no reason to believe he does.
Winston Smith wrote:
Remember, a lot of what we know now wasn't known 50 years ago, more when you go back 100 years, still more when you go back 1000 years. No proof of these many things existed to hour knowledge. Yet they still were present.
I know. None of those things are infinite and involved personally in our lives.

So you have decided that the only possible "god" is the one described in a book written by man?
No, stupid. I didn't decide that. As I said *before*(several times), I'm talking about the god described in the bible. If "god" can mean anything, there is nothing to discuss.

And Glendora, California is so much better off since you voted for Tessitor and his gang of thugs?

Look around, a big building here, a big building there, nothing has changed for those business people on Glendora Avenue, what's going on with the antique lights on Glendora Avenue, traffic has gotten worse and worse, our mountains are littered with more and more homes and Tessitor misses so many city council meetings it's pathetic. Clifford and Herman ran for cover, why doesn't Tessitor get the message?

You seriously can't call Glendora the Pride of The Foothills anymore.

But if you ask Douglas Tessitor he is still a giant in his own mind. But it was a backroom effort RICO activity among other politicans and developers and bankers etc. and cities..

Look around, a big building here, a big building there, nothing has changed for those business people on Glendora Avenue.

What's going on with the antique lighting districts, traffic has gotten worse and worse, our mountains are littered with more and more homes.

Gary Clifford and Ken Herman ran for cover, why doesn't Douglas Tessitor get the message? Douglas the rats are leaving the ship.

No stupid, you didn't say that you were only talking about the "god" described in the bible until you were backed into a corner. In fact we have had this very same discussion with similar results when discussing the "creator" as described in the Declaration of Independence.

We know you have trouble with critical thinking. If it isn't in black and white, you can't comprehend it.

That's why so many call you ignorant.

I said it SEVERAL times. I wasn't backed into a corner. I had assumed people knew I was talking about the god of the bible and not Morpheus, or a bag of Doritos. My bad. So, I made it clear.
