Exactly, there is usually at least one tiny asteroid that is occasionally in a complicated orbit ( talking about a body a yard or 2 wide ) later to be shot back into orbit around the sun, only to collect another.

Calling those moons is disingenuous

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.
You're discounting the presence of God or gods based upon the things that mere mortals expect. 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?

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.

"And whatsoever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son." John 14:13
So you have decided that the only possible "god" is the one described in a book written by man?

But, as usual you simply pull things out of context, again showing your ignorance in trying to prove your nonsense.

"When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures"(James 4:3)

Also, just like you don't comprehend the meaning of "equal protection" in the 14th Amendment, you do not comprehend the meaning of "in my name" in this context.

There usually isn't anything to debate with you, you are usually wrong.

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?

If the Romney folks are upset that Whoopi asked Queen Ann the question they should have let Willard Mitt Romney borrow Queen Ann's spine and show up himself.
