Your God is imaginary,MUQ. Otherwise,you could have bombarded this thread with loads of evidences or logical explanation that would counter our intuitions.
You believe God has created us for a specific purpose.We believe it is we who decide the meaning of our lives.And our lives themselves are biggest evidences of our belief.
But there is no reasonable explanation from you so we could weigh your arguments.
You believe God has created the universe.Yet there is no proof or logical explanation as to why universe must have needed a conscious creator.
I have seen you arguing somewhere that universe is an "intelligent design"(maybe some posts ago in this thread).
What do you mean by an "intelligent design"?

My parents created me, as your parents created you.

Go back millions of years and you find amoeba, add evolution, you have your answer.

Darwin, Newton, Einstein, men of learning, inteligent men that asked questions, proposed theories, found answers.

I asked you for proof or evidence of the existence of your god, the fact that you can't supply it is all to obvious.

Suggesting that I am dumb is projection on your part, it does not strengthen your position, it weakens it.

Haha!Do you think your above argument would even be considered in a debate of intellectuals?
Again and again,you are repeating the same thing.
I am asking you man as to why a conscious creator has to be there behind everything that is physically existing?
Have you ever asked your revered Mullahs or yourself as to why things couldn't have come into existence without any conscious creator.
Ask and let us know why do you think so.
Existence is not necessarily a result of creation.If you think otherwise you have to give a logical explanation( in case you don't have evidences) for the same.

Your parents were "not even aware" when you were conceived!!

Is that what you call creation?

Your parents, were not aware at the time of your conception, whether it is a boy or a girl. Is THAT what you call creation?

Your parents did not know whether you will be born full or with some defect, is THAT what you call creation?

I thought you people had brains, but it shows that you people have none or very little and whatever you have, you use it wrongly.

Grow up and use your brain.

Only IDIOTS will ask for proofs of existence of God, while seeing the entire working Universe is front of them!!

Who created this Universe? Newton, Darwin or Einstein ?

If things could "come out" without any creator, show me even a single needle, that came out of itself from any steel manufacturing facility!!

And Muq thinks others are stupid, LOL!

Perhaps Muq is an example of how religion can cripple the little capacity for critical thought and objective reasoning some people are born with.

Ha ha Silly and childish argument!!!!
"Nothing in this universe has been ever created.All the man made objects are just manipulation of the material that were already available in nature"
The above paraphrased quote was quoted by you quite long ago.And I concur with this statement
But now your new statement is in contradiction with your early statement.And I find your newer argument counter-intuitive.
If needles can exist without actually being created(just by manipulation) then why universe might not have come into existence without the creation of energy(in other words energy has always been there)?
You believe in your religion because that is what you want to believe.There is no logical reason behind your firm belief in your religion.

Metal needles.

"Metal whiskering or tin whiskers is a phenomenon or fault which occurs in electrical devices. Tin whiskers were noticed and documented in the valve (tube) era of electronics early in the 20th century, in equipment which used pure, or almost pure, tin solder in their production. It was noticed that small metal hairs grew between metal solder pads causing short circuits. Tin whiskers form in the presence of compressive stress. Zinc, cadmium, and even lead whiskers have been documented.[1] Many techniques are used to mitigate the problem including environmental modifications to the annealing process (heating and cooling) and the addition of elements like copper and nickel to the tin.[2] Traditionally, lead has been added to slow down whisker growth."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whisker_%28metal...

How to grow your own needles.

In a cup or small, deep bowl, mix 1/2 cup of epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) with 1/2 cup of hot tap water (hot as it will get from the faucet).

Stir about a minute to dissolve the epsom salts. There will still be some undissolved crystals at the bottom.

Place the cup in the refrigerator. The bowl will fill with needle-like crystals within three hours.

Look at your gods lack of documentation - no proof whatsoever. Maybe you hate creationism and want us all to know how stupid it's followers are? Is that why you are here?

It's called "thighing", look it up you piss poor dumfock, and know that your god sanctions it. If you would like to deny that this is true, lets go there. Bring it, fool. But know that I will post the details of this god protected practice, that will make any real human being sick to their stomach.

The filth that is the Abrahamic god's religions must be spotlighted and be made public. That is the only way to begin to change the "don't know, don't ask, don't look, don't tell" nature of religious usury foisted onto infants and children. Do you know how old a child must be before he or she is used as an adult man's masturbatory aid?

The baby has to have at least cleared his mothers body before the man's penis makes contact. Still amusing, to you? Did you look it up, or are you too chickenshit?
