Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

When is your god going to stop punishing babies yet unborn for the Adam and Eve entrapment?

No I didn't. I described the petty misplaced anger of an incompetent leader.

A fallacy of your own thinking is that your bible says Adam and Eve weren't allowed to comprehend goodness before partaking of the tree of knowledge. Again, entrapment.

Why aren't you thinking?

You expose the fallacy in your own thinking with the fax machine example.
You describe a robot as the perfect creation, eliminating the most fulfilling elements of human existence: love and goodness.

God, on the other hand, eradicated a culture for exactly that kind of behavior...

1. You claimed a perfect creation would never fail. I exposed the fallacy of that claim.

2. You are confusing the innocence of Adam and Eve with the awareness of evil. "I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then."

Moreover, you are deliberately ignoring the influence of an outside force because you want to condemn God. A rational and unbiased person would be condemning Satan. Instead, you SIDE with Satan!

You expose your depravity once again.

Wait...how can you call "satan" an outside force in your mythology? Didn't your mythologies' creator create satan?

Are you now claiming that your mythology's creator is not perfect?

That's cool. If you want to believe that your creator is not perfect, then a lot of logical fallacies get cleared up - like the problem of evil, why there is malaria, etc.
Instead, you SIDE with Satan!

Uh...so you don't want a rational discussion but one where you accuse people who question your religion of siding with...what I can only assume is the bad deity in your religion?

If you believe that your deity is perfect, then your deity destroyed those fetuses - at the beginning of time, when you believe your deity created reality (and decided every single outcome from that time forward).

If you don't believe your deity is perfect, then you don't have to blame it for the death of anything, let alone fetuses.

You are being funny, right? Surely you're not that ignorant?
Genesis preceded science by thousands of years, describing the Big Bang right off the bat.
It notes that life began from the earth and was initially genderless.
How did a fiction book get core elements of creation so right?
Smile.
Genesis does not describe the Big Bang. Holy cow...if you believe that you probably don't know what "anachronistic" means.

Your mythology does not describe biology even slightly correct. You are projecting onto your translation of ancient Hebrew to pretend that your mythology jives with science.

It doesn't. I'm utterly shocked that an adult can believe that. Seriously shocked - did you advance in education beyond high school?

You know what baffles me, Thinking? Kimare, or whatever her name is, doesn't seem to know what "gender means." She seems to think it means "sex" as in male-female.

She would probably be surprised to hear that, almost as soon as multicellular life started, the sexes differentiated.

Woohooo, sex!

Don't tell her. She wouldn't like that.

It claims to be a hermaphrodite and human chimera, one that is totally against transgender and gay relationships. I think it's the only person who can claim to be a hermaphrodite and condemn gay people in the same paragraph. Another words a LYING pos TROLL!

Since around half of fertilised eggs just don't make it, your god is by far the biggest abortionist of all. But you're OK with that.

Which might explain why you commend a bible that says he drowned every baby not on the ark.

You assume the universe required a cause, but understanding the singularity requires you to understand it does not require a temporal dimension to exist.
Quite simply Einstein solved this riddle with general relativity, as space/time was created in the initial expansion of the universe. The singularity does not require time, but the big bang unleashed it. In human terms we require time and it is hard to imagine something that does not require it. But there is a set of conditions where a thing can exist where the arrow of time does not exist. See def no. 5.

You ..you...I expected a "youtube" lecture on how could , the Universe create itself ..

this link is just a definition of a word ..

Singularity , means nothing ...I merely ask where did matter ( and time ) energy AND consciousness originate ..from ...you Heathens seem to assert , It was magic ...

so much for your much vaulted logic ..you have none ..
