All your blathering and wall-of-senseless-words?
And you didn't mention THAT possibility.
Fail.
That could be the most stupid post I ever read. But I'll treat it as a theory. A THEORY!!!!! Not proven. A THEORY!!!! OMG, it really is not worthy of being called that but, for the sake of argument. you can't prove that, therefore... be lucky I call it that. And that is a THEORY. theory.

Your bigotry is duly noted-- you just implied you think President Obama is "worm meat".
Bigot.
No Obama is not an atheist. Atheism sucks as bigotry, well if that's not you admitting it is a religion than what is.

I really love this. Instead of admitting you can't prove how The Universe started. You claim The Universe has not started. I hope I am awake when it does.

So what? It's a free speech forum.. people are free to indulge in whichever subject they wish.

**YOU** certainly wander all over the place, subject-wise!

You really have no need-- I can infer your ugly beliefs from your hateful attitude, your snide remarks, your continued attempts to stalk me down and make unsavory comments about me.

That?

That says all I need to, about what you believe.

And it's not good.

I get it-- anything you don't like, or that goes against your Gawd?

You think is "stupid".

Gotcha.

Even though you cannot muster up a COUNTER-ARGUMENT.

Nope. I'll donated to a medical facility as a medical cadaver, and then cremated.

At no time are worms involved.

But your bigotry and hate is duly noted.

Your hate is strong... I can almost feel it oozing from you.

Obviously, you are unfamiliar with the word "start".

And just as clearly, you do not read my WHOLE comment:

I said the universe **may** have existed **in some other form** before the present one.

That means, it ALWAYS WAS in one form or another.

Eliminating your stupid god, of course---- which is why you think it's "stupid".

Your massive EGO demands a god.

It's not a 5 incher.
Your NDE experience. More details on it. I seem to remember you having a dream where you were in another place totally removed from what was actually occurring to you. Everything was symbolic. You are basing your belief on that dream. Recollection of the details of your thinking at the time would be nice. Were you aware you just died?
I was highly aware of just what happened in my case, and the immediate surroundings. That scene I was about to step into may have been a "dream" like this one I had woken up from.
If you are a material conscious only thinking being the death process is not going to be so nice adrifitng off into sweet dreams. You have the circuitry of your thought process breaking down piecemeal. Your higher thought and control will be overridden by the Klaxon horns set off by your lower level brain circuitry, the more autonomic ones. They MAY be what initiates those "dreams" with chemicals, but you have to consider there is no reason for nature to have developed such a clean way to go, and that those dreams do require a lot of organization to even occur. A few seconds of seeming coherency is an awful lot of structured EM resulting in "thought". Especially when the machine producing it is failing.
Oh yes, I remember that. You'll have to excuse me, the way you blather on and jumping from one subject to the other interspersed with your delusions of adequacy and self serving lies, makes you difficult to talk to.

Nothing you say is remotely important enough to backtrack and look up, so I'll give you a quick recap.

I had a dreamlike state that felt very real at the time. Neurons misfiring, physical sensations influencing the last vaguely coherent thoughts of an oxygen starved brain, etc., etc. Nothing was symbolic. When I woke up (when the brain began receiving a sufficient supply of oxygen again) I realized it was a dream, connected the dots and got busy with the business of living again. You, on the other hand still believe that your dream (hallucination)was real. Pity to be you.

Your 3 BIG Myths:
1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.
For some strange reason theists are happy to believe an incredibly powerful and intelligent entity can just exist without explanation but the universe can't. That makes no sense.

Put simply, if the universe needs a creator then the creator needs a creator.
If the creator doesn't need a creator then why should the universe?
Invoking a God solves nothing, If anything he's harder to explain.

Give it up you liars, you people are pathetic. You have thousands of years to produce even 1 atom of evidence, and you fail again and again.

You come here shouting at us why we don't believe you, when its you who are the lunatics that bother innocent people.

Just take your cult and do the honest thing which is f*ck off back into your cesspit of ignorance.

8 Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden.
21 The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them.
Seems your Troglodyte tale, puts it back down to Earth.
Hard to dismiss the facts, none of which you will find in the cave mans science book off creation. So you hide your god in every niche you can think of, but cannot get it to walk amongst men, nor to present a garment of skin or anything else for that matter.
But we can get you to fantasize that the story is true, inventing in your mind ever increasingly complex reasons why it is so.
Rather than face the truth, that it wasn't really a lie, but an artful explanation by Troglodyte's. It was their story of creation , in the cave mans book of science. Written by those who had no idea what the truth really was. But invented one they could tell to set their children's minds at ease, come nightfall around the fire.
