Nothing in the above? Is a actual argument.

Nothing.

The entire post above? Consists of whining, name-calling, belittling and personal attack.

Classic fail.

There you go!

The majority of Genuine Christians™ lack compassion utterly.

Proof?

They, as a group, represent one of the major oppositions to universal health care.

They, as a group, also appear to be against any sort of social support program, such as welfare, or school lunch programs.

I'm going by the actions of their Genuine Christian Leadership™, naturally.

Wouldn't that be a complete change from your usual crowd...
I've seen some of your gang, Muttonchops, and I'd rather hang with attractive freaks than the so-called "normal" dogs you sniff butts with.

How long have you been reading Bob's comments?

The first one should have been a pretty good hint about his mentality.

Once more? You cannot muster up counter-argument.
So you use your "skill" at name-calling instead.
Classic.
he statement is so stupid "Religion has no interest in science" is so stupid it is not worthy of a counter. You should just not be talking about this until you do some serious reading.

More personal attack.
More FAILURE to produce an ARGUMENT.
As for your last?
I have already proved your god isn't real.
1) quantum physics and relativity prove that an **omniscient** god is impossible-- such a being would collapse the universe, just by existing.
2) preventable evil in the world proves that there is no **caring** gods of any kind
2a) the existence of evil "holy" books which lead people to commit **great**evil**(bible, quoran, book of mormon, etc) is **also** proof that NO GOD WHO CARES EXISTS-- for allowing such evil to exist
3) the existence of steady human progress and discovery proves that there are no **evil** gods either.
4) all that are left? Are the UNCARING, INDIFFERENT AND UNAWARE gods.
Why bother with these lot? They don't care, they are unaware of humans... so there is no need to even acknowledge them at all.

There you go- summarized JUST FOR YOU.

"Not only will I tell you it is false." This is your statement after I pointed out that the God of the bible murders little babies. I then pointed out to you the PFOOF, and since that time.....no response from you. You said my accusations were false, I proved to you they were true, and this you call "Checkmate." Do you really enjoy making yourself look stupid?.....I guess so!!!!

We can certainly PROVE that the God you worship commits infanticide and genocide, those are easy. We can also prove without much trouble, how immoral your holy book is, and of course since it is supposed to be the world of your God, that your God is also immoral. It would take very like effort to prove how cruel and capricious your God is. So by saying we can prove nothing, makes you a bold faced liar. I thought lying was a sin, shame on you, on your knees now and grovel before your demon God asking for forgiveness. You Christians do love to grovel don't you!!!!

Would "religion has no value add for science" be more accurate?

I would say no, and suggest you do some reading. I could understand not liking religion, I, myself am a Pagan. You have to stay true to the discussion. Religion itself is a science. Throughout the years well educated people have gathered, and researched for advancement. I find it od to read people post, that have such a scornful hatred for religion. I would say it was blinding them, but I don't have that high of an opinion for these haters. I think they are idiots that think they know everything. The belief in knowing everything is a common cause of being stupid.

These are very stupid Atheist. I think the average atheist would have just left this tread alone. They would understand the ideas of this video below and choose another place to debate the theist.

Religitards are most likely to think they have all the answers, which is a common cause of being stupid.

The above? Is not an argument, fact or point.

Just whining and belittling of the poster instead.

It's your only move, it seems.

Yes... we know you have zero counter-argument here.

My point is valid: religion is the **opposite** of science.

Science seeks to **understand** the universe.

Religion seeks to re-fabricate it in it's wish-fulfillment image-- and will **deny** any and all facts that contradict religion's claims.

The two cannot co-exist peacefully-- religion will **always** be forced to **deny** science, as science proves over and over, that religion is just a big lie.

The above video is not in any way, shape or form, an argument.

Nor does it support you in any way. Naturally.
