Do you really enjoy making yourself look stupid?.....I guess so!!!!
Yes... he does not "do" arguments.

The entirety of his posting-style is to belittle, name-call and scream "IS NOT" over and over.

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.
Is anything in the above provable or an actual... argument?

No?

Interesting.

The video is bullshit.

It's very first point? Wrong-- it's the same bullshit "you cannot create something from nothing" non-argument.

The Big Bang does not **claim** "something from nothing".

That is a strawman religious bullshit ploy-- and it IGNORES a fatal flaw:

From whence came their god, if you cannot make something from nothing?

If they can excuse their god as "always was" then so can we-- the universe always was in one shape or another.

The video it bullshit-- just like you.

You are confused about the difference between obedience to men and obedience to a deity.
You are also confused about compassion. You have too many morality issues to be a truly objective scientist. You observe and measure by your own yardstick. It isn't calibrated to the greater reality.
How can anyone get confused about the definition of compassion????

You probably think that is a witty question to ask. That is something you would have to ask yourself, not me. You are the one stuck on a god working that way, I'm not. Perhaps you are use to hearing voices, I myself would never trust a voice in my head.

I will ask you a question. If you had an adult son and you were out with him, and he got into an altercation with someone, would you kill him if he pulled a knife or gun with the intent of killing that other person just out of anger? There is no threat to his life. Would you kill your own to protect another human being?

I didn't think that was a "witty" question... just a question actually. I'm not stuck on anything actually. In the old testament it's written that god asked his followers to kill their children so it's not a question of whether or not a christian god works that way... the christian god does work that way. lol...I do not hear voices, as I'm sure you don't either as you stated. However that does raise the question of how you "hear" your god "speak" to you. My question to you however still stands, If your god asked you to kill your children or a stranger, would you?

If I'm understanding you correctly... your question to me was... If I had an adult male son who was attempting to murder someone for no good reason and I was a witness to that, would I kill my son in order to save that persons life? I don't have any kids, but I think if put in that situation I would probably try everything that I could to stop my son without killing him. I would not want to kill my child, but I would also not want the other person to be harmed especially if there was no threat to my son from them.

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.

Apparently he's not intelligent enough to carry on any kind of dialog. I do see the trend you are speaking of. He has no position on anything, no argument, no rational rebuttal, nothing!!!! Don't you think it s kind of pointless to come to a site like this ill prepared to engage in any kind of meaningful dialog?

Indeed it is pointless.

But pointlessness is one of the hallmarks of a True Believer™.

... what with their god being just a delusion and all.
