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.

Voyager has left the premises.

Read about the plasma densities and magnetic fields and the carrying of the fields.

That's NASA, not Polymath.
So how did you get from a volume of millimeters to billions of light years in a flash without a leading edge? Other than magic.
The portion of the universe *we can see today*. There is more to the universe than what we can see today. The region we can see today was millimeters across at that point. The whole universe was larger.

There was no leading edge because every place in the universe looks the same at any given time. This is fundamental in the model.

No dice home slice that was Stephen Hawking, enough said.
And he was right. The universe (meaning the current expansion phase) had a beginning. That beginning was also when time began. So there was no 'time before the Big Bang'. Check to see what Hawking said in more detail.

Did you notice that Hawking is an atheist? He would not agree with the reasoning in that video.

I do agree he is, even though he side steps the question. That is what makes that video a slam dunk. The Hawking debate will all ways be there, was he an atheist, or was he keeping his sponsors happy? I off course will take the man for his word.

The debate on Christian creationism vs Atheism and God and evolution vs Atheism is two different animals. The bloggers here are left behind.

Funny-- I have **never** got any kind of notice; from what I've read about Topix, if a post **is** reported?

The author gets a notice...

That is because your statement is too stupid to be worthy of a response. The fact you go on, is the difference between you being an idiot, and being a stubborn idiot.
Nothing in the above? Constitutes an actual argument.

But there is plenty of belittling and name-calling.

Sad.

The only thing that has been provable in this tread is your third grade reading comprehension if that. I would love to see how much spell check saves you. After noting your failed reading comprehension I should expect something as stupid as "Religion has never had any interest in science."

No?

Google it-- using a **PARTIAL**QUOTE** of Stephen Hawkings is LYING.

It's what you do.

Taking a snippet of something someone says, and then making that snippet SEEM TO SAY THE EXACT OPPOSITE?

Is a LIE. It's called "quote mining".

It's what your lying video did.

You are a liar.

It does make the victory so much sweeter. Little Red Bobbing Hood could not take my word for it, that Mr Hawking, and I admit at first I did spell his name wrong. Admitted that it could not be proven god does not exist. Babbling Bob is so stupid even after Cambridge's highest professor, the keeper of The Chair, has set him straight. He says "that's not proof." What a dolt.
Nope. Your lying video used QUOTE MINES.

But I see your name-calling continues.

And you? You did not win-- you lost, and badly.

Mr Hawking nor myself denies evolution. I do disagree with some details others have, that THEY CAN'T PROVE. The monkey in the middle. If we came from a tree primate. 1. Our feet would be much different then they are. 2. We would be so much more stronger and faster. We'd be able to beat the 50 pound monkey that could rip us to shreds. You are a fool for trying to put words in my mouth or thoughts in my head. As Orwell claimed you would, worm meat.
Your video? Was a flat lie-- by using a short snippet, it LIED.

That is what you are doing above-- you are LYING.

It's what you do best.

It clearly says energy exist before The Universe. Energy being God. Don't confuse this with when Hawking and others say there was no human form, that Christians worship as God. Even after making such a statement. That can not be proven wrong. I continue to tell you I am not Christian, however I can't tell Christians I can prove they are wrong about God. Some of the details of wiser atheist than the ones that post here, I do agree with. They attack details of the scripture. In some cases it is misunderstanding. With in the scripture itself is warning of false prophets. There really are good people out there that do break down and analyze the writings. I think what you have here is a "I can deny anything and everything cult."

Indeed-- you **are** left behind.

Your lying video uses quote-mines to LIE.

It's a classic True Believerô lying technique.

The reason there is no argument is because, there is no way you could prove your point. I am stunned you even try.

I do think it is constructive criticism. I am not sure if your reading comprehension could be saved. I think it all started because you take no one's word for anything. When your teachers corrected your book reports you thought it was due to political agendas or something along that line instead, of the teacher doing what his job was.

Hawking lying, that is just stupid. He puts a lot into what he does and deserves respect for it. He has called things against my beliefs and I don't go on as you are. It's silly.
