How do YOU know?

Oh wait - you don't.

But I guess I was right about you being a typical Christian YEC fundie creationist all along then.(shrug)

Now there's no need to be so frigging coy about it anymore, is there? Doesn't that feel better?

Furthermore, life is a gift from God, and the experience of living on earth is precious and should be cherished.
Then why do you waste so much time worshipping the afterlife then just like a good little death-cult should?(shrug)

Did you pray honestly believing that God is real?
Yup. But to be fair I was exceedingly young and gullible at the time. Not so much now.

You have to be serious, God will not be mocked.
It never is. Your opinions of what you think God is however, they can be mocked all the time. And often are. After all your baseless religious opinions are COMPLETELY unimportant.(shrug)

If you refer to light from the early cosmic background radiation it simply wasn't strong enough. If you're referring to light from God itself then it didn't get through because of the solid ice shield that surrounded the planet. If you're saying none of this matters because Godmagic has no restrictions then science does not support your claims.

<quoted text>I am not a Christian and the ninth commandment prohibits false witness, not lying. There's a difference, everybody lies but we're also not supposed to. Jehovahs witnesses are false, they have seen nothing. "They are their own witnesses, they see not nor know that they may be ashamed".
Then since you have not witnessed scientific evidence you are bearing false witness. If you claim otherwise then you are lying because everybody lies even though they're not supposed to.

Perhaps.

Your god however is an extreme psychopath.

Blasphemy is a victimless crime.

Unless your god is a wuss that is.

Photons without an em source. It sounds more to me like primitive sheep herders didn't know anything about diffusion and diffraction of sunlight through the atmosphere. Do you?

"God IS an EM source!!!"

If so then we finally have the beginnings of a meaningful (and hopefully coherent) definition of what (a) God is.

Could be fun!

If proposed mechanisms of transmutation are sufficient, then there would be no need for God to "direct" anything.
Let's expand on this very concept.

1. "There would be no need for God to "direct" anything."
2. "There would be no need for you to "direct" anything."
3. "There would be no need for Government to "direct" anything."

No. It is logical to assume that since not one single person out of the 7 billion currently living on this planet have been able to demonstrate such claims, there is no reason to presume such claims are valid at this time due to lack of evidence.

Your arrogance is binding you down.
You have not examined all of the evidence.
You merely assume that it doesn't exist.

You wouldn't recognize something that conflicted with your beliefs, even it was driven like nails into you, to hang you on the cross you bare.
You are the poster child of ugliness.

Doesn't fit with the observed physics, sorry. Unless "He" is a naked singularity - in which case physics is out the window and all bets are off.

You have never provided a single objective piece of evidence that demonstrates your claims to be examined. I submit your accusation of arrogance is merely a projection of your own constant failure to back up your position.
HTS wrote:

This is an incorrect assumption. I am quite open to the possibility that such an entity exists. But I am also quite open to the possibility that it does not. You do not concede that as a possibility.

Non-existent.

He told us so when he said he had four years medical training then proceeded to talk like a homeschooled teenager.
