You deny your own science because you cannot except the possibility of "God"...when in fact you state that " anything can come from nothing "
So what you are really saying is "anything can come from nothing, except "God"
No, you are stating that only your god can come from nothing. I am stating we have no evidence of your god therefore the claim can be dismissed.
I asked you to validate your claim that I "stated"
"that only your god can come from nothing."
by a direct quote...that was all?
can you or not?
If anything can come from nothing, then there is no God. Or if nothing can come from nothing, neither can God.

Idle speculation. There's no way to take it any further.

If not, the don't expect ANYONE else to accept (and most especially do not HARP, RAG and NAG at others about...) merely YOUR opinion, because NOT everyone will agree on the subject-EVER.

In fact, science is just now catching up to concepts that are thousands of years old...which is actually quite funny if you think about it...LMAO
Really?

So, when does science catch up to that "magic fruit that makes an eater immortal" concept? I'm in my 50's and wish they would hurry the hell up.

When does science catch up to the "talking animals" concept? Just like in children's cartoons. That would be fun to experience.

When does science catch up to the "sun standing still in the sky" concept for those of us who don't seem to have enough hours in the day?

Like Quanutmn physics...more aprapo to INTELLIGENT design, rather than mere animalisTIC panderings .

My "God" has REAL ETHICS, decency, Morality (does YOURS?) as well as consideration of OTHERS--is not all greedy and selfish, self centered and self absorbed (like flipping six year olds with their know no better hands grabbing under pinnatas, like uncontrolled animals for the flying candy that someone ELSE put into it), is NOT all braggart and sleazy, inconsiderate or vile...and does NOT seek it's own--especially out on OTHERS.

Therefore MY "God" exists as much, as yours does NOT.

Like it or not :-).

If one does, it certainly won't be like anything described in the bronze age collection of goat herder myths, fables and fairy tales known as the Bible. NO higher cosmic intelligence could be that stupid.

This is true. There do seem to be LOTS of people who prefer "living" in the 14th century and remaining willfully ignorant of the VAST amount of science that is known.

BTW, the VAST majority of the world's scientists and populace DO accept the scientific validity of the ToE.

My personality has it's own moral compass! It seems that yours does not. I'm not inclined to put my faith in your morality without one! Touche!

I do too, but I see absolutely no rationality in "just dismissing" other possibilities from realms of that which we do NOT know, or do I see ANY justification, whatsoever, in excusing just vile behavior against others, under the mere Ignorant "guide" of NOT believing in a "higher realm" (of whatever sort).

Mostly because I don't believe in using just Ignorance as an excuse, on EITHER side of THAT aisle either.

Ignorance is ignorance, but willfull ignorance out of nothing but Hate, is , with out a doubt, the worse of the proverbial "evils".

As in having the right to make medical decisions.

It won't be long before the majority are people who don't get married because both the liberal and conservative parties are only interested in enslaving everyone with legal obligations through marriage.
So you see marriage as "enslavement"?

Stop sounding like Charles Idemi, demanding gay marriage as a Constitutional right when it isn't.
When did Idemi do that?

The word marriage is not mentioned once in the Constitution.
But other things that have an impact on marriage law are.

Actually, I misread your post initially lol.

FACT-REAL Truth on the topic would say- We do NOT know...because ANYTHING else would be a LIE.

(and expereince has shown me...too much negative..is NOT good for people...not at all...and those who only wish to try and "shove" their own negetives down others throats, I find to be rather "e-VILE" in "nature".

As in-EWE-TOXIN alert!
