Hardly.

Peaceful living cannot be "bought", as that requires actual brain activity.
SO quit your whining.

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.
where?
So then you accept the fact that there is a possibility that your god does not exist?

so you judge the value of life by how much money one has? That's just plain greed.
Well, I never liked the idea that true artist all must suffer, and die an early death before they become famous. We don't have a patronage driven society. I guess the only way to mix art with money is by selling out to the corporations, which pretty much means the art turns to cr!p.

You'll never reach more than a niche market if you don't understand the corporate formula though. I kind of packed it in on the arts because nobody appreciates it anymore. Everyone just wants a fantasy fix. So...am I pimping my imagination out or living in denial thinking that I'm not part of the system?

Let someone else start the rebellions. I'll play a part when it happens.

Just because we do not often SEE the science in nature-does NOT mean it is not there!!

Only ignorance would dismiss anything like that!

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.

Do you accept the FACT that there is a possibility that a higher intelligence of design might exist?

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.
And THAT is the FACT.

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.

That's probably where the term "mad scientists" arose from..uh..and DUH.

You have a strange definition of "fact" but I don't prove negatives!

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!
