I'm not here to train you on Christianity.
Tell me about spontaneous life......
is that where god supposedly made life out of inanimate stuff?

most free thinkers know more about the religions of those that proclaim to follow the faith, so no you don't have to train me about anything there...

Evil exist in every mans heart doesn't it?
Wikipedia
"In the philosophy of religion, the problem of evil is the question of how to reconcile the existence of evil with that of a deity who is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent (see theism). An argument from evil attempts to show that the co-existence of evil and such a deity is unlikely or impossible, and attempts to show the contrary have been traditionally known as theodicies."
No, it really doesn't...

<quoted text> With all the "religiosity" expressed on this thread, we christians tend to forget that Christianity is about christ, not our imagined ability to add to or take away from him (He does not need our "explanations" or defenses). The central issue is simply that Christ says "I am". You athiests are free to not believe, I will not resort to ridicule or cruelty.
Why would you believe that myth over all the other ones?

"I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.

Humans are a primitive species, advanced civs have been around for millions of years....that means woodstick, the Bible story is a ....human story like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny , all three fairy tales. That should clear up all that confusion in your gray matter. And, it must be true, its in black and white. God was created in the primitive human mind, so that means the universe is older than the Bible story by billions of years. So answer this question: Can humans contact advanced civs utilizing human technology? Goodluck.

Why are you so sure there are advanced civilizations? there is no proof of such.

again, you stated that the earth, was created at the beginning of the universe, therefore there could not be any worlds older than urs, so probably not any more advanced, that was what I was getting at.

again, i would love to see this proof of more advanced civilizations. i always wonder why people take this a given, perhaps we are the most advanced. why not?

You are right it's a mental construct. But negative energy exists.

Woody, ever heard of Blue Book or SETI? Why would the smartest, most intelligent people on this planet focus on contacting beings not of this earth? Plus, experience is the best indication that humans are infact not alone. Not alone but, light years behind the beings it desperately wants to contact. The primitive human animals mind can grasp a story.....not the reality of its existence.

So that would be no proof of these more advanced civilizations...

i would doubt we are the only life in the universe, but to flat out say there have been more advanced civilizations for millions of years is a flat out lie and would put you with the bigfoot people....
