Prove no God.
Wrong, it is up to the person making a positive claim to prove his claim first. Basic debating rules.

Actually, in his defense he was responding to an original claim to prove no god...

<quoted text>why do you think you guess is correct.

most people who know what they are talking about say there was, in fact, an atmosphere. and if there are organic molecules in space and we know they can form from the "primoodial soup" experiments, it would seem you concept fo just rain and rocks is totally wqrong.

how do you get rain if there is no atmosphere? oops!!!

isn't rains just H2O? Ooops..what is the O? ooops!

nice try, though...
Yup H2O and Rocks. Nothing to separate the oxygen from the hydrogen.

that's what they told the people in jersey before Sandy hit!

<quoted text>yet its just the rehash of so many previous religous myths? and you call that unique? you've been brainwashed by a cult.
Rehash? Jesus lived and said the things he did, but the crucial and significant difference lies in his death and resurrection, power over death, power to live. Choose to believe or not, Doesn't matter to me. Besides, if it is "just a rehash", why not live by those solid principles and teachings.
