Given that depending on the religion pretty much anything can be defined as a god I suppose that if you believe there are lifeforms in the universe more advanced than we are...
"....lifeforms in the universe more advanced". You answered your own question.

Like with Lincoln Milosevic wished to hold his nation together. Was that about religion? Outside of Clinton wishing to win points with the Saudis, Iran and Al Quieda by supporting Islamic radicals in Bosnia-Herzegovina... and that was about political cynicism rather than religious conviction.

actually, the universe has no center...so anywhere can be an arbitrary center...
The statement that the earth is the center of the universe...is a subjective truth.
The same as anywhere can be a starting point of a circle.
to be more exact about what the church said there would be tht they said the sun revolved around the Earth. divine guidance told them so...

Disprove that if you have any valid evidence as to how the earth came into form.

If Newton and Einstein had only observations in front of them but no imagination... in truth playing with numbers in their heads was far more important to real science than the testing of facts.
they had mathematics to back up their thoughts and observations that were in their turn started by facts and observations.

Then science set about proving the math and theories were correct with experimentation.

It did not even come from their religion. Nowhere in scripture does it suggest the Sun revolves around the Earth in a perfect circular motion. The church borrowed those ideas from the ancient Greek philosophers. So the Inquisition was threatening scientists with being burned at the stake for not agreeing with...
That is how truly nuts the church was.
the point we were discussing is that they said this was true through divine guidance of god's word.

they lied. again.

Utter nonsense. The Serbs wished to hold the Yugoslav nation together, the Croats wanted their independence from Belgrade and the Bosniak Moslems were Al Quieda style terrorists.

Outside of the Islamic radicals it was about politics... not religion.

Reason leads us to truth. Revelation, dogma, and authority do not. If they did there would be only one religion instead of thousands with their conflicting and very disparate doctrines.

I am saying to you that there is no material proof, at all, to prove the existence of your God, therefore He does not exist.

You are saying that God exists and that lack of evidence does not prove He doesn’t exist.

The side with the logic wins…..

The Ptolemaic system is where the church got the idea of an Earth centered universe. It had nothing to do with Christian doctrine. They burned people at the stake for not believing in Greek philosophers.

yes. again. the point in discussion is that they tried to back up this belief by saying it was god's word given to them by divine guidance.

they lied.

God does not really need a form before he can function.
