Like i said, atheism is a form of faith.
Insanity is believing your hallucinations.

Religion is believing someone else's.

<quoted text> Ok, but not so fast, what about the international dateline, where a day is either gained or lost, east or west?
What about that?
Is that not spiritual reality in your very own eyes?
Think!
That really is completely arbitrary, based simply on the fact that the Brits decided to run the Prime Meridien (zero degrees longitude) through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich.

Zero degrees becomes 180 degrees, of course, when it crosses the Poles.

<quoted text> Bill, science is man made and we all know that, man made things are not all that reliable.
There are limitations for science.
I don't remember hearing God helping the humans to defeat diseases (which He undoubtedly made) and help us live longer and give us relief from pain and suffering. In fact I don't know of any instances where He helped humanity at all.

In the last hundred years or so I think science has helped mankind more than your God has in over 2,000 years. Would you contest this statement??

No, that was an honest answer, something you christians have no word for because, and you prove this all the time, honesty is a foreign concept.
Honest answer indeed!
If they don't know that, that means they don't know that God almighty do exist.

Yet you trust a man made book called the bible for absolute guidance. When has a prayer landed us on the moon? Science did it, and so reliably that we launch things into orbit all the time. Science is reliable enough to bring the internet to you. Science is reliable enough to give you food that doesn't kill you, and clean water, and electricity for light, and medicine that extends your life past 20 or 30 years.
Phew!
We have argued about this before now, the bible is a God given inspired book written by men, but science are all man made, but thanks to God for giving us the brains to think.

Um, it's actually just a fact, a result of the planet being a spheriod, it's still pretty arbitrary too, we could have had that same line go down through Seattle, or through China, it would still be exactly the same. Europe was chosen for it's location because they were some of the most proliferate explorers, and a bit arrogant.
Please, address the point directly.

Chuckles, I don't cast pearls before swine. You first need to show that you understand the concept of evidence.
Subtles, you are always fond of boasting of evidence as well as proofs, now show it.

You are trying to cloak rational, logical and scientific points in hatred.
I suppose that makes it easier for you to grasp, since the science and logic are apparently beyond you.
One of the bits you're missing is that all deities, like all mythical creatures, are the same.
The FSM is on exactly the same plane as your deity - and Thor, and Marduk, and all the others.
Nothing new here , just Thor and Marduk

If one believes that the Christian God is real then you are believing in a crazy and mentally deficient God. All one has to do is read the Old Testament to see how bad 'He' is/was.
Genocidal and egotistical loon.

All the evidences you are seeking for, are found in the bible you rejected.
If truly you are right, there would be no bible at all to read.

And again, all credits goes to God for giving us the brain for science, art, technology and social or management sciences.

Faith is the evidence of things not seen, we Christians have it, but you don't.
