Because, friend, that's really what the entire atheist/theist argument comes down to. Neither side can use the scientific method to prove or disprove the existence of God thus neither side has the right to call the other wrong. It's just that simple.
but we can use it to show that the creation myth is wrong. it just doesn't match up with the real world facts...

You don't know what scientific evidence is, nor are you willing to learn.

There are very very very few honest creationists. Those that are honest and learn what is and what is not scientific evidence admit that all scientific evidence supports the theory of evolution, they will admit it reluctantly but they do admit it. They are much quicker to admit that there is no scientific evidence for creation.

So are you honest or not?
Sure. I don't believe that God and science are mutually exclusive. Nor do I see the point in debating my opinions. Until you can use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God, then I will carry on thinking thusly.

What does that make you? You can't even use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God yet you continue on stating as much without having any proof to support your claim. And still you have the audacity to call anyone who's opinion is contrary to your own delusional. How does that work exactly?

Justsayin may be conflating attacks on his own personal beliefs as attacks on the existence of god. He is right when he claims that science cannot disprove the existence of god. But it can show that Justsayin's beliefs are wrong.

Yes but you didn't quote what I said afterward. You just took a snippet and ran with it. What am I running away from exactly?

And I see that we Justsayin and I cross posted and it looks like he confirmed my previous post.

I have no interest in disproving the existence of god. I can show that your personal beliefs are wrong.

Do you understand the difference between the two?

So I have voices in my head now? lol That's a new one. Not intending to go round any bend. How can you say something doesn't exist when you can't use the scientific method to prove that it doesn't? All you can do is state your opinion on the matter.

yes, i'm sure you don't. it would be an objective look at the facts in the issue. and those facts would show that the religious cults are pushing a lie. the whole concept of the god you believe in is based on those lies.

yes, i can certainly see why you wouldn't want to look at that objectively, as you stated people should do...

OK, you're a freaking loony. I haven't said one damn thing about proving or disproving any god. Why do you keep harping on this?
