Nor can you disprove his existence using the scientific method. Also fact.

Another twister of words. I love it! Present me with proof using the scientific method that God does not exist and we will talk. Until then, a believing I will go.

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.

My belief is my reality. Whether or not God truly exists has yet to be proven using the scientific method. Thus your opinion is also just that. Your opinion.

I don't argue with that statement at all. My question in turn is this: If God did create all those facts and evidences, who the hell are you trying to disprove?

<quoted text>Yeah, I got no problem with theists accepting science either. Generally people who believe in God and accept science we usually just refer to as Christians. However those who prefer to deny reality for the sake of their faith we refer to as creationists. They are the ones who say such and such a science is wrong because it conflicts with their ideas of how the invisible magic Jew didit using magic. Though you may despise labels they are usually quite handy every day things, so much so that the English language relies on them.
I do enjoy a smartass. Use the scientific method to disprove the existence of my "invisible magic Jew God" and this conversation will be over. Until then, I don't need a science lesson or a lesson on the English language. Thank you all the same.

Lol What scientific evidence? In everything you've found, you have yet to be able to use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God. That's just fact. I don't believe in the evidence. I believe in God. Thus you cannot use the scientific method to prove to me why I shouldn't believe in him. The most you can do is disagree. I'm cool with that. What you can't do, however, is tell me that I'm wrong.
I'm not coming from a creationist standpoint. I'm coming from an individual one. Please refrain from putting labels on me when I refuse to put labels on myself.
There is a reason that I describe people like you as "creatard".

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?

If your belief is your reality then you are delusional. That is what delusion is.

I twisted nothing. I quoted your exact words. I don't care if you believe or not but you can't run away from your own words.

You're going 'round the bend. Please show me where I said one damn thing about disproving a god. I think you're listening to the voices in your head a bit too much.

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?
