Or Nero, or Caligula, or Spartacus or Cambyses or Xerxes. All are documented in the same manner as God and Jesus Christ. Do you deny their existence?

I was talking about character! The solopsism, vanity, extreme self centeredness of scientists. One dare ever question their magnificence. Get a scientist to say "I'm wrong" about anything? FAT CHANCE!
Darwin was so impressed with himself that he would have been hard pressed to even to even think there was another human being of his self estimated magnitude on the face of the planet!
ummm. i know many scientists that are the exact opposite of what you say.

and as to Darwin, as you would know if you had the intelligence to learn about someone before you attempt to slam them, had shelved his work for several years until an old friend wrote him from china with a paper promulgating a theory identical to Darwin's from his research there. darwin immediately pulled out his old study and promptly published it to beat him to it. so he knew for sure there were others able to see what he had observed.

Seriously, have you even gone to college?

I see someone is going to have to explain the scientific method to you. Plus the meaning of "scientific theory."

Oh please could you mr. Gellybelly?

Funny this post in response to me saying that more less that we may not have absolute proof for God but we have evidence.

It looks as if You've got your dial set to full doofuses mode.

I know some scientists that are not narcissistic, actually know these people.

I had read ALL of darwins works when I was in college and he WAS nacissistic. I wanted to make up my own mind about evolution and studied it. I studied original research.

Good answer, but keep just a bit in the corner of your mind for alternatives that might just blow your -- and my -- mind.

You are using the "No true Scotsman" fallacy.

Just because they don't measure up to your standards of what a Christian is does not mean that they are not Christians.

If you want to claim that Kong and I are wrong you need to prove it. I do believe that Kong included a link that showed you are wrong.
"They are Christians. And Hitler was a Christian too. "

Sure they were.(Smirk)

WOW what can you say.

So let's see it. Or don't you understand logic either?
"Yes, of course. Woodtick said there was no evidence for god and you called that lie. Logically that means you are claiming there is evidence for god."

MM, on the previous page you called this claim of woodtick's a lie:

"no person alive has ever given a shred of evidence for any god, gods or goddesses."

Do you realize that by calling that a lie you are in effect claiming there is evidence given by someone somewhere and who is still alive today that there is evidence for the existence of god.

So one more time: Where is that evidence?
"no person alive has ever given a shred of evidence for any god, gods or goddesses."

Of course this is a lie. Or just plain uneducated foot in mouth boosting.

Science questions the God spot in the brain. ;-)

http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm...

Such efforts to reveal the neural correlates of the divine—a new discipline with the warring titles “neurotheology” and “spiritual neuroscience”—not only might reconcile religion and science but also might help point to ways of eliciting pleasurable otherworldly feelings in people who do not have them or who cannot summon them at will. Because of the positive effect of such experiences on those who have them, some researchers speculate that the ability to induce them artificially could transform people’s lives by making them happier, healthier and better able to concentrate.
Science is still looking for the brains in atheist.

No looking for the atheist spot until they find the brain. Word is they are bringing in an Atomic force microscopy. I'm told that they have high hopes for success.

You don't have any atheist friends?

You need to look around at the other atheist boards. Atheist all over these boards claim that without a God there can be no Sin.

You would not be my first pick to go looking for that missing item "the atheist brain".
