You have yet to present any evidence that this "Christ" person is real, thus, the only logical and sane thing to do is consider it nothing but a myth. So no, I am not wrong.
Yet your simpering requests of a different deity is perfectly logical? Your "magic" is impotent.

I agree,The bible was written from stories of ancient sumerian writings that were written thousands of years earlier.The bible writers changed the storys a little to make it their own.The sumerians wrote that the real creators of life on earth were aliens from the tenth planet.Our teloscopes now days cant quite focus in on it yet.It comes up as a mild blurr.Yet the sumerians called the earth the seventh planet in our solar system which would make it the third from the sun.They claimed the aliens created us for slave labor thats it, no god needing worship and praise and assss kissing just plain old labor for the gold mines in africa.There are mines in africa that were dated at 60,000 years old.Alot older than the bible says the invisible god they say created us.FYI.

I AM a supreme being rather you accept it or not and I proved this. If you don’t deny my existence then you know a supreme being exists.

I am waiting for you to tell me what your definition of a supreme being is since you are projecting prerequisites on what it entails to being a GOD!

By the way, what atheist?
YOU! Remember the law of non-contradiction I applied to your agnostic claim?! Let me refresh your memory!
Applying the law of non-contradiction I asked you two questions.
“An agnostic is a person who believes that the existence of a greater power, such as a god, cannot be proven or disproved; therefore an agnostic wallows in the complexity of the existence of higher beings”.

>>>> http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php...

You concluded two opposite answers for your conclusion!

A. GOD cannot be proven
B. GOD cannot be disproved

Proven and disproven or opposite (synonym/antonym) answers and you concluded that both of them are the answer.

You are in violation of the law of non-contradiction! You can be either/or not both!

Your response was then “I choose answer A”, and this is why I call you an atheist. Do you want to try answering this question again?! A or B?

Of course you are right about the Wicca type witches. They don't have magical powers I was talking about the mythical witches that the Church seems to believe in...the ones they think have actual magical witchly powers.
Yeah, right. Not believing in magic is why they dress up for their holy days and practice ritualistic ceremonies....

It's Halloween in their homes at least one day in every month.

Why is it so important to you to downplay the wiccans' belief in the supernatural but not the Christians?

That was rhetorical. Don't bother replying, we know "why".

Charles, belief in Demons and spirits is one of the clues that your (and all others) religion is just a false belief. Demons, spirits, and Gods all depend on magic being true. When the Bible was written people believed magic was real.
We now KNOW it is not. Just like we KNOW there is no such thing as witches.
Tell that to all your creepy buddies on here who still make blood offerings to their god.

50 years of sucessful experiments? who the hell are you Jon Lovitz? thats a lie.
You are a member of a radical 2 percent cult,and as you've just shown will tell any lie.
Hardly.

Worldwide even most Chirstians believe in evolution, it is not my fault that the U.S. has quite a few religious hicks.

And where do you get that 2 percent figure. The number of atheists in the U.S. is much higher than that and is about 15 to 20% worldwide.

Lastly, yes, 50 years of successful experiments. You are a complete idiot and liar if you think otherwise. All of those experiments were based on trying to figure out how life may have started. You didn't expect them to get it right on the first time, did you?

Oh wait, you are an idiot. You actually did. Now that is clearly the laugh of the day.

Did I affiliate you with anything?
All I did was ask a question whether what you are saying is "Aham Brahmasmi", I made no other assumption about you except try to understand what you were saying. "Aham Brahmasmi" is Sanskrit, and it literally means "I am God". This is Hindu philosophy in case you didn't know about it before.
You were also saying that you are God; the coincidence was uncanny, and so I just asked a question. You haven't answered yet.

You have got it backwards. Nimrod/Marduk made false writings and those you mentioned were from his time.

the tenth planet would be one of the Kuiper belt bodies. none of them are large enough to really support any kind of intelligent life. most of them are really just comets, like Pluto.

Yes, I am a “GOD” and I believe I validated this in one of my previous post.

I would not define myself as a GOD using "Aham Brahmasmi” but I can see why you saw it as a coincidence though! Does this answer your question and are you a supreme being?

No Mr. Force, it's not because of any one thing you've said in particular, it's the sum of your comments. It's the way you attempt to defend your responses. It's how you grasp at what you consider logic.
