<quoted text>You might note at this point that it was a *Christian*, a Belgian priest naems Georges Lemaître, that proposed the big bang (though that was not his name for it but rather from a smart ass remark by Fred "747" Hoyle).
So?

Hitler claimed to be a Christian too.
Oh and Satan is a angel.

Santa is actually very real, if you understand who he represents (Satan) He is called "Father Christmas" and will be the father of the Messiah. He is depicted the same way Christians depict God. His real name is Christian (Kringle) He was also a pilot (in the Navy). He is also called Saint or "Old" Nick. He is from the North where it's cold, like hell.

Not that facts matter to them, they prefer to attack than present a rational argument.

You don't roll like what? Do you believe Genesis is a literal record of the origin of the Earth and mankind?

it goes along with your other wonderfully scientific statements like the "the big bang made everything out of nothing? and "the explosion" of the big bang."...

seems it is you that never gets anything correct.

your cult lied to you...again...
Yup I say just Time. Making it real simple for you I could have asked:

Where did matter come from?

Where did space come from?

Where did energy come from?

The answer is the same. "NOTHING"

Satan was an angel for about 5000 years. You will find him in the book of Job. He was Adam, the son of God. Job 1:6.

So if he's on "you're side" and he's wrong, he isn't wrong? If someone isn't on "you're side" and they are right does that mean they aren't right?

The point I'm discussing with them has no facts but they believe it does.
As in.

Their 3 BIG Myths:

1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.

2) rain falling on rocks and settling in a mud puddle and spontaneous self generating life sprang forth.

3) plants evolving into plant eating animals.

And when I snap my fingers they will wake up and believe these 3 myths as if they were fact.

Yes. The true story of Santa Claus begins with Nicholas, who was born during the third century in the village of Patara. At the time the area was Greek and is now on the southern coast of Turkey.

Oh, I see. You do not want to back up your BS claim now and want to put the burden of proof on me for an argument that you made.

Repent, For The Time is at Hand... And Judgment Must Now Reign
Listen:
1/18/09 From The Lord, Our God and Savior - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
Thus says The Lord God of Israel: Fear My name! From sea to sea, My name shall be great among the Gentiles! Even those in the outermost reaches of the world shall come to know My name, for I shall cause it to resound in all the earth!... And the earth shall tremble, it shall be severely shaken! For I am come!
Peoples of the earth, I am coming down, and I shall visit! Yes, I shall visit, says The Lord. I shall come upon you as the whirlwind, and tear you in pieces as the hurricane! Behold, I shall cover you as the mighty flood! I shall overflow! For judgment has come, and I shall visit! I shall surely repay!
Thus says The Lord God, Creator of Heaven and Earth: I am moved from My place! I am stirred up as the hornet’s nest!... And I shall sting. The noise of My voice shall be heard! The hotness of My anger shall be felt!... A scorching heat, singeing all these hardened foreheads! For they have forsaken Me!
Therefore fall down, all you wicked!
Be cast down, all you high-minded!
Grovel at the feet of your Creator, you double-minded hypocrites!...
FOR I AM COME!...
And I shall visit upon this world great recompense,
For all its adulteries against God!
For all your murders and oppression shall I lay it waste,
O wicked peoples of the earth!
Behold, My hand is removed! Evil reigns!... Horsemen, go forth! Stir up the multitudes! And according to all they have sown, let it be done to them! Let them drink from their own vine of wickedness! Let them partake of their own supper, which they have prepared with contemptuous hands!... Let all the world revel! For the whole world shall be defiled, awash in blood and tears! Pestilences shall come forth and consume, and famine shall increase throughout the land!... Death shall fill every corner!
Then, when the transgressors come to the full, I SHALL VISIT! I shall pour out My anger! It shall be poured out upon them, without respite! The world shall wane, for the weight of My wrath! It shall be turned on its side, for the fury of My judgments!... Lightnings and thunderings, hail and blood, the shaking of all foundations!... Behold, the earth shall spew at My presence!

That's funny. Christians are the ones who claim the US was founded by/for/about Christianity, yet here it is over 200 years later and we are still battling bronze age bigotry to insure equal treatment under the law for all citizens.
Then we were just talking about addiction. You talk about yearning of the "soul" and probably refute any parallel.
You can't have it both ways without throwing the brain out with the bathwater, Bonzo.
Actually I can and do have it both ways. I believe we do all know oneself, just as early philosophers said. You know you don't have a soul and I do know I do have a soul. Atheist are against inspiration. I wouldn't desire to be in an atheist ran country, and obviously you choose not to either. For an agnostic to try to recruit a gnostic. That is as backwards as it gets.

"Atheist are against inspiration."

All Christians hate chocolate.

See? Anyone can make stupid, sweeping indictments of groups of people.

It's easy. That's why it's done by stupid people.
