For you to even ask such a daft question shows your hate for God/Jesus. You do not believe either are real. It would be like you asking if George Jetson was gay. Are you a closet homosexual?
tough to hate a proven myth...

but it is easy and fun to poke fun at them, and those that believe in them even after they have been proven false...

If you can't hate was does not exist,,, how can you poke fun at what does not exist? So in other words you say you don't believe in them, they don't exist but yet you poke fun at something that you believe isn't there. What does your shrink think about that?

It does not make sense to hate the Incredible Hulk, but it's fun to laugh at his purple pants.

Is this your closet homosexual anger coming out. If you would just come out yourself you would not be so angry.

i suppose it could be. now we just need a teensy shred of evidence to suggest that some god, gods or goddesses ever existed or exist now. or those powerful aliens capable of creating life and/or planets...

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch this and I prove it to you."

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?" The boy takes the quarters and leaves.

"What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey son, may I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"

The boy licked his ice cream cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar the game's over and no more free ice cream!"

Moral. Not all people are a dumb as people think they are. But by acting as if they are, they can have fun at others expense and in reality it shows how dumb they are.

Most scientist actually believe life can survive in places other than earth. Many believe there is other life in the universe and some believe there is other life within our solar system. Some think it may be microscopic organisms like bacteria. Some think there may be more than that.

So fact is they would not be looking for other life if they did not think it existed.

Biologically speaking, the human body is nothing but an elaborate vessel optimized for the growth and spread of our microbial inhabitants several hundred microbial species numbering in the hundreds of trillions that call our body home! It turns out that we are only 10 percent human: for every human cell that is intrinsic to our body, there are about 10 resident microbes yuck! Clearly, bacteria are beneficial and essential to our little lives.

Dude since you like to talk so much and supposedly know so much. The universe is 13.7 billion years old, the earth 4.7 billion years old. What was there and going on for the 9 billion years before earth was formed?
For the previous 8 billion or so it was doing the same thing it's doing now.

Notice that this is a thread about biological evolution as opposed to creationism, and in order for you to avoid dealing with the fact of evolution's validity you have to wind the clock back BILLIONS of years before the evolution of life was even relevant. All so you can go to a nebulous point of knowledge so you can say "HA HA YOU DON'T KNOW THEREFORE GODDIDIT LOLOLOLOLOLOLLLLL!!!111!!!1!

Actually they would still look. Why? Because there's no way to get any real idea of the possibility before we start looking.

It's a very big universe out there...

WOW!! "For the previous 8 billion or so it was doing the same thing it's doing now"? That's brilliant! Just brilliant!!

A thread about biological evolution where also the evolutionists say that the Universe is 13.7 billion years old, the earth is 4.7 billion years old, life arose from a muddy soup of nothing, and that is where life came from thus we have been evolving since. So it is relevant to evolution because according to most here that is when things started that led up to evolution.

There is no credible evidence that God exists.
There is no credible evidence that God cannot exist.
There is no credible evidence that life exists elsewhere.
There is no credible evidence that life cannot exist elsewhere.

So far, all our efforts to find any life other than on Earth have been inconclusive. And we must have covered at least 0.0000000001% of the observable universe so far, which keeps expanding. We have a long way to go before we can rule out anything.

Your best argument for evidence against God is a book written by people that would be considered uneducated compared to the knowledge we have now. Just the word of people, who aren't perfect and make mistakes, cannot be considered evidence for or against anything in science.

Yes, stars blowing apart and creating nebula and gas clouds, other gas clouds collapsing under gravity and condensing to form more stars and planetary systems and adding to the local galaxies, the universe expanding, you know. The usual.

How is "nothing" muddy?

Oh wait, you been taking straw-man lessons off Bohart?

Aka Nelson Muntz? What's next, puddle goo jokes?

Actually you're wrong. Since, as I already pointed out, for at least 9.91 BILLION YEARS, none of the universe was even RELEVANT to biological evolution. Evolution starts once abiogenesis occurs. Since it DID occur we have since established that evolution is a reality. Not our problem if you can't deal.

Actually there is, in the fact that comets have been known to harbour the building blocks of life.

I don't CARE about evidence against God. You can't HAVE evidence against a non-falsifiable non-scientific concept. Atheism is not relevant to me. Simple as that.

Actually the words of scientists can provide evidence FOR science. That is WHY you're posting to me from a computer right now. Science works. Bozos like Urb are here to tell you it doesn't. He doesn't even believe in the geology that provided the plastic for his PC.
