A lot of what you are calling evidence is simply "I don't understand".
"I don't understand" is not evidence for God.
And it is a shame that you do not understand evolution after all of this time. Evolution does not occur by "luck".
All evolution needs for success is a livable environment and reproduction. It doesn't needs feelings such as love, happiness, hate, caring, sadness, good or evil. Actually if emotions did not exist, it would be better for evolution to just breed, mutate and reproduce.

When you ask me a question most times I will answer in what I believe, what I think and/or my opinion. A simple yes or no is not always the only answer unless you are just sheeple that follow the crowd and do as they do without thinking for yourself.
Maybe if he posted his responses on threads you don't even go to, you would be able to see his post.

My evidence for God is all around me. Life, the sun, the moon, the universe, the wind, the rain, etc etc. Feelings such as love, caring, sadness, hate, hurt, and evil that are all things that evolution does not need to be successful. The beauty in nature - A masterpiece cannot paint itself.
If you want to call it luck it happened or it just happened that is your choice.
I think what you are really saying is how you feel about those things and that is only evidence of your perceptions, history, emotions, etc.

Evolution needs living organisms, environmental variability and time in order to occur. What you say it doesn't need are traits that result from evolution either directly through selection or perhaps as a byproduct.

So by your logic any book written by man/men must be fiction right? Even if they wrote from experience and or stories passed on has to be fiction. That is interesting.

Here I will throw you a bone and responded back to you since you have been trying so hard to get my attention and I have been ignoring you. It is hilarious how you say I am not in your head. But you have been going around on different threads responding to posts that I have made to others, responding to posts that others have made responding back to me. Even going on about the judgits and facing your arch nemesis for doing so. You can stop jumping up and down now like a little dog trying to get my attention. You should change your name to “Chester from Smithville”. What a tard. LMFAO

not at all, but if the bible is the word of man, then that means they created the god therein.

Well Dude, I know exactly what I believe and why, do you? I have peace and a good life full of blessings. I enjoy this Earth and have had the privilege to see it from above and below on most of the continents.

My Heavenly Father opens understanding and truth to me as I humbly observe with thanksgiving. I got to spend 20+ years in Alaska flying and working and 25 more running around underground seeing some of the greatest mineral resources on earth; and maybe have a little bigger picture than most of you hotshots here. I have worked with some class geology folks on the mining and research side. Like I said before, explain how an Axial Proton Motor jumped out of that primordial soup of yours and I may take you more seriously. Short of that I suggest you get down from that high ladder of yours and start looking up.

Yes tick it is intelligence to love and hurt to a point of killing others or yourself. It is intelligence to hate and hurt to a point of killing others or yourself. It is intelligence to hate and be evil to a point of killing others/trying to kill out a whole race.
It is intelligence to destroy what you need to survive.

Very good points there tick. LOL

they used jesus' life like a media soundbyte, but then he would have wanted that, a that was his purpose. he was no son of any god, the god you think he was the son of has been proven false.
you worship a false idol....
Don't you think we would have been a nuclear wasteland without Him?

I do..

The bible is the word of man so it has to be made up! What are the other books in the world, including nonfiction and educational the word of? I thought man wrote them as well. Did man not write those as well? Great logic.

why have we had so much murder in his name? wouldn't a god that, as you suggest, interferes with human activity have put an end to people killing in his name at least?

Tick if your father told you to jump off a bridge and kill yourself but kill two people before you do it. Would you do it or use choice(free will) and not do it?
