i don't know, Chaz. why is your proven false god not able to stop death? or make miracles happen? we hear lots of stories, but the proof is in the puddin' where is this god of yours, Chiperino?

Adding to the above:

Distance, mass, time are real.

Metres, kilograms, and seconds are units we made up so that its possible for us to quantify and compare real distances, masses, and times. We can change the unit of measurement without changing how much distance, mass, or time is really there. If I say you have 454 grams or 1 pound of butter its still the same amount of butter. The units are imaginary, the quantity of butter is real.

We have certain talents but its pure conjecture whether they are God-given. And without any evidence. On the other hand we can see our talents and shortcomings in terms of our evolutionary history, and in that light they make sense.

I think your point is that we should be grateful we have these talents, and you cannot think of any way to express your gratitude for having them except imagining a consciousness behind the universe who might accept your gratitude. None of that means God is real, even though we are all grateful for existing anyway.

I grew up in Minnesota. Hot and humid in the summer and cold and dry in the winter. Here people say "It is freezing" if it gets below 40 and it is unbearably hot to many if it gets above 80. In Minnesota it was only cold a couple of weeks each winter. We would have a week or so of -20 temps and then it would get to be an outright balmy 0 F. Then when our midwinter thaw hit and the temps reached 40 you would see people walking around in short sleeve shorts and sometimes shorts.
Here I think you would find winters similar to Ireland. Rainy and cloudy. We have a special term for "winter" days when the sun is shining somewhere, but not necessarily on you. They are called "sun breaks". You can see that the sun is breaking through the clouds on some people. It might not hit you, but even a little indirect sunlight is nice after a month of overcast.
Here in Brazil winter fell on a Thursday this year.

These gifts were given to us by ancient aliens who allowed us the power of rational thought and speech. How else did we learn these things than by a intelligent life from a celestail plain.

Does that sound stupid to you?

<quoted text> No body is above learning. None. Now if you are going by that concepts, i will simply tell you that, you are wrong, because science use them in real, so that makes them real, or are you saying science is lying?
You are totally screwed when it comes to the concept of reality. Science uses the perception of imaginary lines, It does not actually use real imaginary lines because THEY ARE IMAGINARY lines. Why is it so difficult for you to comprehend the difference between real and imaginary? Oh I know, you whole goddidit by magic belief is based on the imagination that you believe to be real
Charles Idemi wrote:
<quoted text> You are not above learning either. Are you now saying, science is lying? Something imagined can also be reality.
You ignorant fool, of course people learn, well most people, it seems you stopped learning in Sunday school. No I am not saying science is lying, I am saying you are confused.

Nope, thatís your guess born of ignorance. Like all good christards you assume that you are good at guessing, after all you base a whole religion on it. However in real life what you are doing is guessing.

Here is the quantitative difference between abstract measures and the abstract concept of god. We can measure out with real physical; devices and demonstrate using science the very thing that only exists physically in abstract thought. Such as Metres, kilograms, and seconds, state lines points on a compass.
Volts watts and all abstract units can be shown to physically exist. Because these things exist in reality but are understood in abstract in relation to the physical reality.

Unfortunately Charles, I nor anyone else can measure out to demonstrate the physical reality of god. With any known device tool or method and what makes it even more illusionary, is the fact it cant be demonstrated to be real by any effect that can be measured.

Excuse me for interupting your rant, but..... ranting does not change what the word 'observation' refers to.
What is observed is galaxies moving away from the milkyway as if it is central to the universe.
This is wrong. What we observe is an expansion with the property that *every* galaxy would see other galaxies moving away from it. No galaxy is central because there is no center of expansion.
What BB offers is a mess that satisfies a philosophy, the Copernican principle, and uses mysteries to explain 97% of itself.
No, the BB describes quite well the expansion of the universe, the abundances of light elements, the structure of the cosmic background radiation, the effects of gravitational lenses, etc. It does hypothesize dark matter and dark energy, which make up about 97% of the *energy* density, but that is a very different thing than simply fitting a philosophy.

Wrong. Abiogenesis attempts to explain the origin of life through natural processes. But those processes are NOT random.

Chuck, I don't know if this will help, but think of property lines or political boundaries between countries. Those lines exist on maps, but the representations on the map don't reflect an actual line of natural origin on the ground. They are a human construct based on real principles and established by consensus (for lack of a better term) that allow us to define an area of land. Longitude and latitude are established in the same way, based on scientific principles, but they are conceptual and not physical.

Everybody knows that science dies not know everything.

But we have at least learned a lot more by using the scientific method than we ever did listening to crazy men who thought the Lord of the Universe was whispering eternal truths into their ears.

Life arise from organic matter, no modern hypothesis says something different. Organic matter is long chains of covalently bonded carbon atoms. The Earth pumps these type molecules out from the deep sea vents. These also fall out the sky. So your analogy is wrong from the start, perhaps you mean abiogenesis is a process that life arises from inanimate matter. But your unwillingness to think this is possible , does not negate the possibility it did.
Here is the evolutionist in all his scientific glory, I'm unwilling to think dead matter can become alive, and that doesn't negate it could have happened? The reason I don't think it happened is there has never ever been one shred of scientific evidence that it did or ever could happen. Here the evolutionist shows his faith in the unseen .I thought you guys spoke all the time about evidence? apparently not.
