There's no such thing as god, because there's no evidence for god.

All religious claims can be proven to be lies. Even people of the same religion can't agree on what hallucination to lie about most of the time.

Atheists have to live in a world filled with stupid, loud religious people and have to deal with their inherent stupidity and arrogance every single day.

People who haven't really thought about beliefs or logic, like you, come to conversations like this, to share your superficial thoughts about the universe, coming from no knowledge or understanding of science.

But you treat your opinions as equally valid, when in fact, they are just opinions and have no merit whatsoever.

You might continue to believe that your question is valid, even after the facts are explained to you.

This is deadly combination of ignorant + arrogance.

The human condition.

I think Kevin Sorbo has a point, though an unwitting one. It's true that anger among atheists often seems excessive, and that they do protest too much. I believe most atheists would give most anything for absolute proof of a God. I think most of that anger is toward themselves for being unable to accept such a being.
To my fellow humans, both believers and atheists:
Nobody knows nuttin'.
So true!

Atheists are not the only ones who demonstrate over the top "outrage". The most fervent, charismatic Christians also demonstrate this as well as fundamentalists of many different religions.

I think some folks are just not comfortable with the notion that none of us has a clue why we are here and what our purpose in life is all about.

So they like the neat little packages that they make for themselves and get ticked off when those of us comfortable with the unknown do not buy it.

And the bottom line is that religion or even the very extreme opposite all have one goal, to try to influence or control what other people think.

I have had Atheists try to convince me of things they believe as often as I have had Religious fanatics try to do the same.

My indifference seems to bring out the worst in all of them.

Folks just need to chill out.

I agree with much of what you say, but I personally am not comfortable with the unknown. I do question what this is all about. I may never get a definitive answer, but I find the journey fascinating.

I am not talking better or worse. I think Deep Purple is a good old song. While I usually never cared for Dean Martin's braying, I think he kept his usual excesses in check, and did a fine, gentle cover of that song.

I'm afraid I'm out of the loop. Who are Nino and April?

I can't disprove the possibility of some form of deity, hiding in the ever shrinking gaps, leaving no evidence. I don't care about the label "Atheist". I'm simply a non-believer.

However, I know for sure there is no all powerful compassionate god because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

Nino Temple and April Stevens...google them, their version of DP was the biggest hit....during rehearsals, she read him the words, so he could sing them, and the producers liked that style, so it stuck....this was about 1965, you may have been an innocent child at that time.

Wow, I actually remember April Steven's name, though I didn't associate her with Deep Purple.
But on your advice I just found it (with brother Nino) on YouTube.

I may be risking our show biz camaraderie, but I think it is awful. It trivializes a really beautiful ballad.

I think i'm still an innocent child, maybe a little more grumpy.

Do you mean that when the Old Testeament staates Assyria conquered a good chunk of the Middle East and where not exactly nice people thats a Lie?
And later that the Persian showed up and conquered an even bigger chunk of land, but where a lot nicer about it , that is a lie.
Or how about Rome later ruling what is now Isreal and Pontus Pilate being made governor . Is that a lie?
The more we study Myth and legends the more we find there a grain of truth behind them.

Why do you idiots try to even speak, when you KNOW you have no evidence of god?

You're not fooling anybody.
