There is plenty of proof of that, too-- and NONE that supports a god existing.

Bullsh7t. 100% too-- nothing in your BuyBull supports what you just wrote.
Nothing.
So you cannot even claim biblical support for your statements above.
Sad.
Biblical support for the existence of Hell or Demons ...Heaven and Angels .....there's that word again ..."denial"...

Or was your comment not directed at me? Hmmmm.... sometimes your style is not very easy to decipher.

Religion is used by people of power, to keep everyone else, sheep.
Look carefully at history-- this lesson is clear.
A) "My" writing style ,difficult to decipher ...(okay , sometimes it is )...You're lucky you, don't have to decipher "Reason Personified" ,writing style ..(I think she drinks ....A LOT..!!!)

With good reason: they routinely murdered anyone who did not comply with their ugly rules.
Remember the Spanish Inquisition?
How about the Crusades? Where Genuine Catholic Knights™ rampaged across Europe, raping & pillaging (and burning to the ground) any and all villages that did not kowtow to their whims.
The enemies are all self-inflicted.
I found nothing wrong with this post ..

Only by LYING can they defend their positions-- there are NO facts in support of a young earth.
And thousands of man-hours of RESEARCH proving a multi-billion year old earth.
So.... not really-- ALL-- without a single exception-- YE types are liars.

The bible cannot support itself.

You need outside collaborative facts-- of which you have?

None.

Reason is one of the more erudite writers on Topix, ahead of me.

So claiming she's incoherent, when the evidence (her posts) say otherwise?

Is grasping at straws you do not have...

You are sheep-- your sheep-like behavior enables your "leaders" to commit atrocity, over and over again.

And I also think that we atheists-- we who have embraced the consequences of our doubts-- we remind them of THEIR doubts.
And since they cannot convince us?
That only feeds into their own personal doubting all the more--
-- which makes them... angry.
Which leads to the hate, the persecution, the sl0t-shaming, the name-calling all that--
Doubts.
Everybody has them.
Only an atheist is comfortable with them, though.
:D
Well, perhaps I'm very unkind to "you" because "you" remind me of my doubts ...or..??...you're just ugly and dumb ..

The earth, at last count, is about 4.3 billion years young.

The universe? About 13 billion years or so (last time I looked it up).

Interestingly, it took less than a billion years for life to appear-- around 3.6-3.8 billion years back.

This seems to indicate that life is easy to get started-- but takes awhile to really get going with multicellular life. That took another 2 billion years or so, such that, about 1 billion years back, the first multicellular life forms showed up.

After that? Things took off like a fighter jet (relatively speaking)

When you are describing "Reason Personified" ..I think the adjective you were looking for is "hirsute" rather than erudite ....

Sheep that follow a monster ...huh...??...Well, anything is possible ...(I appreciate the clarification )

Yep...you were right ...I was wrong ..(as usual)..

Your jealousy is showing. RP is a woman, by the way-- just so you know for when you create future insults.

It does not matter WHAT the odds were, so long as they were greater than zero.

Why?

Simple-- we are here, so even if the odds were one ga-zillion to one against?

We would not be talking about it, until that Lottery Bell was rung-- and here we are.

In defiance of the odds.

You seem to think this is "cosmically significant" when it's not.

Yeah...the odds overcome by single celled creatures ...the speed of (earlier) evolution ..the abundance of fossil fuels ..........It still remains ,"quite" possible that, there is an unseen intelligence involved ...

Epistemology questions what knowledge is, how it is acquired, and the possible extent to which a given subject or entity can be known.

Know-it-alls reject
limitation on their knowledge?
Thinking people often have doubts of their own ideas,

atheist drama queens
seldom doubt their thoughts.

Sad or amusing?

Most atheists that I know acknowledge that they continually probe previously unknown territory about which they know little or nothing. I've interacted with many know-a-lot atheists, but never a know-it-all one.

Possible? Sure. Likely? Not even a little bit.

Unless that "unseen intelligence" has ... "left the building".

this Constantine narrative ,wherein he is accredited for the forcible spread of the faith and the creation of the Bible ..
I don't buy it , he was a pagan until his death ..So a pagan Emperor and his pagan generals ,"really" went forth and smashed their own temples and idols ...Who could believe that ...???
As,for the creation of the Bible ...that's still a work in progress ..every few decades a new and improved English translation hits the bookstores
Geez, you are slow. Constantine found a method to control others with. I doubt he felt the need to scourge himself with the same whip that he used to convert non-believers to his newly minted religion. He is the reason for the season, so to speak.
