Some form of deity somewhere might exist but I know 100% for sure there is no all powerful compassionate god because there is evidence of avoidable suffering.

No, you're desperate.
I'm pragmatic.

thinking....your hate overrides what little intelligence you might possess. I almost feel dirty responding to someone who is obviously a borderline retarded individual.

Its nice that you care about Atheists and think you can *save* them from their *ways*. But it is also very naive of you.

Yet here you are, replying again and again, without any evidence of the god you're lying about.

I'm not the dozy moron that left an unguarded tree of knowledge in a garden of Eden where your had just one choice: to fail.

I'm also not the vindictive moron, that according to your scripture, is punishing generations of children yet unborn.

Did you bother to read the photo's caption? Scientists said it is a photo (actually an X-ray image) showing a release of energy from the explosion of a star. It resembles a "hand of god" the same way card 5 of the Rorshach test resembles a butterfly. Of course, for those who believe in a disembodied spirit, resemblance to any human anatomy is not proof of a deity at all.

Just another example where if you already believe, you can project your belief onto the picture and "see" what you want to see, while, if you don't already believe, the response is nore or less "meh".

Cite a specific source identifying a specific scientist or body of scientists who made such a claim, or admit that you just pulled this out of your arse.

If you watched more than 5 minutes of PBS, you'd know no one said
the polar icecap should already be melted. Okies are OK for hours of
FOX News but get headaches whenever they watch public television.

You would sound smarter if you were silent.

Al Gore said, and I quote,“the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.” He made this claim in 2008 and it was based off what he obviously thought was science. Just another example of scientists pushing their agenda and idiots like Gore believing it. Do I need to give more examples of so called scientists being wrong? I could give many

Time for your regular owning..

Compare the accuracy of Al Gore's statement about the melting polar ice to the biblical accuracy of the non- return of Jesus.

"Soon" has turned into thousands of years.

Al Gore was way more accurate than your god.

ha.........I love it. Al Gore says the polar ice caps would melt in five years and you can't stand it because he was obviously wrong. "Soon" in the grand scheme of things could easily mean thousands of years. Your owning continues. I'm actually embarrassed for you
