How do you get to know some one who is not real?

Don't they lock up people who talk to imaginary friends?

Richard you would have to lock up 90% of the worlds population. Sorry, you are a vast minority for good reason.

debates like that mean nothing. Atheists are going to believe everything Nye says and vice versa. Its simply entertainment for some people.
Lol...wow...I guess I'm not involved with the Nye followers lol. Sometimes you are very entertaining.

Hardly the kind of saving one would expect from an omnipotent being.

The assumption is that you're referring to Hitler.
Hitler wasn't an omnipotent being, he was Catholic.

At least blame the correct religion.

Perhaps, but the Lutherans wouldn't have operated the ratline that allowed so many nazi higher-ups to escape. Perhaps the ratline was just a dress rehersal for the later operations to protect pedophile priests.

The 'Rat Line' was real and it was supported by the Catholic Church. Many Nazis escaped to South America or other countries with the help and duplicity of the Roman Catholic Church. Protecting pedophiles is another disturbing fact the Roman Catholic Church was involved in. Neither can be attributed to Christian behavior or Christ-like behavior since that behavior is the opposite of what a true Christian or follower of Christ would do in personal behavior.

The Holy Bible also warns about false prophets and churches which are rotten with sin and engage in vile sins against GOD. The Holy Bible warns of the harlot church which is a prostitute and sins against GOD's commandments. Some today will publicly say it's the Roman Catholic Church the Holy Bible is pertaining to, others scholars will say that the Holy Bible is meaning all sins allowed, fostered or committed by any member of a church is a false prophet or false church of GOD. Examples of false prophets and false Churches would be Jim Jones the founder of a church whose members perished from poisoning and gunshot in the Jamestown Massacre in Guyana and David Koresh of Waco, TX compound where so many died a horrible death of fire and suffocation both men had understanding of biblical scriptures but through manipulations and their own perversions they corrupted the meaning and intent of the Holy Bible to satisfy their need for adoration, power and sexual urges.

Mankind is full of sinful behavior, Christians have to choose to turn away from sinful behavior forsaking carnal sinful behavior. The Holy Bible admonishes us we will be held accountable for the knowledge we have. Those who do not possess the knowledge will be look upon differently than for those who have the knowledge and choose to continue with sinful behavior.

Remember "free will"? The choice has always been yours and yours alone. Interesting thing about knowledge you can ignore it or accept and use it to your overall benefit.

The bible says there was no knowledge of good and evil until Adam and Eve ate from the tree.
So how come your god is punishing generations of children yet unborn for his own screw up?

You said No and I accept your refusal. Any other discussion is a moot point isn't it?

a follower of Ken Ham? ummmmm no I'm not a "follower" of anyone except God. I've read a few of Ken Ham's books and saw him once in person at a church. Obviously I agree with him.

Him being Christian had nothing to do with him being crazy, so why deny it.

Since you don't accept spirituality then you must be speaking in terms of physicality. In the latter case you make free will choices everyday I would think.

Debating evolution with the Creationist Ham and people like antiatheist is like this analogy:

“You can knock on a deaf man's door forever.”
&#8213; Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

Ham admitted that nothing, absolutely nothing can be said or nothing can be proven to change his mind.

Nye said 'evidence' would change his mind.

Enough said.

I have no reason to be anything other than polite, so far :-).

I find your logic unstable. How would I go about proving a nazi was a Christian exactly. Well, I might also question, how would you go about proving that they weren't?

agnostic what is weird is that Ham and the other scientists during the debate are 100x more intelligent than you ever thought about being. Quit making yourself look even dumber that you are
