no..........the evidence to show how the universe existed from nothing and how it could possible evolve into the perfect system that we have now. Atheists never can provide any logical explanations as to how that possibly could have happened. Apparently you aren't able to come up with anything either. Surprise surprise

Another atheist crybaby. Man screwed up the world gramps, not God. I'm sure you must know I was speaking of the perfection of our universe...not mankind.
Please explain in what way you think the Universe is "perfect".

Hey I gotta give you credit for actually coming up with something which is more than any of these others guy have been able to do. I didn't watch much of the video but Im pretty sure the guy giving the speech is an atheist. I could find videos of creationists giving the same type of speech with equally impressive evidence.

When I say "perfect" universe I'm talking about how the planets rotate, the distance from the sun, the moon, etc etc. It all works like a well tuned machine. To say that we, the universe, etc. came about as a complete accident and evolved from nothing is just way too hard for me to believe. As I've said before, the odds of that happening are too great against it. Its honestly hard to understand how anyone could actually think that could actually happen.

Basically I'm never going to convince you and you are never going to convince me which is fine. Every man has to live his own life and answer for himself. If you are comfortable with your position then thats your business. I just happen to disagree.

Nope. Basically, I need to directly observe or otherwise experience some kind of manifestation of the Supernatural and you need to toss away your Heavenly Security Blanket and appreciate Reality as it actually exists. Ain't gonna happen.

I do not take this position because it makes me "comfortable". Quite the contrary. This statement of yours harkens back to the #1 Evidence for Creator Beings I listed earlier. It makes you "comfortable".

BTW ... what do you think about all the cratering? You know, all the pock-marked worlds out there that look like they've been through Hell. God throwing temper tantrums? Target practice, perhaps, for his next big extinction event? Maybe a little CHAOS leaking into your fine-tuned, "perfect", clock-work Universe?

Hey! Maybe all these planets did condense together and experience periods of heavy bombardment like those whacko Astronomers suggest!?!? Nah. If they're right about that, they might be right about a lot of other stuff and that makes me feel uncomfortable.

Good for you. Now spend a lot of time looking for him.
I suggest serious solitude and meditation.
And nice quiet mountain top or a remote monastery.

That's usually keeps types like you out of trouble.

Can you suggest a good hallucinogen that doesn't cause unsightly wrinkles?

Ha! You completeley missed the point but your very entertaining. I will keep your advice in mind the next time I'm on a mountain top. Does it have to be all the way at the top or will the first summit i come to work? Why can't God meet me on a beach? Its a lot less climbing and much better weather.

oh hill you are reverting back to your hateful, obsessive atheists ways again. See, its no wonder most people find atheists very annoying. You try and tell them to go ahead and not believe in God and they just don't seem happy unless they attempt to belittle Christians. Typical bullies I guess....talking down to others to overcompensate for their inferiorities.

well what most of you angry, delusional atheists don't understand is that you are a fringe group and a vast minority for good reason.

And what reason might that be? Are you really sure it's a "good" reason? I think it's because the vast majority live in misery, ignorance and superstition as that is what suits their Master's.

And please explain how you can have a "vast minority". I think there's a term for that, but I don't think you'd like it.

The lowest stats I have found puts us at about ten million people in this country alone and growing everyday. Ten million a fringe group? Of course we have this conversation every few days Anti.
your usual rhetoric;
"Were angry"
"Were hateful"
"Were attacking Christians"
"We wont let Christians live their lives"
"Blah, blah,blah,blah freakin blah"

Not an ounce of truth to any of it.

Hallucinogens are for failures.

Hope you find what you need.

And you can? Your belief system states that the universe can from nothingness, out of a complete void. Do you have viable evidence?
