We have stuff to do in the real world, while you're hallucinating and lying to your friends, family and complete strangers about a god that isn't really there.
You're more then free to leave this thread any time you like.

Grow up.
That would be only from your narrow view point. I enjoy read his post.

Oh what other people on here?
Maybe with different view points?
How could be?

Batty wants to speak for everyone but fails and then adds more lies. What? Don't tell me an atheist lying? How could that be!

"The rest of the modern world is racing past us"

ya I know. Kind of rough being an atheist and watching the modern world pass you by.

I haven't ? Really. Well the fact is you cannot take anyone's blind word on these boards so to say any more on the subject would be futile.

USMC.

In early 1968, General Vo Nguyen Giap, the man in charge of North Vietnam's army, believed it was time for the North Vietnamese to make a major surprise attack on South Vietnam. After coordinating with the Viet Cong and moving troops and supplies into position, the Communists made a diversionary attack against the American base at Khe Sanh on January 21, 1968.

On January 30, 1968, the real Tet Offensive began. Early in the morning, North Vietnamese troops and Viet Cong forces attacked both towns and cities in South Vietnam, breaking the ceasefire that had been called for the Vietnamese holiday of Tet (the lunar new year).

Dude it's just chemical reaction in one mutated brain vs another if evolution is correct. You have to agree with that if you believe in evolution.

"Whence morality? That is a question which has troubled philosophers since their subject was invented. Two and a half millennia of debate have, however, failed to produce a satisfactory answer. So now it is time for someone else to have a go…Perhaps [biologists] can eventually do what philosophers have never managed, and explain moral behavior in an intellectually satisfying way."

Maybe EmpAtheist can have a go at it.

It does show the inability to debate and up hold you side of the debate with new and interesting fact like Derek post do.

That's on you, not on me. I would be the better person in any intelligent human's eyes for offering, you declining out of spite just shows how much hatred you hide.

Mature adults do not talk that way.
They don't need to. They know real words.

So we'll just call your group the kiddies.
I see it all the time in public the kiddies talking that way. It's embarrassing women and children all around in a restaurant and the big kiddies dropping F bomb after F bomb.

I don't you do. At the time of Jesus birth the word planet meant wandering star.
If you read the Bible you must use the words definitive in that day that they were penned.
So then, your God, who was writing this buy bull through "inspired humans" didn't know the difference between planets and wandering stars.

Dude!! That's even WORSE!! Your God is an idjit!!

These are current day conjecture and hypotheses .... who said I "believe" in them? I'm waiting for verifiable evidence before I accept them as theory. You should do the same with your "God conjecture".

And you ignore my point completely...

I'm not making any claims of where morality comes from. I just don't get them from violent fiction books.

Pft. I know less about cosmology, biology, and physics than most other atheists on here. I do know sociology, psychology, computer technology, and chemistry, but that's the extent of my in depth studies. So don't feel left out, everyone has something to offer.

Nope lots of people don't like profanity.
Of course you being an atheist and believe we all mutated to pie current level you little chemical firing off in your brain can't be expected to understand another human life form with just random spurts brain activity.

Of course I don't believe like you. I believe we were all created and our brains are not random chemical reactions. And that humans should be held accountable.
