It's painful to see you atheists fighting with each other, lol.
Fighting? Now I get why you think you've actually won discussions here. You don't even know what fighting and debates are.
If that caused you pain, expect a lot more, as we will continue to discuss a wide range of subjects.

The question wasn't about what the he believed, he asked you how anyone could believe.

He trying to explain to your at your faith and its beliefs are ridiculous and false.

It's doesn't matter if you believe or not, factually speaking your cult is full of sh*t.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
It means that you are guilty of Hoyle's fallacy, and that you are also ignoring the argument just presented.

KJV wrote, ""This means that all the people living on earth, man, woman and child, counting day and night, would be counting for five thousand years just to count the number of entire universes which this amoeba would have transported across a distance of thirty billion light years, one atom at a time.""

LOL. How many amoebas would it take to build a god?

KJV wrote, " "the more information comes to hand, the more preposterous the whole idea of a naturalistic origin of life becomes.""

This very same arguments rules out the existence of an uncreated god. Anything ekse is more likely to exist.
I don't recall talking about tornados building air craft out of a junk yard.

But sense you brought it up.

I happen to agree with Hoyle.

"The chance that higher life forms might have emerged in this way is comparable to the chance that a tornado sweeping through a junkyard might assemble a Boeing 747 from the materials therein.
This is a reflection of his stance reported elsewhere:

Life as we know it is, among other things, dependent on at least 2000 different enzymes. How could the blind forces of the primal sea manage to put together the correct chemical elements to build enzymes?[4]"

<quoted text>Your understanding of statistics is inadequate. And your imagination regarding how such a thing likely happened is also lacking. Such a ribosome would not be constructed one nucleotide at a time as it is in vivo. In an environment where nucleotide exist and can join, we have a sea of fragments of various sizes - some six nucleotides long, some eight, some fourteen, and so on. The three hundred nucleotide sequence would likely form from a few dozen such pieces finding one another. That changes your mathematics radically.

From your own post at http://www.topix.com/forum/religion/atheism/T... :

"Time is in fact the hero of the plot. The time with which we have to deal is of the order of two billion years. What we regard as impossible on the basis of human experience is meaningless there. Given so much time, the “impossible” becomes possible; the possible probable, and the probable virtually certain. One has only to wait; time itself performs the miracles."

What are the odds of the parts of an infinite god finding one another without an intelligent designer? Zero? My money is on a gene existing without a god before a god existing without a gene.
So you're a betting man.

So those who go to heaven are supposed to want to go to hell and be unhappy with those who made the wrong choice?
Not me.
But I'd suggest you don't go to heaven then. If you want to be unhappy in hell with the millions who chose it for themselves, that's your right.
Choice? Like there is no book, and your name hasn't been written there-in? If your name is not there, can you do anything to get it put in? If your name is there, can you do anything that would get your name taken out?

What do you propose to do about your great granny's, great granny, making the choice to let the tinkers son have his way with her? If he had just hightailed without leaving that little dribble* behind, your great granny's, great granny's child would not have forced you to choose hell.

It's too bad for you and lucky for your spell casters that just about every human ever born has a bastard or twelve in just about every generation, so really nobody gets to go to heaven. No proof works best for the man with the sermon, and his pet politician.

Still if you are one of the three or four humans ever who meet every criteria, for admittance into heaven, I do hope you are male, Jewish, virgin and ready ..... cause, Dude the bridegroom cometh and you are the bride.

Your desperation is showing.

Screw your bible.

Join the real world. It's a wonderful place.
Back up the truck a bit there willy!
I am very familiar with string theory and the split in the science community.

The comment from KK was that string theory was not established. My question was what you just jumped all over me and called me desperate for asking a question about a 40+ year old well published scientific theory not being established. I would call string theory established maybe not fully excepted by the whole scientific community but I believe it is well established.

And yes there are many that don't think string theory is a slam dunk!

Such anger!

<quoted text>When you and Kitten can't find the words, you dismiss it with another “nothing” post. Hahahaha - way to go, atheists. I see that all the time – it's from atheist training school memo #101.

What's even funnier is that you both copied each other (or you copied her) and dismissed one point YOU made that I actually agreed with you on about the “prosperity gospel”. Had you been a faster thinker, you could have used that to your own advantage, but no, you hurt your own cause by missing the opportunity.

It's fool enough to be an atheist, but it takes an even bigger fool to shoot themselves in their own foot the way you do.
Don't forget on another thread KK posted she was also batty.

Later she denied that she was.
But some how the similarity of their post keeps say other wise.

How's that computer of yours working?
When do you suppose your god will be coming out with the next upgrade?
You often repeat yourself by asking repetitive questions.

Senseless parrots often do the same thing that you do, lol.

I don't have a "god".

The God I worship will not be upgrading his perfect word.

Computers, on the other hand, are like other things made by man. They often fail, they have to be constantly updated and maintained. Some computers, like the worthless theory of evolution, become obsolete and useless.
