Furthermore, there is the *possibility* that there is an intelligent race in the multiverse with the technology to create universes and that ours is one of these created universes. By at least one definition, this would mean there is a God (although other definitions would be violated). Such a 'God' need not be all-powerful, all-knowing, a source of morality, or even be aware of the life that exists in the created universe.
And so we are back to definitions.
Nope. Impossible. Skippy said so. So there.

Seriously-- the **practical** conclusions are both the same.
Indeed. The multiverse has little affect on my life (to my knowledge). Yet cosmologists entertain it anyway...

But Skip says there's no evidence so multiverse is impossible.

Oh wait, no. He said it ONLY applies to God (for some reason), therefore God is impossible. Everything else, multiverse, aliens, fairies... all possible.

Understandable.

Don't worry, it was literally the thread linky claiming that atheists are gay. That's it.

Ah well, I guess this solves the mystery of who Skippy's groupies are.

It happens that they sued a Christian photographer, baker and florist because they wouldn't participate and support a same sex marriage. They would have been forced to participate; where's the toleration for our Christian neighbors, friends and acquaintances?

<quoted text>well, that sort of God would be more plausible than the nonsense notion of an allgoodallpowerful one, which glorifies evil and calls it good. I often think about the horrid possibility that every human work of fiction, in writing or film or whatever, could create its own reality in another dimension - or that at each point in time a change could be made that would alter future events. Both would likely be worse than what we have now.(which is plenty bad enough, in my view).
Robert A Heinlien's "The Number of the Beast" universe?

I agree with you.

On the other hand?

The current front runners in the god-game?

**DO** have explicit sexual behaviors associated with them-- and none are very nice, either.

So being an atheist, you automatically get to remove those ugly sexual deviant ideas that are promoted by the current god crowd.

Nope. I do not attend church-- haven't been inside one for service in more than 8 years, now.

Seriously.... do you just make random guesses?

Have you ever read any of Robert A Heinlein's books?

Specifically, the novella called "Methuselah's Children", and the follow-on novels that take place after that one.

In that larger-than-life story arc, the characters meet a planet were there really are gods-- or so it appears at first glance.

They are eventually asked to leave--and indeed, are swept away from that planet with godlike speed.

In a much later story, one of the main characters, Lazarus Long, talks about the "god planet" and how he and a buddy of his later went back to that planet, and killed all it's gods--freeing the slaves living there.

Long observed that although the newly freed slaves were polite about it (and dutifully thanked them), they seemed unhappy about losing their gods at the same time.

I always thought that story snippet could have been deeper-- and interesting thing to think about.

Correct. They do not have the right to be bigots in public.

The lawsuit was correct.

Right next to the tolerance for the KKK, the NeoNazis and the Skinheads.

Hate and bigotry is intolerable.

You post "Hate and bigotry is intolerable" but yet both live in many of your comments.

It should not bother you nor give you reason to attack someone if they believe in God no more than it Should bother Brian G if someone is gay and wants to get married to the same sex.
