"When atheism is unable to defend itself and bases itself on blind faith, speculation, unobservable hypothesizes and other evidenceless concepts it becomes an invalid position."

Seriously atheists, try harder. If you're going to attempt to argue that the universe and life came from nothing then use evidence.

"I don't see how the video destroyed my non-belief..."

It addressed the commonly proposed arguments for a godless naturalistic explanation for the universe and life. Those arguments are founded on blind faith and evidenceless. Deductive reasoning leads us to theism.

If there were any cogent arguments for a god-centered universe, we would, need no extraneous links or spurious videos to put them forth. They could be stated plainly in a single post or a series of them right here on this forum. I have yet to read any.

Atheism isn't based, you see, on the strength of science, whether biological, physical, or astronomical, however fascinating those subjects may be. No, it's based on the weakness of the arguments for that god-centered universe, arguments that rely on the gullibility of the listener more than on flawless logic based on demonstrable reality.

A person can be completely unaware of the principals of science and still see that ultimately, the reason always given is "Because I say so" or because some unimpeachable authority supports a theistic world view. Einstein is often cited, for instance, and even if those assertions weren't based on misunderstanding and misinterpretation, citing him as a source means nothing unless the words themselves stand on their own no matter who says them.

I have no interest in shaking anyone's faith. Others can live their intellectual/emotional/spiritu al lives as they please. But if anyone wants to change my mind about religion, I will require compelling logic and evidence that meet MY standards.

It is not enough that you find your own arguments to be persuasive. You are not a skeptic. I am.

The Messiah Story Has Been Around For Thousands Of Years The general assertion by the skeptical is that all of these elements—the virgin birth, significance of the solstices, the miracles, disciples, baptism, crucifixion, resurrection—along with many even more specific elements like Heaven and Hell, the soul, holy communion and others, were all seen before in multiple ancient pagan religions. http://listverse.c om/2013/03/23/10-r easons-for-man-to- leave-religion-beh ind/

To destroy the validity of being atheist, you are going to have to prove that babies are born fully indoctrinated. Atheism is just "not theist", nothing more, we are just not you the "theist". The "a" means not. As in the atheist is not theist, you know exactly what you were before you were indoctrinated. It is the indoctrination that changes you from an atheist to a theist.

"All life came from Mars."
Wow, you took points that only faintly support atheism and you "debunk" them. Congratulations! You haven't achieved anything. You haven't changed my beliefs. Talk about no life, if you have time to rant on the internet about beliefs that contradict yours. I'm not even going to bother proving anything to you. You wouldn't listen, because you are In-denial about life after death, and people getting punished for doing bad. That's why people accept religion, out of fear of death. The whole "hell" thing is just a scare tactic.

Unreasonable credulity and reasonable doubt have nothing in common.
religion is quite empty of reason to challenge reasonable doubt and denial.
Only reasonable acceptance can challenge reasonable doubt.
