Math?

That is a skill no True Believer™ can possess-- it requires logic.

What kind of an intelligent being would design DNA with such a poor efficiency?
The same kind (priests) who would think that threatening a parent to cook and eat thier children, was going to bow them down. The men wielding the god-myth tool, really don't get it. Threaten a child, and a real parent will face down and destroy even a god. That in itself is proof that no parent god exists in the Abrahamic god-myths.

Good observation!
Ishmael was to sacrifice his child until Allah sent a poor sheep(which didn't have its say) to get sacrificed.
So I am wondering if Muslims would have been sacrificing their children had the sheep never came to risk its life.
Poor Sheep!:(

LOL...I hate to break it to you, but I'm an atheist and I still have birthdays.
WTF are you talking about?
H
That's what I am saying, If the government were to ban religion they would have to take away every aspect of it..

Believe me religious beliefs are in almost everything .

Have you ever wondered why birthday celebration s include singing gifts and birthday wishes.

If religion is to be gone than simply every aspect of would have to go.

Religion is flawed just like science but without them human society would fall.


A world without religion hahaha you think we have it tough now ... The world would go In to a great tribulation.

The only dumb sh*t here is you, with no proof of god, trying to drop Einstein into your paragraph with no luck.
We can't depend on humans period. gods do exist , anything you worship can be a god. Presidents, look at south Korea.

The Roman Caesars, The egyptian pharaohs etc

Now if he is trying to evidence of gods yes they exist but if is trying to prove the God of the bible Jehovah. Which is supposed to be the same God the Jews and muslims worship..however they don't go along with bible teachings..instead they rely on man made teachings and they never say the divine name instead they use titles

God , Allah are just titles. For example if I say brother or dad. Their are billions of dads and brothers.

Now the God of the bible is Yahweh or Jehovah and the name means causes to create or become. And the word human means of the earth

So if you are a true christian than evidence of Jehovah would be the things created.

Offcourse if you are atheist than this wouldn't mean anything to you.

But to answer your question , yes physical gods to exist but if you are looking for evidence of the divine God Jehovah, than he would likely be way out of our universe.

Either way we can't say that he does or doesn't exist.

Humans can't answer every question . Atheist have been around for centuries.
Its nothing new .

There's a no proof of god, widening the definition of god to brother or dad is meaningless gibberish. The liars must prove their god, or stop polluting the planet with lies, that is all that needs to happen.

HUMANS CAN'T ANSWER EVERY QUESTION.

To date man has answered many questions and continues to do so through inteligent research experiments and the application of logic.

The tragedy is that this work and the quest for answers has been held back by supersticion and fear for centuries.

Thankfully man as a species continues to move gradually forward as he throws of the man made shackles of religion.

Truth is not what majority of people believe.It is the one that never contradicts other proven facts and meets with our reasons.

The Lords Spiritual

26 bishops of the Church of England sit in the House of Lords. Known as the Lords Spiritual, they read prayers at the start of each daily meeting and play a full and active role in the life and work of the Upper House.

God Save the Queen !

Don't credit me with your god's filth.

Leviticus 26:29

The mumbo jumbo as you have designated it, is the holy bible. So yeah, just look.

You are not a lurker, and since no one knows who the lurkers are, or what they think ... maybe you should read the buybull, instead of attempting to smear me.

The bible already had the water cycle mentioned at Ecclesiastes 1:7

Also the book even says the earth is in space laying upon nothing Job 26:7

These men knew these things before many modern scientists knew them.

These threads about religion ending etc is already foretold in the bible.
It describes false religion as the great harlot that sits on many waters , influences the people, responsible for the deaths of many, constant association with political affairs .All of this is in chapters 16,17, 18 of the bible.

It even describes how it will happen, etc

The very signs mentioned, they are happening now. The U.N which the bible depicts as the wild beast is going to destroy it, the bible says the wealth of her will be plundered, etc

Everyone will know that is from God because this will global thing. The bible describe s it in great detail .

Its sad that many people have been killed and many of the man made teachings have resorted in corruption but it is going to end.

The problems of false religion if left up to men kind would take to long to end.
