My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh Catch Train To Sandringham For Christmas Holiday

The monarch donned a houndstooth coat

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh surprised commuters at London's King Cross when they took the train to Kings Lynn for their annual festive break to Sandringham this week.

They didn't take the train like us normal folk- they were driven all the way up the platform, right to the door of their first class carriage. As you do.

Commuters were apparently gobsmacked when they realised why they weren't allowed to pass through ticket barriers. They soon figured out that they were travelling with royalty when the official car pottered along besides the train.

Never fear, the Queen paid for the train tickets in advance using her senior railcard. Very economical.

You are a low-grade moron, obviously.
THANK YOU! It's an insult I deserve for being so sure about the Divine Presence. I love HIM so. Anything in this world couldn't possibly reach the richness, the fullness and the happiness I feel from HIM.HE MADE ME WHO I AM. and that keeps me going. LOVE is all around. You have to open your mind and HEART to sense IT. It's worth it. There's a Light nothing nor anything, not anyone turns off.
No 'wasted' talk, it's Christmas! Have a MERRY One.

To be fair, he is also brain-damaged from excessive illicit drug use...

... between the two? It's a wonder he has sufficient brains left to remember to breathe when he's over-stressed by the "complexity" of ... walking.

I suspect he often passes out from forgetting.

Simple: the 100%**lack** of evidence is more than ample proof that there are no such thing as gods.
It's the missing elephant in the room.
But I doubt you can comprehend why that is more than adequate proof.
How you say there is "lack" of 100 % evidence of the presence of God?

If you see a thing existing in front of you, it MUST have some one who made it. Is this not AMPLE proof?

Either things created themselves or they came by chance. There is no third option.

Both these options are without any Proofs!!

The evidence is
1) when we ask you for evidence about the god you lied about, you don't have any
2) The explaination you give for your god is nothing short of psychotic
3) Evolution is a fact which you idiots deny and don't even understand.
There's the evidence that there's no god.
Now, its your turn, you need to:
1) Present evidnce of the god you're lying about
2) Present valid proof, not some stupid philosophical bullsh*t
3) Present valid evidence against evolution based on facts and evidence.
See? No religious person can do this and this is why they are all liars, just like Einstein said.
It is YOU who has to bring proofs that things created themselves or that they came by chance.

It is YOU who are denying reason and logic by asking us to bring proofs.

If you look at things in this universe, there are Billions upon Billions of proofs of God's Existence, but you have to OPEN your eyes first!!

No.

You are operating under a false idea that everything has to be created.

It doesn't.

Quantum-mechanics proves this very well-- many events are un-caused, and therefore, have no creator.

So right off the bat?

Your claim is flawed.

Following your own argument one would infer that your God also must have been created if he has been existing..
Why do you think that things are necessarily created by a conscious being?Your argument doesn't hold any philosophical merit unless you're talking about the intelligent design.
There is no need to prove that things had came by chance as you don't need to explain something that happens randomly esp. when there is no proof of God.

You've been saying this since the beginning but you have yet to come up with one of those zillion proofs.

No evidence of god. If god is real what made god? No evidence of that either. Welcome to reality.

You're the idiots that invented god, you need to prove it instead of asking the same question back to atheists like a moronic monkey that doesnt understand logic.

God is Energy and it created the Lord, Gods wife. Isaiah 54:5 "For thy Maker is thine husband..." The Lord in the flesh is called the Messiah or "anointed one". There will probably be a marriage ceremony. Our sun is the source of Energy for the universe and it's called the "bridegroom". Isaiah 19:4-5. "But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces..." Daniel 11:38.

me too! those are the traditional Holiday Greetings since our desperate scramble to discard CHRIST from that Holy Nativity Night, followed by a Happy Family Day. Not even: The Babe was born to bring GOOD TIDINGS TO THE WORLD, tidings of joy, love, happiness, no dishing out despair. nor gloom. Let's share the joy of Christmas with everyone, YOU, maker yourself happy tonight and not at the expense of others but YOU, yourself be the Santa expected by the few, penniless, homeless found around the corner. Let those gifts from you to them be a sincere wish for joy. If you have a heart that beats, get with it and enjoy the TIMES of the Season. Look forward to the NewYear. Remember YOU, take carel Someone looks after us.
