You make the presupposition that there is no evidence without admitting you do not have the scientifically measurable evidence to support your position of nothing.

Thus far I have seen no evidence provided by an atheist that would support what is disingenuously called natural mechanisms only. If you think there isn't evidence of design you would be wrong. Admittedly, this can not be proven using your constricting criteria, but nothing in this arena has been proven using this standard. You know this by now. That is why it is so frustrating to the forum when it's pointed out. Judging by the ever-growing anecdotal evidence of this forum overwhelmingly congregated by atheists, atheism is something else entirely. There is a large contingent of antitheists, a portion devoted to secular humanism, and some interplay with other assorted isms. The common denominator is that every single one of these positions is lacking in evidence. The notion that man is the be all end all is flawed in my opinion. Of course you wish to shirk any burden of proof. That's transparent and shows a weak position. Atheism has been co-opted by the new atheist. Much more vocal and commited to breaking down the populace writ large that actually do have a position. I've given more than enough opportunity for atheists to engage in debate that is not circular. The brilliance and weakness of atheism is no accountability. That's why it's not challenging to debate this topic with you loons. Apologies to the few that aren't driven by more than uncertainty. When Reagan debated Gorbachev on our nuclear arsenals each man had a position. If there was a political debate the political atheist would attack the other position and not have to be responsible for one himself. If one football team was atheist and the other was not they would have the ball on offense the whole game. Fumble, and the ball would be returned. This is what you ask for here, but is unacceptable in every other topic. I'm conservative btw. A rational freethinker. I'm sure you are a centrist LOL. What's the mushy middle thought on government size, abortion, tax rates?
If there isn't a position don't bother responding. How is the fence DREW, Curious, Mikey,,,,? You got the post wedged good and deep yet? Stump an antitheist! Ask it what it believes. Still going strong 62,080 plus posts in.
Still nothing about atheism in the atheist forum. No position, no post #. Lies, spin, ad hominem, and boredom.
Waiting for an example of what passes the cut for evidence from atheists. Cowards!
See you next post with no proof of god, liar.

One would reasonably think that you would have better things to do with your time than post in forums whose existence you don't approve of.

Wow did everyone see the huge spike in Americans age 30 and younger who now are calling themselves non religious? Sweet! This is the largest spike of Americans doing this in our history! Woot! 30%

The Godbots are seeing the writing on the wall slowly but surely the old irrational superstitious ways are on the decline!

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost three years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Three years without an example of evidence that meets their criteria for evidence. These are angry agenda driven folks that don't give a damn about the evidence.
If you want to subject yourself to this farce by all means see for yourself. Antitheists you could also just cut and paste one of the 62,090 posts to show otherwise.

Then explain why.

A normal person doesn't attend movies or watch TV shows that they see no purpose in.

A normal person does not spend time in bookstores in order to complain that they see no purpose in having the books.

A normal person does not attend the meetings of a club where that person sees no purpose for having the club.

So why would a normal person spend any time in a forum where they see no purpose in having the forum?

No. I feel no need to debate ridiculous strawmen when your forum has made no attempts at intellectual honesty. What do you believe in this arena Drew? I asked that in 2009. How about you produce some evidence or accountable position. It is your forum.

I don't have a forum. The forum belongs to Topix.

So why do you waste so much of your precious time here if you see no purpose in the existence of this forum?

I believe you are a bigot without a lick of evidence that meets your criteria. I believe you cannot and will not submit an accountable position to debate vs a prime mover. I believe you and your forum have been exposed.

Good luck with trying to demonstrate that. So far, you've failed.

As I'm not making a claim, why would I need evidence?
John wrote:

My accountable position is that there is a lack of evidence for a prime mover. But my position need not be defended until you actually provide any evidence, and so far, you're afraid to do so. We get that.(It's because you don't have any.)

It's not my forum. It belongs to Topix. And you've exposed nothing other than your own trollhood.

John, let us know when you are willing to debate.
Here is my position.
1. If god exists, there is evidence of his existence.
2. There is no evidence of god's existence.
3. There is no god.

So, let's start with point one.
Do you think it would be possible for god to exist, yet there be no evidence of his existence? Well? John? John?

Neither Drew nor Rose seem to understand the difference between belief and disbelief. No evidence. No claims. No purpose to this forum. Unless this nothing is about something else hmmm.

It's your forum guys LOL. How about we compare the evidences of your nothing vs my something. No Drew, you have failed; miserably. The beauty of it is that you demonstrate it all by yourself.

What do you believe Rose / Drew?
