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 62,160 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True science that is repeatable and observable.

Still nothing about your nothing. Your inability to explain yourself reminded me of Obama tonight.

The noncase of the illogical nothing will not be made. In your own forum. How embarassing.

You don't believe in God. You believe in nothing. As this is your forum I'll wait for you to avoid the impossible.

Since you are so fixated on a God you don't believe in I even offered to compare my something vs ??????. Collectively you loons have avoided that since 2009. Thanks for being compliant in exposing you.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

Got to hand it the StumpJohngodspambot all this time and it's still making unsubstantiated claims and assuming pigeon chess victories. A+ for persistence.

I posted a coherent set of beliefs at the beginning of this thread. You refused to consider it because it didn't address the origins of the universe or of life on earth. But not all beliefs concern either of those--they don't even form the foundation of most religious beliefs.

Physics and biology are fascinating, but they don't lie at the center of my beliefs. I suspect that few outside those fields spend as much time pondering them as they do more immediate concerns such as the well-being of their loved ones, their communities, humanity as a whole and the planet on which we live.

I believe that most people do the best that they can within their limitations, which are often considerable. I believe that the most noble of human attributes are kindness, empathy, generosity, and willingness to set aside personal considerations for the grater good. I believe that the greatest obstacles to achieving a state of benevolence are anger, fear, ignorance, and delusion, i.e., the tendency to cling to obvious fallacies even in the face of overwhelming evidence out of sheer stubbornness. Some call this cognitive dissonance. I believe that people can help each other to overcome these obstacles.

I believe that art is just as important as science and that any society that focuses so much on either as to exclude the other is headed for trouble. I believe in the wisdom of replacing beliefs with knowledge wherever possible.

These are beliefs I am prepared to defend.

I believe in empty rhetoric and long winded diversions from the nothing. Oh, and puppies should live forever.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. The tireless.fight for nothing in the forum about nothing continues LOL.

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. You have placed limits on what may be limitless. You have placed limits where they need not be. 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 62,180 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!
