Yep. Avoided and exposed. What do you believe? Give an example of evidence that meets your criteria. Your nothing is up.

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 62,380 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!

Nope, answered, and you didn't like the answer. So it's pointless for you to keep asking the same question that has already been answered.
John wrote:
What do you believe?
About *what*? The origin of the Universe? I believe that there is insufficient evidence to support any particular belief as to its origin.

Now, if you think that you have sufficient evidence to support some particular belief regarding the origin of the Universe, then demonstrate that evidence.

If you can't, then why are you even in this thread?

If Rose had a conscience she would have evidence of it.
There is no evidence Rose has a conscience

If you were, you would not believe in god, because it's irrational to believe in something when there is no evidence to back up that belief.

So, John, could god exist yet we have no evidence of his existence?

Still waiting for an accountable position of belief. Your tangents do little to mask the irrationality of your nothing.

Of course not everyone agrees do they Drew? Kind of like like your suggestion for the evidence. Not answered BTW.

Nothing is a scientific possibility.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

If you don't like the answers why do you keep coming here turdlicker? Do you really think an atheist is going to say.., I believe in Jesus and his magic fish! When you ask your brain dead question?

Sorry it's not going to happen reject. You believe in Jesus and his magic fish, not us.

You're the one with nothing.

No evidence.

No facts.

No logic.

No reality.

Thanks for more nothing. It's hilarious pseudointellectuals have went three years lashing out at a God they don't believe in. Only loons have a forum about nothing.

If your insistent on futilely attempting to marginalize something you don't believe in I would love to compare reasons for that something vs your nothing. That scares the piss out of you obviously.

Intolerant bigotry is ironic coming from liberal atheists.

I never did much care for the liberal atheists either, but us conservative atheists need the balance they offer in order to keep the roads paved. A necessary evil if we ever want capitalism back and corporatism gone. Though I still wish the people with god delusions would just stop perverting the language so much, makes it difficult to actually get a point across when "conservative" means "god delusion" and "liberal" means "intelligent."

Then where is it? We keep asking for it and all people ever give is some dusty old book, that's not evidence, that's the assertion. You can't support an assertion with that same assertion, because then you lose the ertion.

The problem rests when you attempt to bring your god inside nature and into our world.
There he fails all the tests that science and logic have.

----------
The overwhelming majority of mankind throughout history believe in God. So by scientific and psychological definition---YOU ARE NOT ONLY GROSSLY ABNORMAL BUT DELUSIONAL--as you cannot comprehend what everyone else does.
You see, this is the problem with the severe dysfunction of the atheist mind. They have become detached from reality and by denying what is plain to everyone they're minds are distorted beyond recognition. This is why they are so hostile, trying to confirm their own pathological bias daily on the internet. They MUST do this because God churns up the truth in them every day-- planting that little seed of truth that destroys the prior days confirmation bias that allowed them sleep last night.
They will believe in the craziest things like "we have no freewill" which deny their very opinions and scifi, dungeons and dragons dribble like multiverses--that the world just self assembled consciousness. Ludicrous desperation all the live long day, swearing we're the ones who are irrational. Its milk coming out your nose type stupidity yet the OJ Simpson jury see's what it must to avoid the truth. On the first stage of grief is where you stand in the mud of your own filthy world view.
I feel so sorry for them as they are willingly standing in the line for hell and enjoy being there. Unless they turn they will come to nothing, standing before a God who loved them and reached out his hand to them as they spit in His face. They have revealed themselves fully...they are not moved by Christ's message of love and spend every waking minute ridiculing Him and those who love him back.
We are put here with the sole reason to reveal how we will respond to this message of Christ and you have shown that it cannot penetrate your cold dead heart.

You were demonstrating a schizophrenic talking to god hallucinations right?

Otherwise you need some croutons with that word salad.
