At least there's SOME evidence that biological evolution is real. No matter how tenuous it is, it's still a far cry more evidence than there is for a magical **poof** from an invisible sky deity.
SOME evidence is enough to convince you that evolution is real and yet you have the gall to demand absolute evidence that God is real.
Your logic is rather skewed.

No, you obviously don't know what an ad hominem is.
My post was still a statement directed to the content of the post, not to the person.
An ad hominem is an attack against the CHARACTER of person.
It is also "appealing to feelings or prejudices rather than intellect." The word hogwash is your personal prejudice.

I'm certain god does not exist. If he did, there would be evidence of his existence. So much evidence, we wouldn't be having this debate.

Thought you got rid of me, eh?

Hey digitaldan! These atheistic loony's will try to block your posts if you challenge their fairy tales. That's how easily threatened they are by common sense.

Art is an act of the soul, not the intellect. No famous artists were atheists and most notable modern artists are agnostic primarily because of their close association with inexplicable inspiration. They knew and still know from personal experience that inspiration is not a product of the brain, but something that exists outside of it. They regularly tap into a stream of impressions that flows beneath the surface of normal consciousness.

Thanks for the warning. I'm quite familiar with the tactics of the delusional. I've got my tricks too. This isn't my first Topix rodeo.

There are many reasons why people call themselves atheists. In your case, your irreligious zealotry masks a fear of hell.
Provide any evidence at all that hell exists.

Not a good comparison.
And you don't even see why.
BTW, what about ANY evidence that god is real?

If God exists, hell exists. Science can't disprove the existence of God. That's evidence enough for many people.

I'd settle for ANY, as long as it's independently verifiable.

But you go ahead and make up whatever apologetic excuse you need to maintain your delusions.

This is Topix. I'm a Forum editor and even I can't "block" anybody's posts. Why do you feel such a need to create strawman arguments?

And if hell exists, your deity is a sadist and so is anybody who would even consider worshiping such a horrid deity.

Not into that whole "logic" thing are you?
Do you have any evidence hell exists, or not?
If you do present it, if not, why not just admit it?

Evolution has never been independently verified. When a scientific premise is flawed to begin with, entire fields of study based on that premise end up to be conclusively wrong.

Atheists are sadists. You only have to read Hitler's utterly incoherent neo-Darwinian ravings and remember his death camps to comprehend just how low atheistic immorality can go.

The point is, sadism can't be assigned to specific gods or cultures when you can find examples of it everywhere.
