When South Florida atheists held their first meeting, they were just five friends, having a beer at a bar.

Science claims that religious idiots need to prove the gods they claim exist otherwise years liars.

That's how science works, it tries to get closer to how e work actually works. Your using a computer today that shows just how effective science is.

And in return you have zero evidence for god...and counting...

That's how f*cked up your anti science arguments are. Well what can we expect from a wilfully ignorant creationist?

What is the evidence that non-living matter is conscious?
Science can't disprove that consciousness creates form. That's the evidence.

"For the scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance and he is about to conquer the highest peak. As he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries." - Robert Jastrow, Former Director of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies

Drew your nothing is as illogical and silly as it was years ago. This is your forum. Are you ready to compare the evidences of your nothing vs my something?

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True science that is repeatable and observable.

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 62,720 posts to show otherwise.

"Recent news has shown that the majority of studies geared towards cancer research are inaccurate and fraudulent by nature. Findings published in the journal Nature show that 88% of major studies on cancer that have been published in reputable journals over the years can not be reproduced to show their accuracy. This means that the research findings published are flat out false.

Author of the review and former head of cancer research at Amgen C. Glenn Begley was unable to replicate the results of 47 of the 53 studies he examined. This suggests that researchers are fabricating their findings simply to create the illusion of positive findings instead of publishing their actual results. This ensures the continuation of their steady stream of funding and grants."

So much for peer review and science's noble search for the truth!

Confidence in direct proportion to the independently verifiable evidence available which supports a given scientific position.

Any given scientific position cannot be tested under every circumstance, so scientists never assume that ANY scientific position is infallible (ref: inductive reasoning). A scientific position is accepted as such only for as long as it provides independently verifiable predictive results and is supported by independently verifiable evidence.

Fundies often set up a sort of "Pascal's Wager" when it comes to the origin of the universe. And like the real Pascal's Wager, it sets up a false dichotomy. Either you know exactly how the universe was created via science and can answer any and all questions about it, or the buy-bull's Bronze Age creation myth must be literally true. I admit I don't know exactly how life, the universe and everything began. But I do know the creation story is Genesis is absurd. That story has plants growing before there is a sun. That is impossible. It has a woman being created with a rib from a man, that is impossible, because their DNA would be the same, and our gender is determined by our DNA.

Which in no way implies that just because science cannot detect something, that it cannot exist.

You don't need to know everything in order to know something. And the something we know thanks to science is that there's no such thing as the f*cking imaginary god that humans have been proven to have lied about since science came along and kicked the liars a$$es with evidence and experimentation.

That's what YOU imagine - not what science knows.

To the atheist, this life is all there is. That's why they are afraid of dying because it means total annihilation. For the religious, living has a purpose and dying is not an end. For the atheist, it's fade to black. Everything they accomplish in life of personal value is of no consequence. At death there will be nothing - as if their living never happened. For all life is worth to the atheist, he may as well live it as a toadstool.
