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

Consciousness creates form anytime - anywhere. There is no fossil record to support the theory of evolution. If you are willing to believe the fable anyway - you should have no problem accepting the notion that Moses parted the Red Sea.

Don't think Christians are afraid of dying? LOL. They believe in god and heaven BECAUSE they are afraid of dying.

Christians have the promise of a heavenworld to work towards in life. Atheists have nothing.

"Many-worlds implies that all possible alternative histories and futures are real, each representing an actual "world" (or "universe"). It is also referred to as MWI, the relative state formulation, the Everett interpretation, the theory of the universal wavefunction, many-universes interpretation, or just many-worlds."

There is a fossil record that supports evolution, but no evidence Moses existed.

Large gaps in the fossil record that can't be explained away says you're full of it.

Buddists are not atheists. They don't identify God as a supreme being, but more of an exalted state of consciousness i.e. the clear light of the eternal Buddha They do accept the existence of beings in higher realms however. Devas.

Reincarnation will not save you. The ideas you harbor about the nature of reality in life will strongly color your after death experience for you will interpret events in the light of your beliefs. The fear of death itself can cause such a psychological panic that out of a sense of self-preservation and defense, an individual will lower his consciouness so that he laspes into a coma which may then take some time to recover after transition. Those who do not believe in life after death may find themselves in a state of limbo, the most hindering state of all.

The way they organize themselves obviously. How many times are you going to repeat the same silly mantra (life came from dead matter) under different identities? You don't prove anything. You simply sound like a broken record.
Atoms organize themselves based on their properties, they aren't doing it with intelligence or will, they react how they do all the time, whether in a living organism or in any other environment. Atoms are not alive, are they? If so, then the rocks that are made up of the same atoms we are live as well. Are rocks alive?

What "large gaps?" There will always be gaps, because not all changes will have an effect on the fossil.

There are indeed. They perceive their own reality.

Consciousness is fully capable of energizing, organizing and communicating with matter, including the brain, the body, and other material things. If scientists actually understood the dynamics of being for example, the mind/body relationship, illness would not be seen as a foreign agent thrust upon us.

The missing link is not exactly a needle in a haystack. If science is going to claim that man emerged from primates, the fossil evidence should prove it, but it doesn't.

Therefore, life on Earth came from non-life.
<quoted text>
I notice that you've provided no alternative scientific theory as to where life came from, if not from non-life. Why is that?
And you still can't prove what the catalyst was that created life from non-life. Until you do it is all just theoretical musing.

Just who or what is it that Buddhists believe is responsible for judging them and deciding whether they get to reincarnate, or not, and as "what"? I've studied Buddhism, BTW. "That" implies a supernatural consciousness making a judgement. You are not terribly bright.

I'm used to that on Topix.

Tell that to all the god-fearing parents who lose their children to terminal illnesses every day. Tell it to the people all over the world starving and praying for food. Yeah, you're more special than all of them.
(PS: your wife's feeling and 'amazing' ability is called adrenaline.)
Look, I can't explain why things happen as they do. I feel terrible for anyone losing a child.Believe it or not some of these experiences bring some closer to their faith as well as lead some to drift. The bible explains that all will be revealed in the end. My wife, although terrified, still does not feel ill will toward her attackers and has forgiven them. I,on the other hand admittedly had some difficulty forgiving them for what they did to my wife, but I found the strength in scripture. I am not a saint, but try to do my best daily.

The fossil record is littered in gaps and "lost" and missing pieces. Just for starters, where are all the pre existing evolutionary fossils for insects? Insects discovered in sap and supposedly millions of yrs old look exactly as they do today, exactly. Also bats, where are the relatives of bats? or any pre fossils of them?

I often wonder if these mouth breathing retards are really this ignorant or are they being purposely obtuse?

So you are using the Christian apologetic favorite argument of, if you don't believe in God why you always errr duh talking about him? Couple that with your attempts to divide non believers another apologetic favorite.

Sigh

You're not still pretending to be an agnostic right? Because that would just be wacky if you were miss I have an incurable disease but it just got cured.

The fossil record is solid and even if it weren't modern generic testing more than proves evolution.

Your sad apologetic creationist bat argument is going on 5 years disproven soundly.

I have seen this in the past, looks like just another extinct bat to me, no developing wings, or feet. Just another extinct bat.
