Science's unverified hypothesis are the work of imagination, yet you have no trouble accepting these. Why would the idea of a god seem any less worthy of consideration?
No, scientific claims are backed by evidence. Ignoring the evidence doesn't make it go away, that only works for gods.

If you concede that something can exist long before the evidence of its existence is apparent, or perceived, then you should have no problem accepting the idea that God existed long before the earth was formed.
Until you notice that there is no evidence for the existence of a "god".

Stop trying to change the subject. Why should anyone accept god as anything more than the product of someone's vivid imagination?

Nope, if that was the case then why do scientists out the frauds so willingly? Even before being asked they will publish reports of the frauds. If what you said was true, they would never want people know of the frauds simply out of fear of being outed themselves.

Really? What evidence does science have that supports the notion that something comes from nothing?

You wouldn't of course, but others who do perceive that evidence would have reason to believe a god exists.

There is no topic. The forum is about nothing and completely reliant on others to have a voice. Most of you loons voted for this trainwreck so I don't have a problem reminding you of your idiocy on that front either.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.
The topic is:
"Atheists on the march in America".

Now, let's debate.
1. If god exists, there is evidence of his existence.
2. There is no evidence of his existence.
3. God does not exist.

Stump John! Ask him to debate.
Well, maybe one day his balls will drop, and he'll debate.

If the evidence was not objective, then exactly how would they go about ruling out the idea that they had imagined the evidence?

Now you're just stalling pussyassbitch. Your question is completely irrelevant in relation to mine. So again coward, why should anyone accept god as anything more than the product of someone's vivid imagination?

Aside from the fact that design in nature (specified complexity) necessitates a designer - billions of people believe a god(s) exist.

Well, we're here, aren't we? Our very existence is proof that something had to come from nothing somehow. The how is the question, you avoid the question with a non-answer, I'd rather wait until someone has a real answer before even considering it valid.

Why not? What we perceive as random rarely is, just because we don't know all the variables doesn't mean it was ever truly random. Rolling the dice is not random, we just cannot calculate all the factors, so we perceive it as random. Your mindset is so limited you cannot even accept this, to you even drawing a card from a deck is random.

There is a principle, a law actually, in probability that states the more often your make the prediction without even knowing the variables, your probability of making a correct prediction increases, simply by changing your prediction after eliminating one possibility. It's a very well understood law actually, and proves that nothing is truly random.
