You might as well scream, "I'm stumped!" Aren't you tolerant of homosexuals?

Get your nothing out of here!

John's a resident troll. We've all had the experience of trying to have adult conversation with him. And all to no avail. Thought I'd let you experience him yourself before noting that is really does no good to feed this troll.

He's got a canned post that he'll put up once a week or so and that's all he's capable of. Been going on for over a year now that I know of.

Well, maybe I need to speak to him in his own language. So here goes:

"John, it is painfully obvious that your dichotomy is extinct to the point of rapture. Admit it, coward! You and your incessant co-religionists are unable to verify the very tenants of your verification. Therefore, you have something. So take your something, and shove it! But alas, your seemingly non-essential reliance upon essential reliance has been your undoing, both here and in the heretofore. Coward! But I will no longer deign to aspire to your metaphysical untowardness as it seems, in a word, supercalifragilistic. Liar! Let us also remember that your esoteric diaphram, needlessly derived from the bacillus of truth, can only lead to ruptured testicles. This is the conundrum for which there is no alimony. You seek, then you expostilate, without motion or memory. Fruitcake! And so, I bid you two hearts and a club, for your failure to explore the recesses of my aorta has grown tiresome. Nosepicker!"

Well, how was that? Do I win the "John sound alike" contest?

Translation- We will post anything at all we think will marginalize believers and mask our nothing. Actually, for true freethinkers I asked simply what these folks believed. It is their forum. The ducking, obfuscating, and lengths they have gone for over THREE years is prima facie evidence of their lunacy.

Most in here are decidely antitheist. I offered hundreds of times to debate the evidences and reasons I believe in a prime mover vs any accountable position they choose. No takers. No surprise. You see, absolutely nothing is proof in this arena to them. They have rules though LOL. It is they that find it necessary to inject a God they don't believe in. I simply asked a question and it devolved from there.

How does an antitheist quantify the likelihood of always was, alien seeding, prime mover, something from nothing. Show your work and make sure it meets the evidentiary standards you hold others to.

Now sit back and wait for the nothing.

Why do you keep proving the generalization correct? If you don't want the generalization made, then prove it wrong.

Atheism is responsible for more death than all of the religions combined. I prefer facts!

Focus on atheism now. This is an atheism forum.*crickets*

Here is the bottom line, Ace. You believe in an invisible super-hero. And you are angry that some of us are not big enough suckers to share your belief. I suspect that the reason your post is so verbose is that you think that by piling up enough words, you can obscure the fact that, far from being a "rational freethinker", your are a superstitious dolt. Being pompous about it doesn't help. It just means you're a pompous, superstitious dolt.
(dusting off my hands) Ok, I'm done with you.
How about scientists who support the idea of Intelligent Design, are they also pompous dolts in your narrow minded world of bigoted opinions?

Murray Eden of MIT, a mathematician, believes that life could not begin by "random selection," which is the basic pillar of evolutionary teaching. He said "that if randomness is set aside, then only "design" would remain, and that would require purposive planning by an Intelligence." He demonstrated mathematically that it would be impossible for even a single ordered pair of genes to be produced by DNA mutations in the bacteria, E. coli, with 5 billion years in which to produce it!

C.H. Waddington, a prominent British evolutionist, scathingly attacked neo-Darwinism, maintaining that "all it proved was that plants and animals could have offspring!"

Right off the bat, Einstein was not a creatard, he was a deist too, not a christian. I suspect the rest of that list is also a lie.

So John why should anyone accept god as anything more than the product of someone's vivid imagination?

Let the nothing continue as this question has stumped all the theists on here.

Because atheism offers nothing better. The fantasy about the existence of no God is not only obtuse, but uninventive.

What a lame dodge! get your nothing out of here! Atheism just means you don't believe in deities. It has nothing to do with answering specific questions. And looking to your imaginary friend for answers is childish and low IQ.

Stop dodging and stalling why should anyone accept god as anything more than the product of someone's imagination?

Is there really any sense in asking the same question when you have no intention of accepting an anwser? It's not only redundant but counterproductive.
