The more secular a society the more people butchered. There is no rationality, logic, or evidence for your nothing. Poof, the giant spaghetti nothing assembles something from nothing in an ordered way that defies mathematical possibility LOL.

We get you don't believe in God. What do you believe in this arena? Nothing is the answer of course. You have no evidence for any possibility but focus in your own weird way on one....with transparent specificity.

Time and again you loons avoid any debate choosing instead to impotently attempt marginalizing something you don't believe in.

Rename the forum Nothings march for an agenda shirking all intellectual honesty.

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

Another day I ask this and another day of ineptitude from the believers. Answer the question or get your nothing out of here!

Except you haven't Rose. Provide any accountable position of belief that meets the evidentiary standards you hold others to. You, seriously don't expect me to debate nothing or whichever ridiculous assertion of the day you throw out?

Oh look, its another post from John with no proof of god in it. I bet the next one also has no proof of god in it.

When will John realise that he's lying about god?

As usual nothing but an attempt to steer the narrative to a God you don't believe in. This is an atheism forum. I've asked what you believe bigots.

Since you like to futilely mock a prime mover I offered to debate the reasons and evidences to believe in a prime mover vs any accountable position you care to explain. You don't want any part of that either. I don't debate nothing, but keep trotting it out lmao.

Give me Liberty- great name. Big supporter of our freedoms and amendments I suppose. Nah, probably another Obama kook.

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

Nope, the narrative is about the unfounded *belief* in a god. You know, the one you can't seem to find any evidence for?

There is no evidence for you Drew. Oh, I forgot about the Eiffel tower you gave as an example LOL. I have evidences and reasons from various disciplines that led me to my belief of something larger than us. What led to your bigoted brand of nothing?

Hmm, another antitheist that fears engaging in a debate. Back to you Drew. Tell us nothing.

Because *you* can't seem to identify any.

Why is that?

Did you look for some and come up empty-handed? And you're too embarrassed to admit it?

No, John, you obviously don't. Otherwise, you'd share it here.

You're empty-handed, and too embarrassed to admit it.

Your forum Drew. Assume all you want, you obviously want no part of my challenge. Just keep repeating your nonclaim. Everyone should have a hobby.

Nothing bless.

It seems no one's forum.
Believers and non believers share.

Topix's forum, John.

You're as much a guest here as I am. Of course, unlike you, I have enough self-respect for my arguments to register my name, while you're so embarrassed by your position, you choose to remain anonymous.

Funny!

Another bunch of tangents ducking your nothing. Still no evidence or accountable position in an atheism forum.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

Evidence supports claims. Atheism isn't a claim.

Of course, you know that *your* claim is groundless. That's why you can't produce any evidence for it.

My claim is you have no evidence in this arena that meets your own criteria. Evidence, logic, rationality are just words to you. Thanks for nothing Drew.

What do you believe, or do you need me to have a voice?
See ya stumpee.

You make the presupposition that there is no evidence without admitting you do not have the scientifically measurable evidence to support your position of nothing. You have placed limits on what may be limitless. You have placed limits where they need not be. Thus far I have seen no evidence provided by an atheist that would support what is disingenuously called natural mechanisms only. If you think there isn't evidence of design you would be wrong. Admittedly, this can not be proven using your constricting criteria, but nothing in this arena has been proven using this standard. You know this by now. That is why it is so frustrating to the forum when it's pointed out. Judging by the ever-growing anecdotal evidence of this forum overwhelmingly congregated by atheists, atheism is something else entirely. There is a large contingent of antitheists, a portion devoted to secular humanism, and some interplay with other assorted isms. The common denominator is that every single one of these positions is lacking in evidence. The notion that man is the be all end all is flawed in my opinion. Of course you wish to shirk any burden of proof. That's transparent and shows a weak position. Atheism has been co-opted by the new atheist. Much more vocal and commited to breaking down the populace writ large that actually do have a position. I've given more than enough opportunity for atheists to engage in debate that is not circular. The brilliance and weakness of atheism is no accountability. That's why it's not challenging to debate this topic with you loons. Apologies to the few that aren't driven by more than uncertainty. When Reagan debated Gorbachev on our nuclear arsenals each man had a position. If there was a political debate the political atheist would attack the other position and not have to be responsible for one himself. If one football team was atheist and the other was not they would have the ball on offense the whole game. Fumble, and the ball would be returned. This is what you ask for here, but is unacceptable in every other topic. I'm conservative btw. A rational freethinker. I'm sure you are a centrist LOL. What's the mushy middle thought on government size, abortion, tax rates?
If there isn't a position don't bother responding. How is the fence DREW, Curious, Mikey,,,,? You got the post wedged good and deep yet? Stump an antitheist! Ask it what it believes. Still going strong 64,260 plus posts in.
Still nothing about atheism in the atheist forum. No position, no post #. Lies, spin, ad hominem, and boredom.
Waiting for an example of what passes the cut for evidence from atheists. Cowards!

Again, John, atheism isn't a claim. Therefore, it needs no evidence.

Where is *your* evidence, John? Or are you withdrawing your claim?

A constant barrage of nitpicking and quibbling from atheists isn't a war against religion but an annoyance. Their endless circular arguments are not only tedious but counterproductive. What atheists need to do to make their secular Jihad worthy of notice is to study the world's religions so they can at least appear to know what they are talking about.

Spot on Wrathbone. You need a forum to cite a nonclaim over and over and over again LOL. Perhaps you have other interests bigot.

What claim Drew? I don't debate nothing. Absolutely nothing is evidence to you on this matter. Evidence is just a word. Like logic. Something from nothing is illogical. I don't believe in magic.

Thanks for being such a wonderful example for exposing antitheism.

A New York public school teacher who advised a school Bible Study club has filed a civil rights lawsuit against her school district after she was forced to remove all religious content from her classroom.
