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

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.

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?
Get your nothing out of here!
Here is my accountable position. Again.
1. If god exists, there is evidence of his existence.
2. There is no evidence of his existence.
3. There is no god.

No matter how many times I post my accountable position, and ask you to debate, you won't.
I ask you, let's start with point 1.
OK?
Do you agree or not?
You won't answer. I know that, as does anybody who has followed this forum for more than 2 days. I just want new comers to see how you dodge.

Stump John, ask him to debate.

That's disbelief Rose. We spent about a year covering that. Slow learner or bigot that needs a God you don't believe in to have a voice. I guess you don't have any accountable position of belief in this arena. Keep attacking believers specifically among the thousands of other things you don't believe.

If Rose had a conscience there would be evidence of one.
There is no evidence Rose has a conscience.
Rose has no conscience.

Your nothing cult is ridiculous. I expect nonsense from Obama voters like yourself.

Christianity in the US is powerful.
Easter and Christmas breaks in public school.
Bible clubs quite legal under First Amendment.

It is uncertain how many Presidents used a Bible or added the words "So help me
God" at the end of the oath. FDR did for the 4th time.

So you think that the only purpose of a Topix forum is to cite claims?

See what I mean? John won't debate. I asked him if he agreed with my first statement, "If god exists, there is evidence of his existence" but he won't answer, he just copy/pastes this same post.

Stump John, ask him to debate.

Another day I ask my question and another day the theists like John run away creaming with urine runnin down their cowardly leg!

Get your nothing out of here losers!

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

Stump a theist ask why they believe!

That is inaccurate. It is human nature, and all animals really, to be species-centric. "Self" centered is actually opposing nature and our social traits.
I didn't say that it was human nature to be completely self centered. Mostly self centered would be more accurate.
