Yes and the is a good indicator as to why they are coming after us. Their ways are dying and we are the cancer known as reason :)

Here is my accountable position.
1. If god exists, there is evidence of his existence.
2. There is no evidence of his existence.
3. There is no god.

Anybody willing to debate?

You are of the authority to lay down rules that God must follow?

Debate? What this crap? LOL

Of course this has no evidentiary relevance. My goodness you bigots are hateful. You don't give a damn about evidence.

Nothing again from the illogical, irrational, marchers for nothing.

If dinosaurs didn't exist in your 6,000 years, then why do we have the fossils?

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 64,840 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!

It's not a presupposition so long as you continue to present none, it is fact.

Provide some evidence of god's existence, and we'll get started.

Yes, but I doubt he's aware if it. To have awareness of such, one needs to be sentient.

He does not qualify.

Oh, any number of non-godbots have offered. On the first day he posted, I answered ALL of his inane questions.

I foolishly believed he was sincere, and an actual human being.

Now, my working hypothesis is that he's severely brain-damaged to the point of non-sentience. In an institution somewhere or other, or perhaps just a collection of computer code.

Could be! But he doesn't seem complex and sophisticated enough to be a collection of computer code.

Lots of claims from the loons. Still no evidence that meets their own criteria. No accountable position. No intellectual honesty. Just hate for a God they don't believe in. Sad, really.

March,.march, march, march, 4 nothing!

Provide some evidence of your nothing. If you loons had an ounce of self respect you would have let this forum about nothing die long ago. I don't mind exposing you and making you dance like puppets though. Don't carry on. As you weren't.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

They are taught to be sheeplike. Herd mentality waiting to be sheared. Look in their eyes and see a programmed drone.

When you look at us from early tribal people to today you can see we are hunters. Clever, resourceful, doing what we need to do for us and our tribe to survive and progress.

Let them be sheep my friend, we'll be hunters :)

Hunt for some evidence that meets the evidentiary standard you hold others to. It just annoys you to know end that man is not the pinnacle of existence LOL. The false hybris you attempt is comical. The great anti 2nd amendment, bigot hunter. You couldn't catch a cold.

Still no evidence or accountable position in an atheism forum. Mine is a prime mover btw.

Nope, that isn't proof of god either, you can stop lying now. After thousands of years, you shouldn't be surprised that your cult is shrinking.
