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

Septic,
Or should I call you Tank for short?
Play with this for awhile if its not to tough for you.
"Evolutionists generally believe that although the spontaneous generation of life from non-living matter was a highly improbable event, the amount of time available is long enough to overcome this problem. This fallacy is because they (and most of us, really) just haven’t gotten around to some actual calculating on some of these problems.
The difficult thing is to conceive the size of some of the figures obtained. James F. Coppedge in the bookEvolution: Possible or Impossible? has given some fascinating examples, one of which is here presented. Consider first this statement from the evolutionist George Wald writing on The Origin of Life in the Scientific American (1954):
Time is in fact the hero of the plot. The time with which we have to deal is of the order of two billion years. What we regard as impossible on the basis of human experience is meaningless there. Given so much time, the “impossible” becomes possible; the possible probable, and the probable virtually certain. One has only to wait; time itself performs the miracles.
Now using Coppedge’s figures, let’s take a look at the time it would take for one simple gene to arrange itself by chance. Remember, natural selection cannot operate until a self-replicating system is produced. Of course, this gene by itself is still only a dead molecule in the absence of other genes and other complex chemicals all perfectly arranged in time and space. Nevertheless, let us use as many sets as there are atoms in the universe. Let us give chance the unbelievable number of attempts of eight trillion tries per second in each set! At this speed on average it would take 10^147 years to obtain just one stable gene. What does this number really mean? Let’s look at Coppedge’s example; assume we have an amoeba—and let’s assume that this little creature is given the task of carrying matter, one atom at a time from one edge of the universe to the other (though to be about thirty billion light years in diameter). Let’s further assume that this amoeba moves at the incredible slow pace of one Angstrom until (about the diameter of a hydrogen atom) every fifteen billion years (this is the assumed age of the universe assigned by many evolutionists). How much matter could this amoeba carry in this time calculated to arrange just one usable gene by chance? The answer is that he would be able to carry 2 x 10^21 complete universes!
This means that all the people living on earth, man, woman and child, counting day and night, would be counting for five thousand years just to count the number of entire universes which this amoeba would have transported across a distance of thirty billion light years, one atom at a time.
Coppedge’s book makes fascinating reading in other respects and is one of the few works that really comes to grips with this matter of molecular biology and probability mathematics.
Evolutionists would have us believe that modern molecular biology lends its support to their world view, but the more information comes to hand, the more preposterous the whole idea of a naturalistic origin of life becomes."

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost three years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Three years without an example of evidence that meets their criteria for evidence. These are angry agenda driven folks that don't give a damn about the evidence.
If you want to subject yourself to this farce by all means see for yourself. Antitheists you could also just cut and paste one of the 64,800 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True
science that is repeatable and observable.
oh look its more lies from the liar with no proof of god.

I'd say "go for it", except from the fact that I'm not as bloody-minded as the BuyBull's worshipers.
And, as I suspect, neither are you.
It's one of several differences between Non-believers and True Believers.
Non-believers tend to be nicer to people who are different.
True Believers, such as Nothing-John tend to try to murder anyone different.
As they did in the past all too often.
You are exactly right. I brought up the story of the horrendous murder of the priest of Baal to show the hypocrisy of Chistians. They see no issue with the murder of the priests of Baal for failing to show evidence, but their god has never showed evidence of his existence either. How will they feel if someone massacred the pastors of the earth like the priests of Baal were?
But us atheists do not have to turn to violence to rid ourselves of the "Priests of Baal." Every year more and more people are leaving the church and becoming non religious because they are calling for God to show them evidence and the dead beat dad is refusing to show any.

The definition of crazy is having a forum about nothing that needs something it doesn't believe in to exist. There are people of all types who have stumbled in here. You have exposed and marginalized yourselves with bigoted attacks on a God you don't believe in.

I do enjoy watching my hateful puppets fall short of every evidentiary standard they hold other to. Let's compare the reasons/evidences for your nothing vs my something. Cowards.

March, march, march, stomp, hate, march, nothing, march, stomp,

More and more evidence everyday of a prime mover from a variety of disciplines. There is a reason you cowards won't dare bring an accountable position of your own to debate. I don't debate nothing and that's all you got. Doesn't stop you dullards from repeating it though does it?

Nope. Reading his wiki, it shows he is pretty much a moron.

A highly educated moron to be sure-- but that's not all that unusual.

He's still a creationist-moron.

Yes, that is true-- slow education of the young people has opened their eyes to the lies that is all religion.

The truth, however odd, however weird, always trumps lies (religion) in the end.

I do not believe in god, because you have no facts to support the god hypothesis.

I have asked you--repeatedly-- for these facts you claim to have.

You always run a way like the little sh7t-coward you are.

Always.

Without fail, you run and hide--

-- still no FACTS from you.

In 5 years or so-- NOT ONE FACT FROM YOU.

Not one.

Wow.

1000's of posts by you-- NOT A SINGLE ACTUAL FACT.

Is that a new record?

You don't believe in God Bob so why do you keep bringing it up.? You also don't believe in intellectual honesty. How does Bob rank the following in terms of evidence: always was, something from nothing, prime mover. You don't have a damn clue Bob.

I guarrantee not one of those links has an accountable position of belief that meets the evidentiary standard you hold other to. Those are likely years worth of reworded nothing you are too embarassed to put up. Your lies tell true freethinkers all they need to know.

Look how hard these Obama voting loons fight for nothing. What a sickness!

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

Where is this evidence you speak of? So far nothing but assertions has been presented. If you do not present actual evidence, then you are lying.

Wasn't it you that demanded videotaped evidence LOL. You will certainly not be the adjudicater of what is and isn't evidence. You loons have given your rules for evidence, but have no example of it in this arena.

Get your nothing out of here. This is your forum. I have no desire to debate nothing. I will debate the evidences and reasons for belief in a prime mover vs ???? You want no part of this challenge though do you bigot. You skipped over your nothing again.
