Almost five years in and the loons are still blabbing on about disbelief and ducking the fact no evidence in this arena meets their own criteria. Bigots and hypocrites will certainly not be the arbiters of evidence.

Now either get your nothing out of here or accept my challenge of comparing the evidences and reasons for belief in a prime mover vs ?????. Nothing ain't gonna cut it.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

Antitheists have no real way to measure evidence. Using their own standards has gotten them zero evidence. I've asked this many times before. It is ignored by the stumpees.
How does a nothing decide which is most or least likely: something from nothing, always was, prime mover. Show your work loons and make sure it adheres to your limiting paramaters.
Now rather than get bogged down in quibbling over what the standard for evidence is. Which is generous of me considering the hypocrisy of you bigots. I've suggested you make the case for your nothing and I'll make the case for my something. It's your forum and you can't even feign substance. The arguments for a prime mover scare you to death.
That's ok, I enjoy exposing your quackery.

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 65,160 posts to show otherwise.

Why the break in years at the same point that BC Before Christ and AD the year of our Lord broke the year down?
Why are your dates still centered around the life of Christ?
The Roman calender that was used at that time didn't recognize the number zero. That didn't come along until 500 years later.

Please explain your rating of sin.
I know of only one Sin God rates worse then all other. I have never seen a rating system for any other sin.

Bullsh7t.

The reason people lived, was because people tend to do that.

Bloodletting was just another True Believerô mumbo-jumbo.

Christianity discredits itself, just by trying to claim the BuyBull is "god's word".

That claim? That single claim? Is sufficient to prove "christianity" is a complete fraud.

Even though there are 100's of additional reasons showing christianity is fraud, that one claim is enough.

"It wasn't until well into the 19th century that people began to question the value of bloodletting. Scientists such as Louis Pasteur, Joseph Lister, and Robert Koch showed that germs, not humors, were responsible for disease. Furthermore, medical statisticians tracking case histories began to collect evidence that bloodletting was not effective. Eventually the practice died, although it continued in some parts of rural America into the 1920s."
