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

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 65,120 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!

On paper it works, but not in reality. There is no evidence in fossils or experiments that mutations create "new" forms.
The theory of evolution has gone the way of gravity, accepted as an ultimate law, mathematically and physically defined but unresolved into any causes.
Law of gravity is still applicable though, and it was only overturned by a better law, not discarded. Just like the theory of evolution has evolved. The difference is, there is more evidence of it, genetic lineage tracing is also part of the mountains of evidence you ignore.

Bloodletting, one of the oldest "voodoo" medical practices around is making a comeback. In fact, it is the only treatment for hemochromotosis, a genetic mutation.
Sure, but unless you have enough blood, you will only get sicker. It only works when you either replace the lost blood ... or you have extra. So it's not the same technique at all.

Nope. The most charitable organization in the history of mankind. Responsible for feeding and clothing millions. Grind your axe somewhere else bigot.

You are quick to comment on others belief but when it comes time to answer for your absurd nothing forum you got nothing.

How do you decide which is most or least likely: something from nothing, always was, prime mover. You don't have a damn clue. Your decisions are based on an agenda not evidence. This forum is the furthest thing from freethinking. Go find something worthwhile to do, your nothing is ridiculous.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

The National Prayer Breakfast, The Fellowship Foundation, aka. The Family, aka. The Christian Mafia EXPOSÉ: THE “CHRISTIAN” MAFIA
Where Those Who Now Run the U.S. Government Came From and Where They Are Taking Us
Another pro-Nazi Christian fundamentalist group that arose in the pre-Second World War years was the Moral Rearmament Movement. Its leader was Frank Buchman, a Lutheran minister from Philadelphia. Buchman was a pacifist, but not just any pacifist. He and his colleagues in the United States, Britain, Norway, and South Africa reasoned that war could be avoided if the world would just accept the rise of Hitler and National Socialism and concentrate on stamping out Communism and Socialism. Buchman coordinated his activities with Vereide and his Prayer Breakfast Movement, which, by 1940, had spread its anti-left manifesto and agenda throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Buchman was effusive in his praise for Hitler. He was quoted by William A. H. Birnie of the New York World Telegram,“I thank Heaven for a man like Adolf Hitler, who built a front line of defense against the anti-Christ of Communism.”[1] Buchman also secretly met with Heinrich Himmler, the head of the Gestapo and controller of the concentration camps. Buchman was at Himmler’s side at the 1935 Nazi Party rally in Nuremberg and again at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The predecessor of Buchman’s Moral Rearmament Group, the Oxford Group, included Moslems, Buddhists, and Hindus. Buchman and Hitler both saw the creation of a one-world religion based largely on Teutonic, Aryan, and other pagan traditions mixed with elements of Christianity. Buchman saw Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism as being compatible with his brand of Christianity. Hitler, too, had an affectation for Islam and Buddhism as witnessed by his support for the Grand Mufti

Get your google on! Bloodletting (now called phlebotomy) is not just for hemochromatosis, doctors and researchers are examining phlebotomy as an aid in combating heart disease, high blood pressure, and pulmonary edema. The lesson for medical science is a simple one, there is much more that the scientific community doesn't understand than there is that it does understand.

When will theists stop using what science doesn't know as an excuse for selling what religion lies about?

Ummm, except that they were bloodletting for reasons that we know were false.

it may be funny that we now know it may help for some things, but they were not onto anything mystical or magical, they were killing more people than they were helping because they were acting upon myths...
