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 whaet 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.
Atheists don't do evidence or questions. They do vote Obama. Evidence isn't important. Agenda is. Whack dack a doodle.

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 65,480 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!

Lmao!!!! Antitheists need some science lessons. Antitheists need some logic lessons. Antitheists need some evidence that meets their own criteria. I need more string for my marionettes LOL.
Absolutely no evidence or accountable position since 2009. That's 65,000 posts and years spent trying to steer the narrative to others making a case for a God they don't believe in. Your illogical nothing cannot be hidden.
I believe a prime mover is th most plausible explanation for origin and will debate that vs whatever these viewed refuse to defend. Nothing is of course what they have. I am perfectly comfortable knowing they purposefully avoid the evidences of many disciplines of a prime mover. Of course nothing is evidence to these folks, but they bring their insanities and hate online for all to see. I enjoy exposing this farce.
Note to lurkers:
John is just flat out lying.
Many atheists have presented evidence and accountable positions.
I have.
But John refuses to debate.
He just copy/pastes the same few posts again and again.
John is a liar.

Why do we educated evolutionist have to prove our belief. But you religous FREAKS dont have one bit of proof and say you dont need to.....HOWS THAT WORK MORON???????
Omnipotence doesn't have to explain itself. Since science is your source of truth and science verifies all its claims with evidence, then you have to provide the evidence to back up your claims.

If You and science cannot answer these questions...then you cannot claim that religion's answers are invalid.
Of course I can! The buy-bull indicates the earth is flat! I don't need to know all the details of how the universe began to know the earth isn't flat. And since the earth isn't flat, I can dismiss the buy-bull as the inerrant word of god.

i give you evidence all the time, i answer your questions. i never voted for obama.

What i can honestly point out is that it seems to be the religious people on this site that lie time and time again. Openly. why is that?

If you are going to assert that "there is no reason to even entertain the idea" that God exists, then you must provide more than opinion to substantiate your position.
Not true. Unless there is evidence for god, there is no reason to believe he exists. Pretty simple, really.

Fundie, have you ever even wondered what it would be like to take a science class? There is evidence for the big bang. Evidence for evolution. There will always be questions science doesn't have the answer to. That's no reason to believe "Zap! God did it!". Especially when there is no evidence at all that god exists, and the myth fundies believe is clearly absurd.
Uh huh. But does that evidence explain what caused SOMETHING to expand into a universe? No. Does a universe without a cause explain how dead matter becomes living matter? No. If you can believe something without evidence, so can Christians. Logic dictates that there is more reason to believe God created the universe than NOTHING.

But there IS evidence of the big bang, and evidence that life began. Ever hear of the red shift? And life does exist, right?

Yeah, fundies can believe absolute nonsense.
The logic thing is beyond you.
Seriously, have you ever taken a basic science class?

Prove omnipotence doesn't exist, genius. Consult science, your source of truth, Somewhere in that preponderance of unverified inferences you should be able to find something you can use. Remember, I'm not talking about a mythical god, but a power that created the Universe. If you can't find something, then shut your prevaricating pie hole before you choke on the footlodged there.

The red shift supports the Big Bang theory, it doesn't establish a CAUSE. Yes. life exists, but how it got here is still a mystery to science.
