Thanks for nothing Richard. You should be embarrased at how easily exposed your nonsense is. Let's compare the evidence of a prime mover vs ????. Be proud of your ???

Still no evidence or accountable position in the atheism.forum.

That's the assumption anyway, but it doesn't explain what "caused" the big bang.
<quoted text>
So the story goes, but science cannot explain where this really small SOMETHING came from, or why it suddenly expanded to form the universe.
<quoted text>
Science does not acknowledge a "something else" leaving one to assume that NOTHING caused this very small SOMETHING to expand. To say everything came from the Big Bang is like saying babies come from maternity wards, the theory doesn't go back far enough.
<quoted text>
Like the big bang theory, there is an hypothesis: "I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness. Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve." - Max Planck
<quoted text>
Enter God, a primary nonphysical gestalt of consciousness, which was, is and will always be. And which exists within and behind all systems and universes. What it boils down to then, is whose THEORY is more believable and makes more sense. Primary consciousness is more believable and makes more sense than NOTHING.

So BBretard's argument is... If we don't have all the answers say god must have done it!

Hey maybe he used this in school!
Test question: who built the pyramids!
BB: god.
Who invented the automobile?
BB: god.
What is 9 x 9=
BB: god.
Who was the first Caesar?
BB: god.
Why does the weather grow colder in the winter?
BB: god.

No wonder he never made it our of the 5th grade!

Is not the phrase "religious liar" redundant?

Are not, by definition, all religious types also liars?

In that they all claim to have "faith"?

And we see that the "faith" they have, is basically... a lie?

A lie they have been told so many times, they forgot it was a lie?

... meh.

But you are correct: he has offered no proof or even a single argument even, for his god.

Sad.

that would be like Einstein throwing in his cosmological constant to explain what he couldn't figure out; his greatest mistake...
If atheists can believe NOTHING caused the SOMETHING to form the universe without scientific evidence, the religious can also believe God created the universe without scientific evidence.

For those who believe, or who sense a greater reality, the way to God is by way of the heart, not the intellect. Often the heart already knows what the intellect must rationalize. You cannot objectify that which is not physical (primary consciousness), you can only experience it.

You have proved that atheists are as fervent in their disbelief in God as the religious are in their belief in God.

Your nothing is illogical. A forum that repeats nothing is irrational.

You don't have a single example of evidence in this arena that meets the criteria you hold others to.

You don't have any clue how to quantify possibility. For instance, what is most or least likely: prime mover, something from nothing, always was. Show your freethinking.

Now, let us compare your nothing to my something. You loons throw out words like evidence, logical, natural. Pfft, you can't even make up a beginning that is ahem natural.

Simple bigots exposed day after day. Thanks for the help.

Thats some Existentialism Bullshit that neither religion or science can explain. Really doesn't have much to do with science since we can't prove fiction and fantasy. Neither can religion either.

Shit, I believe more in the eastern religions than I do christianity. At least the eastern religions such a buddhism, taoism and hinduism is promoted to be a guide, which is far more useful in life than a god that everyone disputes.

The bigots skipped my questions again. They also failed to bring any evidence or accountable position in their own forum. Nothing gets nothing. That applies in science and this forum.

March, march, hate the something, march, march, all for nothing.

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 65,650 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True
science that is repeatable and observable.

True-- but the two are hardly equal.

The >>scientific<< approach is evidence-based >>only<<.

As soon as there is evidence? A scientific viewpoint will fit said evidence into the worldview.

In direct contrast to you god-robots: you REJECT any and all evidence that proves your GOD is MYTH.

So.

Who is lying here?

Yes-- that would be YOU.

Your "heart" is just a blood-pump, made of meat.

It cannot "sense" anything.

And since you admit you REJECT rationality?(the intellect)

You admit you are ...

... lying here.

You can also "experience" insane hallucinations about little green leprechauns.

That does not mean green leprechauns are real.

No more real than your monster-terrorist (god) is.
