I've exposed the forum as easily today as the hundreds before. However, a special coward award goes to Sicko. Typical of the atheist he threatened me bodily harm because I find his nothing absurd. Typical of the atheist he could not back it up. Boo, hiss, have you no shame!? LOL.

Nothing Bless

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 66,190 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!

what is the scientifically measurable evidence you speak of?

that actually makes no sense...

what we have is a total lack of evidence of any gods, any magic, anything supernatural. nada zip. no gods, nothing magical. just he laws of hte universe.

why can't you accept that?

More nothing trying to be relevant. Nothing to see here folks, certainly no evidence or accountable position.

Lots of talk about a book and a God they don't believe in. Numerous other irrrelevancea as well. Not anyone willing to put their nothing up vs my something.

Dive on in kids or do you realize the dozens of arguments from many disciplines for a prime mover would further embarassed you. Stick with your neverending noncase, the forum has your name on it LOL.

What do you believe?

Simple chemical reactions between carbon and other elements.
All of those elements came from nuclear reactions in the cores of stars.

.....and you ducked the question. Not surprising. You loons can engage in semantics as long as you want. The bottom line is you have absolutely zero evidence that meets your criteria and expect to be the arbiters of evidence. I don't debate nothing. You have a forum about nothing. My job is easy. Make things a little more interesting and present an accountable position of belief like I have done.

Still no admission of hypocrisy from the bigot forum.

Because I don't need to. You have a forum about nothing I have exposed. I don't need to convert or convince you. Agenda driven bigots start a forum and dare others with beliefs to present their evidence isn't a game I need to play. I think you are nuts basically.

If you have a hard on for believers I have a treasure trove of evidence/reasons at my disposal to believe in a prime mover. You mock most of histories greatest thinkers when you infer that position has no merit when in fact you fear it...thus your ridiculous nothing.

Fight hard for your nothing whackadoodle.

Antitheists don't do questions. People who simply don't believe do not frequent this forum. Grind your axes cowards. I am your puppetmaster.

You like to make a lot of crap up. To expose something you must first address it, you ignore all challenges to do so, ergo, you have done nothing but make wild assertions. Back up your assertions lest you forever be known as a liar.

The day is winding down with the cowardly atheist (that's redundant) Sicko getting punked after threatening me physically. The other loons were typically nothing based. Average day. At 100,000 postal of nothing I'm call Guiness. Your forum has worked hard for it.

Only the most gullible entertain the nothing/Obama. Congratulations on being snookered into both Rose LOL. Free health care, yippeeee!!!

Oh bobby, you going to hurt my feeling.
I doubt it-- unfeeling selfish True Believers™ such as yourself, care only about one thing: yourself.

With an ego as great as yours? You fell nothing but your own narcissism.

What else?

Only an extreme narcissist (such as you) would believe that the Ultimate Creator has a personal relationship with you.

Wow.

The bible's authors (and there are 1000's, if you include all the edits) are all human.

Thus, the bible is 100% fabrication-- fiction in other words.

It's not proof of anything.

But you?

You WORSHIP the bible as if it was a god.

That's pretty sad.

Seriously.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. This water and organic chemicals always were, came from nothing, what!? You repeat crap that avoids the crux of the matter. No wonder you won't provide an accountable position as I have done.

Nothing in the above post is an argument.

Neither is anything in it evidence of a ... ahem... "prime mover".

Nor is the above persuasive in any way (apart from proving the poster is an ass, of course...)

So John the coward refuses to debate...

... again.
