Dolt!
Yet?

You cannot prove your monster-god isn't a myth...

Part 2
"Just right laws of physics
The laws of physics must have values very close to those observed or the universe does not work "well enough" to support life. What happens when we vary the constants? The strong nuclear force (which holds atoms together) has a value such that when the two hydrogen atoms fuse, 0.7% of the mass is converted into energy. If the value were 0.6% then a proton could not bond to a neutron, and the universe would consist only of hydrogen. If the value were 0.8%, then fusion would happen so readily that no hydrogen would have survived from the Big Bang. Other constants must be fine-tuned to an even more stringent degree. The cosmic microwave background varies by one part in 100,000. If this factor were slightly smaller, the universe would exist only as a collection of diffuse gas, since no stars or galaxies could ever form. If this factor were slightly larger, the universe would consist solely of large black holes. Likewise, the ratio of electrons to protons cannot vary by more than 1 part in 10^37 or else electromagnetic interactions would prevent chemical reactions. In addition, if the ratio of the electromagnetic force constant to the gravitational constant were greater by more than 1 part in 10^40, then electromagnetism would dominate gravity, preventing the formation of stars and galaxies. If the expansion rate of universe were 1 part in 10^55 less than what it is, then the universe would have already collapsed. The most recently discovered physical law, the cosmological constant or dark energy, is the closest to zero of all the physical constants. In fact, a change of only 1 part in 10^120 would completely negate the effect.
Universal probability bounds
"Unlikely things happen all the time." This is the mantra of the anti-design movement. However, there is an absolute physical limit for improbable events to happen in our universe. The universe contains only 10^80 baryons and has only been around for 13.7 billion years (10^18 sec). Since the smallest unit of time is Planck time (10^-45 sec),5 the lowest probability event that can ever happen in the history of the universe is:
1/1080 x 1/1018 x 1/1045 =1/10143"
LOL.

Both Bob and Rose skipped the questions. Each is a bigoted coward unwilling to debate. Why has your forum skipped my questions about evidence? Why is your forum ill equipped to support their nothing?

Note to lurkers: John refuses to debate. We've gone back an forth many times, so, I said I would not reply to him until he presented some evidence of god's existence.

You've even stolen my note to lurkers LOL. You have never answered my questions because you can't. You are a bigot, nothing more. I have exposed your rules for evidence and therefore challenged you in your own forum for an accountable position. You failed.

Believe, don't believe but if you seek to marginalize I have called your bluff. Let's just provide our reason and evidence for what we believe. I believe in a prime mover and have multiple disciplines as sources. You haven't posted what you believe and its your forum LOL.

Most of histories brightest minds have weighed the evidences and believe in a designer. Rose and Bob votes Obama. You do the math.

Atheism exposed 101

reminds me of atheist religious doctrine 101:... atheist religious doctrine 101 = We have convinced ourselves that God does not exist .. therefore .. man is the highest authority and the center of the universe .. in other words: each atheist is like a little god unto himself .. determining for himself the definitions of right and wrong ... totally subjective

question 08 ... How did sex originate?.. Asexual reproduction gives up to twice as much reproductive success (‘fitness’) for the same resources as sexual reproduction ...
so how could the latter ever gain enough advantage to be selected?.. And how could mere physics and chemistry invent the complementary apparatuses needed at the same time (non-intelligent processes cannot plan for future coordination of male and female organs)

<quoted text>That's my point...
The Genesis myth has night and day before there is a sun.
It's not obvious that night and day are created by a place on the earth moving towards and away from the sun as the earth revolves. But we now know that's the case. So how can you believe night and day existed before the sun did!?
Because God created light before he created the sun. Easy for God to do.

atheist religious doctrine 102 =
Because we believe there is no God ..
Human life is therefore not sacred and can be exterminated given the proper circumstance / rationalization and will .. 40+ years of legalized abortion ??.. and some might wonder why we have a generation of youth that would take what you have and kill you without a second thought .. we are now experiencing the societal consequence

"Because God created light before he created the sun. Easy for God to do"

and we will return to a place and time where the only light we experience will be God himself .. biblical

question 09 ... Why are the (expected) countless millions of transitional fossils missing?... Darwin noted the problem and it still remains ..
The evolutionary family trees in textbooks are based on imagination .. not fossil evidence .... Famous Harvard paleontologist (and evolutionist).. Stephen Jay Gould .. wrote ..
“The extreme rarity of transitional forms in the fossil record persists as the trade secret of paleontology”... Other evolutionist fossil experts also acknowledge the problem

001 ... How did life originate?.. Evolutionist Professor Paul Davies admitted ...“Nobody knows how a mixture of lifeless chemicals spontaneously organized themselves into the first living cell ... Andrew Knoll .. professor of biology .. Harvard .. said ..“we don’t really know how life originated on this planet”... A minimal cell needs several hundred proteins .. Even if every atom in the universe were an experiment with all the correct amino acids present for every possible molecular vibration in the supposed evolutionary age of the universe .. not even one average-sized functional protein would form ... So how did life with hundreds of proteins originate just by chemistry without intelligent design?... See:
15 loopholes in the evolutionary THEORY of the origin of life (Summary).. http://creation.com/loopholes .. Video on Question 1 of 15 .. http://creation.com/genesis-unleashed...
One, evolution and the origin of life are not connected nor are they dependent on each other.

Two, you think saying "I don't know yet" is a bad thing, that is why you have to buy a made up non-answer like "god dun it," you fear not knowing. You can't admit you don't know. You are a weak person.

let's recap the record ..

ATHEISM = The belief that there was nothing ..
and nothing happened to nothing ..
and then nothing "magically" exploded for no reason "creating" everything .. and then everything "magically" rearranged itself for no reason what-so-ever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs

.......... WOW !!!!
