Your forum Bob. Your nonclaim. I simply asked questions that exposed you.
What I believe shouldn't come into play with a nonclaim. Ah, you have an agenda though. Ok. Let's debate the evidences and reasons to believe in ???? vs my belief in a prime mover. Still thinking? I'll wait lmao.
Nothing to see here folks but bigots on parade.

<quoted text>you gave no questions. should I pull up the post where you said you'd debate me when i gave my position
i did, now debate.
as to your question, what do i believe about what? i believe the Twins will suck again next year. i believe most people care about their kids... give me some parameters of this belief question...
BS, and you know it. Lying for nothing tsk, tsk. I asked a question in 2009 on page one that hasn't been answered in a relevant way. Just put up this so called answer.

I've asked if you have any evidence in this arena that meets your own criteria? Ignored.

I've asked how you would decide what is most or least likely of the following: always was, prime mover, something from nothing, or any other option. Show your work. Ignored.

Those have been asked dozens of times in the last few weeks alone.

Your accountable position of belief is? Yeah, you forgot it again.

Feign ignorance if you want as to the arena of discussion. I do need to reiterate what you have nonengaged in for years with every post.

Yeah, put up the post. I have been clear I don't debate nothing and expect an accountable position of belief.

Your turn for an evidence free retort.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

i;m sure we'll find your faith suddeenly lacking....again...
Who the heck are you to decide what is and isn't reasonable? Make up a reasonable origin without skipping steps. Is your illogical nothing reliant on something to have a voice? You don't believe in God.

However, I do enjoy exposing you so once again I will gladly debate the evidences and reasons I believe in a prime mover vs any other accountable position of belief.
Do you have one? Plenty of the smartest men of multiple disciplines have reasons/evidences they, as I believe in a prime mover. I'll wait for your forum to man up. It is your forum. One lone theist scares you to death LOL.

Fight hard for your nothing loons!

@woodtick- you must enjoy getting knocked around. You failed miserably. You also skipped the questions by the way. All atheists aren't liars, but this forum is close.

Take care stumpee!

No really anyone's Jesus ...you seem possessive?

At one point, though, Dawkins did retreat from one of his previous comments. At Reason Rally 2012 — a national atheist event — he had encouraged atheists to “ridicule” Catholics. In hindsight, he confessed,“I think I did go too far,” though he claimed that he had not intended for ridicule to mean "name-calling"......

Flatbush Zombies and the Underachievers are two New York rap duos who make wiggy, expressive versions of the grimy ’90s rap they grew up on, and both of them have earned our Mixtape Of The Week designation in the past year — Flatbush Zombies for D.R.U.G.S. and, more recently, the Underachievers for Indigoism.

And today, both groups team up for a guttural banger called “No Religion.

Atheist Rap...... is this their own Vatican Conclave ?

<quoted text>Let's tell the WHOLE story, shall we?

The CONTEXT is EVERYTHING: evil dickheads like you, had FORCED prisoners to comply with your evil religious practice, by giving special meeting-priveledges to True Believers™ only.

An atheist sued the prison officials for equal treatment-- and won.

So the court considers a nice tidy LEGAL FICTION, that atheism was "religion" in order to treat prisoners who were NOT True Believers™ with equality as required by the law.

You DO know what a LEGAL FICTION is don't you?

Here's another one: corporations.

The LEGAL FICTION is that these are a person, granted certain rights under the law.

Of course, everyone knows corporations are NOT a person, but are a business comprised of buildings, property, assets, etc-- but not REALLY a person. That is a convenient LEGAL FICTION.

Just as calling "atheism" a "religion" is.

Are you REALLY this stupid, or did you need special stupid lessons?

<quoted text>It isn't.

Atheism simply happens to correspond with...

.... reality.

Public schools are required to teach reality.

Coincidence?

Nope-- rationalism and atheism go hand-in-glove.

In direct contrast to religion-- which is just stupid.

As are you....

... coincidence?

Nope-- stupid and religion also go hand-in-glove.

Proof? Your Calvert idiot comes immediately to mind...

Wrong. The Circuit Court held that atheism is afforded equal protect to religions as in the establishment claus of the first amendment.

That said, a public school classroom is not the place to promote atheism. It *is* a place to promote science, history, and other areas of knowledge. If the sceince bothers some religion, that is irrelevant to the ability of science to be taught in a classroom. Now, the vast majority of scientists understand that species evolve and that the universe is expanding. It is a scientific consensus. So that consensus should be taught in schools.
