Well thanks for sharing your nothing boys. Thanks for skipping the questions. Thanks for running from my challenge. Thanks for your presuppositions rather than accountable positions.

Fight that God, march, march,.march

Nope. The above is still more of your lies-- not an argument, not any facts in support of your "prime mover".
Of course, you don't have any facts-- or even a single argument.
All you have are lies; lies which you think repeating makes them less of a lie-- it doesn't.
You're still a coward, though.
And yes-- science is repeatable and observable. Which is why evolution is science, and your "prime mover" isn't.

Probably all of it.

It is impossible to disprove there isn't some race somewhere that has mapped the lot.

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost four years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Four 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 66,800 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True
science that is repeatable and observable.

Beautiful day for a loon parade. Society marginalizes your kind with good reason.

I will say that there are many possibilities and all of us (theists and atheists) could be wrong... This may all be an illusion and nothing outside of the mind of the person reading this exists. Maybe everything WAS created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. Some answers are more reasonable than others. That doesn't make them correct... But it does make it more likely. Faith is a virus of reason.

After years of advancements in technology I find it more reasonable to believe the parts that make up my cell phone are what makes it work. It could be magic that is only granted to each device by a cell phone fairy...but I find it highly unlikely to the point where I dismiss it and I don't find it to be dishonest to do so unless evidence is provided to change my mind. If someone does believe in the cell phone fairy but only because of faith and they turn out to be correct... It wouldn't have meant anyone should have believed them for any reason unless of course they did have evidence in which case faith is irrelevant.

Science has nothing to say on the existence of God.

It is a philosophical question.

that;s because there is not one shred of evidence of any god, gods or goddesses ever existing.

the existence of the Easter bunny is also a philosophical question.

Science doesn't attempt to discuss god as there is not one shred of evidence that any god, gods or goddesses ever existed. when that first shred of evidence is found, it could be looked at in a scientific, ogical way.

You loons have absolutely zero evidence in this arena you hold others accountable to. Since you are so mentally disturbed you need a forum for something you don't believe in support your claims. Of course you can't and your agenda is horrific for the scientific process.

You skipped my questions again by the way.

Still no evidence or accountable position in the atheism forum.

Great stab at it empAtheist. Instead of a holographic universe maybe its alien seeding.

How do bigots decide what is more or least likely: always was, prime mover, something from nothing? I'll decide if your process is reasonable and logical. Show your work.

Absolutely. Right back at ya. Originally I simply asked the forum what they believed and noted that antitheism is in my experience all too often the default. Being a believer is/was irrelevant. I was accurate and antitheists showed their true colors, lashing out against a God they don't believe in and a God I was not attempting to shove down their throats.
Ruling out possibilities is not freethinking. We don't know what we don't know. Attacking/marginalizing belief isn't intellectually honest when nothing meets the repeatable and observable standard. Four years of no evidence in the atheism forum is enough for me to conclude this. I've asked the question hundreds of times and many claim to have provided it, but that's a lie. No sugarcoating it.
The conversation devolved quickly as (the way I see it) their was a group attack effort to bring this God they seem to hate into the equation. This did not dissuade me as I chose to stay on point. I was clear my intentions were not to make any claims, I was an am.simply pointing out intellectual dishonesty.
I continued trying to get the "rules" for evidence after all attempts to get answers to legitiamate questions failed. I sought these rules in response to the neverending attacks to further expose the forum. I offered to debate the evidences/reasons I believe in a prime mover vs any accountable position of belief that meets the criteria I was given. This challenge was not accepted. There will be claims otherwise but I guarrantee you won't find what I've asked. Now imagine doing this dance for four years simply because I refuse to debate nothing. I didn't set out to mock simple disbelief, that fine but this isn't that and I think you know it.
Name a subject I get to ask all the questions on and your job is to defend it, over and over and over and over again. How about science? Get my point? It's even more ridiculous considering I've exposed the standard. Remember my question regarding evidence quantification? Never answered relevantly.
Nonbelievers like yourself leave pretty quickly and they should. You may find it glib but what is the point of a forum about nothing? This is an agenda that stifles true freethought.
A simple I don't know...end forum would have sufficed. Now its a game to me to see how many years this forum will be intellectualy dishonest in their fight for nothing.
I appreciate your consideration but I've done this multiple times with decent folk like yourself. I won't debate in front of the kids without the reasonable prerequisites I've asked for. A simple no to my question should have been the response years ago LOL. Back to cut and paste.
