Your entire forum is nothing loon. I notice you want no part of my challenge that the preponderance of evidence lies on the side of a prime mover vs ??????.

If I put a frog in a blender, cover, and wait a million years its still frog soup. Your magic science is anti-science.

So no evidence in this arena that meets the standards you hold others accountable to then? Dime a dozen bigots.

So no proof of god you're lying about. You want atheists to have morals but you demonstrate dishonesty every single day you refuse to provide proof of the god you claim to judge us by.

John, what kind of evidence do we need to consider? You often talk about our standard of evidence... How does "our" standard differ from yours?

Honest question.

I'm going to play devils advocate here for a second (haha.... Anyway..) and suggest that the atheists in here try to be as civil as they want the Christians to be. I honestly do like many of you and your responses.... And yes no matter how calm we are they will still say nasty things... Oh well...

Just notice how calm and collected Boooots is... He is still called a bigot and a racist... But notice what opinions you make of the people who can keep themselves under control and the ones who can't.

Probably a waste of time... But I enjoy more peaceful conversations...

I have no use for communism or evil dictatorships, so I don't know why you would mention that to me. Not believing in the God that you believe in makes me one of about 2/3 of the world's population. Not believing in any God makes me one of a bit fewer people in the world, and that number is growing. Yes some religions are growing too, but that growth is mainly due to the very large population growth over the past century, because the traditional religions have lost many of the people that formerly were religious.
However the numbers of believers has no bearing on whether or not a god exists, it just tells you what number of people believe that a god exists. None of these people know that a god exists, including you.
They are so desperate to make atheism look bad so they pretend that atheism and communism go hand and hand, as if Karl Marx was the atheist buybull. They do this to counter all the lists of genocide we have on them. But their statements clearly ignore the fact that atheism is not an ideology, it is just simply the lack of belief. No more than someone not liking pink clothes. Whereas the buybulll is a ideology or at least represents an ideology. The associations we make tying their religion to genocide is accurate because that book calls for murder and oppression against women, non monotheists, gays, etc.

It certainly is easy to separate the wheat from the chaff in this forum.

You can leave for days come back and see Identical items repeated ad infinitum.

Tireless Robo poster at work makes me laugh!

I know what you mean Vern. Lame BTW. I could take a year off and you would still have zero evidence in this arena you hold others accountable to. You would continue to duck any substantive debate and create strawmen to deal with the inferiority complex that comes with being an antitheist.

You've been exposed and this forum isn't about simple disbelief. What's the point of rewording nothing. Do you think it sounds better changing some words around LOL.

You're useful tools and comic relief to boot.

You have nothing new. Even the newbie questions have been covered years ago. All there is left for me to do is see how long you will post about simple disbelief. You could also meet my reasonable prerequisites. Where's the beef!? Yuck, Yuck.

This is your forum. You don't believe in God but even your forum needs him to make their nonpoint. Prove the claim about my claim LOL. What else did I claim. It's something new every day.

What institute has done more good? I didn't catch that but I was shaking my head at your collective ignorance.

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 68,140 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True
science that is repeatable and observable.

Atheists seem to run away from their past running Eastern European communist states.

Don't worry, I expect stupidity from your village. Keep doing what you do best, representing your village as the Village Idiot. I mean this literally, you are a racist due to your non-accomplished living.
Good night. I am sure that you will spend the rest of the night, whining about being exposed as a racist.
I'm not racist-- but you clearly and self-evidently are.

You are also a bigot with regards to equality.

Which is... ironic as hell.

That is correct-- he never mastered the "art" of quoting either.

I suppose original content and posting links is beyond his simple programming.

John is the Ginsu knife salesman of this thread!
Ten to one says he's Republican retard, Bitter over resounding defeat - the worst in history for the Grand obstructionist party!
I just don't have your stamina to work up enough energy to reply to anything by John.
What surprises me is he is obviously spanning this thread.
one would assume topics administrators would put a stop to that.
Oh, he is a republican-- in one of his rare moments of off-topic, he praised the "virtues" of George Bushy.

It was kinda sad to witness, though-- his praise had no facts, just an appeal to emotional shyt.

Sad, really.

GOP=Global Oligarchy ParlimentParty

Rule by the few, often seen as having self-serving ends. Aristotle used the term pejoratively for unjust rule by bad men, contrasting oligarchy with rule by an aristocracy. Most classic oligarchies have resulted when governing elites were recruited exclusively from a ruling class, which tends to exercise power in its own interest.

Obama is not as robust as I hoped but still is better than entrenched power. Bush left behind a daunting task for ANY politician. It will take much longer than 8 years to undo the Bush legacy of dishonor and shame. Mission accomplished Dubya!

Fathom the Hypocrisy of a Government
that requires every citizen to prove

Bush will be remembered as the worst president in recent US history.

I do not vote. There is NO point. The country is already 'owned'.

And... don't give me that old lame excuse "If you don't vote you cannot complain"

WRONG!- It is the voters that elect these mammals, not me. I'm willing to except whomever they put in office and work around them.

IF... you want change - all incumbants should be immediately voted out of office regardless of party or record.

This, of course, will never occur.

@john - Sides with Clint Eastwood a man who after a lifetime of stunning achievements in Hollywood, reduced himself to a senile buffoon, Talking to an empty chair at the Republican convention. What a shame

Are you going to pull those pistols or whistle Dixie?
Brilliant!

How do you know you aren't gay Bob? Perhaps social mores and upbringing has clouded your judgment. Are you anti-science as well? An orgasm releases chemicals that create a feeling of pleasure. You claim no moral qualms with homosexual sex and have described it as natural and normal. You hate gays and are intolerant. Increase your odds, unless you are a bigot.
