Hey look a group of nonclaimers with an exposed evidentiary standard want to decide the evidence of others beliefs in their own forum. Bizarre.

This always gets them though. I contend the preponderance of evidence is decidely on the side of a prime mover vs any other accountable position. Now comes the part where they hoot and howl about their so-called nonclaim.

Nothing to see here but bigots lurkers.

Another winning day for the undefeated prime mover!

Hey Bob just wanted to remind you how much I enjoyed exposing you as a liar. Multiple times at that. I don't know how you could have an ego, but I hurt it nonetheless.

Tell me more about your nothing or Obamas 11 million jobs Bwahahaha.

Yes-- you keep saying this.

But you NEVER-EVER show this... "evidence".

You don't even show ... an ARGUMENT.

You have the same thing that atheists have = absolutely no proof of god whatsoever.
This scares you.
I think I decided several days ago to not respond to John any more, because there seems no point responded to someone who doesn't seem to be able to think.

Why is it so difficult to understand that not believing in a god does not imply that you have some sort of an agenda?

Only in your delusional dreams, azzhole.

Only in your delusional dreams---- what you call "evidence", everyone else in the universe calls "lies".

But that's how you roll: you lie.

Pretty much 100% of the time, too.

Did you like my history lesson? Proving you to be the little liar everyone knows?

Thanks for linking your irrelevant answers Bob. That's quite the noncase you have. It actually confirms my contentions but your not sharp enough to realize that. Your not sharp enough not to get caught in lies either.

Atheism is simply disbelief. Nothing more. How many years will it take for me to realize your totally benign nothing?

Consider the much used Ad Infinitum Atheist Quote

"I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours."
Anon

Peace on earth?
Not as long as any religion exists!

Atheists do not care which deity you choose to worship. We DO NOT believe in deities or any religions that support these imaginary deities.
Science is expanding, and with it our vision of the universe. Although this new and constantly changing view may not always give us comfort, it does have the virtue of truth according to our most effective resources for acquiring knowledge.

Seek another venue that supports your beliefs.
You will CONVERT no atheists.

If it is converts to your faith you seek… the Muslim world awaits with open Qurans and Sharia law.

They desperately need your guidance! Prevent another 9/11!

Be the one infidel that rescues the Muslim world!

Saudi Arabia would be a good place to take your Bible and do a little preaching Jesus would love you for it

But but but you have been baptized what's holding you back?

Cowardice - fear that Jesus will not protect you?

Fear that some Muslim imam might think your head belonged better on the ground than on your shoulders?

Irony

Jews created the religion Christians and Muslims adopted and modified and now follow but each Share a rather robust hatred of Jews.
