You make the presupposition that there is no evidence without admitting you do not have the scientifically measurable evidence to support your position of nothing. You have placed limits on what may be limitless. You have placed limits where they need not be. Thus far I have seen no evidence provided by an atheist that would support what is disingenuously called natural mechanisms only. If you think there isn't evidence of design you would be wrong. Admittedly, this can not be proven using your constricting criteria, but nothing in this arena has been proven using this standard. You know this by now. That is why it is so frustrating to the forum when it's pointed out. Judging by the ever-growing anecdotal evidence of this forum overwhelmingly congregated by atheists, atheism is something else entirely. There is a large contingent of antitheists, a portion devoted to secular humanism, and some interplay with other assorted isms. The common denominator is that every single one of these positions is lacking in evidence. The notion that man is the be all end all is flawed in my opinion. Of course you wish to shirk any burden of proof. That's transparent and shows a weak position. Atheism has been co-opted by the new atheist. Much more vocal and commited to breaking down the populace writ large that actually do have a position. I've given more than enough opportunity for atheists to engage in debate that is not circular. The brilliance and weakness of atheism is no accountability. That's why it's not challenging to debate this topic with you loons. Apologies to the few that aren't driven by more than uncertainty. When Reagan debated Gorbachev on our nuclear arsenals each man had a position. If there was a political debate the political atheist would attack the other position and not have to be responsible for one himself. If one football team was atheist and the other was not they would have the ball on offense the whole game. Fumble, and the ball would be returned. This is what you ask for here, but is unacceptable in every other topic. I'm conservative btw. A rational freethinker. I'm sure you are a centrist LOL. What's the mushy middle ithought on government size, abortion, tax rates?
If there isn't a position don't bother responding. How is the fence Bob, Septic, Tinkling,,,,? You got the post wedged good and deep yet? Stump an antitheist! Ask it what it believes. Still going strong 68,870 posts in.
Still nothing about atheism in the atheist forum. No position, no post #. Lies, spin, ad hominem, and boredom.
Waiting for an example of what passes the cut for evidence from atheists. Cowards!

But Stump-John's hamster wheel keeps squeaking out the exact same lies as day 1.

Same empty lies-- same grammatical errors--- same moronic and meaningless content.

Round and round goes Stump-John's hamster wheel.

His hamster has died-- but he is too dim to have noticed the pathetic little dessicated corpse going Round and Round and Round...

Are my oracles fantastic or what? ;)

See the sheep dance, right on cue

Chop chop - Idle fingers are the devil's workshop

Copy paste copy paste
Quickly now don't disappoint the forum
Your meth just kicked in

Imhotep's oracles also predict they can tell you what the content of each post will be!

I'm so sorry for your loss.

You must be SO jealous of me, too.

Nothing I can do about that, though--if you were to start using your brain?

No? Too much for you?

So sorry...

Here's a question for YOU:

The number of different brands of "christian" is around 41,000.

And it's showing an increase over time, too.

Now, here's the question: Why isn't your god at work, here?

I mean--if there WAS a god behind even ONE brand of "christian"?

It would naturally have ... Divine Guidance.

And would soon overtake, and engulf the non-divine versions. In short order, we would see a rapid joining of the non-divine brands, being overwhelmed by the Awesome Power Of Divine Guidance.

What mere human agency could possibly compete with THAT?

Which god are your talking about when you say "your god"? I did not mention any god at all in my post. However, your reply to me proves my point. It was an attack based on what you "know" about me when in fact you know nothing.

Atheists don't answer questions. Atheists don't "do" evidence. Atheism is a militant cult of nothing.

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 68,898 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True

“Ya doggone idgit galoot …“Oooo … get me a a mouth piece … I wanna a hapus corpeas!”

Don't keep my oracles waiting now get busy with them fingers - you have lots of copy pasting to do and you're falling way behind that's why Jesus hates you

No they are fighting/lashing out at God. Most of them. This forum has gone on for years and it happens with or without me. You think simple disbelief has carried the forum in all its venom this long? The evidence speaks otherwise. Speaking of evidence. Do you have any in this arena you hold others accountable to?
I've already exposed your standard of evidence yet you want ME to provide YOU evidence in your forum. Let me guess you'll be the arbiter. Your forum insists on fighting God, you can't stay away from him. I've made it clear, apparently you don't read my posts that I don't debate nothing. God is merely an axe and diversion created by loons to mask their nothing agenda.
You've made the claim there is no God so prove it. That's your deal and problem whether its impossible or not. I've offered to debate the evidences/reasons I believe in a prime mover vs any accountable position of belief you want to make a case for. You have failed miserably. Not my problem.
Regurgitating tired nonpoints despite four years of me being clear makes it obvious you have no intention of doing anything other than projecting. Nothing certainly is not the answer.

The evidence contradicts that. You loons have spent four years on something you don't believe in. I want to see how commited to the nothing you are. Dig in and keep these substantive posts coming.

It doesn't matter WHICH god-- I mean YOUR god, here-- the god that YOU, PERSONALLY worship.

Let me repeat, since you IGNORED the basic question.

Here's a question for YOU:

The number of different brands of "christian" is around 41,000.

And it's showing an increase over time, too.

Now, here's the question: Why isn't your god at work, here?

I mean--if there WAS a god behind even ONE brand of "christian"?

It would naturally have ... Divine Guidance.

And would soon overtake, and engulf the non-divine versions. In short order, we would see a rapid joining of the non-divine brands, being overwhelmed by the Awesome Power Of Divine Guidance.

I'll put the question to YOU, since you claim to be some sort of ... expert.

Here it is:

REPUBLICANS: OBAMA MUST TAKE ACTION IN SYRIA SO WE CAN CRITICIZE ACTION HE TOOK IN SYRIA

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—A growing chorus of Republican lawmakers are demanding that President Obama take some action in Syria so that they can attack whatever action he took in Syria.

Appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) laid out the situation in stark terms:“The time for President Obama to do something in Syria that we can eviscerate him for is long overdue.”

Arguing that there are a variety of options available to Mr. Obama for dealing with Syria, Sen. Graham said,“The President needs to choose one of those options so that we can immediately identify it as a catastrophic choice and demand that he be impeached.”

Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) used an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” to express impatience with Mr. Obama’s “steadfast refusal to give us something new to rake him over the coals for.”

“The American people have grown weary of my nonstop criticism of the President’s handling of Libya,” he said.“They are ready to hear me incessantly berate him for his handling of a different country.”

At the end of his television appearance, Sen. McCain seemed to draw a line in the sand, making a direct challenge to Mr. Obama:“Mr. President, we are sick and tired of attacking you for your inaction. The time has come for us to attack you for your action.”
