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 68,858 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!
Another copied and pasted block of text from John confirming he still has no proof of god and is angry at atheists at his own stupidity of following a failed fraudulent cult for most of his life.

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 68,860 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True

I have to admit... I was impressed. The topic was violence in the bible. I remember thinking "oh boy here we go". Assuming i would hear the same stuff I read on pages like this and YouTube and such... But no... He started by asking who thought the Quran was a violent book.... After the response he asked them if they have read their bibles because if it was not more violent it was just as violent of a holy book.... Wow... Then continued to read the most horrible bible verses.... And talked about how they make him feel sick knowing they are in the book.... He eventually said briefly that good was good and we had to trust him... But he was very very focused on how much they confuse and disappoint him... I was glad i went!

I'm sure you wondered where I went. My old email changed, so Topix no longer recognized me.....originally, I just made this account as a backup because I went somewhere else on vacation and set this one up....ironically, I found out that it would only let me log in under Kinu88 on....of all places, Internet Explorer.
So now, I'm stuck under this dull account, with no more 1,000 plus posts. TT I'm just trying to make it to 100 posts. What's with the points awarding system? It seems like things changed during the two or so years I was away.
Some of the threads (not Athiesm) have a point system--it's just for bragging rights as far as I can tell. I ignore it.

Obviously, your password on IE is cached-- if you wanted to, you could hack that password cache and recover it-- there are tools out there which do that. The encryption is not very strong, for IE.

yup, still the same. Still annoying trolls, still debaters. Why not just get along? I'll bet you anything those two people I knew are still arguing....they were arguing for two+ years over religion.....
Sounds a little silly to me.
I find it amusing to poke a virtual stick and the Copy-n-paste-King, ole stump-jonnie.

But he is completely, and totally incapable of rational replies.

I offered to debate him-- I posted a list of what I believe-- he ignored all of that.

He's just here to make people turn away from Genuine Christianity™ out of sheer disgust, that he represents it.

:D

I often wonder if the religi-trolls even have lives outside their basements. It does not keep me up at night, but it is a curious puzzle, no?
I suspect that they do not. The likely attend a "church" which consists of one (1) broken-down "pastor" who cannot find employment in the real world (apart from a part-time janitor position), and between 10 and 50 "parishioners", who are so hateful and bigoted, that they are not welcome in any of the nearby mainline (and larger) churches.

It's likely they meet in a school, or the public meeting room of a library, or even in their own garages in rotation.

I've seen this-- too often, I've seen this. It's pathetic.

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.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.%8

Dance for me nothing puppet. My accountable position is a prime mover. Yours?

No matter what these loons post or claim to have done you will never see any evidence in this arena that meets their own criteria.

Oh, I'll just take your word for it and disregard you brought the usual nothing. The same nothing since 2009. You loons make freethinkers cringe.

I contend the preponderance of evidence lies on the side of a prime mover vs any accountable position of belief in this arena. Claims, claims, everywhere. Evidence nowhere.

Sane, rational people would be embarrased to have a forum so exposed. You keep coming back though ok.
