When South Florida atheists held their first meeting, they were just five friends, having a beer at a bar.

The doctor concurs with your assessment of this troll!
He asked me if I knew what time it was. I said, "Yes, but not right now."
John went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, "where's the self-help section?" She said if she told him, it would defeat the purpose.
Sidebar another conversation
Benefits of cannabis Sativa or cannabis Indica are;
Increased appetite and food Tastes 100% better
Mellow relaxing feel takes to strain off of the day
The effects wear off in less than an hour
Music sounds much better every sense is a
wee bit more robust.
You drive much slower and take your time
Fighting? NO WAY!
Violence no way either
And now at considerable risk I offer this axiom
"God made marijuana man-made alcohol who you trust?

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 68,768 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True
science that is repeatable and observable.

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 68,770 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!

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. Yawn.
Reading comprehension is not your strong suit.

John is pure comedy gold.
You in particular assail him at every turn, His anxiety is palpable, Why he even mentioned you by name!

Even foghorn leghorn commented!

“Nice boy but he’s got more nerve than a bum tooth”
“I say, boy, pay attention when I’m talkin’ to ya, boy”
“Pay attention, boy, I’m cuttin’ but you ain’t bleedin’!”
“Smart boy, got a mind like a steel trap – full of mice”
“He’s so dumb he thinks a Mexican border pays rent”

For some odd reason I feel a bit jaunty this evening. Sarcasm seems to be my forte today.

Sometimes I have questions...

Should crematoriums give discounts for burn victims?

If a mute swears, does his mother wash his hands with soap?

If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

Is there another word for synonym?

Isn't it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice?"

I have a map of the United States... Actual size. It says, "Scale: 1 mile = 1 mile." I spent last summer folding it. I also have a full-size map of the world. I hardly ever unroll it. People ask me where I live, and I say, "E6".

It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to have to paint it.

Classic humor.

(and yes-- the man would still be wrong--

-- as Lazarus Long advised? If you ever, in your entire life, win an argument with a woman?

Apologize at once! Your very sanity may depend on it.)

I like to say blind faith, because faith can be reasonable. I can say I trust my mother with my private information because she has helped me out, that would be faith. But for me to just give out private information to anyone in the street and to have enough trust in them to assume that they would not use it to their benefit is blind faith

Oh, without a doubt language is far more subtle than your average godbot can comprehend.

And in English, especially-- where words can have contextual meaning that is literally 180 degrees from a more formal setting. Or even off on a tangent....

... as in the word "cool", for example.:)

And I well understand how faith is a very useful mental shortcut: imagine an existence where there was no such helpful thing.

Having to test a chair or chair-like object every time you wanted to sit down? Will it hold you up? Test it and see.... but faith in the meme of "chairs" allows you to just sit down without a second thought.

But you point out and even more useful feature of faith: it permits humans to act cooperatively in large groups.

Faith in each other, is an essential ability in a social species such as ours.

Sadly, religion has exploited this mental short-cut to it's own nefarious ends.

Not unlike a parasitic worm, come to think of it.

Exactly. Religion has corrupted the meaning and value of faith. True faith is belief based on logic, reason, observation, and pattern.We believe our family loves us because we have seen seen their love manifested over and over again. We believe that winter will be colder then summer because what we have seen and felt. We may believe that one boxer may prevail over the other based on their previous fight records. Religion has encouraged it slaves to blind themselves and put their trust in their delusion. It appeals to the sentimental and irrational part of the human mind. The side that ma chooses comfort over reason and reality.
