So then, where is the evidence that your god exists?
Go look in a mirror-and ask yourself that same old repetitive, non-productive question, because I'm not the one requesting any-YOU are.

it's rational to fail to read half the book that details the fabric of your religion, then complain when someone points out the nastiness of the parts you missed?
heh - there's lots of words for that - "rational" is certainly not one of them.
I personally found the post to show some concerted effort in at least having the decency of respecting others---rather than viciously attacking them --for what ever anyone might (or might not) beleive.

That in and of itself--- equates out to some actual Rationality and decency, rather than just projecting hate and spew upon others.

If you have your face stuck THAT close-I think you need something that offers a little more uh..actual progressiveness, that requires some actual thought, to focus on.

YOu really do not want to be sent shopping for prune juice, do you?

Yes, yes you are. I notice ALL the nothings skipped the questions. In fact, I'll leave if you can produce one shred of evidence in this arena that meets the standards you hood others accountable to.
poor jonny..
Jonny - take your time. slow down, sound out the big words.
you are making a claim - you are required to provide evidence.
Now, jonny, you know what evidence is. We have told you. We have used small words, and typed slowly for you. Your inability to understand the very, very basic requirements, usually met by anyone else trying who thinks they're making an intelligent claim is that you produce something falsifiable.
This is not hard jonny. not in the slightest.
I've been telling christians this since about 1990, and still - nothing. not a single one of you has anything other than wounded petulant words - typically you fall back on "duur, its jus' faif" or some other articulate permutation.
I've exposed your evidentiary standard and you (the nothing) want to be the arbiter of evidence. Sure.
Yeah, imagine that. We require you to be intelligent about what you say. fancy! I see why you balk.:D
Stump a theist!, Ask them to intelligently validate their claim!

So?

I find your whoreship of a god that butchers children an affront to basic humanity and morality.

You're sitting there moping about what a few people write here, yet you read an entire book about a god that lets perfectly good people be tormented for eternity, without batting an eyelid?

Please tell me you see the double standard.

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 70,013 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!

I'm sure I blinked my eyes a million times...and few thousand more since then.
If you're referncing the OT, I've always stated, it's is not on my top favorite lists of reading materials to "pour over"- and what people write here, is certainly nothing I'd sit and mope over either, as I personally do Not believe in good people being tormented, at all.
Quite the contrary, as that actually sounds like it would be very uninspiring, and definitely NOT anything my style.

As far as double standards, I see them everywhere, every day. Probably because in my opinion, we certainly don't live in any sort of "perfect" world.

Something you may like...
Fire Congress
Restore constitutional government.
1. No Bill to exceed 10 pages.
2. All bills are to be accompanied by the Constitution article authorizing said bill.
3. No content in the bill that does not pertain to the title of the bill.
4. All bills must be written in layman's terms and posted online for seven days prior to introduction on the floor.
5. All bills requiring expenditures must disclose total cost.
Including the following:
a) How the bill will be funded?
b) Who the beneficiaries are?
c) Who will pay and the sunset date.?
Congress does not need experienced politicians.
Congress needs people that have suffered the hardships created by these experience politicians.
I'm all for it-- but you'd lose all those special interest pork-barrel richman's purchasing of congress...

... we can't have THAT, now can we?

That would be unjust accolades.
Might make for some good spray painting canvas though.
If you cannot understand / accept the fact of evolution, you should not be in this forum.

You should be in the Liar's forum.

what a total failure to understand the point.

I invite you to show me the evidence. I make no presupposition, I know there is no evidence NOW - you may, however, have found some. AFter 5000 years of failing miserably to produce anything intelligent - basic inductive logic leads me to conclude you still have none.

See what I did there? I used logic. Try it.

My position of nothing.. oops, another laughable failure.
If there are no inputs, there can be no outputs.
THIS is known as logic too - what I'm not doing is making a blind assertion - you are.

What I am not doing is being illogical - you are.

hey guy, if you don't want to be logical, fine, the conversation is over, but your ignorance and outright stupidity in highschool level logic hasn't merited you with anything other than highschool level bleating.

get yourself some substance, for the love of your fabricated god - is it really too much to ask?

^ you skipped the questions bigot. There is no evidence that meets your criteria. Im finally getting through. Go sell your nobclaim elsewhere or spin your wheels trying to prove there is no evidence. You have as much logic as evidence.
