I contend the preponderance of evidence lies on the side of a prime mover vs any other accountable position of belief. Your entire forum is a nothing farce. I love watching you fight so hard for a supposed nonclaim.
Your whole narrative is reliant on God to have a voice. Logic and rationality are lost on liberal atheists. Do you have an example of evidence that meets the criteria you hold others accountable to?
How does a bigot measure the evidence for the following possibilities: prime mover, always was, something from nothing. Show your work.
You can't even make up an accountable position to debate vs a prime mover. The reason your forum won't engage is they realize just how futile their nonposition is.
Debate nothing with your other personalities. I don't debate nothing Stumpy.*58
Make sure to skip the questions. Nobody realizes just how helpless you are LOL. Questions...a-a-a-a

You skipped the questions. Your silence exposes you realize that you have no evidence stronger than that of a prime mover.
Come on back when todays march is over. What's the object of your venom today?....St. Josephs orphanage?

christians are sad pathetic people. I don't hate them, I feel sorry for them. Fully grown adults who still believe the fairy tale of god break my heart.

I am an atheist and this headline amuses me. I have not seen any atheists marching. The last time I marched was in the Marine Corp outside Da Nang in1970. My boots were wet and muddy and my feet hurt.

I have made a few mistakes in my life but the one mistake I never made was wasting my Sunday's in church and providing the charlatans and televangelists with a life of luxury by giving them my hard-earned money.

"A fire-breathing dragon lives in my garage"

Suppose I seriously make such an assertion to you. Surely you'd want to check it out, see for yourself. There have been innumerable stories of dragons over the centuries, but no real evidence.

"Show me," you say. I lead you to my garage. You look inside and see a ladder, empty paint cans, an old tricycle -- but no dragon.

"Where's the dragon?" you ask.

"Oh, she's right here," I reply, waving vaguely. "I neglected to mention that she's an invisible dragon."

You propose spreading flour on the floor of the garage to capture the dragon's footprints.

"Good idea," I say, "but this dragon floats in the air."

Then you'll use an infrared sensor to detect the invisible fire.

"Good idea, but the invisible fire is also heatless."

You'll spray-paint the dragon and make her visible.

"Good idea, but she's an incorporeal dragon and the paint won't stick." And so on. I counter every physical test you propose with a special explanation of why it won't work.

If there's no way to disprove my contention, no conceivable experiment that would count against it, what does it mean to say that my dragon exists? Your inability to invalidate my hypothesis is not at all the same thing as proving it true. Claims that cannot be tested, assertions immune to disproof are veridically worthless, whatever value they may have in inspiring us or in exciting our sense of wonder.

This question? " Do you have an example of evidence that meets the criteria you hold others accountable to?"

Are you really that ignorant? Atheists DO NOT attempt to hold anybody accountable for anything. It is the christians that try to hold the world accountable. Usually through threats of burning for eternity or some other such nonsense. By the way, I didn't see where you tried to prove my invisible Dragon didn't really exist. Like disproving your worthless god, it is impossible to disprove my Dragon, but that doesn't prove god exists, either.

Your line about stumping an atheist blah, blah, blah is nothing more than a childish attempt at deflection in order to avoid facing the truth. You're pathetically ignorant and refuse to abandon fairy tales.

I won't argue with a grown man who just stepped off of the short bus, so carry on, I'm through schooling you. Btw, next time you talk to your god ask him for a working brain.

Before I leave I have a question for a christian. It will more than likely stump him, but... "If there truly is a god, why does he let hundreds of thousands of purely innocent children suffer agonizing pain year after year?"

I've heard the old stand by about, "god works in mysterious ways" and "god has a plan" and "we aren't suppose to question the big guy", but if you have a definitive answer to my question please enlighten me.

If you are an actual human being, and not just a bot, please know that there are medications that work wonders for OCD these days. Perhaps you should ask your primary care doctor for a referral to a specialist who can write an appropriate prescription. Life's too short to cut and paste.

He's an idiot. The best thing is to ignore him and not waste your time. That's my plan.

People who thrive on repetitive arguments can't stand to be ignored. I think it is hilarious that he represents the religious faction. They should be proud to have him as spokesman!
