where do you get the crap you spew out?
the god of the man made religions has been proven false. no evidence for any other gods exists. not one shred.
There is as much evidence for God as there is for the multiverse spouted by scientists. The same evidence scientists use to say there are other universes is the same evidence to say there is a God. In the end it will prove God over a multiverse.

no, not even close...

there are many facts that suggest many universes, there is not one teensy weensy shred of a fact that even suggests any god, gods or goddesses.. not one. of you had one, you would have posted it by now.

no human has ever stumbled across a single shred of evidence for any gods...ever...not one...never.

Nothing new. Atheists are naturally scared of Islam. Not only are they physically scared of Islam but also intellectually.
Intellectually scared? Haha is that a joke?

Dr. Venter copied the DNA from one species of bacteria and inserted it into another. The second bacteria made all the proteins and organelles in the so-called “synthetic cell,” by following the specifications implicit in the structure of the inserted DNA. With out the using the other bacteria to make proteins and organelles, he would have nothing alive or living.
False. The DNA was 100% artificial. It was pieced together from **dead** chemicals, using a computer, which used a template created by the scientists. Sure, they borrowed snippets here and there, but it was 100% stored in the **computer**, assembled from a variety of sources.

The cell was **dead** it had no DNA, it could not replicate, it could not feed, it could not grow-- it was DEAD.

The DNA was created from **dead** chemical pieces, and assembled into working DNA.

The result was inserted into the DEAD cell.

Which came to life.

And started feeding, and growing, and reproducing-- faithfully replicating the ARTIFICIALLY ASSEMBLED DNA.

They could tell-- the cells also glowed. An artificial feature added by the scientists.

So you are simply full of shyt as is usual for godbots.

Christholes do not scare me in the least.

They are inept, greedy, selfish and pretty much mindless robots.

Eking out their pitiful lives like the sheep they so closely resemble.

Unfortunately, these morons **do** vote-- and the equally moronic people they vote **for** are literally ruining the country...

The above is not a proof of your god.

Neither is it an argument for anything.

It's just you, desperately trying (and failing) to insult me once again.

How amusing. You actually wasted your time to write that drivel...

"worship"?

That is very demeaning of an activity for ANYONE to engage in.

I eschew worship in any form-- worship is what **slaves** do--when broken-- to their masters.

Worship is a very ugly thing; it demeans anyone who does it too.

So no-- atheists do not **worship** quantum mechanics.

But we accept that it is a pretty darn good explanation of how the universe works.

More to the point? Quantum mechanics-- WORKS. It successfully **predicts** the outcome of experiments. Which, in turn, prove it's worth.

Which is 100% better than **ANYTHING** You idiot godbots have done.

Ever.

In the history of the planet-- religion has found....

... what?

Answer: exactly zilch.

It is not religions job to go into the nuts and bolts of life but only give its purpose and direction.
If the "purpose" is a lie?

And the "direction" is basically hateful actions against non-members?

How is this good?

Another false claim, what a surprise.

You are so full of crap and have no clue on the things you claim to be true. This false claim is just one of your many.

Oh, your back. I thought you got lost in this big universe or hiding under a rock from those nasty Christians. Doesn't your tin foil cap protect you from those nasty Christians?
