Many atheists think Christ existed.
Stalin was an atheist, he murdered and tortured for atheism, and he sought to produce an atheist Russia.
No honest person denies this.
Stalin did not murder for atheism. That's impossible. Only a fool whose entire dogma is based on lies woul ever proffer that. Oops, yep, you.

You can't kill for atheism. Idiot.

Then you are confused. ID is a scientific hypothesis, and has nothing to do with philosophy.
Darwinism has much to do with philosophy.
Geneticist and Darwinist Richard Lewontin:
"Our willingness to accept scientific claims that are against common sense is the key to an understanding of the real struggle between science and the supernatural. We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstantiated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment, a commitment to materialism."
A prior commitment to materialism, which means the philosophy comes "prior to", or "before" the science.
ID is not scientific. It is not a hypothesis. You have already admitted it is not falsifiable, nor can you point to any discovery or quality of life improvement based on your charlatans at Apologetics, Inc.

Play the fool. It suits you.

<quoted text>
The creator would be necessarily independent of time because time's existence was inititiated by an act of the creator, namely, the emergence of the universe in which time is defined.
If the creator was created, such an event would still be independent of time, as time would not exist except for the action of the created creator.
More to the point, nobody believes in a created god, so nobody believes that type of god exists.
The cyclical universe model you imagine does not help the problem of a caused universe and the traversing of infinite time. It relocates the necessity of a cause further in the past, and the infinite cycles would mean that our present cycle could never occur, and we would not exist and not be discussing it.
Nobody?

Neither time nor space can be infinite.
Nothing can be infinite. Once a quantity of something becomes known to exist, it can never exceed a finite quantity. Each successive addition is the next larger finite.
The cyclical universe cannot be infinite, and must be caused. The first cycle is encumbered with the same causality requirement as the single universe.
And if you say there is no first cycle, then there can be no present cycle and we do not exist. Arriving at the present requires a finite past.
Your infinite stupidity and dishonesty...wow, look, a squirrel!

You were created from a sweaty grump and a trail of regretful tears. Nothing would be an improvement. Or, your mother swallowing, instead. Bukakimare. KiMare's delusional choice.

Yes, esp in a person who is making a speech. It does work in autobiographies too.

Goodbye all.
Thank you for sharing your decision.

But you will be missed. I enjoyed our discussions, and learned things about life from you. I will be honored if you consider me a friend.

You can't kill for atheism. Idiot.
--The historical record of killing for atheism is 182,716 times worse on an annual basis than Christianity's worst year.

--There is a 58 percent chance that an atheist leader will murder a noticeable percentage of the population over which he rules.

--Atheist crime against humanity is 18.3 million percent worse than the very worst depredation committed by Christians, even though atheists have had less than one-twentieth the number of opportunities with which to commit them.

you concept of infinity is flawed
conveniently so, for your purposes
but totally flawed
the number line is infinite, yet we easily get to 4 or 92 or any other place needed or desired
There is no number line.

You show it to me, and I'll show you why it isn't infinite.
