There is no proof, it's all an argument from ignorance. "This is too complex for anyone to figure out, therefore god". To me the most laughable part is the jump from deism to Christianity. Not that I'm saying you make that leap yourself, but your friends at the Discovery Institute do.
The intelligent design hypothesis is not based on complexity.

Stick to cartoons. You have no grasp of this subject.

LOL! Thanks for that tip. I should have known: quantum mechanics explains it all! Amazing.

Of course not. It's based on Jesus.

Stalin was motivated by atheism. He murdered millions to achieve state atheism.
This is settled history.
No he wasn't and no, it's not. Conservipedia, Apologetics, Inc, and Christianity, LLC are never reliable sources for any information, especially history. Stalin was a mass murderer who killed for political reasons. Stalin killed millions of people for Stalin. The people he killed included both Christians, Jews, Muslims, and atheists. Stalin was a Georgian. Stalin killed more Russians than Hitler did. He was a Pharaoh, no less a god than Invisble Dear a leader in the Sky or whatever nonsense you believe. Killing in Stalin's name is no different than killing in Yahweh's name.

Even if that were the case, how do you pin the blame on atheism then? Does atheism insist that religious people be executed? I must have missed that memo.

Haha. Yep. I love that you can plug anything into the designer's spot and it changes it not one iota.

I asked Crick to explain what a non-designed universe would look like. He said he couldn't as he had never seen one. He admitted, right there, that ID is not falsifiable. He is just too steeped in delusion to admit it. The Great Reincarnating Energy of Piscataway designed the universe! You can't prove it's not true! My hypothesis is grand!

Hey, Widdle Kitty, you're too scared to even reveal your location. Is it Rikers, Folsom, or Leavenworth? Does your cell ate leave a bad taste in your mouth? Do you find him hard to swallow? Do you need a donut pillow after a long night on the bottom?

<quoted text>Sure, you never heard of Tucker. Bwahahahahaha. You are a fool who tries to win by playing baby games. You never have one iota, one jot, or one tittle of relevant evidence for any of your ludicrous assertions.
Okay, so you blithely omitted the name of your vaunted reincarnation researcher so you could pull this nonsense. So, then it was his forebear, Stevenson. In any case, there is no credible evidence for reincarnation, no unbiased studies, no peer review, nada, nix, nothing.
If there were, you would be shouting it from the rooftops. There is no scam you won't believe. I can get you a good bridge in Brooklyn very cheaply or I can hook you up with a Nigerian looking to give away money. Bwahahahahaha.
I can beat you in a fair fight, an unfair fight, and an IQ test. You'd just rather make anonymous threats on the internet like some pusillanimous child. Here kitty, kitty. Come to Texas.
No, you were right. It was Euripedes. Dr. Euripedes.

Praise Jesus. His design was so intelligent he put on foreskins so mohels would have to perform non-consensual mutilations on infants while suckling the blood from their newly shorn phalluses. It's such an intelligent design. Whoops, wait, not that flap of skin! What was I thinking? Cut it off! Ewwwwww!

Speaking of which. Who was Jesus' mohel? After all, Rabbis are scrupulous record keepers and you'd think after having that bright star light up your work space and being able to smoke all that myrrh, the old nebbish would have written something down about the condition of the Royal Peen.

I told you it was not "falsified".

Not that it was "unfalsifiable".

I don't expect you to know the difference. Talk about something you understand. Maybe jerking off?

Wait, but I though Buck said that ID was backed up by the scientific evidence. Doesn't he know that a scientific hypothesis must be falsifiable? That's pretty basic stuff.

Hmmmm. This is really undermining Buck's credibility.

If that is your goal then who do you continually push people away from it by your un-Christ-like behavior? You undermine your cause almost every time you post. Maybe it's because you are too lazy to do the things that Jesus calls on his followers to do. It's alot easier to call yourself a Christian than to actually be one.
Galatians 5:22-23 "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."
Matthew 7:15-20 "“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them."
You are a thornbush calling itself a grapevine. The only one you fool is yourself.

Thanks. That's the Wilderice we know - blurt out an assertion, get it knocked back in your face, then deflect to a different complaint.

All is well in Topix Atheist Land.

That's a pretty funny comment coming from a member of a death cult.
