People who believe in dualism will perform endless mental gymnastics to believe in creators that entirely lack evidence.
I think there is evidence of a creator.

It's not the creator described in any of the Abrahamic religions.

But I think an objective inquirer could conclude there is a creator. Some would conclude there is not.

There is evidence for both sides of the argument.

I am closer to the atheist view than the Christian view. I don't believe in a personal, interventionist God. But I believe there is something behind the curtain.

I told IANS once that I thought being an atheist is more rational than being a Christian.

I don't think he appreciated the degree of humility the statement required, given my background.

Additionally, Polymath already explained to you all the cases of infinity. Uhm...I don't remember any of them, but so there!
"always been expanding"??

You mean infinite time in the past?

We could have never reached the present. Can't traverse infinite time.

Polymath's offerings were soundly defeated, folded, spindled, and spoliated.

Someone else said it. Black Sheep I think.

I think babies are born Buddhist - "one with everything".

Courts are not allowed to rewrite the Constitution.
With the First Amendment cases, they rewrote it anyway.
They took an establishment clause which was ratified to prohibit federal interference with matters of religion and now use it as a requirement for interfering with matters of religion.
The rewrote it to mean the opposite of the text.
That's our Buck.

Often wrong, but never in doubt.

Judicial review is not "rewriting the Constitution".
Justices are still confined to the document, as written and amended.
In fact, they take an oath swearing to adhere to it.
Most of them lied, of course. At least the liberals did.
Where have the good guys gone?

The Roger Taneys.

Those who approved of slavery.

Another buckism – sow obfuscation and lies to make himself feel better about himself – it’s an egotestical (correct spelling) peculiarity used by hard of thinking
Debating a front linesman that had his head bashed in by a thousand head butts, and was shot dead but too dumb to know it, is an exorcize in futility. Buck should have gave up everything but

Evangelical Christians played a major deciding role in the American abolitionist movement.
-PBS 3 part series - http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/fi...

Abolitionist allies Frederick Douglass, William Lloyd Garrison, Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown and Angelina Grimké turned a despised fringe movement against chattel slavery into a force that literally changed the nation.

Agnostics, Jews, Atheists played their role...
How much we accomplish when we are together.

A team of astronomers announced April 17, 2014, that they have discovered the first Earth-size planet orbiting a star in the so-called "habitable zone" -- the distance from a star where liquid water might pool on the surface. That doesn't mean this planet has life on it, says Thomas Barclay, a scientist at the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute at Ames and a co-author of a paper on the planet, called Kepler-186f. He says the planet can be thought of as an "Earth-cousin rather than an Earth-twin. It has many properties that resemble Earth." The planet was discovered by NASA's Kepler Space Telescope. It's located about 500 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cygnus. The picture above is an artist's concept of what it might look like. By Suzanne Presto, CNN

Cocaine is God's way of telling you that you are making too much money.

Cocaine, crystal meth and alcohol are the gateway drugs to Christianity, second only to prison conversions.

It all makes sense now... AARRGGHH

Gay marriage and marijuana being legalized on the same day.

Leviticus 20:13

We're just interpreting it wrong!
