Odds are, you'll be a dead Christian long before she's a dead atheist. Will you save a spot for her energy in your EM bubble? That would be nice of you.

Once you specify operationally what a god is, the hypothesis that there is no god is scientific, since it is falsifiable by producing a god.
Your Atheism takes sides. Science is neutral. That is the difference. You should not be allowed to justify your anti theism by wrapping it in Science.

The question is this.
Do you belive that your god has the power to end starvation? Yes or No?
That power is delegated to us. Starvation is our problem.

Those people died because of religions like Christianity, Stalinism, Islam and Maoism. Worship is always a mistake.
So now you connect Stalinism and Maoism to religion. How convenient for you. Ignoring the fact your anti theism is the same as their anti theism. You just claim different results. Reading your posts there is not a dime's worth of difference since you engage in hate speech, ridicule, distortion all the time here. Above is an example of propaganda.

I left off an f.

Thanks for your concern. I have a new leg. It has a microprocessor in it. It reacts to the muscle movement in my thigh. I does whatever my old leg can do and more. I have an app. I can make it move even when I'm not wearing it. Halloween is gonna be fun :)

Totally. Science, the tool, is neutral. People aren't.

If you understood what science tells us about human brains and enculturation, you might have a better understanding of how your Christian experiences are encultured brain experiences - subjectively biased, imagined representations of reality.

Yet we see more and more Christians accepting the fact of the Big Bang and evolution.

You are still raging against the machine. Your emotions blind you to seeing it in its totality. So you have grabbed onto something to create your own view. You just found another religion in furtherance of your passion. Such is evinced by your black and white views expectorated about religion, particularly that immature one about it stifling science. You totally ignore the fact that many deistic and theistic scientists look upon science, and the scientific method, as a way to see how higher forms assembled this existence. A back engineering to find God. Outside of organized religion. No, you have to paint them ALL evil.
YOUR science is stifled by your emotion.
You are too damned young to be as wise as you like to think.

You seem to have no problem wrapping your pro-theism in scientific ignorance.

There it is.

The #1 motivator for Christian belief.

At some point, just about every Christian alludes to it.

You think of your heaven and you think of your hell when you think of death, or your deity.

I truly feel sorry for you because you obviously live in such a state of fear and conflict, that you feel the need to mention it so often.

What a shame.
