Defend the impossible? No I'm here to discuss the possible vs impossible. Which leaves only the improbable, and

"once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." (Spock)

The only thing proven not to work, is your mind.

You are under the belief that the material world self-organized into biological life as the result of finding components laying about. You are ignoring the likely possibility this original assemblage could well have been designed, resulting in building blocks for further development. Abiogenesis and evolution are not necessarily the same thing. Adaptation, evolution, is demonstrated every generation.

Man can mix chemicals and manipulate them with EM. We do it all the time with electricity. We can make matter dance and sing to our tunes, and even send it off into its own little world for a while making its own music.

The same components that make us.

What makes you think it wasn't done to us? You just want to believe it couldn't be?

The Darling boys were The Dillards. They only knew one speed to play at, full speed. The Country Gentlemen were much more versatile.

So what's the difference between just saying someone is a god and someone is a superhuman?
It's the same thing. You're adding a claim on top of a claim. It doesn't actually SUPPORT the initial claim.
It's not the same thing, not at all. God isn't human and can't be "superhuman"....

I understand that you closed minded atheists have a need to turn everything into children's stories, but that doesn't make it true.

So fulfilled they cavort in social arenas with godless heathens. Hmm God would object!
I do enjoy all the pageantry however. The RCC has superb costumes, rituals and buildings that put the other cults to $hame..

It's the exact same thing.

There is a claim that is absurd/impossible. The claim is rejected for being absurd/impossible. The claimant says "It's not absurd/impossible for a superhuman/god."
