You argument for the First Cause was one of the following:
1. Infinite regress.
2. Uncaused cause.
3. Don't know.
4. Not God.
5. Quantum.
But so far you have stated that it can be any of the above, but the one thing it cannot be, absolutely is:
God
Showing that you are actually totally opposed to the idea of God, right from the start.
Proving the case, that you are indeed suppressing the truth of God as you cannot even allow the idea of God to the table.
Which is not rational.
You have zero evidence of god, but we have evidence of spooky action at a distance....and a host of other quantum effects.

Want to talk quantum entanglement?

Causality cannot happen without the laws of logic...
Causality is logical by its very nature.
As is reason,(when practiced properly).
All pointing to the logical First Cause.
But you don't want to go there.
So you have to deny either causality or the laws of logic to prevent yourself from going there.
Which one will it be today?
Why , because you say so?

There are much smarter people who are discovering you are wrong.
Poly knows this, and is trying to explain it to you.

Maybe you should listen instead of talk?

How could it not be?
Time was caused, that is painfully obvious.
So whatever caused Time, had to be eternal/uncaused.
That time and energy regresses back to origin, is the reason that the Big Bang theory was proposed.
It is obvious that it all started somewhere.
It could have been an echo , or hiccup , or even another universe.

Amusing.

Spooky actions that violate your non-circular logic of science. Things appear and disappear, or don't work the way that non-circular logic predicted.

Yep, no possible way there can be a higher entity interacting with this universe. Just spooky anomalies.

Right?

So what created the universe?
I do not pretend to know, but am pretty sure it wasn't like the creation story of the bible Dave.

I think it is beyond our understanding atm, but we may eventually figure it out. There probably are many universes expanding out of this one,and out expanding out of many others.

You do? Then you are fu{king stupid. Sorry, I did try to sugar coat it, but I don't lie.

Doesn't it fry your ass that we know more about the age of Mars than we do about your God. Here we have empirical evidence for the age of Mars, a big piece of rock orbiting the sun, how very much we know about it, yet the supposed creator of this rock and everything else in the universe, has not a shred of verifiable evidence. Oh, thats right, he actually touched you on the head.....cue the twilight zone music!!!!!
"we have empirical evidence for the age of Mars"

Please, divulge this evidence...

You can't, you know you can't.

The age of Mats is estimated & assumed based on the age of meteors, not based on the age of Martian rocks or soil.

Again, please share your secret knowledge of empirical evidence on the age of Mars.

2 Timothy 3:16-- "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.");
the writers are inspired of God

(2 Peter 1:21-- "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.");

I believe the holy word of God...

This continuous spamming is proof there is a purpose to scam the readers by bringing scripture out of context and misrepresentation of scripture over and over. Repeated spamming.
Everyone enjoy this mans spamming, because he will repeat it another 100 times before the end of the year.
If anyone is serious about hearing a recant to this nonsense about rape. I’ll be glad to repost the 6 pages outlining that rape was illegal in the bible punishable by death.
Yes! I would love to hear you say that "take hold of and humble her" is a good thing! LOL!
