You guys are amazing. You rant on and on about no "official" documentation for a Jesus, even though you are livin gin his legacy, yet absolutely believe you know what happened 10^-34 second after the Big Bang.
Do some drugs. It might kick your heads on the right track.
So, your of the school of thought that says anything is possible. A rock could exist and not exist at the same time. You say it's possible, and of course you weren't there to observe. So you must now accept many possibilities as to our present here on this planet. Panspermia for one, seeded here by an advanced race another possibility. Your weren't here to observe so you really can't say either of these are NOT possibilities. Of course you may still keep you supreme creator theory and just one of many.

Since all logic and deductions are based on present day observations in this time and place, then you simply can NOT know with any certainly that your imaginary being has anything to do with anything.

You could've just wrote "Gosh, I don't know."
OK, gosh, I don't know why you think people are stupid enough to fall for that line of bullshit.

Anytime that a 'christian' is faced with a portion of the bible that they cannot explain, they first try to deny it, then ignore it, then make excuses for it, then cry like a stuck pig if you push them for an answer.

You are at the, "crying like a stuck pig", stage.

What started out to be a joke turned out to be a truth!!
They can make their own reality out of noise.
Music, or noise as you ignorantly call it, does not make reality, where the hell do you get such absurd ideas from? Drugs? Music is part of reality, and noise and music are quite different. What you hear as noise, because of your musical ignorance is actually organized sound. You lack the proper musical education to make the distinction.

That is not a sentence, Eagle baby.

And I suggest you look up the word "recant" in the dictionary.

You must accept there is no reasoning or cause for the first effect.
I know you reason it was god, but then you must answer , what caused god? Then we have an infinite regression of gods.
There is no evidence of gods why put one in the equation?
You will next say special pleading that god is eternal.
But you have not one evidence of eternal gods.
The universe always was, and it did not need a god to create us.
God create the universe! and you! and all!

Like I said, You will find out! My Holy Almighty God, Jet Black, doesn't take kindly to non-believers!

All you have to do is say, "Dear Holy Almighty God, Jet Black, please send your spirit into my heart and show me the way!

You will notice that all, Holy Almighty God Jet Black, believers, believe exactly the same way! There is only one Jet Black sect! Not thousands like some other gods.

Ask his about slavery in the bible. First he'll start by challenging you to find the passages in the bible that support slavery....then he'll say that the word slavery really means servants. "They weren't slaves they were servants. And then when cornered with the passages that describe how these "servants" were paid for, and how they could be beaten within an inch of their lives, his final defense is that the translation I was using was wrong. Of course with 15-20 different version and translations he claimed I was using the wrong one. I guess he knew more than the biblical scholars who did the translation. It becomes comical when you see just how desperate these Theists are in their unsuccessful attempt to defend this immoral book of there's.

James 4:4
You adulterous people,[a] donít you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy 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. Iíll be glad to repost the 6 pages outlining that rape was illegal in the bible punishable by death.
While your at it, enlighten us about Gods instructions to Moses about slaughtering all the men, women, and children, but keeping the virgins for themselves as a reward. Now I'd like you to speculate on just how it was determined that these young girls were actually virgins. Some kind of test? An examination maybe?

Now enlighten us about Gods law that requires a rape victim to marry her rapist.

Then maybe we can cover blood sacrifice.

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.
Oh, you're "pretty sure".

Glad we got that cleared up.

<quoted text>Oh yeah, those powerful hi-def cameras should be able to pick up evidence of microscopic life buried under rock and sand no problem. I wonder why they can't detect fossilized remains hidden deep in rock formations. Nope no life at all, lets move on, nothing to see here.
At least we know there are no half buried Ford Model ďTísĒ in the sand dunes. Neither are there any highways, train tracks, abandoned motels or casinos. Not even a damn boot hill cemetery surrounded by a worn picket fence. Hell they havenít even seen any tumbleweeds.

NASA is actively looking for signs of life. But so far there has been nada. Not even at the microscopic level. Sorry Doc but it looks pretty bleak so far.
