Personally, I could care less.

I just made some observations based upon your persona on here and statements you made. In my opinion you are piece of shit.

Let others make their own judgments on you based on what they know.

Guess what troll,'m not atheists, which proves all you post is hyperbole.

If your religion was “advertised” on TV, you religitards without any proof of its validity, would run to your phone and buy it, at any cost. If your parents didn't tell you that Santa Clause was fake, you'd STILL be believing in him too, fool.

You aren't atheist? Well, please forgive me. Let me correct that to read the following for your particular case.

Speaking from personal experience I see. Maybe if you didn't waste your time with some loser religion you'd have better self-esteem and not feel that way about yourself. Oh bother.

Atheists don't need a skydaddy to keep watch over them. They have their fellow man.

Careful who you have in that outdoor hot tub with you, Catcher.

Oh yeah, make sure everything on your property is up to code. No unpermitted buildings, trash piles, etc, etc, etc.

Ain't science and technology grand?

Sorry, I am not as hip as you. It must be because I am really in my 50's and you are really a young kid.

But you did answer my question; the christian god isn't interested in talking to christians anymore than it is interested in talking to me.

We do not know the mechanism. But, your choice of language is telling. It shows a bias that is unreasonable in this context.
For example, NONE of the atoms in your body is alive. None of the basic components from which you are made is alive. An oxygen atom or a hydrogen atom are 'dead, lifeless, sterile material'. The same can be said for every other chemical element, but you are completely made from such elements.
In other words, YOU, a living thing, are made from dead, lifeless, sterile materials. You really should think about this point. Everything alive is made from atoms and those are all, according to your language, dead, lifeless sterial materials.
The point is that chemical elements are NOT sterile in the sense that they interact with other chemical elements in complex and interesting ways. And it is in the variety of those interactions that we get life. There is no 'life substance' that is added to 'dead lifeless atoms' to obtain life.
It takes more than mixing chemicals to come up with living cells. It takes purposeful and precise bio engineering. RNA and DNA had to be assembled through precise engineering to have this run on life.

Happenstance creation as you would want to believe. It doesn’t happen that way in labs and it didn’t happen that way in the beginning. Science research is a testament to that fact. Life doesn’t self create from non living things.

The answer that Atheist want can be found in the beginning. If you are an Atheist. You should be thinking about how all this life started from lifeless material without purposeful intervention.

You would have a very strong argument if we had repeatedly produced in a lab life from non living material without intrusion. It has not happened. It hasn’t happened on Mars and it hasn’t happened on the Earth.

“Even your hero Bart Erhman states the Josephus and Tacitus passages are forged.“

You were the one who brought him up as a reference in post #154652. I would like to see proof that the world would end in 1988.
