That is stupid. No one has created a star in a lab, yet we have more than we can count.
Up to the 1970's, no one created a baby in a lab! Yet we have billions of them.
Diamonds were not created in a lab until the 1970's, I believe, yet we still had them.
Your logic has failed you.
You used the word "created" three times. And that's the issue here, created.

They "created?" Who is they? If they being scientist then take note to what you said, "created."

Created means purposely made.

Your belief that an all powerful entity would be expected to do tricks on your demand is very strong evidence of a severe psychosis.

No. I meant you. Elijah bought a ticket.

It is remarkable you think you can demand a supreme being to perform for you. Do you do such of other people, or just those that can't whip your ass?

I haven't demanded anything, I think that is just your way of hiding the truth. jesus said that he would do whatever is asked of him, as long as it brought glory to the father. Is that true?

Your and others opinions are meaningless on what is truth or not. Accept the bet or fail.

Come on George Burns look alike, be a man for once. If I can't provide verifiable proof you win $10,000. That would buy lots of magnets and strings!

He didn’t stop Cain from killing his brother but God was the first Homicide Detective. Cain let his temper and anger get the best of him. After that killing I heard Congress try to ban the sell of wooden clubs and baseball bats. Nothing seems to change.

Oh you didn't even bother to see who wrote that book advert you spammed. Bart became an agnostic when Jesus didn't return in 1988 as he thought. When Jesus failed miserably Bart went on a quest to see where he went wrong, educated himself and became an agnostic.

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.

How about a good joke for the evening?

Givemeliberty post #150915

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.

I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.

Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.

Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
