Which of those two posts did I say that emotions don't exist???
I said they can't be scientifically proven or explained.
And I wrote "DO", not "Do".......
"Nobody can prove scientifically that emotions exist"

They certainly can. Read the articles.

It is something I have observed.
The invisible and the non-existant are very much alike.
I searched for the origin of religions and found them all false.
In other words, "There isn't any god RR" is just your opinion.

Thanks.

You should start adding that little detail in when you're telling someone about something.

Brainwashing. Most every time that I hear a christian talk about morality, they bring up the ten commandments, but they only recall 4 or 5 of them.
They say, "god gave us the ten commandments! Don't you think that it is a good idea not to kill, steal, commit adultery or lie?"
OK, that is 4. 40% is not very good.
They sometimes throw in, "Shouldn't children obey their parents?"
OK, 50% isn't much better.
Let's face it, you don't remember the sabbath and keep it holy.
You have images all over the place.
You don't misuse your god's name, mostly because you don't know it.
You lie your ass off. If fact, some believe that it is OK to lie, if you are lying to bring people to god.
Every 'christian' on here has bragged about how much they have.
When asked why 'christians' don't follow all of their god's laws, they quickly claim that those nasty laws were for the Jew, not the 'christian'.
Hmmm, cause this is how god starts off the 10 commandments;
Exodus 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
My people weren't in the land of Egypt.
Guess what?

My people aren't in the land of Egypt, either.

I did read those articles. The only facts in them was the fact that we have emotions and how we act or react to them.

Not why we have them.

Not where they come from.

Not proof.

They come from living in groups and chemical reactions in the brain. If you try to take a dog's bone, what does he do? He shows his anger and thus, hopefully, avoids a fight.

Emotions can and have been scientifically proved to exist. That is entirely different than explaining why we have them or where they come from. So you are quite wrong to say that science can't prove they exist.

Nothing. You laugh at them.
Then they start giggling, ranting, and looking stupid on the sidewalk all by themselves, thinking they scored something.

How is it you are critical of lack of proof in science but not lack of proof in your religion?

<quoted text>It’s weird, Atheist don’t believe in God. Yet they believe all life just magically self created from sterile material and made this crazy run on the earth. We know that’s impossible because scientist have not been able replicate it in this modern era of science.

Then they point at us believing in a myth. But it’s acceptable for them to believe in a myth. Even though science does not support their position. They say science will one day will come up with an answer for how it all started.

Science will come up with a time machine way before they figure out the genesis of life.
LOL

Lets look at their myths

1) Big Bang when nothing exploded.
2) spontaneous self generating life.
3) one very week single cell life form
creating all plant and animal life that ever lived.
4) That atheism will replace God.

LOL!!!

Again Christians eagerly anticipate this, hence there goes your absolute morality and truth.
What did you think of Dave confessing he purposely hurt animals as a child? You before had something to say about people who did that but let me guess when it's your fellow Christian you are okay with it yes?
<quoted text>
As far as the future that you are eluding too. There will be more wars and conflicts just as there has been since the beginning.

History has recorded over 200 million deaths under Atheist leadership. We all know Atheist leaders do not have a clean record when it comes to human rights.

If you will remember Jesus feed the five thousand. Atheist leadership embraced communism and starved the millions.

Maybe poly will explain it yet again. I'm sorta tired of rampart denial and stupidity.
the big bang. Where nothing exploded and created everything. Or as some now are changing it up to sound less ridicules claim that when a singular (that contained all matter in the cosmos and was no bigger then this period .) exploded S L O W L Y creating everything.

Ya this second explanation sounds way more plausible. One other thing. What made it explode?
It had been sitting there for most of an entirety then just on a whim it thought
"Hey let's try something different"?

Yes sir, you folks real have something to hang your hat on with that one.

I can see why with such a solid foundation as that you feel superior enough to call creationist crazy.
