Again note the positive assertion.
"God doesn't exist."

<quoted text>Here, this is much better!!

1.) A mythical being for which not a shred of evidence exists, snapped his fingers and the entire cosmos magically appeared.

2.) This same fictitious being scooped up some dirt, blew on it and a fully formed human male magically appeared.

3.) This same imaginary being ripped one of the males ribs from his body and suddenly, without any further explanation, a fully formed female magically appeared.

4.) All the billions of species suddenly appeared in the form they now appear in. Of course 99% of those became extinct, and apparently, again with no evidence, new fully formed specced magically appeared.

5. Science will replace God, Atheists will have nothing to do with it.

Notice how many times the word "Magical" has to be used, since no other proof is possible. Lets let the intelligent people compare the two.

1.) There is cosmological EVIDENCE for the singularity.(big bang)

2.) There is EVIDENCE that the building block for life, Amino Acids, can come from non-living matter. Complex chemicals zapped with electricity produce the necessary ingredients for life.

3.) There is BIOLOGICAL EVIDENCE that from single cells animals more complex organisms arise.

Please take notice of the words EVIDENCE and try as hard as your shriveled religiously poisoned mind will allow, to understand the importance of that single word. The most hated word in the english language ,if you're a brainwashed Theist.
Atheist believe:

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.

I see, so to start a planet like Uranus spinning the opposite direction as the other planets what would that take?
Did it first have to be stopped from spinning and restarted in the other directions?
Impact and collision from and with another celestial body or bodies. Such as during heavy bombardment.
Its possible it stopped and started in the opposite direction, but the most likely scenario is that it shifted it's orbit.
Uranus rolls like a barrel, Venus rotates opposite.
If it was flipped from an impact it would still be turning in the same direction it started , but is upside down.

I thought one of th emain atheist arguments was there were no contemporary extra-Biblical accounts of the Old Testament? Where did you get that date?
*sigh*

Possibly a local variant, yah.

I live in Flawda (or Floriduh - both terms are popular)- we get a lot of stuff'll hurt you here.

It well behooves visitors and snowbirds to familiarize themselves with the local flora and fauna.

Well, so far,

1. no one has tried to say that the Tooth Fairy is real and that if I don't believe in her, I will burn in Hell.

2. no one has tried to force the Tooth Fairy into public school science classes.

3. no one has tried to force me to buy the Tooth Fairy's commandments to hang in public buildings.

4. no one has forced, "One Nation, Under the Tooth Fairy", into the nation's Pledge.

5. no one has forced, "In the Tooth Fairy We Trust", on our currency.

6. The Tooth Fairy doesn't have priests who rape young boys and then hides the priest from prosecution.

Need I say more or is this getting through?

I agree with you on what you posted. These young people being lured into the industry has no idea it may cost them their life.

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--A recent study of Chlamydia and gonorrhea infection and re-infection rates for adult film industry performers from 2004-2008 revealed startling findings regarding the high rates of sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) in the adult film industry, said AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) today. Among the findings: Chlamydia incidence in adult film performers was 8.5 times higher than the rate in Los Angeles County residents aged 18-29 and 34 times higher than in the general population. Gonorrhea incidence was 18 times higher in porn performers than Los Angeles County residents aged 18-29 and 64 times higher than in the general population.

Startling Statistics
The demographics of the cases and the re-infection rates also proved illuminating. Among the facts:
75% of cases were among performers aged 18-29
72.4% of the women infected were between ages 18-24
55.4% of the male performers infected were ages 20-24
Between 2004-2007, the re-infection rate within one year was 26.1%
Female performers were 27% more likely to be re-infected than males

ďThe rates for Chlamydia and gonorrhea of adult film industry performers were 34 and 64 times higher than rates in the general population in Los Angeles, respectively, and 8.5 and 18 times higher than rates in 18 to 29 year-olds. Part of these increased rates might be explained by more frequent screening of workers in the adult film industry, compared with the general population, and more complete reporting of cases to the local health jurisdiction by clinics that serve industry workers.
