Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Abiogensis and evolution are not the same thing, evolution is completely understood, abiogenesis isnít but science is working on it.
Yeah, keep the faith they will find it.

And when they do, you will also have the proof we were created.

None of your creations happen with out a cause by you.

There is no mathematics, logic, facts or science that agrees with your assumption that God doesn't exist.

Darwinian evolution relies on abiogenesis.

Darwin said so himself.

Without abiogenesis, the evolutionary framework collapses.

Oh,...the main reason abiogenesis is not understood is that it has never been observed in the history of science, nor has any evidence ever been observed for it.

Ah, lovey, you don't understand the things you read, and thus "know".
Modern scientific thinking believes there is a switch called the Higgs' boson creating gravity.
Wrong. Interaction with the Higg's boson creates *mass* in *some* particles. It turns out not to be the process for things like protons and neutrons.
That is a process within a particle 30-40 times more massive than a proton. Don't know how they missed that all of these years.
Actually, the Higg's particle is about 133 times as massive as a proton. It was theorized about 40 years ago, but it turns out not to be so easy to produce and recognize particles of that mass, so it wasn't actually observed until recently. Separating the signal of the Higg's from the background is a big part of the problem.
Anyhow, that is the magical mystical belief of modern physics. I'm a little more realistic with gravity being a lesser density created by motion within the medium of space. Which means we are part of a larger universe. None of this popping outta nuttin' you believe in.
My consciousness was oriented to gravity, but it sure wasn't confined by it during my NDE. There was an odd switching going on binding me to this body. Happens in your dreams, too.
Not realistic *at all*. We know the properties of gravity very well above the quantum level. Your vague ideas don't even come close to describing how it works. Your delusions have no bearing on the actual physics.

Yes there are. Plenty of evidence.
So Christians cannot defend their own sources? How else could they? You are accusing them of lying, being biased?
Think about that logically.
If the events DID happen ... how else is it to be reported? By those that witnessed it. And if they witnessed it, then they would be convinced that Jesus was God, and that it was all true.
What you are really saying if that you do not trust all the thousands of people during that time period of telling the truth. You are saying you don't trust people. You are saying they are primitive, and superstitious, and backwards. That is what you are saying.
And that tells me that you are a very bad person, and very contemptuous, and that you, yourself, cannot ever be trusted. If you do not see the folly of your own utterly irrational mind and total lack of logic ... the very notion that those that had been there 2000 years ago are not qualified to tell the truth, but you are? You know better than all those people back then?
Please, I dare you to rationalize your position. I dare you.
You do know that the Romans were fanatical about their record keeping. Every event, ever person excited, or crucified. And you do know that NOWHERE in Roman records during that time period is there any mention of the crucifixion of one Jesus Christ who thought he was a GOD. Pretty important event wouldn't you say. They have records of the crucifixions of common criminals, but non for someone claiming to be the son of God. Why is that? Could it just be that IT NEVER HAPPENED!!!! Just another nail in the coffin for the Jesus myth!!!!!

You know what's funny fatboy? I mean other than watching you avoid green leafy vegetables and breaking chairs at the buffet?

When something actually exists we can show observable evidence for it and not rely on 2 penny philosophical word games to demonstrate it.

What time does the buffet open today fatass? I am sure they have bought some reinforced chairs for your big date with your future groom Dave.

You can't possibly.
And if an unknown creative force were acting in natural processes, it would not be "supernatural" would it?
It would be natural.
Are you aware of every single thing that exists in natural processes?
If not, you can't judge whether something is "supernatural".
And if you did, and if it ever acted in natural processes, it would no longer be "supernatural".
Don't you hope I'm not watching next time you attempt to look smart?

Then why don't you show that the alien planet is forming without supernatural aid.

Go for it.

No, it's a matter of telling the truth. Perception doesn't matter, and never will. The world does not changed based on perceptions, but facts. Water can be channeled into aqueducts, that is a fact, not a perception.
Christianity is not based on soft, fuzzy ideas. It either is based on facts, or it is not. Either Jesus was God, or he was a lying fraud and very dangerous. There is no perception, there are just facts.
No, it is not a book of science. It is a TESTIMONY of what was witnessed then, and preserved for future generations, like any other book. Who are you, 2000 years later, to accuse the witnesses and writers of lying and fraud?
If it means so little to you, then I accuse your ancestors of being pedophiles and gas chamber operators. Now ... defend them, or they are guilty. Prove your ancestors did not operate the gas chambers, or rape children. Prove it!
You really don't see it, do you?
Sorry, wrong. None of the New Testament is eye witness. Therefore it cannot be testimony. Suggest you research before you post incorrect facts.

As to my beliefs - you have no idea of my views on the Bible.

And your final puerile comments about gas chambers and paediophilia is as offensive as your lack of knowledge of the bible. Incidently, logical fallacy - you cannot prove a negative - if you wish to post such unpleasant bile it is incumbent for you to prove the spite you post.

Good to see the values that you have - I did not insult you, nor did I make allegations about any of your forebearers, yet you feel it perfectly acceptable to do that to me. Is that what christianity teaches you?

Someone with. 9th grade education could tell you science doesn't seek out to disprove imaginary concepts. They work in something we call reality.

Your god is just an imaginary construct until you are able to show observable evidence. You know actual proof?

Oh that's right you have up trying that and now just throw temper tantrums like a petulant child screwing that nobody can prove the monster under your bed, tooth fairy, Santa Claus and god doesn't exist.

We accept your surrender half wit. As your betters we just chuckle at your temper tantrums now.
