Your DNA example doesn't work because, first it's a natural occurrence and was mentioned only after being observed and properly documented unlike the god created during campfire tales of desert nomads who sacrificed goats while chanting about their deity.

If you weren't so fat, ugly and stupid you could tell the difference between the two.

Again the concept of DNA was presented after observable and testable data was produced. The concept of god was presented during animal sacrifices by desert nomads who thought the earth was flat and created during the Bronze Age.

Green leafy vegetables Buck, go buy and eat some.
I shudder to think what Bucky would be like without Jesus.

I think it's better we let him have his fantasy.

So your Alzheimer's tells you babies are born speaking? Sure Dave they are born, cleaned up, wrapped in a blanket and start discussing stock prices with the parents and hospital staff.

I notice you and Buck have both been praising Jesus today and bashing the Catholic Church. Shall we chalk this up to your pillow talk with you caressing his ample man-breasts or have you two found your church for the big day? Have you got Buck his wedding gown yet?

I don't know why you say that, you are an atheist too. Or do you accept the claims of every religion?
Oh no, not this argument again.....

With that logic, I'm an atheist because I believe in one God.?

But you know the definition of an atheist is a person that has no beliefs in any gods.

There is so much more to consider when parents proclaim that their little ones are Christian or Jewish or Hindu or Muslim and so on.
To say that someone is "Christian" is to say that the someone understands:
1) the story of the life of Jesus as told in the Bible
(2) the concepts of heaven and hell
(3) the concept of "faith" in an invisible entity
(4) sin
(5) forgiveness
(6) the Triune God
(7) communion
With all this complicated theology in mind, picture a 5-month-old infant contentedly filling her diaper, and try to convince anyone that she understands all of the above.
Awesome. So then no one is born gay. They must reach a certain level of maturity to understand sexual behavior and/or "friendly" encounters.

<quoted text>I've never heard of the ica stones until today. But I've been reading up on them. The ones you can see being made at their museum are replicas for sale, like a replica Declaration of Independence, or a Mona Lisa. They aren't being advertised as the real deal.

They real ones have a natural varnish on them, caused by bacteria that takes a few thousand years to settle & turn into varnish, all of the "real" ones have that same varnish on the rocks and on the scrapings.

Until you've done exhaustive scientific research on them, it's only your atheist indoctrinated closed-mindedness that makes you scream "GODDIDIT!"

Again, if God's murder rate is less than your arbitrary definition of modern warfare, then God's murders are OK? By that logic, we can determine that the slaughter of the Hugenot by the Catholics in France was morally OK because the death rate was lower than WW2. WTF?
<quoted text>
Obviously you've never read the Bible.
I would wager that not a single Xtian poster in this forum has ever read their Bible. There is entirely too much biblical ignorance on display by those that should have at least taken the trouble to read their 'Operators manual' aka the Bible.

The comments are predictable and almost robotic from years of indoctrination by the clergy.

Apparently, she does understand and is filling her diaper with what she thinks of it.

I believe you have fallen of the track again and drifted into gay-phobia.

However... I shall indulge your desire to comprehend homosexuality among living species on our planet.

10-12% of ALL humans are homosexual. And this goes back to the beginning of time.

Take the time to read the entire article.

You know after that post of his I pity him. No I am being totally serious.

I show an example of this creationist good hugging this forged stone that the man admitted he made by using dinosaur pictures from comic books and then using cow dung to give the stones an aged look. The creationist Ben after being told they are forged takes his pictures with them anyways because his faith tells him they just can't all be forged! It's something people laugh at and ridicule the loser about.

RR sees it and seriously thinks this proves that there was dinosaurs stomping around Peru alongside tribal man.

Wow. Unholy hell wow.

Interesting, but the "curved space/time" is a hoot.

I told you a dozen times what gravity is, and you still think it is a number.

BTW, that sophistric bullshit they use in describing physics isn't really needed, unless they need to bullshit.

These poor Topix atheists haven't got a clue about what is being pulled on them.

We will leave them to their fantasies. Easier than really working.

An atheist is a skeptic of religious claims. I just go one religion further than you do, that's all.
