For purposes message confidentiality, done purposely to trick and mislead others. Of course there is a difference between an actual decrypted message and random desert scribbling of ancient nomadic people who sacrificed goats and ate their own feces.

You interpret the bible myth as you see fit, just like every other believer does.

So in other words you are unable to even formulate an argument for your god assertion?

But again, yes provide evidence and I will happily consider it. Without evidence there is nothing to consider is there?

We keep waiting for some evidence to be presented that any god exists and so far all your ilk can do is basically say, believe because I said do. Sorry but childish temper tantrums do not count as proof.

The fact that science is not omniscient doesn't mean it's wrong. There are many theories about all of the questions you asked, which are all bolstered by objective evidence. Contrast that to religion, which just makes shit up wholecloth. Where did God come from? See?
Indeed, rejection of all claims to omniscience seems integral to the philosophical foundation of science, which begins by admitting ignorance of everything and endeavors to discover all that is possible using the scientific method. In this sense, all knowledge begins with ignorance.

Your ignorance is very obvious, as soon as you say shit like a S L O W explosion, we know you are completely scientifically illiterate.

Stop embarrassing yourself and read a science book, anyone will do!!

Guess what......i know the time it takes Pluto to go around the sun, and I know that the moon is not made of green cheese. Ask me how I know such things!!!!! It must real suck to be so completely and utterly ignorant. I often wonder why one of the ten commandments doesn't include something about being willfully ignorant......"Thou shalt not remain willfully ignorant."
It's not green cheese. More of a cheddar I would say.

Human egg.

A lot more complex.

The seed was matter activated by water. Which expanded the matrix.

Big Bang. But different composition and "water".

Starts the whole shebang.

As far as we know, the above video is the result of some complex energy transfers arising from that first seed. Your "random" stuff.

Where did the seed come from?

Go ahead. Pull those covers over your head and scream NO!! NO! IT CAN'T BE!

I have concluded there is only one element of God that we may experience on this planet where we find ourselves.

That element is love. And it is the most powerful element.

I am willing to conclude that most, if not all, of the other elements ascribed to God are inventions of men.

Also, any system with insiders and outsiders has nothing to do with God.

My accepting this required more discarding of intsruction and training than any other poster on this thread has experienced, in my opinion.
So love cannot be an invention of man.

Why not?

[QUOTE] 1.) 18,000 children die EVERYDAY as a result of starvation . A particularly painful death. Innocent little children with no idea what is happening to them, the fear and horror on their young minds can only be imagined. "

Starvation caused by man's doings, not Gods.

Besides, there are currently about 2,000,000,000 children on Earth right now, did you thank God that 1,999,820,000 are happy and healthy and well fed?

No?

You should. You're ready to blame God for suffering, you should be ready to thank Him for prosperity.

[QUOTE] 2.) Thousands of children suffer the horror of having a parasitic organism, that your God thought was a splendid idea to create, burrow into their eyeballs. "

God created burrowing parasitic organisms?

How have you come by this knowledge?

How do you know they aren't an accidental spawn of man's doing?

[QUOTE] 3.) 20 innocent little children suffer the unbelievable horror of the Sandy Hook massacre. "

You think God created guns and commanded Lanza to go kill 26 people?!

We all have free will, which unfortunately includes murderous bastards like Lanza.

[QUOTE] 4.) Every year there are 2 million still births world-wide. You all cry about abortion, yet your God kills 2 million every year. "

Again, why do you think God causes still births or miscarriages? Why aren't you ready to blame US, all of us, for our own misdeeds?

I have never cried about abortion. I'm pro-choice, dumb ass.

[QUOTE] Rational observation------no kind and loving, caring and compassionate being would allow such horrors to take place. "

LMAO!

Are your rational observations peer reviewed?

God allows ALL to take place, from the beautiful little rose to the terrible death of a baby. If He didn't, we wouldn't have free will.

[QUOTE] Conclusion.....No such God exists..........You lose!!!!!"

Um....

I think you needs more steps. 1-4 have been rightfully shiver up your ass.
No they weren't.

They were rationalized away by an infantile coward.

Love is more than getting a piece of ass.

It is an understanding we are all part of something bigger. Each one doing a function for the purpose of the whole. Oh, you can kill each other if there is a threat, but it is just something you have to do in the larger scheme of things. You don't make it personal.

Why do you hate Christians so much?

Sorry I know you hate the burden of proof but when you make an assertion something exists, as you have with god, the onus is on you to demonstrate it exists not others to do your homework for you.

I accept your surrender since it is obvious you have failed to provide proof for your assertion.

To be accurate, he is beyond your limitations of thought. What you call "rational" is on a low level. A little above bootstrap.

Speaking of interconnectedness.

http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/SWN/index.html

Look at those gauges for the solar wind. That means there is a steady input and pressure. It is not like the days of old science where we thought we were so isolated.

The interconnectedness of the earth and sun is a lot more complicated than simple gravity and orbital speed. They have a hint of the galactic effects, but have quantified them yet like they can with these satellites here.

There is a continuous flow of energy throughout the universe, and with it the ability to carry information.

Things ain't the way they taught you, or what you think.

Think big. Look back at yourself.

Why do Topix atheists avoid thinking?

Because it hurts their head.

That is why they default to "teacher" and the "experts' to tell them what to think. They should try a little logic building within their own minds. It is their ass if the "experts" are wrong. And you can buy an "expert" to espouse any "truth" you wish to hear, or advertise a product you want to sell.

Topix atheists are dumb.

Goodnight.

Science has no way of grasping faith in God. To know if God is true you must read and understand what is being said, if you do this, you will have proof by your being, your soul will know and prove to you he exsists. Science can prove of God's exsistence in other ways, such as manuscripts, artifacts, eyewitnesses and etc..

Holy shit, look at you dodge and weave, have you no shame!!!! I NEVER said God caused the deaths by starvation. Here>>>> You're driving down the road, you see two young girls playing in the park, about 9 years old. Suddenly a group of older man come out of the woods, grab bother girls and begin to torture and rape them. You can see police officers just down the street but you sit and DO NOTHING. You simply watch, eventually the men murder the two young girls, slowly, but still you sit and DO NOTHING. All you had to do was alert the police, they were within shouting distance, but you chose to do nothing. This is what your God did as those thousands upon thousands of children died horribly. If you have any balls at all answer this truthfully. What person could or would sit and do nothing as those little girls were tortured and killed? Conversely what God, if he existed and had the caring and compassion you say he has, would sit idly by and watch little children die?

Only God can create life, you know that, stop wiggling, it's unbecoming. God created all living organisms including parasitic worms that burrow into the eyeballs of children, look it up!!!! Now if you want to claim that man has the same ability as your God in creating living organisms I'm with ya!!!!

Once again, for the brain dead...No God didn't create the gun and order Lanza to kill those children, but like the man in the park, he sat idly by and watched the horror.

"Free will" is an illusion. Your God is omnipotent, he knows the future, knows exactly what will happen, could see this slaughter well before it happened, yet did nothing to change the course of history in order to save those children. More wiggling on your part, too funny!!!!

18,000 children die every day of starvation, but your ready to ignore that and say we should be happy for the rest that don't die a horrible death? What kind a rationalization is that?

Actually God has nothing to do with the beautiful little rose, that is the product of evolution with just a touch of manipulation by man. Nor is God responsible for the deaths of children since he is nonexistent. But I do enjoy watching you people try and rationalize the horrific behavior of your supposed God thing. Very enertaining!!!

All you stated was that you have to buy the snake oil without evidence in order for you to believe it will work, that still doesn't mean the snake oil will work. As for the "proof" you offer, that has all been addressed and debunked a million times over, catch up.
