You're such a moronbafoonidiotretard.

That's saying we can talk about one or the other.

How about this, for that superior intellect of yours:

"If we're talking about food, we can talk about apple pies and we can talk about ham sandwiches."

Does that mean they're the same to you?

It doesn't mean they don't exist.

Except of course to you "freethinking" people of superior intellect....

Three very simply claims, all positive, demonstrate to us all if these claims are either true or false. Supply reason and logic for your answers.
I can't demonstrate them either way, so I won't make any grandiose claims.

No more than you can prove that God doesn't exist.

Thank you.

Well, there's this.

"I set My rainbow in a cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant [promise] between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh." - Genesis 9:13-15.

It was soon after that the Leprechauns started their hiding pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.

But, we know the world wasn't destroyed by a "worldwide biblical deluge". We know "all flesh" wasn't destroyed by the biblical deluge.

It is myth. Just like Leprechauns are myth, too.

Science has a good record for being able to detect reality.

Science really can't detect or verify unreality.

And you can't demonstrate your god thing either, yet you make grandiose claims. At some point you'll just have to admit that what you believe in is only imagined. It's ok, really, people believe in all sorts of crazy shit, you'll just be another crazy shit believing person. No big deal. Unless you really care about whats true. You apparently don't!!!

You are a doorknob! First let me slap you around for trying to be cleaver (using someone else's words. Here is why you are stupid,

You first start by using a self-refuting statement, "invisible pink". Public school, huh?

I hope there are not many stupid people out there that would breed with you, just saying!

I'll bet you're an acne riddled teen, with a nose ring and pierced eyebrows, totally lacking in basic hygiene. You dropped out of school and think drive by posts make you look cool. You sling shit and avoid any adult dialog. Uneducated, crass, full of self-doubt, and prone to bed wetting. Is that about right????....Yeah, I thought so!!

Still backing down from your comment about how believing on god automatically makes you better than other people and gives you the right to look down on them?

<quoted text>IOW - You spend a lot of time talking and arguing about a deity you don't believe in.

I can't understand why.
I try to keep my topics to the damage that religion causes.

As a matter of course, religion involves the belief in some version of god, so it necessarily enters the conversation.

Your argument here is just a common method to attempt to shut us up.

It won't work.
