I see reading comprehension is your major malfunction. You have been done with this thread for a while but keep coming back to dance for our amusement.

Faith in the belief that deities don't exist. That's what.
Okay, then you can make one appear, and we will believe.
Make it interesting though, call your deity to appear, an then hold your breath until he shows up for us. Now that will prove who has faith. I have faith you will not be able to hold your breath and you will be quite literately GASPing for air before he shows up.

Sure.
Anyone that says "I've read the bible, cover to cover. I understand it." is nuts.
That's like saying you read a neuroscience book and now you're a neurosurgeon.
The bible takes a lifetime to study and know. Most people never do.
So, the thing's incomprehensible without the assistance of a salesman.

Does that not strike you as odd?

I mean, a deity ought to be clearer, no?

Most atheists like you claim they have proof that God does not exist. As of yet, I see nothing but proof that He does exist. You are empty (and full of anger).

You should really upgrade your standards of what is considered proof.

Wrong.

I do not know of a single atheist who claims to prove that god does not exist.

Also, I, at least am not angry.

Here's how it works:

There is no evidence supporting the existence of a deity.

Therefore, there's no reason to believe in one.

Therefore, I don't.

Fallacy in logic, absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

You gotta have a better argument than that, there are many things you believe without evidence.

Believer: God.

Everyone else: Kewl! Show me.

Believer:*sputtering* BLASPHEMER!!!

You have messed up the argument. Absence of evidence does not apply in this case - you're trying to make "absence of evidence" mean "evidence of existence".

Won't fly. Think leprechauns.

I have not invoked a Deity or Leprechauns existence. I pointed out that your argument is using faulty logic and easy to refute.

Got anything else? Doubt it...

Yes it is, if the evidence should be there. If God suspended laws of physics to interact with this universe we would be able to detect it.

Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence if the scope of that absence is limited. But when the scope approaches universality, it becomes stronger. At any rate, in the absence of evidence, there is always less reason to believe than to disbelieve.

First, I have not postulated a god.

Next, please give me an example of empirical evidence that can prove the number 5.
