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.

The low IQ chump has nothing to say and is attempting to set up a god of the gaps argument.

Why bother. Definition of an 'Expert': "X" = an unknown quantity and a 'spurt' is a drip under pressure.

OK trolly you win, here it is you asked for it.

The second law only applies to the observable universe. Since we cannot ever see past the particle horizon it will never be known the exact condition of the universe, whether it is open , closed or isolated. However the latest findings show it is consistent with the open infinite flat model. Which means it is possibly spatially infinite with no boundary.

The 2nd law of thermodynamics applies only to isolated system or closed system. In an open system an influx of new or an outflow of energy is possible. But since we absolutely do not know the extent we cannot say. So the jury is out when applying the second law to the universe it itself, but works for everything in it.

You don't want to go up against poly and redshift, he practically wrote the book on the subject.

Infinite regression is possible within finite space , as matter fact it. Because that is exactly what the the universe does in opposite , infinite progression. If you went to the particle horizon and proceeded the speed of light back to Earth, you would never reach it, Because it has will infinitely regress away from you.

I'll wait for the background noise to report.

So upon your lies about her having cancer and now has no breasts... We will conduct the test with her @ss and yes you did claim to have a daughter a while back. Unable to keep up with your own lies I see.
This test will conclude for all conducting it that I do indeed have hands. I will even let her pop every one of my fingers in her mouth counting off each one of them to ten.
Now present a test for observable proof for god.
<quoted text>
OK, here's God. See? Now you can see Him and test Him.

There, I've proven God to you just as much as you've proven you have hands.

Now, present atheist for observable evidence for your hands.

If you can't, we'll just assume they're a myth.

I have already laid out the framework for a test proving I have hands. If that's not enough we can take a bet on it and have a doctor verify if I have them or not, care to go a few thousand on it?
If not your hand argument is soundly destroyed, now observable proof for god?
<quoted text>
Laying out framework for a test is not proving observable evidence that you have hands.

So what if a doctor confirms you have hands? You'll have to find a way to let me see the data.

What if I'm blind and can't see the data?
What if I'm deaf and can't hear anything you say?
What if I've lost all sense of feeling?

How you gonna prove you have hands?

If God were watching over Boston at 3:00 on Marathon day, there would still be people alive and with arms and legs still attached.
Another baseless claim?

What IS it with you people?

Provide evidence that there would still be people alive and with arms and legs still attached if God was watching over.

In turn, provide evidence that God WASN'T watching over, which is why people aren't alive and with arms and legs not attached....

It's your claim. It's your onus.

Go.

The way your going on is as if science hasn't gotten anything right. look at the world around you. Mass amounts of Estimates, trials, going back to the drawing board, scrapping, restarting have gone into your world. Will you believe in science if you get some horrid disease? they get medical science wrong too. But look at all the right.
Average people don't have Science Illustrated, delivered to their door.
As with religion you can tell people anything and they believe, maybe they are fooling us!
Did I say science hasn't gotten anything right?

Nope.

That's your assertion.

Atheist evidence for hands? What does that even mean retard?

I have given an observable test that we could do in person to satisfy your hand query. You have yet to give a test to observe God.

My hands groping your lady and we sucking each finger moaning in pleasure is observable evidence for my hands.

Your god test again?

Makes no sense as none of these apply to you. Let's deal in what's actual not what could be in imagination land. Plus If you were blind, deaf and unable to feel anything the last thing you would need to worry about is if I have hands and you certainly wouldn't be posting on topix lol!

Again the test would be done in person with you and your lady. She would be moaning in pleasure and whispering your inadequacies in my ear.

Your what if nonsense questions have no bearing whatsoever and you know it.
