There is no scientific proof that life did (or ever could evolve into existence from non-living matter... evolution is a whopper of a lie

It makes Dave's post so much more enjoyable and it is spot on. Just throw in a random mention of Matlock or onion belt to complete the joke.

He made up all kinds of "socks" and posed as different atheists, and then made up more socks and posed as different Christians to argue back and forth. I joined his website because he had approached me for coaching in apologetics. When I discovered his plagiarism and dishonesty, I asked him about it at a local pizza place. He got all defensive and played victim, saying I was harassing him when all I really did was ask him why he did it, and I asked him to remove me from his mailing list as I didn't wish to associate with him any more.

So now, everybody thinks he's me, because he copied and pasted so many of my arguments. He was forced to take down his website, and he left the area. I don't know if he really moved to Cali or not, and I don't really care. I do know that he thought it was okay to challenge people to boxing matches as an excuse to assault them. He challenged me at the pizza place. Kinda creepy huh?

Well anyways, that's why people get us confused. I last posted on here like 7-8 months ago, but I couldn't remember my login information, so I created this new account. So now I'm here as Roman Apologist.

Most fish tanks don't have channels Abe Simpson wannabe.

Now don't pee your britches again and give a specific example of something I stated that was factually wrong. Until then your insults are as toothless as you are.

It's not a later of what we lose it's a matter of what can be demonstrated. Like you are unable to demonstrate proof that Jesus existed.

I went point by point of your link as you requested and I notice as expected you ran and cowered away when presented with facts.

What do we lose of the universe formed as a result of natural processes? Insult to a Bronze Age campfire story?

Se reason all the other mystery religions were formed. Zealot yokels did that back in those day.

The Essene Jews at the time always had some new son of god messiah that they were pushing.

With your answer you obviously do not understand the people of that time period. Messianic cults and religions based on the son of god coming to save all popped up very frequently in those days.

I suggest you leave the apologetic websites alone and actually study people from that time period.

Who in the hell would make up such a lie? What could they possibly hope to gain from it?

No one knows the origin of the singularity or what caused the universe to expand at this time. However, "I don't know" is not proof of a creator. Nothing we have ever investigated has ever ended up being attributed to a supernatural being.

Why would I deny an entity I don't believe in? I don't deny the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus either. I simply equate them all as myth.

Many theists think that atheists (1 actually believe but are too lazy to
obey the rules (2 are soldiers of Satan (another myth we don't believe in)(3 have a natural inclination to be obstinately perverse (4 want to destroy the world or some such thing (5 are deviant and hate a supernatural entity because it doesn't agree with us....and the list goes on and on.

You attribute faith to us (as the thread title implies) when we plainly don't accept faith as any type of proof.

C'est la vie.

Power over people, stature and as always, money or barter goods.

Same as the flagellants in Europe during the 13th and 14th centuries. They would practice mortification of their own flesh in public and preach hellfire and brimstone.

The superstitious peasants would give them what crumbs of food and wine that they had and the (in this case) Catholic radicals would go to rest outside of the village before moving on to the next.

As an extra perk, the young and naïve young ladies would sneak out after dark to bind their wounds. After a few days of eating, drinking and deflowering the local virgins they would pronounce themselves rested and repeat the charade in another village.

This worked especially well during hard times as did the religious revivalists during the Great Depression. Not a bad racket when you think about it.

You know they were gonna call fluffy, "Dave Nelson" when fluffy was invented.

It just seemed like the natural thing to do.

The Dave Nelson was infuriated because he'd already invented, "fluffy", but called, "thingy", by The Dave Nelson, and had neglected to patent the invention due to his work in the emerging, yet unnamed field of magnets, strings, paperclips, and an old Waring Blender™ which was his bRaIn cHiLd, and was going to call it "Somethinlikethat..um Mechanics".

As the patent was just moments away from being finalized, and what we now know as, "fluffy", was to be registered as, "Dave Nelson", he could take no more and with an effort of will so strong that it has never been seen before or since, he sprang in to action.

He then read some words from the !Magnetonomicron!.pdf he'd downloaded from the Monsters&Aliens website and all of that nonsense was quickly discarded.


He then sold his version of "thingy"(which was like fluffy, but ever so much more so) to the now defeated, inventors of "Dave Nelson", and demanded that they name it "fluffy".

And thus, thanks to The Dave Nelson, we have the word and the substance, "fluffy", today.
