Me three.

Quite interesting stuff.

Achieved status - earned or chosen.

Ascribed status - skills, abilities or efforts.

Welcome to the fold, Atheist.
I believe in a god, God.

Please show me the definition of theist where one must believe in all gods.

And don't use the Topix Atheist! handbook.

Honey, you want to know the answer to questions like that I suggest you start grade school again, when (if) you qualify you can move on to college and after qualifying there you can move on to university. I reckon 5 years study should set you up to begin learning where the energy came from.
However as it stands I know you are not up to it, the way you role about laughing when I mention any quantum theory is evidence of that.
As for the conversion from energy to matter, that’s easier, maybe two or three yeas study on the first 300,000 or so years of this universe shroud suffice
Thanks, Christinemc^2.

That sounds like a great plan, except for one thing -

Even if I do all that, they can't answer the question.

You could've just said you don't know.

That's like asking how tall you are and you answer "this tall".

LMAO!

No one knows how big the universe is.

Except for ChristineM from Topix.

The God you claim to know can't be omnipotent.

Wrong again, Christinemc^2.

Power is not limited to energy. Power can be matter. It can be lots of things.

Wealth or money can be power. My physique and handsome looks are power.

Power is not the same thing as energy. So your proof is worthless.

But we already knew that.

A specific capacity, faculty, or aptitude. Often used in the plural.
"her powers of concentration".
Strength or force exerted or capable of being exerted; might.

"the western powers".

Forcefulness; effectiveness.
"a novel of unusual power".
A large number or amount.

turbines turned by steam power; a sailing ship driven by wind power.
The capacity of a system or machine to operate.
a vehicle that runs under its own power.
Electrical or mechanical energy, especially as used to assist or replace human energy.
Electricity supplied to a home, building, or community.
a storm that cut off power to the whole region.
The rate at which work is done, expressed as the amount of work per unit time and commonly measured in units such as the watt and horsepower.

,, the state of marriage has always been in flux ..
.. in regards to matrimony, Jesus preached egalitarianism, denounced hierarchy and endorsed complementarianism ..
,, instead of following Christ's teachings, the Roman Catholic Church established a marriage model that favored the male. The women's movement changed all that and there's no turning back ..
.. the Christian rhetoric about 'traditional marriage' is archaic, the revolution has already occurred, women no longer obey, men no longer rule the roost and gays are demanding the same social and legal support system that heterosexual couples enjoy ..
.. some church leaders are trying to quell the GLBT insurgency through shenanigans, political intrigue and religious condemnation. This entrenched regime has supporters and it will not exit quietly ..
.. change is difficult and, for some, it's a hard pill to swallow. I can even empathize with your position, something you treasure is changing, social evolution is happening and you probably feel powerless to stop it ..
.. may I suggest you take a moment, pray to your God, meditate and reflect. Ask Him if He thinks gays deserve the support of society. In a quiet moment, you might find the answer ..
I think I already know the answer.

Yes, gays deserve the support of society.

I also think they can have that support without legal matrimony.

And losing marriage as we know it, I think something important is lost - the idea that the best foundation for families raising children is where every child has one parent of the same sex, and one of the opposite sex, so that the examples of what it's like to be a man and a woman can be conveyed.

I also know that view is losing.
