Atleast we Christians have an holy book that talked extensively about our God.
Tell me yours.
The FSM created everything with His Noodly Appendage, starting with the Earth, a mountain, some trees and a midget. And he made pasta and beer so we'd all be happy.

On the contrary...the Universe screams of intelligence. Very self evident to an unbias observer.
Actually it's only "self-evident" to biased observers. Otherwise you'd be able to demonstrate your "self-evident" claims in an objective manner via the scientific method.

You can't.

That doesn't necessarily mean you're incorrect. It only means you're bullshitting everyone when you claim it's "self-evident".

But we all know how fundies do love to ignore the 9th Commandment.

...that is why I said that existence is self evident.
Ah, "existence, therefore God!"

In which case "God" could quite easily be non-intelligent natural forces. As so far the only intelligence that's observed is on planet Earth.

And even that's questionable.

The difference are only in their mode of worship through deities, Jesus, Budha, etc.
Buddha is not worshipped. He is a guide, not a deity.

I only argue that there an observable intelligent self evident process behind existence.
Incorrect. You PROCLAIM there is. You've never actually presented an argument to that effect.

This was covered before...the concept is that God created time and space...therefore he is not subject to the limitation of time and space.
God would be of an infinite nature...or immortal.
By the same token the singularity is not necessarily subject to the limitations of spacetime either, rendering your god moot via Occam's Razor.

<quoted text> Where is your evidence that humans evolved without a creator or maker?
Why are you asking for what has already been presented numerous times which you will reject anyway no matter how much evidence there is anyway?

In short, why are you so dishonest?

And to point out AGAIN for the monumentally stupid people with extreme memory problems, the theory of evolution makes NO theological claims. It does NOT say whether or not (a) God was involved. Hence why both atheists and Christians accept evolution.

I made that point before...Time is a man made construct to measure change.It only exists as a concept...but not in nature.
Perhaps. But what IS certain is that the universe has different states. We experience these states in a progressive linear fashion, in what we perceive as "time". We therefore call time the fourth dimension.

All thinking people have ideologies...fact.
That may be so. But just because you're incredulous of certain concepts doesn't automatically make them an "ideology". The theory of gravity is not an ideology. Neither is any other scientific concept. If there IS an ideology about science then it amounts to little more than a desire to figure out what makes the universe tick. And that's about it.(shrug)

<quoted text>You waste your time arguing with that one. She (at least I think it's a she) is totally intolerant of opinions different from her own. There are many intelligent people with differing views on creation vs. evolution and there are some very convincing sounding arguments from both sides. I personally hold to creationism, but I do respect the rights of others to disagree.
You're forgetting to take into account that Chuck in particular is not quite sane.

<quoted text>Again, if there is a no evidence of a creator, why do we create or give birth?
You can not rule out that possibility.
It's not ruled out. At all. Never has been. All you require is evidence. You don't have it.

<quoted text>You are the liar. You have no evidence but assertions.
Can anything come up on its own?
Yes. Particle/anti-particle pairs in a vacuum.

Keep in mind the hypocrisy of you using this argument. You demand everything "must" have a cause, except your proposal which has special exemption. I dispute that assertion.

So your existence is not self evidence?
