No, no, no. It seems the atheists are only interested in God. They seem to spend more time discussing Him than theists do.
Statement from the following web site...

http://www.godandscience.org/apologetics/unic...

Argument for and against (wasn't sure what they were trying to prove! LOL) the "invisible" pink unicorn...

"Invisible pink unicorns?

Can we determine the existence/non-existence of invisible pink unicorns? Actually, the answer is "yes." Unicorns would be pink if they reflected pink electromagnetic radiation (i.e., light). However, in order to be invisible, the unicorns would reflect no electromagnetic radiation. Therefore, the term "invisible pink unicorn" is self contradictory. Therefore, we know absolutely that they could not exist. I don't know who invented the term "invisible pink unicorns," but they were obviously deficient in their physics education.

However, for the sake of argument, let's change the term and drop the "pink" part. Is it possible to determine whether or not invisible unicorns exist somewhere in the universe? Technically, it would be very unlikely that any organism would be invisible. The only reasonable chemical basis for living organisms in this universe is carbon-based life. This would ensure that unicorns would always be visible. Although possible that unicorns might be invisible due to being made of anti-matter, such existence would be problematic, since their interaction with ordinary matter would result in their immediate and spectacular destruction. Could unicorns be made of exotic matter? While possible, there is no evidence from physics that any creatures could be made of exotic matter. At present, it is possible to detect exotic matter only indirectly through particle physics and through its ability to bend light (only detectable through gravitational lensing of distant galaxies). At this point, we would be unable to detect a unicorn made of exotic matter. So, although we can be fairly certain that invisible unicorns do not exist in the universe, we could not take the strong aunicornist stance.

Alone in the Universe: Why Our Planet Is UniqueIs it possible that pink unicorns might exist somewhere in the universe? As of today, we don't know if life exists outside of our Solar System. Some scientists believe that life is common throughout the universe, while others think that all life or only advanced life is rare in the universe. The origin of life by naturalistic means seems extremely improbable. In addition, the earth seems to exhibit unusual design, since the existence of tectonic activity on such a small planet for such a long period of time is probably the result of an extremely unlikely collision event early in its history. Without tectonic activity, the earth would be a waterworld, since continents would not form. Advanced life (beyond fish) cannot exist on such a planet (hence no unicorns).

Atheism requires that abiogenesis (a naturalistic origin of life) is at least possible, if not likely, and that habitable planets are common throughout the universe. Such a scenario, if true, would make it likely that pink unicorns do exist somewhere in the universe. Therefore, an atheist would be illogical to assume a strong aunicornist stance. The unicorn argument as an argument against the existence of God fails logically, since it is not possible to definitively show that unicorns do not exist somewhere in the universe."

Let me ask you a question.

If two male friends of Jesus told him they were getting married to each other, what would Jesus say to them?

And, what's the basis for your answer?

I'd be charged with child abuse and neglect, and rightly so.
Theists would worship me.
Though Adam is a Son of God he was also created as an adult man... not as a little boy.

There were several things he was tasked with and accountable for before his wife came on the scene. So Adam was an adult and accountable for his own actions... Perfect in the day he was created but made a bad choice out of his own autonomous, free will. Eventually, he chose to not trust in God.

Maybe it is. I don't think of criticisms of intelligence as character attacks.
I have been reading your responses to me found here:
http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...
http://www.topix.com/forum/topstories/T0N0LOR...

To the above I was going to simply respond with,“I personally find that to be an odd statement.” and leave it at that. Yet I found myself repeatedly coming back to your simple statement, as I worked out the rest of my response. At this point, I do not think that anything that I say to the rest of your response matters much, if I do not understand your perspective on the above. I do not understand how anyone that bases their view of life in general on logic, could honestly say such a thing. Can you explain to me how questioning another’s intelligence is not a character attack? Intelligence has ~much to do~ with character. Let me give you an example:

“Intellectual Empathy: Having a consciousness of the need to imaginatively put oneself in the place of others in order to genuinely understand them, which requires the consciousness of our egocentric tendency to identify truth with our immediate perceptions of long-standing thought or belief. This trait correlates with the ability to reconstruct accurately the viewpoints and reasoning of others and to reason from premises, assumptions, and ideas other than our own. This trait also correlates with the willingness to remember occasions when we were wrong in the past despite an intense conviction that we were right, and with the ability to imagine our being similarly deceived in a case-at-hand.”

Do you feel that you personally have this character trait? Do you see what I am asking you? I have the feeling that you do not understand what you actually said to offended me. In the rest of your response to me you say that you think I have a problem with how you view of:“the Christian church, the bible, its god, and faith-based thinking”. You are wrong when it comes to the Church, Bible and God… To be honest I value the outside opinion. What I do question is what you mean by faith-based thinking. The *only* reason that I do so, is because you point blank said that believers have closed minds (or barely qualify for a mind).

Sure they would, just like people who don't agree with or believe in nuclear weapons make sites that point out the folly of nuclear weapons.
Or pollution, or animal abuse, fossil fuels or any other thing a person does not have a belief in.
They utilize many ways to speak out against that.
Deities included.
Good point.

I hadda think for a minute and you know how I hate that.

The difference with those examples and the anti-theist nuts is that the anti-theist nuts try to proclaim their beliefs as fact. They try their hardest to make others follow in their footsteps.

It's kinda like the anti-gun nuts or the anti-abortions nuts. They all seem to have the same attitude of "my way or the highway".

That's not an answer, it's kicking the can up to the sky.

The atheist blaming God.

I know, I know, you're not *really* blaming God cuz you don't *really* believe in God....

BUT - Why is it that atheists always use that kind of example? "Why does God allow innocent children to die of leukemia?"

Why is it NEVER something like: "Why does God allow innocent children to be so happy with crayons?"

There's a huge difference. There's no doubt the Bible exists, right?

The websites poke fun at Christians who buy into the nasty stuff in the Bible.

What's wrong with that?

And yours has been the typical Christian response for this thread. You had no problem with Dim calling me "liar" without evidence, but you object to my use of the word "moron" with Dim in response to that.
You have a double standard - one for your own, and another for unbelievers. Given that, why should I respect your judgments about either Christians or non-Christians?
I will offer you your own words: To read you is to know you.
Why do you think I haven't said anything to Skom about name calling? When I read any post where people are calling each other names I more or less shudder, recalling it is easy to be drawn into these arguments that are never ending. Why do you think it has been written that there is regret and shame at some of the things written in the past and the hope that one has grown sufficiently to overcome that arrogant humanity? Indeed, to read is to know...... I most definitely agree with that
