One observable fact, thanks to the Hubble Telescope, is that our universe is apparently expanding from a central point.

All those planets, stars and galaxies certainly don't seem to be shootin' off in all directions; they appear to be moving outward from one central point.

I think it's absolutely unreasonable to discount God as our creator unless evidence is presented to discount Him.
Unless that happens, it's just an atheist belief.
I feel like you have become more unreasonable since I stopped posting here regularly. A few months ago, I never would have thought you would endorse such an outrageous position.

I don't think you will find many atheists who completely rule out a creator god. However, all you're doing is reiterating the same old, worn out argument from ignorance that I just classified as laughable. Something is not true just because we can't totally rule it out.

And I think I might start keeping a running tally of how many times you claim that atheism is a belief only to have someone explain to you why this is incorrect, only to reiterate the same asinine assertion days, or even hours, later.

Trust or confidence in something is just another way of saying faith in something.
Evolutionists certainly employ a lot of (or a leap of) faith to reach their "findings".
Humans have an innate curiosity & need for answers. People like atheists love to hear that there's "proof" of non-creation when in fact there is none.
Take abiogenesis for example; if humans succeed in creating a life from non-life, you lose.
If humans show that nature can create life from non-life, I lose.
You have faith in the former, I have faith in the latter.
What? You're playing a semantics game here with the faith/trust/confidence thing. "Faith," as you just defined it via jesus, is not synonymous with trust or confidence. Faith is belief in the absence of evidence. Trust is evidence based for most people, and for those who give trust freely, it is hopefully at least amendable. For example, if someone trusts their spouse to remain faithful, this sentiment would most likely be based on a history of non-cheating, current behavior, etc. If someone was to automatically trust a new significant other in their life to remain faithful, this trust would likely be subject to change - and "change" is not a feature of faith. "Faith" is a rigid, narrow belief in something in the absence of, and sometimes even in spite of, the evidence.

I would appreciate some proof that the TOE is based on faith. I don't think you will be able to adequately support this assertion.

I don't think that atheists delight in "proof of non creation," at least I don't. I simply don't think that there is any compelling proof for creation, and until such proof is forthcoming, I will stick to the most rational position available - that is, atheism that is open to change based on evidence.

Your abiogenisis example is wrong. If humans succeed in creating life from non life, assuming no magic is used, that would support my position. You are ignoring the fact that if indeed we do create life from non life that it would be accomplished by totally natural means - which is not how your god supposedly created life.

I know, I used to be a skeptic. I understand that point-of-view.
God can & will supply the evidence you need, but you must have faith in Him first.
That's backwards. You're saying "god will show you he's real, but first you must insulate your mind from outside influences and prime it to accept mundane psychological phenomena as divinely inspired majesty. You can believe, but first you must believe."

Absurd.

How? I said that faith is a harmful, or at least non-beneficial meme, and that education was a beneficial one. You made the claim that neither was inherently good or bad. I disagreed, and explained why. How did I move the goal posts?

You're wrong, dude. A skeptic is a person that doubts, not knows.
Doubts can be reversed.

Do try to come up with an original insult, rather than flattering me by imitating me.

Fail.

I don't remember the full conversation, and not going to dig it up but...

This "faith is a harmful, or at least non-beneficial meme" is not a provable or even a viable assertion.
You would have to be alot more specific. Ergo...
I have faith I will succeed at the task in front of me.
Faith is beneficial to many, even in false beliefs.
Many need this to drive them, but some of us are past this.
Example..

Children have faith in Santa and try to be good, so he will come to their house and leave their wishes. This is a false doctrine, but a healthy one that is a part of growing up. This is not harmful and is beneficial. We outgrow this faith in Santa , but realize the lesson and learn as it helps us become the "Santa" later in life.

Poor little Myron. With my superior intellect, I've reduced her to a simpering and quivering pile of penguin shit, incapable of original thought. She now is forced to imitate me in a lame-ass and failed attempt at revenge.

Another chew toy has bitten the dust. I guess I'll have to find another.

Hey, RR? If you can find the goodness in your heart, maybe you can sew her little button eyes back on?

Mylan. Penquin shit. Sometimes I just crack myself up.

There's faith, and there's faith. Reasonable, and unreasonable. I have faith that my Cherokee will start when I'm at Costco in the rain, for example. Do I have faith that a god of *any* kind is going to fix all of our problems? Nnnnnope.

I also have faith that Myron will come back at me with another lame attempt at insulting me, but who really cares what that pile of penguin shit believes?

As for me, I happen to believe in self-defense. I am very pro-choice, and people have a right to choose for themselves whether or not to own a firearm and I don't believe the government has a right to take away that choice. Especially if it's Constitutionally guaranteed.
so you don't care what god thinks and you call scaring people with guns "self defence"
