My goodness. When did I ever say I was certain there is no god? You invented that position out of whole cloth to argue against. You're either stupid or dishonest at this point.<quoted text>
You keep trying to cop out of providing a case for your belief, and that is how I know that you are retreating from your position of alleged certainty to a position of agnosticism. If you really were an agnostic atheist, your would have absolutely no problem presenting your case as to why you don't believe.
And you keep asking for evidence even long after I presented my case, forever pretending the onus is not equally on you to provide your evidence for your belief.
To say most atheists value the scientific method is an unwarranted generalisation. Most atheists I meet don't even know what the scientific method is. They merely point towards some social problems as evidence of no God.
If not providing evidence of intelligent law all around us, then what would ever be evidence? Even that you have not stated. Admit it, your disbelief is based on emotion. You are very good at dismissing "this is not evidence, that is not evidence", but you still, after so many posts, did not state what would constitute evidence to you. Even scientific law is dismissed as apologetic nonsense to you.
I don't believe because there is no evidence to believe. Very simple. I don't need to "present evidence for my belief" because it is not a belief. It is a lack of belief. Very simple. You are playing apologist games, acting as if I am even making a positive claim. I am not. I am asking you to provide evidence for your positive claim.
You have provided no evidence. You made a feeble attempt to ride to coat tails of current science. In what bizzaro universe does our scientific knowledge count as proof for god? By the way, how did you determine that the laws of the universe are "intelligent?" You are making dishonest assumptions.
It's hard to tell you what I would accept as evidence when we are talking about something I don't believe in. People define god in many ways, which is why it is up to the believer to define his god and then provide proof for it, not the other way around.
Does your book make any positive claims? Does it say that prayers are answered? If so, I bet we could see how that holds up against scrutiny.
