The problem with secular atheism:

To know something to be absolutely true, you have to know everything.

Without knowing everything, you cannot state anything is aboslutely true...

----------

This is where atheism falls down.

If cannot account for "EVERYTHING", therefore it cannot account for "ANYTHING".

And yet ABSOLUTES exist and we are consciously aware of them.

Revealing the inbuilt knowledge that God gave us.

Now the atheist, when confronted with this, has two options:

1. Accept that absolutes exist and deny atheism.

2. Hold onto atheism and deny absolutes.

Most opt for option 2...

...Which they find preferable to facing the truth of Gods call to them.

The very act of denying absolutes, so that the atheist can hold onto his rejection of the source of absolutes, is the sure sign that they are in fact in polar opposition to the truth.

Their behaviour and denial, confirms the obvious truth.

Pray Dave, regrow that limb for her.
Nothing fails quite like prayer.
"Religion consists in a set of things which the average man thinks he believes and wishes he was certain of." ~Mark Twain
"Our Bible reveals to us the character of our god with minute and remorseless exactness... It is perhaps the most damnatory biography that exists in print anywhere. It makes Nero an angel of light and leading by contrast" ~Mark Twain
"If Christ were here now there is one thing he would not be -- a Christian." ~Mark Twain
Why should I? If a supreme deity wanted her to have another it would do it. And with considerably less pain than regrowing one. People aren't salamanders. Well, you might be.

I'm real glad the Creator withheld brains from spirits like you. You would be dangerous.

The nature of truth, is such that it reveals error.

Gods existance is self-evident.

The arguments against that therefore, must always reduce themselves to illogicity.

Which they do, when you examine them logically.

So atheism actually proves Gods existance...

That's equality. The agenda is "endorsement".

You forgot a rant about climate change.

And when you get around to it, we can discuss the First Amendment.

Separation of church and state and that sort of stuff.

You have a unique way of deluding yourself into believing in the imaginary. There is no such thing as
"inbuilt knowledge that God gave us". When we are born we no concepts of anything other than how to breathe and cry.

Following your scenario you must admit you know nothing.
So why tell us anything?

What I’m about to say is personal to you. Yes you have a life but you know in your heart there is something missing. You’re far from being a shallow person. You have this intellectual depth that many don’t have. In your heart you have wondered, is there more? What you are missing is an adventure, a whole new place. And that place is an experience with Jesus Christ.

Deeper than the deepest ocean and higher than the tip of the stratosphere is a experience that you can have. If only you were willing to venture out of your realm.

You are a liar, Plymouth. Evidence means absolutely nothing to you. Your view of science is religious in nature. You are no different than a holocaust denier or a Noah's flood proponent. All that differs is the subject matter.

The EM effect is the basis of all interaction and perception in the world you live in.
Why are physicists so stuck on gravity and refuse to follow those processes in greater detail?
Electrical engineers have affected your world much more than gravity based physics theorists. At least you got more return on your dollar.

Just when you thought Dave couldn't sound any dumber! Any sane person would know that in a life or death situation you would want every advantage possible you idiot!

Damn that brain damage has fcked you up George Burns look alike!

You should be ashamed for even saying something like that I must say.

Little one, atheists don't believe in deities.
Why do you display such an anger against a non-existent deity when it was random chance and reactions that cost you your leg? Was Jesus driving that car?
You are a beautiful young woman with a lot of soul and intelligence. Without that leg missing you would just be another one of millions. With that leg missing you become more unique and precious. If danger appears and you had two legs, you would run for your life by yourself. With one leg you will have a huge crowd gather about you to protect you.
