The trolloping tripe of your trolling type.
Just as I quoted in my subsequent text...

...Ad hominem.

Is that really the best you can do?

Lets try this again:

To know "anything absolutely" you have to know "everything absolutely".

Atheism denies God, and cannot know anything absolutely.

Therefore it cannot making any absolute knowledge claims, that includes a denial of the existence of God...

...It refutes itself and cannot be taken seriously as a challenge to Gods existence.

Case closed.:-)

God reveals Himself to humanity through the absolutes He created.
Those that deny God realise this, so they deny absolutes rather than accept God.
Reducing themselves to absurdity.

And the only response left to those clinging wildly onto its pretentious claims is of course ad hominem.

Count the posts before this happens...

Even some of the best wines are being put in boxes. Modern science has found a way to preserve wine better than corks that rot, and air in partially filled bottles.

That way you can limit your intake, and not feel compelled to finish that second bottle before posting. It will keep its flavor.

You mistake aptitude for inherited knowledge.
How are the laws of logic related to aptitude?

Your response makes no sense.

False analogy.
What? You acted as if observation was the Key! The only thing that you know about Pluto and the BBT is what the scientific community has told you. What credentials do you have to be able to call one a lie and the other valid?

But watch out for this one:

The atheist claims that absolute knowledge us unknowable....

....then makes absolute knowledge claims.

Again displaying the absurdity of the atheistic position.

This suppression of truth, denial of truth, whilst appealing to the truth, as revealed to all by God, shows the internal conflict inside the heart of every atheist.

It is like trying to run away from your own legs...

Do you have a rational argument to make or do you expect everyone to just bow down and accept your arbitrary opinion?

But let us look at your argument.

To imply something is "dumb", means you have an authority of absolute knowledge to point to.

Can you share, as an atheist, where you get this absolute knowledge you are appealing to?

Are you omniscient?

Pluto can be observed empirically with the aid of a telescope...

The big bang cannot.

False analogy...

Thanks for the tip, but I'll pass on that.

So, you are absolutely sure about your absolute god?

You do know that the god you worship was invented about 3,500 years ago, right?

Are you saying that nothing of the Big Bang can be observed? No evidence at all? Is that what you are claiming?

Yes.

Because He has absolutely revealed Himself to me and to you as well.

The only difference is, that I chose not to reject that revelation.

Are you making an absolute knowledge claim here?

How can you do that?

As an atheist you cannot know anything "absolutely".

Unless of course you are claiming omniscience?

I am saying that you have never observed the big bang, neither has any other human being...

Where you there?

Do you know anyone else who was there?

Do you have pictures?

Video perhaps?

Any empirical evidence?

No?

Again, you cannot know the big bang happened unless you know everything...

Despite your many arbitrary claims to the contrary, you cannot make any absolute knowledge claims.

And be taken seriously....

The inability to step away from ad hominem is clearly evident here I see...:-)

Do you have a rational, reasonable argument to make?
