Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Einstein got his smarts from sitting in a patent office and reading the theories and applications that crossed his desk, then thinking and coming up with his own theories. Some of which is wrong. Why no grand unification theory.
He read. He thought.
You just read.
Yes and much of which is right, your sat nav would not work without his theories, television is an application of his theory of light. His musings helped to prove the existence of atoms and molecules.

Science is working an a unifying theory, your god is not so why no god magic?

I read an learn, read and learn and lets face facts here reading is far better than davesworld day dreaming

The infinite regression argument is invalid against existence of God, as it is stipulated as "eternal" - independent of time.
It works against items such as plants, animals, the universe, as they are not independent of time.
Where is the evidence of this, I would be very pleased to read it, as I am sure just about everyone else, god believers and otherwise would like.

In fact if you can provide such evidence I really think you would have it made, You would solve a millennia old quandary, people have been looking for thousands of years and no evidence found, anywhere. Just think you would be rich and famous beyond avarice.

That sat nav and most other thingies came about from building on existing technology and trial and error, not his theories. Those technologies were set up by others. Faraday for one.

If mathematicians are not working on solving 1+1 = 2 and why 1+1 is not = to 0, then why would God be working on a unifying theory?

Huh?

Just a point: 1+1=0 if we are working modulo 2. This can be quite useful for those working in computers.
What is 0 x %(infinity)- 1 /0 +(1/0)=?
A meaningless stream of symbols.

I guess you must be christian and are totally unaware of my disability so I can understand your ignorance whether it’s deliberate or not.

Actually no, this is a long standing joke that you would not understand and I meant davesworld, exactly as I wrote it. But again you were not to know that.

Yes I did mean on, not an, and not an, basic mistakes that many dyslexics make and mistakes that ignorant godbods love to pick on because they have fook all else to play with. Funnily enough it’s that exact same christian mocking of my disability that is the sole reason why I am no longer christian, good to see that you keep up the traditions.

Why would god not, it’s one of the things godbots love to rant about and it is claimed your god myth is omniscient is it not? Or perhaps you delusional enough to think, as do many such christians, that you know the mind of your god?

<quoted text>You really are not smart. Basically, science on works with physics and at macro levels. When it comes to quantum mechanisms and singularities, time and physics can not be measured and therefore neither can God. Basic, which is why no scientist worth his salt ever ventures into the supernatural realms, because they understand that science can only measure the physical realms.
So because there is a question that YOU cannon answer then it is me who is not smart, OK, I follow your logic there, I think it’s called deliberate ignorance.

So you argue from ignorance, may I suggest you look at the mathematics of Dr Param Sing to see if the mechanisms of singularities can be considered.

And the argument from incredulity does not work either, what you are saying is “This is the option that best suites my sensibilities there it must be fact”

Try using a sat nav without the relativity algorithm.

When fist designed for the US military they had to have a relativity switch that disabled that function because they were then as skeptical as you are now.

That switch has been superseded with ALWAYS ON

I know exactly what I know and where does hate come into it? I am not the one hurling mockery and abuse, that’s you.

Honey I don’t even hate the christians who tried to kill me but I must admit, there is s special place that I would live to see those christians that tried to kill my children

Hmmmm....

Maybe Polymath can plot a course from wherever you are out there back to home.

Of course, we will have to figure where you are. Any identifiable galaxies you can recognize? No, of course not. Let's see... Oh, I know. Start beeping out some signals in a pattern that can be recognized as intelligent. Maybe in a few years we can locate you.

On second thought, that may not work either.

You did pack a good lunch, didn't you?

Lovey, your associating the acts of a few to a whole religion and wishing its destruction is not what they call rational.
