There was a guy on the PTAG thread who claimed God threw a rock at him; hit 'em in the head with it. He kept the rock. What believer wouldn't? At least he has something to share... some evidence.

Gotta wonder...

Why would that guy's god be chucking rocks at him?

Even more perplexing...

Why NOT at RR?!?
I can think of lots of reasons a god would be throwing ricks at some of his believers.

I would wonder more about why he doesn't throw rocks at more of them.

That reminded me:-
There is a guy who is playing golf with a priest. While they are on the 10th green the guy misses a three foot putt and says, "God dammit, I missed."
The priest tells him not to use vulgar language on the golf course.
Then on the next hole the guy misses a two foot putt and says again, "God dammit, I missed."
The priest tells him that if he continues to use vulgar language on the golf course, he will have God strike him down with lightning and kill him.
Then on the next hole he misses a one foot putt and says, "God dammit, I missed." All of a sudden a tremendous bolt of lightning comes down and kills the priest! Immediately after, a voice comes out of the clouds and says, "God dammit, I missed."

Yet you argue against them constantly to maintain your delusion.
That's where you lose the right to respect.
There are tons of books and websites aimed at the non scientist that explain these things with great clarity.
Why not read up on some of them before spouting off about how wrong they must be because they don't fit your religious views.
Ahh, the godbot's arrogance of ignorance.

A snarky comedian is one of your prophets?

You guys seem much more emotion based rather than rational based "freethinkers".

Even to the point of claiming "science" as an atheist invention, and as "proof" there is no deity. All science can or has done is provide a methodology of assemblage. It certainly hasn't disproved a creator.

BTW, all modern science was started and enabled by theists.

Did I call Stewart a prophet?

No.

Did I claim science as an atheist invention?

No.

Did Stewart?

I dunno. Did he?

Did I say science has disproved a creator?

No.

"All modern science was started and enabled by theists."

If that's true, then it happened in spite of them being theists, not because of it.

Anything else I can clear up for ya, Dave?

Since you two seem to be so hell-bent on proof, logic would dictate that you keep your minds open that God *might* exist unless proven otherwise.
But you don't.
You've come to your own irrational conclusions, without proof.
Way to go, "freethinker"...
I don't need proof, just unbiased evidence.

You can continue and prove my point about emotion based reasoning versus rational thinking. You are doing a good job. Carry on.

Dave tends to do that I'm afraid. You can always tell when he is on the ropes desperately losing when he starts in with his... Topix atheists ( insert rambling here )

Now be careful how often you factually prove him wrong. After a while you will break him and he becomes to terrified to even attempt to answer your questions.
