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.

I guess once you get past his racism, bigotry and intolerance of anyone not like him quoting his fox news talking points Dave is probably a great old senile guy.
