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.

Here is my position on evidence relating to proving the existence of God.
No one piece of evidence on it's own is going to convince a resistant skeptic. I know that myself.
However, I feel that the extraordinary claim can be satisfied based upon the cumulative evidence such as:
The Cosmological Argument
The Teleological Argument
The Ontological Argument
Philosophical Arguments
Historical Evidence
Medical Evidence (NDEs)
Presuppositional Arguments
Intelligent Design Arguments
Each of these on it's own may not carry the standard of proof you claim needs to be so high. However, when observed cumulatively, a fair minded skeptic may not concede, but will admit it's an impressive total body and attempt at extraordinary proof when evaluated honestly.
i thought you said evidence, not more whining.

Agrumentum ad Hominem is a logical fallacy. It demonstrates a weak argument or a lack of an argument. But I can applaud your creativity and I can tell you that I don't consider it an insult.:)
It's just a game.

Nothing more.

I haven't had time to play lately.

I will. I will.

I will dissect every sentence you write and add to it at my whim. It's what I do.

Hey I would be satisfied with some god regrowing a person't lost arm or leg for them as a miracle. It's easy to have a plant pretend they are blind and then when an ancient holy man touches their forehead they jump up and declare thy have been healed. Restoring a severed limb is a bit tougher.

Oh I had some fun teasing kids after I was told the truth about Santa.. Something I had suspected especially when Santa couldn't find the transformer I wanted one year! Replace Soundwave with Skywarp how dare he?! Lol!

Thanks for admitting your God is only as real as Santa. Oops didn't think that one through did you? Lol!

So as I correctly stated you just made it up.

Thank you for once again confirming I was right and you just make things up as you go.

<quoted text>Mr Liberty likes to accuse me of changing the subject and I can assure you I don't. I just lay out my case or my understanding with all the pertinent information needed. Notice he accused me of making shit up about the "Dewey Defeats Truman" fallacy. It's not an actual fallacy per se. I just created the analogy annd aimed it at him.

I have factually proven you wrong several times and you still have failed to answer the majority of my bible questions. I guess that's why you resort to insults yes?

The only entertaining you have done is admitting the dishonesty of the gospels and cowering from questions.

<quoted text>Don't trouble yourself with Liberty. Snarky responses are his forte rather than logical thoughtful replies. I guess it's easier being snarky. I answer his ignorance for the entertainment value. Quantum Bob, Polymath, Albtraum, Aura Mytha, I can take them seriously because they actually come up with thoughtful replies. I don't agree with much they say, but their replies and personalities are much better than the average. Black Lagoon is pretty good too. I don't think atheists are evil. Just stubborn.:)

<quoted text>I would tend to agree with you, but here in topix land we have to define everything very carefully. And in arguments with Buck via his citations of The Stanford definitions of psychology per say atheism is the denial of the existence of God. To which you or I may say is the the lack of belief But it can be argued in this way that atheism is a belief. Specifically the denial of god.

But when you say you are a unbeliever, because you are a free thinker. You change the playing field totally. And give them no legs to stand on.
To defining any belief you present has insufficient evidence to support the existence. You are not denying or rejecting. You are making the statement that you have not the evidence to say I'm denying the existence of anything. I'm denying you have evidence of anything you believe.

I know it's unnecessarily complicating a simple concept.
But it does shift the burden of proof back where it came from.
As I'm not denying or rejecting, I'm asking you to show me the evidence. I hope that makes sense.

Besides if you read into the definition of free thought, I think you will agree.
I am amazed, I find myself in agreement with A Myth.

Curse those wicked scientists for saving an enriching billions of lives! Why can't people follow the bible and cure diseases by sacrificing a bird and pouring it's blood on another bird? Oh your PPO won't cover that eh?

That's simply because they love to sin and don't want to be accountable for it. That's it in a nutshell.
