Nope, but there are unanswered questions.

We once thought lightening was supernatural. But nope it happens when...
negative charged electrons in a cloud are attracted to positive charged protons in the ground, and enough of them accumulate in a spot to overcome the insulating resistance in the air between them.
Then they jump toward each other, sending a surge of electrons into the ground. We see the flash of energy and while this charge heats the air along their paths. Causing it to expand rapidly making the sound of thunder.

Your reference to matter and energy is a little skewed. It can not be created or destroyed in this universe that started with the BB. According to the science of our time. But then the creation of it may be in question due to the further expansion of this universe.
The observations and determinations by modern physicists is we are a seed that went through a sort of imbibition and then started expanding, "growing" if you wish, and getting ever more complex as it goes on.
Something planted the seed or laid the egg.
So you think..... a cosmic big bird, laid an egg?
Was it yellow?

however, your mental issues disallow you to realize that there is no supernatural, and no scientist has ever said we popped into existence from nothing....there is no such thing as "nothing".... matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed...basic law of science...

You need dust and particles in the air for the bolt to hit ground. Sets up a path of lesser resistance. Why it forks so much.

That is the most common lightning. Blue sky lightning does the opposite and is 10 times hotter. You can get hit 20 miles away from the storm. That can appeal to your supernatural instincts.

That was a conversion. A release of energy within mass. Unwinding atoms.

No-- but your constant belittling of me, your constant miss-use of my name, your constant telling me I'm sub-human?

That **is** hate-- and it's what you do.

Bob and many online Atheist don't get. If you hate God, you believe in God. It is so unfair on many levels they represent atheism to so many people.
I do not hate god, you idiot.

I do detest god-lovers, though.

Why?

The fictional god they imagine is always-- without fail-- a reflection of their worst attributes.

A monster, in short.

Your imaginary god is no different.

Overall I would agree with your statement, however my claim stands those that post online are most often God haters. Those that post gawd prove this point right away. With in my complete post you responded to, I claimed online Atheist do not represent all atheist. Even though when address on this they do claim they do, and I am making up forms of atheism. An atheist that does give it little to no thought, would never try to change your mind unless you directly requested it. That is an atheist. I would respect that person's debate that he or she has no faith. If you wish to structure society with your beliefs, you belong to a religion.
No Atheists HATE God, they hate the IDEA of God, they HATE the concept of religion. I hate the philosophy connected to God and religion like I hate the philosophy connected to the KKK, or any other hate groups.

Atheists don't hate, Theists hate. Atheists don't wish anyone condemned to eternal suffering for not believing as they do, this is what Theists do.

You can HATE a principal, an ideology, a mindset. I am convinced that no such entity as God exists, so it would be ridiculous for me to hate a non-existing thing. The IDEA of the God of the bible is what I hate. I hate what unsupported beliefs do to people. That a person whom I have never met, would wish me an eternity of suffering simply because I don't believe as they do, is what I hate. The fact that good honest and decent people feel they are no more than miserable sinners and must repent over the course of their lives is what I hate. But what I hate more, is that they infect their children with this horrid mindset. I hate that intelligent people feel their lives are totally worthless without the prospect of an after-life, and worse, claim without reservation, that anyone who does NOT ascribe to this, that their lives are also worthless and have no meaning.

Religion is what I HATE, not a fictitious God thing, I HATE what it does to people.

For some Atheist 5 out of the above 5 are true. Note in 1. The word especially not as you claim the word only would belong there.
None of the 5 apply to Atheism.

1.) THEIST..........someone who believed in God

1.) ATHEIST.........someone who due to the lack of evidence does NOT believe in God.

Thats it skippy, you can try as hard as you can to make Atheism more than this, but this is all it is. A LACK of belief in a superhuman controlling power due to lack of verifiable information.

But do continue to look stupid, I do enjoy watching you and other make complete fools out of yourselves.

"PURE" water is one of the best insulators around.

You have to have salts or conductive material in it to conduct. The reason you add salt for electrolysis of water. Clouds have dust particles and other things mixed in with them.

Horse poop.

"due to the lack of evidence " you will not find in any authoritative definition. That is something you added. Part of your fantasy of intellectualism and of the fad cult of neo-atheists.

That is a phrase that can be ascribed to an agnostic, but not an atheist.

"Religion has no interest in science" On that note you calling me a moron is a compliment. Step away from the Computer and go to the library. Watch some documentaries, that statement by itself shows you should not be talking about religion, science or history.

When it comes to respect you get what you give. You are so disrespectful to so many great people, I can't find your insults, insulting. I think you are a closet worshiper of Don Rickles. You should use his photo as your log on ID photo. It would remove the nickname Little Red Bobbing Hood.

You don't find pure water naturally, so that mud puddle is gonna get you and the tap water can get you fried.
