I have yet to see any evidence of John.

He fails the Turing Test every time.

The bible is a work of historical fiction. It takes real people and mixes them with fictional ones.
Well, yeah-- you are correct, but too subtle for the likes of that godbot.

:D

They don't do subtle-- it's all 100% or 0% with these people.

Okay, lets start with evidence according to YOU.

Begin-- prove your god is real, using evidence according to YOU.

Let's see how far you get, before you make a logical mistake...

You choose to ignore I've exposed you and your ahem evidentiary standard. You brought up the God you don't believe in again. You are smitten!
Do you have any evidence in this arena that meets your own criteria?
How do you measure the following possibilities: prime mover, always was, something from nothing. Show your work.
I'll wait for your dodge, or we can skip this dance and just debate your nothing vs my something. I'm sure you realize I at least have a case. You have no good options bigot.
How do you feel about your vote for Obama ensuring millions are hungry and unemployed?

*** You might have missed questions like this for the last 4/5 years lmao. Yep. You are that nuts. A forum about nothing. I don't debate nothing but by all means let's not stop now.****

Atheists don't do questions or evidence.

But.

NONE of your fictional disciples-- repeat--NONE-- lived to see the written gospels.

NONE.

That means? That ALL FOUR of your gospels were written by OTHER PEOPLE--NOT EYEWITNESSES.

So, there you go!

Zero eyewitnesses to your Jewsus-boy.
"Zero eyewitnesses to your Jewsus-boy"

LOL!

Thousand of eye-witnesses!

"Jesus' 12 disciples had just returned from a missionary journey he had sent them on. After they told him all they had done and taught, he took them with him in a boat on the Sea of Galilee to a remote place, for rest and prayer.

Great crowds of people in the area heard that Jesus was near. They ran to see him, bringing their sick friends and relatives. When the boat landed, Jesus saw all the men, women and children and had compassion on them. He taught them about the Kingdom of God and healed those who were sick.

Looking at the crowd, which numbered about 5,000 men, not counting women and children, Jesus asked his disciple Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?" (John 6:5, NIV) Jesus knew what he was going to do, but he asked Philip to test him. Philip replied that even eight months' wages would not be enough to give each person even one bite of bread.

Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, had more faith in Jesus. He brought forward a young boy who had five small loaves of barley bread and two small fish. Even so, Andrew wondered how that could help.

Jesus ordered the crowd to sit down in groups of fifty. He took the five loaves, looked up to heaven, gave thanks to God his Father, and passed them to his disciples to be distributed. He did the same with the two fish.

Everyone—men, women and children—ate as much as they wanted! Jesus miraculously multiplied the loaves and fishes so there was more than enough. Then he told his disciples to gather the leftovers so nothing was wasted. They collected enough to fill 12 baskets.

The crowd was so overwhelmed by this miracle that they understood Jesus was the prophet who had been promised. Knowing they would want to force him to become their king, Jesus fled from them."

<quoted text>Nope-- the only point you prove, is that you are just another godbot-assh()le.

Again: atheists HAVE NO BELIEF IN GODS.

That's it.

Your dictionary is incomplete-- all it has is your strawman/godbot lie as a "definition".

Why do you lie like this?

Oh! you're an assh()le... I nearly forgot...
Oh come now. Still stuck on that are you? Well you're wrong still.

Oh how was church this weekend?

Wikipedia
"Positive atheism (also called strong atheism and hard atheism) is the form of atheism that asserts that no deities exist.[1]Negative atheism (also called weak atheism and soft atheism) is any other type of atheism, wherein a person does not believe in the existence of any deities, but does not explicitly assert there to be none.[1][2][3]

The terms negative atheism and positive atheism were used by Antony Flew in 1976,[1] and appeared again in Michael Martin's writings in 1990.[4] However, usage of the strong/weak terminology has grown since the mid-1990s on the Internet, particularly due to the newsgroup alt.atheism.[better source needed][5]"

And guess what?

IT IS NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT HISTORICAL.

Yes-- I had to yell, because you are a proven assh9le, and you are also quite dense.

The bible is NOT historical--it's 100% fictional hearsay.

Or more accurately, gossip.

Pity you.
You're wrong but the. What else is new?

How's that peep hole show going?

It's the whole definition and it was copied straight out of my Merriam-Webster app.

You lose but then you always lose so nothing new there.

Look, it's important to be clear about the meanings of words you us, but there is a point at which being nit-picky about the definition of words is just a distraction.
Do you have any kind of point?
