Where will we get Thinking? Put some thought into it. Your nothing was strange in 2009, its insane today.
I've exposed you and it losses you off. Go away or get used to it. A third choice is sticking to evidence and intellectual honesty. Tough job when you have neither.

You give your nothing entirely too much credit. You also skipped the questions again. Why lie Tick? I can go back to 2009 showing I won't debate nothing. If you have an accountable position of belief you could defend (like me) you would do it. It is your forum.

My accountable position I am willing to debate vs whatever it is that shall not be named LOL is a prime mover.

Now come back with nothing.

Remember I simply asked what you believed and exposed the evidentiary standard you hold others accountable to. You need to steer the narrative away from your nothing.

Get your nothing out of here!

Roman Catholics seem on the March in the News

Black Smoke From Conclave Signals No Pope on First Day

VATICAN CITY — It billowed, and it was black.
There was no mistaking the outcome this time. The cardinals voting for a pope on Tuesday came up with no winner on their first round of balloting, signaled by the black smoke that poured out of a jerry-rigged copper chimney on the roof of the Sistine Chapel.

Your forum Bob. Your nonclaim. I simply asked questions that exposed you.
What I believe shouldn't come into play with a nonclaim. Ah, you have an agenda though. Ok. Let's debate the evidences and reasons to believe in ???? vs my belief in a prime mover. Still thinking? I'll wait lmao.
Nothing to see here folks but bigots on parade.

BS, and you know it. Lying for nothing tsk, tsk. I asked a question in 2009 on page one that hasn't been answered in a relevant way. Just put up this so called answer.

I've asked if you have any evidence in this arena that meets your own criteria? Ignored.

I've asked how you would decide what is most or least likely of the following: always was, prime mover, something from nothing, or any other option. Show your work. Ignored.

Those have been asked dozens of times in the last few weeks alone.

Your accountable position of belief is? Yeah, you forgot it again.

Feign ignorance if you want as to the arena of discussion. I do need to reiterate what you have nonengaged in for years with every post.

Yeah, put up the post. I have been clear I don't debate nothing and expect an accountable position of belief.

Your turn for an evidence free retort.

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.

Who the heck are you to decide what is and isn't reasonable? Make up a reasonable origin without skipping steps. Is your illogical nothing reliant on something to have a voice? You don't believe in God.

However, I do enjoy exposing you so once again I will gladly debate the evidences and reasons I believe in a prime mover vs any other accountable position of belief.
Do you have one? Plenty of the smartest men of multiple disciplines have reasons/evidences they, as I believe in a prime mover. I'll wait for your forum to man up. It is your forum. One lone theist scares you to death LOL.

Fight hard for your nothing loons!

@woodtick- you must enjoy getting knocked around. You failed miserably. You also skipped the questions by the way. All atheists aren't liars, but this forum is close.

No really anyone's Jesus ...you seem possessive?

At one point, though, Dawkins did retreat from one of his previous comments. At Reason Rally 2012 — a national atheist event — he had encouraged atheists to “ridicule” Catholics. In hindsight, he confessed,“I think I did go too far,” though he claimed that he had not intended for ridicule to mean "name-calling"......

Flatbush Zombies and the Underachievers are two New York rap duos who make wiggy, expressive versions of the grimy ’90s rap they grew up on, and both of them have earned our Mixtape Of The Week designation in the past year — Flatbush Zombies for D.R.U.G.S. and, more recently, the Underachievers for Indigoism.

And today, both groups team up for a guttural banger called “No Religion.

Atheist Rap...... is this their own Vatican Conclave ?

<quoted text>Let's tell the WHOLE story, shall we?

The CONTEXT is EVERYTHING: evil dickheads like you, had FORCED prisoners to comply with your evil religious practice, by giving special meeting-priveledges to True Believers™ only.

An atheist sued the prison officials for equal treatment-- and won.

So the court considers a nice tidy LEGAL FICTION, that atheism was "religion" in order to treat prisoners who were NOT True Believers™ with equality as required by the law.

You DO know what a LEGAL FICTION is don't you?

Here's another one: corporations.

The LEGAL FICTION is that these are a person, granted certain rights under the law.

Of course, everyone knows corporations are NOT a person, but are a business comprised of buildings, property, assets, etc-- but not REALLY a person. That is a convenient LEGAL FICTION.

Just as calling "atheism" a "religion" is.

Are you REALLY this stupid, or did you need special stupid lessons?

Being a proponent of the extremely IDIOTIC idea of "intelligent design", he could be nothing less.

<quoted text>It isn't.

Atheism simply happens to correspond with...

.... reality.

Public schools are required to teach reality.

Coincidence?

Nope-- rationalism and atheism go hand-in-glove.

In direct contrast to religion-- which is just stupid.

As are you....

... coincidence?

Nope-- stupid and religion also go hand-in-glove.

Proof? Your Calvert idiot comes immediately to mind...
