Sounds good so far...What is the evidence of a prime mover?
Being that it is impossible to prove a negative (Nobody can prove something does not exist) the ball seems to be in your court.

It is only possible to prove what does exist.

How does a bigot measure the evidence for the following possibilities: prime mover, always was, something from nothing.
I don't have a narrative.

You are in luck! I am far from liberal. So, logic and rationality will work just fine with me.

Indeed I do have a standard of evidence that I hold people accountable to. For example...If someone tells me they are a police officer I would expect to see a badge and some I.D. along with issued equipment. I would also expect his name to be recognizable with a quick call to the local police dept.

Fair enough?

Something from nothing... BBT has been revised over the last few decades. The Universe sprang from a singularity which is not nothing. We are also coming to terms with the possibility of multiple universes.

Regardless, something from nothing is an everyday occurrence according to quantum mechanics.

Laurence Krauss has a new book out on just that subject.

This one is too easy.

Perhaps the big bang is what happens on the other side of a black hole.

The mathematics certainly fit.

A black hole (which is a singularity) eats the better part of a Universe...the mass becomes so immense that it actually tears through the fabric of space itself...and on the other end....BANG!

Everything you need to build a Universe... and recycled to boot!

The rest of your post was kind of gibberish to me...guess I needed to be there.

So...how did I do?

I thought you were here to answer the questions. Go back. Reread. Try again.

We will move on then. Although, it looks like you have nothing I haven't addressed before. This is the third time you have ignored the questions. One of them is a simple yes or no.

No evidence. No accountable position. Try not to skip steps would ya?

Are there any theists that DONT lie about god being real?
I do not know of any.

I'll be happy to prove to them that their imaginary God does not exist when they are finished presenting all of their evidence that it does exist.

Of course mostly I like to quote the Bible to prove it can not be trusted because it is unreliable and contradictory.

2 PETER 2:9 ("...and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished"--KJ, JB, NWT, LV),

versus

("...and to keep the unrighteous under punishment until the day of judgment"--RS, ML, LB, AS, BBE, NEB, NAB, TEV, NAS, NI). Versions can't agree on whether punishment exists until the day of judgment or begins on the Day of Judgment.

How many astrophysicsts does it take to find the questions right in front of him?
I have a question:

1 COR. 7:36 AS,("But if a man thinketh that he behaveth himself unseemly toward his virgin daughter...and if need so requireth, let him do what he will; he sinneth not; let them marry")

Why do Christians believe it is OK for a father to marry his virgin daughter just because he thinks about molesting her?

Debate nothing with your other personalities. I don't debate nothing Stumpy.*20
Make sure to skip the questions. Nobody realizes just how helpless you are LOL. Questions...a-a-a-a

Old Stump-Jonny will **never**,**ever** reply to this question.

He's been asked this 1000 times already over the years.

He never bothers a reply.

We suspect he either has no reply, or he dimly recognizes his reply constitutes ... magic.

Indeed, the ugly buybull is so chock full of misogyny, slavery, incest, rape, more incest, infanticide and even more heinous atrocity, that it could not possibly be from anything good.

And that it exists? Claiming to be the sole authority about god(s)?

Is proof there are **no** gods who are good and care about humanity.

The very existence of such an obviously evil book is proof of that.

What self-respecting god would suffer such as the fatally-flawed bible to even exist, sullying it's good name?

None would!

Only evil or indifferent gods would permit it to exist.

Indifferent gods are dismissed without further thought-- they may as well not exist anyhow.

Leaving evil gods-- who clearly don't exist. The slow but steady progress of human civilization is more than ample proof.

Your Jesus,(were he real) would say to you: "Satan, get thee behind me! I do not know you."

This is another dishonest statement fabricated from the disturbed mind of a deluded atheist.
Assertions and insults seem to be all you are capable of.

Ooooh. I wonder how you will respond.

It's the atheists that do the slandering.
I'll repost examples to prove it.
Show me one example of a post where I slandered your religion. Dollarsbill, it's been you who's been judging everyone else around here, Christian or non-Christian. I'm sure everyone is getting sick of your bullying. It's time to stop judging people before you get to know them.
