Get your google on! Bloodletting (now called phlebotomy) is not just for hemochromatosis, doctors and researchers are examining phlebotomy as an aid in combating heart disease, high blood pressure, and pulmonary edema. The lesson for medical science is a simple one, there is much more that the scientific community doesn't understand than there is that it does understand.

When will theists stop using what science doesn't know as an excuse for selling what religion lies about?

Ummm, except that they were bloodletting for reasons that we know were false.

it may be funny that we now know it may help for some things, but they were not onto anything mystical or magical, they were killing more people than they were helping because they were acting upon myths...

Does the fact we have a "Thor's Day" each week mean Thor is real?

Why the break in years at the same point that BC Before Christ and AD the year of our Lord broke the year down?

Why are your dates still centered around the life of Christ?

You make the presupposition that there is no evidence without admitting you do not have the scientifically measurable evidence to support your position of nothing. You have placed limits on what may be limitless. You have placed limits where they need not be. Thus far I have seen no evidence provided by an atheist that would support what is disingenuously called natural mechanisms only. If you think there isn't evidence of design you would be wrong. Admittedly, this can not be proven using your constricting criteria, but nothing in this arena has been proven using this standard. You know this by now. That is why it is so frustrating to the forum when it's pointed out. Judging by the ever-growing anecdotal evidence of this forum overwhelmingly congregated by atheists, atheism is something else entirely. There is a large contingent of antitheists, a portion devoted to secular humanism, and some interplay with other assorted isms. The common denominator is that every single one of these positions is lacking in evidence. The notion that man is the be all end all is flawed in my opinion. Of course you wish to shirk any burden of proof. That's transparent and shows a weak position. Atheism has been co-opted by the new atheist. Much more vocal and commited to breaking down the populace writ large that actually do have a position. I've given more than enough opportunity for atheists to engage in debate that is not circular. The brilliance and weakness of atheism is no accountability. That's why it's not challenging to debate this topic with you loons. Apologies to the few that aren't driven by more than uncertainty. When Reagan debated Gorbachev on our nuclear arsenals each man had a position. If there was a political debate the political atheist would attack the other position and not have to be responsible for one himself. If one football team was atheist and the other was not they would have the ball on offense the whole game. Fumble, and the ball would be returned. This is what you ask for here, but is unacceptable in every other topic. I'm conservative btw. A rational freethinker. I'm sure you are a centrist LOL. What's the mushy middle thought on government size, abortion, tax rates?
If there isn't a position don't bother responding. How is the fence DREW, Curious, Mikey,,,,? You got the post wedged good and deep yet? Stump an antitheist! Ask it what it believes. Still going strong 65,120 plus posts in.
Still nothing about atheism in the atheist forum. No position, no post #. Lies, spin, ad hominem, and boredom.
Waiting for an example of what passes the cut for evidence from atheists. Cowards!
Note to lurkers:
John refuses to debate. He just posts the same 3 or 4 posts over and over.
He's been asked many times to present evidence for god, but he doesn't.
He lies and says we haven't presented accountable positions.
I've posted mine many times, he won't deal with it.
1. If god exists, there is evidence of his existence.
2. There is no evidence of god's existence.
3. There is no god.

Point 1 is very important, but John won't even discus it. There are many things that could exist, yet we have no evidence of their existence. There could be life on other planets. But since god is supposed to be all powerful, all knowing, truthful and involved in our lives, surely there would be lots of evidence of his existence. I even feel there would be so much evidence, we wouldn't be having a debate on the topic.

This is very simple, it's our culture. There are other cultures that have calendars that have nothing to do with the figure of Jesus. Our calendar also revolves around other "gods". Look at the names of our weekdays and months.

Bloodletting survived for thousands of years precisely because it produced positive results. If a majority of those treated with bloodletting died, its practictioners would have been out of business very quickly.
