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.

There is no more proof of the existence of an Abrahamic god(s) than there is of a teapot between Earth and Mars..

It's probably unwise for a religionist or 'person of faith' to invoke comparisons with fairy tales or collectively delusional behavior.
Ah, interesting, but what I find different between the tea pot and god, is that there could be a tea pot between earth and Mars, yet there be no evidence of one. It wouldn't have enough mass to effect the orbits of either planet to a degree we could measure, and there is so much space to search.
Tea pots aren't all powerful, ever present, and they don't answer our prayers. God is supposed to do those things. That's why I say that if god did exist, there would be evidence of his existence. But since there is none, we can conclude he does not exist.

Your... "something"?
I thought it was a "prime mover"?
Now it's just a "something"?
LOL!
I am STILL waiting for ONE (1) argument by you, in support of your... "something".
Just one.
I will bet you $1,000 that you will make a logical mistake within the first couple of sentences of your "argument".
I'll double that bet, that you won't post original material.
LOL!
You expect John to make an "argument"?

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.
This post of yours? Not an argument for either a "something" or a "prime mover".

So I get to keep my $2,000.

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!

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!

The Seventh Judicial Circuit of the Court of Appeals of the United States held that atheism is a religion. Therefore, it cannot be promoted by a public school

Why are you so delighted at the idea of knowledge of the facts being blocked?

Athiesm is not promoted in a public school you idiotic moron.

In any case? Tell the WHOLE story:

The court stated that they used what is called a legal fiction-- the legal fiction is that "atheism is a religion", so that an atheist innmate in prison gets equal treatment by the prison for his atheism.

Prior to that? Only Genuine Christards™ got special privileges from the equally Genuine Christard™ prison officials.

It was UNEQUAL treatment under the law. So the atheist prisoner sued, and won.

Legal fiction.

Look it up, you simpering baboon.

Nope.

I wrote a little script to repeat my point that he cannot make a single argument in support of his fantasy-delusion.

So far? My script has been accurate 100% of the time-- he never posted a single argument.

Bergoglio almost never granted media interviews, limiting himself to speeches from the pulpit, and was reluctant to contradict his critics, even when he knew their allegations against him were false, said Rubin.
Failure to confront Argentine dictatorship

That attitude was burnished as human rights activists tried to force him to answer uncomfortable questions about what church officials knew and did about the dictatorship's abuses after the 1976 coup.

Many Argentines remain angry over the church's acknowledged failure to openly confront a regime that was kidnapping and killing thousands of people as it sought to eliminate "subversive elements" in society. It's one reason why more than two-thirds of Argentines describe themselves as Catholic, but fewer than 10 per cent regularly attend mass.

Under Bergoglio's leadership, Argentina's bishops issued a collective apology in October 2012 for the church's failures to protect its flock. But the statement blamed the era's violence in roughly equal measure on both the junta and its enemies.
