Begging the OP on page 24 of an epic thread is just shy of disgraceful. The fact that the OP is still around to acknowledge your begging and personal jabs is more than generous.
Stop stalling and make a point.
What are the questions that atheists dont have the answer to!
Hmm how intelligent of you.
Also atheism is not just about Christianity but all god claims. But just the god claims nothing else! Coomba98
you don't trust observable and repeatable results from scientists because the tobacco and sugar companies paid a bunch of doctors and politicians to lie in the early 1900's?

The scientific method, what, the method that is
And looking to scientists for answers, really, you want me to believe a scientist, like those who said tobacco was fine for your health, that the sugar industry is healthy, global warming, big pharma, but hey, I should trust these scientists because? You do, every word, your holy men.
but you regularly misconstrue what the "science" says, showing beyond a reasonable doubt that you in fact do not understand the science. It does make sense when you read it and apply it to the world around us and what we can actually demonstrate. You don't understand evolution because you are not a biologist. It really is just as simple as that. It takes years of study to become a biologist. They give out phd's for this stuff because it is difficult to understand. It is however a fact that can easily be proven.
I think I will look at the evidence and make my own opinion, I actually trust myself above a scientist on some matters. Yes I am that smart
you are conflating atheists with science again. Why? I literally have said this about four times now. You are misconstruing what atheists are, and you don't even care because you won't even acknoledge that i keep saying this over and over.
Atheists don't have the answers I want because they don't have the science to back up their theory. You have your confirmation bias, I have mine
yes the scientific method. It is a thing. There is also the socratic method. It is a thing. Study them both for about a week each. Please.
Twist words, you don't understand what you are talking about,mscientific method? Really.
Now as for my attitude to atheism and atheists.
I look at fundamentalist atheists like you and shake my head, others...
i'm stunned you would say this as you are adament that atheists are blood thirsty killers. Why do you bring up the stalin, pol pot thing, and then say that atheists are more polite than your christian folks at church? Your argument is by-polar, one week you are for something, the next minute, it's the friggin devil.
I have many atheist friends who I am closer to than most christians. I see better values and moral consideration in many of those friends than people I know in church
I am ashamed to say of the majority of atheists I know compared to christians, the atheists are better people. Simple fact, even here on these boards to a degree
that is funny, because i see people offering you lots of links and polite discussion. You want to focus in on the guys who bring the convo to the gutter, because that is really what you want. You certainly don't come here to discuss the topics that are important.
As for answering questions, most seem infantile or unreasonable, just answered on Aks thread on the ark and dinosaurs. It wasn't the answer he wanted
The answers are always there, you just don't want to accept them.
So when you talk about the scientific method, talk about evolution in the same breath, stop take a deep breath and realise what you are saying is just a pure religious like faith that you hold in scientists, your holy men, your religious leaders, your gods
You have no idea what you just said. And the irony is that there is probably some evolutionary explanation for why there are people like you

Religion's answer to every question about God's behavior is that God is mysterious. That he's so intelligent, nothing he does can be measured by human reasoning.
It's like in the story of the "Emperor has no clothes". If you can't see his magnificent robes, it must be because you're not wise enough.
The only question Atheism (or science) can't answer is: where does the soul go when you die? And it kind of can..... just you wouldn't like its answer.
Thats very inaccurate
God is very clear
Just because you are blind doesnt mean the clothes are not there
God is love, love demands justice so God is justice.
You just dont like justice and how it is meted out
So you rail against the justice, everybody wants to escape justice and live according to their desire, sorry, it cant happen that way.

So this is a troll tread so you can feel good about yourself.
Thought so but a part of me thought you were serious.
What would Jesus say to you about your actions and conduct? He'd be ashamed you were his follower.
