That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else.
I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
The god thing, however, is just silly. He does not exist.
You know very well the oft used retort deserves to be oft used.
No, absense of evidence is not evidence of absense won't cut it. It's really the same thing. Likewise, absense of evidence is consistent with actual absense.
It is stupid for anyone to walk around spouting God does not exist. Do you have a clue why? BECAUSE THEY CANT KNOW THAT.

Nobody does. The very fact that there is even a concept of God is evidence their is one. Why would human beings who just evolved, evolve with a belief in a creator? I mean whats up with that? No it is STUPID to say God does not exist.
Not asking you to prove anything.
Just quit saying things that prove a lack of true knowledge
Everytime someone says God does not exist they deserve ti hear the oft used retort.
Have you ever noticed that the Bible presents no arguement for the existence of God. It just runs straight away from the beginning and never once considers that there would someday be doubt. Because it is that obvious to the uncluttered mind.
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
The thing is other people that don't share your convictions have drawn their own conclusions too. If people decide 'God doesn't exist,' their conviction is equal to or surpasses your conviction. A lack of God is a conclusion supported by many logical approaches. Faith in God is dependent on an emotional belief and requires all sorts of jiggery-pokery to allow for that existence.
evolution could lead to belief in a creator isn't proof of one
We think we understand them. And they think they understand us. We all think we understand everything. But clearly one side is way of track.
