Hehe I like that list, very good. Thanks for posting.
Personally I think is is basically absurd to think life as complex, balanced, and delicate as it is, just accidentally happened when a random lighting bolt some how created a protein etc..

The chances of DNA to form so perfectly on its own is mathematically absurd. I mean get real. The earth is so balanced for life, the moon is just perfect distance and size, Jupiter works nicely as a big blocker for earth, just so many things are so right for us to live on earth.
Thing is, if science didn't accept evolution, the only other alternative is a creator. Well some folks say UFOs, but even aliens need a creator, so you just move it up another step is all.

I don't think that proving the Bible to be false coincides with disproving God.

Imho if there was a "god" it wouldn't have anything to do with todays organized idiots we call religions.

Religion is a pitfall of mankind.

Exactly why I think atheists are hypocritical idiots.


Not all atheists are hypocritical idiots some have chosen their path based upon reason; however, I tend to believe those kind are not posting on this forum. Many times I have laid out a challenge to the atheists, "refute this posting" and have received nothing but silence.

Defining God is a very simple yes/no question. Is God everything? Yes. Is God nothing? Yes. What determines the creation/existence of anything and everything? Time. Does time have a limit? Yes. Is time infinite? Yes. What is time? Nothing.

In some great big chalkboard some un-finite* size, the formula for the existence of God = .

A full stop.

Stupid period made me create it to explain nothing.

Hm, how do you logically reconcile the idea that everyone who flagged the thread is a "religious" person? Or are you claiming psychic abilities?


I claim psychic abilities! Except they only work on seeing the faith of users who flag. Pretty useless I know, but I got to use them on this occasion.

Nah, I based that statement on the premise that none of the original OP made sense. In order to have 40-50 flags from babble, the religious of this site flagged it because it made them feel good, even though it was preposterous. I could be wrong and I’ll accept that.

In your opinion.

While faith and belief structures give people strength and comfort, feeling the need to defend it is a sign of insecurity and nothing more.


That's right, you are truly wise. There is a lot of that on the atheist front right now.

Next up... top 10 signs you might be an alien space lobster.

Boy everyone's all hot and bothered over beliefs today. Man that guy who made the other 10 list, really got things riled up. I mean, really, why do we bother. However, it was a good rebuttal, so i S+F for the OP -> good job.

I have read hundreds of science books over the years (I'm old) and they all seem to agree that when a star collapses, it creates a black hole, but they dont actually have any proof that black holes exist...


.....
Time and chance are an absolute certainty time and chance dictate we will all die. Faith meanwhile asserts that you will go to a magical kingdom in the sky where you will be judged by an omnipotent being (who by the way has refused to give us empirical evidence that he exists, something a god should do) on weather or not you believed in him.



I dont believe in any culture or religion's creation myths but I have yet to understand the logic in evolution. I understand species change and I understand mutations, but I cant see one lower species evolving into a higher, more complex species. Genetic mutations occur all the time and at most provide little benefit, and sometimes detrimental, to the creature within the species. Even more extraordinarily rare than a rare mutation is a beneficial gene mutation that also gets passed on to the next generation.

I believe in evolution in that all things change, but Evolution and spontaneous generation in creation? I mean when you get right down to it, Evolution says life on planet Earth began after a Big (explosion) Bang.

If you do not want religion thrown in your face, then why are you here? I have lived on this planet many more years than probably any other person on this forum. Yet I can count on one hand, the number of times I was approached by a stranger advocating any religious view point. Two of those were by Hari Krishners in LAX. It seems that non-believers go to the religion section of a forum board and then complain about religion being forced upon them. It sort of reminds me of the man who entered an adult book store and then complained about all the pornography he was forced to see. (Metaphor coming - if you don't want to see porno, then don't go into the book store.)

I would argue that you are wrong. It may have not made sense to you but not everyone is you. I for one am not "religious" and I flagged the thread as it made sense to me. I watch the antics of both "sides" with more than a little laughter and frusteration in differing measure at differing times to be honest. Subjective opinion does not equal objective fact. Or do you now also assert that it is now somehow "magically" impossible for there to be such a thing as an atheist who takes his position as a result of unquestioned bias?

Yet here you are defending it.......
Or more accurately defending against the idea that some atheists can be just as unquestioning of their premise as those that are "religious".]

You really have to wonder about a group of people who name themselves by a negative of what they don't believe in.

A-theist

Really guys don't you have a better imagination than that?

Very true and very funny. S&F friend. I saw another thread on how to know you are an unquestioning Christian. I don't know which list came first, havent checked the other yet. Either way, very funny.

The reason things like this are so funny, is because there is often truth behind at least some of it.

Defending what? A persons right to believe what they wish?

Did you read my posts in this thread? or are you merely apt to drag everyone into the drivel that is the back and forth insanity of "My god is better than yours"


I didn't post in this thread to defend anyone, I came into this thread to condemn the stupidity shown here and the other list thread by members on both sides, and with any luck expose their minds to a less fettered way of thinking.



Fact is, I believe in something; but I can't define it, nor has any religion yet defined it. Buddhism has come closest. The point of my posts is that no one should care what others think.


edit:

Any "unquestioning" believer of "anything" is a fool. end of story.

As if the OP stated all atheists were thus, unquestioning. Which was not the case and had he said that I would be leveling the same accusations you do. But you act as if he or she had, infering at the very least a small amount of identification with the portion singled out and applying black and white *all or nothing* thinking that is bringing people into a uproar despite the fact it has not been stated as a black or white statement.


Any "unquestioning" believer of "anything" is a fool. end of story.


That I agree with. But to take pointing out that there exists those that are unquestioning that are part of the body of what we call atheism as an attack on atheism is also foolish.

My apology. But I do believe I made a valid point (if not you, then others). I have seen non-believers complain about having religion pushed upon them when they willingly put themselves into the position to be exposed to religious view points. They see any public representation of a religious view as being forced upon them. Yet they do not see public espousal of atheistic view points as forcing atheism. Again I make the point, it seems all right for the atheists to clump the Christians together as a bunch or morons, but it is not all right for the Christians to do the same for the atheists.

I gave my opinion to the thread, not a fact.

Would you mind telling me which of the 10 made sense to you? And how? Because I am not seeing the intellect.
