Well you can start with placing your gratitude for existence to your mother. It is from her body that you are created and from a mother's breast that humanity as a class is fed to surviving infancy. Accepted science is constantly changing because of the ways in which we discover that the findings from the past have been effected by biases so in a new science timeline science would be very different because the biases that affect it would be different. It's important to note how much, to date, misogyny in particular has been repeatedly discovered to be the root of what turns out to be falsly accepted science. If it weren't for misogyny imagine where we would be scientifically now. It's important to note how religion and politics are bedfellows and from there how much politics and misogyny are bedfellows. This is what happens when an atheist man and a Catholic man have a conversation about science and religion. *yawn*

Faith is not a reliable path to truth (defined as believing something without evidence)... It is only invoked by theists when reasoning is no longer possible for any fictional claim. For Instance, two friends are talking and one says, "I have faith that my husband is cheating." The other could say, "I have faith that he isn't." Both claims cannot be true yet one must be. Therefore, it is demonstrable that faith doesn't care for reality, only expresses wants of individuals. I respect and love Stephen, I don't respect the religion however.

science does not contradict the bible in any way. BUT the bible talks about the spiritual realm, which is completely separate from the scientific realm,- it cannot be seen, heard, touched, smelt or tasted. But it can be felt. For we are all spiritual beings. God's love and power can be felt by us all, for it transcends time and space. Look up the congnitive theotetical model of the universe. Written by the worlds smartest man with 195 IQ, it proposes that 'Reality is a language that is talking to itself about itself'. This, my friend, is the word of God. The bible. The bible is truth and reality. It is in its own 'bubble' ,if you will. The universe, ultimate reality, is the word of God

+Jacob H 1) There is no evidence that there wasn't something "before" (not that the term really makes any sense) the big bang. The correct answer is "we don't know", not "therefore my preferred explanation is tenable". All you have here is an argument from incredulity. On what basis do you claim what can and can not occur as the result of a natural process? Your second point is a tautology. Natural Laws are descriptive, but prescriptive and we know they don't apply in all situations and we have no reason to think we won't find more. Newton's laws are still laws despite the fact the both relitivity and quantum mechanics prove them wrong. The same for God. All you have done is created a definition of a thing as being that which created another thing and therefore must be separate to it. Well done. So what? It's nice that you believe things about Adam and Eve. When You have some evidence for that, let me know. Let's not forget that the only teason you have a co dept of Adam and Eve or God is that you read an anonymous ironage book. Sorry, but the whole original sin and vacarious redemption by child sacrifice narative is nonsense. Again, the only reason you have a concept of this is because of a handful of anonymous and contradictory account that contain elements that are blatantly fabricated. "Kinds" do not exist in biology. But I think this is what you mean. evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/article/evograms_03 evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/article/evograms_06 www.nationalgeographic.com/science/phenomena/2013/02/07/meet-the-ancestor-of-every-human-bat-cat-whale-and-mouse/ The genesis definition makes no sense. Why are whales in the same "kind" as fish and bats in the same "kind" as birds when both bats and whales are carnivorous mammals? Your assertion that God created science is just an assertion. What we are actually talking about here is your concept of a god contradicting with what science tells us. "Suspends the earth on nothing" could imply something that could be like space. But it is a reasonable inference given what the author could observe and could also imply something that could be completely different. That's the point. It isn't evidence that the author had any clue about what space is or how it works. And this is meant to be the word of God? A book on space for a toddler has more detailed information on this than the bible and you don't have to cherry pick to avoid the description of a firmament separatimg the waters and the stars being tiny lights stuck to it that could fall to earth.

+Nicholas firstly, the big bang came from a singularity smaller than an atom, from which everything we know, time, space, matter and energy, came. To assert that there was anything before it is ludicrous to me, there is no proof for this whatsoever. The theory of multiverses has no proof at all, nor does the theory that the universe is pulsing in and out every 50 billion years. (That also doesn't make logical sense). Also, to suggest that all the complex stars, black holes, quasars, planets, nebulas, galaxies, solar systems etc came from a singularity by pure chance is more than ridiculous. I would question your sanity if you suggest this. Secondly, time and God, and i think this is the most important point. Do you agree that everything in this universe follows the laws of physics and science? Everything we touch, feel, smell, hear and see is a physical element that obeys the laws of space and time. We experience dimentions in which we can move around and age, that's it. Now if you assume God created the universe, then that means he is external of these dimentions, or living in a separate state of reality. I believe adam and eve originally lived in the same realm as God, but after they sinned, God decided to separate them from his realm, hence implemented time so that they might die. The incredible thing is he sent jesus so that we might be forgiven for all our wrong doing and reunited with him in is realm after death or when he returns. Next, macro evolution. If what you say is true, please give me an example of a transitional fossil that shows a change from one kind of animal to another. By kinds, i mean the types genesis talks about, the animals that crawl on the floor (insects), those that walk on the land, swim in the sea and fly in the sky. Oh, and humans. God does contradict science because he created science. Suspends the earth over nothing heavily implies space The king james version uses the word 'breadth' instead of depth. This shows 'depth' implies a deeper transcendence. There are quite clearly 4 dimentions or else the writer wouldn't have listed them all out.
Jacob H
Jacob H Kun oldin
+Nicholas amazing. In all that you said, you havent given me a single bit of proof. Any evidence for any of your claims? Your circular arguments and elabourate jargon don't impress me. Let me adress everything you said as briefly as i can.
Nicholas
Nicholas Kun oldin
+Jacob H No, it doesn't. The big bang theory doesn't start with there being nothing. And light only enters the universe once stars form. In the creation account stars don't appear until day 4, after the the Earth and even plants. Even then they are lights in the firmament and not the same as the sun, because the author didn't know that the sun was just a medium sized star. The amount of time doesn't make a difference to the order. Being "outside time" is a convenient claim, but what does that even mean? And how would you demonstrate that to be true? Macro ecolution is science. For a start it is simply the combined effect of micro evolutionary changes over time. There is no separate mechanism. Ot is onserved trough it's effects. Observation through effects is a perfectly valid method for observing phenomena within the scientific method. It is how we observe forces, objects like black holes and dark matter and the very small, like electrons. There is no such thing as a kind. The mere assertion that a god created anything contradicts science because the source is not proben to exist and there is no mechanism proposed other than magic. I'm sorry, but the claim that the bible accords with science is ridiculous. That is why the vast majority of scientists accept evolution and those that don't openly admit they rejected it a priori because of their existing religious belief. "Suspends the earth on nothing" simply proves the ignorance of the author. For a start, suspending on nothing isn't the absemce of a need for any kind of suspension and indicated that the author expexts a need for the earth to hang on something and simply cant see what it is hanging from. All you have there is a post hoc rationalisation of a vague comment that actually says nothing of the sort. Length, width, height and depth are not 4 separate dimensions. There are only 3 there. And the greeks knew all about this long before the bible was written. We had Pythagoras 2500 years ago. Sorry my friend, but you have a lot of learnng to do. Maybe you should look outside apologetic websites and get some actual facts?
Jacob H
Jacob H 2 kun oldin
+Nicholas here's the evidence to support my claim. The bible says 'God suspends the earth over nothing'. This was written well before anyone knew what space was or really what the earth looked like and how it is 'suspended' in space. This proves that this word has to be of divine influence or at least from an external source other than the human mind. Ephesians 3 verse 18: may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know that this love, which surpasses knowledge...' this clearly states the existence of 4 dimentions. Length, width, height and... depth. The KJV uses the word 'breadth' for the 4th dimention. This dimensional thinking was written thousands of years before anyone really knew what a dimention was, and certainly before knowing we exist in more than 3 dimentions.

Pure nonsense is the argument saying there is no God or no evidence for God. The very fact that life exists and that the universe and everything in it exists is proof of a maker/creator. Science is based on that which is observable. According to so called "scientists" there was a big bang from which everything began to occur and eventually life evolved from one form to the next by a process of mutation according to the theory of evolution. So everything just happened, without cause, purpose or design or a maker?! That's so unscientific and not true that it's ludicrous! Clearly it's observable that everything in this world has a purpose, a cause, and has been designed and made by someone and it also took a lot of energy in order to do that. No one in their right mind would say that their car, house or anything in this world just happened without cause, design, purpose or being made by someone. Yet for something as complex as the universe and life, scientists teach that everything just occurred over a very long time. It's not observable and therefore not true! Evolution is a lie. We do not see things making themselves and we do not see life evolving and getter better with time and there are no transitionary fossils to prove it either. What we do see is that everything has been designed and is made. From the science of archaeology and history we also see that every creature that lives was far bigger in the past and there was also a greater variety of life across the whole planet. That includes creatures and plant life. Therefore from a true scientific perspective there must have been a creator whom we refer to as God. Romans 1:19-20 AKJV 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has showed it to them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Paul Wevers That’s a common misconception about Jesus Christ’s teachings. A lot of other religions do speak about a works based doctrine, but it’s false. Jesus said He came for the sinners not the righteous. You got to admire that character, of really Jesus you want the prostitute over the pharisee. That’s bold. Unexpected. God is holy and can not be in the presence of sin. But He knew we were all going to screw up, and Jesus came along and even was bolder about sin, so it applied to everyone. You hate your brother, you commit murder in your heart. You tell a lie, steal, it’s a sin. He knew all had fallen short of the glory of God. And we needed a savior, in the Old Testament the only way to repent of sin was with a perfect sacrifice of an animal without blemish. Jesus came to be our sacrifice for sin, He was perfect and without sin, and freely offers people eternal life. Now that’s crazy, God are you sure you want to send your son be murdered on a cross, mocked, and disfigured for a sinner like me?! Do you know what I’ve done?! And the Bible is clear, for God so LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten son that whom so ever will believe in Him will have eternal life. That while we were still sinners Christ died for us. He knew I was died in my sins, without hope, the wages of sin is death, I was guilty until Jesus came and pardon my sin, carried it on His shoulders, and choose to transform my life. On that cross He said, it is finished. And rose from the died 3 days later. You heard me correctly...He was without pulse, stab wound in His side, no signs of life, and came back to declare victory over death. The Bible is clear, if you confess with you mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) Now in God’s eyes He doesn’t see my sin, because I’m justified by the blood of Jesus. And my sins died on that cross, to the glory of the one who thought humanity was worth dying to save, even when He knew He would be mocked, hated, and slandered by many people in every generation. And all He wanted and continues to want to do was save them. Could you imagine dying for someone and them saying I don’t want the life of eternity you can offer me? And people literally will say, I would rather go to hell. The lies of the enemy saying heavens boring and hell’s a lot of fun. I mean come on that has to sound absolutely backwards. People reject Christ so they want to carry their own sin...well then I’m sorry, but only two options exist. With Christ in heaven accepting Jesus to pay your debt, or pay it yourself and be without Christ in Hell. Oh, you want nothing to do with Jesus, well God prepared a place where you can have just that...God isn’t going to force you love Him, worship Him, and live for eternity in His presence. Now, I’m not foolish enough to pretend I’m not just like the unbelievers. They are all sinners, but so is everyone. The only difference is I’m forgiven and Jesus paid my debt on the cross, so now and all of eternity I am privileged enough to be granted the right to live with God forever. And no amount of words, songs, or praises can contain that utter undeserving devotion of a sinner who has been transformed from death to life. Now, one more thing a lot of religions get wrong. It’s not about being good enough, good people don’t go to heaven, but forgiven people do. For by grace you have been saved through faith not by works lest any should boost. (Ephesians 2:8-9). Now, that’s pretty cool. It’s not anything plus works, it’s Jesus alone has carried my debt. I do follow the Bible to my best ability, because I’ve been just too lost to pretend I don’t need Him. But my obedience to Christ is out of love, reverence, and my desire to glorify God. And when I sin, I have an advocate with the father to forgive me all unrighteousness (1 John 2:1). I hope that helps you understand the gospel. And if you humble yourself, repent of your sins, and choose to follow Christ you can be saved to. Don’t wait, the enemy will try and steal your escape from hell by discounting my words or make you prideful about your sin. The enemy comes only to kill and destroy, Christ came to give you life to the fullest. All the people who reads this, my intention is for you to understand I only speak out of great concern and love. I don’t want anyone to go to hell.

How about the God showing up in a tornado of fire (yeah, i have proof for this, look up in Saudi Arabia, where Mount Sinai is, there is a big burnt out spot or black spot round about 30 to 35 meters spread on the peak of the mountain and i even know you will start crying after this but still if you dont believe me search it on youtube and you'll get to know. There is a whole 24 mins vid)... How about the dividing of water... How about JESUS healing people with his Authority and Power..... Bible even prophesied you atheists (not only atheists but for this foolish and arrogant and ignorant generation of today) that in the last days men and women will be lovers of money, of themselves, they will be deceived by the love of this worldly material... God Have Closed your eyes, your minds and your ears.. you have eyes but you couldnt see, you have ears but you couldnt hear, you have minds but you couldnt understand....

deans0209 I don’t believe in these other things, because there is no power behind them. Also, I used to think unbelievers was so original... But what if your wrong, and would you want to believe in a limited God who couldn’t have done a number of amazing feet’s. Like isn’t the absolute absurdity of some stories in the Bible, actually show how great God is, that He is capable of far more than us. You ever think God laughs when He has an idea, and is just like 🎤 dropping for centuries. Jonah swallowed by a big fish, Eve created from Adams rib, man created from dust of the ground, and destroying a giant with a sling shot. And these are just some stories that are written about in the Bible: oh cancer He healed it, isis member finds Jesus, abortionist repents, dreams and visions done it. This is the continual power of the gospel, it comes with power so for one truly seeking God it isn’t extinguished easily. Now, I think sometimes unbelievers find themselves have an alternative view of God. And I’m curious whats your view of Him? Because if you look at what God has done in all of history, and still seek out to look at him as a monster isn’t that a complete misconception that could lead to your demise. Humor me, what if God truly loves you so much that He was willing to send his son to be beaten, mocked, and slandered for centuries all to save people who are filled with sin. Now God can’t be in the presence of sin, and how could He look upon my exorbitant amount of sin and still say I want her to follow me. I mean, say you have a child who does everything you tell them not to do, and walks away from you. And you sit back and watch them, go through hardship, pain, joys, and still try to call them to you...with deaf ears. They have made up their minds, but the love for them never stops. You ever consider God crying, and saying but I made them in my image. I wanted more to choose me, I only wanted the devil and demons to go to hell. This is heartbreaking. You ever think about the righteous anger of a God who could scream about everything you’ve decided is worthy of your attention like technology, celebrities, gossip, sports, discourse, anger, or sex. A God who knows you so intimately, and still finds himself wanting you to choose Him. But no you’re busy, and the media has stated it’s absurd to believe in Jesus, those Christians are just hypocrites. But God ultimately wanted true love, just as us humans crave love in its most purest form. And love isn’t real if it’s not freely given, so God allowed people to choose. Knowing that would mean rejection for him. He knew you in your mother’s womb. Imagine for minute God looking at you in your climate controlled amniotic sac, and Him writing on these surrounding waters your purpose so it absorbed into every pore. What would He write? Could you imagine Him starting to write to Give God Glory, and then looking at a baby and His heart knows you will not choose Him. The pain of that like nope they won’t bring me glory, they will reject me. That’s so sad. I can’t even contain it. If I who doesn’t know you cares for where you spend eternity, how much more does God who knows the number of hairs on your head care for you. He collects ever tear you ever cried. And a lot of unbelievers don’t ever even truly seek him. Never have and have decided they never will. Now, if one could truly reject that God, through not accepting Jesus.

CHRISTIAN RELIGION STOPS PEOPLE THINKING . THE VIRGIN BIRTH ? WORK OUT WHY IT HAS TO BE A VIRGIN BIRTH .IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SEX .
Nicholas
Nicholas 3 kun oldin
The hebrew text containing the "prophesy" uses the hebrew word for "young woman". The greek translation that the authors of the gospels had access to had mistranlated it to "virgin". Consequently, when they were writing (and trying to make thier story look like fulfilled prophesy) they included the detail of the virgin birth under the impression that they were demonstrating that a prophesy was fulfilled. But they were "fulfilling" a prophesy that was never actually made. It is evidence that the gospels are fraud.

Leah Diamond

Cindy Pedersen I think a better question is why does a infinite, powerful, all-knowing God care about us... Humor me, what if God truly loves you so much that He was willing to send his son to be beaten, mocked, and slandered for centuries all to save people who are filled with sin. Now God can’t be in the presence of sin, and how could He look upon my exorbitant amount of sin and still say I want her to follow me. I mean, say you have a child who does everything you tell them not to do, and walks away from you. And you sit back and watch them, go through hardship, pain, joys, and still try to call them to you...with deaf ears. They have made up their minds, but the love for them never stops. You ever consider God crying, and saying but I made them in my image. I wanted more to choose me, I only wanted the devil and demons to go to hell. This is heartbreaking. You ever think about the righteous anger of a God who could scream about everything you’ve decided is worthy of your attention like technology, celebrities, gossip, sports, discourse, anger, or sex. A God who knows you so intimately, and still finds himself wanting you to choose Him. But no you’re busy, and the media has stated it’s absurd to believe in Jesus, those Christians are just hypocrites. But God ultimately wanted true love, just as us humans crave love in its most purest form. And love isn’t real if it’s not freely given, so God allowed people to choose. Knowing that would mean rejection for him. He knew you in your mother’s womb. Imagine for minute God looking at you in your climate controlled amniotic sac, and Him writing on these surrounding waters your purpose so it absorbed into every pore. What would He write? Could you imagine Him starting to write to Give God Glory, and then looking at a baby and His heart knows you will not choose Him. The pain of that like nope they won’t bring me glory, they will reject me. That’s so sad. I can’t even contain it. If I who doesn’t know you cares for where you spend eternity, how much more does God who knows the number of hairs on your head care for you. He collects ever tear you ever cried. And a lot of unbelievers don’t ever even truly seek him. Never have and have decided they never will. Now, if one could truly reject that God, through not accepting Jesus. Than one would have to acknowledge separation from God is everything you wanted out of life, and in the end one got it. God won’t force you to love him; worship him; or spend eternity in his presence. It’s better to be good with God than to fight being misunderstood by a world that can never understand. Let be known I don’t worship man, I worship Jesus. Blessed are those who aren’t offended by me.

​+Gavin Morse I have no doubt that a person by the name of Jesus lived during the relevant timeframe in the relevant area of the world.. this is an interesting discussion.. however i don't think there is anything i'd say which would have you question your beliefs.. nor is it my desire.. i don't think there is anything you could say to make me "see the light" it is what it is.... one question though.. before we found Jesus about 2000 years ago.. how did humans find salvation previously?.. I think we've been around for something like 50,000+ years (i could be way off on that number of course).. Don't know if you watch the tv show the orville.. there was an episode in the first season i found interesting.. they encounter a world that experiences time at a much faster rate than we do.. by the end of the episode they encounter the people from the world and ask them about their religion.. they suggest they have moved beyond that.. Do you think human kind will ever see a time where we have "moved beyond religion"?

Solar Flare Acts 17:29-31 Therefore since we are God’s offspring, we should not think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone-an image made by human design and skill. In the past God overlooked such ignorance, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent. For he has set a day when he will judge the world with justice by the man he has appointed. He has given proof of this to everyone by raising him from the dead.” The Bible tells us that we should not believe in made up gods but the true one. It says that God has given proof of the true God by raising Jesus from the dead. Because of this, we can test whether or not the Christian God is true, by determining whether or not Jesus rose from the dead. It is my belief that Christianity is true because the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus is very strong. I don’t know whether or not you’ve done very much research on Christianity or other religions but if you haven’t, then I encourage you to do so. I think that you will find the truth.

Science is a method that iterates tona gradually more accurate picture of the universe. The fact that the position changes proves it is working. That is the difference between science and a scientific discovery. Take the shape of the earth. One people tgought it was flat. Then we worked out it was a sphere. Then someone worked out it was an oblate spheroid. Was the person who thought it was a sphere as wrong as the person who thought it was flat? Should You not have trusted the one who said it was a sphere at the time because he was wrong and taken both claims as equal? Do you see how ridiculous your argument is?

By default Well if you’ve never heard the gospel message, I’ll leave it below... Jesus said He came for the sinners not the righteous. You got to admire that character, of really Jesus you want the prostitute over the pharisee. That’s bold. Unexpected. God is holy and can not be in the presence of sin. But He knew we were all going to screw up, and Jesus came along and even was bolder about sin, so it applied to everyone. You hate your brother, you commit murder in your heart. You tell a lie, steal, it’s a sin. He knew all had fallen short of the glory of God. And we needed a savior, in the Old Testament the only way to repent of sin was with a perfect sacrifice of an animal without blemish. Jesus came to be our sacrifice for sin, He was perfect and without sin, and freely offers people eternal life. Now that’s crazy, God are you sure you want to send your son be murdered on a cross, mocked, and disfigured for a sinner like me?! Do you know what I’ve done?! And the Bible is clear, for God so LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten son that whom so ever will believe in Him will have eternal life. That while we were still sinners Christ died for us. He knew I was died in my sins, without hope, the wages of sin is death, I was guilty until Jesus came and pardon my sin, carried it on His shoulders, and choose to transform my life. On that cross He said, it is finished. And rose from the died 3 days later. You heard me correctly...He was without pulse, stab wound in His side, no signs of life, and came back to declare victory over death. The Bible is clear, if you confess with you mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) Now in God’s eyes He doesn’t see my sin, because I’m justified by the blood of Jesus. And my sins died on that cross, to the glory of the one who thought humanity was worth dying to save, even when He knew He would be mocked, hated, and slandered by many people in every generation. And all He wanted and continues to want to do was save them. Could you imagine dying for someone and them saying I don’t want the life of eternity you can offer me? And people literally will say, I would rather go to hell. The lies of the enemy saying heavens boring and hell’s a lot of fun. I mean come on that has to sound absolutely backwards. People reject Christ so they want to carry their own sin...well then I’m sorry, but only two options exist. With Christ in heaven accepting Jesus to pay your debt, or pay it yourself and be without Christ in Hell. Oh, you want nothing to do with Jesus, well God prepared a place where you can have just that...God isn’t going to force you love Him, worship Him, and live for eternity in His presence. Now, I’m not foolish enough to pretend I’m not just like the unbelievers. They are all sinners, but so is everyone. The only difference is I’m forgiven and Jesus paid my debt on the cross, so now and all of eternity I am privileged enough to be granted the right to live with God forever. And no amount of words, songs, or praises can contain that utter undeserving devotion of a sinner who has been transformed from death to life. Now, one more thing a lot of religions get wrong. It’s not about being good enough, good people don’t go to heaven, but forgiven people do. For by grace you have been saved through faith not by works lest any should boost. (Ephesians 2:8-9). Now, that’s pretty cool. It’s not anything plus works, it’s Jesus alone has carried my debt. I do follow the Bible to my best ability, because I’ve been just too lost to pretend I don’t need Him. But my obedience to Christ is out of love, reverence, and my desire to glorify God. And when I sin, I have an advocate with the father to forgive me all unrighteousness (1 John 2:1). I hope that helps you understand the gospel. And if you humble yourself, repent of your sins, and choose to follow Christ you can be saved to. Don’t wait, the enemy will try and steal your escape from hell by discounting my words or make you prideful about your sin. The enemy comes only to kill and destroy, Christ came to give you life to the fullest.

It takes wisdom and courage to speak out about what you understand without sounding preachy or defensive. One does not need to push one's ideals or coerce another that they are wrong. True power expressed through thoughts and concepts is essentially self evident. Ricky's remark about science books is a perfect example of this. He illustrates his point in a simple and concrete manner that even a child can understand.

You refer to what appears to be a vague, unfalsifiable god, which is fine, you can define it how you want. The point is that an unfalsifiable diestic god is intellectually redundent as it is indistinguishable from a thing that doesn't exist. Why use the label god at all and why day it is a good idea?

I like what he said about science. Since it's based on facts surrounding the universe it would come about the same way. But I'm agnostic, because there is too much unknown that I can't rule out a God of some kind. I think saying you're atheist means you have to state that someone else has to prove a god exists, but that doesn't prove a god doesn't exist if they don't prove it. It just means they can't prove it. So then to say I believe there is no god because I see no evidence, well the whole universe existing is evidence that some how the universe came to exist, we don't know how, so we can't rule out a god, we also don't know if the universe some how came to exist and then became self aware and acted on it's self... there is a lot we don't know, so to say I don't believe in God isn't correct. I don't know. I don't pretend to know there defiantly isn't a God or is a God, because there is too much that indicates to me that the possibility of a God is possible. So to then make an additional claim based on the knowledge I know would mean I'm guessing. I just simply state I'm agnostic, and until more is known about the universe. I will not decide either way. So I'm not atheist. As I think God is a possibility, but I'm not religious as I also think God not existing is a possibility, and I don't have enough knowledge to state that the universe defiantly came to exist on it's own or that the universe didn't become self aware in some way. So I simply state I'm agnostic, till science either finds evidence of God, or evidence to show how the universe came to exist. Science isn't against religion, it's just a tool which we use to work out how the universe works. :)

+Leah Diamond I'm more worried about animals suffering in life. Then my own suffering in death. If I end up suffering then so be it. But right now the choices you make cause animals to suffer when they don't need to. I think if there is some God then he can communicate with me, and let me know what he thinks of my actions directly by projecting his existence in to my minds eye. I'm here till I die, if he has a problem with my actions and this will affect me later. The only concern I have with a God, is if a God exists, how would that God existing affect the universe and nature of everything. I don't philosophies and think if a God does exist, what does a God think I should do or wonder about what a God might want me to do. Simply because I think a God that is so powerful would have very little concern over me or even humans in general when it comes to day to day life. In the same way I don't worry about how ants are getting on building an ant hill, it's interesting, but I'm not writing out messages or getting the ants to do what I want. So my point is I don't think I'm so important that a God would care that much about me. I just wonder about how a God possibly existing would affect the world. If it turns out a God exists and cares about me when I'm dead, I will simply say I did what I thought was right. With the very limited information I had. But I highly doubt a God would worry about me.

Also, where and when did Jesus ever say to not eat meat? Because I missed it, also do you think my eating meat discounts me from something important for my soul to go to heaven? Because it’s by my belief in Jesus through faith and the blood shed on the cross that I’m justified to enter heaven. I’m forgiven, period, there is no condemnation in Christ.

You hate your brother, you commit murder in your heart. You tell a lie, steal, it’s a sin. He knew all had fallen short of the glory of God. And we needed a savior, in the Old Testament the only way to repent of sin was with a perfect sacrifice of an animal without blemish. Jesus came to be our sacrifice for sin, He was perfect and without sin, and freely offers people eternal life. Now that’s crazy, God are you sure you want to send your son be murdered on a cross, mocked, and disfigured for a sinner like me?! Do you know what I’ve done?! And the Bible is clear, for God so LOVED the world that He gave His only begotten son that whom so ever will believe in Him will have eternal life. That while we were still sinners Christ died for us. He knew I was died in my sins, without hope, the wages of sin is death, I was guilty until Jesus came and pardon my sin, carried it on His shoulders, and choose to transform my life. On that cross He said, it is finished. And rose from the died 3 days later. You heard me correctly...He was without pulse, stab wound in His side, no signs of life, and came back to declare victory over death. The Bible is clear, if you confess with you mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) Now in God’s eyes He doesn’t see my sin, because I’m justified by the blood of Jesus. And my sins died on that cross, to the glory of the one who thought humanity was worth dying to save, even when He knew He would be mocked, hated, and slandered by many people in every generation. And all He wanted and continues to want to do was save them. Could you imagine dying for someone and them saying I don’t want the life of eternity you can offer me? And people literally will say, I would rather go to hell. The lies of the enemy saying heavens boring and hell’s a lot of fun. I mean come on that has to sound absolutely backwards. People reject Christ so they want to carry their own sin...well then I’m sorry, but only two options exist. With Christ in heaven accepting Jesus to pay your debt, or pay it yourself and be without Christ in Hell. Oh, you want nothing to do with Jesus, well God prepared a place where you can have just that...God isn’t going to force you love Him, worship Him, and live for eternity in His presence. Now, I’m not foolish enough to pretend I’m not just like the unbelievers. They are all sinners, but so is everyone. The only difference is I’m forgiven and Jesus paid my debt on the cross, so now and all of eternity I am privileged enough to be granted the right to live with God forever. And no amount of words, songs, or praises can contain that utter undeserving devotion of a sinner who has been transformed from death to life. Now, one more thing a lot of religions get wrong. It’s not about being good enough, good people don’t go to heaven, but forgiven people do. For by grace you have been saved through faith not by works lest any should boost. (Ephesians 2:8-9). Now, that’s pretty cool. It’s not anything plus works, it’s Jesus alone has carried my debt. I do follow the Bible to my best ability, because I’ve been just too lost to pretend I don’t need Him. But my obedience to Christ is out of love, reverence, and my desire to glorify God. And when I sin, I have an advocate with the father to forgive me all unrighteousness (1 John 2:1). I hope that helps you understand the gospel. And if you humble yourself, repent of your sins, and choose to follow Christ you can be saved to. Don’t wait, the enemy will try and steal your escape from hell by discounting my words or make you prideful about your sin. The enemy comes only to kill and destroy, Christ came to give you life to the fullest.

+Nicholas My point is if we don't know how the universe exists, then we can't rule out the possibility of something spiritual or a God or what ever you want to call it, something with a consciousness that is affecting the universe and our world intentionally. We can't rule it out. If we can't rule this out, we can only say we believe there is no God, but actually it isn't known. So it would be a belief to say there is no God. Here atheists then claim, unless you prove a God exists, I'm going to state that no God exists. But lack of evidence isn't evidence. If we did the same thing in a large open field, we said I can't see any towers or satellites so it's probable there is no radio waves round here. I can't see it so most likely this is true. Now with radio waves we can do tests. We know how to do that. But since we're still uncertain a lot about the nature of the universe on a lot of levels we can't say just because it seems like there is no God, that there is no God, that is a belief. Unless we can prove all aspects of the nature of the universe or multiverse, we can't rule this out. Now you might say well there is little evidence. Well there is so much unknown, that we can't say with certainty that there is little evidence. Does that make sense? Does my point make sense? I'm saying that because we have such a limited understanding of the universe we shouldn't make claims, as these would be based on beliefs, not based on evidence. Educated guesses are still beliefs based on the knowledge we have. So what I'm saying is that for me, there isn't enough known about the nature of the universe for me to make a claim about God. I also understand some areas of quantum mechanics like quantum entanglement, which means instantly knowing a position. Which is the same as a binary computer with 1 and 0. So if something could know these positions from a distance they could get knowledge from a distance instantly. So because I understand physics and I understand what isn't known about the universe, I'm not going to jump to conclusions. I will wait for more evidence, about either the universe or simply how everyone exists, or proof of a God. Right now for me their is just too many unknowns. This is why I'm agnostic. Ricky is atheist and he believes that based on all the evidence about the world he knows, none of this shows a God. So that is what he believes based on what he can know. He might correct me here and say I'm in a position of not believing in Gods. But I would say you're in a position of believing there is no God based on what you know. So I'm saying there is far too much unknown to state that is true, and I don't wish to make a claim of no God or a God without further understanding the nature of the universe. So to me there is too much unknown to come to a belief or rule out any God at all, I don't know, hence agnostic. Not atheist.

No. It is "I don't have sufficient evidence to accept the claim that a god exists, therefore I do not believe that a god exists". You are the one strawmanning by asserting that the atheist position is that there is NO god. It isn't. It is the position that there is insufficient reason to believe that there IS a god. So no argument from ignorance and no strawman.

Why can't Yahweh forgive Lucifer, if He's supposed to capable of ANY thing; and then there would be no hell? Do you think that your deity made tapeworms? If you think Lucifer made them; and how does that work, since he was just an angel; and Yahweh is supposed to have infinitely more power than him. How about HIV? Did your god make that? Or Ebola, or tuberculosis, or genital warts? Or fatal birth defects? How about all of the kids in cancer wards? What are they supposed to "grateful" about? Colbert is a raving f!@#ing idiot.

I know religious believers are probably going to hate me for this but random thought: God created Man in 'his' exact image Man can sin The Bible promotes sin in places God can therefore sin if we are made in his own image Therefore, God and Satan are the same beings Another random thought... If there is life after death (and I'm not saying there is nor that I believe there is because I don't) But for the sake of it, God and whatever else exists... what happens before we are human? Something has to happen before right? If something should happen afterwards...? P.s. All religions are atheists because each religion discredits any other type of religion. In my opinion and I will strongly press on the fact I said my opinion, atheists just cut out all the unnecessary crap and state that we have made it all up out of fear of death, the fear of having no purpose and the fear of unknown.

I feel sorry for those that believe this fiction. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, nothing is known about Jesus's first 30 years of life; he was illiterate; he never wrote a single word. When died, there were than 30 followers. After Jesus died, Peter or Paul imagined a big figure of Jesus walking on water after catching no fish; they then figure that if they promised that Jesus was about to return and the world to end, the would get followers; the same scheme continues today for simple minded to dish out l0% of their hard earned wages. All that was written that Jesus may have said or human saved was written 60 years after his death. If you still believe in the fictional stories of Adam and Eve, Noah's Ark and that women come from a man's rib, it makes one think that you are very simple minded since we are now in the era of Quantum Physics. There are over 34,000 "Christian" religions and they all read the Bible differently, even the KKK. Experts believe that Moses and Abraham never existed and that Jesus was perhaps a myth. There was no crucifixion. He did not rise to the heavens just because they could not find his body; the casket was probably recycle and his body was just piled up on top of others. We like to argue about religion because there are no facts, as you claim. I feel sorry for the simply folks who are fleeced by their paying l0% of their hard earned wages-shame on you. Why don't you get a real job (pastors) and pray for free. God has no avarice; he created the universe; He can create diamonds. God does not separate families and He is all inclusive of Christians, Jews… Muslims and Hindus. How about Lot being made drunk by his daughters to rape him and become “pregnant by father.” Isn’t it rubbish! Be kind and stop charging a tithe for words that the wind carries nowhere. How about Abraham almost putting his son to the fire (child abuse) until “god” stopped him? We must fear many Christians. George Bush Christians are dangerous. He lied to our nation to invade Iraq for its oil and to kill Muslims, like a million, though the Bible reads, “you shall not lie; you shall not kill” except to the sound of a trumpet. The puritans (“Christians”) on one hand held a Bible while on the other a rifle to exterminate the first Americans (genocide). God is God. Religion is rubbish fiction that only little minds can accept as true. It is driven by that tithe. Please leave women alone regarding their reproductive right; please do not attack the natural-homosexuality. It has been determined that over 90% of men don’t seem to find their wives’ vagina (they love to commit sodomy). To argue against this is to lie. We must fear a man holding a Bible; it is only literature; God did not write it.

Ricky had pretty much no arguments for God not existing. From what I Saw he had 4 main arguments. his first was that there is no proof. he should research the cosmological arguments and stuff and look into philosophy and people like William Lane Craig. His second was that he Believes in 1 less god, but that doesn't mean there is no god it just means that 2999 are wrong. or that they believe it slightly differently, or that they choose to live differently. they (Stephen and Ricky) could both be wrong but then there would still be a God. His third argument was that science has proved lots of other things and it sounded like he was saying we should trust them on this but that is unreasonable, just because it proved other things it doesn't mean this is right as well. His last argument was that if you were to remove all religious texts then they would never return but if you were to move all science it would. that is not entirely true, most likely the Religious things would return as that people would get similar ideas, humans are still humans and they would believe the same things even if it isn't the exact same. If I misunderstood anything please let me know, as I will happily clarify the stuff I got wrong.

+Nicholas 1) "shifting the burden of proof" the burden of proof is carried by those who have a claim to knowledge. so if he asserts "there is no god" that is a claim to knowledge. therefore, the assertion that there is no god has a burden of proof. so the atheist has to provide arguments for why there is no god I.e. logical contradictions such as the omnipotence paradox. 2) the Null hypothesis - there is a difference between saying "I believe there is no God" which is what an atheist would say and saying "you do not believe there is a God" which is what an agnostic would say. if you adopt the second statement then you must also agree with the statement "I do not believe that there is no god" which would make you an agnostic. 3) William Lane Craig - how is he a hack? how is he nothing? what type of nothing? how is his Kalam ridiculous? 4) 3000 gods - (badly worded on your part) - How is it hypocritical of theists to disbelieve people with opposing beliefs? surely then Atheists are also hypocritical? could you clarify, please? it is not an admission that people make gods up, as you said, it could be simply an observation that people interpret the world and the supernatural in many different ways. it actually shows that people have a proclivity to believe in a supernatural deity. 5) science argument - can you justify your premise that the method of logic and deductive reasoning is "demonstrably unreliable"? the burden of proof is on you now. also, your second point disqualifies your first point as the scientific method uses logic. 6) religion returning - the first thing you say basically proves religion as if the fundamental concepts returned to Christianity then it shows that it isn't some random guy making it up 2000 years ago, but rather a fundamental human condition to have a high affinity to believing in God. 7) accusation is it would be different - from a Christian perspective, obviously if you remove any knowledge of Jesus and his life you could not simply make it up which actually supports Christianity because it was not made up but actually occurred. comparing the scriptures to science is fallacious as they are completely different things and there would still be things like the creation, design, and morality of the universe. so the argument is still valid. 8) name an example of where knowledge of something has been completely lost and explain how it was rediscovered without any traces of it. 9) the fact that people interpret religious meanings in many ways does not disprove religion but rather that religion is complex. for example, because there have been many models proposed for the beginning of the universe it does not mean that therefore the universe didn't begin to exist. Does that help?
Nicholas

Just about all of it. Firstly he doesn't need an argument for god not existing. That's a shifting of the burden of proof. All he has to do is adopt the null hypothisis. WLC has nothing. He's pretty much a hack. His Kalam is ridiculous. I can go through why if you like? The 3000 gods isn't an argument against the existence of God. It is a demonstration of the hypocracy of the incredulity of theists at people rejecting their god and the securing of the admission from the theist that prople make gods up. His third argument is that science (which is a method for gaining understanding) is reliable because it almost exclusively produces demonstrably relaible results. And this is true. The claim is that if you method is reliable you tend to get reliable results. If your method is demonstrably unreliable, such as those used to justify religion, you are not justified in having confidence in the conclusions. And this is true. The third argument is nkt that the broader concept of religion wouldn't return, or even that many of the main concepts wouldnct return. We would expert that if they are invented by humans because they would again be inventes by humans. The accusation is that the details wouldn't be the same. That is not the case for science. Gravity is still going to be 9.8m/s/s. A hydrogen atom is going to have the same number of electrons. Absolute zero is still going to be discovered to be -273. The age of the universe is still going to be 13.8 billion years etc etc for the billions of details we already know. The evidence for this is that we have found exaples of where knowledge has be lost and rediscovered. Also the evidence that theism continues to fragment. There are 1000s of types of christianity alone. Does that help?
