One hundred billion galaxies, each containing over one hundred billion stars... and yet, there are those who persist in maintaining that this tiny blue-green dot is the only repository of life in the universe. :? :o :)

Oh, I forgot..,
There are some things we just shouldn't question!!

BAD BAD theists!! They're like children who ask "why why why?" about everything!!!

We need "correcting"
Just ask Interbane. He's "wired" to know which questions are legit and which aren't!!
And he has evidence to prove it too!

How did you get "there are some things we just shouldn't question" from that? That's literally the opposite of what's implied.

Saying "God" is what ends the conversation with nothing of content added. To be sure, we may never have an answer to that question.

This has been an Ant post.
The views and opinions expressed in this post are those of the Ant and do not necessarily reflect the position of any of the people he claims to represent. They should not be construed as the opinions of The Atheists as they are based only on very limited, biased views of Ant. Assumptions made within the post are not reflective of the position of any of The Atheists.

Have you tried that? Looking for answers?
Or have you been content to be terrified of a thing you know nothing about?

Are you pushing your own short comings on us and safely hating them from a distance?

Is this the virtue of faith? To never change your mind: especially when you should?

Young Earth Creationists take offense at the idea that we have a common heritage with other animals. Why is being the descendant of a mud golem any better?

Confidence being an expectation built on past experience, evidence and extrapolation to the future. Faith being an expectation held in defiance of past experience and evidence.

Unless there's an army of ants in your hill, my comment was for you alone.

Another Neutered Thread.

I still remember the thrill when the deep field image was first published. I hope they repeat that experiment with the James Webb Space Telescope, much higher resolution coming in 2018.
