The real problem with Atheism.

Unread post

The real problem with Atheism is not so much their disbelief in God. The real problem is in their disbelief in any evidence for believing in God.The fact is any reasonable person would have to be delusional to not recognize some very basic things, such as, we know that tome, space, energy and matter work together in an intelligent way.Can we agree on that.

I think I'm going to take the "Dawkins" stance on this one. Although you can construct a correct English sentence, this fact does not mean the sentence deserves and answer. I could say, why are unicorns hollow? That appears to mean something, but it doesn't deserve an answer.

Phiend is right. Your post doesn't make much sense and it probably will be a waste of time trying to have a discussion with you.

Let's all be sure to not drive off anyone even if we find their positions to be X, Y or Z.

NickOh, I totally agree! I just don't want to drive away anyone that is stimulating discussion around here. We will always attempt to market to freethinkers. I actually emailed about 50 people from that site "Why Doesn't Gog Heal Amputees?" I can't help it if we pull theists in the process.

I apologize if my post was not something desirable here. I was e-mailed to join and discuss issues here. If no one wants to actually discuss anything that is your right.However, In what way do insults become refutations of anything?Energy, Matter, Space, Time and Intelligence are all Absolute and permanent while randomness is only temporary until a building up of order occurs. correct?
