      Not all Christians are terrorists, of course, just like not all Muslims (and Hindus!) are terrorists. Many of them are good people.
      But the bible and the Quran both provide ample grounds and verses to justify religious terrorism to devout believers. Both tell their followers to kill non believers

    • @jacquesvol just like the Truman doctrine annexed and basically said the same about any communists under the righteous banner of Uncle Sam? What about the lie of the golf of Tonkin our government told us to get us into Vietnam? How many lives did that take? Just like crazed atheists have shot up churches? If you're going to act like a whole group is responsible and have to answer to those who take things too far then all of us are deserving to die. Humanity might as well off itself as that darkness is in everyone of every group and people under every banner and coalition have given into that evil.

    • I did my time in university and it was a top renown professor who made a presentation talking about evolution being a patchwork theory at best given the assumptions based around small evidence, either way I could show you my degree and you wouldn't believe it, you're too just.

      I was never stalking you, one I don't care, two I made observation given how nearly every time I've seen you lost there's a big argument where you go to name calling and playing the 'educated final say' and then try to close with a self just statement belittling opposition, part of my major was in argumentive evaluation-which yours is a cyclical type and repetitive and one that resorts 'either or' fallacies and playing the final high ground.

    • The point of faith is to seek God, he is not there to play daycare, he is there for us to find him and be rewarded, if angels came to our door for a census it wouldn't even be a question of course all would believe, however it's harder than that, you have to seek him and when you do you'll find him, look around you, it always seems to be those who seek God really do gleam more from it, science can't explain it and it'll piss off some like @Minxxie as it's not taught in a university but science does not have any real answers to the important questions anyway.

      You may have also just talked to someone who believed in God in name only and didn't really seek him.

  • No, I don't. And I don't think you understand the burden-of-proof argument. The burden of proof is not on atheists but on YOU (and other religious people) to bring forth evidence that he/she/it/they exist. This principle occurs everywhere you look, whether it's in sciences or in law. When you're suspected to have committed a murder, it's the courts job to prove that you're guilty (because THEY are making a claim). It's not your job to prove your innocence. If a pharmaceutical company wants to bring a new drug on the market, it's the company's job to bring forth evidence that the drug actually works because THEY are claiming that it does. It's not the job of the government or scientists or even the consumers to prove the drug's potential (or lack of potential). When Charles Darwin or Albert Einstein published their theories, it was not the job of other scientists to disprove them and explain why they're wrong. It was Einstein's and Darwin's job to prove that they themselves were right.
    The default-position is ALWAYS "not guilty" and whoever makes a claim has to prove that something or somebody is in fact guilty. In the case of god, it is religious people's job to prove that god is "guilty of existing". As long as you cannot prove that, we can savely assume him being "not guilty of existing" or in other words, not existing.

    • You don't understand the point of faith, God is in our lives on a personal scale, not to control the world and change it or perfect it in this life, the proof is in the bible and in the world around us, when you read the bible you get more of a grasp, you'll probably discount this right away as you are set in your ways and not open to even considering but the point of faith is to choose to believe despite 100% proof, if God sent an angel to your door tonight you'd believe, nearly anyone would, but that wouldn't be faith then would it? God doesn't come that way to is because we have to go to him in faith, he who seeks finds, it's not about proving him to everyone, God wants you to prove he's real to yourself, and everyone I know who has, does not regret it. That is real enough for me, you don't believe it, I really don't care, I can tell you won't even consider what I say hypothetically, although I'll leave you with this- Einstien once said 'the only thing worse than the bigotry of the

      "The following persons shall be disqualified for office: First, any person who shall deny the being of Almighty God."

    • I think you misunderstand religion, you've bought into ideas that 'Christian extremists' say. It's more a personal step to find God and prove him to yourself, that's where salvation is, the denomination does not matter.

    • Out of curiosity, are you a believer in the big bang? I dunno, I still can't wrap my head around that. Because then what came before that... And then what came before that...
      How can something come out of nothing? It just doesn't make sense 😱

      (Granted, religion doesn't offer the most satisfying explanation with "well God was always there," but I'm just curious mostly how science would explain it-- the orgin of the universe... From nothing to something)

    • @dangerDoge science doesn't really have any answers and it seems to piss them off honestly.

  • No, there is no compelling evidence for the existence of God and given that religious people are claiming something exists, the burden of proof is on them to prove it. I don't have to disprove anything, because atheism isn't a claim it is a rejection of a claim. As for evolution I will explain that here really simple.

    A) nothing as complicated as DNA can be perfectly replicated. Copying errors, naturally occurring radiation, disease, etc cause new patterns of genes to form expanding the gene pool. Sexual reproduction also causes increased genetic variation.

    B) living things die. Living things that do not live long enough to reproduce don't pass on their genes. Living things that are poorly adapted to their environment are far less likely to be among those that survive to reproduction, which results in the survivors having better attributes due to the process of elimination. Same reason you don't see trailer trash at Harvard, they aren't likely to make the cut.

    C) when the environment changes to be less hospitable to a species, some individuals will have traits that were previously not important that may enable them to survive. If not enough individuals in the species have the necessary traits to survive the new environment they will go extinct.

    D) a gene can be spread through an entire sexual species if the lineage of the individual carrying the gene can survive and reproduce. One individual has x children, those x children have y grandchildren, etc with numbers theoretically increasing with each successful generation.

    E) populations among a species that get separated will have different adaptations and will eventually diverge into two or more distinct species because the random and naturally occurring variations will not be shared amongst the whole species.

    • Evolution happens within a species but we have always been humans from the start, look at canine, wolves are canine, poodles are canine, despite hundreds of thousands of generations to get there they are both the same species and never changed, we have always been human,

      You've stated observations made by science, yet science still can't explain half of them fully anyway, Faith is about finding God on a personal scale-if you live your life by what science tells you you are a very sad man (or sack of meat and cells and harmones)

    • @Poe134 most dog breeds were created within the last few hundred years. I think you are confused as to what evolution is. Evolution doesn't create new genes. New genes happen infrequently. All evolution does is select the genes that allowed to host to reproduce. Humans designed dogs and controlled which ones bred. In the case of chihuahuas, they were bred to be excessively tiny. There's no reason for them to have developed non-wolflike features.

      Yes for human evolution I am using fossils as evidence. There is a very clear progression in the fossils from more ape like in the past to more human in the present. I don't see why you are so dismissive of those facts. Do you have an alternative explanation with evidence to back it up?

    • You are using evidence that is not fully backed up, there are fossils of HUMANS, not another species, there is a species barrier to all and it has never been broken, you may believe we came for goo dumped out by molten ash but I do not. Please take your evidence which even many scientists question the validity of and go to another place to slew it.

  • If there were a few less atheist scientists when we would have proven his existance by now. If you really just take a look at science how perfectly complicated everything is and how is works perfectly is amazing evidence for a God. However so many scientists and people blindly and angrily reject God and say that this perfect thing was created by accident that people believe it.

Simply put, I have trouble believing that God actually cares about us in light of all the evil in the world. I think that at the very best, he is the naturalist scientific type who would rather observe the world but not intervene, while at the very worst he is a deadbeat father who walked out on us. Either way, I don't see much of a point in rendering him worship, though I practice my religion because I like the poetic nature of the services and belonging to the last stronghold of traditionalism left in the West.

  • I'm passively christian. I believe that God is a symbol good and evil, right and wrong, created by all the collective human minds, thoughts and opinions of this world. God decides the core values that we must adhere to in the world and we will be judged by God according to our actions on the judgment day, the day when a future mind/minds judge how we acted. Just like how we look back at famous historic persons. Erasure of journals will save us from being judged and make us look good if we did something bad.

    I just see the proof of God to be severely lacking, from all angles. Whether it may stem from a religious argument, to an argument using science.

    However, I would really love to.
    There's a nice comfort knowing that people you love will never be forever lost to you and that you know everything will be okay at the end of the day. I guess that's one main reason why most of us believe in it, anyway? I know that was why I did for a long time.
