Re: Prayer For The Universe
It's just a book.
Not even a coherent and planned book, but rather a random collection of ancient writings followed by a random collection of classical writings.

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Re: Prayer For The Universe
So if you throw away the book, what God would you have?
Why is your book any more important or "real" than other religious tomes? I have one less god than you.
Were you to pretend to be a believer, what type of God would you imagine that was/is superior to the Lord Jesus Christ/
Doesn't work that way. I cannot conceive of a god. If there were such an entity it would be beyond all comprehension, so not worth even bothering about.

My favorite Easter joke.
Did you hear they canceled Easter?

Re: Something Positive
Again you miss the point.
Then why should anyone care about your beliefs if there is no evidence? The only difference between christianity and pastafarianism is that christianity was created millenia ago.

Evil atheists, collapsing economy. Phat's visions
How and why would the world be worse?
The economy seems to be doing quite well considering we are coming out of a world spanning pandemic and there is a major war going on. Tell us more about this collapsing economy you see. Facts and data only please.

Re: Keyword: Son. We are sons, not slaves.
If you are a Christian, OTOH, you can explain to them that Allah really DID have a Son.
So you think it is ok to try to talk people out of their religion.
You sure either got talked out of it or talked yourself out of it quite easily.
Why would you say this? One it doesn't support you but rather him. You truly are that clueless. Also, you have no idea why he or anyone else is an atheist.
I see you won't respond to Message 754. Typical.

Then do not make the assertions. If you claim something you should be able to back it with actual facts.
