Quote# 59692

God requires no creator because the fact is he is outside of space and time and the fact is that something outside of space and time does not need to be made.

Everything requires a first cause. That first cause requires no first cause because it is a first cause. It is God.

Also, you can't prove God doesn't exist. If God didn't really exist it would be really easy to prove this because we would understand everything and the universe would not be real complex like it is in reality.

Given your reasoning, the singularity of the big bang required no creator either.

God gets out of infinite regress because God gets out of infinite regress.

umm..how did you make such a jump that a first cause is a god? Why not a goddess? Why not an infinite amount of infinitely powerful gods and goddesses?

Why not say that it is a first cause and you dont know whats before that?

I know, becuase that means being honest and not lying for Jesus.

The human mind is incapable of processing the phrase "outide of space and time." It is logically incoherent.

The rest of your stuff is deep, though. By any chance was your mother frightened by a philosophy book while she was carrying you?

"the universe would not be real [sic] complex like it is in reality."

Design a simpler universe than our own that is still capable of supporting life.

Scratch that, just explain why complexity proves a creator at all. Systems capable of emergence often result in incredibly complex structures, even when they are allowed to run naturally. Thus, complexity alone does not prove a creator.

And even if it did, I refer back to my original point, that the universe likely could not be any simpler than it is now and still be capable of supporting intelligent life. If you could prove that a simpler universe might exist that could support life, and that complexity proves a creator, then you'll have something.

I always felt it was the other way around. The sheer complexity of the universe proves it doesn't have a creator. A creator wouldn't need to make everything so complicated for it to work! Especially the human body. Nothing has quite confirmed my atheism like studying medical stuff!

Amazing! Marvelous! Wonderful!

Whether it's a superlative example of the willfully ignorant uber-fundy, or a masterful Poe, this one deserves a 5.

Okay, well, the first part is at least understandable, if horribly wrong, but this:

Also, you can't prove God doesn't exist. If God didn't really exist it would be really easy to prove this because we would understand everything and the universe would not be real complex like it is in reality.

Seriously, what the fuck?

Also, you can't prove God doesn't exist.

That's why the burden of proof is on you, cocksucker.

Modern cosmological models presuppose that the Big Bang originated from a quantum background that existed outside of space and time.

(Since "space" and "time" exist only inside the universe that originated from the Big Bang.)

Since this quantum background exists outside of space and time, by your reasoning, it didn't need to be made and requires no first cause because it is a first cause.

Um... "everything" has a slightly different definition in his world. These arn't arguments, they are unfounded assertions with no evidence supporting them

The Flying Spaghetti Monster requires no creator because the fact is He is outside of space and time and the fact is that something outside of space and time does not need to be made.

Everything requires a first cause. That first cause requires no first cause because it is a first cause. It is the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Also, you can't prove the Flying Spaghetti Monster doesn't exist. If the Flying Spaghetti Monster didn't really exist it would be really easy to prove this because we would understand everything and the universe would not be real complex like it is in reality.

Now you know why the Cosmological Argument, which has been around for 2,500 years, isn't thought much of by theologians. It leads to any god or gods you want to invent.

By definition, "outside of space and time" means non-existence. Outside of space and time precludes interaction with that which is inside space and time. Outside of space and time really means non-existence. Thanks for proving that there is no god.

As to the next two paragraphs, both moot, since you've logically disproved god. Thanks!

"Everything requires a first cause."

Ok. I'll give you that.

"That first cause requires no first cause because it is a first cause."

God requires no creator because the fact is he is outside of space and time and the fact is that something outside of space and time does not need to be made.
Then how does he affect things INside of space and time? I mean if he's outside of space and time, he shouldn't be able to manipulate anything in our reality, let alone create anything.

Everything requires a first cause. That first cause requires no first cause because it is a first cause. It is God.
So which is it? Either everything requires a first cause, and as such, God requires a creator, or it doesn't, and the universe could just have bee, no God needed. You can't have it both ways.

Also, you can't prove God doesn't exist.
And you can't prove that he does. So take him on faith, see if I care. But you've got to do a lot better than this to convince me.

If God didn't really exist it would be really easy to prove this because we would understand everything and the universe would not be real complex like it is in reality.
Who ordered the Non Sequitur? God not existing does not mean the world would just unveil itself to us. And why wouldn't it? Hell, I would think an omniscient, all powerful being should have been able to make the universe far more simple, and a lot less chaotic, no?
