Quote# 72530

How many scientists have created something out of nothing? Zero? Not even a stick of juicy fruit gum? Amazing when you compare that to the creation of the entire universe. Well, I guess I’ll leave all you sophistimicated smart folks alone now, and go back to thumping my Bible. P.S.–If atheists are just as capable of being as moral and decent as believers, how come they all seem to be insufferable a$$holes like you, Phil?

So apparently being a skeptic and exposing a fundy's flawed reasoning and beliefs makes someone an insufferable asshole. Thanks for clarifying.

True, I can't create anything out of nothing. I can't light a lightbulb by wishing, I can't bring the truly dead back to life, I can't make a 2-sided triangle, and I can't understand why you idiots can't figure out that it's not a question of what humans can do, it's a question of your showing that your God even exists.

P.S. If you don't like the idea of something coming from nothing, then how do you explain the supposed existence of your God?

That would be every scientist who demonstrates the Casimir effect, where they turn unreal virtual particles into real particles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casimir_effect
Nature does the same thing, without any God required.

Matter doesn't work that way.

"If atheists are just as capable of being as moral and decent as believers, how come they all seem to be insufferable a$$holes like you, Phil?"

My, that's a shiny mirror you've got. Thankfully most people on both sides are not insufferable assholes.

"Well, God's creation is better than atheists' creation!" Why in the world can't these people see the flaw in that argument for an ATHEIST?

Come to think of it, cgray, your sky fairy didn't really claim to create the universe "out of nothing" either. Genesis says it was shapeless and squishy, and he just molded stuff out of it (suspiciously similar to the Egyptian and Sumerian creation myths, of course, but you've never heard of those). Why don't you try actually reading your precious Bible for a change instead of jerking off into it?

For the last fucking time: the singularity hypothesized to exist before the sudden expansion known as the Big Bang was not "nothing". It was everything.

Amazing when you compare that to the creation of the entire universe.

Actually, I think it's amazing that you would compare the creation of a stick of gum to the creation of the entire universe...but that's beside the point.

Do I understand correctly? Is your argument "We don't know what created the universe, therefore I know what created the universe?"

Well, I guess I’ll leave all you sophistimicated smart folks alone now, and go back to thumping my Bible.

Please do.

Who ever claimed scientists can create something from nothing (or that some natural event did the same)?

You know, you fundies thinking that people who don't believe in God must be amoral sociopaths says more about yourselves than anyone else. Hey, fundies, if the only reason you're willing to act like a decent human being is because you're scared that you'll burn in hell if you don't, then I don't think you are a decent human being. I'd trust any atheist before I'd trust your insane, fundie ass.

atheists are just as capable of being as moral and decent as believers--

--why aren't more atheists in prison? The vast majority of the prison population claim to be believers.

I bet Phil Plaitt administered an intellectual beat-down to this poor doofus.

Proove to use that I haven't created my very own universe! I know because I was there!

Morality is a learned behavior, subject to the way one is raised and taught, regardless of belief in deities.

Maybe folks (atheists or not) react to you in such a way because you come off as a total ass nugget?

I'm not atheist but most of the ones I know are very respectful of my beliefs. Most assholes I met tend to be Christian and give Christians a bad name

Immoral =/= insufferable.

Here's the thing: You can't prove divine creation, you have nothing to offer for the development of the universe or life but an ancient plagerized and altered book.

The REAL test is your CHURCH vs SCIENCE.

YOU LOSE

Isn't most gum chemicals these days? They don't go pick it right off the Juicy Fruit tree.

"how come they all seem to be insufferable a$$holes like you, Phil?"

Because we cant win with you zealots..I have been told by fundies that I was rude and disrespectful just for saying I was an atheist.

P.S. - reread your post and tell me who the insufferable asshole really is.

How many priests have created something out of nothing? That's right, zero.

Ozymandias

It always amazes me to see how fundies seem to demand that science perform a miracle to validate itself, never realising the irony in their statement. And half the time, science has already performed said 'miracle'.

Hey, cgray, when was the last time you saw your God perform a miracle? Maybe he can try making you less of an insufferable asshole.

Ah, condescending moral person of christ spewing thoughts on something he doesn't understand very well...

Now prove that this god poped out of nowhere and created the earth from nothing.
