If there are 93 elements that make up everything who witnessed that?

If Macintosh built the first computer in his garage "WHO witnessed that?"

Ignorance + ignorance = stupidity

You have so much information here Arty from people.
But what do you choose? ignorance.

You keep posting Atheist things that are not your words or your mind.

And that is called SPAMMING.

Should I post 60,000 bible verses instead of my own mind?

A lot of people here do that. But how much reasoning can there be with comments from people you never knew?

There are more.

"Macintosh" did not build the first computer in his garage.

No one witnessed events that never happened.

No one witnessed gods events either.


hmmm.

Why did you choose ignorance?

satisfied with not knowing.

Its documented that people with low IQ's tend to be more religious than people with high IQ's, but more studies have shown that religion in your family actually causes low IQ's.

The lack of curiosity in reality caused by thinking that you know all you need to know, leads to not learning, not stretching yourself, and if you dont use it, you lose it.

Tim, did you not realise how many elements there are, or the history of computers, was it all so uninteresting that you didnt bother finding out? A lack of enquiry means not knowing the truth. You think you know all you need to know, The sky fairy up there looks over as cloud and smiles down benignly at you, so bliss out.

That if your parents are Christian, there is a greater likelihood that you will be Christian.

Also, that if your parents are Muslim, there is a greater likelihood that you will be Muslim.

Also, that if your parents are Mormon, there is a greater likelihood that you will be Mormon.

Seems to be a pattern here.



Go figure, huh? Seems that there is a geographical link as well.

seeing what connection that actual gods have is difficult to make.

Any person in the world seems to have infinitely greater capability to prove their existance than any given god has.

This is very significant to me at least.

For creatures that are reputed to have such great material powers apparently, and have had such a profound influence over our past, presnet and futures, why are they so incredibly incapable of demonstrating that connection?

To say they are spiritual creatures rather than physical creatures reduces their influence on our lives to exactly nothing. If they have a presence in our lives surely it must be unambiguously obvious somewhere.

Christians are quick to say something could have been caused by god, but if they are so sure, why isnt god capable of doing anything that isnt ambiguous. Why is faith so important to someone who shouldnt need it unless he is a fable?

Why should god value blind faith when the conclusion that he is just a fable is quite valid from what we are presented with?

A meme explains god better than faith does.

God is what he is because he is no more than a meme.

J. R. R. Tolkien was an amazing writer, poet, and professor of Language and Literature - and a devout Catholic.

C. S. Lewis was a a novelist, poet, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, and faculty member at Oxford. He was also a lay theologian and Christian apologist.

Here is a listing of the twenty most brilliant Christian college professors today, they might surprise you:

We both know someone online who claims to be an atheist, but they are one of the most hate-filled, ignorant, racist posters around. I'm a Christian, and my IQ was scored 138 on one standardized test, and 140 on another. So there are certainly exceptions, LOL...
