So tell me why evolutionary theory couldn't be factual with God as a reality?


Tell me why the Eiffel Tower couldn't be factual with Bigfoot as a reality.

It could. But the Eiffel Tower can be explained quite nicely without reference to Bigfoot, so why bring Bigfoot into it?

Seems to me that God is not only outside of the box but made the very box possible.


People are always trying to think outside the box before they understand the box. If you haven't studied the box thoroughly, how do you know whether you're inside or out?

I am not prepared to support the idea that God is un necessary period...nor should you, Ringo.


I'm prepared to support the idea that the god you try to market is not only unnecessary; it's downright detrimental.

Re: Refusal to believe without Evidence
Phat writes:

Nothing in your mind, perhaps. But you want it that way.

Oh come on Phat - it's not in my mind, it's evidential. There is no evidence of external influence. If you had any, there would be no disagreement.

Humans that believe in anything prefer their beliefs to be agreeable to themselves.
Humans do not want/need or have to believe in something disagreeable.

My premise is that GOD is agreeable to some and disagreeable to others. I would expect that this by and large determines their stance on His possible/probable existence.

sigh

IT'S EVIDENTIAL. It's not a belief. It's got nothing to do with whether I find your god agreeable or not. He's a fantasy, he's as disagreeable as Neptune - He's not real Phat. I don't believe in your God because there's no evidence for him and stacks that we made it all up.

You guys keep imposing your own reasons on others. Making up excuses for us. God knows why, we keep telling you often enough. It's like you need us to be like you, just have different beliefs.

Try to get it into your head that we don't believe in your God because HE'S DOESN'T EXIST. At the very least stop making shit up about what you think we believe and why.

Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved."
