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.

I am a big fan of PZ. He exudes reasonableness.

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

They found the body.

Acts is a fable. It is not corroborated by historical facts and evidence.
