You just made a positive claim for the existence of something.
Before you can go into this any further you first have to provide convincing evidence that this is so, or else everything that comes after is pointless.

That's a personal opinion or preference statement. We can't confirm or deny any of it.

That was fixed above.
It's a lack of belief in a god, not a belief that a god does not exist.

Because he didn't respond to the replies within one day? Consider

Give him a break. There's no need to rush anything.

Lets keep in mind that the OP has been inundated with replies. Lets also keep in mind that Egor can't be expected to spend a whole lot of time on the forum just because we want answers to our questions.

Instead, why not stop reposting arguments that others have already made, and try to practice patience while we wait for Egor to reply. Because really, all we are doing at this point is muddling up the thread and preventing Egor from having the opportunity to look at each argument, and give it the merit it deserves.

(FYI, I'm not pointing fingers, or otherwise putting anyone down. I just want to remind people that sometimes, re-stating something that's already been said can just cause a lot of confusion. Let's give Egor a chance to respond now)

RE: God Exists: An Open Debate
He's a busy guy. He has his career to deal with. Seriously. He is a psych RN, he probably is in management of THAT nut house, (and if not, and actually really dealing with those VERY difficult patients...man I could not do that for more than an hour, I would jump off the bridge MYSELF), then he comes here and has THIS nut house. And if you haven't seen his recent web site, he's turned what was once a quirky "thing", into a serious literary endeavor. I used to think he was a nut case. No longer. He's a bright guy. He wants our input. He respects us. He uses us to bounce stuff off. He's impatient with stupidity .. very much like many of us. He does not "suffer fools" well. I have grown to like him.
