Likewise.

The difference is that we have evidence and you do not.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

That is seemingly because they don't grasp that all is the same and changeable for good or bad.

Or that sin is just a made-up concept. Consider

And of course Cain isn't presented by the Genesis narrative as an atheist or a "mainline" (LOL) believer. Cain is, however, the third person in the Bible to trip the wire on a trap set by angry-dad god. He gave god the wrong present, so god humiliated him, knowing (omniscient) what would happen.

I'm not perfect, just more ethical than your god.
There were two forces at work during the big bang or creation as we know it. With that being said; God, being all the good of creation had little to do with Cain's sins. It was internal corruption from evil. The other building block is you will

So you're convinced that atheists are the ones whose mind can not be changed with evidence? How surprising Rolleyes

RE: Personal experience argument
It's just that they close their minds to any other possible truth other than science as opposed to incorperating it into real life.

And by other possible truths you mean your woo? Also atheism isn't so intimately linked with science as you appear to sugest, it's just lack of belief in god not religious belief in science.

Science. There is reality that completely coincides With science. However, somehow science has actually closed some doors for most. You will find some who accept that science is only part of the picture or puzzle, not the whole picture or completed puzzle.

For you perhaps. I don't think you can speak for all. Just as I cannot speak for most theists.
