I wish people would quit it with the coffee, (I'll save that for that rant thread Thumbsup )

Did I not just tell you how to acquire evidence, lazybones?

Whatever I gained through that absurd process, it wouldn't qualify as evidence. Drinking Beverage

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

No you didn't you made the same banal meaningless assertion you have from the beginning. Everything is evidence but God is ethereal and thus leaves no evidence. If you do not understand how that is the teapot argument you need to go and reread that.

Well, if you don't like the evidence, I hate to say this but:
too bad.

That's the evidence I have (though I don't need evidence for faith), and that's the instructions to get my religious experience (with the tree and all that).

What more do you need from me?

I never said I worshiped God. I said I believed and appreciated and experienced his benevolence. Also he is wholly in and out of the multiveerse at the same time.

You seem bent on defending, asserting and/or justifying gods existence... Sounds like worship to me but for the sake of argument lets just say that it's not... Still why go out of your way to preach/defend/assert/argue on behalf of your world view?

Also you need to look up the word 'evidence' cause you seem to be confused on what constitutes it.

"No your honor the murder weapon was not MY GUN, it was a gun identical to my gun in every conceivable way that exists both inside and outside the universe which randomly kills people in my house. If you will just embrace the fact that I am innocent you will see all the evidence you could ever need to exonerate me."

You want to hear the preaching; this thread was popular demand.

I need nothing from you, I really don't care about anyone's metaphysics as long as they do not try and force them on others or legislate their version of morality. However if you put your metaphysics up for a debate, as you have here I will discuss them and point out illogical irrational assertions and I expect the same of you when I posit my metaphysics. That is how you play this game. Drinking Beverage

Pfff...really? Black holes, exploding stars dead worlds, your god isn't sustaining very well. only concerned with the earth then? Things aren't so great here eitherTongue.
This is a metaphorical god right? Not literal? Whatever makes you feel good I guess...

Tongue I was VERY bored. Now I'm over my ears in questions that I'm finding harder and harder to answer.

May I say good work everyone, this is harder than I thought it would be!

I thought that was fairly concise and straightforward but what I meant was that was not meant as a personal attack and frankly I don't really care if you come over to my side of this debate (informal as it is) and this is not meant to be ganging up on you. This is what I do for entertainment, it is a game and there are rules to the game. Now if you ask me what my metaphysics are I will gladly lay them out and then if you see something wrong you are more than welcome to point that out.

As to the coffee smiley.
