Atheists answer the question of why the natural universe exists in much the same way as theists answer the question of why God exists. Usually something along the lines of. "I don't know", "perhaps it always existed", "it seems to have made itself", "there was no time before" etc. If you can answer the question regarding God you will have no trouble reframing the answer to skip a step and apply to the universe directly.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

They don't hold up that well on a grill. A fish basked doesn't even work for them.


I suggest stir-fry with plenty of sesame oil.

Where is it written everyone MUST make assertions about everything and have a claim about every topic? You're just showing your ignorance again. Haven't you ever been indifferent about anything?

Indifferent is fine; but you lose the intellectual honesty if you positively claim that religious people are wrong.

EDIT: Wrong as in they are wrong there is a God.

Wishful thinking. You are wrong because you rely on the "evidence" (and I use the term VERY loosely) of the superstitious fairy tales of bronze and iron age goatfuckers.

Being the resident Rushologist on TTA, I will quote my favorite Canadian trio and then be done with this thread: "Why are we here? Because we're here, roll the bones."

Check out my atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

Another brownshirt thread, eh guys? Looks like fun. Drinking Beverage

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
