What do you know that scientists have studied for decades and still dont know yet YOU know?

Atheism is the believe that something came out of nothing but how does something come from nothing?

Creating a child needs a man and a woman and the sperm creates the child so something came to be so that child was born, obviously nothing can come from ''nothing'', sounds good on paper but in reality makes no logical sense.

Is the possibility of a talking snake impossible? Who knows, i dont know so i wont pretend that i do.

I sense many a stawman here.

Atheism is lack of belief in gods. That's it, by definition. No things coming from nothing or anything like that, merely we do not believe in deities.
Far as I am concerned, your average agnostic is essentially an atheist anyway, considering they rarely seem to have any positive belief in gods.

Oh, about talking snakes.. A talking snake is impossible. Their larynx is simply not formed in a way which would facilitate speech, at least in a manner recognisable by humans.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

The dismissal of preposterous notions such as the 70th son of the Babylonian war god (El Elyon) whose name was Yahweh Sabaoth is a real deity, and tea pots orbiting the sun, do not require a formal intellectual position. However we here at TTA *do* like to provide a public service. Please call my assistant and schedule an appointment for proof that your preposterous "unknown" can/cn't be dismissed, and that you do not need to state you are "agnostic" towards the ridiculous idea.
I am busy this week proving there is no 1957 Chevy orbiting Pluto.

Well, that went from "my first post on the forum" to "why don't you just kill yourself" awfully quickly.

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

RE: What made you an Atheist and not an Agnostic?
I'm quite new to this forum - still a newby.
Guess I need to be alert for the drive by assaults. They are a waste of time when trying to give an in depth point by point refutation.

In any case - I'm armed with reason. Defeats all assaults from gods, ghosts, spirits and demons or even "THE GOD" (& talking snakes too)

You all do realize this idiot troll came in here, posted one stupid thing, hasn't responded once to your remarks and yet it's now on its third page and growing. This argument is ubiquitous on this forum, why do we keep answering it, especially for obvious trolls? Maybe we should just have links to standard repetitive answers we can refer to and then have the new threads answered with one of the links and then locked by admins. Smile

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

Hey monster, where you located? I used to breed not too long ago myself. Now mostly a rat breeder (feeder rats).

The truth of the matter is:

Atheists disbelieve in magical invisible "godly" beings primarily because there is no evidence to support such stories.

Theists believe in magical invisible "godly" beings despite the entire lack of evidence to support such stories.

Noone knows how existence came to be, most atheists admit they don't know, most (if no all) theists claim that their magical invisible "godly" being did it.

Air needs to publish a paper in a peer reviewed journal:
