Kinda like ignorant theists thinking a scientific theory is a hunch, huh?

Er...any?

We hear this silliness about Christians having a relationship and not a religion. What if god behaved as he did in the Genesis myth? He comes down and talks to you, hangs out, plays X-Box with you, eats with your friends and family.

Basically he exists like a real, actual person! Not some imaginary thing in someone's "heart" (biblical anatomical ignorance on display) that did impressive things thousands of years ago, but no more.

I had my fill of the purveyors of woo telling me how you will find him if you believe. You'll never see him though, just like you'll find snipes if you believe, but you'll never actually see one, excuse me for calling BS on their snipe hunt.

You name a religion after it.

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

I don't need evidence for a god to start doing some god damn good in the world. I don't need to believe. I don't need to accept anything.

When the famine stricken regions of the world suddenly become lush and plentiful with food to feed the starving people, I'll say "Good job"

When the all drug war lords are dead and drug addicts cured of addiction, I'll nod my head and go back to typing away on my book.

When I don't even notice that the world had become a better place to live nearly over night, this will be my cue to say "bout fucking time"

I don't need evidence. I just need all this stuff taken care of.

Giving atheists evidence means that they've already won.

You already lost - you're just too delusional to realize it.

What kind of evidence would it take for a theist to consider the possibility that he/she might be mistaken concerning the existence of God?

That's the question I want asked BEFORE.. or right at the beginning of any debate about God that a religious person has.

Seeing the end of the Nye vs Ham debate, where Ham proudly stated at the end when asked that- nothing, was sickening to see. There's no credibility or worth to listen to them(as if there was) when they make those stances.
