Oh WOW! Yet another of the numerous theist non sequiturs.

I thank you for the laugh. No

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

RE: Yes a God, no afterlife
I'm tired of this thread, I'd rather hear more about the care and feeding of garage dragons especially the invisible ones. Unfortunately I don't have a garage so I have to rely on second hand accounts. This is one of the very few times I will willingly accept anecdotal evidence.

Today is the best day of my life and tomorrow will be even better.

Couldn't say as I have no idea what that is... and I think I'm glad I don't. The only spice world I know of is Arrakis

I'm not trolling you fucking moron. You idiots seem to have a fetish for trolling. You wish I was just trolling, so you wouldn't have to think about anything I'm saying. But then, you don't really think of anything on your own. You're just like most other people, a stupid sheep. I'll always be better than you, unless of course you choose to stop being a prick and own up to your individuality. I'm not holding my breath.

What you are saying we have already thought about. We have dismissed it as there is no evidence. Drinking Beverage

That does not follow. I see no reason why it would not be possible to believe in either one without the other. I just see no reason to believe in either one.

I had a close friend who was so worried about living beyond life that he spent a fair portion of his free time trying to figure out how it might be possible. Last I heard (some years ago now), he no longer believed in any god but did believe in reincarnation, so he counts as one of the few spiritualistic atheists I know of.

As for me, it makes no sense that "mortal man" should really be immortal. We know we die. We don't know we live beyond death, and the evidence for the brain-dependence of consciousness is against it.

To me, immortality makes sense only for a god, and a god makes no sense.

Good for you. You want to keep existing. What's Plan A? If you really, really believe in a god that doesn't exist the maggots will still feast on your eyeballs.

A quick look around the universe shows us that everything comes to an end. Mountains fall, stars die, and in time even the black holes will evaporate. Tell me why a soggy sack of proteins like yourself should carry on forever.

Nope. The Hebrews who wrote the Bible didn't believe in one.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

I do try to compensate for the sogginess with extra-dry wit, though Smartass
