Having asked point blank for any of the idiot theists here to prove
god, and all of them failing why are we still talking about it?
You understand NOTHING about Monotheism.... So shut the fuck up!
What more is there to understand aside from the fact that there is no God?
Why do you believe that no God exists?
I did not came out with the god thing, just like I did not came out with
the Loki thing, nor the Zeus thing.
They're just part of our human nature, imagination and, sometimes, drug
The jewish, xian and muslim god is only one of the myriad gods we invented.
Okay, so let's say that I accept that Darwinism is correct. The
question then becomes; if Darwinism is true what is wrong with inventing
gods when we know evolution is all about survival of the fittest. If a
society invents deities, believes they are true and thereby flourishes
what's the problem? The Romans and Greeks flourished for centuries with
a pantheon of gods. And if Islam takes over the Western world, what is
the problem? It may not be a nice outcome for the atheists and
Christians but the reality of evolution is that weaker ones go to the
wall and the stronger ones prevail and prosper. What has truth to do
"Evolutionary biology" and "Societal evolution"* are not the same thing.
Fallacy of equivocation, Steve-O.
And only k00ks insist on calling the modern synthesis of evolutionary
science "Darwinism." Do you call post-Einsteinian physics "Newtonism?"
You are Plato's Thrasymachus AICMFP.

Is it that you are saying the world ought to be a certain way -
that truth and justice matter? If so where are you getting these
They can be derived from the nature of human beings by philosophical
examination. The physical laws of the universe, as far as they are
known, can't be ignored, of course.
When you say "inventing ghods" it reminds me of Plato's Republic and
the concept of the "noble lie." Are you one of those who say, "there
may not be ghodz, but it is good for the city if the people believe
in them and fear their wrath?" Cynical rulers, some no more believers
than I am, have pulled that wool over the sheep's eyes for a long time.
I'll take verifiable truth, please.
