LOL!

But the only way that Eric's statement can be true is if you and Payne (and all other atheists and agnostics here) acknowledge that God exists.

I'm still wondering why he posted something that is demonstrably not true. We don't all agree on ANYTHING in this forum.


Life can be boring when we all agree on things. All I know is that I have my opinions and they are usually correct. Can we agree on that? Smile

Of course not.

But I'd still like an authoritative answers as to what day of the week the Last Supper was, how many angels were at Jesus' tomb, how many women came to visit the tomb and to whom, if anyone, they told what they had witnessed.

I'll agree that god(s) exist as soon as you provide me with some verifiable evidence of them. Til that time I have no reason to hold a belief in the existence of such mythical beings.

So no, we do not all agree that god(s) exist

I thought the question was, do you want a god to exist, not do you belief in its existence.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I have thougth about asking this as a two part question. The second part of the question is obvious. WHY?...


Since folks are not up on Scalzi's story "Redshirts" - how about the movie "The Last Action Hero" as a compare and contrast between such worlds?

Actually I kept checking and the thread slowed down a lot. So I just wanted to get "er-started" again.

Tommy, you are wrong on both assumptions. Here is the complete original post and if we stuck to it there would be no debate whatsoever.

ORIGINAL POST: Would you want there to be a Supreme Being or would you prefer that we are here by one big accident?

I have thougth about asking this as a two part question. The second part of the question is obvious. WHY?

Not sure if this would be considered a poll or a question.

Anyway here is my answer.

I would opt for the supreme being deal. The reason is that I hope there is more than just this.

Not looking for a debate here just curious about what you would prefer and if possible answer why. Just don't want to start a debate with the why. So don't answer the why if you are going to debate.
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000
