  1. There can’t be verifiable evidence. There is plenty of evidence to be found in personal experience.

  2. Well it’s the only means left to discover and it’s in the positive can’t have a negative experience be on the positive . Can’t say there definitely that there is no such things. So maybe not persuasive, but it’s true.

  3. They may answer that after the flood, life evolved from the survived animals, producing new family trees

  4. They will agree to this, but only after pages of arguing that it is impossible, evolution is ridiculous, etc. If you can pin them down to some basic arithmetic, after they have consulted AIG or their preferred liars, they will assert this sped up hyper evolution that has never been observed.

  5. Then you must oppose the caste system.

  6. It's false. They retrofit various poems and stories and say they are about Jesus. They're not. If they were, the Jews would have become Christians, and we wouldn't have Judaism.

  7. If you are a Christian, then you have to believe that this life is but a blink of an eye, a test for the eternal life to follow. You are nothing more than a test subject.

  8. I'm not going to spend 25 minutes of my valuable life listening to someone describe their experience. Are they summarized somewhere?

  9. So you have now shown us that actually you have no idea what the actual Theory of Evolution says. Thank you for that. So at this point you are arguing against theory that does not exist, and which none of us accept. Pointless, don't you agree?

  10. Great. If you dedicated to honesty, I'm sure you will want the truth about evolution, right?

  11. Having been a creationist I can model their responses . I refer back to my teenage creationist self . This would not have convinced me . Because I would have said “ God could have million reasons that you can’t possibly know for making the giraffe the way he did “ . And I would be correct .

  12. Exactly. Creationism is not falsifiable because it makes no specific claims. The alleged creator is mysterious and could for His own reason like long vagus nerves or sending sperm and urine through the same tube--who knows?

  13. I will also say YEC hypothesis has certain aspects that are actually falsifiable At least to me

  14. It is if you retain any trust in empiricism, even the slightest. But once you get into the realm of Last Thursdayism, which some YECs will resort to, anything goes.

  15. Do you have an actual example of an actual user stating that the burden is not on the person claiming that covid vaccines are safe?

  16. Please see the below sections in the OP for my justification of that claim:

  17. You mean the bare unsupported assertions that you made up out of whole cloth? Those justifications?

  18. You are going in circles. You are saying you NEED to believe in evolution BEFORE you show any evidence as I keep listing reasons why it is false. You have nothing to support it.

  19. You are in denial. You have not presented one piece of evidence for evolution because you know there is none.

  20. So your view is that you can understand the evidence for evolution without understanding evolution itself? Is that right? If so I guess I'll dive right in, but I'm afraid you're going to have trouble following it, especially as you don't seem to be able to comprehend simple English sentences.

  21. I think you'll find that asking questions works better than lecturing.

  22. Let me be clear, I generally say this when people ask if I'm Christian and want to discuss. I can see why Christianity has a better chance of converting people. They don't care about lecturing, they believe they are right and there are whole libraries on how to deliver this to the nonbelievers. There is music, radio, buildings, booklets, training classes, etc all to deliver this message of Christ. By not saying anything or stepping aside, these people have grasped control of our nation and are fighting to teardown schools, make being trans illegal, and marginalize anyone that is not how they believe. There is a war going on, and what I am hearing here is “don't worry about it”

  23. Please read my comment again. You will see that I am trying to make you more effective, not stop you.

  24. Depends, like if I God came up to tell me something like "kill your mother" then I reason to understand that that probably wasn't God. Stuff like sex is a little more nuanced, and so I don't think Reason can fill in the gaps.

  25. Extremely mysterious. Except when they're telling us what He commands us not to do. Then they're suddenly extremely specific.

  26. Christians are afraid atheists will laugh at them.

  27. ““If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother. “But if he does not listen to you, take one or two more with you, so that by the mouth of two or three witnesses every fact may be confirmed. “If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.” (Matthew 18:15-17, NASB)

  28. So do you rebuke your fellow Christians or not? Did you rebuke this jerk, for example?

  29. What if you happen to fail to raise the required money?

  30. We can't have children reading books can we? What are you, some kind of communist?

  31. Do you realize how illogical your question is? If X can by Y, why can't Z be Y? If a bird can fly, why can't snakes fly?

  32. Seems like what your asking here is to have someone confirm your presuppositional bias against one religious belief so you can adopt another.

  33. Research has shown that one of the best ways to increase your own happiness is to help others. Did helping this man not make you feel happier?

  34. What have I failed to research? Please educate me. Did I make a false claim?

  35. So if I follow you, your concern is that homosexuality is so obviously preferable to heterosexuality in every way, that if we let people practice it without punishment, everyone will choose it? Is that right?

  36. There is definitely overlap in the Venn diagram of religious belief and mental illness.

  37. To be brief, living things have neural systems that can perceive, process and respond to the environment. We are beginning to approach that with computers, but other than that, no organism, no brain, no mental function.
