Quote from: Atheon on January 07, 2017, 12:51:35 AM"There is no god." I say it's a conclusion I have reached by recognizing the complete lack of evidence for a god's existence and the complete lack of reasoning that would make a god necessary.
Quote from: Baruch on January 07, 2017, 09:33:14 AMReasoning? We don't need no stinkin' reasoning! There are no posters here who are Vulcans. Humans are not reasonable creatures, not even if they get their ears caught in a harvesting machine accident.

Quote from: Baruch on January 07, 2017, 09:46:03 AMAtheists claim to be reasonable, and theists too. It is a rhetorical stance, like my junk is bigger than your junk. But that argument is just ... junk.Humans aren't very much like Vulcans, we are like Klingons. To which I say, Kplah!
Quote from: Atheon on January 07, 2017, 09:57:37 AMOccam's Razor.There is no evidence for a god; there is no reason to believe in a god; there is no explanatory power in the proposition of the existence of a god.If there is a god, why would he create a world that functions exactly as would be expected if there isn't one, and then hides all evidence of his existence?It just makes more sense that there is no god.
Quote from: Baruch on January 07, 2017, 12:30:32 PMDarwin explains ... we are omnivorous killers and exploiters, who breed. We need to exploit, kill and breed. If you aren't doing that, then you are useless. People who are pacifist, or vegetarian, or who have an overbearing conscience ... are useless.
