"How many scientists have created something out of nothing? Zero? Not even a stick of juicy fruit gum?"
Most gum today is made of a synthetic rubber known as polyisobutylene, which is an artificial product. You know, artificial. Like man-made.

How many eye witnesses do you have for god creating a universe out of nothing?
If you cite the bible as a source of your knowledge about the creation of the universe, you could as well cite the Silmarillion. They seem to be both equal trustworthy in this regards ... with the bonus of the Silmarillion however being, that it has elves in it

You get out what you put in, cgray.

Your god is the one who's supposed to create stuff out of nothing. You provide evidence for that, m'kay?
Moral and decent as believers? Scott Roeder is moral and decent, is he? Kent Hovind is moral and decent? Timothy McVeigh was moral and decent?
I think I'd rather be an asshole then, thank you.
@ Eden, I bet the Silmarillion has fewer contradictions than the Bible.

How many believers have prayed something into existence out of nothing? Zero? Not even a stick of Juicy Fruit® gum (and it is a trademark)?
If atheists are just as capable of being as moral and decent as believers, how come the Bishop of Bruges -- um, never mind.

Why are prisons filled with God-fearing bible-believing felons?

If christianists are just as capable of being as moral and decent as believers, how come they all seem to be on the wrong side of the prison bars?

Wait...did he just call Phil Plait an asshole? Phil is one of the most mild mannered guys in skepticism.

1. One who eschews faith for proof and backs me into a corner when I don't have any.
2. The vast orifice from which God is alleged to have pulled the Universe.

Ah! I see. A difference of perception. Generally, most atheists' perception, and most religionists perception, is influenced by fellow feeling for, and a tolerance of, others. As well as a certain curiosity, expressed by the the need for knowledge, the pleasure of discovery, science, education and truth, in so far as it is discernible. And also the desire for self-expression, often by artistic means. These things are enjoyed just as much by religious people as they are by atheists, with the possible exception of fundamental cultists.
The fundamental cultists' perception seems to be tinged by a kind of slewed view of themselves, other people and their relation to them and the universe in general. A view brought about mainly through doctrinaire means. A view based on a rabid collection of inapplicable ancient horror texts which are read mostly in translation and relate the adventures of an unlikely supernatural deity and the ignorant savages He is supposed to have made from dirt. A recipe for deranged thinking and abhorrent behaviour if ever there was one.
Edit: 2nd para, 1st line should be skewed and not slewed.

It's amoral to be an asshole now?
4/26/2010 6:33:54 AM
Kid, you probably have never seen what my scientists can do.
4/26/2010 6:50:56 AM
The only insufferable assholes I ever run into are faith-heads persistently intent on saving my non-existent immortal soul.
4/26/2010 6:52:35 AM
Maybe because they have christians shoving religion down their throats. Oh and Atheists have created many things from chemicals to technology.
4/26/2010 7:21:59 AM
The universe didn't come from nothing; it came from energy.
4/26/2010 7:30:22 AM
Funny, you sound like the one who's insufferable.
4/26/2010 7:43:43 AM
Whenever someone replaces the letter 'S' with a dollar sign, I disregard everything they say.
4/26/2010 7:45:12 AM
I bet the Silmarillion has fewer contradictions than the Bible.
Shit, the stories of Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill and Davy Crockett have less.
4/26/2010 7:59:41 AM
Aw did someone hurt da widdle bible thumper's feewings? You just sit right there dear while I call the whaambulance.
BTW someone disagreeing with you does not make them an asshole. You fundies and your infinite stupidity bring out the asshole in all of us. You should listen to yourselves sometime. It's excruciating.
4/26/2010 8:15:29 AM
Science has no need to make Juicy Fruit, we've already made Big Red.
So fuck you!
4/26/2010 8:19:42 AM
One needn't have created a thing to explain the way it works.
4/26/2010 8:27:33 AM
"If atheists are just as capable of being as moral and decent as believers, how come they all seem to be insufferable a$$holes like you, Phil?"
You mean like the believers who kill doctors, hate on gays, and demonstrate against Congress when they try to give health care to the poor?
4/26/2010 8:30:18 AM
Yes, please, leave us sophisticated intellectuals alone so we need not trifle with your stupidity any longer. Furthermore, nobody has ever created anything out of nothing, because there's no evidence that there was ever a time when there was nothing. Even the Big Bang originated from something (a singularity). P.S.--If believers are so moral and decent, how come they all seem to be insufferable assholes like you, cgray?
4/26/2010 8:30:42 AM
Amazing that you, however, enjoy so much this computer made, to you, out of nothing, eh?
