You got 60 years to listen?  I am 60 for a few more weeks, and it has taken me that long to sus out all the wisdom and BS in life.


You've figured it all out in only almost 60 years?  Congratulations!  So why haven't you actually demonstrated this understanding so far?  You must be hiding it for a Big Day.

Poor christians. They fail time and time again to realize that this is the same argument we've already heard. Do your home work on popular arguments before repeating the same dried up crap.

I actually sometimes wish for an argument from theists I haven't heard before.  It would be a relief.  Something new would brighten up my day.

One person says, "I don't understand how this works, therefore god did it."
Another person,  "God must have done this, because it's too complicated to understand."

Those are two identical arguments, but each guy thinks he's having an original insight, and then rushes to the nearest atheist forum to totally flabbergast everyone with what has to be overwhelming evidence of the unknown.

But there isn't any evidence for the unknown, because, well..., it's unknown.

there can be evidence for the unknown, if I know something that you don't. a little game of insider trading.

Drive by religion can't be dodos. The dodos are all gone. Drive by religions are still here.... Maybe they are so stupid we can beat them to death, but ya haven't beaten them yet

There can always be new information to cause science to change.  It is revisionist by nature.  As opposed to changing theistic beliefs which really do have to be bludgeoned before they disappear.

I actually delight in the idea that theists will gather around one theistic deity someday.  Assuming they don't decide/manage to kill us all to prove the power of their deity first, then when THAT one is finally set aside we might actually be free of the whole horrible concept.
