Perhaps if you scribbled your bullshit on pizza it would be more digestible.

Oh fuck, I forgot about the dark energy.

When you're presenting a magical story that doesn't line up with reality, and you have to create another magical story to explain why that is, maybe you need to have a rethink.

RE: A challenge for any Atheist who been here for a long time!
I happily take up the OP's challenge. I'm in the process of getting all of his arguments together into several volumes, which I shall publish here first. Then I will publish an equally voluminous response. Just give me a little time; think of the scope of the first volume as the Encyclopedia Americana, and the second as the Encyclopedia Britannica. Then, I'm going to start a Wiki-sized website wherein I shall publish various excerpts of the volumes along with colorful pictures and diagrams in order to aid readers along with more accessible and engaging content for when you all need a break from the heady intellectual stuff (I do like funny cat pictures and I hope you do too!).

So just hang in there OP; I'm all over this.

No mockery please and no strawman either for jokes.

Why bother? You don't demonstrate any comprehension of counter-arguments, yet you ask for such a demonstration regarding your own?

My dad used to say, "You've got two ears and one mouth for a reason, use 'em in that order."

And to that I'll add, exemplify the behavior you wish to see.

Can't help you out, MK. As you may remember I don't engage in or have much respect for debate as such. In applying the law an adversarial system may be the best we can do. But I'll never believe that is true for determining the truth of propositions or the simple exchange of ideas.

What I always liked best about you MK is the way you kept aware of your own ambivalence regarding the strength of your own arguments. That's what we all need to do and why I see no benefit to debate intellectually. Now you seem desperate to have someone represent one side so that you can go full bore on the other. You're better than that old buddy.
Belief .. is the insistence that the truth is what one would .. wish it to be. The believer will open his mind to the truth on the condition that it fits in with his preconceived ideas and wishes. 


Faith, on the other hand, is an unreserved opening of the mind to the truth, whatever it may turn out to be.
