Science and/or math.

You should try it sometime. It beats the hell out of being wrong.

Science relies on your senses and reason. How do you know yours are valid?

No, not mine alone. Science is reproducible.

Shut up.

It's funny how people on the Left always quote science when it comes to insulting the Christian faith, but when it comes to the science of biology, they become political correct cult members and preach to us how LGBT issues are natural and normal REGARDLESS what the science of biology teaches us about the design of our bodies and the natural roles of men and women.

Spoken like someone who, in the 21st century, is still somehow unaware that homosexuality is biological. Absolutely fascinating. I thought smallpox had wiped the last of you guys out by the mid 1800s.

Would you be open to being studied?

Hello V

We can't.. But, if you mean right from wrong, that's easy.

Humans are civilized.. We couldn't BE civilized if we didn't know how to get along with each other.. I dunno WHERE the notion of civilization comes from.. Maybe it's in our DNA.

But, if you need a book to tell you how to behave, I'm not gonna tell you you're wrong..

Oh? So what is your opinion on mobbing and running women out of restaurants?

Humans and pre humans ate each other for food.

Right. You seen the current meltdown of the left?

Did this fool just tell me he has no idea what truth is and is not and then make a bunch of truth claims? Atheists are mentally ill.

Yes. But he did it with his pink suit and dunce cap on, so obviously it isn't fair to debate him without your arms tied behind your back and a blindfold on.

If he'd have meant that then he'd presumably have said that. Stop changing other people's arguments before you respond to them you gigantic dick. That isn't debate. That's just being a dick.

Humans are civilized..

Wtf? That's a sweeping generalisation which does not hold true across the majority of the planet. If humans were civilised then they wouldn't need law or the threat of punishment to force them to act civilised.

I dunno WHERE the notion of civilization comes from.. Maybe it's in our DNA.

Yeah, but you're an ignorant retard who thinks everything is in our DNA, including our future religious beliefs.

But, if you need a book to tell you how to behave, I'm not gonna tell you you're wrong..

Maybe they need a book to tell them how to behave, but you need a jail sentence.

How much of a grip on reality does someone have who thinks there's an invisible giant in the sky watching over him? An all powerful giant God who created the entire universe but is afraid to be seen. That whole thing makes SO much sense.

LOL!

What kind of low IQ'd mind thinks life comes from nobody...

Atheists don't believe "life comes from nobody". They believe one should refrain from making bizarre and irrational assumptions about where life came from.

What kind of low IQ IDIOT can't have a debate without intentionally misrepresenting his opponent's beliefs?

I don't know truth from fiction for sure.

I base my beliefs on science and reason, but at the end of the day I can never be absolutely sure my beliefs are true.

May I ask how you rationally know truth from fiction?

Then you cannot know what you base your beliefs on. Thanks for proving atheists are irrational.

A fact is based on truth. Unlike fiction, a fact is a true incident , we can fully investigate and evaluate a fact any denial of what’s factual doesn’t make it fiction it just makes us wrong .

If you tell me there is a beautiful vase on the table but it cannot be seen , touched or hold flowers well then you are deluded even if several people agree with you , believers in supernatural entities take part in this absurd pantomime for their entire lifetimes and deem themselves perfect judges of what fact /fiction really are , pretty funny really

So your position is truth can be known through the senses and reason, which is funny given that you senses and reason did not tell you that. But putting aside the gapping hole of irrational inconsistency in your epistemology, tell me how you know your senses and reason are valid?

Putting aside the fact that you still can't spell words correctly despite having an online thesaurus open on your machine, you're still CRAZY, WRONG and STUPID!

tell me how you know your senses and reason are valid?

Well, idiot, if my senses aren't valid then that debunks your moronic religion, doesn't it? If God created me in his image and I have flawed senses then that too means God has flawed senses. Hence, he/she is not God.

Congratulations on disproving your own quasi-philosophy you big dummy.

If my God is The Truth, does the atheist deny the existence of my God?
