It's just a butchering of the english language. On another note, I never see
any comment being done on the belief that the universe has always existed in some form or another which leads me to believe this is just another "bait" thread gone wrong. The expected responce was: "It came out of nowhere and for no reason" but instead most people answered "I don't know". What ensues is a torrent of babble with the words "logical" and "rational" sprinkled around to hide the lack of coherence.

Another thing to note is the use of the word creator(*wink*wink* the christian god*wink*wink*). It's a poor attempt at misleading people since it avoids having to answer why their god of choice as opposed to any other possible definition for god.

Seriously, this is food for thought. This devastating attack on atheism you think you have stumbled on may not be as airtight as you think.
You forgot the permutations of everyone else has a closed mind/too much pride/too indulgent in moral decay which is why they don't see it or refuse to acknowledge it.

I have never claimed to be the sharpest tool in the shed. But I am willing to look at things with an open, rational mind. I can't say that for the atheists on this board.

I'm sorry...in my experience you guys are just irrational. That's true with most internet message board atheists I've obseved.

What exactly is the logic of a supernatural? Please explain. May be we, atheists, are too dumb to understand.

Then you stated this:

Generic Atheist: Show us scientific proof of your claims, and we'll be happy to consider them.

kdbrich: God did it, there's no other possible way!

Generic Atheist: Okay, so where's your proof?

kdbrich: You're irrational and closed-minded! God did it, it's obvious.

Generic Atheist: Facts? Logic? Proof? Please show them to us so that we may study and consider them.

kdbrich: Duh, it's supernatural. Why can't you all be as open-minded and rational as I am?
