Well I am sure of 3:16 but after reading this link there can be no more atheists.

Here, I draw theists and atheists hierarchy charts again on their fundamental philosophical differences (you'll be the judge if I negatively misrepresented any side):

Theists: Brain (God's) ==> Universe
Atheists: Universe ==> Brain

These differences are essentially the differences between Idealism versus Materialism.

Being an atheist, I believe the universe existed before humans and their brains. There is no God nor God's brain. The universe will out last humans.
I think this guys' got a realistic approach as well!

Oh, yeah, evets, that was some pretty heavy stuff. Actually, we had a thread that talked about this very same event recently and I can honestly tell you that I was not moved by the spirit to think that this was a real event. It just blows me away that you think that you're presenting evidence that God is real because you're pointing us to this website. I'm sorry but it's ridiculous.

i still feel the universe is driven by intelligence, but my time spent on CDF does test my conviction.
occasionally i see bright flashes of intelligence, that keeps me going.

All the ignorance concerning intelligence is designed.

i believe it was created but not by the God of the Bible, and perhaps it can't be considered a God. I think I believe more in Spinoza's God or in Brahman. Not one that interacts with mankind.


“I believe in Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the orderly harmony of what exists, not in a God who concerns himself with fates and actions of human beings” Einstein
