Maybe I am but again I haven't actually said what I believe to be true when it comes to how "something" first appeared, in fact I don't know the answer. If you personally are content to leave it at that then you probably have nothing else to add here. Me? I'm curious.

A man-made bullsh**t came to the scene first (in the image of a bearded single white shemale floating in the sky), then s/he made everything.

Don't take my words out of context. Saying you don't know until more is known is not "being content". It's being logical. Just making up explanations so you can feel comfortable is not a good line of thinking at all. It is that sort of reasoning that birthed religion in the first place.

Yeah. Good post, I can go for this. As for Bud235 do you really believe in a white bearded he/she? That's awesome.

Anyway I'm done in this forum already. Seems a bit strange that people who have no religious beliefs spend so long talking about it. I'm off to do something else. Have fun all!!!!

This operates under the assumption that you know what people are doing all day. I only come here when I have to do something computer related that's really boring.

It didn't. There is no such thing as an ex nihilo creation.

Or people who won't think of some condescending statement to say to the posters just because their arguments were refuted without effort.
