I work for a company called Trimble (we build asset-tracking GPS systems for heavy highyway equipment, among other things). Our office there is in the Riccarton suburb. They got hit pretty bad.
Havent heard of the place sorry. But if they were in riccarton then they should be going ok( you'l probably know more than me). The main problem is in the CBD where business owners cant even get in to see their building.
Further, this is in fact a far larger problem for the atheists because they are basing all their hope that absolutely nothing happens (i.e. we came from nothing, and are going to nothing); and they have absolutely NO evidence to support their claim. Therefore, the atheist is in for a bigger surprise if something DOES happen!
I almost didnt reply to this because i suspect you know better. As i have said in other posts( im working on my reply on that evolution thread), being atheist doesnt mean you think we came from nothing. The big bang theory proposes the matter was already there, just compressed.
Bad analogy , because your conclusion does not follow the premises (non sequitur). There are many-many eyewitnesses for the actions of Jesus Christ (for example); and there are absolutely NO eyewitnesses for anything that has to do with your fictitious Ã¢â‚¬Å“flying spaghetti monsterÃ¢â‚¬Â (or an orbiting tea pot, or spotted geese on Mars etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦).
DO you have ANY eye witnesses for your fictitious Ã¢â‚¬Å“flying spaghetti monsterÃ¢â‚¬Â?
DO you have ANY eye witnesses that will testify to the actions of your fictitious Ã¢â‚¬Å“flying spaghetti monsterÃ¢â‚¬Â?
DO you have ANY eye witnesses who were willing to die horrendous and torturous deaths instead of recanting their eyewitnesses testimonies supporting your fictitious Ã¢â‚¬Å“flying spaghetti monsterÃ¢â‚¬Â?
HereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s the thing Zendra: your tired and rehashed atheistic argument that attempts to reconcile a Ã¢â‚¬Å“flying spaghetti monsterÃ¢â‚¬Â with the personage of God, fails because it is illogical (just like the orbiting tea pot, or spotted geese on Mars etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦). Whenever the atheist has no real refutation, they trot out the flying spaghetti monster argument.
yes its funny thats the first time i'v actually mentioned the FSM myself.
The point i was making is that Goldliger was asking for proof that a god didn't create the universe etc. I could ask you do you have any proof there isn't a flying spaghetti monster. Would that be fair? Or would it be onto me to provide proof for it?
