There's plenty of empirical evidence that points to where this universe came from.
Jason, you are really stretching the bounds of empiricism (far beyond the definition of the scientific method) in an attempt to make you position look correct. But you have still failed to answer the questions I asked above, let alone the OP questions.
You have provided absolutely NO evidence as to where this universe came from or the origins of life (from the atheistic viewpoint) in this posting. Therefore you have called me a liar, and have not backed it up in any way.
Or are things like the observed redshift of stars not empirical enough for you?
The Ã¢â‚¬Å“red shiftÃ¢â‚¬Â only supports a beginning to the universe, Christian theists believe that Jason. That in no way provides evidence as to where this universe came from or the origins of life from the atheistic viewpoint.
I'm sure you also know about the many experiments performed to try and discern the origins of life.
Absolutely Jason, but none of these experiments have provided empirical evidence as to where this universe came from or the origins of life from the atheistic viewpoint.
Such as the Urey Miller experiment.
The Urey Miller experiment fail to provide evidences showing where this universe came from or the origins of life from the atheistic viewpoint for many reasons.
Firstly- where did the chemicals come from?
Secondly- until you answer the first question, ANY additional questions are moot because you first have to have the chemicals in order for the experiment to be conducted. Therefore, without the foundational substances to build the universe, you cannot even begin to build life within said universe. And we know for a fact, using the empirical scientific method, that we have (and have had) existence. This existence is substantive, and yet there are metaphysical and ethereal aspects to our existence that we use to drive the rational of said existence (Thoughts, the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Laws of LogicÃ¢â‚¬Â, altruistic Love, the Ã¢â‚¬Å“Laws of MathematicsÃ¢â‚¬Â etcÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ to name a few). Because we are here, we know we came from somewhere because there is absolutely no evidence of something coming from nothing.
Which brings us right back to the OP questions that you have utterly failed to answer so far: From where did we come (what are our Origins)? What are the atheistic foundations to support the atheistic worldview and philosophy of our origins?
Or are repeatable experimental results not empirical enough for you?
Absolutely Jason; but you have provided no such empirical, observable, repeatable experimental evidences showing where this universe came from or the origins of life from the atheistic viewpoint.
You have equivocated quite well though.
