Not one of these atheist origin of the universe mythologies is supported by current scientific evidence.

Not one of them is supported by anything other than undiluted speculation.

Yet each and every one of them is acceptable to atheists and they are acceptable for only one reason.

They avoid the need for a Creator.

Your God of the Gaps is getting smaller and smaller with each scientific discovery.

===============

1) Your god is a supernatural being; it is a spirit, with absolutely no evidence to support its existence.

2) All supernatural beings are created by, and exist only in, human imaginations; there is no natural or supernatural process known to science which can create them or a place for them to exist.

3) Therefore your god was created by, and exists only in, human imaginations.

===============

1) Physical matter is not created by conscious minds; there is no conscious process known to science that creates physical matter.

2) Therefore the physical universe was not created by a conscious mind.

The more times you repost something the truer it gets. Everyone knows that!

Being atheists doesn't mean that we believe in any specific theory(ies) on the origin of the Universe."

As an atheist it's not that I don't believe in this or that theory. It's that I'm a non believer in this or that theory :-)

Actually, I think it needs to be sent to committee for the next two or three years.

What definition of the word "evidence" are you using? Eyewitness testimony? Historical documents? What?

All supernatural beings are created by, and exist only in, human imaginations

Presupposition or conclusion?

there is no natural or supernatural process known to science which can create them or a place for them to exist

Being that they are supernatural by definition, how could science "create" them and why would that be necessary in the first place?

Therefore your god was created by, and exists only in, human imaginations

Faulty conclusion based on faulty premises.


Physical matter is not created by conscious minds; there is no conscious process known to science that creates physical matter

And therein lies the rub, doesnt it? In the Judeo-Christian tradition, God created the universe. This is only illogical if you work from the presupposition that God is a creature like you or I and the Bible clearly states that He is not.

Hey JD, Christ Follower is just parodying Makarios.
Around the third time he pasted it, CF asked Makarios to identify the logical fallacies in these arguments (the same fallacies Makarios was committing).
He's also parodying Makarios' cut and paste of arguments that have already been answered. CF even says in this thread:
"The more times you repost something the truer it gets. Everyone knows that!"

You've misread that.
No process, natural or supernatural, that is known to science, that can create them.
