Someone doens't understand how deductive arguments work:

It means you assert part of your conclusion into your premises.//


That's a feature of logical, deductive arguments.

My response:
"All religions are the same.”

Oh really? Which other religion recognizes that Zeus had a son called Hercules who completed 12 great works?

All religions are indeed the same: They're all nonsense.

All the idiots opposing SSM in Australia:

That is not surprising. Normally (though not always) the people who support gay marriage are far more bigoted than those that are against. If it goes through I would expect that people in business who disagree will be purposely targeted in order to put them out of business.


LGBT members and supporters: Complain that Christians are so hateful in being against same sex marriage.... have no problem shutting their businesses down and calling them bigots which is just as hateful. I love their double standards.


This:
being bigot through peaceful means is very much far better than being rational with offensive character. I mean if bigotry is just not violent then it's the best principal a gentleman can have. Bcoz such bigots lives by faith and doesn't force others to like what is likeable for them, not at least through violence.i will proudly say I am a bigot, my bigotry is love. Bcoz Christ Jesus is love.

Ah, it is the Casimir Effect and the Zero Point Field flavour of Quantum Woo, now abused to explain ensoulment at the moment of conception.

What the. :nono:

How old are you, seriously ? What is exactly my "nothingness", and how can you measure it effectively enough to compare it to any nonsense ?

There is something you clearly didn't understand. I'll leave your nonsense alone for as long as you keep it for yourself. The second you express it, it's open for criticism. That's how it works, whether you like it or not.

Who cares if you believe me. I don't! I have a life to live and I'm not wasting it trying to go over all that I've read, heard, seen, watched, etc. over the last thirty years. It would be a waste of my time and you wouldn't gain anything from it. You don't have take my word for anything I've said, there's a world full of scientific debates just check it out pros and cons. The scientific world is out there in the public domain so if you believe that things are proven or disproved good luck to you.

Do religions claim a Creator who claimed to create this world? The answer is yes. No one said it was proof of anything. Its like asking if the universe have always existed or did it have a beginning. Since there isn't a person today who can have witnessed the event all the theories are in the same boat.

Otherwise present the science.

God Is the Best Explanation For Why Anything At All Exists

No, it isn't. Someone should refer WLC to me. I'd soon put him right, by referring him to my articles in the LQG thread.
Of course, he would only say something to the effect that "I's only a theory".

But you do not even need to present an alternative theory. His entire argument in this video is based on blindly asserting his premises, question begging, the use of tautologies (contigent things require a cause) and other fallacies.
His argument is neither sound nor valid.

Conversely, if the friend in the forest instead told me that the ball was there as a result of the Gawd of Soccer Bawlz (WLC isn't specific as to the type of ball), I would certainly believe my friend and have great faith in the GoSB. I mean, really, just look at all of the evidence. And especially when my friend claims that the GoSB sacrificed his only begotten son, the Great Gawlf Bawl, to forgive the sins of the forest and give each tree eternal life (upon its death). This is, of course, proven in the scriptures, as written by some very influential trees, guided by the hand of the GoSB.
