    Nobody can say with absolute certainty how the universe came into being and I know of no atheist hellbent on going around trying to tell everyone else that such is the case. Yet we surely have enough preachers hellbent on promoting the idea of the "God theory" as if it were a given.

    However we do have compelling evidence that there was a big bang and scientists are still researching the subject. We also have overwhelming, irrefutable evidence that life is the result of evolution by natural selection.

    I think that the old excuse, "did not witness" argument was poo pooed ages ago by sheer commonsense and logic.
    Forensic detectives do not witness the murders they investigate yet are able to collect enough compelling evidence to convict a murderer..
    Even without fossil and carbon dating evidence (of which there are mountains) we are still able to conclude evolution through natural selection by an overwhelming abundance of existing, live evidence.

    So, anybody is entitled to reasonably assert that there is no such thing as God. Creation (the lynchpin of the existence of God) has been completely overturned and there is no evidence whatsoever of a God, Gods or any other supernatural phenomena. 

    Nobody is entitled to reasonably assert that there is a God and anybody who does say that there is a God is being totally unreasonable.

    What can be said for certain is that if the universe has existence at all, it is only because The Ultimate Reality makes it so.

    The Ultimate Reality is God.

    Dawkins and Hitchens are/were a couple who fervently believed and preached this so-called fact.

    Nobody can say with absolute certainty how things originated but then you make absolute statements about origins.

    Forensics on its own cannot determine an individuals guilt it has to be combined with other types of evidence, for instance all a murderer has to do to confuse forensics is spread all kinds of hair and other contaminents throughout the murder scene.Forensics can never assign guilt to a specific individual.
     What scientists consider to be direct observation to pre-historical events defies common sense and logic.


    So, anybody is entitled to reasonably assert that there is no such thing as God. Creation (the lynchpin of the existence of God) has been completely overturned and there is no evidence whatsoever of a God, Gods or any other supernatural phenomena.


    Science has made many questionable interpretations of the evidence for deep time and many have dared to question these interpretations of the evidence while still remaining staunch evolutionists.

    Nobody is entitled to reasonably assert that there is a God and anybody who does say that there is a God is being totally unreasonable.

    Nobody can reasonably assert that there is no God and anyone who does say there is no God is being totally unreasonable.
    People are entitled to assert whatever they want to actually.

    We also have overwhelming, irrefutable evidence that life is the result of evolution by natural selection.
    Any atheists want to defend this claim?

    This is what happens when technology gives a voice to what are basically ignorant people.
