3 easy ways to remember God exist.

3 easy ways to remember God exist.
(1) By remembering you can't properly be defined in anywhere but God's vision.
(2) By remembering and seeing he is the Necessary being and hence has to exist and thus does.
(3) By seeing all greatness, beauty, and goodness is from his light and he is the source and that which unifies all beauty, greatness, and goodness.

Oh, will you shut the fuck up.  We have more pressing matters than discussing your imaginary friend.

OK, prove it. Else, I can't believe even if I wanted to engage in those Ohashi-level mental gymnastics.

3 easy ways to remember that the god as depicted in the Abrahamic religions does not exist:

(1) The universe is 93 billion+ light-years long and 13 billion+ years old, and homo sapiens showed up 200,000 years ago, meaning we have existed for just 0.0015% of all history 

(2) For the majority of human history we were primitive hunter gatherers with no notable advancements in technology, and it was only very recently that we began establishing social constructs, cultural norms, and technology that would span centuries to today. 

(3) Reality as we see it through the imperfect lens we call our brain is but a tiny sliver of what is actually present. We see only what we've evolved to perceive. We live in a "middle world" that is only a fraction of what there is.

Any religion that heightens our existence, our experience and our traditions/social constructs to a cosmic level is clearly primitive mythology.

There is no God.  God is not necessary existence and has nothing to do with existence.  Making statements without any evidence to support those claims is so much waste of time and effort. 

"beauty, greatness, and goodness"?

And those lovely and beautiful, parasites, viruses, funguses, bacteria are so good, so great, so beautiful.  How can we doubt God exists when we think of all the lovely things in this world?  Starving children, wars and terrorism, and God's utter absence in face of such evils.

Again, the nature of man argument.

God has three choices if God designs man to create man.

A.  Create man with a bad moral nature.
B.  Create man with  an indifferent moral nature.
C.  Create man with a good moral nature.


We have no free will, our will is constrained by our created moral nature.  Why would a God who is source of all "beauty, greatness and goodness" who must make a choice as to what moral nature mankind, his creation, have, choose anything less than to create man with a good moral nature?

We don't seem to live in such a Universe.  This is proof that God as defined by today's major religions does not exist.

No amount of bluster, and woolly minded statements can solve this conundrum.

I reject all three of your assertions.  You have no valid evidence for even one of them.

Give it a rest, Link.  We just don't believe you, and repeating the same tripe over and over again is not going to change that.

These have been hashed over many times, and every time the theists have been found wanting.

Why would I "remember" any of that? I worry about you Link! You never seem to know where you are or who you are conversing with.

Wow. You have trouble remembering ? Is it drugs or drinking ?
4 fails in 3 bullshit claims. One can't "remember" what one does not accept. Failure to even begin to know your audience. The first rule of argumentation. 

It's "exists" , not "exist". Go get an education. 
1. An assumption you make, and slap onto others. You can't force others to accept your delusions. 
2. If there were a god, it could not both be "necessary" and a god. A real god does not have to submit to your logical systems. Defining a being into existence is a fail. 
3. Your bias. It's also the source of all evil, including infant cancers. You can't possibly be serious. 

Go away you annoying twat. You have nothing to offer here.

(1)  Empty assertion, easily contradicted.
(2)  Empty assertion, easily contradicted.
(3)  Baseless attribution bordering on subjective word salad.

Link, you are not helping your case.  You're just reinforcing the stereotype of theists as people who believe fantastical things without good basis and irritate others by urging those same baseless beliefs upon them.  It's stuff like this that makes us stop listening to theists, because you're just providing further confirmation that you have nothing of value to contribute and that listening to you is just a waste of time.

You're not just failing to convince us with this lackluster, vacuous offering.  You're making it harder for other people to convince us too.  Either up your game or quit ruining it for people who are more competent than you.  You're not just failing to help your team.  You're actually making it harder for your teammates to do the job you're failing at.

To name just one such matter that's more pressing than listening to Link regularly failing to provide a coherent case or even formulate basic strategy... are my idle games going to play themselves?
