Many different topics have been discussed in these 85 pages, some of them barely related to question of whether God exists (for example, the evolution of color vision). Also, many questions and topics keep getting repeated, mainly because they don't get an adequate response the first time. Frankly, this thread is just one massive amalgam of tangentially related topics all sown together by the tenuous thread of whether God exists.


Oh... in that case...

What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything?


And don't link to the Google calc. =D

I'm only resurrecting this thread because I found this awesome 30 minute video by Richard Dawkins: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/113

Here is the summary the website gives for the video:
---
The session was titled "The Design of Life," and the TED audience was probably expecting remarks about evolution's role in our history from biologist Richard Dawkins. Instead, he launched into a full-on appeal for atheists to make public their beliefs and to aggressively fight the incursion of religion into politics and education. Scientists and intellectuals hold very different beliefs about God from the American public, he says, yet they are cowed by the overall political environment. Dawkins' scornful tone drew strongly mixed reactions from the audience; some stood and applauded his courage. Others wondered whether his strident approach could do more harm than good. Dawkins went on to publish The God Delusion and become perhaps the world's best-known atheist.
---

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! I think it's something theists and atheists should both watch, if only to be familiar with theistic arguments.

But I guess the rather disrespectful picture posted above already gave you a clue.


My God has a sense of humor.

Should be determining fact not truth. Philosophy deals with truth, science deals with fact.

Why are people arguing on this issue? God gave us all free will so we can believe what we'd like.
