In addition to what you wrote, FSM and IPU lack legit credible historical evidence for their existence, not to mention we have more than enough evidence that states they were made up as parodies of religion.
I'm going to go waaaay off topic for a moment and say that the murder of Tiller the late term abortionists killing yesterday does cause me to face a conundrum. I am an atheist but I detest late term abortion, and I hate murder but, hey, I understand the killer's rational. When I heard he was killed in a church I imediately assumed the killed doctor was in an Episcopal or Lutheran church.
OK, you've convinced me, Mariano. The FSM is different from the biblical creation myth. The former is a joke, so the latter must be a delusion.
I'm beginning to think that Mariano has suckered us all in with an example of Poe's Law. http://rationalwiki.com/wiki/Poe%27s_Law
Mariano,I love you. I really really do.
Animated Pasta that resists gravity has little to do with an Uncaused Cause.
Yes, exactly like god.
You set yourself up for that one Yuckoff. You're always good for a couple of yucks, I'm glad we live in different cities. You're dumb aren't you?
In addition to what you wrote, God, Zeus and the Trimuti lack legit credible historical evidence for their existence, not to mention we have more than enough evidence that states they were made up as religions.
Oh Baby Huey, with your adorable da Vinci Code conspiracies. Given enough time and the same investigative yardstick, we'll be debating about whether or not Stephen Jay Gould was a Homeric mythical figure, comprising of several authors who wrote an apologia for a crumbling atheist faith well after the 20th Century.
UnBeguiled,I love you as well and very much so.aDios,Mariano .
Again, posting main body of comment externally to allow more formatting control.My comment is essentially a clarification on the use of the FSM with numerous examples drawn from your post.
B.A.,Thanks for emphasizing the importance of term clarification, particularly the blatant equivocation of 'universe' that seems a major weapon in the apologist's armamentarium. I have attempted to make this important point myself, by resorting to neologisms forcing the apologist's hand. Nevertheless, they just don't get it. Mariano seems to think shifting the meaning of a word mid-argument is legitimate. I'm not sure how to convince him otherwise.
So does having an evolutionist play-doh from the primordial past just magically and impossibly morphing into wonderful and terrifying shapes of beings from bats to humans, how refreshing!Tu quo que to all the Pastafarians out there
