Subject: RE: BS: Unfit for SCOTUS
The "believer" is not obliged to provide evidence Riah, whereas you and other evolutionists are.
On the contrary, the onus is entirely on the believer to provide evidence contrary to that provided by observable, empirical common Godless reality. Of course they can't, other than their entrenched delusion that reality, and everything in it, is the work of their God that news no proof and can be accounted for by the events in an allegorical misanthropic & misognistic folk tale.
In this sort of discussion, strength, weakness, evidence, become meaningless as there will never be ultimate proof.
On the contrary, the proof is in the reality our very existence. It is everywhere and in everything. It is the cause of multidiscipline scientific thought the whole word over and is the reality in which we all share whether we choose to believe it or not. It's name is Nature; and Nature, unlike God, is self-evident and needs no creator. Indeed, we do both it and ourselves great disservice by giving it one, however picturesque the creation myths that have come down to us might be.
It's whatever makes you happy free from fear, and a contributor to the greater good which really matters.
On the contrary, because the fundamentalist believes in a very different reality to the actual one and persists in the absolute conviction that their delusion is correct, however so contrary to, and in denial of, all objective empirical commonality. Fundamentalism engenders fear - it is rooted in a cause that will forever run contrary to the common good by a denial of that which is common to us all. The root of fundamentalist faith is fear of the greater good from which they elect to exempt themselves in the promotion of lies as truth, anti-science as science, and folkloric allegory as absolute literal law.
