Hi, sorry I've been away for a while.

So, the question remains, are any of you someone who wants there to be a creator but just can't find any evidence that one exists so you are forced to be an atheist?

You have 8 posts, who cares?

You have 8 good posts out of about 10,000. You're practically forum equals.

Yet 179 plus in karma. Must be 8 of the best posts ever.

You made a snotty response, I thought I'd respond with one you might actually find amusing. It's not easy trying to work out what you do and don't find amusing.

TMI, and keep it in your pants.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

What I want is absolutely irrelevant. Either there is a creator or there isn't. I assume there isn't. Others, anxious for specific outcomes, appear to imagine that one exists.

If I was powerful enough to make that decision for the entire universe, I'd go with the status quo. Someone with all the answers would be too hard to deal with.
What I lack in sophistication I make up for with other shortcomings.
