Does putting a Klan sympathizer at AG put Americans in harms way? Slightly?
Watch The ::God Is Imaginary Videos On YouTube ::
...and how about your fellow humans who are not Americans? Do they count for a little less than humans who are Americans? Are you fine supporting an agenda that removes the chance of your fellow American being in harms way in exchange for adding the chance of your fellow non-American being in harms way?What is wrong with providing food and protection in other countries?
I don't know how much truth is in real danger of Syrian refugee crisis, some say they are dangerous people by showing us examples in Europe and Germany. Maybe it's true or maybe not.
If I know there is a slightest chance that my fellow American could be in harms way, I am not going to support that agenda.(Red = me)
That is not "loving your neighbor".Who qualifies as a 'neighbor', John 3 16?
Failing to find evidence for something, where one reasonably expects to find evidence for it, is itself a form of evidence. For example, when they were testing the Higgs field, they had to perform tests to attempt to produce a Higgs boson, and every time they failed to do so, they were able to exclude certain mass ranges from future consideration. To put it another way, failing to find the Higgs boson at certain mass ranges was evidence that it did not fall within those mass ranges. If they had failed to find it within all expected mass ranges, that would have been pretty solid evidence against its existence (and by extension, the Higgs field).
I suspect the reasoning that strong atheists use regarding gods is something like, "we've looked for gods and failed to find them, which itself is evidence against them existing, therefore I don't believe they exist". I am not a strong atheist, so I don't know for sure, but that stands to reason. So it's not so much a positive claim as it is a stronger negative conclusion.
I agree evidence of absence is evidence to us atheists but it is not evidence to a theist. No amount of science out there is evidence to a theist their gods don't exist. They just tweek it or deny the science.
When a theist says you have no evidence that god does not exist they are asking for objective proof. This is not possible for a negative or default position. They literally want a picture of gods not existing.
Just because I don't agree with you does not make me confused.
True enough. I totally agree with this.
