    Though I don't know that the quotes really strengthen your argument really Whacked you can find just as many quotes about atheism from brilliant minds. I mean this is the big problem of philosophy and has been for a long time. A lot of people have said smart stuff on both sides.

    "The deepest sin against the human mind is to believe things without evidence. Science is simply common sense at its best -- that is, rigidly accurate in observation, and merciless to fallacy in logic."

    Thomas Henry Huxley.
    I think the trouble with this particular philosophical debate is that people start slinging rocks and calling names. The bottom line is none of us will truly know until we know. Until then we should just try to get along. I will have to say that this thread(though no longer about green coffee bean extract lol) seems to have for the most part retained its civility. That is a good thing.

  2. lmao @ a theist getting offended (by a sarcastic tongue-in-cheek comment) enough to derail an informative thread into a pompous justification for his religion. I guess this thread is dead now, good while it lasted.

    Abstract

    Our previous study revealed the antihypertensive effects of green coffee bean extract (GCE) ingestion in spontaneously hypertensive rats. We suggested that this antihypertensive action was due to the fact that GCE contains chlorogenic acid (CQA) as a major phenolic compound, and CQA in turn contains ferulic acid as a metabolic component that acts on nitric oxide (NO) derived from the vascular endothelium. In this study, the effects of GCE on blood vessels were evaluated in healthy males. The subjects were 20 healthy males with reduced vasodilation responses measured by strain gauge plethysmograms (SPG) to ischemic reactive hyperemia. Of the 20 subjects, 10 (mean age, 37.2 years) ingested a test drink containing GCE (CQA: 140 mg/day), and the other 10 (mean age, 34.8 years) ingested a placebo drink for 4 months. During the ingestion period, SPG, pulse wave velocity (PWV), and serum biochemical parameters were measured, and acceleration plethysmograms (APG) were taken. The reactive hyperemia ratio (RHR) in the test drink group began to increase after ingestion for 1 month and was significantly higher (p <0.05) than that in the placebo group after ingestion for 3 months and 4 months. In addition, after ingestion for 4 months, the test drink group showed a significant decrease (p <0.01) in the plasma total homocysteine level compared with the pre-ingestion level. However, there were no significant differences in PWV or APG between the test drink group and the placebo drink group. The improvement in RHR after ingestion of a drink containing GCE suggested an improvement in vasoreactivity by this component.

    Abstract

    CONTEXT:

    Intercessory prayer (praying for others) has been a common response to sickness for millennia, but it has received little scientific attention. The positive findings of a previous controlled trial of intercessory prayer have yet to be replicated.
    OBJECTIVE:

    To determine whether remote, intercessory prayer for hospitalized, cardiac patients will reduce overall adverse events and length of stay.
    DESIGN:

    Randomized, controlled, double-blind, prospective, parallel-group trial.
    SETTING:

    Private, university-associated hospital.
    PATIENTS:

    Nine hundred ninety consecutive patients who were newly admitted to the coronary care unit (CCU).
    INTERVENTION:

    At the time of admission, patients were randomized to receive remote, intercessory prayer (prayer group) or not (usual care group). The first names of patients in the prayer group were given to a team of outside intercessors who prayed for them daily for 4 weeks. Patients were unaware that they were being prayed for, and the intercessors did not know and never met the patients.
    MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES:

    The medical course from CCU admission to hospital discharge was summarized in a CCU course score derived from blinded, retrospective chart review.
    RESULTS:

    Compared with the usual care group (n = 524), the prayer group (n = 466) had lower mean +/- SEM weighted (6.35 +/- 0.26 vs 7.13 +/- 0.27; P=.04) and unweighted (2.7 +/- 0.1 vs 3.0 +/- 0.1; P=.04) CCU course scores. Lengths of CCU and hospital stays were not different.
    CONCLUSIONS:

    Remote, intercessory prayer was associated with lower CCU course scores. This result suggests that prayer may be an effective adjunct to standard medical care.

    On a serious note, I can appreciate yours and the perspective Pat just relayed as well. It's the convicted Atheists adamant that there is no God that get to me. Like, how can you be so sure, where is the proof? Many of these cats aren't like the Pat Arnold's of the world so science is NOT what they are even hanging their hats on! It's more like a misplaced, pure disdain for the very thought a "GOD". Let me explain...

    Look, I've met many of these types and the vast majority base their views on supercharged anger and/or having a run of bad luck/life occurrences and they need a scapegoat. They are bitter and vengeful. By denouncing God, they feel they are getting even or something LOL

    they are like those vegan types that condemn meat as being deadly and believe that non-organic grown foods are evil.

    The burden of proof doesnt fall on the atheists but on the religious ones making the existence of god claims. The burden always lies on those who are making the claims. Problem is there is no proof. It all is about having blind faith, which is why you cant really have a debate about his existence or not. Its either or believe or dont.
    but atheists say god doesnt exist definitively. that is a claim. its different than saying there is no evidence for the existence of a god

  13. Not sure who you are referring to as I have yet to see ONE disrespectful comment casted by anyone anywhere. This thread has remained as respectful and civil the entire time and amongst good dudes that all get along outside of our religious differences.

    FWIW: It's posts like yours that stir the pot.

    Be well.

    Once you try it though, you will understand.

    For me, it is a FACT that chocolate is yummy; despite this lacking "scientific" fact.

    Where's my proof? In my heart and soul. I get happy and all my problems go away when I am eating chocolate.

    Can a scientist prove chocolate is delish? Nope.

    Does that mean it's not? Nope

    Is chocolate for everyone? Nope. But for the vast majority of us, it's pure undeniable bliss.

    Sounds ridiculously elementary (and it is), but it keeps it simple and seems to help them understand and we always get a good laugh out of the pathetic analogy.

    I thought I'd add a little levity to this thread since these threads never ever end well.

    PS: Geo: What's with the mask? LMAO

    the good taste of chocolate can be pretty adequately explained by biology and the influence of natural selection on what we find tasty and not tasty. god didnt grant us the ability to like the taste of certain foods, they were acquired over eons

    And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else's. But if their thoughts - i.e., Materialism and Astronomy - are mere accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It's like expecting the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milk-jug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset. -CS Lewis


    Someone once said that if you sat a million monkeys at a million typewriters for a million years, one of them would eventually type out all of Hamlet by chance. But when we find the text of Hamlet, we don't wonder whether it came from chance and monkeys. Why then does the atheist use that incredibly improbable explanation for the universe? Clearly, because it is his only chance of remaining an atheist. At this point we need a psychological explanation of the atheist rather than a logical explanation of the universe. -Peter Kreeft


    nothing you say supports the use of religion as an explanation for things that man has yet to adequately explain. YOu simply point at things that we dont yet understand and say "look!! loook!! science has failed so this has to be god!!"

    they used to think solar eclipses were an act of god too

    I think that the issue that we have with the whole something out of nothing is that we are linear beings with a start and a finish so we look at things a beginning and an end, I think the universe is circular, there is neither a begining nor an end there just "is" I think that is what we cannot wrap our heads around

  19. I am an atheist; I know that what I will experience after death will be the same as what I experienced before life.

  20. Please explain where this unwavering committed conviction of thought comes from. You are afterall, basing your eternity on it (if there is such a thing right? What if there is?).

    You seem to know something the greatest scientists in the world have yet to be able to provide proof of. In an effort to keep the thread fair, Theists have not been able to prove their point either.

    More of a hope of mine I guess. All the things I enjoy doing on Earth seem to be forbidden in Heaven. Plus, if things last forever, they become less pleasurable. Most of what we enjoy in our lives derives from the knowledge that it will one day end. Tell me of one species on Earth that resurrects when it dies; if you can't, I feel safe to assume there is a universal finality. My atheistic mindset provides me with more pleasure than indentured servitude to religion would. I feel that this is my one shot at life, and there will be no other; therefore I should make the most out of it while I still can.

    My distrust of religion and worship of science can be summed up by a couple examples. Religious-minded (influenced? dominated?) politicians who reject climate change outright or worse, accept it as "God's will," do more damage to me and the lives of our planet's inhabitants than a scientist looking to reverse the trend. Contrary to popular belief, not everyone is awaiting the Rapture or End Times. That can happen after I die.

    My second example is Noah's ark: apparently he brought two of every creature on board his ark; even those we are still discovering to this day. That would make him one of the first to visit North America and the Western Hemisphere. Now if you say that this is a metaphor or parable, then what else is in the Bible that we must also treat as metaphor? And what can we then ascribe as the word of God? And which God? The xenophobic, racist, homophobic, bloodthirsty, jealous deity of the Old Testament, or the Santa Claus version presented in the New Testament? I reject the Bible and its teachings on these merits and similar (numerous) other examples.

    I don't mind discussing my viewpoint with others, and I appreciate the respectful tone with which you've responded throughout the thread. I won't post any more religious replies in this thread; not because I don't want to discuss it, but rather because this isn't the appropriate thread with which to do so.

    then there is the camp which believes there are an infinite number of universes with infinite possible outcomes

    i think that reality may be so complex that it is impossible to grasp. either that or the world was made in 7 days and woman was made from the rib of a man. yeah, thats more plausible

    my hope is that there is an existence after death. and i hope its a place much different than earth cuz it would totally suck if it was the same

    its all hope though, as any evidence towards that is not scientific but merely anecdotal (life after death stories, ghosts, messages from beyond). Of course, by nature it would be hard to find the scientific evidence cuz the dead cant testify
