I'm still unclear on exactly what that is, but I still don't believe in magic. Also you have given me no reason to believe that you are willing to research any topic to such a degree that you understand its underlying principles. One of the things atheists and theists have in common is a total lack of evidence for any potential cause of the beginning of the universe or even that there necessarily was one.do you know what we call an explanation with absolutely no supporting evidence? We call it conjecture.

Insert whatever. I inserted magic nothing for you.

Maybe you do if you don't believe in an unmoved first mover, namely God.

Irrelavent and subtly ad hominem.

Perhaps. Unless I have evidence.

This is not In keeping with my claims or beliefs. My claim is only that there is no sufficient evidence for or against any cause for the universe if indeed thete was one. With the information we have all we can do is speculate.

but I still don't believe in magic.::

Maybe you do if you don't believe in an unmoved first mover, namely God.

The first mover argument does not distinguish between some monotheistic god, the titans, the Egyptian god Ra, the flying spaghetti monster, or indeed some magical nothing like the one you have concocted so that you can falsely claim that it is what atheists believe unless you commit a black and white fallacy.
Also you have given me no reason to believe that you are willing to research any topic to such a degree that you understand its underlying principles.::

Irrelavent and subtly ad hominem.

No ad hominem attack was meant it is only that Mongolia has already claimed to not care about the contents of the claim the is debating against. If that is the case here, for either of you then this is largely going to be unproductive until you understand some basics of cosmology, whether you believe in modern cosmology or not. That being the case I invite either of you to tell me exactly what you think the big bang theory actually states and we can go from there.

One of the things atheists and theists have in common is a total lack of evidence for any potential cause of the beginning of the universe or even that there necessarily was one.::

Perhaps. Unless I have evidence.

I would be interested in seeing any evidence beyond anecdotal or third party testimony. In particular peer reviewed work will be well recieved.

do you know what we call an explanation with absolutely no supporting evidence? We call it conjecture.::

http://www.debate.org...

You have referenced this debate more than once, do You have something that is not anecdotal in nature? Why exactly do you even feel that this is a good peice of evidence?

Exactly.
And the chicken will then continue to run around like its head was chopped off pretending that there is something.
