You can continue on with those questions but eventually you will have to understand that the burden of proof is on the person or group who asserts the claim.

Until that burden is satisfied, your earlier post is fallacious and therefore we don't necessarily worship anything, let alone nature.

Once again, that 'burden of proof' was met (and exceeded) in the first century:

AV, I'm not just trying to bust your butt when I say this, but using the Bible to validate the Bible is one of the silliest things I've heard. Nobody's disputing that the Bible says the Bible is true. Nobody at all.

The problem is meshing the Bible with real life. What are these infallible proofs? How can we test/observe/repeat them? This stuff was 2,000 years ago.

God says the bible is the word of god. The bible says that god is real.

It's called circular reasoning. I'm sure your next post will contain the "proof" you talked about, right?

Our motto is: God said it --- that settles it.

People must think we're kidding when we say that.

Guys, y'all are new around here, so I'll let you in on a little secret: DO NOT argue with AV. Instead, try to figure out whether he is just being ironic.

Regardless, it certainly says something when such stupid comments can be taken seriously. Point being, it is impossible to distinguish between his ironic posts and those of most theists. Interesting in my opinion.
