Need nothing be created. It's nothing. Either nothing is something, or nothing is nothing and so needs no beginning.

I just watched a video in which Lawrence Krauss argues that the universe didn't require anything to exist before. It's well worth watching, and explains that science can allow a universe to come from nothing.

How can your God create something in his image if he has no physical form?

But why then can be not apply the same standards to the IPU's hooves? Perhaps the IPU has not physical form.

So am I to accept that the IPU isn't allowed to have hooves outside of the material universe, but Yahweh can have a form outside of the material universe. Considering that we are supposedly made in the image of God; surely God must have feet.

Abiogenesis followed by gradual evolution.

And that's just one short string. Now imagine a string of letters, numbers and, punctuation with infinite length. Within such a string, there will be contained the entire works of Shakespeare, Tolstoy, and every book every written, along with all of the text on the internet. Now, does that require an intelligence to have made it for it to exist?

People who curiously play around with Ouija boards or dabble in spiritism you will soon find out it is NOT a benign active nor is it only circumstance and expectation affecting the subconscious. It opens up spiritual door ways and predisposes people to demonic harassment.

Always making claims, never providing evidence to support them.

The ideomotor effect is well documented: http://www.skepdic.com/ideomotor.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ideomotor_effect

Take a piece of cotton and tie it to a washer or a nut, or something with a similar mass. Hold this pendulum out at arms length in front of you with one hand. Watch the pendulum. It will begin to circle. Please try this little experiment, it is a brilliant example of the ideomotor effect.

I don't think that anyone can. Ever. Not even the author.

Tax returns and plays both have very clear explicit instructions; the Bible doesn't seem to come with a list that says whether or not it applies to me.

Let us take an example, Leviticus 20:13: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them." If you don't need to carry this out, why not? How can you tell?
