Your exclamation marks are hilarious.  :lol:

Oh, nothing, I was just talking to myself.

It's just that I "heard" something about you and I'm just wondering if it's true.

I'm sure there are many, ricards, scattered throughout the forums, I was just wondering about Ricardo. "The one who can still be seen in a few other forums under the name of Ricardo and using the same avatar he used here."

"Am I all right ?"
Yes, thank you for asking.

 the atheists' argument that there is a lack of empirical evidence for the existence of god can be refuted by the rationalism argument that everything that exists has an intelligible cause, even if that cause cannot be demonstrated empirically, such as the cause of origin. of the universe. :chin:

Rubbish! If something cannot be demonstrated empirically, then by definition, there is a lack of empirical evidence for it.

In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”

Not 'we' or 'our' or 'the atheist' but 'the atheists'. Take care with your terminology or you'll start looking like a theist troll.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

i believe the rationalism argument is refuted by the problem of induction.

all swans are white, until we see a black one.

what is the argument that demonstrates a cause is a requirement for existence?
may you have the courage to break the patterns in your life that are no longer serving you.
