    God is "an" explanation for reality. As for if god is a "reasonable" explanation I think the jury is still in deliberation.

    Really?

    The universe exists.

    I accept that it exists without any further explanation.

    Does that make me irrational?

    Ok, I give up. What's your point? 4+4=8 therefore god exists?

    AGAIN, would you agree with this statement:

    "Everything that is had a beginning?"

    It has nothing at all to do with being smug. But, hey, leave it to a Christian to cast stones.

    Irrelevant.

    I don't reach into a sack and grab the first apple I touch. God is no more the answer to "Life, the Universe, and Everything" than any other explanation. If you want to waste your time on "god" be my guest.

    I am under no obligation to prove a negative.

    Incorrect. A "personal god" is one of an almost infinite number of explanations of reality.

    Don't know... Don't care. I've been told matter can neither be created nor destroyed... Is matter "god" since they both appear to have similar attributes?

    Prove it.

    It's laughable how Christians demand to have it both ways, ie:

    "Everything that is (except their god) had a creator."

    How is a medical textbook a "trashy novel?"

    There is? Either prove pink unicorns and spaghetti monsters don't exist or that the Christian god does exist. I'll wait.

    It appears you and Aimiel are as natural as the man spoken there. Some of you are afraid to stand up to some of the things that are spoken by others. – AAAHHHH, waiting.
