Re: Newton's 3rd Law + Logic = Genesis?

How is a faith that suggests governors of the universe, without giving reason for their existence, more logical than the Trinity which reason suggests exists through itself due to its nature?
I think the use of the word "reason" is inappropriate. "Bizarre fantasy" or "recycled drivel" would be a better fit.

There's nothing mysterious about light, and no reason to suppose that dark matter, if it exists, was created by a man with a beard and his illegitimate son the crucified rabbi. Indeed the very idea of an omnipotent being allowing his offspring to be tortured is as repellent as it is ludicrous. But still there are some who worship the creator of congenital syphilis.

It is ignorant to insult what you do not understand.

If the bible is to be believed, its god is utterly reprehensible. By their deeds shall ye know them.

If the bible is not to be believed (and it doesn't actually mention a trinity, so it's hardly a good starting point anyway), you might have a point, but you are a long way from demonstrating it.
