    Oh please. I just don't take you seriously. And if you want to be taken seriously, I am telling you what you might do to help yourself. I wouldn't "report" ridiculous crap like yours. Your posts are the equivalent to jokes - the only difference being that YOU think they are serious. Again - only trying to help. If you want to impress your goofy friends by continuing to throw YouTube videos in-between your attempts to sound "oh so special" and "oh so smart" you're entirely free to. I'm not going to stop you! But I will continue to berate you and tell you how ridiculous you seem. You can count on that.

    Being tolerant of someone does not equal accepting anything that person says despite how illogical, obscure, confused or fantastical that is and just because that person saying it wants it to be true and accepted.

    I do not accept that you have proven dark matter and the Riemann hypothesis just because you say so, can write the claim out and have it stored on some internet site. I can make the same claims using your methods and that would be no more true than your effort.

    I do not believe that you are asking for tolerance. I believe you are asking everyone to accept what you post without question as if it is established fact.

    Based on your syllogism, you could be naming the most powerful extant human to be your God.

    Do you see yourself in a Christ-like position and that any opposition to your Word is the result of Evil and not a rational criticism of your ideas, claims and so called logic?

    What does tolerance mean to you in this context? Does it mean being allowed to have your say and to respond rationally to criticism of your words or does it mean that everyone accept without question all that you say and heap praise upon you for those words?

    Thank you. Then more suits this:
    some being knows more than some other being, and the most knowledgeable one is God.

    But it is the definition of God. Valid for theism. If a disbeliever asks to define God, then just say: He knows Science better than any other being.

    God knows Science better than any other being.
    It is the only truth of all variety of truths of God (known to Christians), which is obvious even for atheists.

    It is my belief that God knows science better than any other being, but I have nothing to show others that my belief is valid.

    If this truth is obvious, then how come it cannot be established as fact?

    The Atheist knows, that there is the most clever being in all history of the Multiverse.
    Same knowledge any theist has.
    All people share this thought.
    Theists call Him by word God.
    Atheists prefer not to call Him by any name.

    Really? Why do you insist on abusing atheist by casting them within your own limited mindset?

    It's more like theists know there is no supreme being but cannot hope to cope with life without an imaginary friend to hold their hand. So remain in the delusion to massage their own ego.

    Hi Questfortruth

    Hope you are doing well.

    The word 'God' is not a personal name of the creator.
    In the bible, we are given the personal name of the creator as YHWH and this name is found in the most ancient texts of the scriptures and its also found on the buildings of many churches around the world.

    Watch this youtube video which shows some of the places in the world where the personal name is found

    The Sacred Hebrew Name of God in Churches - YouTube

    In english the name is Jehovah.

    Psalm 83:18
    May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah,+
    You alone are the Most High over all the earth.
    +

    Exodus 6:3
    And I used to appear to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob as God Almighty,+
    but with regard to my name Jehovah+ I did not make myself known to them.

    Isaiah 42:8
    I am Jehovah. That is my name;
    I give my glory to no one else,*
    Nor my praise to graven images

    in like manner the Muslims believe, that God's true name is not God but Allah.
