wait...what God are we talking about? Christian's God? Crom (from hyborian age), or Flying Spaghetti Monster?

If you're just talking about a being called "God" then I would respectfully disagree with you. Lots of great scientists believes in a "God" such as Einstein, Isaac Newton, Galileo, Maxwell, Planck, Pasteur...etc...though it may not be the Christian's God, but a higher more being.

I think most atheist will agree that there is certainly no Christian's God, but I think most doesn't discount the fact that there might be a "God" which is the creator of the universe (who doesn't care if you worship him/it or not and doesn't give a crap about your prayers).

Some people follow a belief system with ten commandments.
Others follow a belief system with no commandments.

My personal belief system has one commandment; Keep thy religion to thy self.

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but that statement is inherently tautological.

That is not an accurate interpretation of the schroedinger's cat experiment. The principle of superposition maintains that an object is in all possible states until such time as it's state is observed. This means you don't kill a person just by looking at them, because they were already in the state "alive", and simultaneously in the state "dead".

Ironically, at least for your argument, it was quantum physics that explained why the big bang did not need to be initiated by an outside force (god).

The big bang cannot be proved either because no one was acutally there to see it, but most athiests believe it to be true.

Again, faith is believing without seeing.

Your post is a prime example of the sort of inconsiderate, mocking derision that makes the discussion worse than pointless.

Big Bang cannot be proved, but there are enough evidence that make people feel it's very plausible.

We can't really find any good evidence to prove a talking snake, Noah's ark with animals with two of each species, carbon dating to date the earth is only 6-8K years old, and etc...

There shouldn't be a comma between mocking and derision.

Fixed. The list of coordinate adjectives was longer at one point. After eliding one and changing the noun, I forgot to remove the extra comma.
