I made this comment on one of the threads on atheismsucks.blogspot.com:
Oh, it's quite true that we can't prove that we aren't a brain in a vat, or characters in a story, or shadows on a cave wall. The scientific method simply builds a model of the world in an effort to be able to make useful predictions. In that effort, it has been quite successful. So far, no testable predictions have been made by postulating a god.
"I just don't see how it makes any sense to think that an unintelligent process can bring forth intelligence."
I don't see how the god of the bible can possibly exist. Does that rule him out as a possibility? Not understanding something does not mean that it is not possible.
Here is the respone I got from the blog owner:

Then show us through the scientific method that we are not just our brains in a chemical vat while having our brains wielded by a scientist who is giving us the reality we see today. You didn't even bother showing us any proof in your comment except to say, "oh, we can disprove it alright." so, I'm giving you a second chance to show us. Unless you're here to troll and hack away.
Please note that in my original comment, I said that we could not do what he then challenges me to do. Now, maybe he misread what I wrote. That sort of thing happens all the time. I gave an additional post to call that to his attention in case it was an honest error. I'll wait and see if he lets that show or if he deletes it.
