which message are you trying to portray here.


A pastor that conceded defeat in a debate he had with an atheist was busy making fallacious appeal to ignorant and the congregation was laughing foolishly. he couldn't defend his position in the presence of the atheist, can only do that before his congregation.

Absurdity

atheism never claim or assert that there is no god, there is this burden of proof that atheists are asking for, from theists.

Am of the opinion that there is no good reason to believe in a god until there is enough evidence to support the claim.


i was an idiot believing such concept until the time i started thinking about those things i was told and indoctrinated from my childhood, whether i have good reasons and justifications to still holding such a believe. then i realized that there is none. i became an atheist

Actually, all babies are born atheists, a clean slate, right before they are indoctrinated by their muslim/christian/ATR parents.

FOOL
a silly or stupid person; a person who lacks judgment or sense



you are believing a claim with faith, without evidence. Don't be bias at-least for this moment, tell between me and you who is a fool in this context?


That i wrote in a book in which anybody who doesn't believe in me becomes an idiot doesn't make anybody who did an idiot in reality.

When Ben Carson said that the atheist 'is right' and that he has 'convinced him' doesn't mean that he conceded defeat it is called Sarcasm. undecided

And who told you that 'B' was debunked without any shroud of evidence? What other evidence do you want for the existence of the Creator?

With my limited knowledge and physical senses I have the evidence of God's existence. When I look at a building, how do I know that there was a builder? I couldn't want a better evidence that there was a builder than to have the building in front of me. I don't even need faith to know that there was a builder. All I need are eyes that can see and a brain that can think.

The same principle applies to the existence of God. When I look at creation, how can I know that there was a Creator? Creation reveals to me that there is a Creator. I couldn't want a better evidence that there is a Creator than to have the creation in front of me. I don't need faith to realise that there is a Creator, all I need are eyes that can see and a brain that can think.

"For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse" (Romans 1:20).

But if I want the builder to do something for me, then I need to have faith in the builder.

"Without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).

If you need to know God on an intimate level you need faith based on His Word and World. QED. Simples. wink

Bullcrap.

Atheism is not ignorance as you postulated here.

Atheism is rejection, denial and negation.

Atheists know what is. They have knowledge of it but are not acknowledging it. They reject and deny the existence because of absence of evidence.

What the man wrote has been my thoughts for years in connection to religion (not God/god) and how people take it serious when in actual sense the mind was moulded to hold on strong to a belief from childhood.

Reason I co-signed.

Sir

Atheism does not have anything to do with religion but God.

There are christian atheists who go to church. That does not mean they believe in God but still partake in christianity activities and observe it teaching.

Buddhist atheists do not believe in God but still practise buddhism which is spirituality and religion.

So the man you quote is wrong just like you are wrong

I related his thoughts to religion not to atheism nor God.

I have always wondered why folks here take Islam and Christianity so serious that they trample on ATR.

As a result, I wonder if they've ever thought to themselves that they are Christians or Muslims because they were born and programmed by their parents and their immediate environment to tow a path.

My agreement with him has nothing to do with the topic at hand (God/Atheism).

I guess I should have kept the co-signing off the thread.

I hope you understand my explanation.

We didn't hear the atheist's side of the story. Also, no scientist believes we came from a monkey as Carson said. And it's not ridiculous anyway.

Men I must say Ben Carson does remind me of Uncle Ruckus no relation in the Boondocks.
