So are you a vegetarian now? Don't take this the wrong way but did you speak to someone? Was anything else happening in your life at the time?

If no one can prove god exists or doesn't then why is god not existing foolish? I believe the god of gaps idea is valid, if we dont know something is it simply because we dont have the whole picture or because it's the work of god? I'll go with the former because there was a lot we didn't understand before that humans attributed to gods and spirits and whatever which we now know to be false which is the great thing about science. It isn't about imaging though it's about being able to prove your ideas are accurate, I have never been told to take something on faith when it comes to science.

If god being alive or dead makes no difference why is it wise to believe in a God?

i wish to be a vegetarian but society. even my home i eat meat. or what else do i eat? it'll be difficult but when i begin to stay alone i will try.

science talks about big bang and other things. remember science is all about best guess. not all its answers are absolute just as science evolves. so fa, science has not been able to address the afterlife and beginning of life with certainty, until then(Never possible). God reigns supreme.

how are you sure christ actually thought that? were you there?

How are you sure your parents actually were your parents? Were you there at your conception?

History has it that the scriptures were put together by witnesses and Historians have over many years vetted these scrolls as authentic copies which were later gathered into what we have today known as the Bible.

What you should focus on is this, The Bible says there is Power in that word..if it is false and untrue about what was written about Christ then there should be no power in it. Proof of authenticity is in its workings.

You say you believe in a God but on what grounds? With what foundation? Your musings which are finite in nature and would have made you run mad when you were about crossing your limit?

How can you see proof and rather than pursuing its authentication you apply inner ramblings and assume your inner ramblings may be the authentic proof you seek?

asin dude thy contradictions in that doctrine
-humans are punished for sins before they were born
-Since human existence in the Garden of Eden before original sin was therefore infinite, even a very small chance of Adam or Eve eating from the forbidden tree by accident would have become increasingly more likely over time
-what the Bleep was the tree even doing there in the first place
That's just like pouring gasoline round a kid, giving him s matchbox and saying" don't strike it"
The abrahamics God apparent omniscience even makes the story more messed up

I don't like being identified as an atheist because that's a very strong claim to make to say you are sure there is no God
Why are you perpetuating the lying apologist's false definition of atheism? An atheist is simply someone who does not believe in any God. If you don't believe in any God then you are an atheist regardless of what you choose to call yourself. Very few atheists would say that they are sure there is no God. Even "militant" atheists like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Lawrence Krauss would not make that claim. The version of atheism you are trying to throw under the bus for your personal benefit is very rare in the real world. So stop confusing people, please.

I think you are the one missing my point. I fully understood your thread but chose to pick out some areas i was not comfortable with which i believe is what or where you are leaning towards now.

The famous Philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein once said "You get tragedy where the tree, instead of bending, breaks." You here being the Tree! and he also said "I don't know why we are here, but I'm pretty sure that it is not in order to enjoy ourselves."

Whats your take?

You seem pretty eager to be awarded the worlds best atheist by definition. Jonbellion stated his view so why should it rile you up and then push you to call apologists liars? Pls do not derail this thread. You are a Mod so bring respect here. Afterall when you ban for comments like this you call it DEFAMING or DISRESPECTING a mod.

Didnt you say you were a beliver before? Is it that when you dump your faith you all of a sudden blank out on what had known, or you didnt know anything at all wen u were in church?

Questions like "What was the tree doing there" betrays your claims of ever being in church, much less being a christian.

There's some one i respect very much in this forum, he is not a Christian, but reasons so well. His reasons runs across all faiths.
He is not a religious person, but listen to him and get insight to what you believe in. He is better than some so called Pastors.
A guy like Hardmirror who claim to be a Pastor will melt at his presence.

Why can't former christians be like that? If you were a christian, but for reasons only you know, decided agaisnt it, why not know enough to tell someone why you no longer believe? Instead of just throwing your ignorance around?
