Then what IS your primary reason for your atheism?
Some years ago I wrote a three page long list of arguments for not believing in God. There were 24 different points grouped in three sections
1. There are no good arguments for a God
2. There is no need for a God
3. Contradictions in Christianity
Unfortunately I wrote it in Swedish but I can rewrite it in English if you want. However I think it is better to discuss that in a separate thread.
And I'm sure such arguments were quite innovative having never been previously raised or adequately responded to ever.
Maybe you can take up my old challenge in a post elsewhere
, to put on the table the nature of reality as you see it and your justification for such. Otherwise, I'm inclined to think your disbelief in God is more attributed to some father issues or the like, similar to Nietzche, Freud, et al.
Kureiou, I am not sure of how to evaluate your comments. I am new on this forum so you don't know me and I don't know you. In a first contact I don't think irony, or what it is, is well placed especially when it is as aggressive as your final remark.
But never mind. I have spent several hours (too many, ask my wife) reading the thread you referred to. It is very interesting and I think that I have learnt more about the Christian way of reasoning than I learnt in earlier discussions in other forums. Generally, in discussions I have the goal that we shall understand each other and even if it is not possible to agree I think it is desirable to be able agree on where and perhaps why we don't agree.
If you are interested I can start such a debate but it will take a long time, partly because I don't have much time to spare so I can't reply swiftly, partly because the questions are difficult and perhaps most because the subject is huge.
