Re: For Those Who DON'T believe in God:

JH: Being an atheist/agnost myself I can understand the benefits of the existence of God, the guidance it gives in life, to be cared for, the safety of Him being there, the warm and comfortable presence of someone that watches over us, the heaven that awaits when we die, etc. It feels "save", but t...

Re: For Those Who DON'T believe in God:

Ken: Well evidently there are a lot of Christians who don’t always follow Christ’s teachings in how to treat unbelievers. If you don’t see this, perhaps its because you are not an Atheist. Ken, did you not read what I acknowledged directly above your comment about that reality. Most of those people...

Re: For Those Who DON'T believe in God:

JustHuman: How about you (discussions.godandscience.org) presenting a platform for these discussions. You instigate the possibility for these kind of argueing and are surprised that it actually works? JH, if you're asking why Christians are passionate about the issue vs. atheists and agnostics, it'...

Re: For Those Who DON'T believe in God:

Over the years, I've seen quite a few atheist and agnostics on the forum relentlessly argue their reasons why they don't believe in God, or don't believe in an afterlife. Seems they doth protest too much! I really don't get why anyone who believes there is no God truly cares beyond a certain, rathe...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

I think you mean blind faith . We don't believe God is eternal because of blind faith. We believe God is eternal because of logic. See Aquinas' Five ways, for example. Yes, fate/faith, silly mistake, haven't seen that. Logic and truth are not necessarily the same. You cannot deduct truth from what ...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

I think your boat is sailing past mine, had already sailed past some time ago. I'm not sure what you are disagreeing with. Also, I'm not sure I see what relevance "the Word of God" being spread by brute force or otherwise has to do with matters. Seems like handwaving away and a cliche you've just c...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

Sorry, but I still believe Atheists (especially those who take a positive position that God doesn't exist) are wilfully ignorant. I'd also include those weaker forms who simply do not acknowledge God. This wilful ignorance also extends to Atheists frequenting forums like this and I'd include yourse...

Re: Are You Are Skeptic or In Denial?

I think that we Christians need a whole new strategy when it comes to dealing with atheists.We do not need to try to convince atheists God is real to atheists but instead we should work on trying to teach atheists to go by evidence in order to get to the truth of any issue and that is how important...

I'm not sure how it can work with us being the "Fred" unless you wish to put forward some positive arguments for Atheism.
