Re: Does This Sound Loving?

Hello, everyone, Noah in particular, I'm new to this discussion here and I've been seeing some comments thrown around that claim that in the Bible are verses of tyranny and violence... Noah, you have any verse references for me? I've been a Christian for 13 years now and I've never heard of such ve...

Re: I found myself laughing...

Yeah it seems pretty silly to me as well, I think I'm going to send along an email and destroy every single one of their laughable "proofs." All 50 of them

Re: God of the gaps: single most overrated argument of all t

Ok, I'll start off by saying that Christians and theists in general do at times fall into "God of the gaps" reasoning, they take one thing and harp on it as if its proof that there is a God simply because scientists/philosophers/whoever else haven't provided a sufficient explanation for it (whateve...

Re: God of the gaps: single most overrated argument of all t

But, I don't think it is very nice of you to come to a Christian site... and... try to "convert" people. I am quite positive you don't like it when Christians/Mormons/Witnesses do it to you so why do it to others? I don't even know if you realize what you are doing... Care to elaborate? I saw no ef...

Re: Why Did God Make It So Difficult

Sometimes I get angry at God for making the Bible so easy to criticize. There are so many verses in the Bible that can be interpreted as God being a "evil" God by destroying cities, ordering the killing of people..etc. Also, verses about drinking poison and not being affected is another one. And, H...

Atheist Desperation

Hello everyone, I'm here to share with you a little conversation that I happened to observe on a particular blog on Tumblr. The questioner was a Christian, whereas the blogger was the atheist, the blogger called himself a proponent of equal rights. The questioner asked him how he could reconcile the...

I tried my best to reply to all requests. I did get to yours on logic...you don't have to lie about me not responding, you could have just said you didn't like the answer I gave. I'm afraid I don't have a better one, it is the basis of how we think. If you don't like it, don't use it. We'll argue u...

Re: A response to this website

Can we all just end this discussion? There comes a point where one must walk away and leave someone to their beliefs. We won't convince this guy over the Internet, and we can't even get him to listen to us. All he does is accuse us of intellectual laziness and God-of-the-Gaps arguments, he has this ...

Re: A response to this website

The universe is the prime example, as I already stated. Please explain how the universe came to be, using only natural phenomenon in your reasoning. That is an illogical question. It is inherently flawed. (Prior to the big bang, that is.) Oh my gosh. I am astounded. All he asks is for you to explai...

Re: Who has to prove it?

An atheist friend of mine is always telling people to prove to him there is a god, and it is the Christian God. He says that if I can't do it, he doesn't exist. Of course though he shrugs off EVERYTHING i say. Anyway, I've been thinking, shouldn't he have to prove that there isn't since he is going...

Re: A response to this website

KravMagaSelfDefense, we do not prove logic or math using science, in fact almost the opposite (almost), we use science on the basis that logic and math are valid (depending on your field of science, I find chemistry and physics to be heavily intertwined with mathematics). They stand on their own be...

Re: A response to this website

Well, sir, the "God-of-the-Gaps" accusation is a argument commonly used by atheists which says that hypothesizing God as an explanation for the universe is intellectually lazy, since all you are doing is taking the "gaps" in scientific knowledge and saying "science can't explain it therefore God di...
