But if you wanted to (say if a billion dollars were on the line) could you choose to believe even though you don't have wings you could fly?RickD wrote:Are you talking about this point?Kenny wrote:What do you think of the point I made?RickD wrote:Of course we all choose to believe what we believe.
Anyone who says differently makes no sense.
I choose to believe God exists.
Kenny chooses to believe God doesn't exist.
My choosing to believe God exists, doesn't make God exist, just like Kenny choosing to believe God doesn't exist, doesn't mean that God doesn't exist, just because Kenny believes He doesn't exist.
And just because someone chooses to believe he can fly like a bird, that doesn't mean he can.
KenI'm not sure I get the comparison. I don't choose to believe I can fly like a bird, because I don't have wings.In the context of this conversation, I am no more able to choose to believe what is required to be Christian, than you can choose to believe you can fly like a bird.
