Re: Stop A Christian Their Tracks

Also, I'm not sure why you require the Bible to be perfect....I certainly don't, which is why I'm not a Fundamentalist. I think I'd require it to be perfect because it is alleged to be the word of god. An imperfect word of god seems pretty slippery! Why couldn't a god who could creater everything g...

Re: Stop A Christian Their Tracks

Add to which: communism and nazism are belief systems in themselves. To suggest that because some people were once both communist/nazi and atheist means that atheists are communists/nazi's is about as bad an argument as I have ever heard. Similar in offensiveness as 'there are black criminals, so al...

Re: Atheists Not for Jesus

Jerry, Do you think I am going to try to find six clergymen where I live who would be prepared to spend the time being interviewed by an Atheist on such a topic. Have a bit of sense for a change. Yup, you're a big talker, but you bring nothing. Jerry - it was a key reason for me dropping religion: ...

Re: Stop A Christian Their Tracks

I think that's my main beef with atheism. Atheism doesn't help me accomplish my goals. Atheism doesn't do anything , in fact. Atheism is nothing. Jerry - first up - thanks for a very honest open answer to my question: that's great. I can entirely empathise with the search that leads you to drop one...

Re: Would it be better if God existed?

Rational_thinker. Congratulations. That has to be the best I have read about man's deluded imagination regarding "God/s". I wish Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens could read it. With your permission, I shall post it on Richard Dawkin's Forum and the Atheist Foundation of Australia's Forum. A...

Re: Would it be better if God existed?

Obvious questions aside as this is a speculative discussion and in this instance I'm talking about the Judean Christian God to evade the which one argument. Since most religious people have their own opinion of what God is and don't tend to take a strict interpretation there is an element of creati...

Re: Stop A Christian Their Tracks

Jerry, Genuinely interested to hear from you (and it was examination of this question that caused me to drop my very devout Christian faith - held for 30+ years): what is the basis on which a theist (you for example?) chooses whether to believe something or not? To me this ended up being one of the ...
