  •  The Bible itself is what says so... (0+ / 0-)

    But I also know that I am right when I say that none of you have any idea what you are talking about.  

    I don't mind a bit of discussion about the Bible.  Want to tell me on what you base this statement of yours?

    •  I don't have any interest in talking about (0+ / 0-)

      the Bible which is not the revealed word of God, or any other word of God.  I know that you probably think it is something holy, but it isn't.  It is just a book that men wrote about a God they imagined.  Nothing more.

      I am right about this.  But I am not trying to get you or anybody else to change your mind.  I wish you well.

      It is amazing to me how so many people start conversations with the given that the Bible is the word of God.  I still can't get over it.  There is absolutely no reason to believe in it, but millions of people do.  It just goes to show you that, even though you can't fool all of the people all of the time, you sure as hell can fool millions and millions of them all the time.

      If you don't have an earth-shaking idea, get one, you'll love building a better world.

      •  Try, billions... (0+ / 0-)

        There are approximately 2 billion Christians in the world.  Along with the other Abrahamic faiths, Judaism and Islam, both of which recognize the Old Testament as "the Book" (Muslims also honor the New Testament), approximately half the people in the world honor it.  Don't knock it if you haven't tried it.  Fooling people?  "The fool says in his heart, there is no God."  

        And you would be so certain there is no God?  Does that mean you have been everywhere in the universe so that you are certain He is not there?  If so, that would make you God, wouldn't it--making a lie of the assertion that there is no God.  Atheists are so silly.  Now, agnosticism, on the other hand, is much more logical.
