    "Arrogant" because your underestimate the knowledge of others and overestimate the same time the real existing possibilities of all mankind and "aggressive" because you discriminate everyone who shares not your belief.



    This I did not say. I said: "God made existence. I wonder why your ancestors felt not from a tree so you survived. God's will? I have to accept this and not to correct his will."



    You are not. Perhaps you would be insulted if I would be a Muslim and start to sharpen my sword. But you can live within millions of Christians without any danger for you and your life.







    You should answer god because some things make more sense if you speak with god about. It makes for example not a big sense to try to tell god a lie.

    Why do you say atheism is a spiritual belief? What is spiritual but not believing in something? I don't believe in unicorns, does that mean I'm spiritual about them?
    How do you speak with god? If I said I was speaking with unicorns, you'd think I'm nuts

    Remember that being a Christian, or a believer of any religion, is about the faith, not the exact date you put on an event.
    So, the oldest religion it correct, the others that followed are just copy-cats, late-comers trying to cash in on a good gig?

    So, if the events DID occur, but they happened much earlier than is currently accepted (even though gobekli tepi (sp?) shows that humans were building stone monuments as early as 16000 years ago, and for some reason THAT one was buried), then what does that mean for the arguments?

    (Btw, I'm not religious, though I've read a good number of the ancient texts)
    Amun, also spelled Amon and Amen, was an ancient Egyptian deity.
    Strange that Christians would end all their pray with a salute to a Egyptian God.

    All I need to know about God it that I'm not him.

    Thanks, I knew it was something like that... And it is a strange connection. Specious as it is.

    You don't seem to be able to separate hyperbole from reality. Shooting someone on 5th Ave, who would take that seriously? Those that will use anything to trash him.
