What reason do you have in trying to disprove christianity or any religion for that matter? I always wonder why athiest or agnostics even debate. Christians have a purpose, whats yours?
Nah bruh it's only Christ. God will bring our souls to the clouds where we drink refreshing lemonade all day. People who suck at life will like go under the earth and burn cuz they did us wrong.
HOLY SHVT bro. You just took ignorance to new heights! I am never left jaw agape on this board but you got me here.
I never meant to cause you any sorrow. I never meant to cause you any pain. I only wanted to one time see you laughing. I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain.
More chaff. Very Cane-like performance in this thread. Emoticons to follow.
Ill go with you enjoy a nice debate then...
Thought the man asked a pretty good question. And you responded as you did to avoid having to answer it?
How do you know I'm just "pursuing Christ to avoid hell?"
Maybe you should start reading the thread again. I'm trying to live like Christ because of what he did for me by sending his son to the cross. Do I always succeed? No. I sin everyday just like everyone, but I sure am trying.
I fully believe that you just can't "be saved." You have to realize that you are a sinner in need of Savior. One knows when the Holy Spirit is tugging on his/her heart.
All I'm saying is one of us is gonna be right and one wrong.
Personally, I'd love to disprove religion. Do you know how much pain and suffering has been and continues to be dealt out in the name of religion? Just imagine: a world with no religious condemnation of homosexuality (or any "deviant" behavior), a world with no jihad, a world with no Crusades and no constant religious war between Israel and the rest of the Muslim world - a world where women's health choices aren't dictated by antiquated doctrines, a world with no Inquisition, and a world without the church structure that covers up the rape of children.
That's the reason I have for trying to disprove religion.
No, it won't be because you suck at life. It will be because you made the decision not to accept him.
You are absolutely correct, but the conclusions you may be drawing from the analogy might be fundamentally flawed.
Yes, Apollo 11 established absolute proof that the moon wasn't made from swiss cheese. But we already had scientific "faith" that it was not. Meaning, there are hundreds of years of astronomy, chemistry, biology, mathematics, etc that would point you to one conclusion - life exists elsewhere - and merely blind faith that would lead you to the opposite. They do not exist on equal footing. Just as Creation "Science" does not carry equal weight to evolutionary biology.
I always think its a little goofy when all these people come on this board and ask for prayers. How do those work out for ya?
You think its a pretty good question because you thought the drake equation was a pertinent and poignant post. lol
But what about the people I keep asking about? How can they accept Him if they've never heard of Him?
Thanks for crushing some of these questions. Trying to work here!
You have no proof that they didn't. As I've stated before, God works in crazy ways.
How do you know He is not a trickster god that rewards incredulity? Maybe he only rewards people that don't believe in him as they have exercised the reason given to them by him to come to a logical conclusion instead of being naive. So maybe, by believing in him and accepting the hand fed stuff from the bible, you are condemning yourself to burn in a lake of fire forever. Before you answer so quickly, consider I have just as much evidence for this form of god as you do for yours.
Prayer always strikes me as such a narcissistic thing. Invariably, there's someone out there who has things worse than you. Clearly, God can't help everyone at once (or he would, right?) so, what kind of a person says "Yeah, forget all those starving kids in Africa or all those people with cancer, I'd like the Big Man to lay his personal blessing on this meal."?
Or, even better, what about those church leaders who ask for blessings for sports teams? Wow.

If religion was disproven I think the world would go into full depression mode. There would be a lot less sanity, and we would become inefficient. I for one have become a nealist believing nothing matters in life and eventually everything will be gone. With faith that wouldn't be the case. This world may actually be better off with people having hope for an afterlife.
When asked if they'd heard of Christ and their response was, "No," I'd say that's proof.
Honestly, I don't care what evidence you have. Each person chooses his/her path. If one chooses to not believe that is on them.
Seriously, take a course in logic.
"You have no proof they didn't" and "God works in mysterious ways" can essentially be translated to "I'm done thinking".
If you're not just asking rhetorically I know the answer to this... The theological answer anyway.
Do you have concrete proof?
No, it doesn't mean that. It means that is what I believe.
