TIME FOR DIRECT ACTION - BEYOND GOD, PROPHETS & SCRIPTURES:

The reach and days of the Bible, Koran and Vedas are over and their messages in varying degrees reflected the Truth or Untruth in various stages of perception at different points in time......

There is far more to what any scripture can say on the subject of The Ultimate Reality and Its graduated Manifestation.

We have to discover via direct transcendental experiences the first hand proof that these ancient books reveal and we also ought to map the unknown realms of the various planes and phenomena that're not hinted at in the books and have not been mapped or detailed and then go beyond the scope of the scriptures in our quest for something still higher and to the Ultimate Reality and make that all a part of earth life.

The time for infantile book reading, submitting to petty gods of the lower planes, blind acquiescence to ordinary dictates and belief in prophesy and revelation is over; now is the time for direct action which is to consciously ascend to the subtler cosmic and supracosmic realms and to bring down their power (beginning with the Supermind) in stages into the earth consciousness, earth matter and humanity and usher in the eternal Age of the Unified Truth - Consciousness that has the power to abolish every limitation or perversion that exists in the world.

What Krishna, Buddha, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad did not and could not do during their times can now, due to the superlative Work of later day Spiritual Pioneers like Aurobindo, be achieved as suitable conditions have gradually been created upon the unregenerate earth plane for the bringing down and the subsequent manifestation of the Supermind in the earth consciousness, earth matter and humanity that'll signal the advent of an Age based on Truth, Harmony, Progressive Perfection and absence of all existing shortcomings that humanity assumes are "normal" and has become used to.....

Back to our friend's example.
What evidence does any religious person have for the existences of his deity.
Same evidence for the Easter Bunny.
At least ATF et al have some evidence, whether or not you agree with it.
Some use subjective experiential feelings, other use testament as documented in their scriptures. It IS evidence, though it doesnt meet what you might consider as "modernly" acceptable standards for credibility, because of deficiencies regarding QA/QC.(Quality Assurance/ Quality Control). But it is evidence.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evidence

Evidence, broadly construed, is anything presented in support of an assertion. This support may be strong or weak. The strongest type of evidence is that which provides direct proof of the truth of an assertion. At the other extreme is evidence that is merely consistent with an assertion but does not rule out other, contradictory assertions, as in circumstantial evidence.

In law, rules of evidence govern the types of evidence that are admissible in a legal proceeding, as well as the quality and quantity of evidence that are necessary to fulfill the legal burden of proof. Types of legal evidence include testimony, documentary evidence, and physical evidence.

Scientific evidence consists of observations and experimental results that serve to support, refute, or modify a scientific hypothesis or theory, when collected and interpreted in accordance with the scientific method.

That is what it comes down to, evidence.
But the government lovers dont want to talk about evidence, just like the religious zealots.

Atheism was developed by our government in order to prepare us for One World government. That is why the government created Karl Marx.

Evidence is a rather broad category.

You are confusing "evaluation" with "evidence"

Christians believe the one world government to be created by an "Antichrist" but also believe that same government to be headed by Jesus. Maybe that's why Jesus said, "Behold I come as a thief". This Antichrist is also supposed to bring world peace but Christians won't take that as evidence that this person is the Messiah either. There is none so blind as he who will not see.

Born where? in some imaginary place that your mommy called "the state of whatever"
So you have faith in something that doesnt exist, that being a citizen is one that owes an oath of allegience in exchange for a duty if protection, however there is no duty to protect.
