Are you so dense that you believe they wouldn't agree with me?? I am stupid. I promise I Delusion I know more than you, and they all do agree with me. A few of them go to church.
But you're right, that it's totally my prerogative to continue writing like I'm brain damaged.
Pardon, but that whomever "agreeing with you" statement just doesn't logic out to anything near rational, as I was referencing deceased ones, like Einstien and MANY, many others. Do they often speak to you, and attend church from their graves?

The rest of your post above however, with some edits to bettter represent reality, I would agree with however.

You must be confusing us peaceable, decent types, with the vile, name-calling, haters of others opinion, witch hunting, accusatory types.
Harming others in any way, form or fashion, is NOT something I "believe" in. Not at all.

You misunderstood the poster's intent. He (or she?) said: "God destroyed my faith with the brain he gave me, and he always knew that I would use my brain in this way. I was created to do exactly that. So, was I created to be damned? Am I to be punished for how God made me?" These are rhetorical questions. That is, the poster is not asserting that God *literally* created him with a brain. He is asking the question IF God created me, THEN he created me with this brain. Therefore he created me with the very tool that would make it impossible for me to believe in him. Atheism is a result of skepticism, or it is not really atheism at all. And skepticism is a result of applying reason to what we observe in the world and what we think about it. The opposite is allowing emotion to steer. Faith is based on emotion, not reason. There is a place for emotion. I would argue that emotion is sort of the reason to have reason. Otherwise what are you really doing? But if you let emotion lead the way you will go down dead end alleys all the time.
I disagree, faith isn't "based on emotion, not reason". Faith isn't reason but faith isn't emotion either. Faith is belief.

Thought doesn't exclude faith. There's nothing in the human brain that makes it immune to assumption or belief.

It is a subtle jab at our Mormon friends:
"The Book of Mormon tells of the resurrected Jesus Christ and His visit to His faithful followers in ancient America. After His visits to His disciples in the Old World, He descended out of heaven and appeared to His followers in ancient America.
The Book of Mormon describes how, during His visit, Jesus Christ healed their sick, taught them His gospel, blessed their children, and called twelve disciples to organize His Church in the Americas (3 Nephi 11:18; 3 Nephi 12:1-2)."
Also, I have read about plate tectonics. I am not a scientist so I have not studied the matter in the proper sense. Why do you ask?
Ah. Having not read the BOM much to any depth at all, I can honestly say, I do NOT know much of anything concerning the history on origins of the beliefs of.
Jesus sounds like he was a nice human being in their book as well though, from what you have posted.

There are still many depths of oceans (even aside from more easily, accessible, ever shifting plates) that we have yet to scientifically explore, to their fullest potential.

and once again u think u know me and u have no clue so i will tell u why i know so much about the bible and its not cuz i sit and read it just so i can try to disprove it. i was at one time a church goer too. my parents and grandparents took me to church every sunday and guess what....i did believe at one time just as u do. i also gave a sermon or two when i was younger but as i began to read more and more of the bible so that i could be there for others seeking god and know answers for questions and things. but as i learned more and more of how the god of the old testament was and began to question things the whole religion seemed to fall flat of its face without any kind of sense of logic or rational. i think the whole story is just a feel good story so ppl dont have to realize that when u die u are dead, u are not special in this universe, u are just a speck of nothing on one small rock in a universe so vast that if it were created the god would be doin alot more things than just watching all of us on this little rock. and i dont see any creator makin something then torturing it forever for not being a slave to it, or atleast dont see a "loving" creator that the bible claims to have as one that would think torture for eternity is just for anything. and the only reason i come here and tell these things is that maybe i can save someone from a life of slavery like the church wants them to live. u only get one go at so u should enjoy it in any way u want as long as u arent hurtin anyone else. no one should be afraid that if they masturbate they will burn in hell for eternity.....lmao that is the kind of stupidity that religion brings to the ppl of this earth. another example of stupidity from faith.....suicide bombers for allah. good ppl do good things and bad ppl do bad things but it takes a god to make good ppl do bad things.
Glad you shared your thoughts with me and I feel badly regarding your experiences.
I'm retired. I worked in sales,so I was continuously dealing with people that were my clients.
It is my opinion that many of the problems we face in life ,are self made.
That opinion is based on dealing with people at work,with friends,relatives,neighbors, at play and my personal experiences

Siblings will fight over an inheritance,we develop attitudes toward people that don't think as we do,we scheme to get ahead,we steal,lie and connive and the list goes on. These attitudes create in us,anger,worry,
bitterness and impatience, which in turn,is reflected in the manner we conduct our lives
We let our emotions control us,
Then,we claim to be good,in spite of all of our faults,whatever they may be.
That is our human nature at work,I know that to be true,not just because I have observed it in others,I am guilty of such behaviour as well.
Since you have read the Bible,then you must be aware as to how I have dealt with that problem .
My experiences with God are quite different from yours.
As a result,we will,no doubt,continue to disagree....
My desire is that,hopefully,some event will occur in your life,that will lead you to a different conclusion.

No. Regardless of character, a person can have faith in something, and the same person can apply logic... but not to the same thing. Because they are mutually exclusive.
Might want to make up your mind on that...?

You either believe faith and logic can and often do harmoniously exist (as I personally believe they do-and have stated MANY, many times) OR, you do NOT believe that people can and often do, have faith AND logic, with out issue, as YOU have stated many times.

Which is it? Or do you just enjoy being representative of contrariness?

<quoted text>I believe that our surroundings and our experiences, in conjunction with the way we were raised, shapes who we become.
For example, one of my friends that is gay was badly picked on all through school. He grew up poor and did not have access to running water. The bullies capitalized and made his life tough until he got out of school. Once he started working and earning money, he moved away. But of course this stuck with him and he had a lot of social problems. He couldn't talk to girls because he got so nervous around them. He worked with mostly guys and he could always talk more openly with guys because he could be himself and not worry about impressing them. One of the guys that he worked with let it be known that he was gay, and over the course of about 5 years, they formed a relationship.
He said he is still more attracted to girls, but feels more comfortable around guys. He has no problem saying he wasn't born gay. In his case, it could be said that this was a choice. But it certainly doesn't seem like a cognizant choice that he made. It seems like he became a victim of his childhood.
You are describing a bisexual. Not a straight person (despite what both of you apparently think). Besides, sexual attraction is not black and white. It's a spectrum. Anyone that is all the way on the "straight" side cannot have a sexual relationship with another of the same sex. It causes overwhelming revulsion.

No, I'm quite sure they were correct. Faith is emotion based. You believe something because you WANT to, not because it's actually true. Wants are emotion based. Unless you can come up with one that I'm not aware of, I'm pretty sure that there is no non-emotion based reason to have faith in anything.

I think this would be a wonderful thing. I believe the children who want to study the bible and learn about our savoir Jesus Christ should be able to. If you do not wish to learn about Jesus you don't have to attend this study. Just an idea. We have allowed athiest ect.. To have the final say for to long. It's time Christians took a stand. Jesus will not push himself on anyone. The teaching should be available for the
Ones who want to learn.
Great post!
The ratings on the mini series 'The Bible' prove people are in need of knowledge about things science cannot ever explain!

It would've been kind of Illchronilogically illogical to put the book of Revelations in the middle of the books of the New Testament? I would agree lol.
