<quoted text>Who says they came from nothing? When you say "chance" do you consider gravity pulling rocks together over many millions of years to form a planet, "chance"?

Again, if you base the idea of god upon what you cannot know about the earth, life or the universe, I can understand why you must believe in a god. It is called, god of the gaps. You are inserting a god into a gap of knowledge.

Ancient men did not have knowledge of how rain came to be, so they formed a concept of a god making rain. Some called this god, Zeus.
Yes, this would be considered chance. As in no one is guiding the individual formations to gravitate towards each other. That would be chance.
I personally do not see how the planets in our solar system could orbit this sun so consistently for billions of years, without moving closer to the point that it is eventually consumed, or further, in which eventually life on this planet would no longer exist.
So I have a belief that God put these things in motion, and that it did not happen by chance. As always, I admit this is my belief.

<quoted text> Because men do not seek God until there is no where else to turn, it's in our nature, and yours too. God is LOVE.
God wishes that everyone LOVE everyone, but not everyone will do this, simply because many do not know the "Will of God" and many will not do it "WHEN they know". But for those who do know and do "The Will of God" they receive Eternal LIFE. This is what the Messiah Jesus Christ came to tell Man in sum, but many did not, and do not believe Him (John 14:6);(Mathew 7:21). To follow the "Will of the Father" men would have to lay their weapons down and seek “Peace” through LOVE for one another, but many refused to do this and many still refuse to do this, so the World continues on towards Armageddon.(Revelation 16:13-16); (Mathew 10:16,17)
No true Scotsman fallacy. Do you have an answer that is not fallacious?

<quoted text>Again, I suppose the Jews expected as much due to the tradition of King David and Moses doing the same. This is why Jesus supposedly had to have ties of blood relation to King David. As if the blood line held some magical power. As if a god had to impregnate someone that was a descendant of king David. Or was it Joseph that was the descendant? Well the new testament claims they both were, in order to cover that base.

See why this all sounds like a comic book to us?

Maybe if the prophesy was a bit less vague, the Jews would accept your claims. Maybe the holy ghost will not tell them until after they already believe the story?
The only correlation to bloodline is the priesthood. Blood has nothing to do with it. The priesthood was handed down from father to son by the laying on of hands. Jesus would need to be born in a family that worships God and follows God's commandments.

Yes I understand why you don't believe. Really I do. That's why I'm not insulting about it. That's why I don't threaten you with talk of sin and hell.

Only in the question of what happens after death.
Well, two problems, that would make your disdain for all of science because science is the tool used to discover all the answers that scientific minds rely on. Thus, if you have disdain for one thing science has discovered, you have disdain for all things science has helped us discover.

Second, science doesn't say anything about what happens after death, there is no evidence to present, thus we cannot use the tool to analyze anything, thus there is nothing for science to tell us about what happens after death other than "nothing."

Not everyone that says they are Christian are really Christian. Many don't understand. Jesus did not come to do everything for us He came to show us how to live that we could receive eternal life. He said that there would be a falling away from what he taught, and that many would claim Him but would not do what he taught us to do "Love one Another as we Love ourselves" and because of this, man would eventually destroy himself because the Love of many would wax cold and they themselves would not realize it.
2 Thessalonians 2:3; Romans 16:17,18; Matthew 24:4-8; 2 Corinthians 4:3,4; 2 Corinthians 11:13-15; Acts 17:24; Acts 14:15,16; John 14:6; Matthew 7:20-23; Proverbs 1:20-33; Mark 12:30,31; John 4:23,24; 6:63; Galatians 6:7,8; Galatians 5:13,14-26; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Matthew 24:22.

Fallacies are not truth, and neither are mythologies. So, begs the question, where is the solid evidence supporting your assertions? Any of them.

The easiest way to convert a person to Atheism is to make them read the entire Bible.

Just one small example for the incessant verse-posters...

Jer. 32:17,27-There is nothing too hard for thee...Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?

THEN>>>

Judges 1:19 - And the LORD was with Judah; and he drave out the inhabitants of the mountain; but COULD NOT drive out the inhabitants of the valley, because they had chariots of iron.

So, which is it? All powerful or not?

You Christians do realize the authors of the Bible were bronze age men who didn't know where the sun went at night, and who still wiped their asses with their hands.

Your God chose to reveal himself as flesh (in Jesus) to desert dwelling illiterate men. Why didn't HE reveal himself to the Chinese who were far advanced at that time?

When REALLY studied, the Bible is the BEST conversion tool Atheists have. Period.

<quoted text>So you do not base your life upon Jesus' suggestion that you turn the other cheek?
Strange that Jesus would still answer your prayers when you turn against his wishes yet billions have massive suffering and their prayers go unanswered.
Is it good that either one of you are being nasty with each other? No, but if you are claiming some moral high-ground, or trying to show your god is favoring you with magical acts, it stands to reason you are proving yourself as having a false perception.
Michael,I have never claimed the moral highground nor have I said that God is favoring me based on anything that I have done.
I am a sinner,like every one else and have absolutely no reason to boast,to claim that I am morally superior to others or to make a claim to God that he should favor me.
The responses I have received to my prayers have not been as a result of the good that I may think I have done,but,based on God's grace and my belief that Jesus paid for all the wrongs that I have committed,which by far,outweigh the good.
I don't know if you are able to understand that.
This magic,as you call it,has been a blessing to me,
It has changed me into a much better person than what I once was.
Something I could not have done based on my own efforts,much as a leopard can not change it's spots....
Knowing what I once was,when I lived according to my human nature and what I am now,going back to my old way of life would be like exchanging gold for fools gold.....
Many are those,whom,in spite of their imperfections,dare call themselves good.
Yet,when they see those same imperfections in others,they find them disgusting.

That's human nature at work

I don't need to "debate" the bible. There are people (Mike, Q, Ummm, Yiago and Chrom--to name a few) on this thread who are much more knowledgable and eloquent than I am.
Mostly I just read, but sometimes the ridiculousness I see compels me to type.

<quoted text> Of course we don't know the whole mind of God, but He has told us all we need to know to have eternal life. If you don't want eternal life in Heaven one day that is your choice. I choose to go there.
Good luck with that.
No, really, I mean it.
If that is what you need to believe to get you through the day (and night),
good luck.
Myself, I'll take reality.

A response to a post is not a guarantee that the post was read, much less read completely.

The "things wrong with the world" are the same things that were always wrong with it...but now we have the Internet to tell us all about it.

People are no worse nor better than they have ever been.
Perhaps there is such a thing as too much information.
