I say you are as delusional as all the various people if the various religions believe their prayers are answered by their god. Not all can be correct, can they? You keep ignoring this point. I am showing sound basis for my judgement.<quoted text>
1)Yes I did, so evidently you are skipping some of my posts. I stated it twice now. How many times must I state it for you to read it?
In fact, I state reasons I do not believe anymore with most every post.
You do not have to post it anymore for my sake. You have cleared that up.
2 )I followed the religion of my parents, just as most people do. I thought I felt what you call the holy ghost also, but I now understand what causes feelings when you think about things.
You talk about how you thought you felt the Holy ghost,but now you understand what causes feelings when you think about things.
.That is the basis on which you lost faith in God. Am I going to say you were wrong in losing your faith, NO
The reason I can't,is because I have not experienced what you have,therefore,I am unable to judge that which I have not experienced or have been tested on.
But I never said that my faith was based on my feelings or based on the religion of my parents .
I have made very clear the basis for my faith and those 2 reasons are never mentioned
3)When I was a kid, I had no idea what caused emotional feelings when I thought about stuff. I am a grown up now.
I understand that when I think about stuff, I get emotional reactions to what I think about.
Is this some mystery to you?
Voices in your head are called thoughts. Grown ups should know this.
Now maybe if I am a smart ass about this, you will remember it this time
The basis for your unbelief,if I understand you correctly,is based on your feelings,and that you now understand " that when I think about stuff, I get emotional reactions to what I think about."
"When I was a kid, I had no idea what caused emotional feelings when I thought about stuff. I am a grown up now."
I think I understand what you mean ,but,your reasons for your unbelief are totally different from the reasons for my faith,so any comparison between the 2,I think you would agree, is not valid .
I did not FEEL my prayers were answered, based on the results,I knew my prayers were answered.
I know whom I prayed to and he answered as promised
Now,someone who does not believe in God has to try and rationalize the results by attributing them to coincidences,or try to claim they never happened,that my mind deceived me into believing it happened,when it really didn't. Thereby ,I am judged to be delusional.
But,in reality,who is the delusional one?
One could rightfully claim that those who have never experienced those events, and don't understand what caused them to occur,have deluded themselves into believing they can explain something they truly,know nothing about.
I am sure the ancients that prayed to Zeus for rain were as convinced as you about answered prayers.
You show no acceptance of my logic, nor even acknowledge my logic. I feel you ignore it as you do the silly animal sacrifices.
