I read this on another discussion board, was charmed and wanted to share it.
It illustrates the difference between Reason and Faith beautifully.

I used to ask my dad, "What does God look like?".
And he'd say like us, that we were made in his image.

And I'd say, "Well does he have eyes?"
And my dad would say well I believe he would.
And I'd say "Why? Eyes are photon receptors. Why does God need a surface to capture photons. Doesn't he just "know" everything?"

And I'd say, "Well does God have feet?"
And my dad would say well I believe he would.
And I'd say "Why? Can't he just appear anywhere?"

And I'd ask, "Well does God have a penis?"
And my dad would get angry.
And I'd say "What would he need reproductive parts for? Is there a lady God out there he wants to get all up inside her?"

And I'd ask, "Does God have a stomach and intestines and does he go poop?"
And my dad would basically just stop talking with me and say there was a God and that was that.

If you have a problem with this study,you should share your expert opinion with those who authotrd it,not me.
I never said the study was evidence for God's existence,nor did I imply it.
It seems that you have a tendency to see things that are not there.
The studies merely point out problems that exist in society.
As opposed to the very foolish,who,in their state of ignorance,claim that Christians are delusional,believe in magic and have emotional problems as the basis for their belief in God.
Some of your more famous atheists most assuredly had some very serious mental problems,,,

Silly man. You are well known for lying so no one really believes you will do what you say. Your "god" will tell you it's ok to use the disgusting term "tard" ...no matter what we say.
A moral conscience and a bit of empathy should tell you it's NOT ok.

"To those of you that WANT to believe in a god...So be it!
Live your lives!(But keep out of other people's lives)
To those of you that believe you that that there is a god...You are just ignorant!"
^^^^We could both say these lines ad infinitum. Does it make any difference?
Do you really think you are helping anyone to believe in your fantasy by posting here?
You blather on about "proof."
How you are "saved" from some vague imaginary threat.
Why don't you tell us how you are a better person because of your imaginary "forgiveness?"
Don't tell us what you DON'T do...like drugs and homosexual sex.
Tell us what you DO to make the world a better place because you are in it.
(besides posting your nonsense on Topix, that is..*chuckle*)
By the way, you still drink, don't you?
Hold that thought, as your clock ticks down, and your end gets closer... Hoping you change your mind!
God is real, and no amount of dis-belief will change that!

BTW about the "Will of the People"... I was going to point out that the will of the people in CA was Over ruled by Un-righteousness!

Lame attempt to reverse the burden of proof. If you had a shred of intelligence you would recognize how stupid this sounds.
"Filling the gaps with "god didn't do it""?? Are you serious?
I'm asking you seriously if you are on medication for a mental disorder. I'm just curious about that. Your posts are irrational and I have a feeling you might suffer from some sort of problem. If so, I hope you are getting help.
Sure...
Whatever you want to believe, say I'm on meds... whatever!
Sounded more stupid from you, than from me!

Sin is sin. If you sin, it is against all three members of the Godhead. This is different from denying God or the Holy Spirit.
I agree sin is sin. I do not agree about denying God or the holy spirit.

Look this is were I think you understand of this concept is not correct.

Hebrews 10:26
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left.

The bible explictly say that if you have the correct doctrine of the truth (which all christians sects say they have) including yourself and if you willfully sin then no sacrifice for sins is left.

So the unforgivable sin would be a sin against the TRUTH.

Hebrews 10:26
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the TRUTH, no sacrifice for sins is left.

John 16:13
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the TRUTH.

If you don't have the TRUTH in the first place then you cannot sin against the Holy Spirit.

This then means the heavy burden is upon those that have the TRUTH and then willfully keep sinning.

Ecclesiastes 5:4-8
4 When you make a vow to God, do not delay in fulfilling it. He has no pleasure in fools; fulfill your vow. 5 It is better not to vow than to make a vow and not fulfill it.

I would like to see what other religious ones think about the understanding of how you can sin against the Holy Spirit, since they are the ones who claim to have the truth.

Good night, you crazy, crazy person.
Seems that you conveniently overlooked the reasons for the decline
of Atheism..
Here is a reminder
The Decline of Atheism
According to Munich theologian Wolfhart Pannenberg, "Atheism as a theoretical position is in decline worldwide."
According to Oxford's Alister McGrath, Atheism's "future seems increasingly to lie in the private beliefs of individuals rather than in the great public domain it once regarded as its habitat," Christianity Today.[1]
Reasons cited for the decline of atheism include:
Substantive challenges to naturalistic explanations for the origin of life;
Substantive challenges to psychological theories viewing religion as a pathology, and a scientific demonstration of the health benefits of a spiritual life;
Philosophical challenges to the presuppositions and axioms of atheism, such as materialism;
The decline of Marxism and Leninism;
Tenuousness of belief in atheism by many of its own believers;
Reduction in atheism and resurgence of theistic belief worldwide;
Inhuman acts committed by atheists throughout the 20th century;
The origin of life
The origin of life (abiogenesis) has always provided something of a challenge for atheism. To date, life has never, under any circumstances, been observed spontaneously arising from non-life. Further, as the study of biology progresses, scientists and the public at large are becoming ever more aware of the profound complexity, intricacy and beauty evident in even the simplest forms of life.
It was detail at this level, specifically the fact that a single cell can contain more information than the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, that convinced the well known atheist Anthony Flew that atheism was indefensible, and caused him to convert to deism.
Psychology
Another traditional bastion of atheism has been the belief that religion is a form of psychological pathology. This view was promoted by Freud, and more recently by R. Stark & W. S. Bainbridge in their work, Theory of Religion. The traditional argument was that religion was both the result of neurosis, and the cause of further deterioration into neurosis.
Recently, however, these ideas have come under fire by medical and psychological research. The Mayo Clinic did an analysis of 850 mental health studies involving religious belief and involvement and found that mental health was positively affected by faith.[2]
Subsequently, 1,200 studies at research centers around the world have come to similar conclusions. For example, Psychologie Heute, a German journal, cites the marked improvement of multiple sclerosis patients in Germany's Ruhr District because of "spiritual resources." [3]
Professor Vitz did a study of the most prominent professed atheists in the last 400 years; it appears that those individuals neither were nor are paragons of mental health, and that a disproportionate number had strained relationships with their fathers.[4][5]
Some challenge Prof. Vitz's argument that the temperament of an atheist arises from a strained relationship with his father, without addressing the possibility that both the atheism and the strained paternal relationship may have stemmed from the child's native cantankerous and rebellious temperament.
As a result of these facts, many have become convinced that religion is psychologically beneficial, and that it is atheism which is both a cause and a result of mental illness.

This is why!
He sent you a Savior to take you out of that eternal punishment,
and... you'd spit in His eye?
What an ingrate!
Yet.... He still offers you salvation... Take it, and
say "Thank you"...
