I see you go back to double standards-<quoted text>If you think not believing in something that has zero evidence is blind faith, then you do not know what blind faith is. You are perverting the phrase, just as you so often do.
You claim I have no understanding, but you cannot show I have no understanding, it is just your opinion. I think I understand just fine, and you never seem able to prove I do not understand. I study this stuff all the time. I see no big mystery. I even understand why people blindly believe. I do not think it is smart, but I understand it. Just what do you think I am failing to understand?
You guys love to accuse, but always fail to be specific.
If a blind person believes in stars, maybe you should ask him why. I cannot speak to the evidence he may be able to obtain as a blind person. Maybe he does have to rely on the trust of others. But I am not blind, and I can see there is zero evidence of a god, so I am atheist.
BTW, I cannot see how the belief in stars can be dangerous, but I can see how believing a god inspired a book of commands without question can be dangerous.
This is your post Mike:
"For the record, I would think some of the claims of the bible are not complete fabrications. But we cannot know which are and which are not. So if someone is making a serious claim about a god, and we cannot know if he is being truthful, or the writing is accurate, why follow the claim as if a god actually made said statements or had such wants? This is blind faith."
If you don't believe in God or the Bible, why would you say "I would think some of the claims of the Bible are not complete fabrications. You need to find you a story and stick to it. You can't believe one without believing the other. The whole paragraph is cluster mess. First, for the record you think some of the claims of the Bible are not complete fabrications; however, you question if the author of the scripture is truthful and accurate and then ask why follow the claim as if a god actually made said statements. If you believe some of the claims are not complete fabrications, you are going off blind faith.
