As I go through all the back dated threads on the christian web sites I see all the 90 day christian backsliders who have come and gone. The 90 day experts. Who came and told us all the secrets of God and told us how much they loved Jesus and that they were a new creature...BORN AGAIN.

And that they were the righteousness of Jesus.

IT IS SO SAD

THAT THE BEAUTIFUL NAME OF THE LORD

IS SO POLLUTED AND DESECRATED BY THIS KIND OF SILLINESS AND FOOLISHNESS.

ARE YOU TIRED OF PLAYING CHRISTIAN?

COME TO THE LIGHT AND BRING ALL YOUR DEEDS TO THE LIGHT AND REPENT FROM SIN.

I have also had atheists shove their disbelief on me. I think we can safely agree that there's always going to be people that don't respect boundaries.

I normally don't argue over it. It isn't that important to me anyone believes or not. I can be friends with just about anyone.

Here is the part believers consistently ignore: if you are the one asserting the existence of something, the burden of proof is on YOU.

If someone says "All crows are black," then all anyone has to do to disprove that statement is to find one white crow. Until that discovery is made, the statement stands.

If someone says "Out there, somewhere, there exists a white crow," it cannot be disproven, because no matter how many black crows are produced to prove that all crows are black, the believer in the white crow will just keep saying, "I know the white crow is out there somewhere. I have faith it exists." In other words, the statement is not falsifiable.

Unbelievers don't have to prove there is no god. The absence of evidence for a god's existence is enough.

If believers insist there is a god "out there somewhere/they just feel it/take it on faith," they have to prove it to be taken seriously by serious-minded people.

I believe there is a God. That statement still stands. So until you prove I wasn't created, the statement is not falsifiable. Is that what you are saying? I don't think I need to prove there is or isn't. But if someone doesn't like what I believe, then show me what is real. What is YOUR black cow? I'm not asking you to believe what I do, but if you don't, simply don't judge me for it. Really, what is your black cow?

You misunderstand. To say a statement is not falsifiable, means it is not a rational statement. For a statement to be rational, there has to be a way to prove that it is not true. If there is nothing that would or could convince the speaker that his statement is not true, then the speaker is not being rational.

Someone on here is fond of bringing up the Flying Spaghetti Monster. They use all the same jargon about the Flying Spaghetti Monster that believers use about God, in order to make the point that believers in anything that cannot be objectively proven or disproven are being irrational.

Now some people are quite proud of being irrational, and call what they do an act of faith. They are proud that they accept something purely on faith, with no rational basis for it. And that is fine.

But do not kid yourselves or the rest of us by insisting that your believe in a god is rational. It is not.

All anyone can rationally say is what science offers proof for, up to this point in time. All scientific and rational views of reality have to be constantly scrutinized and challenged by new information as it is uncovered. If new information disproves any part of a theory, then it must be abandoned, and the theory must be adjusted to accommodate the new findings. This is a never-ending process for science and rationality.

Religion and belief in god, on the other hand, stand on tradition, and won't allow themselves to be completely questioned or challenged. You'll hear some pseudo-scientists claim they are investigating their belief in god from some scientific angle, but at the end of the day they only move the line. Things they can no longer argue with they admit, but then they will pose a question that science has not yet answered (usually because of the current limit in technology), and say that is where god exists, or say it is "proof" that god exists because science hasn't yet answered a particular question. So they never alter their fundamental belief: I believe there is a god out there somewhere. They also like to marvel at things and say they are so complex/wondrous/miraculous/et c, that they "prove" the existence of a god. And again that's fine if you "feel" that way, but don't pass it off as rationality.

So what scientific interpretation of reality I personally find most satisfying is irrelevant. The only question that matters is whether or not I'm willing to change the interpretation I favor when a new scientific fact disproves any part of it.

Reality consists of: things we know through our senses and scientific investigation; things we don't yet know, but will eventually know through our senses and scientific investigation as our technologies improve; and things we can't know because they are now and will always be inaccessible to scientific investigation, about which we can now say nothing, and never will be able to say anything rational or meaningful.

so I guess both sides will " never be able to say anything rational or meaningful."? So stop dogging Christians. Live and let live. Don't say they aren't rational and then say your last sentence. Just admit nobody knows at this point.

My point exactly. Christianity, just as any other religion or subjective, emotional belief, is irrational.
