It's not irrational to believe in God. Actually, it's just plain inexcusable to accept the three demons' messages.

Irrational...you keep saying this word...I do not think it means what you think it means.

So, it's perfectly rational to believe in something with no evidence it exists, has properties that can't be completely agreed upon by any single person, never tries to make its presence known to everybody but requires belief to get to paradise and is thought to be responsible for the deaths of 10s of millions of people but, again, without any evidence?

Wow, convinced me!

I claim that evidence for God exists and that the evidence is much stronger than the common descent postulate, for which no evidence exists, yet you are very happy to believe that fairytale.

Imagine that. I also believe in DNA and the fossil record. Here's the proof: everythingimportant.org/devolution

What a surprise. Another joke goes right over your head.

And seriously, you're still pushing that devolution crap? It's made up nonsense. You can't devolve. You've been told and shown this numerous times in other threads.

How did you get so mightily misinformed? The single property that defines God is that of maximality. God is maximally powerful, maximally knowledgeable, maximally gracious and maximally good. If God fell short of what a supreme being could actually be, even in the slightest degree, then God wouldn’t be God.

Genesis 3 -
8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
9 And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.
11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat?

So apparently God is either horrible at hide-and-go-seek or he's not all knowing. He also doesn't seem to realize that they ate from the tree either. But I'm sure I'm probably incorrect because I didn't quote from the correct Bible, right?

Sure common ancestry has lots of evidence:

Hence "belief" is superfluous.

And don't forget:

This is correct. God humbles himself and speaks to humans on their level. That's not exactly earth-shattering news.

Its not irrational to consider God a possibility. Its irrational to believe in something when you have no evidence for it. Considering God a possibility and "believing in God" are two different things.

So you also accept the inevitable conclusion that if God exists and has these characteristics, then He must lack Free Will.
