I'll agree with that. If you have malice or hatred for God, you have just about yielded the proof you deny as possible. You are saying that he does exits. Although it is not wrong to hate some of the terrible things that were done for the sake of the idea of God.
<quoted text>
But the problem is that the claim that the words in the bible are not God's words can't be disproven either. Besides that, multitudes of different meanings are ascribed to them by countless religious factions, so those have to be sorted out first.
The different religious sects or factions, does not rule out the existence of God. God exist and he wants us to seek him.
Religious factions are man made.

So you either didn’t read my post pr didn’t understand it, in either case well done for showing further evidence of your ignorance
It is not science that is lacking, it is you that is in denial yet you still manage to use science to tell the world that you believe science is lacking, as we already know, you are not only ignorant you are hypocritical
I don't need to read any thing. Science is still not having the ultimate answers to human complicated.

Hey :) don't let the superstitious people get to you. Remember what they are, good entertainment and never loose your sense of humor. One more thing, when they say "so you think 95% of the people on the planet are wrong" I'd like to take a world poll now and I bet there are more people that believe in the scientific truth that an old, dying superstition.:)

God is one. The bible mentioned Baals, Asherah, Dagon, etc, as sub gods, and God also warned the people of Israel not to worship those disgusting gods.

Yes you can, just as with any other book, it’s easy. However I think you are not talking about the physicality but about the interpretation. In that case too you are mistaken, there are as many interpretations as there are sects of your religion (and every one of the 38000+ sects of christianity claims to be the only correct one). The nice thing about reading it as a book rather than a as a religious guide is that you don’t need to interpret based on what you are told to interpret but instead apply logic and literalness of the writing.

However those passages each mention other gods which you deny. Psalm 82:1-2 even mentions that he joined them, went amongst them, it does not mention anything about over them or subjugation of them, i.e. He considered himself equal, not above.

Yes the babble states he warned not to worship them but not that they were disgusting but he was jealous of them and he said so himself,
“You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God”(Exodus 20:4-5).

Say what? He is said in Revelation 19:6 (KJV) to be omnipotent yet he is petty?

Why is your view so different from your gods? So again you are ignoring the word of your god, some christian you turned out to be.

Science is working on answers, unlike the godbots who are stuck in the bronze age yet willing to embrace that science that they decry to decry that science.

Of course even the "95%" would have to admit that with a best case scenario 2/3 of the people on the planet are wrong. There is a slue of gods out there and the only thing they all agree on is that the others don't exist.

Hmm, maybe they are more right than I give them credit for. The whole world is at least 99.9% atheist!

That's interesting because that could mean there is life out there!
....and since the planet earth has been continuously bombarded by intersteller debris in the form of asteroids, comets, etc since being formed, those compounds have 'hitched a ride' here as well.

Organic compounds and other essential substances in deep space, the ability of these chemicals to NATURALLY combine to create base elements for life (RNA).....

There was something about Jehovah as meaning son of some father god that was also father to other gods in the region.

In any case you might be missing a good bet. Maybe Baal was the chief and Jehovah only the sub-God, or else why did the people of Israel keep going back to him every the leaders turned their backs. I hear that Baal was quite a party guy, though I didn't like having to sacrifice one's first born to him. Kind of puts a depressing palour on the party parlour

Location has buggerall to do with babble BS

The babble also states there were multiple gods as I have already shown you with the last hour, it even claims you god joined them. A point that you CHOOSE to ignore, that’s true christianity in a nutshell

Things that make me think:
Odd that an Aussie, talking to a fellow Aussie, would use an American reference. One would think that with all the racial issue the white Australians had with the Australian Aborigines, that a suitable Australian reference would have been used, thus ensuring the understanding between the two Aussies.
I am sure that many excuses will or could be made, but I wouldn't believe them. I believe that someone is lying about being an Aussie.

"Religious factions are man made."

Along with the bible and all the rituals.

Now some religious factions are so washed out they don't even seem to recognize a God, but mainly, yes, the God believers of some sort certainly don't rule him out -- by definition. You might be surprised, but nor do I, even if there are some atheist fundies who do.

I never knew God wanted us to seek him out. I wouldn't mind his wanting us to, but I have always been fascinated to follow up any leads even without knowing or considering his wants.

It is estimated that even today, after 4.5 billion years of “hoovering” 14 million tons of dust, around 180,000 tons of meteors and between 10 and 20 thousand tones of meteorites fall on earth every year. A percentage of this debris (from stone debris) is organic.
