You have yet to present any evidence that this "Christ" person is real, thus, the only logical and sane thing to do is consider it nothing but a myth. So no, I am not wrong.
Read the words of Jesus in a red letter edition of the King James Bible and he will speak to you.

You can not test for spirits in a laboratory, but these spirits do exist.
if there is no way to get evidence of them how do you know this? from the same people that told you all the other proven lies in the bible? why would any sane person believe that?

we can prove unseen things, yet you have no proof for this myth...why?

Many people have the wrong idea that Jesus came just to give us things here on earth and to make sure we always feel good. Jesus didn't come to call the righteous just to make them happy and to make them feel that they are better than others. Jesus came to call sinners to repentance, so that they can learn of him and inherit everlasting life in the kingdom of heaven. We as Christians are no better on this earth than anyone and Jesus said people may judge us and seperate us from their company and reproach us and cast out our name as evil, but our reward is not here on this earth, it will be when we are with our saviour in heaven. People who find ways to judge and hate others just to make themselves righteous, are looking for rewards in this world.

The whole context of our Holy Bible is fixed and always acting on the same principles. It is a regular pattern that leads us to Jesus. Only God could have arranged this. The Creator of heaven and earth has the power to prepare a new Heaven and Earth and he can give us life everlasting.

Our Creator is excellent and his power has no limit. God has given all power in heaven and in earth to his Son Jesus, who has gone to prepare a place for whosoever will believe in him. There will be a New Heaven and a New Earth and Jesus will be the light of it and death will not enter there.

Wrong!
Your problem in this regard is that, you don't believe because you hate hearing the truth.

The Bible account of creation is correct, it is our way of understanding that can be wrong.

<quoted text>And again, physical apparatus for experiments, can not be used to measure or test for spiritual evidences.
That is where the argument is( lies).
As far as anyone can demonstrate, there are no witches, demons, ghosts etc.

Simply by not believing in them, they disappear to all intents and purposes. They are not real, they are artifacts of disturbed mind. A lot of people in mental trouble used to be thought possessed, but now we understand brain diseases better. Amazing what the right prescription can do to "exorcise" non-existent demons. We don't run pigs off cliffs anymore.

Question 1. Yes. And yet while I must make choices, and be responsible for them, the choices I make must be influenced by my past, my experiences, my temperament...all things over which I have limited control.

Question 2. No. We have no evidence for immortality. We can only observe that people die. In some cases, we can even watch the progressive dissolving of their soul as diseases like Alzheimers rob them step by step of themselves. It might be a sad reality and you might wish you could live forever, but that does not make it true. 99% of all this religion is peoples' attempts to avoid the unpleasant reality. You will cease to exist one day.

Now, you still have not explained how a God who knew from the beginning, an infinite time ago...what He would do for all the rest of Time, and therefore cannot make any fresh choices. He has no Free Will!

No. Planet earth, for now is the only one we KNOW that sustains life.

That is a big difference. There are an estimated

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, 000

planets (10 to the power of 24) in the known universe. That is more planets than there are grains of sand on all the world's beaches. Try to get your head around that! How many of these, by chance alone, do you imagine could sustain life?
