God is God thus He has always been. Angel I'm not falling for your nonsense. No matter what I say you will not accept it. Trust me I've been down this road before. As I said earlier, Jesus himself could come to earth today, sit down with you and explain it all, and you would still argue and not accept it. Thats just how you are. You are so entrenched in your worldview that nothing contrary to it is acceptable. There is no way you can know there is no God. Your pride will not let you even admit that much. Sad.

"Anti" I have done my best to address and answer all of your questions to the best of my ability. I have done so without insult or mockery and I would like the favor returned.
If you could now answer my previous question:

ITS JUST ONE QUESTION

Why should anyone believe the Bible is divinely inspired?

Prove it.

If you get a special excuse for your mythical and highly UNLIKELY godling?

Then why not take the more logical path, and excuse the universe from needing a creator/beginning?

It seems to be the case anyhow-- the big bang starts with a something-- the singularity.

Nothing is claimed about where that singularity came from-- it could have **always** been.

That would be amazing-- seeing as how your jewsus is 100% mythical.

It would be akin to the Easter Bunny sitting down and explaining why easter eggs must be colored with pretty stains.

There may be a god.

But one thing is certain: it is **not** the god **you** believe in!

That is patently clear.

You believe in the myth that is the ugly bible.

And?

The very existence of the bible itself is proof that there are NO GOOD GODS.

Because the bible's very existence is so heinous, so engendering of hate and oppression--

-- that no god who CARED would suffer it's existence.

So the fact the ugly bible exists-- is proof that it's god cannot.

Indeed.

Did you note the lovely-lovely irony of his final statement about pride?

When his previous ones were literally dripping with his own certain pride?

I laughed out loud, I did.

angel its not Gods job to convince little ole you that He is real and that His word is real. He gave you a brain and a soul and the ability to make a choice. Apparently you have chosen atheism and totally denied Him. One day you will have to pay the consequences that you won't be ready for. Thats the most sad thing about it but its your life.

You have no evidence of an afterlife. And no idea what it would be like if it existed. That is it better to live your life in the present and not in case of some imaginary future.

Not having a conversation with God,I'm having a conversation with you.

you say "the book is divinely written". I say "how do you know?"

Its not a trap or a trick or any type of word play or atheist mind trick. I also will not insult you and tell you that you are sad and so is your life as you have done to me.

If it's not "god's" job then I don't know who's it would be...if "he" is leaving it up to you then you are not doing a good job at all. Now that last part of your statement is the most important...We have a choice...we've made a choice...now that you've said that and you are aware that it's not going to change then you should be able to go back to your christian forum, and talk about "god" all you want to darlin.

you think its God's job to prove to you that He exist????? Sorry man but you aren't nearly as important as you think you are. He already gave us His word and that is sufficient. Only fools choose not to believe.

God has already given us not only His word but His creation to prove His existence. You choose not to believe and ultimately hell will be your fate. Its your choice not His. Please read John 3:16 and you will clearly see his its His intent that everyone spends eternity in His presence.

The one you claim is the messiah told people assembled to hear him speak that he would return during the lifetime of some of his listeners.

Mark 9:1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

Matthew 16:28 Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.

It has been over 2,000 years.I'm pretty sure that if those words were acutally uttered by an actual jesus, all the listeners are dead now. They did not see him return. So, did your jesus lie, or did the evangelists make that quote up?

I don't think that he/she is interested in conversation. They have decided to not use the reply tool, and have ignored all of us as you have seen. Good luck darlin ;)

The bible is **not** proof of anything.

For one thing?

It's so full of mistakes, errors, lies, fraud, evil and other nonsense, that it couldn't **possibly** be from an actual...

... god.

I mean-- the very existence OF the bible?

Is proof that there are NO GODS who CARE.

None.

Why?

Because the bible is the direct cause of more evil than anything else-- for starters.
