Thank my mom for her LOVE that was overlooked so many times. Both of my parents were smart ENOUGH and never questioned thher Catholic Faith .

It's called speak to text you can blame Steve Jobs or apple. I don't proof read these text. Sorry for that.
Show his existence. Ummm. For one you woke up this morning. Your body and mind were able to function well enough to converse. I'm sure somewhere a missionary saved a life today!
If your looking for a man to appear and call out your name. That's not going to happen. For everything he was to do has already been done. This is where Faith comes into play. Remember it's not magic! Magic is made to deceive you. The whole concept of religion is to believe. The mystery of Faith. If you don't "believe" you can't receive. Try going to a catholic mass, you just might learn something.
I'm sure none of you practice Christmas or Easter.
Take that money out of you wallet or purse and burn it! It says in God we trust!
Give it a break you don't have to act out negatively to get attention.
Best part is GOD still forgives you!

In other words, there is no proof that any god ever worshipped ever existed.

Thanks, we know.

By the way, that tide, coming and going, was his proof of god.

You can Google it and find YouTube videos of lots of his nonsense.

That is not evidence. Me waking up does not prove a god exists nor does it prove that your god is that god.

That's what makes it hard! I'll just keep believing and spreading his name. When I think of atheist I think of Chinese communist or Russians. They adopted it to not allow people to converse behind closed doors and to not have a greater common goal. yours your you re you are......that for all the Grammar police.

Well. you two appear to be on the same page with tides and waking up. If that is all you both have, then I doubt you will get many rational thinking converts. But, I'm sure the pope is proud of his flock.

I heard Russians and Chinese are converting to Christianity. That is what is called Babylon and they are synonymous with it. The NT says Satan is the god of this world and when the true Messiah comes, everybody will know God and have a choice. God will reason with all flesh up until the end. The resurrection will mark the new beginning of a new age and there will be a new heaven and earth.
