How can it be between me and this god concept that you cannot even make a case for? Not only can you not show proof you are unable to even articulate a basic argument for your assertion!
All you can do is burp you believe god exists? Seriously? Completely unable to even craft a semi logical case to back up your assertion? Nothing? You got nothing?

I guess you missed the "I believe in God because" part...

You're such an opinionated fool.

Similar, from what I have heard to what people experience on psychedelics. That doesn't make the experience true or correctly interpreted.
True. I interpret it the way I want.

And I want to interpret it the way I have.

Problem?

But they didn't understand the concept of right and wrong before they ate the fruit right? Or did the bible lie?

You suck at this I must say.

Yes, they did know. It's in Genesis 2 AND Genesis 3...

Genesis 3
2 The woman said to the serpent,“We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,
3 but God did say,‘You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.’”

If someone could scientifically scrutinize God, don't you think they would have by now?

Idiot, I never said we never will be able to, did I?

Is that your "freethinking" hard at work again?

Blah

[QUOTE] Belief comes after evidence that convinces. It is not a choice. Either the evidence is there and convinces you or it isn't or doesn't. The choice comes in *saying* you believe or disbelieve and whether you attempt to delude yourself by not thinking about the subject."

Very good and very true.

I almost lost my faith when I was young. It wasn't until God touched me & spoke to me did I change my thinking on it.

It's an amazing feeling when you feel God's presence, it really is.

I rely on facts not hallucinations like you. Again can you even make a reasonable case for your god assertion beyond your delusion?

Prove your story.

Or accept the true story.

<quoted text>
They knew they shouldn't eat the fruit, if tehy don't want death. It is enough knowledge.

"The woman said to the serpent, "Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat, but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said,'You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
Genesis 3:2-3

But maybe it was not question of good/bad. The result in both ways can be seen as good. But as God had said, with that fruit comes also death. And death seems to be good sometimes, at least many atheists think it is better than eternal life :)

A hallucination is the perception of something not present.

I didn't hallucinate.

Look, ass, you don't have to believe me. But you should accept that want I'm saying is my perception.

It's obvious that I'll never convince you. It should be obvious to you that you'll never make me doubt.

So shut that cock holster you call a mouth.

Because I know.

How do you know when you're in love?

How do you know when you're jealous?

*shrugs*

You just do.

But go on, prove you love your mother.

Agnostic atheist is an oxymoron.
A true atheist does not believe in the existence of deities. They just don't.
So how could someone that doesn't believe in the existence of deities also not "know for sure" if deities exist?
I don't believe in the supernatural. No deities, no magic, no astrology, no Santa, no witches, no hexes, no ghosts.

I don't believe in any of it. I'm a nonbeliever.

Why? Because I have seen no evidence of the supernatural.

If somebody, some day, shows me evidence of the supernatural, I will reconsider.

QUESTION: What am I?

They didn't know it was wrong to disobey.
They didn't know.
They COULDN'T know - that's the way the deity set it up.
They were NOT wrong to eat.
If there is a god, and what you say is true, god is a real sonofabitch.

Dude, love and jealousy are feelings, your own personal, subjective feelings.

You're trying to show there's a god, a real something, something objective, that exists outside of you.

You can't see the difference?

Really?

Wrong.

I'm not trying to show there's a god.

I'm trying to show why I believe in God.

I can definitely tell the difference between wanting a titty, and having one in my mouth.

They were told not to but they couldn't really understand as they didn't have the knowledge of right and wrong until after they ate the fruit.
