Since there is no evidence that there is no god, atheists use their faith (complete trust) to strengthen their belief that god isn't real.
Oh, and there's no evidence that there are no dragons. So you are saying you have faith that dragons are not real.

Yes. And I have faith that leprechauns aren't real. And I have faith that aliens haven't visited earth.

You see, I've got no problem admitting when something is a belief of mine - like I believe that God is real.

Atheists claim to cling on to evidence-based realities only but refuse to admit that they believe god isn't real.

It's your shortcoming, not mine.

Used to be a tavern over at Bradfordsville called "Riverside". Sat beside the Rolling Fork River.

Full of rednecks.

Is that where you got your name?

I had many a fight in there. The owner hit me over the head with a homemade blackjack once. It was a tube sock sewed full of buck shot.

Thank God I was drunk. Or I would have hurt the man.

Yup. You're also using your faith to tell you that God isn't real.

I'm glad you're admitting that.

I thought it was the inspired by god part that made the difference, and the appearance of an angel of god. I guess you don't believe it
and if you don't believe it ...how can you believe any of it?

I knew it was pointless. Your mind is so made up you are unable to think of anything else.
Matthew 5:18 simply means that all prophecy will come to pass, just like says Isaiah 7:14.
Cherry pickin' again! Try reading the entire thought, not just one verse.

17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

18 For verily I say unto you,***Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.***

19 ****Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven:**** but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Why do you think all laws are permanent, forever and to everyone?
Well, if you believe in Jesus and God, yes.
RiversideRedneck wrote:
I'm sure you know about the "eating pork is bad" law. And I'm sure you've used it on people. But do you know that in Acts, God showed the Apostle that all animals were now clean?
If you believe a hungry Peter over God and Jesus, "The next day, as they were on their journey and approaching the city, Peter went up on the housetop about the sixth hour to pray. And he became hungry and wanted something to eat, but while they were preparing it, he fell into a trance and saw the heavens opened and something like a great sheet descending, being let down by its four corners upon the earth. In it were all kinds of animals and reptiles and birds of the air. And there came a voice to him:“Rise, Peter; kill and eat.” "

Then, no.

If you do not believe in the bible, you can easily see that people wrote things into it so that they could do what they wanted and restrict others from doing what they wanted.

It would have been more convincing had all the laws been in one place, never changed and included a law against pedophilia.

And if you look real hard you can see which book you put "first" and the one you put last..

Joseph Smith is not a prophet from God,, sorry.

Do you know that mormons believe there is 2 sins that cant be forgiving, instead of the one God said??

JS, wrote his on book! And his book is nothing like the Holy Bible!

The Holy Bible is a phenomenal account of history, comprised of 66 books, written over approximately 1600 years, by at least 40 distinct authors. The Old Testament (Old Covenant) contains 39 books written from approximately 1500 to 400 BC, and the New Testament (New Covenant) contains 27 books written from approximately 40 to 90 AD. The Jewish Bible (Tenach) is the same as the Christian Old Testament, except for its book arrangement. The original Old Testament was written mainly in Hebrew, with some Aramaic, while the original New Testament was written in Greek.

There is only ''one'' Holy Bible,

Joseph smith, was a self apointed prophet. Who has added to and taken away from the Holy Bible.

But then again, you will believe a lie faster then you would the truth.
