Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

No it would show a solidarity and unity on the so called Christian beliefs and path to heaven.

What with there being thousands of Christian denominations alone and each one claiming they and they alone have it right it creates mass confusion so badly it's hilarious. It would be like if we had thousands of theories of gravity.

The bible says god sent these prophets and performed magic tricks oops miracles to clearly demonstrate the proper way and keep his people on the right path. Even for minor variations god throws a fit. Yet now we have thousands of Christian denominations alone and all of them teaching much different things from each other and god shrugs his shoulders and allows it?

If so he either doesn't exist, doesn't care about billions choosing the wrong christian denomination or the bible lied.

<quoted text>If there was only one, then the atheist idea that there is no free will would be true.

But since there are so many different forms of Christianity (amongst other religions and non-religions), that shoots out your idea, now doesn't it?

I don't know, but I think that God wouldn't care if there's three or 300 or 3 million different denominations, so long as we worship Him I think He be happy. That's what He wants, and that's what He's getting.

What's the problem?

Why do you call them 'sects'?
Have you ever bothered to really find out why there are so many?
The statistic of Christian denominations takes into consideration cultural distinctions of denominations in different countries, so there is overlapping of many denominations. Although many of the are exactly the same, they still wanna be unique. I don't know why.
There are really only three basic types of Christian, Roman Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox. All the other 41,000-ish are offshoots of those three and have the same basic core beliefs.

You keep lying about god with out presenting any evidence.

When asked for evidence, you attack atheists and scientists instead of manning up and admitting that you're a dishonest, wholly innefective liar here to spread your ignorant hate-cult.

Not really is being very kind. There are Christian churches that believe and teach doctrines that are night and day different.

Agree. Hence fundies will think that christians in other churches will go to hell.

More liberal christians will think that they are all the same. Of course it doesnt add up, cause you would think the same God would give a consistent message. As I pointed out to Muq, it is within the power of an all powerful God, to implant the same gospel message to everyone across every time and place, so everyone could understand clearly what is the correct religion. As this doesnt happen is proof of God being imaginary.

I agree. Most try to make god fit their existing lifestyles and prejudices.

OMG dude, what is wrong with you?

I've honestly told you that I cannot provide evidence of God to you, only God can do that.

Yet you incessantly call me a liar...

Exactly and well said! If a god existed and cared he would not allow his followers to stray down the wrong path let alone thousands of wrong paths!

In the bible he felt the need to step in when people are shrimp but not for Christianity alone breaking up into thousands of different denominations!? Lol!

Certainly and many churches are night and day different from others. About the only thing they have in common is believing in Jesus.

No. They didn't charge for those.
Yeah, the "patients" weren't charged. The money came from somewhere though.

Tithes, donations, concerts, car washes, etc. They employ MANY types of fundraisers.

They gotta pay the bills somehow...

Tower away? What do you mean tower away?

I'm so sorry, your highness, that I didn't respond to you immediately and at the time of your choosing...

What the hell difference does it make if I respond to you in two seconds or two days?
