I have no idea-- as soon as you can show PROOF that this ... "god" thing is real?

Then we can talk-- until then? There is no reason to ASSUME that such an unlikely thing (magical sky-fairy) is real.

Is there?

Can you explain your very own existence to me?
Yes. My mother and father had unprotected sex-- nine months later, I was born.

That really is not a mystery; pretty basic stuff.

But I can see how you'd be confused-- you assume things without asking for proof...(such as god).

Actually?

Lincoln-log-for-brains is wrong as usual.

Science is NOT AT ALL silent on gods' "domain".

In the past? Everyone just KNEW that lightning was "a direct message from god".

Science came along and proved lightning is just electrical discharge in the atmosphere to the ground, created by large masses of air moving quickly over the ground-- EXACTLY like rubbing your feet in carpet, to get a spark from the doorknob, only on a grand scale.

In the past? Everyone just KNEW that the stars were heavenly beings--gods of some sort.

Science came along and proved the stars were just distant suns.

In the past? Everyone just KNEW that sickness was evil demons sent by god to punish people.

Science came along and proved that most sickness comes from microscopic life forms, invading a person's body.

Science has a LOT to say about what was formerly "god".

And with each SCIENTIFIC STATEMENT? The god in question either vanishes or grows smaller and more weak.

Science is ANYTHING BUT silent about god....!

If you believe god is possible, it is your duty to present the evidence.
Since the dawn of time, not a single theist has ever produced any valid evidence. So we must conclude after several centuries of lies that you are definitely mentally ill and have no interest in learning about the universe according to observational evidence.
God never has been real, its a fiction created by mentally ill people who must lie, because they have no evidence for their hallucinations.

That's just it: Constantine did >>not<< have control--there were problems, and squabbling between factions with different religious views, that sort of thing.
So by force-converting everyone, by sword or die, that put paid to the religious squabbling, as he no doubt murdered all the different leaders of those now-illegal religions. Or else they converted to the new one he had just invented.
Your Christianity started with a mass-murder of anyone who refused to play along.
Like so many religions that came before it...
Yeah......."you" must realize "all" of this is unsubstantiated ...(except)...

Christianity "did" begin with mass-murder ..(of the Christians themselves )..Who had to wait 200 years for Constantine to be born , before the persecution of Christianity would come to an end ...

Because "witnessing" is judgment-writ-large.

The "witness" is JUDGING that the person is not GOOD ENOUGH for their savior's blessing, and must meet some arbitrary STANDARD.

If that were not true? There would be no need to "witness" at all.

So it's pretty ugly behavior.

That is a flat lie-- there WERE NO christians prior to 300CE, until Constantine had written the Genuine Official Christian Bible™?

There were NO christians to BE killed you silly person!

Don't lie-- it's unbecoming.

Lie. Without the Genuine Official Christian Bible™, there were no such people.

Sorry-- but that's the facts-jack.

That would be you: projecting your own obsessive-compulsive behavior onto other people.

Sorry, but that's the way it is-- not EVERYONE is as OCD as you appear to be.

Try visiting your local insane asylum-- in there, you will meet lots and lots of people who use FAITH instead of reality.

We properly call them insane, of course...

... the ONLY difference between them and you?

Is that THEIR faith is of things that have not been given the Official Stamp of Approval™ by the majority, but yours has....

Faith in the US Military - Amendment 1 -

"The U.S. Department of Defense has never and will never single out a particular religious group for persecution or prosecution," Pentagon spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen said in a statement. "The Department makes reasonable accommodations for all religions and celebrates the religious diversity of our service members."

"Service members can share their faith (evangelize), but must not force unwanted, intrusive attempts to convert others of any faith or no faith to one's beliefs (proselytization)," Christensen added.

He also said that "when religious harassment complaints are reported, commanders take action based on the gravity of the occurrence on a case by case basis." He did not specify what the range of penalties could be.

This is called an appeal to stupiidity.

All that matters when selling cult morals is whether or not you have proof of god. You don't, so it's your mental illness

Lincoln, the creationist troll who believes fossils aren't really there, telling us to be nimble in our thinking.

How about being nimble enough to provide proof of god instead of being a passive aggressive god bot, spam posting your halfwit opinions?
