Again, one cannot judge character by whether one is religious or not. That has been debunked many a time. Religionists aren't better or worse than non-religionists and nobody is better for simply being religious. Religious divisions have caused sectarian divisions and war, it isn't an agent of peace. Religion and religious faith is essential to Zionism and Islamism and worse that is in the world.<quoted text>
Again, Adolf Hitler was a Liar and a mass murderer.
So, we only know what Pres Obama believes based on his public statements. Exactly the point I was making. What about Jim Jones? All you do if someone openly religious isn't 'good' is disown them.
What philosophy is that? One might equally argue they must exist in the same world.<quoted text>
In philosophy the idea of the material and non material world exist, one proved and the other of faith.
Nor provide any serious evidence in support of such a proposition. You won't even define your god. Which one(s)?...<quoted text>
People of faith can not prove that God exists or that he created the universe.
More jibberish. Such concepts are useful, defined, in dictionaries and familiar in all human's experience. They have absolutely nothing to do with religion or religious faith.<quoted text>
If one takes a complete materialist view of the world the it is difficult to prove that beauty, friendship and love exist.
No. Religion is plainly man-made and usually parent-given, not revelation and god-given. Religion is a legacy of human historical development. Many people believed all kinds of things in the past.<quoted text>
The number of people who believe in an idea does not indicate the validity of the idea?[
Non-believers simply follow the evidence, we aren't more materialistic than you are.
Platitude to you too.<quoted text>
Have a good day
You seem a typical religionist. You regard witchcraft and voodoo as mumbo jumbo but defend belief in Abrahamic gods and every sort of nonsense imaginable - and without any success I might add. Science and education are undermining religious faith as it has undermined every other mumbo-jumbo. Religion is simply the last bastion of superstition.
And you still haven't defined your god or associated yourself with a religion, probably because you know how stupid you look when you do. Trust me, you don't look any better by trying to avoid these questions.
What god is it you refer to? Define him please.
What value is there in religion?
And why all and any religion rather than none at all?
If you've got anything to say at all, L, let's have it.
