Churches like the ones you're describing, the ones that don't have money to spend on their neighborhoods, usually have a small army of volunteers that volunteer their own time and their own money to benefit the neighborhood.
It's not always the particular church or the church owners that benefit the neighborhood, sometimes it's the church guests.
Why are the claims always of the form that we just need to take somebody's word for it? Your claim was that the church does a significant amount of valuable charitable work. I asked for accounting data, and that failed to confirm your claim. Now it's reduced to volunteers doing I don't know what, and people who visit the church. Of course, these are just empty claims as well.

You've got the same problem as Trifecta with his claims about some book. Just claims. No reviews that support his position. No peer-reviewed journal publications that he can point to. Just a fervent hope in the existence of a soul. That seems to be enough for him, and now for you as well in this area - the assumption that the churches must be of some benefit to society, which I'm sure you sincerely believe with all your heart.

But that is not enough for everybody. As you well know, evidence based thinkers require more. You also know that claims such as yours and Trifecta's are rejected if they cannot be supported.

This is precisely why we reject the claim for a god - not because of rebellion, nor the desire to sin without accountability, nor hate for any god, nor bigotry against Christians, but simple skepticism and evidence based thought. We don't believe such claims just because somebody else does, however fervently.

Anyway, my working hypothesis remains that the churches probably do almost nothing of value for the public, and that what little they do with the money they receive could be done more efficiently by the government, which hopefully would return more than 6-7% of the revenues earmarked for helping the needy as it would not be spending any of it on churches or pastors.

And furthermore, I believe that anybody claiming to be a charity and receiving tax breaks should be forced to prove that they deserve them by submitting to regular audits, as the United Kingdom seems to do, which is how we know that so little of the contributions going to Mother Teresa went to the needy. Most went to the greedy.

And so far, you have not been able to provide any evidence to the contrary.

Oh, that is science to you eh?[Wherever the universe came from] is science.
No, it is not.

You asked where the source for the earth and life on it - the solar nebula - came from, and I answered, "Wherever the universe came from."

That is not science. Most things aren't. This post isn't science. Neither is the Atlantic Ocean. Nor is taking a shower.

I didn't say that Parnia isn't doing science. What I said is that his work has not produced the results that you claim or imply it has.

Yes, I do. Don't you? Your thinking is faith based.

The first few chapters of Genesis is not an historical account of the universe. Its a visionary account of the universe. No one was there when the universe was created except YHWH and Spirits.
I'm not sure whether you are calling the Genesis creation story myth or fact, but either way, it is a false history of the universe taught as truth for millennia, now debunked by scientists, and as a result of that, often called metaphor these days.

I think there are some true atheists out there, but not in here. I can't see a true non-believer wasting their time discussing a god they claim doesn't exist.
Then you think that I'm not an atheist? Do you mind if I start calling myself a Christian based on your say so?

You came here as a "new" poster, in Dec.. "hahha'
kissing the ugly behinds of Lawlest and Qu..
You joined in on their hatred for me- sending bs posts to my opinons/posts-
in support of their bigotry and riducule of the homosexual community- you have supported their bigotry and hatred on the name of my God.
That's how this all began..
My dislike for you.
As far as your under garments.. I am sure as you keep
playing make-believe and pretending to be from "oz"
and a mother of young children....umm.......
''''nevermind..you must be far to busy for what I may be
thinking here..
You are a trouble maker and a serpent in what can be an otherwise peaceful internet discussion room, you come into this thread right at a time when it is generally serene and when people are posting in peace with one another, you like to stir the pot and Christ is nowhere about you because you don't convey the ways of peace with others and you attack and demean others for no other reason than the fact that they can get along well with people that YOU have issues with, you are full of the devil and you sow the seeds of discord.

Today's Prayer

Dear God, "To live is Christ, to die is gain" (Philippians 1:21). I want to live unto Christ. May the days of my life on this earth be pleasing to You. I pray that I will "die to self" and grow and become more like Christ as I journey toward that day when I will be with You in heaven. Please use me to bless others; to give love, encouragement, help, and guidance where needed; to meet material needs of the needy; and to point people to You. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for all that You have done for me, for all that You are doing in my life right now, and for all You will do in whatever days are to come. In Jesus' precious name I pray, amen
