I'm a random thought generator.
Do you not respect my opinions and conclusions?
Never mind, I haven't come to a conclusion but I do have opinions.
That's not really true but I'm a liar. That's not true.

<quoted text>That is correct. He have no weapons against faith. All we have is evidence and reason.

[1] "Water is two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. What if someone says,“Well, that’s not how I choose to think about water. All we can do is appeal to scientific values. And if he doesn’t share those values, the conversation is over." - Sam Harris

[2]“You do not reason a man out of something he was not reasoned into.”- Jonathan Swift

[3]“Reason and faith are opposites, two mutually exclusive terms: there is no reconciliation or common ground. Faith is belief without, or in spite of, reason.”- George H. Smith

[4] "If someone doesn’t value evidence, what evidence are you going to provide to prove they should value it? If someone doesn’t value logic, what logical argument could you provide to show the importance of logic?" - Sam Harris
I like that last one a lot.

<quoted text>I'd blame him for that if I believed he existed. What good would free will do me in such a world, where it might land me in hell? I would rather be given the same will that he was given.

Our free will would be for that god's benefit, not ours. He's the one who has the taste for souls that could have rejected him.
It's like telling a slave that they have free will, but they'll be hunted down night and day if they don't do exactly as they're told every minute of every day.

I've already asked him. He gave me the hypocritical "that rule is outdated but not the small part of the bible that might be talking about homosexuals."

His "gay friends" are probably just effeminate males who are straight.

If a historical Jesus was ever crucified, he died for his own crimes.

I'm not aware of another person in history who was convicted in unrelated courts of unrelated crimes under unrelated legal codes, and sentenced to death by both. The Sanhedrin convicted him of blasphemy, and the Romans of sedition. Not even Dahmer or Bundy can touch that,

There's more: You might say that Jesus was informally sentenced to death a third time, when the crowd was given a choice between seeing him or Barabbas executed, and they chose Jesus for death.

Nobody liked that guy.

I have anger issues. I do.

I sometimes lash out to nobody's benefit.

I try and I try to control my anger.

When I succeed, it comes out in humor.

Nuff said bout dat.

It was your initiated by your initial comment that "unbelief is a choice", and then your subsequent comment "Choose not to believe Germany exist...just for 10 minutes."
Okay, whether you understand this or not, when you made the comment about Germany, you were asserting that for a person to choose to not believe Germany exists, was somehow similar or akin to a person not choosing to have a theist belief that your deity exists.
That isn't the same.
Then you made the comment: "I know. It's hysterical when their own logic is used against them."
I pointed out where your logic was faulty and that comment, "I know. It's hysterical when their own logic is used against them.", is what urged me to respond.
Understand?
Good luck with that.

I'll bet that this conversation has felt a little like rolling a boulder uphill. It's like trying to explain gravity to a chicken.
