Like the evidence you haven't seen about God.
Evidence of my professional work does exist, although you, RR, aren't privy to it because you don't know who I am or what I do and have done.

But tell me, where can I find evidence of a god? Is the evidence available to me?

I do.
I claim nothing more than a well educated opinion.
A far cry form you and your fellow 'believers' pronouncements of "God Says!" and "I Know".
Well educated is your claim.

Well opinionated seems more like it.

After all, YOU have said "you know" I don't follow Jesus....

Evidence of my experiences with God do exist, Catch. You aren't privy to it because you are not me and experiences cannot be directly shared.

You can find evidence of God if you spend some time, honest time, getting to know Him. Pray to Him, just talk. Explain your say, thank Him for something good that happened, ask Him why something bad happened, etc.

You can do it, if you want to.

But as long as you ignore God, He'll ignore you.

And you'll think there's no evidence.

You don't understan the meaning of the word "evidence".

I wish you ALL would confess that you ALL "twist" the scriptures to make it say what you want them to.... and anyone who disagrees you call fools, lost, idiots, sinners, liars, demons, etc.
That is why you have 40 THOUSAND divisions of Christianity that all call each other wrong.
Nope, it isn't so :)

I find it to be a bit presumptuous that you seem (IMO) to be saying that he is consciously denying something that he knows to be so. Where does this leave room for God and his plan? If Catcher1 honestly has not received any evidence as it pertains to him, is he in fact ignoring God, or has he simply not been given the gift of faith yet? Just as I have to question why someone would try to get another to deny an experience that has led to faith, I have to question why some feel that everyone should have had them….

I believe that he has had experiences with God and he just doesn't know it.

I also believe that's why he's here...

True, that's my point.
That anyone who believes that the people that caused the Crusades or Inquisition were instructed to do so by God are only speculating.
They felt the were following the words of your deity. They did it because that's just exactly what the deity wanted them to do, according to "the spirit". History supports that view.

That point you'd be speculating about would be whether >you< think they interpreted scripture correctly, and that either the action was deity inspired or not.

Regardless of >you< want to claim, a bunch of Christians slaughtered thousands upon millions of people over time, and they did it because they thought a deity wanted them to, or, a deity had nothing to do with it, or anything in history.

Guess what I think?

Follow the evidence.

That's just speculation. You might as well be claiming that covering yourself in blue mud is the way to access your deity.

Yes, but they have to be observable, objective signs and indications.

A "personal relationship" with a deity you believe exists, is not evidence of anything other than your state of mind.

Believe me, RR, i know a LOT about evidence.

I work, live and breathe in a world of evidence.

There is plenty of [evidence] the Holocaust happened in Germany.

Yet there are millions of people especially in the Arab World that even with the evidence, they don't believe the holocaust happened.

God used his creation humans to write down the evidence of His existence in the bible; and fact that this universe people plants and animals exist is enough evidence that God exist.

But just as it with those even with the evidence deny the holocaust happened, >>you<< simply deny the evidence of God.

You made a Choice, to do that. Just like the Holocaust denier made a choice to deny the holocaust, you simply made a choice to deny the existence of God.

And just like the holocaust denier have their reasons to deny the holocaust happened even though the evidence exist, you simply have your own reasons to deny God exist.

And just like no evidence will convince the holocaust denier that the holocaust happened, no evidence will convince you that God exist.

Well--after you die you will have physical evidence of God. By then your fate is Sealed.

That’s your choice, and perhaps you are right…I still don’t understand the concept of - if one does not believe they are simply making a conscious effort not to.
