It seems much more logical and sane than the year the others are trying to live in.

<quoted text> I disagree with you on one subtle level. An atheist would say that god doesn't exist in the same way you'd say bigfoot or garden pixies don't exist. Do you need faith to claim there are no supernatural gnomes tending your garden? No, you just need a logical thought process. Christians make a big mistake when they put belief and unbelief in unproven claims on the same level. If you disagree with that, I'd like to see you prove that bigfoot doesn't exist. Are you agnostic in regards to everything you can't disprove?
I think we actually are in agreement here as far as defining atheist. I said "And atheist says in the affirmative that there is no God and rejects anything spiritual" And considering there is no way to know whether God exists for a fact,I would have to assume they are rejecting the idea in part because they reject the idea of god and the supernatural or whoever someone may personally describe it for themselves.

I can't say I agree or understand why they place the idea of God in the fanciful category that they do though. A universe forming out of nothing and not just forming matter and life but forming planets and moons and starts and forming life from non-life that evolves from a speck to a human being on a planet close enough to a sun and with the right atmosphere to sustain human life and the other thousands upon thousands of male and female replicating species is one heck of a mathematical odds challenge to overcome. All life as we know it now was created. Many people believe there may be other intelligent life out there and even more intelligent life. Is the idea of a creator so preposterous as to warrant someone not even being agnostic?

The woman named folly is loud and brash. She is ignorant and doesn't even know it. She sits in her doorway on the heights overlooking the city. She calls out to men going by who are minding their own business. "Come home with me" she urges the simple. To those without good judgment she says, "Stolen water is refreshing, food eaten in secret tastes the best." But the men don't realize that her former guest are now in the grave.
FOLLY CALLS FOR A HEARING.
Sorry Whispers, but this is useless.

Threatening unbelievers with hell doesn't meet that criteria.
I do agree with this. I have never seen it have any effect and why would it if someone doesn't believe it is real? It may be a way to try to get someone thinking but to say it purely as a threat seems fairly pointless
Antichrist Superstar wrote:
<quoted text>IMO faith has nothing to do with it. I accept there are some things I cannot know for certain, but I'm happy to wait for new evidence to enlighten me and I'm determined to wait until I die if necessary. Those who wont wait are just as ignorant as I am about what will happen when we die, but they wont (or can't) admit it.
It was late so I may not have explained myself as well or as clear as I could have. But we are in agreement here. To an agnostic, faith doesn't even enter the equation. The are empirically-based and go by evidence. Agnostics may vary in which unknowns they may consider possible, but they would not subscribe to any as actuality without proof. At least that is how I have always believed "agnostic" to be defined

<quoted text> True, but I don't expect much more than that.
Probably better you already have your expectations set realistically. Because Topix seldom fails to live down to them for anyone
Antichrist Superstar wrote:
<quoted text>I agree, but you're not my target audience. So long as Christianity exists, fundamentalist Christianity will exist. There's a bigger game at play, and it's mostly political in nature.
Personally I think people are conned in politics by faith all the time. People who probably don't even care about faith or it is nowhere close to their main reason for acting will use faith to rally people behind them. Often turning non-faith issues into sudden rallying points. I think people pretend to be more faithful than they are for political points. And I think some people try to legislate their faith. I oppose those three things.

Although I do feel people have every right on an individual level, even in politics, to make decisions about what they feel is right or wrong based on their own morals. Naturally their faith is part of who they are and will play a role into what they feel is right or wrong. That part I have no problem with. But each person should make their own decisions based on their own reasons and not try to dishonestly use faith as political currency. It isn't always insincere, but I suspect a lot of times it is

Today's Prayer
Dear God, Today I want to ask Your special cover of protection and blessing upon the people who work in Children's Ministries around the world. Please continue to work through them to spiritually nurture the children under their care. Help them all to remain faithful to You, to their purpose, and to the welfare of these children. I pray also that you would weed out those who do not belong in this place of authority and ministry; those who do not have the gift or compassion and those whose motives are not pure and would cause harm. You have all the power to do what is necessary. Thank You, Lord. In Jesus' name, amen.

And here is the commonest form of Christian terrorism: shaking Scary Chicken at whoever won't submit to your priests with you. Misery loves company:

“It must be quite galling for religious people to see atheists like me going about their business without a shred of guilt or self-loathing, and not in the least inclined to pray or to do penance of any kind, and not in the slightest bit worried about any form of eternal punishment. I have to admit if I was religious I'd probably think to myself: "How come I've got all this weight on my shoulders while these bums are getting a free ride?" – Pat Condell

Hope all is well on your side. Question for you & I will have to check back in l8ter or 2morrah:
Does "potential" already exist or is it created?
Something I was thinking about while traveling out of the area the other day. I asked about 3-4 people separately and so far everyone agreed mostly in the same manner. I thought that was interesting and triggered other concepts for me to think about.
I would say both

Some parts of potential are based on genetics and IQ and health and other predetermined factors from birth

Then other parts are based on what situations have occurred to increase the potential someone has. Have they been taught right from wrong, educated, how were they socialized, etc? What happens in our formative years all the way to early adulthood goes a long way in shaping us and influencing the potential someone may have

But that also is not written in stone. Someone who may have had a crap start can always go to school, take business classes, travel and learn the world, etc. People may not be able to increase their natural intelligence but increasing their knowledge and life experience can increase their potential

So I would say a lot of potential depends on how someone is born and how they are raised. But it can always be improved on.
