the real blessing is in believing without the need for proof. what kind of faith is it if proof was the only basis for believing ?
Faith the is substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
Have you ever seen the space shuttle in the sky? but you believe it's there, right? you don't need proof.
Only an idiot would have "faith" that all that insane crap in the book of lies is real.

So I did, and now I'm an atheist.
The irony is almost palpable.
One minor flaw in your statement.

You claim to be an atheist.

Atheists do not believe in God.

But you stated "God" gave you a brain.

Oh the humiliation of such a blunder!!!

People should be ruled by logic not emotions.. My "God given" brain tells me to challenge accepted beliefs and to look for solid proof.

Now the only question is this:

Are you knowingly and willingly LYING, even though you know that Jesus is a false god, or are you still deluding yourself and actually bowing down to a man made false god?

Oh, and I have seen the sunlight reflected off of the shuttle when it flew overhead at the right time of the evening, back when we were still launching them. If I had had the proper telescope, I could have actuallly seen the shutle itself. Too bad you don't understand the difference between objective and subjective...

Ah, but I am without sin, so I don't need to worship your little false god.

And my relationship with the TRUE Divine is just fine.

Matthew 21:22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Hey, I'm not even asking for money. All I want is for that tiny little piece of rock to move from whatever box it is currently hiding in to my dinner table. Although, as I think about it, if I had $50 million just magically appear on my dinner table instead of that rock, then I could start preaching the word in style!

Yeah, I heard. Very depressing, especially if you start to think about how long it has been since he walked on the Moon and what we have done since then. Damn it, we should have had men on Mars by this time, and people living on the Moon!

Oh, I dunno! I think I can understand the delay. Consider the job description ....

The first line says; "Strap yourself to the top of a rocket ..."

That eliminates a lot of people including myself right away.

No, massive FAIL on your part.

You stated:

"I used to believe everything I was told, including believing in God; but then people told me to stop believing everything I'm told and to use the brain that God gave me to think for myself.
>>>So I did<<<, and now I'm an atheist."

Not the highlighted ">>>So I did<<< (use the brain that God gave me to think for myself).

So it happens, you flubbed it.

I had The Dream, bad, even back then.
