That's why I tend to stay away from churches. People can screw just about anything up. I've been to dozens of churches & not one seemed to have honest leaders. I keep my faith with God & not a modern church.
The real question is why do you keep your faith at all, DEATH DENIER. LOL

I dabbled with Next Generation.....OK but didn't really resonate like TOS....maybe it was just that I was more mature. Sometimes I despise maturity;0)

You might dig the crossover episodes.

Try 'Relics', ep. 130. It's a cool episode with Scotty
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relics_ (Star_Trek:_The_Next_Generatio n)

Or 'Unification", parts 1&2. It's with Spock (really cool mind meld with Spock & Picard).

It also says that only 10% of the population attend regular services (ie. at least once a month) so it sounds pretty dicey.
Here's another source:
According to the most recent Eurobarometer Poll 2005,[4]
32% of Norwegian citizens responded that "they believe there is a God".
47% answered that "they believe there is some sort of spirit or life force".
17% answered that "they do not believe there is any sort of spirit, God, or life force".
4% answered that they "do not know".
Phil Zuckerman, an Associate Professor of Sociology at Pitzer College estimates atheism rates in Norway as ranging from 31% to 72%, based on various studies.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
WTF? That's the same link I used that you shut down because it has issues.

Now you use it?

So you admit at least that God has "touched you." He literally reacher out and touched you. It was physical contact, thats what being touched literally means.
Very good.

Yes, God literally touched me.
Any person with any intelligence at all would have to admit that anyone who claims to have been physically touched by an invisible beings is delusional.
No, just you. You can not logically say that "any person" would agree with you. There are many religious people that are highly intelligent.
It would be absolutely no different from a person saying they were abducted by Aliens, taken to their home world in a flying saucer, and then returned with a message for all mankind.
But I've never claimed to be special and I certainly have not claimed to "have a message for all mankind".

Because I believe that God is very real. I've felt His hand & I've heard His voice. There's no doubt for me any more whether or not God exists.

Humans corrupt everything, even churches. That's why I stay away from them.

You know the lst church I went to, the pastor was "preaching" that if you don't tithe, God gets angry at you...... I walked out & was done with church.

What ever it is, "dark matter" can be detected by it's gravitational effects on visible matter and its radiation. Your sky fairy idea has nothing going for it unfortunatley.

Seriously, do you have Alzheimer's?
I have never, ever claimed that I have had or that I'm having conversations with God. I don't know where you get that delusion, but it's not from me.
Also I never said that you know nothing about Pluto, you said you know everything there is to know about Pluto and I responded with "how could you know everything about Pluto when we don't even know everything about earth?".
If you're having trouble keeping up with the conversation just let me know.
No I don't have Alzheimer's, and you seem to have a terrible time remembering what you posted. Again the mental facilities are full of people who claimed to have been touched by imaginary beings and have spoken to entities from beyond. What makes you different from them"

Exactly. Thinking there is an invisible man living in your basement secretly watching you is considered mental illness but if you think the very same thing but just change the location of the invisible man from the basement to the sky and you are supposedly sane? Faith is nothing more than politically correct mental illness.

HA HA HA!

Dark matter can not be detected. But you believe it to be real.

At what point did you convert "heard His voice" to "having conversations"?

There you go again. More lies.

Christians don't believe God is a man.

Christians don't believe He lives in the sky.

Atheists make that up so they can feel like they are denigrating God.

You're not, you're just making yourself look like an ass.

Sam Harris has a great comparison. "If you saw me saying some words over my pancakes in the morning thinking it was gong to change them into the body of Elvis, you'd say I was completely crazy, but say a few words over a cracker thinking it will change into the body of Christ, and you just a Catholic."

Very true. The ritualized cannibalism part always cracked me up. Christians practicing ritualized cannibalism are no more civilized than savages in some African tribe wearing face paint dancing around the fire.

Ugh... I'm not the one that is ignorant. You are.

"In astronomy and cosmology, dark matter is a type of matter hypothesized to account for a large part of the total mass in the universe."

We are much more certain what dark matter is not than we are what it is.

You're an child.

"in His image" is not limited to physical appearance.

But I doubt your simple mind could comprehend that.
