How is it that you cant deduce that "responsible" may be used to be synonymous with "cause"?
Who is responsible for you lack of intelligence and critical thinking skills?

<quoted text>And it's attitudes and behaviors (thoughts, actions, reactions, and speech) like your's and karl44's that help this world spiral into such a negative state. So many people become offended when others don't respect their beliefs and opinions, but are quick to disrespect other's beliefs and opinions. Apparently, those with different beliefs and opinions are only accepted and respected if they're beliefs and opinions coincide with yours. Apparently, you're not much of a fan of "freedom of expression."
As to your comment regarding the universe always existing? Then, why did it take so long for this planet to become adequate for life?

After 540,000 + posts nothing has changed. The best answer is still nobody knows if God exists and nobody can prove nor disprove existence.

True enough but some things have been learned.

1. That there are those who claim beyond any doubt that a god exists.

2. That there are those who will use a book of faith - none proven to be the words or thought of any god which might exist- as proof of a god's existence. At best, this is circular logic while at the same time not being logical in any sense.

3. That there are those who will show incredible disregard, contempt and some people even hatred for any and all who don't believe as they do.

4. That there are those who will cherry-pick from and attempt to twist the words found in those books of faith- most notably, the bible.

5. That there are those who refuse to accept the fact that only that which IS can be proven to exist - that one can't prove there isn't a god any more than one can prove there isn't a Santa Claus, a tooth fairy, leprechauns or unicorns- pink or any other color.

6. That there are those who are totally clueless as to the difference between that which is belief/opinion and that which is fact/truth.

Are you suggesting that Jesus brought the Kingdom but the Church brought the institution?
Working under the assumption that jesus is a deity, yes. I have no problem with personal faith, or even religion for that matter - but it seems as if religion and political/social interference go hand in hand.

No. I did say "if you were born into a slave owner family...."
<quoted text>
That is subjective & relative.
<quoted text>
Although slaves probably hated it, is say they thought it was normal, yes.
<quoted text>
Moral for them, yes. They don't know any better.
Is is all relative & subjective.
It's not an issue of right & wrong.
So, there is no objective morality, at all? Something can never be truly wrong, it can be right in the appropriate context? Murder can be ok, if society sees it as "normal?"

What is responsible for the "selection"?
What phenomena, mechanism or process "Selects"?
Are you sure you are the expert I asked for?
You are getting confused by the word "select." It does not have to imply a "selector."

I suspect that a lot of people don't know themselves except if it has become some sort of an issue that they have to take a real serious look at. If there was some sort of a foolproof test of what people believe strong enough to put their lives on the line for, I think we would find a lot of people would be very hesitant to take a stand, either way.
Line up all people against a brick wall facing a row of machine guns pointed at them and tell them that all believers in God, who believe God will do what is best for them, to stand there while the rest can leave but all who stay will get at least 20 bullets in the centre of their body in the lungs and heart area, and I suspect the vast majority would walk away.
Ask the same question of those who don't believe, and tell them that if they feel strongly enough about God existing to stand up for what they believe by taking the bullets, most of them would walk away too.
However, ask them who are 100% sure that they will or won't go to hell after death, and you will find that many people take a different stand than if they are threatened with immediately getting shot.
I personally believe strongly enough that there is no God and no Hell to "risk" my eternal future on (because I don't believe there is a risk), but I would pledge total allegiance to God to stop being shot in the present. I doubt many "Born Agains" would stay for the bullet, if they were asked to pray to God to be saved, and stay.
Exactly! Setting on my couch, in the warm confines of my own home, with no immediate threat of death...I'll say I would take the bullets if given the choice to live or die for my belief in God. stick me against a brick wall with a machine gun pointed at my head...I honestly don't know how I'd react. I know what I'd hope I would do...but I've never been in a such a situation and it'd be a lie if I said I was certain I know how I'd react. I wonder Boooots...how do you comfort people who are dying? I ask because a dear friend of mine just passed away after battling Leukemia for the past four years. she had an eleven year old daughter who is holding on to the idea of seeing her mom in heaven again someday. it's all she has. I believe she will...you do not. How do you explain to that kid that her mom is just dead and there is no more hope? I don't ask that with ill intent. I seriously want to know how atheist deal with loss and comforting others during those times.

No, I really don't. I really believe that people could learn much from them though...if they would only listen.

Oh, I forgot. Yahoo has discussion sites like this, but many are invite/member only.
