Actually you have anecdotal evidence concerning your religious experience.

The experience was only observable to you, and you arrived at a conclusion based on that, but no one else can verify what it was you experienced.

*a priori* conclusions are subservient to the conclusion; data is subservient to the conclusion. The conclusion is made, then the data or facts are observed. The facts or data are rejected or accepted based on the conclusion.

The belief that water is pure because it is bubbling out of a spring and surrounded by lush vegetation would be an *a priori* conclusion and not based on empirical evidence.

You drink the water because you decided it was pure. No verifiable and testable facts or data were needed to decide to drink the water.

I do that all the time. If I run across a "good spring", based on anecdotal evidence, I drink from it. But, I don't know for certain the water is pure.

*a posteriori* conclusions are subservient to the data; data is not subservient to conclusions. The conclusion is reached after the data or facts have been observed and evaluated. Only data or fact that can be verified are utilized in the conclusion.

Others can verify that too, using the same tests I utilized.

So, in using that method, you only drink the water from the spring after the facts have been evauluted and the water is found to be pure.

"Pure", is only determined after it's been verified(tested, boiled and a certain temperature is reached etc...). That would be *empirical evidence*.

Empirical evidence is generally accepted equally by the both theist and nontheist alike, unless religion is being discussed.

The majority of religious evidence is anecdotal, not empirical.

Your experience may be or seem empirical to you, but to all others, they must take your word for it.

One would think that a person such as you suffering from schizophrenia would know about schizophrenia, but all you did was copy and paste.

Interesting how you edited out the "and delusion" part. What's wrong jethro, didn't want to self incriminate yourself? LOL....
<quoted text>
You apparently do not know the meaning of the word 'fantasy'...
It has been proven that jesus is just a copied myth.
It has also been proven that hell does not exist.
Key word - PROVEN.
To ignore those facts makes you delusional. That pretty much sums it all up.
And just how do you know this person is schizophrenic? You a doctor?

Not necessarily. The officer in the center seat is in command.

It would be #1's duty to keep the captain from endangering the ship.

A crew is accustomed to its captain's orders making sense.

Yours don't. The crew became really concerned when you ordered mandatory prayer in the children's classrooms.

You're relieved of duty pending a full psychological evaluation.

Report to sickbay or I'll have security escort you there.

Make it so.

Why? Have I ever called you stupid?
Make fun of my religion.
There's nothing funny about it. Just the opposite. It's quite sad.
Even call Jesus names.
Such as? It's you and yours that call him names (Christ, Messiah, Savior, etc.).
But DO NOT f_ck my my Trek!
Just like it's *your* religion and it's *your* Jesus... it's *your* Trek.

They're *your* fantasies.
As the Klingon proverb says: Heghlu'meH QaQ jajvam.
No it isn't.

I don't know exactly, man.
I just trust in God.
Begging the question >>> What god?
Believe me, I used to be a skeptic. I used to doubt God's existence. I argued many times with my dad about it (he has a masters degree in theology, grandpa had a doctorate).
Sorry to hear that. It's never too late though. Don't give up. We're here to help.
When I trusted my faith more than my instinct, it worked!
It sure did! It messed you up good!
That may sound silly - but it worked for me.
It *is* silly.
I have no doubt in my mind or my heart that God is very much real & He's got my back.
It's *your* god and no one else's... so, of course it's going to have *your* back. It's an ad hoc concept, existing in your mind and your mind alone, partly for just that purpose. That way, when you feel the need express disdain and contempt for others, you get to shift responsibility to the god. You have no authority of your own so you created a higher authority. Your god is a proxy so you don't have to be the bad guy >>> “Don't get angry with me for telling you what Gawd says!”

That's the way I see it.

Give me a reason to not see it that way.

Maybe I am but I doubt that would help you with your attitude. Schizophrenic people have characteristics. Since they share these characteristics it begs the question.

Having a piss and taking a piss are totally different to Americans. Sometimes we are having to take a piss, but it doesn't mean on somebody.:)
