It's absolutely not. I see no reason to differentiate between the vague predictions of your bible, and say, the vague predictions of ms. cleo. Or the prophecies of the upinishads, or the koran, etc. You wouldn't see a difference either, if you weren't christian. Give me other evidence aside from a staggeringly low prophetic success rate and I will consider your position.

That is the point ain't it? Afraid to follow the evidence, no matter where it leads.
*Shudder* You're right, of course. I am terrified,*terrified*, of the notion that I might get to spend eternity in paradise with all of my friends and family.

Seriously, guys, your religion isn't as off putting as you make it out to be. It doesn't require any deep spiritual transformation or lifestyle change. It's just - "believe, and we're cool. You'll get to see heaven when you die."

Are you not okay with contradictions in your world view?
Or do you agree with the laws of logic, such as the law of non-contradiction?
The law of non-contradiction only applies AFTER the law of identity has been satisfied.

For that to occur, you must first define your terms.

Go ahead.

<quoted text>Eyewitness testimony is notoriously unreliable. The fact that courts accept it does not make it any better. And eyewitness testimony becomes even more suspect when it is part of a narrative that depends on said testimony.
I don't have "evidence of other beings." You're being obtuse. Share this evidence, or admit that you don't have it. And wtf are you talking about roswell for? What in the world does that have to do with anything?
And the credibility of eyewitness is coming under more and more scrutiny.

Much depends on the validity of the eyewitness testimony, the credibility of the eyewitness and how much time passes between what was witnessed and when that testimony is given.

"A Check on Bad Eyewitness Identifications
Published: December 5, 2012

The Oregon Supreme Court in a unanimous decision last week upended how eyewitness identification is to be used in criminal trials. The landmark ruling shifts the burden of proof to prosecutors to show that such identification is sufficiently reliable to be admissible as evidence at trial.

****Misidentification is the country’s leading cause of wrongful convictions.***** By altering the legal standard, Oregon has set an example that other states and the federal courts would be wise to follow."

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/12/06/opinion/a-c...

"The Innocence Project is a nonprofit team of attorneys and law students that re-examines questionable murder convictions with the hope of using DNA evidence to overturn the sentences of defendents who've been wrongfully imprisoned.

****In the first 130 cases the Innocence Project overturned, eyewitness testimony played a part in 78 percent of those wrongful convictions [source: Stambor].*****

http://www.howstuffworks.com/eyewitnesses-unr...

"However, the New Jersey court has become the latest institution to question this kind of evidence, noting a "troubling lack of reliability" in eyewitness identifications. The unanimous judgment by the state court says that the tests for eyewitness reliability, set out by the US supreme court 34 years ago, should be revised."

I'd say it's pretty much a fact until it gets disproven.
Good luck with that.
Of course you dismiss our individual experiences with God....

Yes, God is a fact unless you can disprove Him.

Thanks.

atheists reject "belief" therefore Atheists do not "believe" in no god(s)
You are an intentional idiot, but at least you do not need try hard.
There it is again...

It's more that "atheists don't believe in a god".

It's "atheists don't believe in *the existence* of a god".

It's your belief.

It's strange that you don't know what it means.

Your ":p" not withstanding, perhaps Alice lives in England or another country where the word is spelled "behaviour"....eithe r way, it is an acceptable spelling of the word.

Added to that is you having stated that "undereducated" is two words when the fact is that it is one word and add to that your refusal to admit you were wrong when you told karl you are educated enough to know that "undereducated" is two words.

So it's really "rich" that here you are telling someone else how to spell and all the more when it is acceptable for "behavior" to be spelled "behaviour".

I think that in a way there is a god. god is just a intangible thought that is created for you to have something to believe in and something that you can look up to (as in being a good person and to not do bad things) i think in life, there is no wrong in believing in god (im not saying he/she/it exists),i believe in being a good person, to not put down others, not to steal things or hurt or kill people. this doesn't mean i believe in god. i'm not religious but yeah i think in life we just need something as simple as "being a good person" to believe in. none of this heaven/hell mumbo jumbo.
