Well for one, religion played a major role in the American Revolution by offering a moral sanction for opposition to the British.
And Christians played a huge role in the foundations of American freedom.
For one...
There's plenty of examples throughout history where religion played a pivotal role in progress.
Oh, bollocks.

Religion played a pivotal rĂ´le in just about every single major conflict in recent history.

Okay, perhaps not the War of Jenkin's Ear.

Provide links to posts! Put in the effort to back up your claim. All I've ever said about hell is that it's not in the original bible and that it's original, and current meaning have nothing to do with Christianity or catholicism.

You seem to be ok with baseless claims on your end, but have a problem when others do the same if it doesn't agree with you POV. Keep waiving the flag of hypocrisy.

Check my response to your earlier post, and deal with the fact that i done told you..
Instead of posting your stupid accusations! Wipe your feces out of your eyes.
I see you're unable to accept the fact that hell is never mentioned in the bible. Go back to your baseless claims about the afterlife, christard.

You have that exactly wrong.
The only way to see any of that as "prophesy" is by WANTING to see it as prophesy.
I responded earlier to this, but must have got lost in cyber space somewhere, anyway.

The only way to see it as ''not propesy'' is by NOT WANTING to see it as prophesy.
That's called confirmation bias.
Yup! <Crickets chirping>
See if you can look at it with the eyes of a skeptic.
I bet you can't. Yet I can see exactly how you're able to twist and mangle it to fit your need to believe.
I have looked at this life through the eyes of an Athiest most of my teen years Areo.

Serious question.

Your position implies that you have indeed searched out and deeply examined all proposed evidences of God and found them all lacking. With that said.

Do you ''truly know'' that God doesnt exist?

Or could it be that you have chosen what MAN kind has told you?

Yeah , the Chinese found out how to make American dollars by making stuff to sell us, since it says "in god we trust" on it ...

<quoted text>My son is now 23 years old.

He has known since childhood that I am not a believer. I was always open about my views, and he never showed much interest in the subject of religion.

We seldom discussed religion in the home.

Not once did I "teach [him] about no God and no religion."

Obviously, he must have taken my views into consideration in forming his own views. But I always made clear that he was free to believe whatever he decided to believe (just as I did with respect to his views on politics). And I honestly don't know what his thoughts about religion are today.
Same with my kids.

Although they do point out some of the more ludicrous goings on of the religious.

Not long ago, there were a bunch of nut jobs worshipping a knothole on a tree that "looked like the Virgin Mary".

And I took them to see The Most Fabulous Story Ever Told.

The protesters were as entertaining as the play. I went back the next day to video some.

Virtually all of them know it's a delusion.
We don't see many giving away all their worldly possessions. They surely would if they were 100% certain. So would you and I.
With modern medicine, almost all Xian men would be "able" to make themselves eunuchs for the sake of the Kingdom. A few still do. Most ignore.
Sadly, I think most of them do NOT know it's a delusion.

We have RR, for one- right here- repeatedly stating that he KNOWS there is a god and not only that, that the god he KNOWS exists is EVERYONE'S god!

Now that may speak of RR being delusional, but in his DELUSIONAL mind, what he claims to "know" is a fact and not at all a delusion.

Nope- they give away NOTHING and actually amass more and more.

Right you are- if I had proof of the existence of a god and the bible god that RR claims to KNOW exists, I sure would give every single thing I have away to those less fortunate than I am- lock, stock and barrel- assuming I adhered to the DICTATES of the bible, that is.

Well, while there aren't too many Christian eunuchs these days in the LITERAL sense, there sure are a LOT of them in a figurative sense given just how impotent they are in trying to get the entire world to not only believe there IS a god, but specifically "their" god of the bible.

And those like RR are indeed ball-less wonders!

Hello delusional ones -- regarding the "power of prayer"....

What would happen if we get down on our knees and pray to God in this way:

"Dear God, almighty, all-powerful, all-loving creator of the universe, we pray to you to cure every case of cancer on this planet tonight. We pray in faith, knowing you will bless us as you describe in Matthew 7:7, Matthew 17:20, Matthew 21:21, Mark 11:24, John 14:12-14, Matthew 18:19 and James 5:15-16. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen."

We pray sincerely, knowing that when God answers this completely heartfelt, unselfish, non-materialistic prayer, it will glorify God and help millions of people in remarkable ways.

Will anything happen?

Of course not. It's a delusion.

That is vague, contradictory, and meaningless.
He is inside and outside of space and time. That's part of being omnipresent.

I said we can detect Him, not see Him. Context is key, my man.

Of course we don't have evidence of a spiritual realm, we can't detect it. but that doesn't mean anytihng.
