I've asked him if he's been home-schooled or has attended Christian brainwashing institutions throughout his childhood. He was clearly abused as a child and there's little hope for him. He's totally oblivious to his ignorance unless he's a poe having a laugh.

Can you prove the Bible is the word of the 'Christian God'?
I can give you the 'opposing view'.
there are some aspects of the Christian belief system which rely on faith. God says that the Bible is His Holy Word, and while you cannot directly prove the 'Christian' God exists, you cannot deny his existence. I acknowledge that there are some questions which do not have direct answers involving this subject. The Bible itself says that faith is required. What is the said opposing view? I am interested in seeing the other side of things here.

The Indus valley civilization has a well-known history dating back to perhaps 3100 BCE. By 2500 BCE there were two major cities, Mohendaro (or Mohenjo-Daro) and Harrapa, which rivaled Egypt and Mesopotamia in population and technologies. This great Civilization also encompassed maybe 100 smaller cities, towns, and villages, and didn’t fall until about 1500 BCE. They have no record of a worldwide civilization-destroying flood.

The Minoan civilization was probably as old as Egypt. Based on the Island of Crete, this civilization grew quickly and was highly advanced by 2500 BCE. By the middle of the second millennium it had an alphabet, used bronze tools, had pottery, textiles, advanced architecture, and had established cities around the Islands. It continued to grow and was a center for trade and culture until about the mid-1400&#8242;s BCE  when it was suddenly destroyed by the violent eruption of the Thera volcano. There has been no evidence unearthed from this civilization that shows a flood destroying their whole infrastructure, at any time in their existence.

We do not have any archaeological or geological evidence from the Japanese culture, Native American culture, or the Black tribes of Africa that indicate a world wide flood at any time in their existence. Think about this. How could all these civilizations, tribes, and world-wide culture along with sooo many people suddenly disappear from the earth and then suddenly reappear all over the world and bring the same culture, arts, pottery design, architecture, writing, language, and artifacts that was unique to them and their part of the world?

The entire history of the world does not show…any…of the known civilizations to have a large gap in their chronology or technologies as a result of being destroyed by a worldwide flood. It is not plausible that they were destroyed, and within a few short years, reappeared in their original numbers and with the same abilities and infrastructure. All the inventions and culture of the people of the time…would have had to be reinvented by new inhabitants…that did not happen.

It just didn't happen people.

You are completely BONKERS to have FAITH in the DEMISE of MANKIND!

YOU WANT ARMEGEDDON! YOU WANT IT! YOU LOVE IT! You'd LOVE to see the earth blown to smithereens, don't you, you sick head cases?
This GHOULISH, MACABRE "faith" is becoming a noose around the neck of collective humanity and it is with that noose that we will make ourselves extinct!
You and your ilk are facilitating the MASS MURDER-SUICIDE of all mankind, and you are monsters that need to be stopped!
Please elaborate your argument because it is rather obvious that you are upset at us but I really do not see why. And no, truthfully, we creationists do not wish to see the world be destroyed and we really do not wish to kill each other. Evolution teaches that we exist by chance, and nothing more. There is no purpose. There is no right and wrong. There is nothing after death. We Christians wish to bring hope. God loves everybody and has a plan for each and every one of us. I do not see what area of our motives you misunderstand, but I hope you can elaborate because shouting these things in caps lock.....is uncalled for. We do not wish for the mass murder-suicide for all mankind and we really are not monsters. Please explain your mindset....

humanity did not just disappear then reappear. It was completely wiped out. The Bible says that nothing was saved from before the flood. No trace of humanity remained. Every artifact we see today is post flood. Also, here

You could say the same about love, money or sex. We humans learn through association and usually gravitate because of those rewards.
I wouldn't call it "rewiring" but "new associations"
Of course you can, which is why gambling and sex addicts exist. And what's the difference between "rewiring" and "new associations?" The "associations" that occur as a result of chronic substance abuse (or chronic anything for that matter) represent very real changes in the brain in terms of structure and chemistry.

So you cannot prove your Christian God exists?

If you cannot prove your hypothesis then we atheists and non-believers can easily deny His existence....don't you think?

In general we atheists and non-believers think that there is no God, probably no Jesus, the Bible is purely made up by humans, that all religions are scams, all of the Pentateuch is made up by Hebrew scholars around 900 to 500 BC, We know also that the Gospels were not written by the named authors, in fact most of the Bible has different authors than those listed.

There is tremendous proofs that there was never an Adam and Eve as portrayed in the Bible, there was never a Exodus of the Hebrew people out of Egypt there was never a Noachian flood, there was never a 'Tower of Babel', etc.

So as a consequence we don't believe in magic or the supernatural. I'm sure there's more, but its late here and I'm tired

No it doesn't. You "have" no answer. You say it is a "stupid question" [because] you can not answer it, and can NOT stand to be found inept or wrong.
I don't want to hear a pile of rhetoric. I am not going to be led into superfluous strawman and red herring argument any further. Your tactics are dishonest. You are wasting everyones' time in an attempt to deflect.
Just answer the question, or at least admit you can not.
I did answer your question - the addictive property of weed is that it's pleasurable. Any pleasurable activity can cause the brain's reward pathway to physically change and therefore reinforce said activity.

I also explained to why your question is nonsensical as phrased; addiction is not primarily determined by whether or not a drug can act on the opioid receptors, and chemical dependency (physical withdrawal) is not addiction per se, but is rather more of a symptom of addiction as well as a potential cause of addiction.
