Glad you mentioned Socrates! It is true that the bulk of proof about his existence comes from his students. But the great thing it doesn't matter!
YAY!

Then why does it matter about Jesus?

How many times have posters challenged me to prove God?
That's the title of another thread.

And I'm not saying you are the ONLY broken record; we have several here, and you're one of them.

No one had to challenge you, you just appeared and said you were the champion of of your belief. But these things mean nothing to me,
The real test of men is not in their beliefs, but how they function in our world. In short you can defend Mickey Mouse , and if you are a honorable sort of man, despite my belief I will honor yours too.

Um...yeah...its just terrible when people "blindly accept a whole host of beliefs"
Self awareness isn't really your strong suit, is it?
Yes, i have self awareness, difference is "for me" GOD "confirmed" my beliefs that i so blindly accepted to be true..

I no longer have that doubt thats embeded deep in my soul that God isnt real, unlike the Atheist..

As for the Atheist, they are not 100% sure that, that "God" you all mock and make fun of, even exist..

You can remain an Atheist if you wish, believe or not believe.

And people of reason will continue to do so just as you are free to believe in your imaginary Jewish wizard. Just keep him out of schools and government.

No, I just got down to the nitty gritty. You believe Socrates existed even though we have no evidence of the man.

But you say you answered? Where:

Wow you are wayyyy off here. Firstly people are not blowing themselves and others up because of say Julius Caesar existed and ruled or not.

Take a history class and you can see the wealth of historical proof on him. Which Alexander? There are dozens of Alexanders in history. Yes we have historical proof of coins existing ditto with statues.

Thanks for stepping to the front of the class and demonstrating to all your complete ignorance as to what constitutes being an Atheist. You may now take your seat!!!!
