How do you know? You just picked the closest deity that is culturally familiar to you. Considering there are thousands upon thousands of others, the likelihood that you are guessing correctly is vanishingly small. Not to mention the odds that, even within Christianity, you also chose the right sect (of which there are around 41,000).

Merely pointing out that, again, education and income are not necessarily correlated to either a person's morals or how praiseworthy they are.

Her addiction was out of sight. Shed be living in different towns with different guys. At the time I lived up north and out of the blue she called me. Thing is the day before her brother told me she might and to not give her any money, I never heard from her again. She pawed her sons crib at one point.
Boy, she sounds like a winner.

How is skepticism faith?
Because you cant objectively verify that there is no God notwithstanding he is arcane. You cant objectively verify where life came from.

You don't think a deity that demands the torture and killing of an innocent person is rather creepy? Not to mention the whole idea of substitutional sacrifice: don't you think people should be responsible for their own actions?

I have anecdotal evidence . Its insufficient to skeptics . It.s satisfactory to me . America the USA is a special place. Israel is still around. Imagine that. Such a small hated country, yet we are there for them.

You could have used Bill Maher to make that point. A political figure who'll stoop to any level for a buck..........

But instead you chose to compare Coulter to Hitler.

And I didnt think you had a sense of humor..........

Within history,'the Satan!" is a mythic figure from a book of historical fiction or what is commonly referred to as myth.

You just believe it is literal.

No, it's not like that at all.

That girl he was talking about chose a life of drugs and sex and partying instead of a life of work and responsibility.

Big difference.

LOL you too...

Your wife and kids was your doings not a Gods...... you can realize that w/o taking anything away from the christian God.

If you give him credit for those things you have to give him credit for the child thats chained in his bedroom, not allowed to go to the bathroom, and starved and beaten. Its happening right now in probably thousands of homes across the nation and certainly the world. those kids are desperatly seeking a way out. Wheres god? Helping someone find a wife and kids?
