Facts are facts. Romanists may attack the author and myself, but you can't deny the facts.
John Carroll and the first American Catholics would never have denied the validity of their neighbor's Church.
"... In the first century and a half, Benjamin Franklin recommended John Carroll for a Church office and Protestants worked to create a colony where Catholics were welcome. Protestants were willing to do this just about a century after the bitter excommunication of Martin Luther in 1520. In America, Protestants gave land for Catholics to build Churches and, later, sent their children to Catholic schools.
We need to inquire why these promising beginnings did not continue.

Besides, why should you care? You don't believe in God. Aren't you the one who thinks he came from another planet?...lol

Michelle Bachelet

Chilean politician, former President of Chile and the first woman to hold this position in the country's history.

"A paediatrician turned politician, Ms Bachelet is an atheist single mother with three children by two different partners - which makes her an odd choice in a macho and profoundly Catholic country."[46]
"Given this context, it is nothing short of extraordinary - even revolutionary - that the clear front-runner in the presidential vote being held on Sunday is Michelle Bachelet, a divorced mother of three who is an atheist and a member of the Socialist Party."

The more I read the Bible and I tried to use the Bible to convert other people to Christianity, I realised, well I have to learn the arguments of the other religions I'm trying to convert. And the more I tried to learn the arguments and compare them to mine, the more I realised, I could make the arguments for their side just as well. Then it went into, you know, how do I know that anything I believe is true? And eventually I realised I have no evidence for any religion being true, and at that point, I was an atheist."
Hector Avalos
You will never prove a religion through the Bible June.
Hector Avalos is right, "I realized I have no evidence for any religion being true," and he never will, because the Bible isn't about a religion the Bible is about Jesus Christ, and God's plan of salvation for all man kind.
You are hung up about religion, so your argument really isn't against God but religions.

Not any that would cause me to come on here and tell you you're going to hell unless you believe as I do, or that you must believe as I do for any other reason either. The Catholics have been the only ones who've been decent to you around here. The others get in your face and scream at you in a shrill voice. Maybe that's what you like?

American atheist activist, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation and author of Losing Faith In Faith: From Preacher To Atheist.

"Following five years of reading, Dan gradually outgrew his religious beliefs. "If I had limited myself to Christian authors, I'd still be a Christian today," Dan says. "I just lost faith in faith." He announced his atheism publicly in January, 1984."[

As Scripture teaches:
But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.
Then, after speaking in many and varied ways through the prophets, "now at last in these days God has spoken to us in His Son":(Heb. 1:1-2).
For He sent His Son, the eternal Word, who enlightens all men, so that He might dwell among men and tell them of the innermost being of God (see John 1:1-18).
Jesus Christ, therefore, the Word made flesh, was sent as "a man to men." He "speaks the words of God" (John 3;34), and completes the work of salvation which His Father gave Him to do (see John 5:36; John 17:4)
"I and the Father are one"

"One Lord, one faith, one baptism"

One God in three persons. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. The Blessed Trinity.

Just an anology June, doesn't necessarily have to be religious. If you love someone, you'll warn them of danger, no?

I have to give a qualified agree to your first sentence. The Bible is a product of the Catholic Church, not the other way around.

How is it that nobody has genuinely ever found where Hell is?

Dante said it was in the bowels of the earth.

Yet no scientific discovery has ever been made.

It is a FIGMENT OF THE IMAGINATION.

The Bible does not say Hell exists yet.

Hell in the Bible
The word “hell” is used 54 times in the Bible.

It is translated from several different words with various meanings, as indicated below:

In the Old Testament:

31 times from the Hebrew “Sheol,” which means “the grave”

In the New Testament:
10 times from the Greek “Hades,” which means “the grave”
12 times from the Greek “Gehenna,” which means “a place of burning”
1 time from the Greek “Tartarus,” which means “a place of darkness”

Why do you believe differently?

The influence of the RCC for sure.

Instill fear so the innocent will pay to have their loved ones forgiven for $$$$$$$$$$ to Build St. Pauls.

No one's ever "genuinely" found where Heaven is either. Did Little Ellen White say it doesn't exist?

A place of burning and darkness sure sounds like hell to me.

Sorry, but the Catholic Church does not teach that anyone can be bought out of hell. Perhaps if you found out what THE Church really teaches before posting on a public forum, you wouldn't wind up looking like a.....well, you know the drill.

But do tell us why you believe Jesus and Michael, the Archangel are one and the same.
