I hope you do not make your living as a academic, teaching students.
If you are as ill prepared in mathematics or whatever your discipline is, as you are in the understanding and use of logic and the use of english to get your point across, you are ill prepared for your position.
Are you insulting your self?
I am a teacher and love doing the job. Mathematics, Economics, Geography, Management sciences and Computer studies are some of my favourites. Boy, what do you do for a living?

All Of The Intellectual Bloviators Continue To Set Up Believers Of God, With A Straw Man. God Cannot Be Defined Or Explain Through Scientific Methods, Yet That What The Bloviators Insist You Do For Them.

Scientific Method Is Not The End All Authority On Anything, And Lacks The Capability To Understand Many Things.

In Reality, It Is Jealousy, That Empowers Them, They Cannot Come To Grips With The Fact That They Were Not Sent A Personal Invitation To The Event, And Will Demean And Insult Those Who Seem To Have Been.

Evolution is real and no, evolution has nothing to do with reincarnation which is very probably false. There is as much evidence for the existence of reincarnation as there is for Jesus being "the savior", practically none.

Prove it. This is a very simple task. No one on your side has managed to come even close to debunking Talk Origins in any way.

Then you still have it backwards. The evolution of man led to the myth of creation.

Who said "let there be light"??? Oh and who created the being that said let there be light? Oh and etc etc etc..
Our Creator is a Spirit and in the beginning he moved upon the face of the deep and water was first created, then his voice said Let there be light and there was light. This is The beginning of all things and how it happened, we do not read of any other creator or any other beginning. We read that God is like a father and he so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son to give us everlasting life and this is the purpose for our being here now, to choose this day who we will serve and where we will spend eternity. There is a place that is prepared for the spirit of sin which is the devil and his angels and it is a bottomless pit where the fire is never quenched. God is not willing that anyone should perish and go to that awfull place and depart from him; and every person will be judged from what is in their heart and if they have rejected the truth that is in the word of God and chose the lie of the devil. Believe in Jesus and you shall be saved.

Silly.

We can read of hundreds, if not thousands, of other Creators and other beginnings.

See, this is where the hypocrisy begins.

1. How do you explain "God"? Certainly not with empirical evidence. Certainly not through a common shared private experience experience among believers.

2. Assuming that there IS some private event, why shouldn't people be indignant? For no conceivable reason, your "God" is rejecting those who engage in rational behavior in favor of those who trust in "voices in their head" delusions. Many people consider that a sign of mental instability or pathological lying.

Now I'll be the first to place a very real value in the dreams. But you have to be hard wired to play them back in context. Once again, this is a personal theory so I can't provide evidence any more than you can. Nomadic peoples from pre-urban times are far better suited to digest complex problems in their sleep. Urban, socially evolved people are far more interested in instant gratification and really have no awareness as to what is internal and what is a path laid out by external elements.

What can you say to convince me that you're not being duped by the shaman or the mass-media or the government in an ugly big-brother world of aristocrats, propaganda/policy wonks, and corporations in a perpetual state of blind ambition?

The key here is "the message". With all of the different religions out there, why should I consider your faith any better than the one they're selling over at Joe's Diner? This is where I really am not going to feel the slightest guilt at your accusations. What do Christians offer me? I believe it goes something like: "If you work hard for the boss man, keep your mouth shut and raise a large family of minimum wage workers without whining, and give a lot of your money to the shaman, when you DIE, YOU will go to HEAVEN!"

You just can't see how silly that sounds! Obviously, being part of the herd is FAR more important to you than it is to us. So be it. But in this forum, you're addressing us non-believers. We define respect quite differently than you do.
