Agreed. Besides that, we have five senses, not just one. Air is the medium that conveys light and sound as well as aroma. We can feel it as it passes over our skins and tousles our hair. We can hear it as it rustles leaves.

We also use it to move boats over the water and compress it to support our cars and power air tools. We capture its motion to create electricity.

If any deity were as evident as air, there would be no reason for doubt.
Indeed. Asking a blind person if air is a provable concept can be quite revealing-- a blind person has no doubts at all air is real.

The old phrase "seeing is believing" sometimes has the effect on some folk, that seeing is the *only* sense that counts.

Pft. That one is so old it's not even worth giving the credence of a "that's been addressed already" response. Oh crap, I just gave it that credence.

recently< the Balkan wars as I was explaining to flabadcatowner....before that 'the troubles' in N Ireland. then the long history before those with the world record for laying a bloody swath across the planet in the name of a mythical god...

basically, christians are the kings of killing in the name of their mythical god.

When was that god proven mythical?

I must have missed it.

And I have studied the subject extensively.

Please share your proof.

obviously not extensively enough. the bible that states god is infallibel, and then he gets his own creation story wrong is good proof. also proof that the concept of divine inspiration in the writing or interpretation of the bible is false.

same holds true for the Noachian flood story. proven to not have happened as stated in the bible. why would a god lie about that? how could an infallibel god get that story wrong also?

the whole myth of jesus being stolen from previous religious cults. every aspect of his supposed divinity, from his virgin birth, to walking on water to healing the sick to raising the dead, to rising from the dead...all stolen from previous cults.

why would a god need to steal stories from previous cults in making a saviour?

your cult is a proven myth.

I hate to be the one to break it to you, WoodDuck.

But that disproves no god.

It might arguably disprove some accounts written by men.

But god?

It proves nothing either way.

And here I was all excited that you had proof of something.

Don't tease us again.

Yes, you did:

Is not the same as saying they are christian at all. You changed it, you are a liar.

Does post like this upset you?

Why would you ask about My belief in Muslims claim from this post?

You should really lower your star dust intake. Or as James T. Kirk once said "LDS".

The bottom line with this new post is "only YOU are allowed to lie". Let it go friend, you aren't proving anything else.
