Do some research on the 'anthropic 'principle', Bulkboy.
i totally agree with your previous posts on your disdain for those who try to shove their religion down your throat or have pity for those who don't follow their religion because there is no hope for them. no man made religion is going to rule my life.
though you make good points on the possibility of there not being a God, you must admit freako, there is some possibility of there actually being a God. sense we do not know everything and there are some matters that are unexplainable to us. this is something IS has said is a possibility. his reasoning though is because since we cannot disprove a God, there is possibility that there is one.
why do we believe Columbus' voyage to the americas? because it was told time and time again by others who have sworn it to be fact. Same thing with the bible
-I don' get the athiest way of thinking. This is how I know the bible to be true. Faith, first of all, and second, because in the good book, ALL of the prophecies have come to be true, so far.
Dear athiest, if I tell you about christianity, and you die and nothing happens(which won't lol), then I'm wrong and nothiing bad will happen to you. Your soul will just vanish. However, if I am right(which I "believe"(not to be misconstrued)I am), then you will have made the best decision of your life and you will go to heaven. What is there to lose for you?
Skeptic and Duality, in no way shape or form did I try to evangelize or talk down upon anyone lol. I was actually saying what I believed. Do I have to end every sentence with, "now I'm not trying to convert you, that's just how I feel? NO. There was not one implication of conversion there, sorry if it got misunderstood.
And I don't think I deserve anymore than anyone. My life isn't more fulfull at all. I think and know that I deserve hell, but..etc(you know,grace of God.) And oh BTW, "not trying to convert anyone here, that's just what I think of it".None of the aforementioned words were meant to cause any harm to anyone, I just have to rant quickly, as I am not smart enough to gather thoughts over long periods of time lol.
P.S define a soul without saying the words "belief" or "believe".
reading and living by the bible is like reading and living by flex and muscle and fitness. Sure the pictures are often fun to look at but if you start following whats written within your most likely smoking crack.
i really dont have the time nor the energy to put forth in this thread.. im not here to convert anyone or make them believe in God.. to each their own.. maybe one day ill contribute to this thread but as of now i dont feel the need to..

as for the prophecies? Read
You were talking down to us... and you WERE trying to convert us. You blatantly said you werent gonna rest until you got us to realise what you were about. You basically said that we were less than you because you have 'faith'.
Im not trying to start anything... just pointing out a couple of mistakes you made in the quoted post.
