Am I an atheist?
I've randomly read a lot of postings, especially the "answers" to the 89 questions. I find most of the answers silly, but I also consider most of the questions silly. There are really only a few types of questions, those based on biblical text interpretation and those based on God's power.
Can God create a boulder so heavy he could not lift it? The answer is yes, he could, and then yes, he would lift it.
In my own personal viewpoint I consider myself Oblivious. I simply don't care if there is a God or afterlife. I live my life by the morals taught me by the culture I was raised in, i.e. I try to do good, but sometimes fall short. (My advice to you warmongers out there, taking up arms for or against, just relax. It doesn't really matter.)
I saw the great debate by Mr. Sapeint and Mr. Comfort, and I am curious of the existence of Jesus now. Kelly's response was that there was no archival evidence of Jesus, but records can be expunged. Does anyone know of any actual proof that he walked the earth, regardless of whether he was God embodied or just a man.
As for the Scientific proof of God, the only reproducable claim I can make is a little similiar to Mr. Comforts third "proof". Personal experience, but not in the manner he dictated. If I relax and meditate, close my eyes, relax my body, and let my mind drift I feel I can tap into some kind of euphoria that seems greater than my own simple self or daily life. It feels like an endless flow of good energy. The only other time I get this feeling is when I am creating; painting, or writing, and then not every time. I am not sugesting that this is the "Hand of God" I am touching, nor am I guessing that it isn't, but I will state I think it is a common human experience, in that anyone can tap into it.
Main point, would I be considered an atheist or not?
