6 reasons for us heathens to believe in God
"Look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets. None of them ever claimed to be equal to God. Surprisingly, Jesus did. That is what sets Jesus apart from all the others."
I always thought that if you want to change the world then you have to start with yourself. So if the heads of state want to end terrorism, they should go ahead and kill themselves. - Anti-Flag
the 6 reasons
What have we got then...
1. "A zillion microsoft users can't be wrong."
2. "God cannot not exist, seriously."
3. "Really, he definitely cannot not exist."
4. "If you disagree then you approve of raping babies."
5. "Stop being so closed-minded about the bible."
6. "Christianity is better than other religions because Christianity says so."
HA HA HA! and another HA! for the road. given infinite time and weathering, do I think that mount rushmore could occur naturally? Absofuckinglutely. That's why it's INFINITY you dumbass. given an infinity of time, MY face would fucking appear there. as well as a visage like that most christians seem to think god/jesus looks like. I'm sure that when it eventually did, millions would take it as irrefutable evidence of the existance of god. and given infinite junkyards and twisters, you'd have a fucking FLEET of 747's before too long.

1. Does God exist? Throughout history, in all cultures of the world, people have been convinced there is a God.
Right....and people have believed in all kinds of superstitious nonsense. What happened to development and figuring shit out? These silly theists and their convulted logic...
On a side note, this kid (happened to be an asshole) in my Hebrew school once used this argument. When I challenged it, he told me I needed a life. Nice comeback.
The Earth...its size is perfect.
Then why are we overpopulated?
Water...colorless, odorless and without taste, and yet no living thing can survive without it.
This only further proves the concept of evolution, you nutcase. Everything has to have it to survive because that's part of what we're made up of. Duh.
Only a mind more intelligent and knowledgeable than humanity could have created the human brain.
Or you know...it evolved.
4. Does God exist? Humankind's inherent sense of right and wrong cannot be biologically explained.
Not every human has a concept of right and wrong. What about sociopaths? It's all in the emotional responses and what we're "raised" to believe among other things. Most of us naturally feel empathy for other humans and creatures with human-like qualities because without it, we'd all kill each other and fail as a species.
We tend to that anyway...so maybe we do fail. Whatever. This doesn't prove your point.
I'm bored with this. Next innocous argument...
*Our world is far more complex than the rigid structure we want to assign to it, and we will probably never fully understand it.*

Well, I wrote a small response to that, and I'll repost some ideas here, as a response to the last poster (peppermint):
1. it's not only that, but there's more... people have NOT been convinced that there was A god, but that there were MANY gods... which one(s) is(are) the real one(s) ?
2. Mistaken cause and effect. Is the Earth perfect for us because we are like that, or are we like that because of the way Earth is ?
3. so what does the necessity of water prove exactly... ?
4. Not really... how about more intelligences lower than the human one, but working together ?
5. the sense of right and wrong CAN be biologically explained... you just have to learn more biology for that
