atheism itself is a bit irrational. for instance, the fact that atheists assume everything, just like christians.
Name one thing that I assume.
Why not, believe in anything as a possiblity?
If this is the logic you use, then I can deduce that you'll gladly believe in my flying carpet that created the universe. So do you? If so, I'll need a donation of $100 to allow you into the club so you don't burn for eternity, because even thought the flying carpet loves you, he needs your money.
it is possible that the christian god does exist. but if he does exist, then i would be afraid for everyone considering the bibles tales of horror. it seems to me that, when you want to attack something, you had better be prepared. you cant come in guns blazing, without the guns. let alone without the ammo.
And i dont know what version of the bible you guys got that whole, denying the existence of the holy spirit thing, because it depends which level of christianity that your talking about, let alone which type.
It's Mark 3:29. How about you provide a version in which the passage doesn't exist. I can't find a single one. We used KJV.
If you go into a church right now, and told them you have denyed the existence of the holy spirit, they would tell you that you can be forgiven.
Yes, which is an example of how extremely dishonest Church representatives are, when it fits their agenda.
I myself, hold that belief. that anything is in fact, possible, when it pertains to the afterlife.
Yes, almost anything is possible. However all loving creators that would torture you for eternity are not. And there is no reason to believe in random nonsense just because some of it is possible.
There is no evidence to prove anything, let alone evidence to disprove.
No evidence to prove anything, eh? This is ridiculous. You sure you don't want to take that back?
Thats what is called, being rational. Using my critical thinking skills, to come to a logical conclusion.
Good critical thinking skills would have gotten you to a point where you realized that some things are proven and some things are disprovable.
Rationality, in no way, involves assuming anything.
Anyway, i am not trying to attack your beliefs, but i figured you guys would have an open enough mind to accept the possiblity, that you could be just as wrong as you think the christians are. from a rational point of view, no one is perfect.
There are certainly things we could be wrong about. Theism being irrational is not one of them. When someone provides proof or good reason to believe, we'll change our stance. Until that day, theism is irrational.
