    Re: Do you believe in God?

    In the United States between 6 and 12% of the total population are atheist or agnostic depending on the poll. In Western Europe the percentage is much higher 20% in the UK, 33% in France, 25% in Germany. There are exceptions, only 3% in Greece and Portugal. Only 1% of Polands population are atheist. At this point in this poll 108 votes have been placed. 59 believers and 49 non believers. Why do you suppose that the percentage of atheist/agnostics is 45.37% so far on this forum? Is there something about a political forum that attracts atheist? 45% is high considering atheist are such a small percentage of the overall population. And another thing why does it seem that atheist are so hostile towards people who believe in god?

    John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."

    The new testament clearly asserts that Justification by god can only come through Jesus Christ.

    Gal. 3:22 "But the Scripture has shut up all men under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe."

    Romans 5:1 1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ""


    The entire premise of the new testament is that Jesus Christ died on the cross for mans sins. So that man can be absolved of their sins so that they can enter the kingdom of god. And the basis for that is that you must believe that Jesus was the messiah in order to not burn in hell for eternity (or at least until the second coming of Christ when god destroys hell and the souls within it).

    The new testament tries to use the Resurrection as direct proof of Jesus being the messiah. But since it is only legend that Jesus awoke from his death this story falls flat on its face and today people are left with only faith. the faith lies with the new testament and its written words. Without those words written down we would have no clue that Jesus existed in mortal form much less any other form.

    Because the religious in America are infamous for trying to force their views on everyone. If they'd just keep their beliefs to themselves, nobody would care. When we can't have a political campaign without all the candidates trying to out-holier-than-thou each other, why shouldn't atheists and others who recognize that we have a SECULAR GOVERNMENT be pissed? National Day of Prayer? Um... secular government anyone?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    atheist are notorious for trying to force there views on believers. filing law suits to have the ten commandments removed from the public square, crosses removed, nativity scenes removed, in god we trust removed from our currency, and on and on. Forcing their views down the throat of the majority of the population who beleive. If they would keep their disbelief to themselfs, nobody would care.

    No that would be Atheists attempting to stop Christians from forcing their views on everyone else.

    Believers are free to say whatever they like. So I see no need for Theists to force their views through the government. BTW Atheism is not a religion so that argument wont work.

    Like it or not, we have a secular government that is forbisden from endorsing any religion. The government cannot post the Ten Commandments or any other sectarian religious document. That includes schools, courthouses, etc.

    Deal with the reality.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
