    You're not fooling anyone. Not even your fellow-atheists.
    They're all in the same pickle as you are - they know how it feels to be faced with that question. Like you, they DUCK!






    2.) Where is the empirical evidence that a sentient creator exists or has ever existed? You are making the claim that god exist so you need to prove your claim to be true. Your belief or faith are based on emotions so that are not empirical evidence.
    The bible was written by man so it is no more proof of God than Harry Potter is proof that Dumbledore exists.
    Since non-believers wouldn't accept Scriptural truths - I use science, Lisa.


    Hey....if you don't have science on your side, you're obviously plucking your conclusions from thin air!

    I understand the terrible predicament you're in. You're close-minded.
    Of course, as an atheist - you're forced to be close-minded!

    It's an irrational position. If atheism is a bonafide religion - I'd say it will be a cult.

    Science says nada, nothing, zero, a big goose egg about the possibility of god.

    Asking for proof is ducking? I think not.

    You cannot petition the lord with prayer.
    I'm retired. I own my home mortgage free. I basically have no debt and every other week I spend in vero beach in an oceanfront condo.
    Someone please tell me again about how envious and jealous I am of others.

    Its a good question, "Kingdom of God" also called Kingdom Of Heaven ..is it a physical place or is it supernatural slash magical. I think "The Kingdom of God" can be summarized as the everlasting realm where God is sovereign and Jesus Christ rules forever.

    This realm, what is it exactly ..where is it ..what does it look like.

    Its my understanding "The kingdom of God" is the place where all Christians pursue and yearn for. Then, where is the kingdom of God? Where's the evidence it really exist, I need more than a few words written 2000 years ago.

    Might this image be what it looks like..

    Is Mashmont RC because he says so? Would you know the Devil when he comes to you?

    A lot of children abused by pedo priests did not spot him coming.

    Now I mis-read goals for goats because I thought of Heidrun.

    Why do you doubt that he is? Has he made statements that are inaccurate/not reflective of Catholicism?

    Yes, I would.

    I always look at the great lives of the canonized saints who were universally recognized as great people and were the most devout believers of God. That's probably the most tangible evidence there is.
