As of 12:30 PM I can verify that you like being a dickhole. Past that, I'm not sure what use you are to yourself or anyone else for that matter.

What happened to the former high school athlete, military vet, with 3 rental houses, lots of money, smoking hot atheist wife, and is now in medical school that was posting in this thread?

I want to know what other awesome things he has done.


I once killed a bear with my bare hands while telling Chuck Norris to STFU. Then I teleported to an abortion clinic to eat my daily allowance of babies.

I would still like to hear a good argument for why the Christian faith is the one true faith. Imagine you are in a debate with members of other religions and have to throw out some logic other than "I just know." And no, saying "atheists are smug bastards" doesn't count. Neither does saying, "read the bible," all religions have texts. Neither does, "it answers important questions about the purpose of life." All faiths do. If all the religions in the world were presented to someone who had never been exposed before, why should they pick a certain one over the other?


Yeah, apparently contradicting the obvious logical fallacies, contradictions with evidence, and dubious history of the bible is 'smug', but thinking you have a personal relationship with the creator of the universe and understand the universe better than vastly more qualified scientists that dedicate their lives to studying it, is not smug.

Good question for sure. But there is one thing I will point out though. I do not think there could be any debate that would satisfy you, even were there to be a gathering of the most learned minds of every major faith where they all laid out their own arguments for you. The reason for this is that all belief systems hold at their core the requirement of you having faith. And faith by it's nature is the belief in something you cannot fully explain nor even fully understand. From your post, it sounds that what you are truly looking for are answers based in provable fact. That's simply impossible to reconcile with matters of faith.


You hit the nail on the head. Faith is not a virtue. The idea that blindly believing the religion that geography (and parents) dictated you be indoctrinated with, is a virtue, is the greatest con in the history of man.

I actually have no idea whom you're talking about. And I certainly haven't read his book, unless he writes scientific texts.

Education and IQ positively correlated with atheism.

most christians dont do their research.


and most atheists do?

Hard to take you serious with blanket statements like this when it's clear there are idiots on both sides.


If religious people actually conducted unbiased, dispassionate research of the origin and spread of their religion, or research regarding the plausibility of the events of the bible, or researched the validity of 'miracles', or the effectiveness of prayer, then they would have to be intellectually dishonest to remain believers. My assumption is based on a strong correlation between advanced science education and atheism.
