[quote]What do you mean? If you are proposing some awful experience led me to lose my faith, you're wrong.[/quote] I'm not. But it's rare that decisions for or away from faith are made rationally. They're not rational decisions. They're emotional. That's been denigrated in our hyper-empirical w...

[quote]Because it could no longer fit in with what I knew about the world.[/quote] That's what every atheist/agnostic says. Pick up a few emotions and turn them over and the answer usually becomes apparent. Just my experience. ...

re: Do you think God controls the weather? - the808bass
I'd agree that there seems to be a serious deficit of depth in his understanding of Christianity. But professions of faith are individual and I'm more than willing to err on the side of grace there. ...

[quote]At this point you are just trolling to make 808 upset[/quote] I doubt it. He left his faith for a personal reason. Backing into the reason for leaving the faith later on is pretty common - post hoc justifications. It's likely he hasn't fully faced his own personal reasons for leaving. ...

[quote]However, I see horrible gruesome deaths of children. Children with parents that, no doubt, prayed for their safety. God didn't give it to them. So, to me, saying that god can intervene is pretty cruel to someone like that.... and saying "oh, it was all part of god's plan that your child died"...

[quote]However, the idea we are talking about is that saying "it was all god's plan/god did it" might take away from experiencing the true human emotion of a negative [/quote] Sure. It might. It just doesn't seem to have done that in the course of Christian theology or history in any significant w...

re: Do you think God controls the weather? - the808bass
[quote]You either don't understand or are simply choosing not to. I explained why saying "god did it" would take away from the true human emotion in the situation. The fact that you disagree (because of, I'm assuming, anecdotal reasons) does not mean you are correct. [/quote] But you're equating ...

[quote]But, I haven't experienced a homily where the priest specifically "called out" homosexuals.[/quote] I have experienced sermons where the subject has been addressed. But in the past 15 years, it's never been addressed in the singular. And by that I mean that it's never been a "thank God h...

[quote]-the Christian[/quote] You came out swinging in the thread (which is your M.O). Don't start none, won't be none. I can have as pleasant a conversation as you wish. If you start from the ridiculous proposition that this is an easy and axiomatic discussion, you won't be taken seriously. ...
