Irrelevant. Saying reason is the best we have over and over again will not prove it is qualified to address issues the scale of God claims.

There are thousands of gods being worshipped today. Which one is your's? Can you produce evidence that your god exists? BTW, if you happen to praise the Bible god, you haven't studied the difference between fact and fiction. A 2,000 year old god with too many contradictions makes him funnier than any comic book. 1. Thou shalt not kill. 2. Kill all infidels. Bible: Earth is 7,000 years old. Science: Earth is 4.5 billion years old. Also, study the evolution of Homo sapiens. We are the product of one family of primates. There is evidence for this based on science, not some fictional book. https://science.sciencemag.org/content/360/6395/1296.full

@cicerone imposter,
BTW, I have put you on IGNORE. It's too exhausting to continue this "go nowhere" discussion.

I've been doing this for 20 years. It's completely normal for ideologists to run when faced with inconvenient reasoning. You are in good company. Lots of it.

Why do moderns mostly decide to invest in fantasy over reality?

Because we moderns are mostly morons.

So sad but true.

SORRY!

@hawkeye10,
Fantasy can free up the brain.
Too much reality can then the brain to monotonous glop.

Trust me, I never used the word awesome in the classroom or to any student.

The assertion sir is that teachers do not generally sufficiently educate nor challenge their students, talk to me about that!

@Sturgis,
I sometimes use 'Outstanding!'. Not that I was ever a teacher.
