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.

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.

And what scale is that? You have some means of measuring it or are you implying the scale faith imagines it covers? If reason is insufficient to answer such questions how can you discuss ‘scale of God claims’ when you have no means of knowing what that scale is? The entire argument/discussion is pointless unless all you’re trying to tell us is something along the lines of ‘I have faith God’s scale is so vast it’s beyond knowing. And around and around it goes like one of Aquinas’s circular thoelogical tomes.

And how did you measure this ‘scale’? Is your estimate of ‘the scale of God’ equal to others making the same assertion? The term ‘will not prove’ however implies an obligation to illucidate what would constitute proof in this context or are you simply going to ask us all to have ‘faith’?

Why?

Because we are a mote in God's eye and it makes us fearful, and because we have thought long and hard about it and concluded God is real.

If you don't, fine just STFU about your opinion. No one is going to change their minds because the wonderful CI demands they do.
