Can you prove the thoughts that i think are my own?
Whoop! Solipsism here we come!
I do know that i have seen and heard some crazy things. some not even possible, but true. If i were to tell you a true story about people not getting touched by point blank gun shots, would you have to discredit them on the basis that you cannot believe that because that is beyond your comprehension?
I would require evidence because I know Christians can and do lie. I would need to know where the shooter and target were standing, the weapon, etc. You know, actual facts, not nonsense.
because there are a lot of things in the universe that are beyond our comprehension yet we believe in them still.
and again, this is no reason to claim that some supernatural being invented by xenophobic sheep herders is real.
So what is your basis for disproving that God doesn't talk to people besides "he is imaginary".
That’s quite enough. Many theists claim that their god talks to them and they claim that God has told them good *and* bad things to do in his name. We have murders all of the time claiming this, that doctors who perform abortions should be killed, that children should be killed, etc, etc. And unfortunately for you, you all have the same evidence, only subjective claims with nothing else. Shall we accept that *all* people who claim to hear god are telling the truth? If not, please do show how we can tell the difference. Do we require them to swear to this god that is the “truth”? Shall we splash holy water on them and see it burns them? An exorcism? Because your claim that “God would only say “good” things” is ludicrous and dependent on your modern view point since your god has often said many things what we now would consider bad things, like, oh, commit genocide in his name.
like what's to stop me from saying that the Big bang isn't imaginary? i can't see it. i see no evidence that that in fact happened.
Then that is your problem since there is evidence it did happen. This is called willful ignorance, caboose. You use the same science that supports the BBT every single day, you hypocrite.
i mean by a christian standpoint, i don't know how God created the universe, He could have done it like the big bang, or some other way. but for now i don't really see any evidence explaining how humans came to be because of random chance.
More willful ignorance. How charming. No one claims “random chance”.
so atheism doesn't really prove much to me.
Atheism isn’t suppose to “prove much” other than demonstrating that there is a good reason for not believing in gods. You have yet to show evidence that gods exist.
but when it comes to God talking to people, like if you studied the bible you'd know that TIMES WERE DIFFERENT BACK THEN.
Oh yes, the excuse that times were “different”. They certainly were, with ignorant people claiming nonsense was real before science came on the scene. funny how your god disappears as soon as people aren’t taking myths as the end all and be all.
Nowadays God still does things the same, but things were different. When you see the times when God would will entire cities to be destroyed that was because He was trying to protect His people from the people who turned away. Why wouldn't He be with His followers?
Does things the same? Really? Where are the smitings, kaboose? poor thing, your god, can’t even get it up to smite priests who are harming children. Why isn’t he smiting North Korea for harming Christians? Hmmm?
and when you say that maybe He was testing a man to see if he'd kill someone is absolutely against what the bible says.
Nice excuse but you’ve just made your god to be a moron and not omniscient nor omnipotent since a god like that wouldn’t’ need to test *anyone*.
For one: times were different back then with sacrifices, but that doesn't mean God was cruel. we live in a completely different society. 2: God does not tempt. He does not test us beyond our abilities.
What a pathetic lie. If this was true, then I wouldn’t’ be an atheist would I?
He wouldn't test a man who would fail like that. read 1 Chorinthians 10:13 if you want proof that that is said in the bible.
The bible also says that followers of JC will be able to do miracles. That’s not true either.
Feel free to nitpick at this all you want, but my final point is that God can and does speak to people who listen to Him. and to all of those ridiculous comments on the murderous man, God doesn't test us to that extent, and that would be more of temptation which is a demon thing.
Oh this doesn’t need nitpicked, it needs to be shown to be the utter pile of crap it is. You have yet to show evidence of this and especially evidence that God isn’t responsible for people killing their children, etc. The vague and nebulous nature that you must claims for your god and its communications demonstrates that anyone can claim any nonsense about your god and there’s nothing to allow you to show them “wrong” in your opinion. It’s also pretty funny that your poor god either intentionally allows demons to “tempt” people or is powerless to prevent it. What a impotent little deity.
