I'm pretty convinced at this point that Lance is just messing with us, there's no way anyone could actually be this stupid. I'm calling Poe's law here.
But just because nobody addressed this one, thought I'd throw this in.
@ JeffPT - Faith is not ridiculous. I think you should be treated with the kid glove. Here's an example about Faith which may help you understand jus a little. You work two weeks before payday right. why do you go to work? Because you know that in two weeks time, you'll get paid although you don't know what will actually happen in those two weeks time. that's the faith i'm talking about.
If you two have any arguments you want me to answer post it and i will answer it but don't post nonsens like that long one which you've posted which is nothing but guess guess guess. Now, lets debate.
It is not based on faith that you will receive your paycheck. It's based on evidence, ie., I've received my paycheck every two weeks for the past 12 years. Millions of people receive their paychecks every day. Also, if I don't receive my next paycheck, I can talk to my manager, or go to the labor bureau and file a complaint.
Religious faith persists because it is impossible to disprove. This does not mean it is right, it means that the believers are so deluded and insane that their minds litterally cannot comprehend the possibility of being wrong, so they ignore the mountains of evidence to the contrary. The more logical and irrefutable the argument against their beliefs, the deeper they dig in their heals, believing that an attack on their beliefs only shows that their beliefs must be true.
This is why I've said that debating believers is pointless. They rationalize and rationalize, making up more and more fairy tale nonsense to explain why the book of fairy tale nonsense that their ridiculous beliefs are based on doesn't make any sense. We see it everyday here in these forums. Ask any Christian why X quote from the bible is insane, or disagrees with Y quote from the bible, and they will invariably make up some new lore on the spot or simply fall back on the old "we're not meant to understand that" which is the equivalent of taking your ball and going home because the other kids play better than you.
No matter, slowly and surely Jesus and sky daddy God are going the way of Zeus, Odin, Amon Ra, and the other mythical gods. Where they were replaced by other gods because the people of those ages still lacked the answers they invented gods to solve, Jesus is being replaced by science and reality, now that we've come out of the caves and no longer fear fire.
Sadly, there are people who actually do believe the things Lance is saying, but they're typically not competent enough to find a website like this and vomit their bile of malformed thoughts upon their unsuspecting keyboards.
