There are no claims of faith that stand up to logical rigor.
I'm amused that no one has figured that out and you
need a person of faith to tell you that. The rules of this
forum do not allow people like myself to engage you in
conversation. I'm not supposed to be here and am being
monitored so that I don't make any statements that are
contrary to your world view.
There you go again making more assumptions. What worldview? Have I stated my view? NOPE. This is (once again) your delusion , likely sold to you by other religious followers who got it from those before them. Atheism is NOT a worldview. How many times do we have to tell you people this? Atheism is the lack of belief is god or gods. That is all. Anything else is NOT atheism.
Secondly, stop crying about being moderated. The moderation you are now receiving is completely warranted given your actions here at WWGHAF - especially your childish refusal to answer questions directly and forthrightly.
Finally, thanks for admitting that faith fails. So why are you living by that which fails? Could it be b/c you ASSUMED the bible was "the word of God" and absolutely refuse to consider any interpretation of it other than the one you assumed? More confirmation bias! More importantly, it is quite a contradiction to claim that you care whether or not your beliefs are true only to base your life upon big assumptions which have their foundation in credulity and confirmation bias.
Can you see why many of us find you dishonest?
But you folks are under the illusion that faith is logical.
It's not. Faith is the opposite of logic. It is accepting
the unseen. Sorry. Your rules only allow for liars.
So that who you get to talk to.
So you admit that you are deliberately lying to us in your conversations here? WOW. That is quite amusing for someone who claims to be a follower of Christ. However, you are quite wrong in your charge. I am not at all under some delusion that faith is logical. I know
faith is irrational (aka - illogical which is the opposite of logical) - and that is why it is to be rejected. How comical it is that you rejected my quotation of House ("If you could reason with religious people there would be no religious people."
) only to then demonstrate exactly the point of the quote. Your belief system is irrational - and as such ought to be rejected. But like nearly every religious person on the planet, you hold onto it IN SPITE of the knowledge that it is absurd and irrational (just as I did for over a decade) - and you do so in hypocrisy b/c you don't live your life that way in consistency (aka the salesman at the door asking you to just have faith in his magic product).
Yes, faith is the opposite of logic. It is pretending to know things you don't know, believing things when you have no good reason to do so, and deliberately blinding yourself from contrary evidence. Again you have demonstrated, quite clearly, that you do not care whether or not your beliefs are actually true - otherwise you wouldn't be relying on faith (but rather logic, reason, and evidence). You just want to believe what you want to believe b/c it makes you feel comfortable.
Faith defies logic. Your rules only allow liars who pretend
that faith is logical. They are sucking up to the lie that
faith is logical. It never is. That's the Truth.
I appreciate your honesty, but it still doesn't give you a pass on separating fact from fiction. See how you've sacrificed your rational mind for credulity and superstition? Faith is absolutely useless in separating fact from fiction in any reliable sense. I challenge you to demonstrate otherwise. Your problem is that you merely read the bible and believed what it said BEFORE doing any critical disinterested investigation (like you would with other books or weird claims). You believed it "on faith" merely because IT SAID to do so. Yet you DO NOT do that with other claimed holy books, salesmen at your front door, or other supernatural claims. So, you are practicing intellectual hypocrisy.
