1. proof to who? What proof would satisfy you that God is good. What is good? Relative to what base? I think creating babies is pretty good, is it not? He does that ya know. He gave us this nice planet to walk around on, that is pretty good. He's answered my prayers more than once...that was pretty neat imo. I'm not sure what you are looking for. What will satisfy you that a non existent God is good? I don't need proof so why would I look for it for someone that doesn't believe?
2. You want to argue logic, that's not what I am here for. This isn't a debate club, or it is? I want to participate in threads and explore other points of view. Can never have too much perspective. Had a logic class in college...hated it. Just say what you want to say without worrying about strawmen and such. Your problem is you demand proof where you know there is none. So why even bother with the conversation...just to be right? Seems like there should be more to it than that.
3. I think critically enough, but God isn't something to think critically about, at least not in the sense that you are meaning as in proving existence. What do you think that verse you referenced is saying? You don't think we have free will? I know you don't think there was an Adam and Eve so we'll just move along. We differ on what sacrifice means so I'm guessing we will differ on other things, such as "all knowing"
Time for bed...will pick this up tomorrow.
1. Interesting, so you believe without any reason to do so? Is that what you are admitting (that you are gullible)? Babies are not proof of a God and your saying so doesn't make it so. All you are displaying is credulity and gullibility (and your assumptions which aren't reliable). Nature does not tell us how it got here until we investigate and your assumption of your interpretation of "Answered prayer" isn't a good reason either because your interpretation of it is unreliable for determining what is true from what is false. Plenty of studies show that people who pray fair no better than people who don't (which is exactly what we would expect if prayer does nothing - some people would get what they want, some people wouldn't).
It's clear from these statements above that you don't care whether or not your beliefs are actually true.
2. It's not surprising that you hated logic (because it demolishes your irrational arguments for your beliefs in the bible). But logic applies regardless of whether or not you like it to. It applies to all arguments or statements of fact. Your statement above is, yet again, another testimony that you don't care if your beliefs are actually true.
3. No, you don't
think critically enough. Otherwise you wouldn't be trying to combat logic and sound reasoning so that you can keep believing irrational beliefs. Your arbitrary definition of "all-knowing" is faulty. You are attempting to redefine the term so you can avoid having to be shown that you are wrong (plain and simple). A being that does not know something is, by definition, NOT ALL KNOWING!
Regardless of how badly you want to make 2+2 equal five. It won't. Logic applies to you whether you like it or not and your avoidance of it only displays your intellectual dishonesty, laziness, and credulity.
