I think Bible is the word of God because God has told me that.

Other people have heard God speak to them.  Ever hear of Vince Li?  God spoke to him, too.[1]  God spoke to Terry Mark Mangum, telling him to "carry out a code of retribution" and kill a homosexual flight attendant.[2]  George Bush heard God, and believed that the wars in the Middle East were a fulfillment of Biblical prophesy.[3] 

If you hear a voice talking to you, and no one is there, that is a sign of schizophrenia, not God.  You should get psychiatric help right away, before that voice tells you to do something like what Vince Li did.

isn't ETERNAL HAPPINESS worth the effort?

To be honest, if being a kind respectful person who does what s/he can for humanity can't get you into this "ETERNAL HAPPINESS" (emphasis clearly not added,) I really don't want to be a part of it, because I wouldn't be happy knowing that the leader was such a prick anyway, but there is still no evidence, so even that wouldn't matter.

If you are kind respectful person who does what s/he can for humanity, then you are already on your way to eternal happiness. Because that is what Christianity teaches you to be like.

But you must also be baptized to have all your sins forgiven, and you must try to abandon all future sins after the baptizing - and repent when you fall in them again and again.

Then you clearly misunderstood my response.

AMEN!!! =]
Which post are you referring to? Are you talking about the OP or the one just above yours? You kind of have to be specific in a place like this.

Yes, I must know whether to direct you to the refutations, or feel like you have changed your mind a bit.

I believe it was to the OP, I don't think vinnybonboot knows how to use the quote function.

A god is like a rock: it does absolutely nothing until someone or something forces it to do something. The only capability the rock has is doing nothing until another force compels it physically to move.
