Please respond [#1489]
« on: June 15, 2009, 07:55:28 PM »
Dear writer(s), I have a question for you. I know you get this a lot, but I have a
response to all your '10 questions'. Before you stop reading, you may be interested
in what I have to say because at 17, I am your target audience. While I am no
Philosopher, I believe you raise valid questions and I would like to answer them in
a simple, non-evasive way. I am a devoted follower of Jesus, but I believe that
Christians should not bury their head in the sand, and that what I believe is just
as viable as what you do. I should say that is fair, wouldn't you? Rest assured,
there will be no abuse or ridicule, and I simply wish to answer the questions you
have asked me. I only go about it this way because I would fill up the forum with
what I have to say! If it is possible, and you would care to read, drop me a return
email. I do not want to write a response if no one will read it! Awaiting your
reply, your fellow thinker, [name]

Your best bet is to join the forum as soon as possible so we can talk directly with you.

Plenty of people will read it here, trust me. Join up... I personally think that people are taken more seriously when they join the forum to post their answers than people who just send their answers via PM.

I edit a lot of my posts. The reason being it to add content or to correct grammar/wording. All edits to remove wording get a strike through through the wording.

Only if you can support your statments and beliefs with evidence. If not, it would not only be unfair to say that, but dishonest and delusional.

Welcome and I hope you sign up so we can settle the matter, intellectually.
You believe evolution and there is no evidence for that. Where is the fossil record of a half man half ape. I've only ever heard about it in reading.

OK, let's have it.  Why would your heinous god, and his son Jesus, allow this to happen?  And why does Jesus hate children with cleft palate?  his father, god, never heals a child with cleft palate.  god, if omnipotent and omniscient, knows these kids will be born this way.  They are healed by the hands of man, not god or Jesus.

Now, your turn.  Why does god hate these children?

If you come to the forums, and you humbly follow one rule, you will find that you are generally welcomed for your honesty and you can ask and expect answers on nearly any topic;

The history of religion is a long attempt to reconcile old custom with new reason, to find a sound theory for an absurd practice.  --Sir James George Frazer
