Great side-steps as usual Mr. Beard.
My claim is this: Christianity has been going on for about 2000 years, and is still going. The Bible is about 2000 years old and is still being read. Nobody has disproved either. And how many have tried? You atheists are into proof, right? Then prove it wrong!
No sidesteps from me, but from here, it looks as if you could be waltzing. Back at you holybuckets: what about Hinduism, 4500 years and still going? What does that prove?
However, you know how gullible people pray to their gods and when nothing happens, they say, "Well, perhaps he said, "No.""? Obviously, there's always an excuse for there not being a god.
We ask, "Who made god?" and you say, "He was always there."
We say, "OK, the universe was always there." And Christians get all upset.
We ask, "What's god like?"
You say "He is unknowable"... and then you proceed to tell us what he means when he says something idiotic.
My point here is that it is a question of the standard of proof required to rid you of this infirmity of belief that is weighing down your life.
I want to help you holybuckets, "What proof would satisfy you that there were no God/gods?"
Looking forward to a reply.
