Then why do nearly all people in history believe in a god?

So you are saying god might exist. Perhaps there is something in your heart that makes you feel that god exists.

I'm not saying that. I think the odds are overwhelmingly in favor of God not existing given the evidence (or lack thereof) that I've seen.

Timothy, John 33:7-26. You know god exists in yr heart but you deny him because of sin.

One of the key pillars of sjw is feminism which is now about female privilege.

Feelings have become more import than truth, its gone beyond PC culture and now it's daycare culture.

Trump is the manifestation of the pull back to equilibrium...... unfortunately.

Soda, you can't prove god doesn't exist.

In the sense that it's impossible to prove something doesn't exist, that's correct. But just because it can't be proven that God doesn't exist doesn't make the odds 50:50 either.

I definitely think Sam Harris was out of line and wrong AND he got obliterated on TYT.

What was he wrong about?

Sam was basically making generalizations on Islam. I've noticed that Sam has a problem with stepping out of his own skin and seeing the other side of a discussion. I don't think Islam or radical Islamic is the greatest threat to the world or even our civilization, I think it is Christianity. Sam can't seem to understand that the U.S., a Christian nation, is responsible for more deaths than all these Islamic groups we are trained to hate combined. But because he is the beneficiary of one side of the discussion he can't see the point against him.

He also did this again when he was involved in a show with one of my favorite comedians, Hannibal Burress. Hannibal is just a comedian so he was not able to eloquently address Sam, but Sam again showed his is simply incapable of seeing outside of his POV.



here's the one on police shootings



Sam was never one of my favorite, but he fell pretty far after I saw these.

You're new here...I caution you about making assumptions about the positions and beliefs of others.  You've made an incorrect assumption here regarding junebug72, her views, and the intent of her topic.  It appears you are under the impression that she is a believer and asking fellow believers this question.

If someone asked me that question, I'd turn it around on them and ask them how they could live with believing nonsense. Since they've asked about hell, I'd make the reasonable assumption that they're a believer. I'd assumed that junebug72 was asking it rhetorically, and that's how I responded. Perhaps a less ambiguous response would have been

   I'd turn this around and ask them how they live with themselves believing all of this made-up nonsense?

I'm definitely asking theists how they deal with knowing a loved one was not saved and went to Hell after death? 

Thanks for helping guys.

I believe JuneBug is asking this hypothetical question to believers... and the answer is... I believe, that it disturbs believers greatly.   This is why parents who believe, and have atheist children, spend so much time and energy trying to preach to their children instead of bonding with them.

It's more important to 'save' your child from hell than have a good relationship with them.   This is why many times, believers and atheists who are friends or related spend so much time dealing with this issue.

I've cautioned believers in the past that, if God is real and has a plan for an atheist, then, God would know exactly what it would take to convince each person and sway them in faith.   So, by worrying and preaching and badgering non believers, what a believer is really saying...

"I don't want you to go to hell for not thinking like I do... I'm terrified of my loving God, and I'm terrified for you...   and I don't trust God to save you in any other way if I don't lecture you as often as possible."

Oh, I thought Skep followed the teaching of Russell et al... maybe I am wrong but he seems to follow the 'party line' most of the time.
