First off, no one can prove whether there is a God or not. According to Christians, God is real and he loves everyone. He even loved all the Jews that brutally died in the Holocaust, loved them so much that he sent them to Hell because they don't believe Jesus is his son. Reread that last sentence and tell me what part of it makes sense. I still don't understand how God loves everyone. How he has a "plan" for everyone. Apparently he allows people to be born and become atheists, Jews, Muslims, and so on, just so they can be sent to Hell for eternity. I find this to be a flaw in the Christian religion. So the Christians are the lucky ones and everyone else who has a different belief is doomed for eternity? You know some people are certain religions (in fact most people) because they are raised that way in their family? A person raised Jewish is likely to stay Jewish. A person raised Muslim is likely to stay Muslim. Why wouldn't God allow everyone to be raised Christian? Because of this, many nice people that I know that are different religions from Christianity are going to Hell! This is not love. But many will say that the Bible is true and that it is the Christian mission to spread the word of God. They are trying to convert those of other religions. Although, many will find it difficult to transition to another religion. It is not an easy thing to do to change someone else's belief. You also have to keep in mind that people of different religions want to convince others that theirs is the truth. It's a never ending cycle; everyone believes that their religion is the true one. As for me, I am agnostic. I do not know if there is a God or not, but I do believe that the Bible is not true. Yes, no one can prove how life came to be or how anything came to be for that matter. These are questions that have no answer and probably never will. But that doesn't mean you should believe like the Bible, written many years ago, just because it attempts to give an answer. According to the Bible, we are all a product of incest. We are flawed as a species because a talking snake told a girl to eat an apple from a magic tree. The entire universe was made in six days, and then God rested because he was... tired? You can bring up the argument: oh, so something came from nothing, and life appeared out of nowhere? Well, some great being may have created us, but it's not how it was done in the Bible. Like I said, these are questions that have no answers! You might as well ask who created God. Maybe one day we will get answers, but I'm sorry, the Bible is just too silly for me to believe in. And besides, we have evidence on how planets and galaxies are created. You know, nebulas and all that? This stuff exists, you can't ignore it. It's only life... that's the big question. One last thing, read Matthew 5:21-22 before you comment, don't want to increase your risk of going to hell ;)

It seems as though you are less confused by parts of the Bible, and more in disagreement with them. So much so that you wanted to spark a debate about it some time ago. If you find yourself on line any time soon and still wish to talk about it, I often find myself bored. I have to ask though, which part did you want to talk about; >God's love for humanity, >God's plan for humanity and individuals, >God's call for Christians to make disciples of the nations, >The ease of changing religions or why people choose the religions they do, >Why believing what you believe is right is important, >The wisdom of the bible, The timeless advice it gives to even non believers, and the portions still in use today amongst various faith backgrounds, >Why God rested after the 6th day, and God's concept of time, >Literal vs. Figurative translation of the bible, >Us all being a product of incest, >Why creation as described in the bible couldn't have been how a supreme being went about creating the world in a literal or figurative sense of time. Not to be confused with how creation actually may have come about. We're being hypothetical as to why supreme beings choose to do anything. Not that it's any of our business, them being Supreme Beings and all. >Why Christians, such as myself, don't ignore things "like nebulas and all that" and agree that they exist, in that theoretical scientific, "until we can bottle and sell it it doesn't exist in a concrete way" way. >"It's only life...that's the big question."? please clarify. Are we down grading life? Are we asking the huge question of "What is the meaning of life," or "what is life?" How does this fit in with your other arguments? And I read Matthew 5:21-22. I applaud your use of scripture. To ensure I am not sent to hell, during our conversation I will refrain from calling you a moron. To spare myself from judgement, I will not get angry. To spare myself the Sanhedrin, I will not call you a fool. As it was your scripture reference, please do the same. We are now free to converse like adults about which ever topic you choose. I promise to be as knowledgeable as possible and find the most correct answers to all questions. And use punctuation and spell check. Because that's always seemed important. :)

I agree with you and to back you up a little more reference to the subject created "excuses why atheists don't believe" or something along those lines. After the initial disrespect of that statement, I expressed my beliefs after being raised Pentecostal and then recently opening my eyes to the reality of our world today.
