The only god that Cleveland ever had left for Miami.

I don't know who you mean. The gods I was refering to are in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Maybe I'm too subtle for EvC.

I rode off into the sunset, went all the way around the world and now I'm back where I started.

said the child to his father

Remember, we're talking about a missing father here, a deadbeat dad. The first thing he needs to do to step up his game is to show up at the court.

Yet you cling to this notion that any god worth considering must have evidence to support their existance.


You're being dishonest.

You cling to the notion that evidence is important in every situation that really matters. You look at the evidence before you drive through an intersection or step off a curb.

The only reason you don't insist on evidence for God is because it doesn't matter whether God exists or not.

When we were teenagers, we would experiment with drugs. If someone we knew gave us a pill....


But after you took the pill you decided - based on the evidence - whether it was a good pill or a bad pill. You didn't just cling to it for better or worse like you do with God.

Phat writes:

You claim that it does not matter whether or not God is real but I strongly disagree.


And yet you have no argument to back up your disagreement, just wishful thinking. If God matters, show the evidence.

... we work those issues out with our significant other rather than simply examine evidence on her record and then simply tossing her out.


But you can't "work things out" with God. I've suggested that many times and you keep rejecting it. With your God it's strictly His way or the highway, no working things out, give in to His demands or else. That's no kind of marriage.

Its because you limit Him and what He does to the character in the book.


No, it' s YOU who insists that God's way is the only way. It's YOU who insists that I can't choose to just be left alone.

Phat writes:

Phat, having experienced several episodes that would confirm his longstanding belief that God is living and active outside of the book and that he discovered this revelation personally and not corporately, though the church also preaches such things.


I have had experiences too. I could use them to confirm my beliefs or I can be honest and use them to question my beliefs. I think honesty is better than confirmation bias.
