Re: This is my idea.
Do you love pond scum?

Do you pay attention to the desires of pond scum?

You certainly have the capability.

Re: Necessity of a Deity
You said "A Deity, as conceived in the minds of Men," so the answer to all your questions is the the deity will be exactly as you imagine that deity to be, and live at Foster's.

Re: This is my idea.
Is there any Biblical support for "the Evil One"?

Re: This is my idea.
But the evidence need only be sufficient to convince the individual.

Faith and honesty
There is faith, but there is also honesty. When new evidence is presented it must be considered.

Re: Necessity of a Deity
Remember, there was a lot to be learned at Fosters.

Myths have power.

But can we really conclude that its all in our imaginations? I am not convinced....


What does the evidence show?

Who here are the Bible Belivers?
Faith writes:

People here are "irked" by true Biblical Christianity, by believers in the Bible, by believers in demons, by conservatives and right wingers, so what?


But all the evidence here Faith shows that it is the Atheists and not the self-proclaimed "Bible Believers" that actually believe the Bible says what is really written in the stories and means what is really written in the stories.

Re: Who here are the Bible Belivers?
Phat writes:

Then you will ask me what the evidence shows and then I will again ask how you can claim to be a believer without some sort of internal confirmation and you will finally say that it is personal and not part of the topic.


Not quite. I will once again remind you that words actually have meanings and "belief" not only does not require confirmation it in fact requires that there is NOT confirmation. Belief confirmed becomes knowledge.

Re: Who here are the Bible Believers?
Phat writes:

Would you say that during the time of Jesus on earth, Christianity was more mystical, abstract, and undefined whereas when our buddy paul came along and sought to expand the franchise the belief statements, creeds, and articles of faith became knowledge and franchise by-laws rather than the mystical relationship which the earlier Christians had?


No Phat, I would not even consider saying stuff like that.
