Positive Truth Claim
GIA writes:

Religions are fairy tales for adults. If this is a truth, we should encourage Christianity and Islam as well as all other religions to grow up and return to their better past of seeking God instead of idol worshiping Yahweh and Allah. Both of them are mythical and manmade Gods.

This belief needs to be supported. You are stating Dennetts (and others) philosophy as if it is truth. Please support the assertion.

Re: Positive Truth Claim
I mean't no disrespect, but will stand my ground on challenging you for two reasons.

First, we are in a Faith & Belief topic. A member can start a topic about pink unicorns, for all I care...as long as they state that it is a belief and not a fact. the same rules apply to atheists and gnostics.

The second reason i hesitate to promote your topic is because all of your topics are essentially the same thing.

I suppose I'm asking you what you expect your readers to do? What sort of argument do you intend to make--in a Faith/belief context?
