Re: Evidence
Believing in God is all about Love. If every single believer loved every non-believer, the way that God loves us, there would be very few problems, and very few unbelievers. It is about love, and love is subjective.
Even if every believer in the world loved me, I still would not believe that mythology and mumbo-jumbo is true.
I am quite certain it wouldn't have any affect on any of the atheists I know. Religion is about love, it is about control and the need for people to have an explanation for the things they don't, or refuse to, understand.
P.S.

TYPO on my part
Religion is about love, it is about control and the need for people to have an explanation for the things they don't, or refuse to, understand.
Should have been
Religion is NOT about love

Re: Objective evidence for atheism
I think you are reading into the statement
It claims there is objective evidence "in favour of the possibility that gods may just be human inventions."
It does not say objective evidence saying gods do not exist. I think your conflicts with Straggler or getting in the way of your reasoning. He in no way states that he has objective evidence for the denial of a god, he has objective evidence that there is a strong possibility gods may be a a human invention. Very different.
Edited by Theodoric, : better first line

Re: RAZD and Bluegenes - Peanut Gallery
RAZD has some important things to say at times, but usually I skip over his pontificating with multi-color posts. I have been resorting to just reading Bluegenes replys in order to get the gist of the debate.

Re: one question
But that doesn't answer my question.
Would you accept the two as the only possible sources: Imagination and actual experience.
In other words, there is no other source but a human's imagination or a human's experience and testimony.
Why should I accept one claim rather than another?
Where is Oni asking you to accept one claim rather than another?
Simple question. The answer is a yes or a no. Very simple.

Re: Support
Before this forum goes bye bye I'd like to get this in.
Percy must be absolutely thrilled with making you an Admin after seeing this statement. I don't know how old you are but this site and its predecessor have probably been around longer than you have been an adult and is going to be around a lot longer after you whimper away with your tail between your legs.
The atheists here as well as the evolutionists all support eachother religiously(sorry).
Umm cause they rely on scientific evidence. It really is funny that you religious people consistently use the term religious as a pejorative. I wonder why that is.
I hope more theists/deists can start supporting eachother like the rest of the members here do.
You might as well as try to get all the Christian sects to agree. When what you "know" is based upon faith everyone is going to "know" something different.
