If this is true, then come follow Jesus.On the contrary if god is in-fact real I most certainly do want to know that.
You've got this backwards.The problem is in demonstrating the claim that he is real.
We don't demonstrate God is real.
He demonstrates himself to us as real and knowable.
This is the whole point of biblical christianity.
We don't struggle to reach God, he became a man who demonstrated himself to us.
Ironic.What surprised me the most in the investigation was the utter lack of good evidence and or argument, it was so wishy-washy.
YHVH has been providing evidence of his existence to his people for millennia.
So, I suppose my question is whether you want the evidence he gives, or the evidence that you think there should be?
And if the latter, then did it ever occur to you that you've set the bar for evidence so low you'd not be able to recognize it when it comes.
Actually I am stating fact. You just demonstrated that you don't want the evidence YHVH gives, but the evidence of your own narcissism, biases and preconceptions.When you say "Jesus was clear....." you're not stating a fact, your quoting from the bible, and that is not the same thing.
Of course you don't see. You close your mind from the truth thus excluding yourself from learning.Re mechanics, carpenters, etc - I don't see how this analogy holds, it's not like a mechanic or carpenter doubts the underling principles of his trade, right?
Then you will have to decide what you want. The evidence YHVH gives or your myopic opinion of evidence.It's not that I'm quitting, it's that i'm still waiting for convincing evidence. You would think that something so simple would be apparent by now
