Still no evidence for your nature did it claim
Because you are ignorant of philosophy and logic.When a person states that no evidence for gods exists, why would you ask the inane question:- "...and your evidence is...?" ?
Now you shift the burden - its not up to me to rebut a claim that has not been evidentially proven to be true - its up to the uneducated atheist to live up to their burden of proof.Those who say there is no evidence for any gods will continue to affirm that fact until evidence to the contrary is provided.
Temujin claims nature caused the universe and life to begin - where is the evidence?You might have had some experiences batting a swarm of tiny insects from your head especially at dusk. If this rings true, then you’ve probably had an encounter with midges. Of a truth, these insects are small. However, their size does not make them less annoying. While some midges constitute...www.themosquitocompany.co.uk
Well, since you don't actually want to know the truth, your opinion is immaterial.You have not. You have repeatedly failed to do so, despite repeated requests.
Then you quit too soon.Done that. If that's a description of your 'method', then it's equally a description of what I've - and many others - have done.
Pity. That however doesn't mean that he's not real/knowable.Me too. Got zilch.
The only way to know YHVH is to do what Jesus said.I will. I always believe what is evidenced.
And yet you got zilch.As am I.
It's only irrelevant to people who don't want to know the truth.That's nice. Completely irrelevant, but nice. I suppose.
Oh, I read it.Considering that you clearly don't like reading what I've stated, I'd say that it's definitely a you thing, and it has nothing to do with the bible.
That depends entirely on how much whiskey you continue to smoke.You said:
My question is: does that include you?
So, your ideas, being conceptual, are entirely about your own imagination. And due to their being about your own beliefs and assumptions, they have absolutely no basis in reality.You're kind of correct.
I've been sharing ideas, which are conceptual in nature -similar to your Jesus.
Clearly you do.The difference is that I don't pretend that my ideas exist outside of my mind -which is how they are different from your Jesus.
Ad hominem, unsupported, false.Well, since you don't actually want to know the truth, your opinion is immaterial.4
Your ongoing rants on the forum bely a collection of underlying biases, and preconceptions about him, and what it means to follow Jesus.Then you quit too soon.
Your ongoing rants on the forum bely a collection of underlying biases, and preconceptions about him, and what it means to follow Jesus.
It's not as uncommon as one might think.
The genuinely important thing is to release your biases and preconceptions.
Been there, done that, got zilch.I think what made it easier for me is that I despised religion and wanted nothing to do with it. Hence, the second question I'd asked him-- is this Jesus stuff I'm hearing about for real or just another pile of religious bs.
More unsupported nonsense.Something else that I've seen through the years...
Some people simply don't want anything to do with him, regardless. They like the lifestyles they have, and have no interest whatsoever in changing their lives.
The sad thing is that the consequences are exactly what they don't want.
Nor do your claims mean that he is real/knowable.Pity. That however doesn't mean that he's not real/knowable.
Ad hominem, unsupported, false.Based on your ongoing rants here, I'd say that you didn't actually want to know him.
Done it. Got nothing.The only way to know YHVH is to do what Jesus said.
Nope. Your interpretation of a thousands-of-years old book by unknown authors claiming that a deity who cannot be shown to exist has made it quite clear. And it's wrong.He's made it quite clear that in the day you seek him with a whole heart, in THAT day he will be found by you.
Just as we all have a few dozen questions about what it is we need to do.And yet you got zilch.
That leaves me with a few dozen questions about what it is that you done.
No, it's irrelevant to this discussion, just as it would be if I posted some spiel about a person 'converting' from Christianity to atheism.It's only irrelevant to people who don't want to know the truth.
Just as I read all of your posts to me.Oh, I read it.
Based entirely on reality, it's pretty clear that you are to blame for your failure to actually communicate with atheists.Based entirely on what the bible says, it's pretty clear that you are to blame for your own choices.
That is what your imagination, and probably the imaginations of your fellow atheists are telling you.Yeah, that's nice but doesn't work unless one has prior belief in Jesus.
You would know.Also, the potential for self-fulfillment and confirmation bias is pretty high with such a method.
Just because thoughts run through my mind doesn't mean that I grab a hold of them and cling to them.Surely you've thought that through.
So, you think that is how it works?Its not unlike a person calling a plumber because they have a leak and the plumber just tells them to believe they don't have a leak and to do what Jesus said to do.
And yet you can't detail what you did.Yep, we've all done that.
I'm not the one in control or in charge.Well, that's the problem, see... You have such control over YHVH and you don't seem interested in granting access.
Perfect example of you excluding yourself from knowing YHVH and Jesus.Delusion apparently isn't restricted to the United States.
The article I read said he returned to his first love, Jesus Christ.
The Jesus in his imagination.
Funny, Jesus didn't mention anything about it; would a press release be too much to expect?
Quite right, there are no facts. My lack of belief is based on the lack of facts.That is what your imagination, and probably the imaginations of your fellow atheists are telling you.
What I find sad is that you think that this highly imaginative perspective you and they have is reality.
Your imaginations on this issue are erroneous, and have no basis in fact.
You would know.
As you believe that Jesus is not real, your belief is a self-fulfilling prophecy that you will not meet him, and your biases are confirming that for you.
I, and others who follow Jesus have not believed anything about him previously.
I simply asked him if he was real or not, and if this Jesus stuff I'd been hearing about was real or just another pile of religious bs.
I was stunned and caught off guard when he responded to me.
Then, as Richard Wurmbrand wrote about, his own experience too,
“God, I know surely that You do not exist. But if perchance You exist, which I contest, it is not my duty to believe in You; it is Your duty to reveal Yourself to me.”
He allowed God to do what God did.
Each of us who've come to him have done so because we were told about him and did not know.
So, we asked. We engaged him for ourselves.
We didn't let other people tell us how we should think.
Atheists are notorious for their own beliefs saying that what Jesus said is not real, not true, etc...
You've allowed your fellow atheists to convince you that they know better, and now you're wandering aimlessly around and trolling strangers of whom you know nothing, and claiming knowledge you do not possess, and saying that what they know is not real.
I'd say that you are bound by your own bias and preconceptions. Held as a slave, captive to them.
Just because thoughts run through my mind doesn't mean that I grab a hold of them and cling to them.
I was taught to test all things. To cling to that which is good and abhor those things that are evil.
So, you think that is how it works?
Biblical faith is calling the plumber, his coming out to figure out the problem, and then engaging your assistance to identify the problem, and then the plumber fixing the problem.
So, again, yet another imagination of yours. One based on your own bias and preconceptions which have no basis in fact.
And yet you can't detail what you did.
I'm not the one in control or in charge.
You're the one who keeps slandering him.
You're the only one who keeps excluding yourself from engaging him.
Perfect example of you excluding yourself from knowing YHVH and Jesus.
How is that clear?That depends entirely on how much whiskey you continue to smoke.
It's pretty clear that you have a lot of highly imaginative ideas that have nothing to do with reality,
