All that is standard ultra boring secular humanist befuddlement.Was the work of Einstein "a huge vast wasteland of befuddlement and confusion"? How about the work of Edison or Bertrand Russell? These great men accomplished great things without any Holy Spirits. You Christians are always denigrating human achievement and have a very dim view of people in general. It should then come as no surprise that so much harm has resulted from Christian faith. Most people are good most of the time, and they deserve respect and recognition. To libel them is to do the world a disservice.
Love? Is that your idea of love? To denigrate people's minds as "the puny intellect of fallen corrupted humans"? How can you love anybody with that kind of an attitude?
And it's no surprise that Christians command people to love their God. I don't see how anybody could love him otherwise.
Actually, many people do enjoy debating and discussing important issues. There's nothing wrong with that. If you are opposed to "endless squabbling and bickering," then you may wish to take that up with Jesus. He started all the trouble, after all.
Anyone who has spent a long time in Thread World will immediately
recognize each and every point you made as points that have been
made by you people millions of times over and over again and again.
After awhile it gets sufficiently boring to endlessly read the same old
stuff over and over again and again ~~ that some of us have stopped
doing that. Threads like this one is like those old black and white
western movies __ when you have seen one of them, you have seen
them all. There is nothing new here. In the final boil down so-called
"atheism" is as boring as watching paint dry. So? So you can spend your
life (or part of your life) here inside Thread World pecking away on your
keyboard hawking your "atheism" under the guise of a
pseudo-intellectualism that pretends to be a serious investigation to
seek the truth and I will spend most of my life out there actually helping
to build up worldwide Christendom, who now has over 1300 Christian
mega-churches with a weekly attendance of over 2000 and now has some
2.3 billion believers in the world (that we know about). My view is as long
as we can keep "atheists" occupied here inside Thread World and keep them
OUT of Real World, then that's a good thing so I encourage you to start many
threads -- keep it going.
