I hate to reiterate this but you just aren't getting it.
All faiths, beliefs, and creeds, believe that they are right. If there was any significant doubt it would not be a belief. So to ask why we believe we
are right is an incredibly stupid question.
If you want to discus Religions hellbent on being right I've never met a faith more zealous than the atheist, all of your kind just have to show
us were wrong, and you know the best part. The bible says time and time again that the faithful will be persecuted for there beliefs. So every time
someone starts in on us, and tries desperately to prove us wrong, It only confirms to us that were right.
You will never be able to shake pure faith, deal with it.

Yeah,, you got that right and like the thread creator as said with the "us" "we" and the dig made about the imaginary friend in our pockets etc.
The most compelling argument for the Christian is that we have all argued splitting hairs about Religion but we generally agree with getting along and
not getting so vitriolic with each other. Atheism on the other hand is the most INTOLERANT of all religions. Atheism has to face the postulate that
we who believe in God are either knowingly involved in a conspiracy of guargantuan size and complexity to ,,, Oh,,, I dunno for the hell of it I
guess,, believe in something we KNOW doesn't exist if in fact it doesn't then that would prove this conspiracy is currently going on because we just
like to trip people out like that.
OR perhaps that belief is something we Christians all identify with as we have all experienced God and that he is in fact real but just not to the
Atheists. Conventional wisdom dictates that they should quit telling us to not believe in something we have already had proven to us and start
asking us how they can find out too.
I think it scares them sort of like Spocks Brother in that one Star Treck movie that was in Theatres where he took over the enterprise to go meet God
and he had to get the all to agree to "share their pain" lol
Kirk kept saying,, "I like my pain,, I want to keep my pain "
As much as I would like to say,, yeah what we all share, this belief in God and that it is much more then you can understand being that it isn't a
natural phenomena but supernatural, is all a scam. That we all meet at the global christians for the conspiracy to drive atheist's nuts meeting in
switzerland last year along with the bilderbergers.
I mean I would love to say that,, but I can't,,
God is real,,
