why bother with truth huh...
Well lets see I will probably spend about $800 on a class that will tell me something I already know. Well already used more logic than I would learn from this class.
Then why are there 50 ways to prove God to be fake and not one way that proves him to be real.
Simply stated, a person would have to be omniscient and omnipresent to be able to say "there is no God" from his own pool of knowledge. Only someone capable of being in all places at the same time -- with a perfect knowledge of all that is in the universe -- can make such a statement based on the facts. In other words, a person would have to be God to say there is no God. Hence, the assertion is logically indefensible.
Asking the question "does God exist?" would be pointless. My answer would be "No, He doesn't," regardless of whether God truly exists or not. The question would be impossible to answer from an evidentiary standpoint simply because anything which God might have done (that is, any supernatural act which might serve as evidence for His existence) would have to be explained away in terms of natural causes, not because we know what those natural causes could possibly be, but simply because a supernatural God is not allowed to exist!
Dr. Richard Lewontin, the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology at Harvard University, put it like this: "It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counterintuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door" (Richard Lewontin, "Billions and Billions of Demons," New York Review of Books, January 9, 1997, p. 28).
Originally posted by whitesatanIf God is Yahweh or whatever you are calling him to be now. Then you have proven my point. A person can't be called something different every time you talk about him. If so then the person isn't real or the person changes every time he is talked about.

Dude you must not read my reply because I said you can have all the names you want but only one identity. Many people have said God has many identities. You can't seem to grasp that. You can call God whatever you want. He however can only have one idea.
Seriously dude get a cat scan, something must be wrong if you still can't grasp that.
I feel sorry for you. You may soon realize God is imaginary.

Core90 you are on pluto and everyone else is on planet earth. That is how far wrong you are. You guys say that God has multiple identities. You can be known by as many names as you want. You however only have one identity. You say God has many identities. How can a person of many identities be one person. It doesn't seem very possible to me. You have one identity.
