No, sorry. You are not understanding my point at all. I am not even endorsing the teleological argument at the moment. It is simply an example of a
logical argument for the existence of God that I knew you would have some issues with. It was only an example.
While looking through your comments, I kept seeing flawed premises and contradicting logic over and over again. But I'd answer your questions anyways
to be met with ten more.... ten more... ten more... then I came to back to the thread only to see two more novel-length comments back to back
addressed to me with many new arguments, all logically flawed in some way. Instead of wearing myself out and inducing a migraine with a conversation
that would never end, I wanted you to take a step back to contemplate your own logic.
This is just one example. You say that it is some psychological phenomenon that the longer a person believes in God, the more they feel God. You think
this means it's all in their head. Sorry but this is not logical. It would be like me saying the longer I know my best friend, the better I know him
and the closer we become. By your logic, my friend does not exist. Another example: due to God's infinite nature, He cannot create anything. Sorry
but that makes no sense and is a paradox of pantheism, if anything at all.
Instead of answering 20 more questions only to be met with ten more... ten more... ten more.... and breaking down everything in detail to show the
false assumptions and illogical premise, I gave you an example of the teleological argument (something I knew you would not agree with) to try to get
you to take a step back and actually examine your 'contradictions' yourself instead of killing myself over answering them all.

Sorry, Wolf. You don't have a leg to stand on accusing a Christian of being intolerant of your views without looking hypocritical. I think if you go
back and look at some of the posts you have been making to me in this thread as well as some of the jabs you made at me, my faith, and my Bible
yesterday in U2U, it seems really silly for you now to get upset with a Christian member who is criticizing your atheistic faith and then label them
'intolerant.' Something to think about.
I'm not judging you at all- I'm just very weary of seeing religious people ridiculed, insulted, and jabbed at left and right around here only to see
the 'persecuted atheist' card played when their views come under question.
Let's all try to play nice, is what I'm saying.
