Hey how did the blossam goodidiot prediction go? I had so much faith, I hope it went well.
Why can't they just use logic as something to believe in instead of an imaginary friend?
Here's a very interesting documentary about knowing by logical deduction and gnowing by intuition:
In this one-off documentary, David Malone looks at four brilliant mathematicians - Georg Cantor, Ludwig Boltzmann, Kurt Gödel and Alan Turing - whose genius has profoundly affected us, but which tragically drove them insane and eventually led to them all committing suicide. The film begins with Georg Cantor, the great mathematician whose work proved to be the foundation for much of the 20th-century mathematics. He believed he was God's messenger and was eventually driven insane trying to prove his theories of infinity.
It basically concludes that people can 'know truths' that cannot be proven by rational logical deduction.
Don't you think the Vatican should be using it's wealth to end human suffering and starvation? Rather than funding nice statues and buildings and pedophile rings?
Don't you honestly think, that since they are the "closest" to god, they should be doing his work most diligently?
Don't you think if there were such thing as an all knowing god, that he would take a moment to strike those down who use his name to further greedy, selfish agendas, or preach one thing one second, and molest little boys the next second?
Does he have any priorities or is he always on a lunch break?
Get a grip, your religion has more holes than a strainer, and they're all plain to see for anyone who isn't hopelessly brainwashed.
I agree, this is yet another bash Christianity thread.
Because Christian nations are the most powerful on earth people like to TRY to bring them down with their whacky theory's.
If these threads were really about religion they would go after the most popular
Most Popular World Religions
Christians - 2,116,909,552 (which includes 1,117,759,185 Roman Catholics, 372,586,395 Protestants, 221,746,920 Orthodox, and 81,865,869 Anglicans)
2) Muslims - 1,282,780,149
3) Hindus - 856,690,863
4) Buddhists - 381,610,979
5) Sikhs - 25,139,912
Jews - 14,826,102
And... Others - 814,146,396
b) Non-Religious - 801,898,746
c) Atheists - 152,128,701
The OP is nothing more than one of the many trolls that hang out here and try to incite people.
The transparency of this thread is laughable..

These are NOT theories.

Now, you speak of arrogance in your first posts conclusion, however if you look at the title of your thread and then decide to bring in a mathematical equation based on conjecture to create "proof" is incorrect and could be a tad hypocritical
It's better than bringing a fictional book filled with fictional characters as proof to any argument, as you fools normally do.

Why was it important enough to you to go to all this word to try and discredit - or rather - *prove* Jesus does not exist?
Isn’t that just the other side of the coin from the Christians trying to prove He did?
Now, the Christians have a reason for *spreading the word*.
Obedience to God, Love of mankind, love of their Jesus.
What’s your reason?
PS - Also, unless you wrote all the material in the post - would you be so kind as to put some links in to where you got the information?
No insult intended but - some people call your post(s) *brilliant* - I call them *cut paste* and it’s only right you give credit where it’s due.
