Didn't you say you believed in God? Then don't you feel ashamed of false arguments to promote beliefs?
Do you now realize why there is a stereotype of religious people not being fond of science?
You're responsible for yourself, you should be ashamed of yourself, not others, unless you have taught them yourself.
Besides, in order to make an argument for God, you have to rebut with false arguments, it's a must.
Did I give an opinion about my stance on "science"???
Seems like you will just stick with your assumptions.
And what is the reason you want to know of my beliefs???
Or do you just want me to state a belief so you can try to find a hole in it and show me how stupid I am???
I have faith in my belief in God.
Is there a reason this belief offends you so much?

What exactly should I be ashamed of...my personal belief???
Have I made an argument for God??? Please quote me on that...I would love to see it.
I have stated my personal belief...haven't stated that it is true...I in fact stated that I can't "know" that any of it is true or not...it is simply my belief...and I have faith in that belief for my own personal self.
You are using assumptions as well...using a stereotype of religious people to make assumptions about me. How is that any better than a racist doing the same thing to a black person? Or a fundamentalist doing the same to a gay person?
If you have a specific comment of mine that you do not agree with and would like to argue...please quote it and we shall discuss. But if you are just going to continue with assumptions based off of your stereotypes...I have no interest really.
Well, I think you should ask why there is a hole in your belief first of all.
And you are demonstrating the topics intention of showing how religious people will not debate their beliefs regardless of what is said.
Is there a reason why people questioning the legitimacy God offends you?
The assumption that religious people generally aren't fond of evolution is self evident.
I wasn't stereotyping....i have been misunderstood, but one can stereotype Christians in that their faith shows they have a disregard for logic, for science; a belief without evidence. An Irrational belief.

And if he is as he says he is, he will forgive me. If he doesn't, then why would i want to worship a God like this whether he existed or not. I'm not a servant.
