No, i didn't even imply that - you may have the evidence you need to warrant your belief in an omnipotent being.
The evidence that founds your belief structure may not be the evidence to convince me, or other Scientists. - Maybe they are the ignorant party
If this omnipotent DOES exist, i would still believe it to be malevolent, tyranous and capricious. I won't submit, and i won't respect. Bhudda would
sooner get my respect, and even then, reincarnation is a deceptive and evil premise to preach.
As i've stated before, the Andromeda Gallaxy is on a collision course with our own; an omnipotent being with human beings in mind would not have
designed this, it would not allow its creations to die out in pain and suffering. It's obvious this being does NOT intervene in human affairs; floods,
bacteria, disease are NOT "punishment" for an omnipotent being.
Through my studies of astronomy, logic and the scientific method - i cannot take any of these ancient scriptures seriously, maybe i missing something
though, i'm willing to keep an open-mind. I don't know many Atheists who study the history of the bible, and then later convert. It's normally the
opposite way around.
Even if i was interested in the scriptures, and i believed them to be credible, i would still be an agnostic atheist. I value the pursuit of truth; i
won't make any pressumptions before i have a conclusive conviction. I'll keep an open-mind until i can positively assert a belief structure. No
scientist, historian has so far produced any credible evidence pointing towards what you urge in regards to these ancient scriptures.
Like i said, because of the above, i can no longer debate with you, we are travelling in circles. I'm wasting your time.
