But if it's any consolation, I would warmly recommend your direction as very valuable, though with some patience.

sorry I assumed you knew what a Gideon NT (New Testament) was, yes that invisible Jesus mentioned in there, just like what Paul heard (in Acts9, John5) when he first believed that only said he was Jesus from invisibilty of whom he called Lord as I did of which no one can say or confess by their own natural power
OK, fair enough a voice in your heads says it's jesus the one in the Gideon NT and you choose to believe it,
So, what if the voice said it was Allah would you have believed it with equal conviction?

Did the Christians on this site have a secret meeting at a Church and agree to start attacking atheists and atheism? Seriously, the majority of active threads on the topic in the last 5 months were started by Christian theists attacking atheists, and the threads by atheists only seemed to have popped up in response.
Is there a more cogent conspiracy to suppress non-believers? I mean, the conspiracy is there. In fact, the stated goal of almost every religion is to convert, thus suppressing skepticism.

It's aggravating, it seems so obviously a disregard for the pursuit of truth. I don't debate on here for self-indulgence, I just try to preach a little cognitive/critical thinking. I believe you want the same things, and your rebuttals and arguments are much more elequent and consise than mine.
Btw, do you like my new avatar, or did you prefer the old one? I appreciate your critique!edit on 2/2/11 by awake_and_aware because: (no reason given)
no voice in head is something else addressed in the scriptures, I am talking an audible voice like what Paul heard as in an invisible man that was obviously raised from the dead as they and many declare
