Let me get this straight...
You got on welfare, then disability, and a social worker helped you...and you never applied for these things???
This apartment that you got...you never put your name on a list for subsidized housing??
I will say this...if no one ever filled out any welfare forms for you,
and magically you started getting welfare check...then you may have some evidence there...but I am willing to bet that, along with prayers, you or someone else filled out the proper paperwork to get it to happen.
Your example is a magical miracle that happens for millions of people who never bothered with the spell...
the spell part is rather useless.

Disbelief is a flawed belief? You're the one who believes in mysticism, not me. Rejection is not acceptance of something else. Your assertion that my disbelief is a "flawed belief" is actually a flawed belief of itself. I'll pack your English supplies for you if I have to. You're going to be late.
To an expert like me, that makes you appear very foolish, and Sam would agree with me.
did the voice in your head ask that without considering any situations that that thought may come up in? maybe you should start a thread about it if you're just attempting to go the crusade argument route, I suggest a little more in depth study starting with abortions (they exceed all wars in the last 2000 years from just 1920 by more than double) then maybe Bolshevik or Mao.. there are plenty more examples though

This kind of thing comes and goes in waves. Next week somebody will come on and post some topic claiming to "prove" Christianity to be a sham or something, as if that was a huge challenge to attack a belief. Of course belief doesn't have proof. That's why they call it a belief.
In either case, it's just a result of people feeling insecure about their own beliefs, and wanting some kind of affirmation from the other "side." It's all pretty pointless, really. Most people decide on their own to seek out and question what they believe, and are rarely swayed by direct arguments against them.
Atheists can't prove a negative. Religious people can't prove or even define "God." So it's all just entertainment.
Anyhow, you're focusing on only a small part of the spells I cast, a large bulk of my magic spells were dedicated to getting a perfect partner. And she is way better than expected, which was also defined.

A thread about "Christians attacking Atheists Beliefs" which is actually filled with posts from Atheists attacking Christians !!!!!!! < L O L
Things I have noticed in the last few years > >
Is it just me or is Atheism starting to attract all the dumb ones because it is trendy.
Real Atheists must cringe at some of the crap that is posted here by so called Atheists.
Atheists only attack Christians because they are a soft target.
You don't see them attacking the Muslims faith with as much zest, why is that ?.
Atheists will quote The God Delusion to avoid thinking of their own arguments, while mocking Christians for quoting the Bible in the same way.
Just like Christians, many exhibit very serious cases of a persecution complex, believing that Secret Societies are trying to eradicate them.
They constantly quote Nietzsche's "God Is Dead". Never mind that he was talking about slave morality rather than the actual entity. (It looked cool on that shirt at Hot Topic.)
They will Often dwell on religion more than theists, why is that ?.
Final note > >
Atheists are completely without morality and treat the rest of humanity like , whilst accusing theists of the same thing.
When called out on this, they will invariably justify their self-serving behavior by crying about religious persecution.

I'm sorry, I refuse to accept any claim of any deity without evidence. As I've said many times before, as others greater than me have said before me, any claim made without evidence can be rejected without evidence.

One thing is for certain, at least from my own POV. It's very tiring always defending the good name and infinitely intelligent spirit of Jesus Christ relative to the onslaught of attacks by atheism,
which conveniently employs a strawman God of the exoteric tradition,
in a concerted effort to make any and all Bible students and Christian believers, including gnostics (experiencial knowledge),
or mystics, look like absolute morons duped by the mindless brainwashing of a bunch of "fairy tales" cloaked in an iron fist of domination and submission.
And what's even more disheartening is that when we do this work, in the hopes of setting the record straight, we have to do so while imagining the atheists giggling,
in smug self-assurance thinking they've rendered the Bible and the ancient wisdom of all ages,
as nothing but an antiquated security blanket
- a tattered heap of mere rubbish, on the ash heap of human history, as we presumably march forth into a new age, as mere things,
or social animals at best,
imprisoned forever as subjective observers in a very constraining, and meaningless existence, and in a very harsh, cold, and entirely impersonal universe,
made of nothing but matter,
in a WYSIWIG (what you see is what you get) existence -
while calling US on this side of that fence of potential mutual understanding,
all manner of things, from morons, to ignorant, misinformed, unscientific, the list goes on, and on and on, with unrelenting ferocity and all manner of prejoratives.
So forgive me if I cannot help but be just a tiny bit elated, and even grateful, that, in the face of this onslaught, the truth remains, no longer buried, but to the contrary increasingly illuminated as a result of the debate and the conversation, left out in the open like a diamond in one's very own back yard.
We as Christians, and as scientifically minded people,
Meanwhile THEIR position OTOH is the easiest thing in the world - it's NOT FAIR!
