This is a challenge to all christians to debate myself and others on the bible and the existence of your god.
I ask that everyone posting makes contributing posts to this thread and behaves with respect for each others opinions.
Here is my opening statement:
The Atheist Proposition is as follows:
"It may not be said that there is no god, it may be said that there is no reason to think there is a god."
Francis Collins (devout christian and head of the human genome project) suggests that there have been humans on earth for AT LEAST 100,000 years.
Richard Dawkins thinks it has been 200,000.. So, let's go with 100,000. If you are a Christian, knowing that man has been here for 100,000 years,
here is what you have to believe:
For 96,000 years humans have been born, expectation of life is about 25 years, many of these people die as infants and giving birth, microorganism
disease is rampant; volcanoes and earthquakes and other natural disasters are also devastating at this time. Between these humans fight begin over
land, women, tribalism, and food. So, for 96,000 years god and his angels watch with indifference as all this occurs. Then, around 4,000 years ago, he
decides to intervene in barbaric middle east where people are not intelligent and illiterate. And what better way of intervening that by human
sacrifice, plagues, mass murder, genocide, and all the other HORRIFIC stories of the old testament.
I have much more to say, and the argument only begins here, but i am going to stop here for now to give someone else the opportunity to get in on the
