no - let's answer the question that was asked of you and not duck and dive to avoid it!
but the topic of the thread is not even that either - it is the prediction that there will be more aetheists than christians by 2038 - which may or
may not prove true, and which makes no mention of "aetheism taking over christians" at all - when you get it wrong you realy do a bang up job of
getting it wrong!
so why dose it take "MORE faith" to beleive evolution than to believe the bible?
I see. The thread is about Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038. To stay on topic, you want me to answer the question, "so why dose it take "MORE
faith" to beleive evolution than to believe the bible?"
It takes more faith to be an Atheist when all of quantum mechanics is explained in the Bible. To not see the connection denies the truth and does not
deny ignorance of the truth. The moto of the website is, "Deny Ignorance." My answers stated the case clearly. Any God that can show me the future,
demonstrate a mastery of light and physics, claim to only be about love, then demonstrated it by dying on a cross deserves my attention.
Beyond this, why does sin cause a debt? Sin is so fun. Isn't fun what life is all about? Show me the money. That's all that matters, right? As my
other answers have shown, truth is suffering for what is to be earned. This is giving forward instead of taking and paying later. In some cases, a
debt is good. We pay as we go and eventually show a positive balance. Giving always generates positive.
In mathematics, we can create a negative. Compare this to a piece of trash I throw in your yard. I just created one negative for you, as you need to
now do work to clean your yard. What if you decided, instead, to come beat me up. Now there is trash in your yard and you cause me pain. That's -2.
If you had picked up the trash, it would have been -1 +1=0. You could have even thrown it away and then come to my home and picked up my trash too.
Now, the world is all positive. I have been taken down by kindness and there is no trash in either yard.
We sin so much that none of our positive can pay our negative. This is our state as a thief in the wilderness. How do you cancel debt of magnitude?
Multiplication. Two negatives multiplied create a positive. This is where Christ comes in for the world.
"Consider this example: In mathematics, if you owe three people $10, then you are negative $30 (3 X -10 = $-30). If the lenders then say, "We forgive
you for this debt because we love you," then you are free from that debt by another negative. You have just had three subtractions of -10, making you
three positives of $10 (-3 X -$10). Your debt is -30 + 30 = Zero. Jesus died a horrible death to pay our debt, walking us back to a positive value.
Our sin and Jesus death is a positive for us all. Giving creates reward. It's the only way to have peace in the world. It's called love.
Beat that with Atheism.
