believe nor disbelieve in 'god'. It would be pointless to
do either one, as there is no way to verify the belief.
There are some of us Christians who dismiss most of the Old Testament and just stick to the gospels. (red letter Christians) Jesus is very different from the alleged 'god' of the Old Testament.
Some of the "god bashers" on here stretch the truth and make it appear as though they have Christians knocking down their door trying to make them convert.
Get over yourself because nobody cares whether or not you subscribe to religion..
Obsessing about 'God' Pisses me Off

Yes it can, he stated that he does not know... Do you read that as disbelievement?
I disbelieve the tooth-fairy, Santa Claus an many other things but at the same time there is plenty of things that I just do not know, some I'm comfortable of not knowing, some I do not need to know or I simply accept my inability to ever know (like my concept of God).
I get that you can be open to the idea of there being a God, but that also means that you do not yet believe that there is a God.

Can I ask you to answer most truthfully a hypothetical situation. Imagine you're hooked into a lie detector. Imagine for the sake of argument this lie detector actually works Now you get asked the question. Do you believe God exists. Yes or no. Imagine you reply with 'no'. Honestly what do you think the detector would read?
a pick'n'mix christian.
you are the worst.
I never read of Jesus aggressively pushing religion. He just walked around healing people and spreading good will. I guess they improved on his method after he died. It has got a lot better than before though, at least we have a right to freedom of religion in this country. We could still be forced to believe in god or die like they used to do.
I believe in god but I do not push my beliefs on others. I have no clue what god is, some sort of consciousness I suppose. I really don't care, I like to believe something truthful and good exists, I won't find that believing in society. I do not see that in science either.
stop getting in peoples faces when they're in hospital,
The thing about Christianity in particular that kills me, is
that one might reasonably compare Christianity to the
mafia -- except of course Christianity has done far far
more evil than the Mafia ever has...
