- We Christians
No, that’s disingenuous. You could prove it quite easily if there was any proof to be had. Absolute disproof isn’t possible.
For example. If I found a mouse in my house, I could prove I had mice. Or if I found mouse droppings, that would make me think I might have mice.
In the absence of those things, it’s a fairly safe bet that I don’t have mice. I have no reason to suspect that I might have mice, and an unshakable faith that I did, in fact, have mice despite having no evidence to back that up, would be somewhere between illogical and paranoid. Yet, I cannot prove that I don’t have mice.
Excellent. This thread has already progressed onto whether there is a God or not. I predict countless pages of pointless pontification.Posted 7 years ago
complaining Christianity is too inflexible, now complain Christianity is too flexible.
I was complaining that it was inconsistent. Thanks for backing me up. (-:

Of course it has, it’s a religion thread on STW. Anyone forcing you to read it?

pretty much all religious texts can be taken any way you want and for eg. can be used by both sides of a bloody conflict as proof that each side has their chosen deity’s backing.
True, but even if you took religion out of it these things would still happen there’d just be a different excuse. Fundamentalists can say whatever they like to me, sometimes I’ll debate with, sometimes not, but they’re not changing my mind.Posted 7 years agorkk01Member
Only problem is, you’re assuming your ‘belief’ that it’s a fairy story is correct …
Difference is, I’m open to any evidence you might have to the contrary.
Nooooooo! We’ve tried that before somewhere on here, most recently the Angry atheists thread… turns out you can’t prove or disprove God.
What drivel – the whole thing (bible) is fictional tosh – or at best a contradoctory, handed down, biased set of ramblings written a few hundred years after the “facts”.
OK – proving / disproving god – difficult. Proving a negative always is, so lets assume there is a tinsy, tinsy possibility that god = True.
However, irrespective of that metaphysical line of equiry turns out, the rest of it is fairy tale…
Where shall we start…
Ahh yes, I “remember” it well, ’twas in the late summer of my great, great, great, great, great grandfather’s years in Judea, A.D. 33, Saturday afternoon, about tea time….
Ohh what happened???
Well, these Romans, see, they got fed up with this bloke spouting on about having a second coming – so they nailed him to a bit of wood and hung him out to die. @cept he didn’t die – was seen down town 3 days later, had a big nosh up with his mates and then shot off up into the sky in a big flash
Wow – fab story, write it down. our kids might forget it if it’s passed down word of mouth like it has been for the last 400 years. I reckon that’ll be the next bestseller….

oh yeah no doubt about it. What you believe is probably very different to what every other Christian believes. Religion can be all things to all men. So it’s a bit dodgy you saying which are the most important bits of your religion.
And why I have a deep mistrust of any religious spokes person who purports to speak for his/her people/congregation.Posted 7 years agoAristotleMember
By all means be nice to people as far as practical -I try to be.
Don’t however do it because of the contents of a book of contradictory, many times interpreted, ancient text centred around the threat of eternal damnation.
How many other 2000+ year old manuals would you refer to for guidance?Posted 7 years agoMr WoppitMember
I have arrived at the conclusion that CallMeDave is a vapid fekwit who is making stuff up as he goes along and even then, doesn’t know what he’s talking about.Posted 7 years agolittlemisspandaMember
I can’t even believe he quoted the “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” – the cheek of him.
I hope he remembers this if one day he loses all his millions, becomes destitute, sick or disabled, and he has to live under the rules his own government made, go through the humiliation of an Atos assessment, experience the ineptitude of a Jobcentre, or stack shelves for free in a supermarket.
It’s not likely to happen of course, but I’d love for this guy to experience what it’s like not to be rich and privileged and have to muddle along with everyone else, and then he might understand that quote he is chucking around to try and make himself look good.
Being a Christian is more than just going to church or paying nonsense lip service to Bible quotes it’s about living your values, Jesus valued everyone no matter whether they were rich or poor, Cameron doesn’t give a monkeys about anyone who isn’t in his millionaires club.
Camels and eyes of needles anyone?
