• If faith is belief without evidence, then why do people dispute this when it comes to the presence of God? Ex: Why do they try to prove?

    To have faith in God is, in essence to believe that He exists, without any evidence that He exists. So with this being the case, I am confused as to why some people refuse to just accept it for what it is, as opposed to trying to go a step further and find evidence that God does exist.

    To have faith in God is, in essence to believe that He exists, without any evidence that He exists. So with this being the case, I am confused as to why some people refuse to just accept it for what it is, as opposed to trying to go a step further and find evidence that God does exist. This is almost like a contradiction of the very idea of what God is, as if saying that a person of faith does not actually believe that He exists or has doubt, since they are trying to prove that he exists. It would be like me saying that I have faith that Santa Claus is real, but instead of just taking comfort in the fact that I believe it, I was concerned about the fact that other people didn't believe it, which suggests a measure of uncertainty on my part that he actually does exist. Furthermore, none of this changes what it is to have faith in God, Santa Claus, etc. But rather it does nothing but show that some people are lacking the faith that they claim to have in these people. There is nothing wrong with believing in God, without having any evidence that he exists, and if someone thinks that there is a problem with it then chances are that they are not truly a person of faith or religion, as opposed to one who is agnostic or something similar to it. Or either they misunderstand what it is to have faith, or they are not comfortable with it.

  • Why don't atheists understand the age of the universe doesn't prove the Bible wrong?

    Best answer: The Bible says the universe was created in a single day as there was a morning and an evening each day. Thus everything was created within six 24-hour periods which is of course completely wrong. It also places Adam in the Late Bronze Age (see Genesis 4:22) with full knowledge of plant and animal domestication... show more
    Best answer: The Bible says the universe was created in a single day as there was a morning and an evening each day. Thus everything was created within six 24-hour periods which is of course completely wrong.

    It also places Adam in the Late Bronze Age (see Genesis 4:22) with full knowledge of plant and animal domestication (Genesis 4:2).

    The 200,000 years of human activity before this point is entirely missing from Moses' story of creation. The reason is because oral and written records only went back to the dawn of agriculture. In order to go back further in time Moses would need the sciences of archaeology and anthropology - sciences that did not exist when Moses invented Genesis.

  • To end the sexual abuses in catholic church should not priests be allowed to marry?

    Knowing human nature I imagine there would be less abuse if they had a healthy outlet for sexual desires instead of allowing it to become pent up . Also in modern day world were marriage is declining it would serve as promoting marriage. So it would morally be a good move to promote marriage and reduce sexual abuses.

  • Atheists what makes you think there is no God? What completely rules the idea of there being one completely for you?

    Best answer: I wasn't born into a very religious family and never had much reason to think there was a god to begin with.

And if I count when I started studying different religions in high school as when I started seriously looking for a reason, I've been looking for almost 2 decades now. The odds seem pretty low that I'll ever find a convincing reason to believe.

    Best answer: America was definitely founded on an ethic of religious freedom and by Bible reading Christians, for the most part. Many missionaries worldwide have been American, the 10 Commandments were the foundation on which America's laws were built. Now America has removed God's Laws from public buildings, made prayer in schools illegal, has a so called statue of Satan erected, leads the world in pornographic manufacture and export, has armed forces riddled with gender confused kooks due to laws being enforced and especially FOR them by Obama. Has legalized murder by abortion, encouraged, promoted and actuated the destruction of the nuclear family! Your celebrities [most] promote lifestyles contrary to the Bible, push drug usage and swagger with arrogance as they curse, fornicate and promote NON Christian lifestyles! Sadly and tragically, America's Pigeons are coming home to roost, Yahweh will NOT continue turning a blind eye to end time America, a nation with "In God we trust" on her money while thumbing her nose at Him from a cesspool of crime, sin, drugs and perversion! God Has blessed America and soon He'll withdraw His blessings and PROTECTION!

  • Atheists, what is **THE** True definition of atheism?

    Best answer: From the Greek, "theo" is god. A theist is therefore one who believes in god. The opposite of that in Greek requires the addition of the letter "a" in front of the word. Therefore an atheist is a person that believes in no god or gods.
