Probably not. Will you ever tire of trying to disprove them/us?

The thing about proving God to yourself is that you can ONLY prove God to yourself, if even that is possible. Personal revelation is by default, first person in nature. This is why organized religions are such a huge waste of time and resources.

Exactly.

At least looking4answers12 has shown that he really isn't. Big surprise, right?

Isn't actually looking for answers. You seem only to be interrogating atheists from a theistic standpoint. Your mind is made up; thus, you're not looking for answers, thinking you have found them. That's fine, but it gives the lie to your username.

I was using the generic "he", not knowing your actual gender. I don't think that matters here.

Why not a "generic" SHE?

I don't feel that I am "interogating", I'm sorry you have gotten that impression from me.

looking4answers seemed to make sense at the time I had to make up a name.

I did end up here while literally looking for answers to a question regarding religion.

Yes, my mind IS made up to the fact that God exists. But I still have plenty of questions regarding what God wants from us, how we should be interpreting the Bible, is one religion more "right" than another.

So if there is a question as to whether I am open minded or closed minded, or whether or not I am genuinely looking for answers, the answer to that would be yes and no. I AM looking for answers. Whether or not atheists are "correct" just doesn't happen to be one of the questions I am looking for answers on.

When I ask an atheist a question, my questions are generally genuine, I am kind of fascinated by people in general and how they come to the conclusions that they come to in life. I don't have some hidden agenda, when I ask a question. BUT, if one of the questions that I ask, happens to make someone think, that's great. If it doesn't, that's okay too.

Agreed, a simple google search has revealed him at these sites posting since he left (possibly temporarily left, he may be back, even if it isn't for a year or two, lol)

Can Science Reveal God? - Spiritual Forums

This is from a quick google search, if i bothered looking for more then a minute I'm sure I could find more.

The last time I tried to prove God to myself I ended up an atheist.

Thats what happened to me I started questioning, instead of just blindly believing everything they say is the absolute 100% truth and absolutely everybody and everything else is wrong.

Isn't really looking for answers. More posing hopefully tricky questions to instill doubt about everything we thought we knew in order to try to bamboozle unbelievers into faith. Good luck with that.
