I'd just like to run a question past the members of this board:


"If God is going to demand that we worship him then how responsible is God for demonstrating to us that he really exists?"

I think your posts are OFTEN over the top anti-religion.

But this is a very fair question.

if you are saying that God makes demands, then you are already acknowledging that God exists.

again i will state, it is not reasonable or credible to claim that views which differ from your own views are labeled "lies" and "dishonesty."

No.

I can have one opinion about something religious as an atheist.
If you're going to insist that god exists, then I will have to change my opinion.

the post i responded to (post #51) put forth the premise that "god demands worship." In that scenario, the person is already
acknowledging the existence of god.

No. The concept of God is not the same thing as the actual entity, God.

if a person can not distinguish between comic books and divinity, then they have nothing of substance to contribute to a discussion about divinity. they lack the comprehension to participate in such a conversation.
