Do you know what "facts" are?
What a typically condescending question! That being said, yes I know what a fact is, especially in a historical context. Do you?
And others beleived it so it must be a fact? I don't think that's makes anything a fact as you know is proven by 6 million JW's
That is not what I said. Nice try, though.
And I am not proselytizing, I have nothing to offer you.
I knew that from the get go, I am glad that you have just realized that.
I am subtly trying to point out that is exactly what you are doing.
What exactly am I doing? Other than pointing out the fallacies in your arguements.
I just wish you and others would stop making me feel like I am missing out on something.
Sure, no problem with that. Of course you and others like you would have quit making me and others like me feel like we are less then intellectual for believing in Jesus.
The problem, is that whatever you wish to call yourself, free-thinker or open-minded or moral relativist, the fact is that the verything you point to Christians for being, intolerant, narrow-minded, etc. the same arguement can be made for you and people that think like you.
The fact is that it is human nature to show people a way that works for them, eg. every self-help book ever published. The real issue is that Christianity says that the problem is us, and that the solution is outside of us. This is something that people don't like, and won't accept.
Now if this is something that makes you feel bad, then there's a very simple solution. Don't involve yourself. I restrain myself on a daily basis from various threads. Either way the choice is really yours.
