A couple/few comments only... then I'm out (may you all have peace!), because the questions originally asked (and so prompting my previous comments) have been responded to, so there's really no more point.
I don't need to know what your beliefs are, unless we are trying to come to and understanding
Which was the point of the OP, dear Jay (peace to you!)... and so why some commented as to their beliefs as they did.
I want to see how you communicate with others, without using the "christ tag" every interaction.
But God/"Yahweh" (and so, for some of us, Christ) was the subject, dear one. How can you ask people to tell you what/how they believe in something... without having them refer to that something... or what it (or who) it is that prompts such belief? ????
If you actually want to understand what the theory of Evolution "would have you believe" . . . you need to divest your mind of this widely held and constantly promulgated fallacy. Only when you can examine the evidence without the inherent bias of this preconception will you ever begin to understand it.
Very interesting statement, dear Size (peace to you, as well!)... and quite ironic, I have to say. Because MANY atheists... and particularly many here who received their indoctrination as to "God" from religion... and particularly the WTBTS... rely a great deal on what religion (and the WTBTS) "would have you believe." Yet, you are unable to divest YOUR minds of MANY "widely held and constantly promulgated" fallacies. Because of this, you are as unable to examine the evidence* as to these things yourselves... "without [the] inherent bias" of your OWN preconceptions... and so do not (yet) understand what WE share with YOU. No difference, dear one... truly.
Finally, dear PSacto... the greatest of love and peace to you, dear one. I wish I could say that I ONLY came to know God through love; however, that would not be true in my case. I my case, I came to know Him... through His Son, the Holy One of Israel, JAHESHUA, His Chosen One (MischaJah). And through THAT One... I came to know love. And that God... IS love.
Again, peace to you all!
A slave of Christ,
