Tec, you are running in circles.
I am not certain how, but lets take a look.
First you say you have evidence in your life, well many people of every religion say the same line. So it is much more likely that people are putting the label of god on things like coincidence and happenstance than some god or gods having a hand in that tickle they get in their leg when they look at their baby or a sunset or finding a lost 100 dollar bill when it’s time to go to the assembly.
"Much more likely" is not proof either, you know.
In either case, we don't know what is much more likely. We can't see a very big picture, or very far ahead. We are limited in our perspective of the world. No doubt there are plenty of coincidences and good fortunes that are attributed to God of all religions. But so? It is also possible that many of these people know/sense that there is a creator, and that is why they are drawn to one, why they look to men or prophets or holy writings or religion to show them how to find and/or please this creator. Why they attribute every good thing to this creator.
Someone else's evidence is their business. It is between them and God. Not me, them, and God. My evidence and my life is my business.
Next you say that no one can prove that god does not exist.
I only said that in response to something that was said to me... questioning me if there was anything that could get me to question my faith in Christ and God. Prove to me that there is no Christ or God, then I would have to listen and disregard my faith and the evidence backing it. But no one can prove that. It was just in response. I don't use that to go around evangelizing.
You cannot prove that a tea pot is not orbiting the moon and there is as much evidence that that is real as that god is real.
No, there is NO evidence that a tea pot is orbiting the moon. There IS evidence of a creator. There are witness accounts - written and verbal/ancient and modern (you may dismiss them if you wish, but they are evidence). There is the fact that every culture and people have sought out and/or believed in something spiritual. God, gods, goddesses, animal spirits, etc.
These things are evidence that you can then choose to dismiss or accept.
Then there is personal evidence in my life - gifts of the spirit (peace, mildness, strength), prayers answered, understanding granted. That is for me... and perhaps another witness account that may be dismissed or accepted.
You say "your faith" Faith by definition is believing without evidence.
No, faith is believing without seeing. Without proof. Faith is the belief and hope for things to come, that we do not yet see or have. But it is not without evidence. It is not blind. What one person accepts as evidence, however, might not be the same as what another person accepts.
If you believe without evidence and you are going on faith which that is what you are doing than no one can argue with you.
If you have faith that there are aliens that are visiting the earth then no lack of evidence will change your mind.
Well, if I did think that, then I wouldn't have just thought it up out of the blue. There would have to be something there... some sort of evidence, even if it isn't accepted by most people.
In other words if you want to believe in something facts will never be a stumbling block. Its not living in reality but its your choice.
I want to believe in the truth. If you have a fact concerning the truth, then by all means, please share it.
But you are working around reality because every find of fact or discovery supports the conclusion you so hard try to disbelieve.
Like what fact or discovery?
No amount of facts that do not support you way of thinking will change your mind and the most trivial or insignificant fact that can be twisted to support your belief in the most weak manner is trumpeted by people like you as poof of the existence of god at the same time dismissing the mountain of solid evidence to the contrary.
Again, like what?
To be clear though, I have never spouted anything to be 'proof' of God. (and by proof, I assume you mean scientific proof... which we do not YET have)
So you are working around reality.
What is reality to you, then? How would you describe it?
But you can do that if you wish.
Thank you. As can you.
Jesus is some 2000 years late and either is a dead beat dad or nonexistent.
Since he never said when he would return (and specifically said he did not even know, himself), then I don't think he can be deemed late.
Peace to you,
