God and Jesus are like Santa Claus for Adults.


well if you're praying fr Super Bowls and such I guess you could say so. May also be why that stuff seldom works. I try to stick to thngs that will make me a better person and for others as opposed to myself. works a lot better.

dUring a debate On Australian TV with a Catholic Cardinal, Dawkins admitted he could be called an agnostic because he can not prove that God exists. Yet he lead a crusade against those who promote a belief in God like the Cardinal. If you can not prove that God does not exist why are you so worry about it. He attack Catholic and conservative icons, like Mother Teressa, a belief in the Real presence, saying a wafer becoming God, and even in those Catholics saying the Birth controls do not work. These are not the majority of Catholic beliefs. He is setting up straw men to knock down rather than debate the important questions like Why are we here? To Dawkins this is an unimportant question. TO Catholics it is the important question I will try and answer question on what Catholic believe in another thread.

Stervox, Your film is a good summary of Christ teaching. It does not say that everything you ask for will be given. God will give you an answer but it may not be what you ask."Ask and you shall Receive"does not say you will receive exactly what you ask for. But what you shall receive will be good.
I do not know your team but I am sure God knows. Many will be praying for your team but others for an opposition team. God can give everybody who ask a win so he might give them something else.

see if Earl Weaver is up for a return and pull Boog out of his rib shack and back on a DH then realize that your team is actually in Indianapolis and you should have gone to see them.

somebody is going to be unhappy

Yeah that Dawkins, the one who used to rock.
I didn't know this was a shocker. Anyone who actually reads what he writes will already know he is an agnostic atheist. Sam Harris will admit that he cannot be absolutely certain their is no god. Christopher Hitchens had readily admitted this. Atheism often is a rejection of theistic claims rather than the assertion of the opposite.

a former poster did claim to have read his stuff and would never admit such a thing.

his history speaks for itself and the intent of this thread was to demonstrate how clueless the kid was that he did not even comprehend his namesake hero.

Meh.. I have little time for hero worshipers, this kid does appear to be making a few fatal logical errors. I don't want to say much as I am fairly ignorant of the poster you are speaking of.

Of course there is doubt. We all have doubts. None of us knows for a fact that god exists/doesn't exist. I believe that god exists. I have no sure knowledge, and neither does anyone else.

What is surprising is that an avowed atheist would admit he doesn't know. It's a lot like the Pope admitting he isn't sure that there is a god. That would be big news.
