If we take premise A that:
>A God is needed in order to have a absolute set of morals in a Chaotic universe.
Then i could argue that Atheism is trying to unwound society from its core beliefs and that without Society mankind will quickly devolve into a savage cannibalism instead of a relatively ordered and productive one.

Of course whether or not premise A is completely universal or historically accurate is up for debate.

You need a little dogma if you want to be worth anything, or else you'll constantly take the path of least resistance and then chose whatever validation you want. Working for values without basis is better than working for fluctuating values that conform to your lassitude.

Atheism is a mental disorder like homosexuality. Just like the teenage phase where due to hormones kids feel rebellious of their parents and teachers, atheism is also caused by those teenage hormones which never receded. It is an imbalance of chemical in your body which tricks your brain to think otherwise, which for you is always right and enlightining, which infact gave rise to all these "enlightened" maymays on the internet you talk about. Normal people can see how retarded you sound when you babble all these retarded nonsense without any factual evidence against it. Atheism is literally caused by the ignorance chemical which can be found in women's brain. If you take a looks at statistics, you will find that lots of women have faith in higher power even if they have this ignorance gene. Which supports my theory that if male have this gene active in them, they will be most likey serial killers or fags or fedora tippers. But I have no state-of-the-art facility to continue my research. Anyway, there are lots of resources on how hormones can change your mood, feelings, thinking and has a lasting effect in your life if left unchecked.

You literally are literally saying that you believe.

There isn't a way to believe something and not believe something. Belief is something you've got or you don't.

Either you believe in God and behave as if a deity is looking at you at all times, or you don't behave as such.

If you don't believe then you don't believe. It's as simple as that.

Having no opinion on X means that you don't believe X.

Everything that breathes knows their is a God.
Sin seperates man from God.
If you do not feed your spirit man, you feed the flesh and your flesh dominates the spirit, hence being reborn. Burying your flesh, born in the spirit.

Atheism denies all non material ideas, including the wind and thus atheists prefer to attack rather than reason or open their hearts. This could be due to sin, conviction, denial due to sin or indoctrination or just a love for the world.

I'm not going to argue with you OP, nor am I going to give you any evidences. Pick up a bible and read it with understanding and guidance from the Holy Spirit if you are indeed, a seeker of truth. We live in a supra-not super- supranatural dimension but if we are deniers you are merely batting for the other team are therefore impotent to any manifestations of experiences.

Try this if you are a student of research and truth but I warn you that even an intellectual won't go far without being born again. (It's free) It's also a free gift if you can read between the lines. You are in a dungeon, get out, set yourself free and break those locks. This is literal in the sense of dimensional realities.

http://www.theword.net/

If you are interested in the spiritual or supernatual aspect I suggest you seek out Dan Duval who has helped me personally.

Russ Dizdar, Firefall talk radio, Stan Deyo in the archives of according to the sciptures are good resources once you take the jump. Douglas Hamp's corrupting the image or age of deceit 2 by Gonz may also help you slide into thinking rationally about things if you are questioning and searching for a logical explanation to life itself and your purpose.

Unfortunately religion gives God a bad name and prevents you from understanding all these things I talk about. Sadly, man made religion could be the very reason you do not wish to convert.

Godspeed Anon. Praise Yeshua Hamashiach, a father who is pleading with you to return.

But you're still sure enough to follow it, trusting your memory, even though it could be faulty.

Skepticism, which tells us that all knowledge is subjective. In order to know something as an absolute truth, it would need to be objective knowledge, but since we cannot objectively percieve anything, such a thing is not possible.

A best guess isn't necessarily false. A subjective truth isn't necessarily wrong.

"Absolute truth doesn't exist" is most likely true. But I can't know for sure.

Between 100% true and 100% false, there's also the realm of "I don't really know, but I can make an educated guess."

There is no system that can prove its own axioms.

Systems can only establish validity (i.e. noncontradiction), not truth.

Go back to my speed limit analogy. How can you say it's "most likely" true if you don't have an absolute truth to compare it to? You can't say something is 99% unless you know what 100% is, otherwise it may as well be 0.099% - it's absurd.

>At Alexandria a commoner, whose eyes were well known to have wasted away ...fell at Vespasian's feet demanding with sobs a cure for his blindness, and imploring that the Emperor would deign to moisten his eyes and eyeballs with the spittle from his mouth... Vespasian .... did as the men desired him. Immediately the hand recovered its functions and daylight shone once more in the blind man's eyes. Those who were present still attest both miracles today, when there is nothing to gain by lying.

Tacitus, The Histories, 4.81

>Vespasian, the new emperor, having been raised unexpectedly from a low estate, wanted something which might clothe him with divine majesty and authority. This, likewise, was now added. A poor man who was blind, and another who was lame, came both together before him, when he was seated on the tribunal, imploring him to heal them, and saying that they were admonished in a dream by the god Serapis to seek his aid, who assured them that he would restore sight to the one by anointing his eyes with his spittle, and give strength to the leg of the other, if he vouchsafed but to touch it with his heel. At first he could scarcely believe that the thing would any how succeed, and therefore hesitated to venture on making the experiment. At length, however, by the advice of his friends, he made the attempt publicly, in the presence of the assembled multitudes, and it was crowned with success in both cases.

If you're standard is as low as performing miracles, why not voodoo?

Miracles cannot be conducted consecutive times nor are they supernatural. Most can be explained by natural ways with our current understandment but the ones where we do not yet know, we cannot say 'God did it'.

>>39710523
>How can you say it's "most likely" true if you don't have an absolute truth to compare it to?
It's been true every time so far. Of course, that hits the problem of induction, which is that induction is not possible.

But it still works. I can't know for sure, but it got me this far, hence I presume it'll continue to get me places.

In other words, I rate the likelyhood of something high if it's worked reliably in the past, because that has worked reliably in the past. I know it's circular reasoning, thank you very much. It still works.

>A girl had died just in the hour of her marriage, and the bridegroom was following her bier lamenting as was natural his marriage left unfulfilled, and the whole of Rome was mourning with him, for the maiden belonged to a consular family. Apollonius then witnessing their grief, said : "Put down the bier, for I will stay the tears that you are shedding for this maiden." And withal he asked what was her name. The crowd accordingly thought that he was about to deliver such an oration as is commonly delivered as much to grace the funeral as to stir up lamentation ; but he did nothing of the kind, but merely touching her and whispering in secret some spell over her, at once woke up the maiden from her seeming death ; and the girl spoke out loud, and returned to her father's house, just as Alcestis did when she was brought back to life by Hercules.

Philostratus, The Life of Apollonius of Tyana, 4.45

>.... the old woman had now begun to question the corpse in a somewhat louder voice. ....Then he suddenly collapsed and fell flat on his face. The old woman rolled the body over onto its back and persisted with her questions. Employing apparently more powerful spells of compulsion this time, she repeated her string of incantations into his ears, and, leaping, sword in hand, from fire to pit, from pit to fire, she succeeded in waking the dead man a second time and, once he was on his feet, began to put the same questions to him as before, forcing him to use speech as well as nods of the head to make his prophecy unambiguous.

Atheists claim that is no EVIDENCE of god, which is different

There's far more than one, even not touching different translations. But surely the church did well assembling the version you trust. Have faith! :^)

No, he was agnostic.

He believed that God was the laws of physics or something. More like a pantheist if you ask me.

That was a poem, he was being metaphorical

>>39710624
depends, in the case of Vespesian we have 2 different sources citing 2 different miracles

and thats vespesian alone, there are tons of miracles etc most regularly cited ones would be emperors and famous oracles

my point is your argument is invalid, that it was christians/jesus that did miracles and pagans din dun nuthing

pagan world was filled with miracles, just as christianity, hell go read early christians even the christians don't deny pagans can be wonderworkers they just state that those are the works of devil / unauthorized while their wonderworkers are blessed by god

>Miracles cannot be conducted consecutive times nor are they supernatural. Most can be explained by natural ways with our current understandment but the ones where we do not yet know, we cannot say 'God did it'.
Miracles break natural law, therefore showing divine intervention. You are not talking about miracles.

Just like everyone else whenever they talk about God

How can I prove anything to an atheist who denies knowledge, logic and all rational basis for proof?

>>39710568
Argument from ignorance. Your worldview is absurd. QED

>>39710572
In other words your worldview is based on circular reasoning which is a logical fallacy. And that's why atheism is incoherent.

>>39710611
Mockery again?

Wikipedia also says, and directly quoting Einstein
>We see a universe marvelously arranged, obeying certain laws, but we understand the laws only dimly. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that sways the constellations. I am fascinated by Spinoza's Pantheism. I admire even more his contributions to modern thought. Spinoza is the greatest of modern philosophers, because he is the first philosopher who deals with the soul and the body as one, not as two separate things.
He really liked Spinoza.

Nice strawman, but let's pretend that I'm a good little christian who accepts knowledge, logic and all rational basis for proof.

Now prove to me that the authority is trustworthy.

>Just like everyone else whenever they talk about God
you do realise, there are people that literally believe everything in the bible?

Saying something metaphorically doesn't mean it's true or they believe it.

here have a simle definition of metaphor:
>a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.

3k years ago: if god isnt real, how do you explain pox?
proofs about the existence of god= 0

today: if god isnt real, then what started the universe and evolution?
proofs about existence of god still = 0

Just wait another 50 years dude and it's likely you'll have your answers.
Science advances, theology is always the same shit. What it can do is just to parasitize scientific discoveries

>In other words your worldview is based on circular reasoning which is a logical fallacy.
The whole world is built on this circular reasoning. Our entire civilization, all of science, is built on the axiom "Induction works", this is the basis of empiricism. If you say atheism is incoherent due to this, then you also say science is.

>>39710632
Same way I know everything else I can't be wrong about. Revelation from God.

>>39710639
Amen brotha.
>>
>>39710760
God himself is a metaphor, there is no thing people point to or refer to as God. Everybody just uses the word as a metaphor for whatever they want.
>>
>>39710693
Christian miracle are the most accepted and least disputed miracles. Not even Muslims deny that Jesus was a prophet. I'm just saying that in most cases the events of a miracle are disputed while the events of christian miracles are in fact not.

You're saying that your knowledge is omniscient? That you're equal to god in knowledge? Your arrogance is reeking

How do you know that revelation from God isn't actually a deception from a demon?
