      Thank you but you will never understand. You have proved my point though

        And you obviously misunderstand my understanding.  smile

          Well, I can see this is not going to lead us anywhere. So let us stick to the primary point: Atheists being better citizens socially

            I cannot address that assumption as I'm agnostic, not atheistic.  So far. I've seen no evidence of any god or gods.  If there's one, then there has to be others IMHO.  But feel free to point out my error in thinking this, if you like.  smile

            Well Randy if there were others like God, He would no longer be God, but just a mere normal being. What makes God God is that He is unified into one and consist of Himself.

              And exactly how do you know this, Kyle? The Romans and Greeks had no problem thinking gods were different than ordinary human beings.  And some of those guys were fairly knowledgeable.  smile

                They were conditioned to think this way, and many of them denied and belief in God.

      Truth always hurts, doesn't it?

        Two extremes do not make a balance, yet their extreme helps me somewhat find a balance.

        A. I don't think it's necessarily true. And B, since you are a JW, I wouldn't classify you a rational Christian.

        Either way, it's no sweat. It's your opinion. smile

          I am no JW. I am opposed to them in many ways. I have no religion at all except in the broader sense. I believe in YHWH and Jesus but not within the confines of organized religions

    One must define better first.

      Gods Transcendence Dictates that We Cannot Fully Understand Him
      (yes, that is your wonderful hub and it defines my contention "better", thank you in deed)

        I do not quite understand your point, sir.

        1. thirdmillenium profile image61
          thirdmilleniumposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Atheists do not understand God's existence because they are reluctant to believe anything that can not be proved. On the other hand, you and I know God exists, only He has decreed that belief is a matter of faith. Atheists lack this understanding

            For that i completely agree, but sir I must submit this to you. I believe that reason and proof is a bridge that can carry any human to absolute faith in God.

              The pity is some can understand this but many can not

                That is a pity. It is that the veil or reason has covered their eyes.
