If I had a friend

    If I had a friend, of which I could not prove the existence of, how would I look to the modern person?

    Probably crazy.

    Is there a purpose to this thread other than to insult religious people?

      I'm just pointing out how I would appear, if I had a friend I couldn't prove the existence of. Whatever insult you percieve, I will assure that you are are only insulted by your own misconception. I never outright insulted theists, just made a query, using myself as an example.

        ROFLMAO.  Pull the other one... it's got bells on it.

        You are stirring the pot using a tiresome comparison that has been used a thousand times in this forum alone.  If you like you can look around and innocently pretend that your statement isn't intentionally inflamatory if you like but I'm not buying it.

        You want to argue.  There's nothing wrong with that I guess but don't try to pass it off as some sort of philosophical debate.  I'm just asking that you do something a bit more creative... maybe along the lines of "All theists should be slapped with wilted bits of Spinach"

        And no... you don't insult me.  You bore me.

          Thank you for the compliment.

          If reason cannot be shown through stupid little examples, such as the one above, then the problem is with the theist. If I'm absolutely wrong, then the problem is mine.

          Evidently I'd like to discuss it, otherwise I would not have brought it up.
