Why do do many believers assume...


...that someone is an atheist because they never looked for god? Why assume anything about a non believer without taking the time to ask? Many many atheists are Diener believers, even former clergy members. How arrogant is it to assume that their belief was not genuine or "real" just because they no longer believe?

    Thank you for saying this. The person in question doesn't seem to understand polite discussion and the editing that goes along with posting on HP.

    I have watched them several times. It actually increases my faith in God! What a fury of nature only God can create! A man hardly 6 ft tall with a kilo or two of brain thinks he can intellectually analyze and declare God does not exist!

    That was a very smart guy. As far as them getting along just fine I'm not so sure. They still believe and practice ancient beliefs that keep them from learning thr truth and cost them billions in resources and centuries in progress.

    C.V.---It would seem that the epitome of arrogance is to believe that a god created the universe for the one who believes that he exists. The universe is estimate at 92 billion light years across. That is 92billionX6 trillion.
