Thank you but you will never understand. You have proved my point though
And you obviously misunderstand my understanding.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.

I've heard that atheists claim that the point of their existence is to leave the world in a better place. As we know, the world is never a better place. Why struggle through life, learn to love and then die? What's the point? Death makes a mockery of life then. If you are a...

Some people like to comfort themselves with the idea that if they get rid rid of horrible-old Christianity from the world, we will be left with nice, peaceful nihilism. I would like to point out that if you trample away Christianity, we won't be left with the unity of blissful non-belief, we will...

I just started a forum looking into the subject. It was great and polite but the discussion veered into all about people who believe in God and how that is fallacious.Here I hope we focus on the atheist. Can the atheist actually know something that is not empirical. For this discussion let us...

Does it make me close minded if I can't understand why people are atheists?I guess how is the better way to say it. I seriously question everything...like facts from history, ect...but for some reason Ive never questioned religion. I grew up in a Christian home, not a SUPER Christian home, but one...

A common religion debate is that religious people try to shove their beliefs down every ones' throats, which is unwanted, closed-minded, and hypocritical. Yet the most common closed-minded belief shoving type of people I know have invariably been Atheist. And, ironically, half the time...
