Mrs. Exp -- But the two of you are not speaking of the same reality.

Hmm... Then I'm not making myself clear enough. That and Ryan and I are being coy. ;)

In a nutshell (IF I'm reading you correctly) the Atheist is saying a Christian's beliefs are an attempt to screen out "the real world". The same applies conversely; a Christian is saying that an Atheist's beliefs are an attempt to screen out "the real world".

Am I tracking with you correctly Mrs. Exp?

Jeremy Crockett,
Absolutely and I think it is really that the Atheist is screening out the real world.

"Absolutely and I think it is really that the Atheist is screening out the real world."

Since I've yet to hear an atheist bang on about holy ghosts, 'afterlives' and all that supernatural silliness, I don't agree.

"That is the part you have screen out of reality."

Re-write that sentence properly, please.

Rubedo says:
"Repentance (metanoia, 'change of mind') involves a turning with contrition from sin to God; the repentant sinner is in the proper condition to accept the divine forgiveness." (F. F. Bruce. The Acts of the Apostles [Greek Text Commentary], London: Tyndale, 1952, p. 97.)

And if one does not believe in God?
Turning away from selfishness, conceit, and unkindness make a good start.

The inherent stupidity of this line of reasoning never fails to leave me gobsmacked.

S. Kessler says:
Oh, silly, Krinkle, thinking that logic will somehow be sensical to someone as brainwashed as MLC is of not just his own, but every last person who has ever lived's inherent badness. Silly boy.

Hi Craig -

Because Jesus wants us to remain in Him, and understand that the world will hate us because of it. (John 15:4-19)

I believe one who repents daily has a problem. That is why I asked why.

It's a two part problem. first, why should someone repent if their creator screwed up the design and knew it. Second, Of there is no supernatural beaties, there's no one to grovel before, so no reason to repent.

They should match reality--that's why I'm an atheist.

That is the part of your claimed 'reality' that believers can't provide evidence for.

A Customer says:
I'm sure she can. Still, i find it rather pathetic that there are some people who solely come to this forum to express a little daily hate at any Christians that happen walk by. I don't have to mention names, people know who they are. What a sad little life they must have.

MRA -- why should someone repent if their creator screwed up the design and knew it.

If that were the case, I would agree with you. Unfortunately God didn't screw up. We did.

MRA -- there's no one to grovel before, so no reason to repent.

You are deceived. You think you are a self-made man. You are not.
