What don't you agree with?


The general meaning, or at least how I took it. Please, allow me:

How heartless can we be to challenge the established dogma! A group of people doubt something, something that has to do with religion.
How dare we ask questions of that which is to not be questioned!
How dare we demand evidence when non can be offered!
The rest of the world insults and/or disapproves of them. They are going against the flow.
Why not just stop thinking and blindly follow in step! They have a temptation to follow the belief.

This has more to do with the explanation, why they do not want to take part in it:

It's because we aren't heartless, we care very much about the truth.
That's why we ask questions and want reasonable answers to them.
Explanation.
It's why we demand evidence before we could ever accept a claim so extraordinary.
It's why we can't just stop thinking and blindly follow. They demand evidence before they accept the belief, whatever may it be. And that is why they do not follow.

Pardon my superficial explanation for it. Do you get it now?

And I dabble. I do hope to some day write my own book.

Oops, my bad:

I like your style. If you have more, please do send it to me. I enjoy this kind of poetry very much indeed, no matter if I am or I am not against it.

Actually no I'm not really clear. Are you saying you think atheists really are heartless and don't care about the true?

Why value blind faith? What is the virtue in following something without reason? If there is a reason to follow, that can be presented before believing. Asking for faith is asking for one to remain ignorant. No self respecting person should ever subject themselves to such a thing.

If God wants us to believe in him, he can respect us and tell us why. He can stop hiding and requiring us to purposefully believe in his existence without reason. By asking for our faith, he disrespects both parties.

No, I meant that my explanation was superficial.

I'm not going to answer right now because I'm not in the mood for a debate. Maybe later (prolly not).

^quit doing this. Stop jumping out of debates just because it isn't going your way. It's unprofessional, and it just makes your argument look weak. Please, let this thread die, it has served it's purpose.

I mean, I appreciate that you're trying to help me. I do, but it's not very important to me how I'm seen in here. Especially because I'm almost never on.

just keep on walking. you walked out and didn't want to think out it. no need for this after-rambling when the debate isn't finished.
people can learn from other people but only if they are willing to listen and think about it.
your not willing to think about it. so we have no need to tell you anything.
we dont really care that your close minded, it's just a pity we have spended time on you. whit the turnout that you dont want to think out it.
what a waste of time.

Is the truth important to you? Because believing something on faith or flimsy reasoning is no way to go about it.
