"Not that I dont like your critique, it is just that you are using anthropomorphic reasoning to trash anthropomorphic construct. I mean maybe when in kiddie land do as the kiddies do but it is enough to juxtapose the universe with the make believe."

Creation and the Fall - Dogmatism

Let's assume for argument's sake that God created everything as Genesis states.  We shall consider Genesis to be perfectly accurate.  The problems encountered are far greater than incongruence with reality.If God has always existed, is all-good and is the origin of everything, I have some questions.  Where does evil come from?  If God is to be considered the origin of everything/everyone, then God somehow created evil.  If God is omniscient, he did so intentionally.  Further, if God does…See More

Hello Sean

Welcome to this world of rationality, truth and peace, where common sense and science lead to freethinking wisdom --- as you know as a non believer and freethinker like us.

We invite you to make good friends by joining the busy group "ORIGINS: Universe, Astronomy, Life, Earth, Humans, Religion, Gods, Atheism, Evolution, Darwin..." with 700 discussion topics and 3500 members.

Welcome, Sean! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends. You might also like Fishing and Other Outdoor Stuff, we don't have a skiing group.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically. As a young man you'll have to deal with the environment mess my generation is creating, all of your life.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
