Yes, this is great. It's so easy to talk a Christian into a corner. It always seems to come down to 'you just have to have faith'. Well, no I don't 'just have to have faith', I want answers to my questions. Most can't do it.

Hi Beatrice, thanks for stopping by and commenting. Yes, it's easy to counterpoint the believers into a corner, and often we can do that by using their own Bible against their arguments. For every one point of view, the bible holds an opposing view. It's so full of contradictions.

And I agree. I want answers to my questions that can be supported with evidence, not simple feelings. Kids truly believe that Santa Claus exists, but that doesn't make him real. He is only real in the mind of the child. Gods are just characters people imagine to be real, but simply believing in these things don't make them real except to those believing.

Most Christians are smart enough to understand that all they have is "faith" and there is no scientific evidence for the existence of the entities they believe in.
