    And I quote myself again.

    DOES NOBODY NOTICE THAT THIS WILL NEVER END? NO SIDE WINS. You're going to just keep going until the sun blows up or one of you become tired of arguing in circles and quit. [/b][/quote]
    Who cares? We're debating. Pardon us for having a discussion. :rolleyes:

    Alright, but when the debate finishes, tell me. I want to see who wins!And who has the most stamina to say "I'm right and you're wrong". :rolleyes: I'm an atheist and I don't believe in god, but come on! Pick your battles!

    Debates aren't about whether someone wins or loses. I don't see what your problem with us debating is. Who cares if it doesn't end? We're debating. Big deal.

    Oi. The pointlessness.

    You've got the ever-so stubborn atheists who don't believe in god against the ever-so stubborn christian/catholics who will defend their religion no matter what.

    This thread in the next few posts;
    "God doesn't exist and the bible is contradictory"
    "Yes he does and it isn't!"
    "No he doesn't and it is!"
    "Yes!"
    "Nuh-uh!"
    "The bible is false!"
    "It's not false!"
    "Yes it is!"
    "Nuh-uh!"
    "Yes it is!"

    Go on, continue with it, but the sheer pointlessness consumes me. And feel free to through your rolleyes smilies and subliminal messaging at me in other threads to your delight. I will no longer participate in either of these childish arguments, nor this thread. I warned you, oh well.

    Please tell me what other threads I'm "subliminally" attacking you in. I'd appreciate it.

    From what I understand, the Romans were occupying Jerusalem at the time. They would have killed the Jews for celebrating the birth of Jesus. So instead, they secretly celebrated it coinciding with the Roman Solstice Festival, or something to that affect, so they weren't persecuted.

    Just what I heard.

    So what? You're Atheist. Big deal. I'm Christian. I don't try to talk you in to Christianity, so don't force science down my throat and tell me that my God is not real. That's like me telling you that your beliefs are wrong and my God is the only one there. You don't even have a God or anything to believe in, how can you tell me my faith is wrong? To a point, it's downright insulting.

    Yeah, well, it's also insulting to us when you Christians tell us that we're wrong. You aren't someone who doesn't have a God, so how can you say that we're wrong?

    What's so wrong with believing there is something greater than you out there? Something infinate? Stop taking everything so concretely and believe, that's what faith is about.

    No one said anything about it being wrong. Even the person who wrote that article never said it was wrong. We just refuse to believe in it.

    Oh, you also said you're not trying to force Christianity down my throat. So, what exactly is commanding me to stop taking everything so concretely and believe doing? Sounds like forcing to me.

    I never forced Christianity. I might've suggested a frame of mind, but never anything else other than that. And why do you refuse to believe it? Because you think it's wrong

    No, I don't believe in it because it makes no sense. Don't assume things about me that you have no clue about. If I said I didn't believe in it because it was "wrong," then I would say that. I don't believe in it because of its many innaccuracies, contradictions and hypocrisies.

    So, again, don't put words in my mouth, because you have no idea what you're talking about when you assume things about me.

    Mark, you were right. I'm a lot less stessed watching the show than picking up a sword and debating. ^_^ :lol:

    I never assumed anything about you, I don't try to. It only makes logical sense to think that if someone doesn't believe in something they might find a wrong in the other person's belief.

    Well, to use your own words earlier in your thread (so it's in no way putting them into your mouth), that's what doesn't make sence to YOU, it makes perfect sense to us. But to be fair to your side. Of course you think it's correct. Why would you believe in something if you didn't think it was correct.

    Oh, yeah, I know. It doesn't make sense to me, so I refuse to believe in it. That's my argument. You do believe it makes sense, so you do believe in it. I see nothing wrong with that, but I will argue my point as to why I think it makes no sense. Never will I say that it's "wrong," but if I said that, know now that I didn't mean it was "wrong," just that I think it doesn't make any sense.

    Yep ^_^ and that's exactly why I"m done with this thread. Our opinions aren't going to change here. No one's going to be enlightened. I'll keep arguing my point as to why it makes sense to me, and you'll keep arguing yours as to why it makes sense to you. We won't be able to see each others reasoning fully because we're not the other person, it's completely subjective in that respect, and we'll both leave this thread with nothing gained or lost from it. Keep fighting the good, fight Will, I've had enough of debating for tonight.

    This may not be very usefull but I believe only what I see. Take the sun for instance, I can see the sun.. well except at night duh, therfore worshiping the sun seems more logical then worshiping a invisible man in the sky. (btw, George Carlin is a genious)
