Penn Always in the past considered you as an intellectual individual till I got to your exposure on your belief system.
Ever wondered what is beyond quasars or below subatomic levels or how to create nature.
Fact is, our span of knowledge is extremely limited. We are way too limited in our entire perception, to even scratch the surface on existence of God.
It is one thing to promote atheism and another being forced to survive under its ruling.
If you refuse God, why are you wasting so much of your time on bashing instead improving your knowledge and skills in atheism.If you love it so much then go and experience in real time true atheism in works like in north korea or other remaining communistic regimes. You have no clue what it means and how it feels. Yet you are trying to portray yourself as an expert.
The only thing we know for sure that each of us has to leave this planet one day. Everything else is unsure.
The biggest tragedy for atheists that at their very last day on this miraculous planet they all end up dressed up with no place to go.
Time is invaluable. Do you want your children suffocate in toxic environment or enjoy the beauty and creation of nature? Choice is yours.
In the case of nature you are welcome to Law of Creation or Origin, in search for unknown.
My belief is, we are all brought to this planet to prepare the best and most efficient future for next generation and leave this planet as the legacy.
I heard a great Josh Thomas quote that fits here and should be said as often as possible: "As an Atheist, having a Christian threaten me with hell is like having a hippy threaten to punch me in my aura."
Joe you believe in what Penn calls "God of the margins". He can only exist in the places that we can't observe, until someone proves otherwise. The margin is always shrinking.
You may want to read up on 'logical fallacies' before ranting at a skeptic. There's a lot we've heard before in what you've said that can be dismissed purely on bad logic.
Oh and I love prefacing it with the old "I used to think you were smart" thing. I used to think you were smart, until I found out I disagree with you about that one thing.
