The Claim of things Supernatural SHOULD require extraordinary evidence to back them . . . otherwise why would a skeptical person align mere stories to "Truth" . . . Do you require any evidence to anyone claiming the validity of the existence of Thor, Zeus or Osiris? . . . you would most likely consider … Read more

It makes no difference WHICH God you are referring to . . . that your particular … Read more

No I am not . . . you are saying YOUR particular God concept bestows "Real Faith" while other religious God Concepts do not.

Saddest of untruths – “It might help to you to know that DM is an "ex-Catholic." – Never confirmed, and at age 10 "born again" into a nondenominational church when choosing to live with my mother instead of my father after divorce . . .
