I thought a long time at what a waste it would be to reply to your . . . well I would like to say "Well thought out retort" but I can't say "well thought out without audibly laughing" . . .
My description of Faith is from the original New Testament Greek . . … Read more
That you FEEL you have the Gift of Faith is indistinguishable from someone of a different religion saying THEY have Faith.
I ESPECIALLY love that the Greek word that Pistis derived it's epistemology from (peitho) is based off yet another religion and in particular the Greek Goddess of Persuasion of the SAME name. This Goddess … Read more
Thomas, all you are doing is trying to yet make ANOTHER claim of the Supernatural to warrant the validity of the Supernatural . . . you are literally in a circular fallacy in regards to YOUR particular belief system. 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.
Unless, of course, you accept that they would also say their particular God Concept ALSO bestows the Virtue of "Faith"?
I doubt that you would, yet people with different Gods get … Read more
LOL . . .

I like how your second post contains nothing worthy of note.
Just insults and badgering, which shows your true colors . . . I would find it sad if part or me wasn't laughing so much at the absurdity of it all . . .

"The "burden of proof" issue is the constant "red herring" in their comments." -
So, from that skeptic's standpoint why wouldn't you want Proof of a claim to the supernatural? Are you saying if I told you I could fly without the aid of technology you would simply believe? I'll pay you much more respect … Read more
Yes Tom . . . a position of belief different then yours . . . such a vicious attack . . . toward the Majority?
Not only are Atheists in the minority . . . but in many states they cannot hold public office . . .
