What is the point of all of this? Are we debating for the sake of the debate or do we actually think religious people are going to change their minds? Are we debating because it is fun? I hope so, because they are not going to be persuaded by any amount of logic or reason that all gods are imaginary. They don’t need proof to believe and they see that as a virtue. I was a Christian once, but I no longer understand how this faith thing works. We are born with five senses. Faith demands that we ignore them and adopt a different “reality”, one we can not see or touch, taste or smell, one we need to “feel” with our “hearts”. What does that even mean? Anybody can make up an imaginary world and claim it is real. When a single person, or small group do this they are labeled crazy or called a cult, and rightly so. What is the difference between them and the major world religions? Size? If it is size, how many people need to believe something before it is true?
Anyway, my point is this: what is the point in all this arguing? Nobody is really listening. Atheists because they don’t feel a need to believe unprovable things and the religious because they have been trained to believe without proof.
