Yes, they have given information about their beliefs and their apparently experienced relationship, dealings, communication, etc with God. However, this 'evidence' is all subjective unless and until they can provide independent and, of course, objective, evidence which others can then use to repeat them independently.Quote
Many have given you evidence for their beliefs in God and the supernatural
The only thing 'natural' is the fact that their imaginations are taking place in the natural brain.Quote
(which is really just natural, but super!),
Why should I accept, without the required evidence, their assertions about any God? To do so would be a backward step as far as I'm concerned. What others choose to believe is up to them, but if they present these ideas as truths here on a message board, then they must expect them to be challenged. If they do not want such a challenge, there are innumerable religious websites where others will encourage their beliefs.Quote
but that has never been good enough for you,
You are entirely wrong here, but if you choose to believe your own assertions and think you know that that is what my motivations and feelings are, then I cannot stop you. It is, however, your own personal confirmation bias, and not a true statement about me.Quote
since you want it like it was a clinical thing, to be measured. By always being negative about it, you insinuate that believers are less intelligent than you, deluded, naive or maybe even liars, as are those many who have written excellent books about it.
You forget that I too was a firm believer in God for nearly half my life. The rest of that section of your post is an empty threat!Quote
You and your fellow atheists might think it is humorous that others can be so naive, but you have some truths coming to you sooner or later.
Of course I don't, but I do know the work of those who do and have every reason to listen to and defer to their scientific education, superior knowledge and experience.Quote
Ha, you think you understand the universe!!!
