"But I just KNOW!"
I hear this from creationists all the time. This is usually the response I get when I ask them: "Why is it that your religion is right and all others are wrong? What proof do you have that it's your god and not the countless other gods from religions all over the world? Because what your were brought up to believe in could never be wrong, right? You do realize that there are people of other religions all over the world who are just as sure that they are right and you are wrong, don't you?"

They never have a valid answer for these questions.

Course they don't!

Everyone gets indoctrinated with their own brand of woo.

Yep! And I've never heard an answer from a creationist that has had any credibility. It's almost as though the idea of their religion being wrong is something that they can't comprehend. I think Richard Dawkins said it best when he said that pretty much everyone is at least 99% atheist, and that atheists simply go "one god further".

They "never" have a valid answer?

"I just know" that the Bible:

*has the record of a very loving, powerful speaker--Jesus

*fulfilled prophecy

*makes logical sense

*answered the questions I brought to it before my conversion

I would gently disagree that adherents of many of the other religions are as sure as fundamentalist Christians. I'd also say that with one god only, I'm expecting that one person/one route to heaven makes sense.

Thank you.

There your go again, (*in l'il Ronny Reagan speak*).
1. The gospels are a "record" of nothing. They are faith texts of believers.
2. Using prophesy in this way is invalid, as it was NEVER INTENDED as prediction. Please STOP THIS idiocy. No real scholar in the world buys into this "fulfilled prophesy" CRAP.
3. The Babble is the most illogical pile of garbage that exists.
4. If it answers your questions, you brought the wrong questions, or don't know how to even begin asking questions.

When are you going to stop trolling TTA ? That's the only question I bring to you.

I used to do this when I was younger. What's worse is, I realized that the biggest determining factor to a person's religion was where they were born, and I considered myself lucky to be born in a country that worships the correct God.

I had some really disturbing views when I was in college.

RE: "But I just KNOW!"
Four for four--excellent refutations, all. I am stopped in my tracks by the power and clarity of your logic and the winning, empirical evidence you've brought forth.
