Last count religious cults and denominations was round 1500, as made by the more conservative counters.

RE: "But I just KNOW!"
"Well then I just know that you're wrong. There, now we're at an impasse. We can't both be right. One of us is right and the other is wrong. So, show me that you're right. If you can't show it, you don't fucking know it."

They never have a valid answer for these questions.

Everyone has logic; attempt to appeal to it.


It's worked for me, I got an atheist friend to change his label to agnostic.

We're all agnostic because not a single one of us knows if a god exists or not.

If your atheist friend lacks a belief in deities, he is an atheist.

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.
