You should probably know that I have reasons to believe that intellect is fundamental to our existence.
I'm genuinely pleased to hear that. Keep going.

Only one "attempt" from one theist so far. I mean, there are supposed to be others.

Is this similar to those memes circulating Atheist Facebook pages about how 20,000 children have cancer and one million people could pray one million times for god to heal them, and 20,000 children will still have cancer? Either way it's a compelling meme.

RE: Holding an empty bucket
One of PJ's big regrets was that he had a group seeking a debate in public between him and Hitchens. But alas, this was not to be. This thread touches another of the Hitchens straw men. There are millions of Christians in America alone who doubt or outright disbelieve the miraculous happenings in the Bible but love and adore Jesus as a moral authority, a great teacher, and divine. Less than 1% of the Bible text records miracles. Without them, one can still find the magnificent teachings and love of Jesus Christ. It does not require MODERN miracles to read the Bible and desire to reach out toward God/respond to God.

Of course it does, unless you're approaching this from a "faith requires no proof, or modern miracles" angle. Which is true, but why have faith? Also it begs the question: doesn't god's nature stay consistent? If miracles were allowed then, so that the bible could be written and faith established for some, why not now?

None that are rational. If there were good reasons you would have presented them already.
