RE: Introduce Yourself HERE!
Hello! I'm a 20 year old man from California. I became a skeptic at the age of 15 and an open atheist at the age of 17. I was raised Catholic and started to question religion after having to attend the funeral of my close friend that passed away of leukemia at the age of 15. There seemed to be no answer that religion could offer that justified her death. At that time I had realized that there couldn't be a god. At the age of 17, I openly renounced my faith in god and the holy spirit to my family. Since then, I've found more comfort grasping reality, logic, and rational reasoning. Thank you for letting me be apart of this awesome forum!

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able, and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God. – Epicurus

Hey homeys,

My name is Mark Dreher.

A very famous person, in some circles.

But, you don't know me from Adam.

I'm sure.

So let's fix that.

No?

Love,

Mark Dreher

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Oh gosh, you don't want to know, if you are a real atheist.

I am someone, who could convince you, that God is real.

Yikes.

(but with love, you know.)

Hey Hafnof,

What is it that you would like me to do?

"Prove to you that God is real"

Through a published article huh?

OK, no problamo.

I don't know if they allow links, for newbies.

But, I do have one, and it is my own.

There you go.

No no my dear.

To find me on Google, use the keywords "mark dreher bible".

5.5 million hits.

Most of them, actually about me.

Holy shit.

My question was simply "this Mark Dreher?", but with your answer I think I can move onto my next query: Are you the new forum troll, uninterested in anything about the sound of your own voice... or do have anything interesting to say? If you're interested in behaving like a human being I'm sure you'll be welcome here Smile

I'd suggest launching into apologetics in a separate thread where it will get its due attention rather than dropping it into the generic introductions thread.

Oh my goodness.

Four insults, in two paragraphs.

A new record.

You have a talent.

You have a talent.

No, my dear, all that I care about, is that you know that God is real.

And

I can easily prove that.

I am a simple man.

Just doing what's right.

In the service

Of God.
