How right you are. The Veridican Gospel of Jesus Christ is now available online for free (you still have to buy the Kindle or Paperback version). Right now, you can view the .html version at http://veridican.org.

There will be a .pdf version as well, but I haven't got it up there yet.

Have a look. Yes

All the members will have bleach-blond hair, saline psuedo-boobs, veneered teeth, and $2000-dollar suits until the only thing that can be said for being a Christian is "We all televangelists now!"
Funny stuff

I feel like I will explode and all that will be left is a great and brilliant light.
Kinda like Islamist suicide bombers?

Your ideas don't scare me, the only reason I'd be scared of you is if you decide to "explode...into a great brilliant light" and take others with you.

No wonder He can't be found, where are you keeping Him hostage?

You certainly are entertaining in a Jack Nicholson The Shining sort of way.

What evidence, specifically?

What would depend on what you are asking evidence for.

Evidence against PersephoneK's particular ideology, or evidence against god itself?

I want the light within me to take as many with me as I can

You’ve had your whole fucking life to think things over. What goods a few more minutes going to do you now?

That just needs to be on a T-shirt. Yes

I really think Jack puts it quite well if you consider atheists as Wendy, and me as Jack going after the atheist mindset. I'm not sure what the bat represents. Unsure

I'm asking for the particular evidence that PersephoneK referred to when he said "it was a relatively short path to total unbelief. The evidence was just too strong".

I'm not going to let you turn this around on me.
Someone said "evidence" and I asked what it was. As simple as that.

The bat could represent reason.

You get bonked on the head with reason but all it does is make you angrier. The backfire effect predicts that if you present some people with evidence that contradicts their strongly held beliefs it will reinforce their existing opinions, rather than changing them. - Brendan Nyhan and Jason Reifler

The most dangerous place to stand is in between someone and what they want to believe.- Unknown


Anyway do try to keep your emotions in check and don't hurt anyone in your self-righteous quest.

BTW went to your site, read some of your responses on the threads including the one where you say "God destroys every physical form He creates. Everything is made to be destroyed eventually." Next thing I see happening is you'll ask God to make you a sword of His will. Yeah, The Shining analogy definitely applies.
