I'm still waiting for that bridge you sold me. Is it held up in the post?

I believe I purchased the bridge. You sir are mistaken. I've got a signed contract for the delivery. Receipt and proof of purchase all fair and square. It's coming on Friday. Now I just need a harbour... Consider

Questions!
How can you love everyone without reducing this word to meaningless?

I can tell why I don't believe, as you said it is of interest to you in your intro thread. Indoctrination didn't stick. I also happened to read Edda in my young age and there wasn't much difference in regards to believability between two books of myths: Bible and Edda.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

I've got a harbour to sell you. Yes

Since there are so many variations of Christianity, my question would be which one do you believe?

What questions do you have for us?

Hi Alyssa2017, just so you know, many of us here were raised within one religion or another. Chances are good that we have been there and done that long before you were indoctrinated into your faith.

With that being said I’ll ask you some questions.

Have you noticed that people adhere to the faith they were raised in? Why do you think that is? Do you think it is a coincidence that you are Christian the same as your parents? Do you think it is a coincidence that a child born into a Jewish family follows Judaism? A Muslim? A Hindu? A person without beliefs? If one religion were the One True ™ wouldn’t it be obvious? If not why not? Does a god play favorites? Does an omnipotent, all-knowing god mean to condemn some humans from the start? Have you noticed how regardless of what religion you believe in others believe in theirs just as strongly? Or not at all? At what age do you regard a person to be mature enough to make critical decisions? Should teaching a child articles of faith before they reach this age be considered indoctrination, abuse, both, neither?

Just some questions off the top of my head. I’ll think of others if you answer these.

FC, have you been reading The God Delusion lately? This line of thought sounds suspiciously like a setup to Dawkins point that there is no such thing as an [insert religion] child, or his argument that geography and society have a lot to do with the choosing of people's faiths, that if I'm born in Salt Lake City to Mormon parents, I'll probably be Mormon. If born in the Middle East, to Muslim parents, I'd be a Muslim, etc.

Need to think of a witty signature.
