It's called scripture and works or the products of one's life and work. It is verifiable, easily.

Scripture is the basis for every different Christian sect, it is not a standard for anything except disagreement, over 40,000 disagreements.

This alone is enough to prove that it is nothing but a man-created religion.

I copied it for you so that you can TRY AGAIN.

"Where do christians find the basis for this theory that we are all born with a natural desire to know god?
Is it biblical?
Is it something that they've just decided?
Do other religions find this to be true, or just the christians?"
If you can't see that I was staying that desire is in us all and that desire of material things as opposed to beneficial direction for all is diluted. If all have desire then all can meet that desire with truthful selfless direction and fulfil that desire more so than with material things.

No desire and thus forth desire to know of the creative force and correct direction of reciprocal thanks and giving is innate in All. If someone says they don't care to know meaningful things then they have no purpose.

I have a great idea, why don't you contribute at least 2$ to TTA every time you post, and this 2$ must be subtracted from any tithes you give to a religious organization.

That way, your posts actually will be worth something. Thumbsup
