Welcome Mark Dreher
Mark is a new forum member who has written his own bible[1] and now seeks to end atheism, one person at a time[2]. Mark, like I said in the introductions thread... if you're here to be a human being I'm sure you'll be welcome. We accept all kinds here. Just be aware that you're not the first person I could have written this post about Wink

If you're here for the apologetics then I hope you have something more substantial to offer than the links already provided...

[2] http://thenewholybible.org/atheists_here...of_God.htm

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

Oh, goody, another True Believer™. Drinking Beverage

How long will you last here, Mark? You will not gain any converts or convince anyone that belief is the same as knowledge or that faith is evidence.

What do you hope to accomplish?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

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

5.5 million hits.

Most of them, actually about me.

Holy shit.

Um.

How doth the old man in the sky feel about you's being so forward? I thought he tended to take rather violent exception to those who take glory for themselves ? (Even in the NT, e.g. death of Herod).

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

Yikes.

(but with love, you know.)

Well it's nice and all, especially since you use love and not e.g. guns... but I highly doubt your powers Tongue What's a 'real atheist' ?

(I reply here to avoid cluttering up the intro thread).

It doesn't really matter what he believes, one True Believer™ is pretty much like another.

Some are a little more crazy than others though.

Given that Subject A has written a whole new Bible, I think we can safely say that he's serious and not at all deranged.
