Alpha,
Doesn't God care about frivolous converts to Christianity? No circumcision needed, correct?

Typical atheist maneuver. Why answer the question when you can deny and dodge it instead?

Actually, Sparky, we're in agreement. Other people disagree that it's hyperbole, though.

Yes, it is a typical theist maneuver... Laugh out load

It's also a typical theist maneuver to set someone up for such a stupid remark. You knew I couldn't answer any other way and be consistent. Wow, such "debating" skills. Laughat You truly did flunk Logic 101 I see.

Edit:
Since you edited your post to say "atheist", I'll edit mine to point out it was one hell of a Freudian slip! Big Grin

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.

Sure, egg on my face for forgetting to add the "a," Drooling but you're correct: you couldn't answer in a satisfactory way. It was an unreasonable question, as is the OP.

^ Christianity set the bar extra low for guys like this who need to be told what to think, and repeat it back like a parrot.

β€œIt is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.”
― Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes

Regarding the OP, plenty of other people provided answers. If you couldn't come up with one, it's not because the question was unreasonable.

And that's not egg that's on your face. Laughat

I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.
