I just had a bad title is all. I'm sorry.

I was serious when I asked why you were not a Buddhist. Please answer.

I'm an atheist because people claim gods exist and, near as I can tell, I don't believe in any of those. I say "as near as I can tell" because I'm not at all sure I really understand what you mean by a 'god'. You hear things like "creator of everything"; "undetectable", omni-everything, supernatural, blah blah blah. So if a god is anything like that, then no I don't believe anything like that exists - and won't unless I find out otherwise. [Pro-tip: eye witness accounts don't come close to sufficing where such extravagant claims are being thrown around.]

“Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand.”

― Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

Why haven't you devoted yourself to Odin and the coming of Ragnorok? It's not that hard to die in battle and earn your place.

For one, it's not that hard to be a devoted Christian. The two great commandments of Christianity is to love God and love your neighbors. It's not that hard, people. Seriously.

Number two, I'm honestly very curious as to what led you to atheism. I'm a beginner in this sort of thing and although I still am a Christian, I'm still researching the truth. I am on the side of truth. If Jesus and God are debunked, I will surely move to atheism myself.

Thanks.

First if all, why do you care? You came here, we didn't go get you to be all atheisty around you.

If it's not difficult for you to be a devout Christian then go do that....emphasis on 'go'.

You have nothing to say about your faith that someone here hasn't heard before.

I don't believe you are curious...I also think I smell either troll or sock.

Because anything and everything outside of Christianity that is in any way spiritual, I consider to be the work of the devil. Classic Christian doctrine. At least I think.

I find it excruciatingly hard to "love" a fictional character. So there's that. And I can love my neighbors without being a Christian.

Except Buddhism is older than Christianity. And Buddha was also said to have the ability to walk on water and perform magical feats.

Hey, I love Voldemort. His nose is sexy, and I'd do him in a very gay way Smile

I'd Flipp his endo
I'd Alo his mora
I'd Levi his osa
and I'd certainly Avada his Kedavra

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Would someone parse this exchange for me please. I am struggling to make sense of it.

Yes, but the history of the Bible preceded Buddhism.

Satan started fucking around with people before Jesus Christ was born.
