I suppose you could claim that. But all I'm saying is my dog knows empathy, not that she has a religion.

So, you said your dog believes and accepts God because she has empathy but then you said she didn't.

Which is it?
Well actually all I said was my dog knows\has empathy\God. Whether she believes in God is a discussion of semantics since I doubt she ever deliberated on the matter. After all she's just a dog.

Circular reasoning.

Is it wrong of me to desire a serious discussion from a serious atheist? I'm saying God is Love\Empathy. Now how am I suppose to respond to your claim that there exists no empathy in mankind because there are mosquitos?

This voice comes in my head and says something like,"hey, haven't you done that to someone before?" I answer."yes, but I had to get over to exit". Then He answers and says, "So why don't you give this guy the same benefit of the doubt about his intentions." Then I feel different and say, "you're right, thank you for the correction".

No, empathy is a trait that came about through evolution and is displayed by other species besides humans.

There is no evidence that empathy is a 'spiritual existence', whatever that means.

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

Saying that your dog is a Christian pretty obliterated any shred of seriousness that is taken of you.

This is looking less and less like Christianity and more and more like
