I still remember the one email he wrote saying that "evolution is not a science but something called extrapolation" I laughed so hard after reading that. His emails can be very entertaining to read when talking of things about science and me being an atheist. He asked me a really stupid question once that read " do you still pray even though you don't believe?" And I simply wrote back " Let me ask you something, do you pray to a unicorn? No because unicorns don't exist."
Ask him if he prays to Thor. I mean, what argument does he have for the existence of his god that can't be applied to another?
The reverse is true, too. What arguments does he have to dismiss another god that doesn't also apply to his.
I've never had a theist answer me that one. :(
Thats a really good idea:) I wish I would've thought of that. Thanks:)
Ah yes a good variant of the "once you understand why you don't believe in Thor, you will understand why I don't believe in Yahweh"
I wonder if the believer friend knows that Yahweh is the name of the per-monotheistic polytheistic god of war?
Of course not, why do I even bother to think such thoughts. LOL
Wow, talk about a non-answer. I think that he really must be trying to mess with you, or is way too far gone to give such a poor answer.
I think he is way too out there. He is currently living on a farm in California and is 13 miles from the city and is living in the mountains where there is no wifi and he is working with what he said are rainbow people. He went over there back in April and I keep asking him when he'll be back and he keeps saying " I don't know just yet."
Thor speaks with thunder and lightning! You can see that! You can hear his hammer in the clouds!
If his god can speak, ask him to leave you a voicemail!
If his god can speak, ask him to say something. Wait for the silence..
RE: "He can see,hear, and speak." - How does he know this, because it says so in a book, written by 2- and 3000-year old men?
I sent Larry a video of one of Tim Minchin's songs: The Good Book. And this is what he had to say:
Thank you, I was glad I got to see that vid. Do you think it gets
kind of boring? but those who are angry at God make fun of His book, but they
have nothing else. They can not find a mistake in it. All they can do is make
fun. They have no answers to lifes problems, and can not discredit God in any
way. I was as I said glad to see it. It is easy to make fun, and make fun
for money, but that doesn't eliminate any of the people that are hurting right
now in our Country and the World. I'm happy to be writing to you. I am
thinking of Taking care of some goats and sheep. Have a very Blessed day

Ask him about the camels Abraham's servant took to Laban's place in Haran, in 2300 BCE - when Humans didn't domesticate the camel until 1000 BCE. Ask him about the flood that covered the entire earth to 22.5 feet above the highest mountains, when there isn't enough water in, on, under or above the earth to cover even Mt. Ararat more than half-way, and certainly not enough to cover Everest.
Ask him what difference it made that "the sun stood still," when it's the rotation of the earth that governs our concept of time. The Bible is loaded with mistakes.
