"OK, allowing for the possibility that a million gods could be "wrapped up" together in such a way that the million of them as a whole could be called "The One, True God" is not "merely semantics" to me. It's a…"

"If someone embraced the Helios narrative, then that would mean they believe in Hyperion and Theia as well, who in turn descend from Gaia and Uranus. Each of these would be regarded as "gods" in the sense of "a superhuman being or…"

"Well, seeing that even the ancient Greeks did not consider Helios to be The One, True God... I've given what I consider to be some pretty elementary logical advice: if you have a genuine interest in identifying The One, True God, then you…"

"We've reviewed 5 candidates from polytheistic contexts in pursuit of the "true mono theos". I'm not seeing how this could be the most fruitful trajectory for accomplishing the stated task."

"Something smells fishy here. The Socratic method is a form of discourse in which a series of questions are asked, not to inform the questioner (as you would normally expect from questions), but rather in an attempt to expose underlying assumptions,…"

"KK,   If you sincerely want to sort out which God is The One, True God, may I suggest: Step number 1: Process of elimination. Rule out all the "gods" which never even claimed to be The One, True God. Rule out the "gods"…"

"Ahh, but that is precisely the rub I wanted to get at. I totally support a supernatural aspect to all of the accounts given so far, just like I support a psychological aspect to them as well. But due to the rhetorical nature of the way your…"

"Here is a very relevant personal anecdote related to my own journey of conversion from atheism to Christianity, which is very much tied to KK's Question 3 in particular. This may be more interesting and more helpful than other stuff I've…"

Why are you here?
To answer legitimate and sincere questions about Biblical Christianity.
Why you left your religion.
I left atheism when I was 17 when I had to admit to myself that my denial of God was ultimately based in my heart's unwillingness to bow down to an authoritative King over my life, rather than based on the intellectual arguments that I put forth to assure my conscience that He wasn't there.

In my limited opinion the main difference between us is what it takes to "know" somthing + what constitutes as good evidence. I'd love to tell you what it takes for me to say I "know" somthing, drop me a line if you want. Peace out buddy!
