"YES! And I must add as a response to this:
"1 Corinthians 15:44 shows Paul saying that we are raised in a spiritual body. What really leave it confusing is, if we were already shaped in his image, will we then be an improvement upon…"
"Could you maybe give a reason as to why DNA and the earth's rotation are incompatible with the Abrahamic God? Besides the fact that DNA isn't mentioned in the Bible? You have to get that the Bible was written for people BEFORE the…"
"Oh, and just to be clear... I'm white, and I can admit I have no idea what it's like to be discriminated against because of the color of my skin. Sure, I've felt the tension of being the only white girl in the room, but that feeling…"

"Hi Bill, welcome to Think Atheist, FWIW. You're right, we're no so different. I was where you are, just a few years ago. Think Atheist is a great place to hang out. It's been great for me to have a place to go…"
"I really don't understand the fear part. Why must you fear God? If you love, respect, and admire him, then I would guess you trust him as well. I don't personally think that fear is a bad thing. We developed fear for reason to survive and…"
Well then I will temporarily and tentatively apologize. It is just very frustrating for me to see well thought discussions get sidetracked by having to deal with interjections of irrational poppycock - and that seems to be the only contribution that theists can ever make.
