"I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and intellect has intended us to forgo their use." Galileo Galilei

I don't believe that this is a quote that can readily be overlooked. Indeed, if there is a god, and he created us in his image, then wouldn't he use his intellect, reason, and continuing knowledge to question himself as the great french philosopher Descartes did when he wrote,"I think, therefore I am."? Why shall we ever believe in something so profound as to never question it, and to blindly follow it with such fervor?

I Am Going To Read The Bible

I grew up in a family that went to church on holidays and said grace before meals, so you could say we weren't the strictest Christian family, we just worshipped when it was most convenient.

How Would You Answer This?

Ok, that sounds good. Thanks for the discussion so far. But real quick, may I ask you this question: What is the inverse of the statement "I don't believe in God?" Seems there should be an inversely logical conclusion. "I don't believe in God; therefore, inversely, I do believe there is no god." I don't believe x; therefore, I believe in the opposite of x. It sounds like a mathematical equation because it is.

Pew Study Finds Why Your Arguments Don't Work

So before we get really excited about the latest Pew Study that finds atheists/agnostics to have a higher understanding of religious knowledge than...well the religious, I took some time to think about one of the famous quotes by Stephen Roberts.



"When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods

you will understand why I dismiss yours."



Do you see the problem why theists don't get us?



If the theists don't know much in regards to…
