No one can disprove god just as no one can disprove fairies but who would be so bold as to claim god or fairies as proven by their personal experience? When will you both understand that for an atheist to prove to you that fairies exist he would need as much physical evidence as we require from you that god exists. Can you not get your head around the fact that your belief in the bible has no relevance. I am not sure if I am mad even attempting to explain to you that the bible for an atheist is a book of myths and legends with no factual accounts or proof that god exists.
I was just answering a question. Don't get defensive because I was telling someone else why I believe what I read. Don't get upset that you cannot change my mind, I believe anybody that partakes in a philosophy forum is indeed trying to become more knowledgeable, and not just doing it to argue over opinion. Whether God exists or not is only that "a matter of opinion." In my opinion God exists." In your opinion "God is not". Why care who is right since neither side is provable. Instead we should be trying to aquire more knowledge and wisdom together.
I get annoyed Parro because the debate is entrenched in one description of god and all I ever hear in evidence for god is an archaic history book about one particular tribe sistuated in the ME. It's like an atheist constantly using Darwins book on the evolution of species and nothing else. Christians appear to have this attitude that no other description of god could possible exist. I do not want to change your mind I want you to keep an open mind and explore other possibilities.
