I certainly will not tell him "there is no God". I will teach him freethought, critical thinking skills, not to take the word of authority as true without evidence - even me - and...well I'm going to stop there because I must have been over this a dozen times already and people still don't get it
My sincerest apologies if I misunderstood the direction you were taking with your son. I am very happy to read that is how you approach it, and that he is encouraged to question you as well.
Of course not, so there you have your answer. We dislike ignorance and fantasy thinking here, we do not embrace it I'm afraid.
You say that, but you buy into all sorts of ridiculous reasoning for how life even came to be. Atheists embrace theories like the "big bang" , and have all sorts of 'fantasy" theories, on how magnetics , electricity, elements, and all the things that hold us together came to be.
There is absolutely no proof of the big bang, but we are ok to teach that in science to our children.
I think it is ignorant of humans to think they possibly could really know how life started , and they play guessing games with science of creation all the time, based on loose observations, and inconclusive testing.
I will say this, though, maybe just maybe there is a deeper reason as to why you are trolling this thread.
Could it be that you have been instructed to side track these messages ?
Not saying that is true, just wondering why all of a sudden there is such a strong participation from you, especially in putting extremely long posts, as if you are doing your best to take the focus off of the messages themselves.
You are even asking for other members to help now ?
Why Humphreys, if you are so sure there is no God ,does it matter so much to you if others have their fantasy ? Is it hurting you in any way ? Is getting more people to open up to prayer and to the salvation of Jesus, going to effect you at all ? It shouldn't .
So why all the fuss ,suddenly ? Maybe , just maybe, there are deeper reasons behind it ?
Sorry, just doing some critical thinking, and asking my self some questions here.
Seems to me , if you really thought God was just a fantasy, you wouldn't waste what precious time of this one life you do have arguing with idiots, and trying so hard to side track and derail threads on divine messages , or on God.
I mean really , Humphreys, by your beliefs you have one life , and then your gone...why are you wasting your precious time on this thread ? Why aren't you spending it with your son , or doing something much more constructive, by your own admissions.
