i am a nonbeliever, though i grew up in a fundamentalist christian home. i live in a very religious part of the US, and most of my peeps are christians. and the psych, anthropology, history and politics of christianity & other religions are super fascinating. so i need to continue to learn about this stuff...

comment What reasons does Christianity give for “Why There Must Be A God?”
@degausser - painful as it is, your families issues with your non-belief have very little to do with whether you should believe - that should be based on whether you find evidence or reason on your own.

comment Christian significance of Tolkien and CS Lewis putting “heaven” across the sea?
TRiG - I've been reading the Chronicles of Narnia to my daughters over the past year, and they seem very consistent to me. As well as extremely beautiful. God should have had CS Lewis write the Bible.

comment How is it that an unchanging and omniscient God can have “regret” as He did in Gen 6:7?
he can't be completely unlike us if we were made in his image.

@warren - well, this is why people arguing I should believe in God because he's behind everything that's good and beautiful sound ridiculous. God sounds like an *** to me.

comment By what mechanism could the Bible be inerrant?
What was the point of doing that if we were allowed to create so many bad translations (e.g. some translations of Deuteronomy 22) and to confuse and disagree with so many details? To me this is like God produced an HD, 3D video of THE TRUTH and then released it to 1st generation Youtube quality. If he really wanted to send an inerrant message then why put it out into such a low fidelity, poorly transmitted medium?

comment How do schisms in the church fit into the plans of a monotheistic God?
@Jon, thanks -- if anybody wants to take the core of my answer and run with it, I'm cool with that. Since I dont believe in a monotheistic God, I feel like its not appropriate for me to give a real answer :)
