The thing I miss being an atheist is the ability to bless things. It would be nice, by just a positive thought, to help some plant, animal or person thrive. But then again, Christians can’t bless either; they just pretend to.~ Roedy (born: 1948-02-04 age: 66)

Every atheist has had this conversation with a Christian.~ Roedy (born: 1948-02-04 age: 66)
Despite the scientific evidence, the universe was created by god in seven days and the earth is 6000 years old.
How do you know that?
It says so in the bible, and the bible is infallible.
I will leave how you know the bible is infallible aside for a moment, but how did the people who wrote the bible know how god created the universe?
God told them.
How do you know that god told them? And how did they know it was the creator of the universe, rather than some delusion, or evil demon, maybe even Satan? How do you know the anonymous authors of the bible could be trusted to take good dictation and not just make stuff up?
It says so in the bible.
We are going around in circles. This is just circular reasoning.
It does not make sense unless you have faith. Your problem is you are too logical. You will never understand unless you abandon rationality.
So you have to be crazy to swallow Christian BS. I gathered as much.
