They're all the same to me.

I'm simply confronted by Christianity more often than all the others combined.

I hope the confrontation is not attacking or demeaning....... DOC

For the most part, no.

Occasionally I have been informed that I'm going to hell. But thats mostly by my Mother in Law. And she's convinced that everyone is going to hell.

When I say confronted, I'm referring to the well meaning, but annoying attempts to save my soul.

And the occasional Mormon or Jehovah's Witness waking me up on Saturday morning.

No, I did not. I tsated I could not find it. Unlike you and yours, I seldom make broad generalized statements because they are usually indefensible. I'm willing to admit there are things I don't know and eager to learn what those things are. That makes me less ignorant.

I actually can understand it because, as many of the other atheists here, I once held similar hope and belief.

What struck me as odd was your remark that suggested to me that Christians that are not behaving Christ-like are no different than non-believers.

My belief is there is a difference between the two,but the appearance may be the same.Also,like the younger me,calling yourself a Christian does not mean you are a Christian.I realize that could be an entirely separate debate..................

I don't feel obliged to jump through your hoops. Back to the topic at hand, your statement that you used to be like the other atheists on this board is a bald faced lie, is it not?

So, an Atheist who comes to believe in Jesus is a liar? On what basis do you decide that?

By your own statement, you were a non-practicing Christian but you were never convinced it was all BS.

Oh,I get it now! You can ask me to prove God exists,but I can't ask you to prove something you said on this board. Either you said you couldn't find in the Bible when it was said that the risen Christ was SEEN by 500 people OR you don't know the Bible as well as you claim. Which is it? Or are you gonna pretend I'm not here?

And you will not change the subject

The choice is not either/or. I've read the bible cover to cover. I know it better than most that attend church regurlarly, but I don't have it memorized by chapter and verse. So, even if he didn't recall that the exact number of the crowd was specified, it doesn't mean he doesn't know what the bible says better than most that claim to study and believe in it.

I would also point out, that all we really have is one guy claiming 500 witnesses. We don't have 500 first hand accounts, so we really only have the one account to go by. The rest is hearsay. Pretty much renders the whole point moot. Time to move on, dude.
