    Something other than the many "atheism is a religion" discussions...

    Title says it all, what is your single best argument for the existence of the Christian God?

    "Christ, not philosophy"...but if you want to reject Him, thats your choice. I am fine with whatever you choose.

    LOL. This is your idea of target practice? Was it raining at your place so that you could not go to the range today? :rofl:

    Ok so I’ll play for fun. And devils advocate.
    First cause, there needs to be something to start all other things. this original cause starts all other processes that are self continuing in the world around us
    If I can have a second
    Mankind’s idea of the infinite. Nothing around us is infinite, it can approach it but nothing is the hottest, the coldest, the longest, excreta. God, really any god is this giving us our infinite refrence point

    It's quite well trodden ground that I can no more prove that God does not exist than you can prove that Santa, Zeus, Ganesh, Quetzalcoatl or el chupacabra don't exist.

    I do prefer outdoor -- it is Colorado after all -- but the indoor range is only 15 minutes away, so it's much easier to run out, send 200 rounds down range and get back.

    Santa does not exist!

    I have waited up on Christmas eve and there never was a Santa.

    Sure it's fun to believe when you're a kid but then you realize it is your parents that provided all those gifts because they love you.

    And why would a parent love their children if there is no God and all is for naught?

    Because there is a God and all is not for naught!

    Do you somehow believe that because Santa did not visit your house, and your parents had to cover for him so that you didn't feel bad, it proves that Santa does not exist?

    Maybe you were on the naughty list and your parents didn't want you to feel bad.

    The complexity of life on this planet.

    Some may think it all just happened by chance, I don't.

    Probably my own conversion experience. When you witness something like that, it's pretty convincing. See morning glory thread.

    There are others, but the most interesting one to me (not sure if I'd say it is second place) are some of the judgments in Revelation. Some would've seemed ridiculous 2000 years ago or even 100 years ago, but seem probable now.

    What does Christianity say of Pagans? The Pagans had/have all kinds of gods and their religion was hijacked by Christianity in a recruiting effort along with the Druids to make Christianity more appealing. With so many religions out there, which ones don't claim to be the one and true ONLY religion? It's kind of like sports teams with a guilt base.
