    Controversial, yes. Worthless, not so much. Religious folks need to challenge their beliefs on occasion, or at least not be too afraid to discuss issues with those that don't share the same beliefs. You've participated often in the thread. You may not agree with this thread, but consider that just about every thread in GTRI is about something someone doesn't agree with.

    Still refusing to acknowledge that inductive reasoning can and must yield real world usable results since that is all we ever really have to work with? To say it differently, I am as sure that there is no god as I am sure that there is no Santa Claus.

    Not THE reason, but simply A reason.

    What's the real reason you post here?

    Religious folks include you. You need to lighten up and realize where you are in the universe. I'm guessing you are a 4.0 student, in a class full of 4.0's. Everyone gets a trophy.

    Still refusing to believe that others have used inductive reasoning to come to entirely different conclusions? Bringing into question it's usefulness?

    Most theists have used inductive reasoning, the sum total of all that others have told them and that they have personally experienced, and concluded that there is a god.

    You have used inductive reasoning, the sum total of all that others have told you and that you have personally experienced, and concluded that there is no god.


    Funny thing. You aren't that experienced at all. You have lived an infinitesimal amount of time compared to the age of the planet, let alone the age of the universe. You have traveled a miniscule amount on the planet, let alone the vastness of space. Your personal experience, and all the knowledge that you have learned from listening to others really doesn't amount to much when taken into the context of the origins of the universe. Most wise people understand that the more you know, the more you realize that you don't know. You are ironically unencumbered by such notions.

    I find that humorous.
