quote: I cannot say with 100% certainty that God exists. But I can say that prayer works and the principles in the Bible are accurate based on my experience.
quote: How can one say "I accept the fact that what I know about the fundamentals of the universe could be wrong." and "What you're saying is absolutely wrong, but I can't prove it." at the same time?
quote: Atheists, on the other hand, are fundamentally aware of the fact that their understanding of the universes is *not* absolutely correct, and is subject to revision at any time when new information is found via the scientific method. Atheism categorically does *not* say that "god can't exist." It says that there is no proof that a god or gods does exist.
quote: When you sit in a chair, do you first check to make sure it is sound? Unless you're neurotic (which is fine, mind you), you just sit down, strong in your faith that it will hold you.
quote: When you drive your car, you have faith that most of the people on the road around you know how to drive and are paying attention. If you didn't, you'd hardly be able to drive to work.
quote: Faith is real and you have it.
quote: Interestingly (or not), lack of faith in God is, by default, fanatic faith in oneself. Atheists have faith that their fundamental understanding of the universe is absolutely correct and that faith says that God can't exist.
