Ouch! While I don’t know if those comments were directed at me, I do apologize for my mistake. I could have sworn I logged in when I posted this:
[quote author=“Anonymous”][quote author=“CDNemelka”][quote author=“johnpritzlaff”]Thanks again for that link.
Sam did extremely well, as usual. Sucks that he got cut off at the end, but I think he was trying to say something like “The question you should ask is not what evidence is there against God, but what evidence there is for God.
Anyways, he did very well, and it felt great to hear such similar viewpoints to mine being expressed on a national level once again. I hope he does a lot more publicity for his new book (and I hope I can find links to said media on this website).
As a devout Christian, I believe that Mr. Harris’ latest book and arguments are cogent, easy to understand and I agree with nearly every point he is trying to get across.
I also agree the real question is:
“not what evidence is there against God, but what evidence there is for God.”
Can someone point me to the link for this show? I’d love to see it.
Yes, I obviously believe in God but that doesn’t mean I think Mr. Harris isn’t correct about a lot of the issues he talks about.
I also believe in God (well, I think that God most likely exists - I don’t claim that I am sure of it or that I cannot be dissuaded from the possibility of him not existing - and there is a huge difference between the two in my opinion). I am, however, not a Christian. My God is a little different, it’s a God that I think most secularists could loosely accept, and it surprisingly can be defined by most of the “omnis” of faith. My religion is different from yours (at least if you’re like most Christians) in that it accepts the scientific method completely (and not in the way creation “science” does). I know this sounds contradictory, but it’s is for another discussion.
Anyways, my point is this: how do you rectify your religion with Sam’s views (at least the ones you agree with)? Not rhetoric, I’m honestly interested, and I’m not trying to sound smug. I don’t doubt you could have a good answer.
My bad, seriously. I too dislike it when people come on as guests, not only because it’s irresponsible, but because it restricts communication. It won’t happen again, if I can help it.
