Re: Verification through experience
Doesn't it seem that most of those who do try to "prove God" - e.g. YECs (fundies in general) - are lacking in "inner joy"? Don't they come off as angry, arrogant, sour on life?
This is a good point.
How many 'Christians' have we had here who are just filled with hate?
I know so many Christians who are at peace with themselves because they are convinced that they have a very real relationship with God. I can imagine that if I was in their position it wouldnt matter what people said about me or my Holy Book, as I would have the truth and what they think makes no difference.
But I have always said that 'Christians' who look for evidence of silly things like the Flood, or take idiots such as Wyatt, Scott, Hovind etc. seriously, really do have a very weak faith.
On topic though, isn't is such a waste of life believing in God because you feel good during meditation? A rush of chemicals and hey presto Yahweh is real!
