Re: Welcome Back GDR
Show us this data of which you speak. How about making an actual damn argument?

What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence. -Christopher Hitchens

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Disconnect between post and title
I do not see what your OP has to do with Choosing a Faith. Very few people choose their faith. They are indoctrinated into them as children. The data on this is irrefutable.
But if you do not want to talk about the premise of your title, ignore away.

Re: Welcome Back GDR
Well good for you. I have no idea what you are talking about by data. Since you brought it up, it is incumbent on you to explain what you mean. You can make the claim that there is data and then say you do not have to present it because this is a faith discussion. That is against forum policy, but also proves what inconsiderate, insincere and untrustworthy participant you are.

Doesn't matter how you feel. If a person identifies as Christian they are Christian. No matter what you biases and prejudices are.

Re: What does God want of Us
Hitler was not an atheist. Quit saddling us with him. He was a Christian.
For more info. If you have a wiki problem, then follow the links to the sources. If you are incapable of that and want to continue to deny facts, I will gladly present them to you, one at a time.

Re: What does God want of Us
How about we agree on nothing? Your post is irrelevant. It was presented that Hitler was an atheist and that is objectively not correct. He was a Christian. Everything you posted was word salad and not meaningful or relevant.

Re: What does God want of Us
Your whole response is irrelevant to what I posted. I am not going to respond to anything you said because it is a gish gallop, strawman arguments and word salad.
You presented that Hitler was an atheist. This not correct in any way shape or form. If you want to prevent evidence to support that assertion please do. If you want to randomly spout shit please go elsewhere.

Re: What does God want of Us
Evidence and sources please. He was a Christian as were the people that committed genocide, in the name of their god, against indigenous people of the Americas, Africa and Australia. That is irrefutable.

Phat still does not understand basics of argument
You are so caught up in your delusions, you are incapable of grasping the basics of a very simple argument. The willfully ignorant should keep their thoughts to themselves, rather than proudly proclaim that ignorance.
