    Unfortuately you can't have it both ways. To quote C.S. Lewis "There are two kinds of people in the world. Those who say to God, 'thy will be done' and those to whom God says 'Thy will be done'". God loves you enough to give you what you ask for.

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    And then there are those who are truly benevolent, and there are those who claim to be... because they offer you a deal "you can't refuse" (ala Godfather).

    I don't believe that God offers deals.

    Sure it does. I look at the evidence in nature for the existence of a Creator and I think that an atheist must have more faith than me if he or she can ignore the clues and not entertain the idea of the reality of God.

    Why do Atheists have to be such self-righteous pricks? Seriously; if you don't believe in God, that's cool I respect that. But why do you feel the need to crap all over those who do? I believe in God, but I keep it to myself and I'd never shove my beliefs upon anyone else. So what the Hell harm am I causing? I'm so f*cking sick of these pompous, arrogant douchebags like Richard Dawkins and his ilk trying to seem superior because they're atheist. You don't have the answers to life any more then religious people do, so get over yourself.
