    Have you ever read the Greek myths? They are not even close to the God described in the Bible. Not close.
    There's a God in your (and every believer's) head, right?
    No, God is not in our heads. He is outside of our heads.
    God (and gods) can be seen in pictures and sculptures, right?
    Maybe gods. God? No.
    An atheist does not deny any of these things.
    Well, except you think God is only in our heads and we deny that God is in our heads alone.
    An atheist is an atheist because of the complete lack of evidence that any god - including yours - exists anywhere else.
    Quatum leap. You talk about literaure and so on, and then suddenly switch to you have no evidence. We respond that we have plenty of evidence of God. Not only evidence for Him but evidence of what He is like and it is always consistance. That you personaly have no evidence does not mean there is no evidence. That is the problem. We have seen the evidence. You have not seen it. We know it is there. You deny the evidence that we have seen is there.

    What do you suppose that means JIG?

    Sounds like a cop-out to me (JimD not you.)

    Satan quoted scripture. Anyone can repeat something from the Bible misleading others.

    Certainly you deny all of those things. What kind of atheist are you?

    An atheist is an atheist because of the complete lack of evidence that any god - including yours - exists anywhere else.

    Right?
    Where atheists are concerned, sure. We've talked about this Stephen. I told yiu the Bible says the atheist will be remain blind to God. You called it a catch all or a safety net or something to that effect. I'm really ok with your belief.

    It means you still have time until Jesus says:

    "...those Mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither and slay*them*before Me." Lk.19:27
