    Is it possible to know whether God exists?
    What would it take to convince you that God exists?
    Would you want to know that God exists?
    What would you be willing to do to learn?

    If god exists, it should be possible to know that


    demonstrations of the truly supernatural controlled by a conscious force would be a good start

    ideally, I'd like to possess all knowledge

    you're starting to sound like Yukon asking the alter boys if they want to stay for 'private study'... :eusa_eh:

    You can not resist can you? You have to try to dissuade others from believing in God, attack or belittle ever post where someone does not believe as you do.

    YOU complain about the religious trying to persuade you to believe and do the SAME AGAINST the religious by trying to persuade them God does not exist.

    No you did not. You INSIST on attacking every religious post you can. You are NOT accomplishing your goal dumbass, you see those that believe are not swayed by your carping and those truly interested in learning are not either.

    Faith is not knowing.

    Hence the different words, know what I mean?

    Look, just because you're life sucks and you're all mopey doesn't mean you have to snap at everyone smarter than you because they make you feel stupid and you have no self-esteem.

    Go take a fuckin' happy pill and chill the fuck out, since you're clearly too stupid to be involved in this discussion.
