    How does the means of your own rights to peace & happiness compromised by the traditions of the Old Testiment.
    How has the Old Testiment verdicts compromised your pursuit of freedom and liberty?

    I ask because it would seem, irregardless of the way private interest groups think, it appears to me that objections to the OT are predicated on injustices imposed upon others.

    And simply knowing that there are those that adhere to the Old Testiment verdicts ---gives you some sort of complex that you feel neccessary to purge your self of.

    Prompted by imposed injustices, thus seeking a revolution to overthrow traditions that dis-allow progessive freedoms?

    because you cannot see the effects does not mean there are none.

    the effects are buried deep in american culture like a tick on a hound dog

    This effects childrens educations severely to this day

    We may argue all day if God exists, but neither you or any other nonbeliever will achieve knowledge.

    But if we argue that God himself is the one that must provide that necessary knowledge, then it is up to the nonbeliever to obtain a revelation from that God. And whosoever does obtain anything from a God. then that person has received on their own merits or faith. No one will get something for another where God is concerned, you must approach Him on your own merits and if you fail you have been deemed unfit for the revealing of His person or gifts. This is the best defense a Christian has against nonbelievers: Get it yourself and if you fail you must be unfaithful to begin with. Just with all things, there is success and there is failure. And seeking God will have its successes and its failures.

    Only a blase bourgeoisie neer-do-well says such things.

    How many of us can live in the master's manor?

    We seek equality amongst indifference, while others live aloof from the low-rent folks.

    It may not be real God-hood . . . but for all practical purposes, the life of societies movers, shakers and group-thinkers POP-Culture were manor-borne until their past noble good-karma is spent.

    From Lord Brahma to the common ant all are subject to birth, death old-age & disease while surjorning in this material world of duality and samsara.

    Transcendence is unaffected by such mundane qualities . . . at least, as per the strict definition of the very world, "Transcendence".

    There's no physical evidence for the existence of god, only a priori reasoning.

    The logical arguments for the existence of God, while compelling to some, don't convince me that any of the current deities on the religious market are real.

    Basically, we don't KNOW. We can't, at least not for the forseeable future. I think it's funny that some people are so convinced that they KNOW whether god(s) exist or not; anyone with even a rudimentary philosophy background knows that there's debate as to whether we can really even know anything at all, let alone the existence of deities, how our existence came to be, the one true meaning of life (if there even was such a thing), etc.

    Yes, because only bored capitalist layabouts question the existence of god.
