Can I ask why the "United Secular States of Knights of Shame" is even a member of our region (Catholic) when the description clearly states that we are a region of Christian nations, and they have informed us that they are atheist?

Because silencing decent is usually not a sign that you are correct. I also have not gone around insulting people personally, but have made arguments and points. You also cannot exist for your entire life in a bubble, one day you will be confronted by someone who differs from you in belief. Take the opportunity when you have hours or even days to think of and research a response to hone your arguments because there are 3 things that can happen, you'll hold onto your current rebuttals, you'll improve your rebuttals, or you'll accept that one or more point is flawed or wrong.

You believe you have the obvious truth, so you have nothing to fear from inquiry, right?

Problem is they normally run on ordinary zinc carbon batteries.

Fine

There are literally thousands of denominations of Christianity, and this ignores all other religions and cults, each one saying they have the truth and the correct interpretation.

You give way too much credibility to Protestantism with that. There's only thousands of denominations because of them.

If you do not understand something, I hope you do not simply believe it. You do not need need to be an expert , but some simple understanding should be obtained. My point was that the passage seems to be saying you can only know the truth when you accept the claim, and once you accept the claim, no more evidence is need, so just believe. Are you OK with this answer? Does this not bother you?

Let's say you have a maths teacher who has explained many things to you and answered all your questions about them. And then you go onto higher level maths and struggle with some of it. Just because you do not understand parts do you stop trusting that the teacher actually knows what he is doing?

Once we don't have to start over again.

The Principality of Grand Longueville wrote:Again, the Church is not biased.

I wish to contest this statement.

Let us suppose that a Catholic Cardinal is out on a stroll, oh, let us call him Cardinal Angelo Raffaele Sodano. So Cardinal Sodano is out and witnesses a Muslim Imam forcing his penis into the mouth of a young Muslim boy. What do you think Cardinal Sodano will do? I would hazard a guess that the Cardinal would immediately alert the authorities of the action, and likely give interviews about how evil Islam is.

Now, let us have the exact same situation, but have it be a Catholic Father and an alter boy that Cardinal Sodano witnesses. I no longer believe the Cadinal would alert the authorities, I now believe the Cardinal will try to cover it up and perhaps pay off the family, perhaps even attempt to pressure the pope into brushing off the claims.

If he would do this, then it is a clear indicator of bias of this one Cardinal. So the question now becomes, how many people, or how high do you have to go, in order to say that enough individuals are bias to claim that the entire group is bias?

Like all atheists I run on pure hatred and sandwiches made from babies, the other other white meat.

Fine? So do you accept your answer to my inquiry is not a satisfactory answer?

I have been told that Catholicism is right because the Catholic Church says it is right. So I give them the same credit I give you. I have yet to be informed oh why God exists or why a particular sect is right. You say they interpret the bible wrong, they say you do not take it literal enough or interpret the bible wrong. I read the words, and it does not seem to be inspired or divine to me. Perhaps I actually do not understand, but no one seems to be able to explain to me how to understand so that I may believe the claims, I have to believe the claims so I may understand. But I cannot honestly say I believe something I do not understand.

No, but if the Maths teacher says that they do not know the answer, and the advanced Maths teacher says that I have to accept the advanced Maths are true before I understand it, then I would have to say I do not believe in the advanced Maths claims until I can be made to understand, but the regular Maths teacher was right to say they do not know. Of course, this is an equivocation fallacy since math is a concept we both understand and although technically abstractions, math can be shown in a tangible way to work in the real world. When you say god, I do not know which god or the qualities you give to that God.

Also, if the teacher kept being wrong about what they said about the Maths they taught until forced to accept it, like the Catholic Church has done with many scientific findings, I would be hesitant to believe the current claims of that teacher. But the teacher that tested what they believed, and discarded what was shown to be false and thanked the person who corrected them, that would be the teacher I would respect even if they said thy did not know things they did not know.

Am not sure what you mean here.

Arrgh. It's the same maths teacher.

Let's call him Cardinal Brady. I have no time for him. He is not the Catholic church. He just resides in it in a position of power. I would not look to him for anything; neither should you.

If the Maths teacher you describe tells me to believe something without evidence or understanding, then it is illogical to believe it. That does not mean everything the person said is wrong, he might very well be able to explain why the sky is blue, but I doubt his knowledge about Maths, particularly, what he says I must accept without question.

Are you OK with Jesus talking in parables not everyone understands and not caring about the fragmentation of the faith he started?

He is not the Catholic Church, but the Catholic Church did try to cover the sex scandal. Let me ask you this, if no one spoke out about it, do you think the church would ever have told what was happening?

I by no means am trying to imply that I don't want to be asked about my religion and I am happy to answer questions but, and I'm not trying to be rude it was an honest question, why have you chosen to join a region who obviously has the complete opposite views as you. Again I am purely just wondering why? I could understand just posting on the board while being a member of another region that agrees with or accepts your beliefs, but I just don't think I would be able to join a group who's purpose I don't believe in
