    Imagine your parents, all your freinds, your school and evryone around you from birth told you it was true...
    Now be told that people will try to fool you with information to make you no belive, but they are evil and sinners. Tools of Evil and if you resist them you will get perfect glory and evrything will be great.
    Now your told your better then others...you will be saved they will not...
    Now some of these same adults get into the public school system and start trying to prevent science of Evolution and other things from class...Or pretend that the bible is a Scientific book and needs to be given equal wait...

    Now someone breaks that bubble and tells you about Evolution and how the bible does not hold up historically with science, and everything you believe it not true.... you lay out all the evidence you can....and maybe a few see it,,,but most see....Just like my mama and the pasture said they would do, ....I am the one who knows the truth.
    and they ignore it and go back to evryone telling them they did good,

    that's the cycle for many , especially in the rural south
    And its great for Politicians, they run like hell on it. Plus you can do anything you want so long as you say your pro life, and your now better then the liberal running against you. That was literately all Trump needed to say to get evangelicals to dry hump him. They ignored that he is pretty much a horrible person, has no morals, married and cheats all the time...knows nothing about the bible.....

    Many are the same type of People who join Isis...and by Islam For Dummies of Amazon before the go.

    Evangelicals in this country don't know what persecution is.. Name calling by goofy liberals, Who cares really?
    Gay marriage, they can call it anything they won't, doesn't CHANGE A THING. Don't forget Obama had both houses once..

    When was Earth formed? When did man appear? Does the Bible contradict science in answering these questions? Not really..

    I think of the Evangelical leadership as the Christian Taliban.

    Walter i'm not ignoring your post, this one is going be a very long response. Short version.. if science is true and I believe a lot of it is, then I have to make what I believe fit that narrative because what I believe is real to me.

    so in other words you have to keep making it fit what you want it to say...rather then let it just say what it says and admit it may not be true.

    You search for evidence he does not exist, you make it fit your narrative,rather then let it just say what it says and admit it MAY BE TRUE . that's what I'm saying.. you guy's are so predictable ..

    I don't have to search for evidence God does not exist...I happen to find zero evidence that he does. If you have no evidence something exists you start with that baseline, and you don't say well there is no evidence this is true, but I will just believe it until I prove it does not. I use to believe, but that fell away when I questioned it and could find nothing to say it was true. Also I never said it can't be true, It may be true. But the idea that something maybe true, but has no evidence to suggest it is, means I go under...it is not until I find such proof. It may be True that Mohammad was a Profit of God as well...I don't find any proof of that, but nor do you....yet I hardly would bet you say well maybe he was....How many Religions do you Admit may be true and yours not?
