What about your belief makes yours less ignorant than other peoples belief?  

 

Easy. My belief about when we die is that we are simply dead. Gone. No afterlife. No consciousness. Nothingness. Pretty much exactly like we were before our births. All information we have about our mortality as well as the mortality of all other forms of life points to this being the most likely scenario. Since this is based on the best information available at the moment, and since it makes the absolute most sense of all the popular beliefs about what happens when we die, that makes it less ignorant. The afterlife idea of the bible needs to be demonstrated as being true, otherwise it is just a ridiculous assertion with less basis in truth and more basis in emotional comfort.

   What you are saying is still a belief. Yes its based on the info we have, but how do you know we have ALL the info? We find out new and amazing things all the time through science.  Theres nothing wrong or ignorant for people to believe or have faith there's an afterlife. To say so is similar to saying we know everything and theres nothing left to learn. Thats a little ignorant in itself right? You may be right that there is nothing, but that cant be proven anymore than saying there may just be something else after we die. Be a heaven and hell, reincarnation or what have you.....

The fact he would change his belief when presented with sufficient evidence.  Also not claiming supreme knowledge while being unable to demonstrate any truth to his claims.

  When he stated that it was ignorant to believe in any sort of after life, he sorta did claim to have supreme knowledge.  Like his belief was better than anyone who believes other wise, and there's nothing else science can learn about it. At least thats what I picked up from it.

The Afterlife is the ultimate sales pitch...

"dont you want to be with your loved ones eternally...provided they are not sinners and made it to the finals of "The Jesus Ultimate Ninja Warrrior" obstacle course otherwise known as redemtion?" Only 10% or you salary each week and buying in to a deity that watches and judges your pre-determinied free-will decisions.

God will find you in good favor if you appease this omnipotent being who is jealous of other gods(other gods?) that do not exist...bc they were created by man.

However This story!....created during the Bronze Age..limited by the days science and morals...is all TRUE and undebatable bc the bible says its true...;and that the ultimate sin...stronger than rape or murder is to debate and ponder the actual existence of God and the bible.

As Hutchens says " It is simply anti-intellictuial " as the book is layed out as such you cannot question any of its validity...which King James eventually did omitting manuscripts in his house beat remix.

Atheism isn't a belief, it is a lack of belief.

 

We are awaiting evidence for Jesus, his divinity, an afterlife or a God of any type. 

 

Present that evidence if you can, otherwise your claims are what they are, unsubstantiated, wishful thinking.

 

It has been more than two thousand years, the world is still waiting.

Why is it atheist always try to bring down people who believe? Is it because they are bitter and feel empty in life? Whatever the case maybe for God the fact of the matter is atheist can't prove or disprove God. So while you not believing may make yourself feel good or superior keep that to yourself cause you come off as being a douche

I have a lack of belief in supernatural beings, the divinity of Christ and of any ghosts, goblins or gods.

 

You claim to know something, prove it.

 

Show me where I'm wrong.
