  1. You can unfollow a person so you stop seeing their posts without the need to unfriend them. I've done the same with folks who post intolerable stuff but who are still of some importance to me.

    It explains your second point. I believe we are drawn intuitively to a creator because God wants to have a relationship with us. We can of course reject this though.

    My view on this is from Romans 1 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. If we are without excuse at judgment we either have received the gospel and rejected it or we have not yet received it but will before judgement.
  4. Is that maybe because we're not usually in it, rather than the competition itself?
  5. Think you're conflating emotions from that game with next season. Come September you'll be buzzing for it to start again.
  6. Great chance their but its games like the Watford, Bournemouth and Brighton games that have cost us an almost certain CL spot.

    Not true, more people have died post enlightenment than all the others combined. Last century was the bloodiest of all time, in a century where secular thought dismantled governments built in faith in God. You can say what you like about governments and religions being separated but what you cannot say is that it makes the world a less violent place.
  8. Win against united is all we need. Bring back de laet, Moore, King, cambiasso, nugent and Ulloa and we're golden.

    To make that statement you are assuming that your worldview is true but your worldview doesnt allow for truth, only faith that your own reasoning is reliable.

    Yes that's what I'm getting at. If God doesn't exist, this is the only position one can take, so we cannot possibly say the world would be a better or worse place without God as there isn't a standard to measure by and words such as better and worse are subjective. I disagree with your last sentiment though. I think it's intuitive that there is a standard beyond our own understanding and we certainly for the most part live as though there is one.

    Your outcome pressuposses your premise. Without God, the only definition we can use for better and worse is a subjective and personal one. If there is no God, there is no absolute standard to test this by, so the answer would be different to each individual and each individual's answer would be based entirely on their own subjective reasoning.

    I assure you it's not intentional haha

    I absolutely agree. The reason I do it though is for a couple of reasons: 1. To highlight worldviews can change. 2. People like to mock, so I think it's good to point out that people find faith through reason, not just because they were brainwashed as a child. 3. Often points are raised that are things I use to say to religious people and so I find it beneficial to expand on that. By me being a former athiest in no way increases or.decreases the possibility of God existing and I really hope I don't portray myself to be that arrogant. If I do, I guess thanks for pointing it out, that's something I need to work on.

    Yes and no. I found deism by myself, I went from athiest to believing in some form of creator after a few years of battling. Becoming a Christian was more from listening to Christians than an individual process though.
