Did you have a strange experience with something claiming to be God?I don't diagree with that. but we aren't forced to change are we. When was the last time someone convinced you by verbally bulldozing you? Probably never. Even if you submit on the surface, in your head you're still clinging to your beliefs. And you're irritated and resentful of the other person, to boot.
I very much doubt that, simply because of the reasons I gave in the OP.
Faith is not a good path to truth. Sorry.
No, it doesn't. In fact, it makes it far more complicated. But this thread isn't about that, anyhow it is simply special pleading to say it makes more sense.
Well good for you.
I, too, am curious, But I like to make my own decisions. I have not once said that a god isn't probable. My dilemma is, if something did claim to be a god. How can I be sure it is what it says it is.
(As for changing. Living life forces us all to change in various ways.)
