@Smoothseas I thought one thing you brought up was actually worth responding to. I have three children. I raised all of them to be respectful of my own and other's personal convictions but let them know that they were not "what I was" just because they were my children. From a young age I explained to them that they would have to examine for themselves and make their own decision about what to believe and that "just wanting to be" didn't make them a Christian--or anything else. It had to come from a real experience and personal conviction.
Two of my children approached me independently a couple of years apart and told me they firmly believed in God and wanted to know what the next step was for themselves.
My oldest son had a traumatic experience and for several years completely rejected any concept of God as valid. I heard all the regurgitated arguments from the internet from him just as from you, saw the same smug "my friends and I know the truth" attitude from him that he picked up from more of his "internet enlightened" friends and I always had one response when he said, "All you Christians are like this or always do that!"
I'd simply look him in the eye and say, "Tell me when I did that to you?". He would immediately answer, "Well, not you--but all the other ones. You know what I mean." When he felt like expounding on his disbelief and would challenge me to respond, I'd give him the same answer each time, "Believe what you think is right--it's your life and on you. I don't expect you to believe what I believe because you haven't had the experience I've had and couldn't".
I never preached at him or slipped him bible verses and this past year he came home in tears and apologized for how he had acted regarding those times. He's also concluded there must be a God--despite years of being sure there wasn't and having all the answers--because of his own experience.
My new daughter-in-law was an attempted murder victim at the age of 13 and as she puts it, "Saw no value in anything to do with a made-up God" and had rejected him from that time on firmly--including mocking angrily anyone who talked to her about the topic. She's lived here a year now and after a month of barely talking with me got into late one night. She attends church now and simply says, "I've changed my mind." She just started considering it where she refused before. I had nothing more to do with it.
You want to argue people into or out of their points of view--or at least firmly dismiss the ones you don't like. I think people need to make their own minds up and pseudo-intellectual bullying isn't necessary.
So believe what you want--it's your life and on you. You just haven't had an experience. You can insist there isn't one--but since you don't know what it is or what it must mean that seems a bit stretched. How can you know what you don't klnow or understand?
You are better stated in saying , "I reject" as opposed to "I know" when it comes to any possible reality of a God and people's experiences and observations of it because the simple fact is you don't actually know yourself.
There's one big difference between you and I too--you're so sure you are right that you would tell someone something is not true or not worth investigating when you don't even know yourself. I wouldn't.
If you say something I haven't experienced and can't relate to, I'll happily let you know and ask you to expound. So far you sound pretty much like every other troll on the net who gets his kicks "pushing buttons".
I'm answering not so much for you because that's a waste of time at present but for others who might come along with real questions. They're worth the effort.
