scott p scott p is offline Apologetics OnlyDec 2010Posts25Default Can I fit in here?Hi everyone.I've read a few threads by recent arrivals, and I find myself in a difficultsituation. You see, I'm an atheist, and I fear that no matter what I say aboutmy reasons for joining, I'm going to be in the shadow of every other atheist who's come here, taken a shot at you, and then disappeared (perhaps even that lastsentences is going to be viewed with suspicion).I don't want you to "ask me anything" like a recent guy, but I won't hide from anything that's asked of me - that would just be rude to do so.I don't plan on debating you guys on theology. I know I'm likely out of my depth there, and even I'm not silly enough to think a guy on an internet forum isgoing to dispell anyone's long-held faith.The reasons I've joined are threefold:1) I see a lot of statements being made that are just plain incorrect. Not from a theological view, but simple facts. I'd like to discuss those.2) I'm curious about why you think what you think.3) Yes, I could go somewhere else and talk with people who agree with me. Unfortunately that sort of "me too" conversation won't hold my attention for verylong.I hope I don't step on too many toes.January 1st, 2011 03:57 PM 2chrisb01chrisb01 chrisb01 is offline Revelation 22:7Oct 2009LocationLakeland, FloridaPosts141Default
 
Well, I want to welcome you. You are the reason we're here.You see, God has put love in our hearts for all people. We want you in heaven with us.You have some questions, shoot.Chris Baez, Jr. January 1st, 2011 04:06 PM 3Steve53Steve53 Steve53 is offline ModeratorJun 2008LocationWNCPosts11,254DefaultQuote Originally Posted by scott p View PostI've read a few threads by recent arrivals,Please go ahead and read the "sticky" threads at the top of this forum. I think it will save you a lot of time to do so.As for your interpretation of what you feel are "incorrect" "simple facts" -please be mindful of the board's posting rules when attempting any such discussion.The following is an excerpt from another thread which you may or may not have already seen as it was just posted today -Remember also, the people with whom you are communicating have not always been Christians. Your viewpoint is very well known and believe me when I say we have seen every objection, and "fact" and supposed "contradiction" you can possibly offer. You can package your questions only so many ways - there is nothing newunder the sun.We will gladly provide you with information about our Lord and Saviour and answer any sincere questions that you may have. The thing for us is in gauging your sincerity - you see, we're not convinced you came here to learn anything.This isn't our first dance with a non-believer. Be very careful in how you go about attempting the presentation of your historical "facts" as any form of proselytizing for atheism is a violation of the board's posting rules. Restrictive? You bet. This forum is not a platform for atheists. Having said that, we willentertain honest questions framed in a respectful manner."Questions" framed in a condescending and or cynically derisive tone will likely be edited for content if not deleted altogether. "Questions" that are merely nothing more than thinly disguised atheist evangelsim in the guise of a rebutt
 
al will also not be tolerated. This is not a debate forum.Come soon Lord Jesus - Take us Safely HomeJohn 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer. January 1st, 2011 04:12 PM 4Steve53Steve53 Steve53 is offline ModeratorJun 2008LocationWNCPosts11,254DefaultQuote Originally Posted by scott p View PostHi everyone.Are you really an atheist Scott?
