Hey looks like that thread was closed. No reason given. Can anyone help me with this?

I don’t quite understand why a substantive topic would be locked.

What gives?

My guess is the name-calling & endless dead-end responses just got to be enough. I haven't been on it for weeks but when posters carry-on with insults and answeers like: "Well, you can't prove He does exist so you're ignorant, not a true Christian or your opinion is baseless", for myself I decided enough is enough and posted as much. Butt -hurt? Okay maybe so but the poster that essentially drove me off is happy I'm sure and I guess Administrators saw too much of this & closed it. Kinda makes sense, though. Since a true Christian isn't going to be dissuaded and the atheist are too close-minded to have a live-&-let live attitude to discuss the topic maturely

Rambler said he was reporting JBone, since he was banned, maybe he did.

He was having a bit of a melt-down, cognitive dissonance was getting to him.

It must be stressful to argue that something is true but be unable to answer questions directly that challenge it.

Catholicism has a definition as established by the Catholic church, your beliefs, as you described them, are not in alignment with them.
Why would that bother you?

Yeah one day they can look God in the face and tell him he doesn't exist.
Why should I think that will ever happen?
Do you have any evidence that god exists?

In short, because I disagree with you. But to extend that, NO ONE has the right to criticize or by implication as you did condemn one for one's beliefs. Your holier-than -thou attitude about to what degree a Catholic should follow his faith is insulting, elitist and reprehensible. If your Catholic you need to reassess your standards towards other Catholics......

Dude i'm not wasting my time trying to make you believe something you don't want to believe. Yes I have evidence he exists but it's because of his spirit working in my life , something you can't and won't understand. But I hope you get to meet him before it's too late.
Thanks but you are right, that doesn't sound like evidence.
I don't choose what I believe depending on what I want to be true. I require evidence.
When I say evidence, I mean a falsifiable hypotheses.
If you have one that holds up, then there is nothing to argue about, you would be convincing.

Well maybe we all need to take a break. Refill our quiver with truth arrows and substance then reapproach the matter at a later date.

I actually was very interested in how this new James Webb telescope would affect the conversation.

Truly I’m interested in the truth and I am a believer. Historically there has been a lot of pushback on the “creator” behind the guise of science.

I really and truly believe that this new science will be stunning and support and strengthen my beliefs.

I can also see it as another tool in big government’s arsenal to control the minds of casual observers. See if big government and the world elites could just wrestle our guns and God away and crush our families and associations then it will be that much easier to take full control, which by now if you doubt that well……….there is no hope for you at this point.

If someone doesn’t do it first I intend, at some point in the future, to start a thread and revisit this subject maybe from a different angle.

You said that you are Catholic, I observed what you posted about your beliefs and noticed that they didn't reconcile with what the Catholic church says it means to be Catholic.
Catholics set the policy, not me.
Why would my noticing that bother you?

The why do you avoid questions that would debunk your arguments?

That must mean the Russia - Ukraine thread is next? 🤣
That is such a sad situation.
I visited Ukraine and by coincidence went to many the same cities that are being destroyed now.
Those poor people are still attempting to recover from Socialism, and had so little to start with, now they are being bombed.
Many of them are religious, god doesn't seem to care about helping them.

When you look into his face you'll have all the evidence you need and you won't feel like the smartest person on the planet.
One thing you don't understand is God requires faith, you have to make a move and mean it. He won't reveal himself to people he knows won't believe.
God gives plenty of evidence he exists, it takes a decision and faith to act on it. Anyone who has a real relationship with God's understands what I am talking about

It sounds like you have to pretend to believe before you will believe.
That reminds me of how some athletes, (most noticeably boxers) convince themselves that they will win.
They have faith that they will win, but one of their faith is wrong.
So faith is meaningless.

I dislike people being told and believing lies.
Believing lies is at the root of so many tragedies.
