I don't care how many degrees or books someone has, if they believe Jesus turned water into wine and rose from the dead without evidence they are illogical. And if they preach this as true they're selling snake oil but actually believe what they're selling.
I'm not saying God of Gods don't exist, I'm saying there's no evidence any human has actively communicated with them and then wrote down what they said in a book or scroll. It's illogical with without evidence. Bullshit baffles brains.
If the best you have to defend your beliefs is "fuck you" and "but i have a degree" then that tells me all I need to know. I'm not even anti-Christian I'm more anti-religion and anti-bullshit. There's a lot of great stuff in the Bible, but it's side-by-side a lot of nonsense. Same with churches themselves. The Bible should be viewed as a book of philosophy and parables, people who take it literally or as dogma are fooling themselves.
But you know what UM? If you should fall on hard times and need our help, we would be there for you, no questions asked.
Well I respect this philosophy at least. But you don't need God and Jesus to think or behave like this.
