@CrakrJak: Actually a universe where NO unlikely fortunate events occurred would be evidence FOR the existence of a god. A universe that HAS unlikely fortunate events is simply one where 1-in-a-million events happen occasionally when there are millions of opportunities for that to occur. That's not evidence of any god, let alone your particular one, that`s just regular old statistics and probability in a large pool of data.

@akabane, the answer is that none of them are always right. The age of consent varies from individual to individual based on mental competence. Picking one age is just a way of simplifying things legally. Serious psychological research would have to occur to pick a better means of deciding when consent should be allowed, and that would be a tough research project to get past an ethical review board.

"But Christianity TEACHES tolerance, unlike some other religions."

You mean those christian preachers who blamed the recent earthquake AND hurrican on gay marriage? Is that the tolerance you were speaking of?

As for point number 6, i was curious on the fact on who set the ground rules for "moral code." How much is too young for sex?

Who is right?

davymid: Most people that you would call gnostic theists are likely ones that have witnessed a miracle, and what I mean by that is, a Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction kind of miracle. I don't normally use movie references, after all movies are fiction, but it`s a reference most people will know immediately. An unexplainable fortunate happening, a perceived `divine intervention` of a disaster averted.

You`d likely call those incidents just `dumb luck` or random chance, but to the people involved, who are religious, they see it as a miracle and proof of God`s existence.

I`ve never tried to use the miracles I`ve witnessed as `proof of God`, to anyone else, I can`t prove that God`s hand came down and manipulated the situations involved, it`s just a gut feeling inside me.
