Dr. Spong is actually a big part of my "enlightening" to atheism. I have a tremendous amount of respect for anyone who can think so logically and still believe in a deity. I'm unable to, but more power to him. A brilliant man.

Thdot, Crakr is irreparably set in his ways. You can't convince him of anything.

@ CrakrJak. He is a retired bishop. Not a "former" bishop. You obviously know nothing about the man. I don't see how you can say anything about him.

Karl Marx essentially said the same thing way back when, ever heard of the "opiate of the people"

Nice to see theism deftly extracted from the age-old 'my religion is best' debate.

This guy obviously lost his way a long time ago and there is good reason he is a 'Former' priest. Why he even still bothers to wear the garb is curious.

Anyways, It's not about control, It's about hope, faith, and love.

I've theorized most of this for years but it's nice to hear someone people will find credible say it.

I predict this'll be a long thread. Honesty FTW!

"I don't know how the cosmos and life came into being, but I do know it wasn't by the hand of a deity."

How exactly do you know this? Were you there? You don't know the answer, but you know that everyone else is just wrong.

Good grief.

For once, a preacher speaking the truth rather than the Truth.

With his description, why must one even need to have to worship a 'god' figure at that point? Was there a creator of all things? If so, where did that creator come from? We can't understand how everything came into being, but to assume that there is a consciousness that created us, and is watching over us, is rather pompous. I don't know how the cosmos and life came into being, but I do know it wasn't by the hand of a deity.
