    Default Atheist vs Christian Debate

    http://youtu.be/HlriRAGurKE

    So I thought this was probably one of the most compelling debates about the existence of God I have seen in a while.

    If you actually have the time, watch it....

    1. We must take the profit out of war.
    2. We must permit the youth of the land who would bear arms to decide whether or not there should be war.
    3. We must limit our military forces to home defense purposes."

    Except they are debating Christianity and atheism.... did you happen to notice in minute three she mispronounced extraordinary as extra-ordinary... Good points though. Joe is sure to hate it though because the athiest is a conservative instead of a liberal hippie....

    How can an Atheist believe in ghosts? Wouldn't one have to believe in an afterlife of some sort to believe in ghosts?

    I don't know any atheists who claim to believe in ghosts; but I know quite a few Christians who do... when the doctrines of the very churches they follow that that who are saved (Protestant) or die in a state of grace (Catholic, Eastern Orthodox) will either go to heaven or their souls will lie dormant until Judgement Day (7th Day Adventists), and that the unsaved or those who die in a state of mortal sin will either go to hell or that their souls will be annihilated (Jehovah's Witnesses, several other denominations).

    I don't know of a single Christian denomination that believes in "ghosts." Yet, there are plenty of Christians who do believe in them.

    Are you trying to play a semantics game, or are you stupid? Or both?

    One body has functioning organs and the other doesn't.
