What if...

Imagine you met someone who believed in a person who was someones only son, there father was a carpenter, they had holes in there hands where nails had been and they could do magical things. Would you think this person was stupid? Well suppose I told you the person believed in jebus. Youd think they were intelligent, right? What if i told you that the person actually believe pinnocio was a real person. Then youd say they were stupid, right? EVen tho the only difference is in the name.

So the only thing that according to xians determins if something is stupid or not is the name of the person who they worship. How do you get from 'but the thing i believe in isnt called pinocio' to 'therefore my sky daddy exists'?

I'm confused Mike. How does your analogy reduce to Collodi's fictional character, Pinocchio vs. Jesus?

I'm a little confused too. Are you asking if we'd accept somebody who believed the Gospel story, except called God's son 'Pinnocho' instead of Jesus? I actually would have no problem believeing said person is saved.

I suppose its not my fault your to stupid to understand my highly logical arguments.

Thank you Mike, for your gracious (if not arrogant)understanding.

However, would you care to explain?

I am wondering if you have mixed in the concept of Psalm 14:1 into your argument (i'm meaning here, that perhaps some Christian has said to you, that a fool has said in his heart that there is no God. The claim in Psalm 14:1 and 53:1 is believed by both Jews and Christians, so if this was sorta where you were going, it doesn't follow, since (presently) Jews and Christians are in disagreement regarding Jesus' Divinity.

But, then again, i've probably just misunderstood you.

Probably, Johnny, probably.
