IS it because you have not seen him or heard from him or he has not shown you
any miracles ???? OR Do You Believe Only What You Can See ??????
Is there a way of arriving at a satisfying answer to the question? ?????

‘ Is there a way of arriving at a satisfying answer to the question?’

No.
Nope. I never even think about such gubbins. I'll have another treble whiskey please!
I keep asking the same questions about mermaids and unicorns and fairies.
Only the author of a work of fiction can kill off it's main fictional character. Last time I read that particular work of fiction/fantasy, it's main character was still alive. And still creating misery and mayhem. I guess the author couldn't find a suitable way of 'offing' him.
I have more than enough scientific knowledge to see that there is no need for a god.

The whole notion that something complex enough to consciously design everything we see somehow already existed without explanation is ludicrous.
God isn't dead, he just doesn't want to get involved.

//Do You Believe Only What You Can See ?????? //

Not necessarily - but I like a bit of a hint that what I'm expected to believe has some substance.
locusts - // Is there a way of arriving at a satisfying answer to the question? ?????//

One that would satisfy you and your fellow uber-Christians on here?

Not a chance!!
// OR Do You Believe Only What You Can See ?????? //

Not at all.

I can't see that the earth orbits the sun, but I believe it.

But that is scientific fact - not really your playground, is it.
God is dead, and to those who have killed Him, they have replaced Him.

Material Naturalism means that all that there is, or ever has been, or ever will be, are contained within a box, which also contains the explanation for everything in the box, and the box itself.

Also included, is science, and those who c!aim to know enough science to believe only in the box.
Locusts - The atheists here are truly gods in their own right.
There is nothing higher than them.
They rule in this life. '' Eat, drink, for tomorrow we die.''
Nothing you can ever say will convince them otherwise.
If you try, you become a mere plaything for them, a source of entertainment, to be ridiculed.
Don't try.
You have proclaimed a message, and only the Holy Spirit can call them to take heed.
If they reject it, as I'm sure they will, you have done your bit, and they are a day closer to knowing the truth.

{ THELAND } The atheists here are truly gods in their own right.
Locusts IN Matthew 28 .19 Jesus gave us a command to go and make disciples of all people in all Nations ? so therefore we should follow his instructions // And not give up--?? look at Paul he was a persecutor of the Jewish nation?? --- THOSE preaching on Jesus behalf // but Jesus came to him and asked him {paul} - why are you persecuting me-- and HE come to realise he made a big mistake in his life--And there will be a time when they will have to recognise GOD .? because in (DRA) revelation 21.3.4.5 is says the tabernacle of God {And they shall be his people} will be with Mankind and they will have to know me ??? {WAHWEH }  (DRA) 1 CORINTHIANS .8 ./ 5 6. 7.For although there be that are called gods . { But only one true almighty God}
Question Author
naomi24 } but I like a bit of a hint
{locusts}you made a went to college and had a wonderful five or six years teaching programme but you still doesn't qualify?? you to know it all ?? we still need help to be guided and to take on the extra knowledge to understand or to ponder over different problems. (NIV) ACT .8.27.30 I think you need to explore these verses then ask myself do I understand what I am reading.
Just accept that there is no such thing as this god thingy.
More rubbish from a dubious work of fiction.
How can God be dead when he never existed in the first place?
Theland, //The atheists here are truly gods in their own right.//

If you believe the bible you would be almost right.

//And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."// Genesis 3:22

Makes you wonder why he bothered to plant those trees doesn't it?

Incidentally, Theland, who do you think God meant when he said “one of us”? I have asked you that before but you’ve not replied.

Locusts, //you to know it all ??//

I don’t claim to know it all and I never have. I do, however, read the bible and when it tells me that God made mistakes, and that he wasn’t omnipotent - in fact on occasions he was rather weak - I believe it. Why don’t you?

//we still need help to be guided//

Whose help do you need? The help of other men? You asked Goodlife to explain something to you recently. Why do you think he knows more about it than others? After all, different factions of Christianity have different answers don’t they - for example Theland's version differs significantly from Goodlife's version - so who’s right?
Question Author
{ LOCUSTS } Yes you are good at quote in scriptures// do you really understand what he's trying to say and the reason ??

NAOM 24 //And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."// Genesis 3:22

LOCUSTS it seems to me you've missed the most important part of the scriptures //Genesis 3:3.5 1- Willfully disodeyed {disobedience}—2 they stole which did not belong to them. 3 or you will die—4 selfish love for themselves {thoughtlessness /}Gen3.3 .’”
how then //?? The man has now become like one of us, /???
human or spirit // They were created in God's image ??
literally eyes OPEN . Was already open and they could see so how could //? SHE AND he eyes be opened knowing good and bad/????
tree of Life//? they were expelled from the Garden of Eden so they could not eat of the Tree of Life ./ ? WHY

NAOM 24 /Locusts, //you to know it all ??// NO I do not know it all
it has taken me 70 years to know what I know on the Bible and I'm still learning and trying to understand what it is teaching me , AND I learn something new everyday. with help

///so who’s right? GODS word is the authority on the matter
///so who’s right? GODS word is the authority on the matter ///

I have been exposed to the word of God same as everybody else and somehow he's convinced me he doesn't exist. I suggest God starts doing a better job as he'll only lose followers this way.
Locusts, if God’s word is the authority why did you need to ask goodlife what he thought?
