Since he *knows* he is doing it he must be considered a liar. Here... I'll open "Reasons Skeptics Should Consider Christianity" to a random page... I hit page 105.

My own opinion is that people "see" exactly what they want to see rather than what is really there. They want to see a miracle or have been programmed to believe in miracles and so they do. They tell a story about what they believed they saw, someone writes it down

On 03-03-98 16:43, William Putnam penned the following to Lynda Bustilloz re: Atheistic Knowledge In other words, if someone isn't already soaked in superstition then your ability to offer objective evidence fails? Doesn't say much for the objectivity of your evidence. LOL! People will believe ANYTHING, Bill... No "God" contacted anyone... unless you think hallucinations are real.

On 03-03-98 16:38, William Putnam penned the following to Martin Goldberg re: Laurie Appleton So being a liar is OK as long as you're polite about it? I suppose if child rapers say "thankyou" afterwards that's OK too? So as long as someone is "comfortable in his relationship with God" they can rape, pillage, murder, lie, cheat, sell snake oil disguised as "religion" or do pretty much what they see as

On 03-03-98 19:46, Chuck Slotter penned the following to Sean Mccullough re: Presumptiousness of Athe If he's not lying then he is incredibly ignorant and more than a little dishonest. How would you choose to describe him... as a liar or as ignorant? Either way he's no authority on anything except how to fleece the sheep. After I read "Reasons Why Skeptics Should Consider Christianity" I figured he spelled "shouldn't" wrong

On 03-03-98 19:58, Chuck Slotter penned the following to Sean Mccullough re: Presumptiousness of Athe If you put a bunch of Bible Believers into separate rooms you wouldn't get a consensus either, except maybe that God exists in their minds. They sure won't have the Bible stories straight. The "big picture" is that religion is the divisive wedge that drives people of differing beliefs apart. Go ahead, Chuck... make my day.

On 03-06-98 11:51, William Putnam penned the following to John Musselwhite re: Atheistic Knowledge I MUST equate them, Bill. I consider the belief in gods of any kind to be the result of the rather irrational belief that the outcome of an event can be influenced by something not logically related to it. On the other hand the deist "nous" is the result of rational thought, not superstition.

On 03-04-98 13:52, William Putnam penned the following to Dave Hamilton re: The Inquisition Is the accumulation of wealth and fame the ultimate goal? Personally I'd rather accumulate family, friends and a reasonable amount of happiness. Wealth and fame are actually fairly simple to accumulate. All you have to do is be a complete asshole and step on anyone that gets in the way of your goal. No

On 03-08-98 13:16, William Putnam penned the following to John Musselwhite re: Atheistic Knowledge I gave you *my* position on it, Bill. Gee... funny you should mention that. That's a logical fallacy, Bill. Do I need to point it out to you? It was the natural tendency of man to think God was angry when there was thunder and lightning too. No... just some men. Particularly those whose grasp of reality

There are so many different interpretations and beliefs about "scripture" that ANY of them could be the correct one, and desperate people will grasp at any straw if it might "save" them. These people do great harm to Christianity. Including the heresy of Christianity, Bill? Funny you should mention that... B-}) Unfortunately, when they fail they often
