Yes! I do understand as my sons went to a Lutheran school to do their high school years.
So welcome and Stephen has said it all, so there is no need for me to repeat it. Enjoy the discussions BTW The Rainbow Serpent is part of my peoples mythology to explain the landscape of the land that they lived in.
If you are an Atheist truly welcome, i hope you enjoy the contacts you make on AU. I hope to speak to you soon.It can be an upsetting time for people who have decided to become nonbelievers, both for you and your family try not to burn any bridges with your family after all they are your loved ones.
You know its rather hilarious that you have to prove god exists. What is wrong with god himself proving that he exists because were he to do that then there would not be any need of sites like this because then everyone would know that he is real and not just a figment of some man's mind. You know the other funny thing were god himself prove that he was real and existed then there would be no preachers living million dollar mansions, flying in their own private aircraft and no preacher man asking for handouts with the reward for the giver a place in heaven. But since that is not the reality which then can only lead one to the deductive conclusion that he does not exist and that he is a figment of a man's mind.
Glory to the rainbow serpent!
By the way stick to guidelines and you will enjoy the discussions and you never know you may learn something of value to yourself but only you will know it!
