    Evidentialist

    I hold to the key assumptions that the universe exists and that we can learn something about it. Beyond those two basal assumptions, without which we can literally go nowhere, I hold that no idea should be held up as knowledge without the evidence to back it up. The stronger...

    You Know It...

    If you try to insult me of my beliefs I will fire back. I don't like intolerance of religious beliefs, race, gender, sexuality, anything. I will defend my beliefs and I am a good arguer. I won't hold my tounge. Fight me if you dare.

    Why Bad Things Happen

    If theres anything I understand about God better than anything, its why he allows bad things to happen. I'm so, so tired of hearing rude atheists saying stuff like "if God is so loving why do bad things happen to good people?" They could easily figure out the answer to...

    My new found beliefs are based on my

    experiences over the last few years. Some would call that synchronicity, but I believe it's more than that. The experiences I've had have all pointed me in the same direction. To me, they have been too many and too specific to be purely random. It's hard to explain the nature...

    I enjoy defending my beliefs. At times it is difficult to defend my beliefs because I do not belong to any religious group so therefore I don't have a book of some sort to provide evidence for what I am saying. I prefer it this way because it's a matter of logically explaining...
