Ok. That is a typical unbelievers reaction. I’m sure my comment made you feel some type of way.  But all honesty it is true with all facts to back that up. The Bible was written for believers (Hebrews). If anyone reads this book with a closed mind then the outcome will be limited. It introduces the Spirit to the human body. If you would like we can go into detail.  One misunderstanding I would like to start with is this. Many ppl think when Jesus comes back he is going to judge our sins. That cannot be further from the Truth. Believers Faith comes because we know Sin was dealt with when Jesus Died on the cross. It’s no longer important. The only thing that remains is the consequences of sin in this earthly realm.  “And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭9:27-28‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Hey, if you feel it makes you a better person then go for it. I and many others do not feel we need an outdated morally contradictory book to 'help us deal with our sins', and certainly see no value in quoting passages of the bible to claim the veracity of the bible...

(That's called circular reasoning)  ::)

Well I was not suggesting what book you should read I was just commenting on this guys book. He suggested that God did not exist and he had proof. My take is simply if you don’t believe in a thing you won’t understand the thing.  Circulars reasoning you say well Im sorry if everything comes back around to the Creator.

"if you don’t believe in a thing you won’t understand the thing"

Utter rubbish. If you require 'belief' all you'll get is confirmation bias. If you can't put aside your 'belief' in a subject you can not possibly be objective about it. And if you can't be objective your view is totally meaningless.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

A real person? Not a real person? Whatever he facts are, those who believe are allowing people who lived a couple of thousand years ago to mess with their minds now.

It doesn't. In fact nothing comes back to a creator. The simple fact is that nobody knows why the Universe we perceive exists at all and nobody ever has. Our ancestors made up stories to explain existence and those stories evolved into the myths that we now call religions and personal faith (delusions).

Humans made up gods. Why God?

This is to everyone,  I am a student of the scriptures, not a student of Religion so let’s get that straight. The part of scripture that many don’t understand is how the Spirit moved from person to person enlightening those that were worthy of carrying His message to the world. Bringing Humans from the darkness to the light. Inputing in them a moral compass which in turn guides our path. Now you can say I’m full of it and it’s just the universe, but even Those of you that don’t believe this knows there is more to the Bible than just old Ancient Men killing and taking over land. The scriptures that I am speaking of allows a person to actually follow the spirit through the journey of time. This is the real Faith.

First warning for preaching. This sort of shit isn't welcome here.

re: circular reasoning.  Many, many years ago I was reading an article in Ms. magazine and the author defended circular reasoning because "nature moves in a circle".  It was the last straw.  I still consider myself very much a feminist, but as of that moment I was out of the Women's Movement.
