"Then it is not faith - see the dictionary definition." Circular argument. Trust me, people's faith grow and evolve.
"your religion is still stuck 2000 years in the past... it has not moved on when faced with more complex and greater amounts of information." No, the understanding of the church is also constantly evolving as it faces new challenges, such as slavery, women's rights, nuclear war.
" Those who are secure in themselves do not need faith" which is based on what?
"What is it about the world that scares you so much that you need faith" Why do you think I have faith because I am scared of something? Maybe it is that you associate faith with your own fears and insecurities?
"What is missing from your life that leaves you so incomplete that you have to fill a void with an imaginary friend? I do find this a real puzzle"
Now this, my friend, is where you start asking the correct questions! For me it was simply seeking truth. No fears, no insecurities. Just a desire to know what was true.
"" Ironically, the irony you saw was caused by completely misunderstanding what I was saying." So I actually got it right then... how ironic..." I'm sorry, I've no idea what you are getting at here - no doubt you will put that down to my inability to see irony as having a faith precludes me from this?
