Why is it Christians cannot agree to the point where they have condemned each other to hell and/or slaughtered each other because of doctrinal differences that other Christians don't think are essential for salvation? My answer is that Christianity is man made, and as such, doctrinal differences are due to different human ways of understanding the Bible. There is no divine mind behind the Bible, otherwise God should have communicated his will much better than he supposedly did. That's the major reason why there is no doctrinal Christian unity. These different doctrinal understandings continue to be used by denominational leaders to differentiate between Christianities for financial gain and power. Christian, what's your answer?That does it. I'm giving up Christianity. Brilliant objection, Mr. Loftus...just brilliant.
But wait. Everyone disagrees with each other's worldview...so i'll give up my worldview! Or maybe just the concept of "worldview" altogether, since no one can agree. But then again, many disagree with each other's view of reality. Perhaps reality isn't real? So i'll give up epistemology too! And logic, who knows anything about that?
Mr. Loftus, the universe just got a little bit more intelligent because of your objection, and I applaud you for bringing the universe such honor and glory. Praise science, and praise atheism.
