I'm Done with Answers in Genesis

I am. I'm never visiting that shit website again. Apparently they invade the privacy of their visitors with programs that sneak in and record your browsing history. See the figure on page 9 of this paper. PZ Myers discusses this here.

Besides, I've grown weary of seeing them use the same arguments over and over again. This article which I wrote a while back debunks about 95% of the material on the site, because they are so repetitive.

Sometime in the future I might organize an index of my finest posts on the subject, but other than that, I'm not wasting another second of my life on that website. However, I will still be blogging here.

Perhaps this requires a name change, the title of this blog is very misleading.

I agree, although it's quite obvious that the author of the site is an atheist. That much is clear. You have to wonder, don't you? Why is it atheists spend so much time trying to prove and convince people that something isn't there? I'm not going to get into a debate with you. I hold that there is a Holy God. One of us is wrong. Now if that were just the case, that all we affected were just ourselves, that would be fine. However each of us with our blogs and other writings try to convince others that our point of view is correct, me Christian, him atheist. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, right? What have I lost? Not a thing. If atheism is wrong, then not only is he in for a shock, but he's led a whole lot of people down the same path and they are in for a shock. I can even put that aside though. Real Christians (not the make-believers that go around telling people they are Christians and don't know what it is really about) have a kind of joy, even when things seem to be falling apart. Atheists, to my observation, always seem to be upset at something. It's like they have a bad case of gas or something. Sorry to ramble buddy, but just like you are trying to get "us" to think, I'm trying to get you guys to think. Oh, and your theory about time, if I understand it correct, is incorrect. There is a time where time doesn't exist, at least not the kind of time we know. Everything happens at the same time, but that's a little much to explain here.

... because so many people spend so many time, twice as much on Sundays, believing that something not there is?

That's called "Pascal's Wager", look it up. Using that argument opens you up to much, much worse possibilities.

Don't know about you, dude, but I'm having a great time.

And besides, aren't you upset at the idea of all those atheists being out there? Or all those unsaved people who are going to Hell? Or are you not upset at such a thing?

... you came here to explain that you're not going to explain something?
