“There's an infinite number of things that some people at one time or another have believed in, and an infinite number of things that nobody has believed in. If there's not the slightest reason to believe in any of those things, why bother? The onus is on somebody who says, I want to believe in God, Flying Spaghetti Monster, fairies, or whatever it is. It is not up to us to disprove it.”

Richard Dawkins

    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

    Tech – Since you are our resident man of faith, could you please take a break from witnessing to us and explain why your belief in God is more rational than my belief in leprechauns?

    Prayer to the Chief Leprechaun (Bob): Please, Bob, let us not be out of tonic for tomorrow is Monday.

    You don’t really expect him to answer do you Captain? Tech is great at sermonizing, but horrible at actually explaining anything in a rational way. Of course he is smart enough to realize it, along with the fact that he has no real case, which is why he typically refrains from answering.

    If you can’t disprove it,why would it be up to me to prove it? I’m quite content and satisfied with my beliefs.No doubt I don’t know it all but I’m satisfied.I have my wonderful Savior to thank for that. But for the grace of God I would indeed be lost.I want to Thank everyone on site,because you made me realize that more than ever.Just how good God Is.

    Yeah, by that logic Tech must believe in fairies, gremlins, Santa Claus, etc. There is absolutely no supposedly fictional character that can be disproven by that logic.
