    100 Seemingly Sound Reasons to Reject Christianity in Our Time

    1) The central person isn't here, with us, on the earth now; 2) The whole idea of Christianity seems quaint and out of step with today's world; 3) Faith in some kind of spirit being is required; I trust things I can see and feel; 4)

    Note: In Brainstorming, Phase One calls for an objective listing of options and alternatives, no matter how outlandish or off the wall. Second Phase, begins the sorting process to isolate the possible and to discard those options which die of their own ponderous weight during discussion and fall by the way. Third, requires intense discussions of all ideas which have survived the first two phases for the purpose of deciding relative merit, timely implementation viability and marketing ease. Let's get close to 50 to 75 on the table before getting cranky and hostile. Rather, let's do as Ben Hogan advocated in his little paperback on improving your golf. To paraphrase, "Go for distance first; then, worry about getting the ball in the fairway". (gb)

    What flavor of Christianity do you have in mind? That is, what are the basic tenets?

    4) Basic tenets of Christianity pose problems because some people who say they're Christians behave worse than common criminals.

    7) All kinds of miracles supposedly happened quite a long while ago; how can a person be expected to believe an event he or she's never seen.

    Hopefully that isn't what you took away from my post.

    Any chance of you answering my question?

    8) So many questions many serious thinkers have are left unanswered by the christian bible.

    It seems that if their god really wanted us to know him, he would have been more explicit.

    Mind me asking just what is your motivation for such a thread?

    This doesn't seem like the type of thread a Christian would start.

    No, not at all. Why on earth would it seem strange to make a joint effort to get any and all going-in opinions, firmly held points of view and unspoken questions on the table before examining them in the critical light of day? Foolish and unproductive course of action too often pursued involves ignoring where thoughtful seekers are in their quest; tossing up a barrage of information (in and out of context); and with it attempting to browbeat people with practised lines of pat "witnessing" info from somebody's talking points or, even worse, inaccurate interpretations and applications of scripture to see which party can succeed in being the loudest of the loud. Result: lots of heat... and little light. What purpose, pray tell, does that serve? (gb)

    9) Biggie tenent of christianity is that some special man died by crucifixion on a bloody hill

    before a clamoring crowd. That was nothing more than capital punishment back in the day.
