    It depends on what they imagine He wants them to do. Ask around and read the newspaper for answers.

    Are you asking if people think that the reality of faith in a supreme being as an aspect of human history has been a positive, negative, or neutral factor?

    How Do We Know that We Exist?

    "An answer to the question 'How do we know that we exist?' is not easy to articulate. Existence is one of those truths which philosophers call self-evident truths, that is to say, a truth that one cannot demonstrate. In general, the most one can do about self-evident truths is to show that it is absurd not to accept them as true. One can provide explanations and argue for a self-evident truth but in the final analysis one either accepts it or not by way of choice."

    lame? i think not. id say very relevant to your statement.

    With all due respect, you've misread an inconvertible, hard question put directly to those

    of atheist persuasion among us. Perhaps also a tad too subtlely stated on my part.

    True... and the "we" in your reply is inconclusive of believers and unbelievers in Christ.

    Greetings, friend. Self evident in my view. If the time honored game of chess was only a figment and didn,t exist what difference

    would it make for people to subscribe to a "chess in name only" internet site just to jawbone in the forums? Am I wrong?

    We possess self awareness (as illustrated in your question), self determination free will and an immortal soul.
