  1. Like I said. No True Scotsman. My faith was quite literally the most important thing for me. But, you see., I got curious. So, I started studying things aside from my Bible. And guess what I found? The Bible was wrong, about a great many things. You see, that was when I realized that my belief was no longer a matter of will. I realized that I would rather be accurate than believe what I know to be false. Oh, and Jim, obviously I need to explain something else to you. I have been an Atheist since I was 20. I am now 39. that means I have been wearing the same "garment" for 19 years. You see, I can't fake it 'til I make it. Now, I can only believe that which has sufficient evidence to support it. If what you believe is out of faith, that's fine and up to you. But you don't get to tell anyone what they believe, or how they do it. That is for them to decide.
  2. It's either a yes or no answer. But experiences are subjective. Everyone perceives things differently. That's just how the human brain works. Most of what you will hear on this subject some incomprehensible gibberish about how someone heard about someone seeing or doing or being healed from something. Plus in controlled conditions, absolutely no one that we can tell has ever had a real supernatural experience. Again, anecdotes, etc. Anecdotes are just stories. They aren't even close to evidence. I used to be a Christian. (Please don't use the No True Scotsman fallacy. It's bull, and everyone knows it.)I loved it. No joke. I did everything I did to bring "souls" to Jesus. I was pretty good at it too. But times change. So do people. What I'm trying to say is this: Be wary of people who claim to have seen the impossible, or can do the impossible. Think of it this way. If faith healing worked, hospital rooms would be full of praying and no modern medicine would even be necessary. If something sounds improbable, it probably is.
