Questions for Christians (and other Religious People)

1. What are the fundamentals of your faith?

2. Do you maintain that your individual and/or denominational approach to religion is fundamentally sound and correct? Do you believe that your way of worship or belief is superior to that of others? Do you consider beliefs that differ from yours wrong? Do you believe that people who believe differently from you are destined for eternal damnation? Please provide evidence from multiple sources if your answer is "yes" for any of the above.

3. When making a point in argument, the burden of proof is on the speaker. Faith, by its very nature, does not require evidence. Logically, this is the weakest stance possible in argument. In light of this, how can anyone claim the truth of one religion or sect over another?

4. What is the ultimate goal of your religion?

5. Where is the moral, logical justification for imposing unproven religious beliefs on populations which may not accept those beliefs?

6. How can anyone refute concepts, ideas or facts with which they are unfamiliar? How can you dismiss science if you've never had a real science class or read even a "popular" science book?

7. Why do you regard the "founding fathers" as holy and the U.S. Constitution as scripture when the hypocrisy of both is so easily shown?
