You were the friendly guy at the gas station on PCH who was filling up his truck. I watched you talking to a young man who was also filling up his truck. The topic was how great it is to be a Christian. "I used to be an atheist," you said. "I used to think it was all science." Then you laughed. "And to think science teaches us that we are evolved from bacteria when Jesus was the son of God." I hadn't thought about it that way before. When you were done talking to the other guy, you gave me a pamphlet that has changed my life. I, too, am done with science. There is no way I descended from bacteria. Seriously, do bacteria even have babies? I don't think so. But if they do, they aren't human babies, that's for sure. That's why it's impossible for humans to come from monkeys because when is the last time you saw a monkey give birth to a person? Science? What a load. Thank you for changing my life, gas station preacher man, and God bless.

more garbage from people that worship a book with myriad of conflicting stories so a person can choose one to supposedly prove their point. This book was written by men and it was rewritten many times by other men, then there was the King James edition that completely changed it all again The sole purpose of this book of fairy tales written by men is to control other men. to do their bidding.

Has anyone ever met a Born Again Christian who DIDN'T "hit bottom" due to drugs, alcohol, depression, prison etc? 

All christians (no sic) and other religious people are either born again or a victim of brainwashing when they were kids.

No mentally healthy objective rational person would be religious unless they fell into one of those two groups above.

"God is an INVISIBLE Spirit that cannot be seen by human eyes" - Jesus (The Son of God) - So who is this God person anyway (if he's invisible and cannot be seen then he or it does not exist. ???? 

The last time that I looked you were a human unless you are an alien from outer space.

No one has ever said that we evolved from monkeys. Who can take you seriously when you show non-understanding at such a basic level?
