not because of some bet like the Bible claims


You've grievously misunderstood the story of Job.

"I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept his claim to be God."
-CS Lewis


I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: Im ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I dont accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.

.... Don't use such dishonest debate tactics in the future.


"God Exists"
- Richard Dawkins

God exists, if only in the form of a meme with high survival value, or infective power, in the environment provided by human culture.

I was giving him the benefit of the doubt, that perhaps he saw it quoted somewhere and simply thought it was an unpopular viewpoint by Lewis...of which he does have several, to be fair.

"Within the Gospel of Jesus Christ there is room and place for every truth thus far learned by man or yet to be made known."
