    An article I found on another message board, I thought it to be an interesting read.
    Docterman makes his attempt to explain why he has concluded the impossibility of "the Christian God".

    Why the Christian God is Impossible
    by Chad Docterman

    Introduction

    Christians consider the existence of their God to be an obvious truth that no sane man could deny. I strongly disagree with this assumption not only because evidence for the existence of this presumably ubiquitous yet invisible God is lacking, but because the very nature Christians attribute to this God is self-contradictory.

    I regret the inoperability(sp?) of the link.
    I too tried to ferret out this link as well.

    I pulled it from another message board, similar to this one.

    I'm not sure if it is appropriate to mention another message board on this
    board.

    At your request, I will share where I got if from however.

    Please, it's a requirement to provide a source link once an article has been posted in full, for credit purposes.

    I got it from cocoalounge.org
    http://cocoalounge.org/viewthread.php?tid=53316

    Keep in mind:

    That is one man's attempt, chad that is, to make his case for why he has concluded the impossibility of "the Christian God".

    For example, if these were my words, then it would not be a matter of "credibility", or lack thereof, but whether or not the reader agrees or is indifferent altogether.

    As I've said in the outset, I thought it to be an interesting read and cared (or
    dared, lol) to share it.

    I Fully understand this is chad's view and not yours and not mainstream, but one man's view.

    Introduction -- What is implied by the concept of "an intelligently designed universe"?
    What does it mean on a grand scale to assert that the universe is the product of an intelligent designer? In a scientific age that exalts rationalism and chance, what empirical evidence could possibly support such a claim? As humans contemplating the immense complexity of the cosmos, might certain features of the universe suggest that our "home" has in fact been carefully crafted for our benefit? Can our own human experiences of creativity and design illuminate the concept of a cosmic designer? These questions underlie the discussion of intelligent design theory, a resurgent area of inquiry by both Christian and secular scientists in search of a reasonable explanation for the marvelous complexity of the universe.....>>>>>

    :10500:There is no separate christian GOD. Judaism, Christianity and Islam all pray to the same one. Thus the initial premise of this thread is faulty.
