If anything, this just strengthens my point; that the human race learns from its mistakes and changes the world accordingly.
    The horrors of trench warfare, extreme militarism, advanced weapon technology, and the first mass death Europeans experienced among themselves (not to mention the influx of new ideas from the likes of Nietzche, Freud, and Darwin to name a few and how war profoundly shaped family life) suggested to many at the time that the world wasn't what it seemed and that perhaps it wasn't based on any set of "natural" laws (oh haiiii post-modernism).

    I am quite certain that you did not answer the questions because you cannot answer them without saying things that would make you look rather naive, evasive, inconsistent, irrational or delusional. While I can understand that you want to avoid looking like that, I have to conclude that, at least in this regard, you really are like that.

    I've already made clear that my reasoning is based on divine revelation and that if I am wrong I am clearly delusional. You're questions were redundant. I can only conclude that you are asking redundant questions because you want to make me out to be naive, irrational and delusional.

    Your conclusion is correct. I was not sure, however, at which point you surrender reason and resort to divine revelation.

    Well I never said you weren't honest.

    I should add that I didn't answer the questions not because it made me uncomfortable. If I believed that it was possible to reason to God then I wouldn't give up my faith I would just study aquinas and become a catholic. I referred you to Peguy, because I felt that if you did want to discuss reasoning your way to God you could discuss it with him since he's far more familiar with natural theology than I.

    Somehow I believe that Peguy would say that arguments about faith make for good comedy rather than argue about faith.

    It sounds to me like you consider the concept of divine revelation an absurdity. Do you consider it absurd that a person may know somebody you don't, who told them something which you don't know?

    Do you believe there's nobody in Argentina named Robert because you haven't met him?
    You lose.

    I don't believe in religion. I mean, yeah it's there, it's done some good (and quite some bad) over the centuries...but the only good I see of it now is for people who use it for their own coping mechanisms or whatever. It doesn't make sense to me, but it may make sense to others, and I really don't care if it does or not for you, just don't shove your beliefs down my throat.

    6 people have responded thus far saying they're ENTP and serious about Christianity yet not a single one has posted a comment.

    I wasn't trying to start a faith debate as much as I was trying to find a Christian ENTP who didn't mind having a conversation on the topic. Hell, I'll take any Ne dom as my main question relates to Ne and faith.
