Welcome to the "Christian Bronies" Group!


This is a place for Christian Bronies to have multiple discussions on what it means to be a Christ follower in a group of people who, more often than not, do not believe in and/or Christ, and also a place to just worship freely. Tell us about how Christ is working in your life, bring us prayer requests, talk about your struggles, whatever you want to bring forward in a Christian setting.

If you do not follow Christ, you are more than welcome to come and chat with us. Question us, challenge us, or just hang out and talk pony without the vulgarity that can come from this fandom. We're not exclusive here. :twilightsmile:

That's understandable

I'm not christian, but I'm trying to be nicer to those who are.

Hopefully everything still worked out!

Science also can't tell us if we were made a popped out of thin air.

Can you rephrase this sentence? I’m not sure if you are ESL or just not putting much care into your posts, but I’m not sure what you mean here. I have an idea of what you mean but I don’t want to put words in your mouth.

Science can't answer everything in the world.

Ok, sure, science hasn’t yet answered every question and there are some questions it will probably never answer. It is still the single most reliable and demonstrable method to understanding reality ever. It seems like your are suggesting that the fact that it isn’t perfect and doesn’t have all the answers means that it’s some how not useful or inferior to your mythology. This is the perfect world logical fallacy. If, for the sake of argument, we pretend that science is completely usless then that still doesn’t do anything to prove your god or any other gods and acting like it does is another logical fallacy (the argument from ignorance).

It can't answer what who made or how the world was made.

I reject this statement for two reasons.
1. You are asserting that science can’t discover the origin of the universe. Please demonstrate this claim that science cannot ever answer this question. I’m not saying it can, I’m waiting for the evidence to be presented either way, but when you say it can’t then you have the burden of proof.
2. You assume that it was a who and not a what. Please give a good reason for this assumption without relying on an argument from ignorance fallacy.

We don't know the the exact answer.

I completely agree, that’s why I’m an atheist. We don’t know what the answer is to how the universe formed or how life formed or many other questions, so pretending that we do by inventing bearded men in the Sky is intellectually dishonest (unless you have evidence of said bearded man).

Hmmm, depending on what you mean I may or may not disagree.
What do you mean by ‘every’? I think you meant ‘everything’, but even that word is vague, please elaborate.
When you use the word science, what are you referring to? What do you understand the term ‘science’ to mean?

Hopefully your summer vacation was both busy and fun!!

Someone is calling the kettle black... or silver. I've never seen a black kettle.

In the name of Jesus; get behind us Satan!

Why do you say that? Is freedom of speech something you don't support?

You need to shut your bitch ass mouth, boy.

Turns out it's not a camping trip but I'm still discouraged from using my phone.

Of course I care about if my faith is real or not. If it's true then I need to keep on the straight and narrow to paradise. If my faith is real then... well... you've read Dante's Inferno. I believe torture doesn't stagnate but evolves with time. I assume Hell is much, much worse than discribed.

Life is short and the afterlife is forever. Eternal. I kinda want to believe there's a gray area: purgatory. My faith has no gray area so either my soul leaves my fat butt and I walk in paradise or I burn among other things.

If my faith is a lie then nothing happens... or I get reincarnated into a tree or a cow or another jerk with a heart of gold, etc. Knowing about McDonalds; I'd like to be a tree.

EDIT: :yay:

Yeah, Tuvok is awesome!

What are the odds of finding a bill? Probably pretty low, but is it impossible to do without gods help? How do you determine when it really is a coincidence and when God intervened?


No, atheism has no dogmas or tenants or beliefs. It is only a lack of accepting of theistic claims. I don't bash Christians at all, I just ask questions and point out logical fallacies. I have had conversations in RL and online with many different faiths.


On the subject of prayer, there are two ways of looking at it. On a personal level you can pray for help finding your car keys or pray for your headache to go away. Both those things can happen but have you demonstrated that god was involved. It's like if I have a lucky coin when I roll a dice, did the coin make any difference?

The second way to approach prayer is to actually test it on a large scale. Here's 3 examples where that failed.

This doesn't prove that prayer doesn't work, maybe you are all doing it wrong. It just means you don't have proof it does work. It's like magic, the fact that I can't do real magic with my Harry Potter toy wand doesn't mean there aren't real wizards with real magic hidden somewhere, it just means that I have no good reason to believe magic is real for the moment. Prayer and god are in the same boat.

Does Jesus love everybody? How do you know he even exists? You keep referring to bible verses, why do you think the bible is special compared to any other ancient document? Proverbs definitely has some good nuggets of advice, but so does the Odyssey and Captain Kirk.


You didn't really answer my question earlier. Do you actually care if what you believe is true? Are you open to changing your mind given the right evidence?

I do care about truth and I am open to changing my mind about basically anything.

Enjoy your trip and be safe! I look forward to continue our conversation when you return!
