you don't seem absolutely certain.

A_W, what exactly was this poll intended to measure? Just curious.

I have no doubts about the resurrection. I am 100% convinced it did NOT happen.

You were quoting me on the magnitude of the lie - I couldn't think of a bigger lie, hence the 'possibly', I'm open to hearing about a bigger one.

I'm certain that A_W was expecting option #3 to receive the overwhelming majority of votes, hence his puzzled reactions to the current results. 33-18 thus far.

"Convinced" is not certiin.

We'll all find out soon enough for certain-I'm sure.

Or you could boil it down to no vs. yes.

No - 35
Yes - 16

Nobody can be absolutely certain, there is always the possibility - however remote - that a claim is true. That doesn't mean that we should take all claims as equally likely.

Then there is the possibility that Jesus was born of a virgin, was crucified then resurrected before ascending into the sky. If we grant all those as facts it doesn't prove he was the son of God or that his teachings are valid.

/Look at me being dogmatic for free inquiry and critical thinking

Sounds like you're not so certain....I already know, I don't need to wait one more second.

We can individually be 100% convinced we are right though. Essentially making the certainty factor a personal one.

Indeed, which would validate my assumptions about this section of the forum, although I don't believe that's what A_W wanted to do, as the "Godless" remark was clearly ironic.

His opinion was that FYM is largely comprised of individuals who believe in some form of supernatural being, but are skeptical of the Bible's validity. He was essentially proven wrong. The majority either accept it fully or don't give a shit.

Would you agree that we will all know for certain once our mortal lives are terminated here, that we will then know the answer to your poll questions?
