"What would happen if we get down on our knees and pray to God in this way: (snip prayer)
If you get an "answer," how do you distinguish the voice of a real god from the voice of your own imagination? I don't think we have the neurological technology to do that yet.
Proof #3 - Look at historical gods... I don't need to. There's only One God and that's the Almighty. Bible states it if you're going according to the bible.
Logical fallacy: Petitio principii
. I, myself, prefer the Eddas to the Bible. Thank you for proving the existence of Oðinn, Freyja, Thor, Loki, Heimdall, Frigga, Baldur...
Sciene was invented by man just as God invented science. No need to discuss this further.
Biblegod couldn't possibly have invented science. It couldn't even come up with a decent approximation of pi.
I'm in the process of reading(still in old testament) and I got to say, although it might sound wrong to stone people, you need to understand God needed to embed fear so that we wouldn't sin. In order to do that, people needed to get stoned so that people would know he was serious so that they don't do it.
That is indescribably sick and morally indefensible.
Just because the Mormons and Muslims belive in "fairty tales" doesn't mean the christians and Jewish are wrong.
Then I expect a Talking Snake™ in my mailbox first thing tomorrow morning, or an admission that Christians do, indeed, believe in fairy tales.
My father was mugged in 2000 and choked to death. He told me he saw a brightlight and the tunnel and said as he tried to head towards he was pushed back and awoken.
He honestly may have thought he was dead, but I don't think that his brain actually died at any time.
Also, my mother passed for 10 minutes and came back. She told me she saw God but refused to tell me deatils as she is not allowed to reveal the secrets of the Lord. She did say he was the most beautiful looking person in the world and was very humble, warm and welcoming.
I think that she was alive, but hallucinating, just as for your father.
Did you ever stop to think you could be one of the apostles of Satan and that's why you say this. Hell, you could be the Anti-christ trying to make people beleive you to take us down but you're too ignorant to realize it.
It's possible, I suppose, but I think it is vastly more likely that you are suffering from heavy religious indoctrination and also some severe mental health problems as evidenced by your second post.
If someonehad an uncurable cancer and was miracously cured, and science had no say on how it was possible, it's cause it's God...Next proof.
Ever heard of cancers going into remission?
In the bible, God states to make offerings when you go to church. The church needs money to stay open and feed the poor.
I prefer to give to my local food bank. More food, less overhead, and no preaching.
You say how can God not answer prayters and do it himself is cause he uses people to do it for him. For if he came down we'd all discinegrate.
Completely ridiculous. If this were so, Jesus couldn't even have preached to his disciples without disintegrating them.
Proof #13 - Take a look at slavery... You didn't live in those times to justify your irrational statement.
Slavery is wrong. Period.
Ever hear of the Shroud of Turin? That was left by jesus.
Sorry, but no. It's a medieval forgery, and has been thoroughly debunked.
Proof #15 - Examine Jesus' resurrection... I don't need to.
Yes, you most certainly *do* need to examine this. There is no empirical evidence for anyone, anywhere coming back from the dead after several days. It is almost certainly a myth, stolen from earlier myths of resurrected god-men.
Jesus is not to appear again until the time of Armageddon. It says so in revelation.
The Bible is not acceptable evidence here.
God can tell someone to kill someone for the greater kill. If a murderer killed your daughter and could kill again, would you not kill hi to put him to justice so that he may burn in hell for eternity as the Lord promises for the wicked?
No. I am opposed to the death penalty. I would want the murderer imprisoned for the rest of his or her life, and I absolutely would *not* want the murderer tortured for eternity. To inflict such pain upon *any* sentient being is to commit an even greater crime.
Proof #22 - Count all the people God wants to murder... He's getting rid of the evil.
Já, riiight. Were the Amalekite babies were so evil your pretend god couldn't think of anything else to do with them, other than have them killed?
Are you listening to the vicious rationalizations you're spouting here? You are morally bankrupt, and not because some mythical woman allegedly ate an apple a long time ago. You did this all on your own.
Grant it, I want Jesus to come so I can stick it to the Jews but I know it's wrong...
Obviously your religion has not made you a better person.
I'm afriad of burning in hell for all eternity.
The person who taught you that is an extremely abusive person.
I am so certain that hell does not exist, and so determined that I could *not* worship a god that would create such a place, that I have made a conscious decision to go to hell rather than heaven if those places actually exist. I simply could not be happy in a heaven if anyone else was suffering in hell.
Face the fear directly, and in time it will go away.
Hmm, if because of a woman we sinned, would you not get ANGRY with her?
What a pathetic responsibility dodge... Blaming the woes of the world on a mythical woman who didn't even know that eating the Forbidden Fruit was wrong...
...Because, before eating the fruit, she did not have knowledge of good and evil.
Please seek competent professional help from a certified psychiatrist before your religious delusions destroy the rest of your life.
