Have Wayne committed, win a prize. (V.2)
Wayne, you're not psychotic. Aside from the fact that you probably don't actually know what that means (you've likely heard that term bandied around so you figure you'll earn some sort of brain points for using it), your only problem is that your just factually incorrect about your presuppositions about God. And when your presuppositions are wrong, your conclusions are also going to be wrong.
What you are asking from us is to accept, on just your statement, that the events that took place during those 2 'earthquake story' days had a supernatural origin. And honestly, I don't care if every event took place exactly as you said it did (which it probably did not), your personal testimony doesn't mean shit. It really doesn't. It's not evidence for anything at all. Would you accept the personal testimony of someone who claimed an alien abduction scenario? Would you accept the personal testimony of a Muslim who said that the deaths of those 20 children in Newtown CT was a sign from Allah that He is angry with American Christians? Of course you wouldn't, but I defy you to prove he's wrong. You can't because it's a claim outside of the realm of proof, just like all of yours are. In the end, it's just far, far more likely that A, the events were coincidental, B, you confabulated (look it up) the story, making it fit more readily with your beliefs, or C, you're just making it up and the only event we can check on is the earthquake.
Now, if you had walked into the restaurant on the day of the earthquake and told everyone the exact time of the earthquake and you were correct... and every person in the restaurant looked outside the window and saw a giant ghostly hand lift the tectonic plate under the ground at the exact moment after you said "I wonder if a really big earthquake is going to hit here right now?", and each of them came on here and gave their personal testimony to it, and five of them posted video footage of the giant hand, all from different angles, and all showing the same scene, then you MIGHT have something with which you can claim GOD had a 'hand (pun 1!)' in it. Otherwise, earthquakes happen. 2 religious people talking about Pat Robertson happens. And cold eggs happen. God not required.
Honestly Wayne. Just look at it from an outside perspective. Step out of your God belief for just a moment and analyze what we're trying to tell you. Let go of your emotional attachment to your God idea and honestly see how easy it is to explain your stories without bringing God into it at all. If God doesn't exist, everything you've said could still have happened exactly as you say it did and you KNOW it. It would just be coincidences. And everyone experiences those. These coincidences (and really, so many of them aren't even that) are only evidence for you
because of your faulty first premise. To illustrate just how badly a poor initial assumption can make things, just look back at the example I used of the man who starts with the assumption that peanut butter has healing properties. Wouldn't the alleviation of knee pain after peanut butter application be evidence that peanut butter has healing properties? Only to someone who FIRST believes that peanut butter has healing properties. To everyone else, the knee got better for other reasons and the guy is 'nuts (pun 2!) for thinking peanut butter was the actual solution. If the first premise is wrong, then a faulty conclusion comes out. That's exactly what you're doing with God.
Have you ever had a coincidental event happen in your life that you didn't attribute to God? If yes, why can't they all be? Tell me why they can't. And 'because they're so unlikely' is NOT a reason. Unlikely things happen. We've been over that. It has to be MORE than that.
I don't think you know who you are dealing with here, but it is a pleasure to have you set the scene so adroitly for me.
I think if you really knew what most of us thought of you, you'd be pretty embarrassed by it. You're not winning here. Whatever message you think you got from your God that placed you here, I think you misread it, because you're not getting anywhere.
We know your type, Wayne. You're just a far more gullible, arrogant and deluded version of it. The only reason people keep talking to you is because there's so few other Christians posting. You're a chew toy until someone smarter comes along.
The man protesteth too much methinks.
Whistling in the dark huh? It's OK, just lt let it sink in....it will.
If it were only one person, then you might have a point Wayne. But I dare say there isn't a single one of us that would disagree with his breakdown of your nonsense. Simply put... He's right and you're not. He picked apart your story quite well and showed beyond any reasonable doubt that the events are explainable without the slightest need for a deity. And you responded with nothing more than the equivalent of a condescending finger wag. A dick move, but predictable from someone as arrogant as you. But then you say stuff like this as if you're making points and that would be funny if it wasn't so sad. It's not sinking in. You're still wrong about God. It's not real. I don't know what your end hope was here, but I'd bet everything I own that you're going to walk away unfulfilled. If what you've presented so far is the best you've got, then make no mistake... you'll leave here soon without a single one of us thinking you're right. Sorry to break it to you.
I just find it so sad that you were never taught how to think. You were taught WHAT to think, but not HOW to think. It's such an injustice.
