God is a little like math. You can pray him in the living room listen and hear him. Change room and pray him again, listen, you'll hear him. Same result every time.
Oh, I can completely agree with you here! I can pray, pray pray all the day long and get the same result no matter where I am. Nothing.
I can perform the same experiment right before your eyes. You can too, you might have trouble at first but anyone can learn how to pray God or... well, I suppose some people just refuse to accept God in to their lives....
You see, Luk... and I do not fault you for being unaware of this, although I did post not to long ago my story how I became an atheist... I used to believe in a "God" concept. I really did. Up until the age of 14 I (excuse the pun) religiously said The Lord's Prayer every night before going to bed... followed by "God, please look after my mom, my dad, my sisters, my grandpa, my grandma...." while continuously adding more names to the list of people I wanted "God" to keep safe from harm (friends, cousins, favorite teachers) until, I kid you not, it took about two minutes of reciting names before I was finished.
Want to take a guess as to whether or not during the course of all those years my prayers got the same result every time?
Back to your "challenge". So now you are saying that your concept of "God" can be tested using the scientific method? You already know that you are setting myself up for failure. You already know that I lack belief in your concept of "God" due to your continuous failure to provide even the minutest shred of Testable. Measurable. Quantifiable. Verifiable evidence myself and other atheists on the Forum has requested. And even if I was swayed by your philosophical conjectures and personal opinions, my "God" concept I would have "defined" in to being as a separate entity - separate from my human brain would then be at odds with your 'God" concept.
So, I have a better challenge. You concept of "God"... in spite of your protests that as an immaterial being He cannot be proven through the scientific method... apparently can interact with yourself and your environment. According to your previous posts, He seemingly had enough free time to prevent you from stubbing your toe, so this should be of no effort to him.
Pray to your concept of God to either directly or indirectly provide you with my home telephone number, then give me a call (I'll even give you my permission to call collect). Make sure you have a recorder handy to record the evidence of our conversation. I'll then be more than happy to have you teach me how to hear "God".
God is a little like math
In the fashion that just like 2+2=5, something just doesn't add up.
I was trying to be humorous by imitating you :s
Imitation as a form of sarcasm only works if I had attempted to cite myself as the sole authority behind my opinions, which I have not. So, sah-wing an' a miss.
This car is real per their testimony only.
Up until you were able to verify
said testimony with an actual red car being produced, yes?
I have heard your testimony that there your concept of "God" separate from your brain. Will you produce Him for me to verify? Can you?
Hmm we (believers) have access to some part of the code that non believer don't have access to.
Not what I had asked, Luk. Remember, it was you who stated "He can, but won't. He will use me instead.
in regards to whether or not he is capable of directly
interacting with the material world. Again, are you privy to your concept of "God's" actions at all times to confidently say he only acts indirectly
through you or other believers such as yourself?
Note that it was the angel who interacted, not him. Mary being pregnant is a miracle. Miracles happen in the world every day. I think that they do because we believer can access that part of the code that non believer don't have access to.
Actually, according to Luke 1:35, it was the "Holy Ghost" that did the deed:
And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee,
That's funny, I thought Ghosts were immaterial, too. Care to explain how this "Holy Ghost" was able to directly interact
with a physical being (Mary) while your concept of "God" only chooses to work indirectly through you (as you have claimed)?
