How can BS make any claim we are wrong using his reasoning when he maintains human reasoning is faulty.

BS , are you not human. What is your basis for such claims that does not rely on faulty human reasoning.

Healings
Again, if a god performs a healing, then something physical must be happening - assuming this is a physical condition, of course, though even a mental healing would require some material action. Again, claimed healings need more investigation that talking to people as we would be looking to make sure it wasn't anything other than a god and seeing if we find out how it was done.

There was a TV series about this called Miracles Decoded. I saw one episode in which they used sensors to check the effects and doctors then checked the results.

The effects of healings which people claimed and the results of the healings which people claimed were both found to be not just unproven, but false. One person in that episode even died while the series was being prepared. So, not a successful healing.

I am not impeccable with my words.  I've been reading old posts.   I have been an arrogant bitch.

I am so sorry to Velkyn and to you albeto.   Very sorry.

That's gracious. Thank you.

Yes, Jst, but you are asked to be a bit more specific on this one. Loose terms like creator and ruler and vague. What exactly are they?

Of course the ruler of the universe could be on a planet around the star Colon for all I know.

Okay then one whose will invariably becomes reality.

Sounds  a good description of the laws of physics which rule everything in the universe.

I am nothing like trump.  Trump does this stuff intentionally.  I do not. 

Well, the analogy certainly works whether or not either of you do this stuff intentionally.

I'm pro-choice.  I'm not changing that position.

Yes, we know. You keep saying that. What we don't know is how you are convinced that by solving the problem of poverty we can avoid producing suffering thereby avoiding mental illness. Or by your silence do you mean to retract it?

I wonder if Jesus visited that planet too?  Or are we the only planet in the entire universe with a species capable of comprehending Jesus, so he only had to come here?

Are humans the only species that can go to heaven or hell?  Are we the only ones that have to concern ourselves with just going ahead, taking on Pascal's Wager as a form of insurance and having this faith?  The only ones in a universe that could contain as many as 1 (followed by 24 zeroes) planets?

Does God exist?  Please explain.

Nope.  Reality does not appear to include an entity with the characteristics generally attributed to the entity that carries the label of the arrangement of letters 'g-o-d'.

Counter-questions:
Before you were born, did you exist?  In the time period between your death and subsequent resurrection, do you exist?  In the time period between Jesus' death and subsequent resurrection, did Jesus exist?

I do not believe so.  That's for all three.
