so all things manifest from that ONE thing. energy cannot be created. energy cannot be destroyed. energy simply changes form.
all forms are relative to energy, expressed as the theory of relativity.
e = m(c*c)
relativity means relative as in related.

I take it back, you clearly do operate on a HIGH-er level that us mere mortals.

Seriously though, what in Zeus's beard does this have to do with anything?

Yes, medical science has come along way and has it's meaningful benefits. My belief is that God blesses those working to find cures with the knowledge needed if they seek his guidance.

why do you worship the image of the beast that was slain from the foundation of the world?

isn't idolatry forbidden, or an abomination, in your cult?

1 John 5:21
Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

Matthew 24:15
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,(whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Mark 13:14
But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not,(let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:

Daniel 7:11
I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

Acts 7:42
Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness?

Ecclesiastes 3:18
I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

guess that explains why most scientist are atheist then. thanks. does god give the criminals the knowledge they possess as well? and if u say the devil does that, then where does the devil get his knowledge from? wouldnt that be the same god that created everything that gave the devil the knowledge that he has too?

Most evolved non-church attending former Catholics (such as the most recent scientist we have been discussing today)-are FAR FAR from being anything "atheist"!

Science usually has a much greater respect for humanity than that.

The Holy Spirit (aka watchtower) does make mistakes now and then. A test of time allows for corrections to be made for failed predictions.

Following the death of Charles Taze Russell (1916), the Watchtower Society's founder, a bitter struggle began over the organization's leadership.

In 1917, Joseph Franklin Rutherford was elected as the new president. Rutherford immediately began introducing modifications in Russell's teachings in order to bring them into accord with his own theological opinions.

In 1920 the Watchtower Society published Millions Now Living Will Never Die, a book authored by Rutherford.2 It prophesied that many Hebrew Bible characters would be raised to life in 1925. These resurrected individuals would then rule the earth.

Some people living on Earth in 1914 who accepted the Watchtower Society's beliefs would never die. The prophecy failed. But, what of the promise that "Millions now living will never die"? The Society contends..........

As you may know, some have used religion for commercial purposes. Others have used it to further their political ends or to get rich at the expense of the poor. How do you think such religious profiteers react when a true witness about God is given? Obviously, they feel threatened. That is one reason why you may hear some speak evil of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Whatever the cost, Jehovah’s Witnesses adhere closely to the Bible. They have not invented a new religion. They merely follow what is written in the Torah, the Psalms, and the Gospel, which is the foundation of true religion.

ofcourse u can find a group that isnt atheist but look at the science community at a whole and u will learn that the majority (overwhelming majority at that) are atheist. and the findings that they produce are what saves lives and makes the world better or worse in some cases but the fact is most of the ppl that actually care about truth and go on learning more and more as they age grow away from the teachings of the church cuz they are far from truths that we know in todays modern world. the church is stuck in old age thoughts and beliefs for the fact that it cant change its teachings or it goes against the teaching that the bible is true no matter what. ofcourse u have the ppl that say it says that but u are takin it out of context...lol...sorry but if god inspired it and it says to kill or stone or something then im pretty sure its not open to human interpretation and ppl cant say well it really means...blah blah blah. for once i want to see a christian that lives by the rules of their god instead of cherry picking the book. then u can see that it is no different than the muslim teachings.
