The cool thing to me is that neither of us know what happens after death. Science is useless in this question and belief can never show proof. I think the first 10 seconds after we die will be very cool if believers are right.
Why is it so hard to believe that people can have faith in something they don't fully understand? You have not tested every theory that scientists put forth. You have faith in humans that their tests were done properly.
Others have already addressed this. Nice to see this thread is getting a lot of action.

Science is certainly not useless in this question. It has just as much use as in any other question. We evaluate questions based on evidence and reason. If there is a lot of evidence for a certain idea and none for a different idea, and if reason leads to think the former idea seems more plausible then it is not only realistic to lend trust to that idea, it is IRRATIONAL and unrealistic not to.

In other words, if science indicates that we probably simply die and do not go on then it makes sense to accept that as a conditionally true fact.

There is always room for a little doubt. But what you are suggesting is that you not only doubt it, you actively believe in an entirely different idea. An idea that is rich in detail, full of dovetailing ideas, and true for everyone. It makes no sense to believe that way, except that it probably makes you feel better to do so. I understand that desire.

It would make me feel better to think that in ten years I'll be a rich man with the powers of a superhero and dozens of hot wives. But guess what? I would be insane to actually believe it. And you would agree with me on that, right?

I think you misunderstood me and are trying to ride that pony in the ground. Let me clarify. Not everything a prophet speaks is inspired or is direct revelation from The Lord. They speak words from their own minds much more frequently than they declare revelation.
How do you know the difference?

I disagree that time is not relevant here and that if I am trying to give it relevance, it's because I am being tricked by an outdated part of my brain,whatever that might mean, That sounds absurd...
I think we've discovered the crux of the problem here.

It is pretty clear their are links between dinosaurs and birds, but that does not mean all claims about each one is true.
But most atheist science followers are not denying people rights due to what science is saying about ostrich eggs. But Christians do try and deny rights to homosexuals due to what the bible claims about them. You have absolutely zero evidence a god approved of condemning homosexuals.
Excellent point.

The Bible rarely mentions homosexuality at all, and often in unclear terms. According to the way people used to interpret the Bible, you could easily interpret those passages in different ways. Christians do this ALL THE TIME. It is how they dodge the tricky parts of the Bible such as the story of Abraham going to sacrifice Isaac. They interpret it in a way that makes it sound good.

Yet they fixate on their negative interpretation of the gay bits. They fixate on it in a big way. Why? Why this one little thing? Is it because this is a small minority and an easy target?

That might not have been the best way to illustrate delusional thinking to a guy who's religion/sect has a history of polygamy, wealth attainment, and magic underwear.

These events took place on the same day,the same date and the same time 8;30 to 9;00 and it had never occurred to the lady in question, to look in the lost pet section previous to that particular day .
I addressed this already. People read the paper in the morning, so the time of day is not really shocking. Also, this all takes place in a few weeks, right? From the time the dog was found by the other person to the time the lady saw the ad is only a few weeks, correct? So right off the bat there is roughly a 1/14 chance she would call on that day. Actually, even better odds than that.

You are looking for reasons to justify an irrational belief.

I was bought up by christians.

Reading the bible made me an atheist. The character in the book called God is one of the most horiffic I've ever read about.
I find most christians listen to the soundbites of the bible. When they actually read it cover to cover many are shocked.

Even if he did exist I would certainly not worship such a deity with such obvious contempt for the well being of his creations.

Several hundred religion? There are 38,000 different types of christianity alone. Look up Godlist on tinternet, there are thousands.

If you can explain why your god (with no evidence) is more likely than all those other gods (again with no evidence) then maybe I'd listen.

You numptys only choose that god because of the time and place of your birth. Your faith is an accident of geography and timing. If you'd been born in Cairo for instance you'd probably be just the same but talking about a differnt religion.

We should educate our children of these heinous parts of life but NOT AS SCIENCE as guess what is is NOT SCIENCE or even history.

The danger in teaching the Bible is that this book has the power to create faith even in an atheist. If it is allowed to be taught there is a strong possibility someone could be converted to Jesus Christ. Under the current world views is it possible to allow such a powerful tool for good to be taught in public schools and that before the young minds of the future?
You guys crack me up...The Bible was in teaching our children to read in public schools. The American people are the most miss guyed people about our education. From the Bible to our type of government. Yes our young people needs to be effected by Jesus Christ teachings. May be they'll learn some thing like to love each and respect life.

Concern, I'm sure you're the American that thinks America is a democracy form of government. WE are a Republic form of government.
Yes, we where founded up on the 10 Commandment of the Bible. Why did our for fathers quote so many biblical scriptures in their writing. Please go to Thomas Jefferson Monument in DC... Were the Bible scripture is in scripted in the dome.

?????????? If readying and teach the Bible in a public school happens to our young minds of mush in America, our country in good shape!!!!!!!!!!

God Bless America!!!
Yes and Amen

THE Bibles very clear on the subject of Homosexuality. Just read Romans Chapter one!!! LOL...you've never read the Bible through so you really don't understand the Bible or know what it truly says.

You may be right. Sometimes I've let my emotions get away from me. Please allow me share a few snippets of wisdom I have been able to gather from more intelligent, compassionate and level headed posters.

"You and that jerk you responded to; imagine yourselves to be so full of awe inspireing wisdom; why are you both not hard at work at NASA? How do you lower yourself to posting on topix all day? Unemployed Genius, what a goddamn shame!"

<quoted text>
I have had marriage, family and financial problems and they have all worked out, does that mean God answers my unasked prayers? If I had prayed to Thor the whole time I've had these problems then does that mean he is real?
Everyone has problems that work out, otherwise it would be a death sentence and not a problem. Damn man, how much did you miss your little dog to give God all this credit? You said you didn't believe in God yet you went to church to pray for it's return? You sure you're not gay?
I don't believe you are familiar with the instructions in Scripture,as to what makes prayer effective.MAYBE these will help you to understand

Psalm 55:22 &#9658;

Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken .
In other words,bring your problems to the Lord

Regarding prayer
&#9668; Isaiah 65:24 &#9658;

Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.

I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!

That is why the time frame on my posting was very relevant
At at 9;00 AM ,when I had just finished praying,at that same time,9;00 AM,the lady was calling me with the information that would lead me to my dog
The fact is that,when I have cast my cares upon the Lord,as he has promised,I have gotten an immediate response.

Matthew 6:5-8
New Living Translation (NLT)

7 “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again. 8 Don’t be like them, for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
but deliver us from the evil one.[b]’

14 For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

I have tested those instructions and found them to be true.
So either God is answering my prayers,or,someone else is If not God,then who?
Yes and Amen

Sorry, but I do not believe a god spoke to you, nor Brigham Young, nor Moses.
I think if god is speaking to believers, they would all be on the same page. Evidence shows they are not on the same page, thus this proves god is not speaking to believers.
God did not tell me 3-5... He tells NO one the day n time!
Did you not read that?
.
"I do not believe a god spoke to you"
That's your problem isn't it?
.
God spoke Adam and Eve too... What part of "Do NOT eat" did they not understand?
.
God was RIGHT on... when He told me anything... including Obama!
Surely you can see it now... can you not?

Yiago, you think Christians targets homosexuality what about Islamic Shayari Law???? You get to caught up with Christians and their faith of love. Christian disagree with you about Homosexuality but they still love you as Christ does. I suggest you quit Christian bashing. I suggest you study Islamic rules about Homosexuality!!! Leave Christians along their not you're problem. Shayari law or Christian biblical law which will impact you the most???
