<quoted text>You have plenty of reasons to not believe that it happened. You choose to ignore them. The magician analogy that someone else used is very apt. I can't believe because there is no proof. The only "proof" supplied involves trusting the unsubstantiated claims of another person (or the hearsay of hearsay, in this case), and that does not make the cut.

do whut wrote, "<quoted text>
Why does this mean I have no faith?"

It means you have no faith because proof is the antithesis of faith. If faith is "firm belief in something for which there is no proof" and you claim to have proof... not that hard to figure out. You don't have faith. You think you have proof. Proof utterly destroys faith. You literally cannot have them both.
For some, faith was so strong that God manifest Himself to them. Then there is no need for faith, that is correct for that person. So you are saying that a miracle means I no longer need faith? Cool. So I know that there is a God.
Thanks.

The blood on the carpet and clothes, the scar, and the boy telling us what happened, along with the eyewitness of both parents is plenty of evidence for me to believe what happened. Especially since I saw the before and after of the carpet and ear.

Though I find the entire affair absolutely ludicrous, I do agree with this logic. I oppose Christianity at every turn not because they aren't applying their own scriptures evenly but because their scriptures are abhorrent. When Christians bash gays it is not because of Leviticus, but also because of Paul (a raging bigot himself).
Yet you do find tons of modern Christians who do in fact quote the Old Testament, especially Leviticus, when it comes to moral questions. That would be the last book I'd look to for moral guidance which is why we give such idiots absolute hell when they do it.
Even though I have givin S/P hell over being gay, I don't hate gay people, and I do think most churches are doing wrong by turning people away because they are gay, or trying to 'fix them'! If some people are born as twins, joined at the head or waist, why is it so hard to belive someone can be born in one sex with the oppisite gender? I think most churches are walking on dangerous ground, in their doctrine of stupidity! Now I will piss both sides off, but I do not care.

The christian cult believes that jesus was a snob who went around judging every one, of course they do not actually read their bibles, they blindly follow the con artist preaching to them.
See, the con artist learned that when people feel bad they do not feel as giving as when they feel good. So telling people that they are sinners and that they are no better than any one else went out the door and telling them how they are so much better than every one else came in

Could be a problem with translation, or even His point could be that He is our only God.
Reads like he is the only God. Says that in multiple places in the O.T. I can see another reason for Judaism to reject LDS teachings.

Isaiah 43:10-11
Before me no god was formed,
nor will there be one after me.

This verse is up for interpretation by many. After all, the Bible was written by humans. I see how this can fuel many different beliefs about who God is and why many are confused about God books.

I see the writer making the use of the word "formed". Like making a god from some substance. Notice also that the word "god"is lower case(possibly indicating lower ranking gods).

Since the word "formed" was use then it would be impossible for Jesus to be formed if the verse was taken literally. Jesus would never have existed.

Regarding "miracles"...

When someone is saved from certain death by a strange succession of circumstances, they say that's a "miracle."

But of course if someone is KILLED by a freak chain of events..being in the wrong place at the wrong time.. that must also be a "miracle."

Look at all those people who decided "what a nice day to go to the beach"...and ended up being killed by a tsunami.
All of those who were on the planes that were hijacked and flown into the Twin Towers.
"Miracles??" Yep.

The christian cult's morals are that they do not kill or steal because their god is watching but they rape children because the bible does not say they can not do that

But, but that would mean it is "gods" fault when these things happen. That would mean it is gods fault people starve and children get beaten to death, gods fault when people get killed in horrible accidents, why it would also be gods fault when people commit crimes..........

This "Imaginary Friend ,as you call him,is my Best Friend.

This Imaginary Friend has helped me resolve some Real life problems
that I've had to face when no one else was able to help me

But ,that is what Best Frieds are for..

This Imaginary Friend has also made me become very aware of the many faults I posses,has helped me deal with them and has given me a Peace of mind that I had never experienced before.
As he said" My Peace I leave with You,not as the world knows it"

He has been my Friend and advisor.
The only payment he requires is that I be obedient to his teachings,which have proven themselves to be excellent.
let me ask you ;
Do you have a friend that you can compare to my "Imaginary Friend"?

Why would a Gaytanic Priest care about children starving or being beaten? Don't you sacrifice them on your gods alter? Or do you just have Gaytanic sex there?

<quoted text>I'm not saying this is the case with your ear story but as a JW growing up we had all kinds of weird demon stories and we use to repeat them as we were there and saw it. One of them was about Smurfs being demonic and a JW who's child brought one home from school saw it walking around. Lots of JWs have claimed to see Smurfs move, not just the one. Then there are books that won't burn or music albums that were also fire retardant because it was Devil music. I've even have a few of my own stories of weird things that would happen and I believed it to be demons. Looking back now tho I feel pretty stupid for actually believing those things but I was taught to believe that way.

Can I ask if most Mormons know about the ear story or is it just a small local to you amount? I guess what I'm asking is if I meet a Mormon and ask them about a child's ear being reattached then will they know what I'm talking about?
Most Mormons probably will not know about this instance. He told his family and close friends and I'm sure his wife did too. But they didn't want this to be something that drew a lot if attention to their family.
