When someone is so deluded by a scam, or wants to deny they are a fool, they will see miracles in simple coincidence by ignoring the fact that there are perfectly logical and natural explanations for it all. Congratulations on being that deluded.

Belief without evidence is gullible. So, show your evidence or my "belief" is valid while yours is invalid.

You have confirmation bias and ignore that you do have that because that's what confirmation bias is. You are delusional, predicting that people will call you what you are only demonstrates that your delusion prevents you from admitting it.

The bible clearly sees non belief as the greatest of sins. An unforgivable sin.
This stance is not just.
Without evidence, one should not expect belief.
NOT "An unforgivable sin", as you can believe, and be Forgiven!
Plenty of evidence... you just deny it for man's teachings!

Same thing he does to every doubter!
Gets you to doubt God's words, makes your logic all twisted!
You say that your smart enough not to put "God did it" in the gaps
of your knowledge, but that lends satan to put anything in the gaps... even when it doesn't work, and some put manufactured evidence to make it look right!

<quoted text>You and two other posters used the phrase, still small voice", so I guess you all are the devil trying to brainwash me?
There is a still small voice, and it always answers in Truth...
The Loud voice I heard was a major intercessory voice to make me listen, as I was just about to do something stoooopid!
I hope you can hear any voice from God... soon!

LOL! A NEW detail.
This tale grows and grows.
How many other ways do you think you can work
the "magic 4" into your story?
Maybe you saw the "4 Horsemen" while you were riding in the police car?
Perhaps you were the 4th case on the docket?
The courtroom and your cell BOTH HAD 4 WALLS! Yes! That's it!
Not a "new" detail!

YaA as far as all that's concerned, I think you are (not) looking at the bigger picture of it all, close enough.
Catholics believe in Jesus, the cross, the golden rule and faith.
Look a few things up before you run your clueless pie hole and just ASSUME you know what you're talking about-because honestly, you are sounding like you have no idea.
Look up Homily, Stations of the Cross, Lent blahblahblah.
The traditions of culture and custom, will all boil back down to the SAME belief, ulitmetely.
Just because someone brushes their teeth with a different type toothbrush than you, doesn't mean they don't believe in toothbrushes.
And just because you might not SEE one sitting in the specific pew-brushholder where YOU think it should be sitting, doesn't mean it doesn't exist...as pewbrushholders aren't what actually matters anyway.
Maybe I prefer to keep my pewbrushholder rituals private, because I really don't care about just "impressing" others for the sake of just that, because as many of us know, just sitting in a pewbrushholder regulary, does not make a toothpick, a toothbrush.
MMM k?

You guys keep forgetting this part of the equation. How convenient.
No we don't forget that part!
Do you understand "God is Spirit"????
What in the heck do any of us know about what's in the Spirit world, and where God got His knowledge...
except what is written in the Bible, and what He is willing to share?
Ask Him yourself!

Yes, my research indicates that the levitathan is described in Job 41 and mentioned in Isaiah 27:1. However, you breach logic when you make a huge leap of faith to believe that it was probably some dinasaur-like creature and that lived alongside modern man. I have no problem with your making either of those assumptions, but not as a logical consequence of any solid empirical evidence. Itís quite OK to believe what you believe because you believe thatís what the Bible teaches, but doing so does not require that your belief is a result of scientific inquiry.
Science is not a comprehensive, rock solid account of everything we want to understand. It is only a method of systematic inquiry guided by disciplined thinking, including logic. There are more gaps in our knowledge of the universe than facts understood. Such gaps are not flaws. In science, flaws reference failures adhering to its principles and methods.
Religion is working well when it provides all the answers. Thatís not the purpose of science.
Religion does not produce all the answers.
Science has provided humans with more answers by far.
The answers religion produces are highly questionable. I call them guesses, not answers. Guesses based upon what ancient man thought due to the severe lack of scientific answers. Ancient man had to produce answers to pacify his need to have some direction. Ancient man had little answers for the world around him, so his imagination took over.
This is why we see so many various and different religions and superstitions. They are as different as ones imagination can produce.
They are still being produced today, note Scientology.

So this voice came from everywhere, but you can't tell us what it sounded like?

I put nothing in a gap of knowledge.
It looks like you see science as Satan. Demeaning science is the way to faith.

The Bible starts with Genesis and God created the Heavens, Man, Animals and everything else in first 6 days... Then follow time line about 4,000 years til Christ and 2,000 after ....
This calculation must assume the bible speaks of every generation of man. Not to mention, the calculation must assume the bible has zero flaws.
You evidently trust ancient mans word, one hundred percent and discount modern mans findings that prove the contrary.
Demeaning science is the way to faith.
This is why I protest your faith.

The word ďcuriousĒ has two meanings:(1) eager to learn something,(2) strange/unusual. Since you only offer answers and ask no question, you donít appear to be curious in the first sense. Your answers arise, albeit seemingly unwittingly, from verbal gymnastics and riddled thinking. Why talk in puzzles?
Are you suggesting I change my name to the Riddler?
I ask questions,if I see a need.
And I answer according to what I believe.
I also understand,we are all at liberty to read or not read what someone may
So what is your point?

So you finally admit you cannot know how it all started, great. Now stop demanding we know how it all started.
How it all started has nothing to do with my atheism, and if your religion is based upon it, then your religion is based upon something you cannot know.

We list reasons every day of why we do not believe in your god, so trying to show a gap of knowledge is not going to change anything about our non belief.
You have a gap that is equal to ours. No one can know how all started. But you and your team sure have been quite arrogant about this topic lately and keep claiming to know. Thanks for finally admitting you do not know.

I use Kaspersky Security for our Macs and also the Windows version for that ubiquitous PC I keep to remain humble and remember that technology isnít exactly perfect. Iíve used several antivirus programs through the years and strongly prefer Kaspersky. In my opinion, Symmantec and Norton are the worst, McAfee marginally OK, Intego better and Kaspersky clearly the best and easiest to use (just go with the default settings; it updates automatically several times daily).
