You're welcome.

One of the most common things that people who've had NDE's recall is how they were floating up near the ceiling and how they could see their body being attendedby doctors/surgeons, etc.

A few years back, I think someonedid a studywherethey placed objects on shelves so that they couildn't beseen from below but could be seen from above, The objects were chosen so that they would clearly be out ofplace for a medical room/operating theatre.

The idea being that anyone who floated as part of their NDE mat recall seeing the objects.

I can't recall what the results were.

Still you persist in over-estimating yourself.

Subtlety is hardly your strong point and I could see what you were doing a mile away. Hell, a six year old could have seen through your clumsy attempt to catch me out.

What was subtle was the way I played you at your own game and caught you in your own snare.

I did it so well that you still honestly believe that I am in the USA.

You can study all you want, but up until death, you'll never get the answer...
You need to watch "Heaven is for real".
No way it can be explained by science... no matter how bad they want to!

It's trivial to explain it: the little boy's parents made the whole thing up in order to make money.

You got caught twice , once when you posted EST for your location,secondly when you claimed you had been away from topix for a few days cause you had been visitting " The Nations Capital."
Now ,you well know that americans refer to washington D.C. as the Nations capital.
The brits DO NOT refer to London by that nickname , They refer to London asThe Square Mile, The Old Smoke, The Smoke ans you did not know that.
When I cuaght your mistake and challenged you on it,you ignored it. When challenged a second time you sent the old crone,witchetty,out to defend you ,AND she failed,her excuse was more futile than yours.
Nahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, the nonbeliever did not outsmart me, you outsmarted yourself with your nonsense..
How that must cause you to be afflicted by dyspepsia ans other maladies .
But, don't worry, you will mess up again,and keep in mind " I will Always be There to Remind you"

Only way to explain that is that he needed bait so he could go fishing..

There is no need to provide an answer to something you already know..And intentionally omitted

hardly accurate Nipplenose. Do not accuse me of dreaming when it is atheists that hallucinate and have nightmares to which you claim to relate.
But more to the point ,It is atheists whose minds have been ravaged and polluted by their faith.
It is atheists who believe nothing created something out of nothing
It is atheists who believe that the nonliving can create life , nonintelligence can create intelligence and nonconsciousness can create consciousness....
AAAAAnd THEEEEEEEEEEN they support their faith by introducing a cavernous gap.
They claim that Science will find an answer..........In a few million or billion years......... You can drive a couple of million centuries through that gap
That is definitely a sign of desperation,,,Chritians make no such incredulous,absurd ,unreal and unattainable excuses. as can only emanate in a mind that has been left defenseless and ravaged by their faith
The fruits of atheism a crippled mind,ravaged and looted by gibberish and nonsense

It is a debate, freedom of speech. Evidence is shown why religion is based on mythology and fictitious claims. Do you want your child to belong to a cult? Educating what religion teaches and the dangers it can pose to the individual, family relations and the world is important to understand risks that one takes accepting that theology.
Check out "James the Preacher" debating on Youtube at an atheist convention. Let me know what you think about his preaching, should he teach the bible in public school?
The debates on religion is not only confined between agnostic, atheist and religious believers, on Topix forums.
No cults. Lol. Seems both sides appear a bit cult like. Both sides have their theories. I believe our children should be taught science at school. Tell them the bible stories at home. Just be a good person and dont take the bible so literally. Keep in mind it was written over 2,000 years ago.

No. Your version of creation involves a magical being, a talking snake and a disobedient woman.

Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah The accurate version of creation is stated in Genesis 1, In the begining God created the heavens and the Earth...Says nothing about magical.
God formed man from the dust on the ground, Says nothing about magical.
Your version, emanating from a mind pillaged by gibberish is the one that injects magic into the
equation,,, Something that you are forced into in order to defend your baseless faith.
Atheists believed the Universe was eternal, the BB destroyed that erroneous misconception , The BB confirmed what had already been made clear in the Bible tousands of years ago.
Man was formed from the dust on the ground, Today,atheists are forced to admit that fact,as they claim we were formed from stadust... Already knew that when I read the bible.
However, after having been proved wrong on both counts atheists continue their attempts to save face by engendering nonsense and guberish in their feeble minds.
The universe was created but" they don't know how this happened.,1) a magical miracle.
Man is made from the dust on the ground as they rightfully claim, BUT, to atheists there is no creator, Nothing created something from nothing, the nonliving created life ,magical miracle no. 2
Mankind evolved from something , a replicating cell.
They can not explain, even by allufing to magic how this cell came into existence and where the information contained therein came from.
They can not explain why it became necessary for a sperm to fertilize an egg in order for the continuation of the species....
Again I repeat, your magical illusions do not represent reality, your minds have been pillaged,abused and looted by the tenets of your faith,which have left you defenseless and hung you out to dry.......
Those are the fruits of atheism in full bloom..... Deal with it..... No you won't cause you can't
All you atheists can do is put your pillaged minds together anddream up some more illconceived excuses and magical incantations.....
AND, Before you ask the question,the answer is no, I will not give you or science a couple of million years to hopefully come up with an aNSWER, AS YOU WILL HAVE AN ANSWER long before that,when your spirit departs your body, as Hitchens undoubtedly knows by now
Of course,if you believe as Duket does, all Hitchens was good for was worm food. Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuk

Please explain, in detail, the *natural* mechanisms by which God created these things.

The fact is that man evolved from earlier hominids. The Bible, which describes humans as being made directly, is false.

Therein lies your erroneous assumption. There does not seem to be a natural mechanism ,is there.
God is Supernatural, as you well know and therefore his creation can not be accounted for by natural means.
atheist scientists have tried and failed miserably in their attempts to create life by natural means AND you know that.
Moreover, while atheists claim that life Does Not need a creator,they plan to prove their point by attempting to create life, " That is dunderhead logic"

Man evolved from earlier hominids? Is that factual? Where is your evidence?
Where is the missink link which no one has been able to find? Balderdash.
However, you are attempting to deviate from the subject...
Let us get to the bottom of the problem,,,, Can you explain the natural mechanism by which nothing created something out of nothing?
After you have solved that problem, can you then explain the natural mechanism whereby the nonliving create life, the nonconscious create consciousness and the nonintelligent create intelligence.....And take your time,but I do not have millions of years at my disposal to wait for an answer..........And no , don't give me the duket formula... The churning of the elements over a period of Blah blah blah years blah blah blah..........
Let us not resort to claiming magical miracles or any of the other gibberish that has been offered.
Or,is your answer going to be " We don't know" Well, I have heard that before and need not hear it again, as it is obvious that you don't know, since it is impossible for nothing to create something out of nothing....

We should all at least agree that the creation of the universe in any sence was magical and simply remarkable.

No, it's not, if the materials and processes they use would have been available naturally. You don't know anything about science.

There are dozens of hominid fossils. The missing link is nothing more than a Creationist trope used by the ignorant.

We don't fully know is the honest answer. Consciousness and intelligence are clearly products of the brain, however, and we know that evolved.

You also don't know, but appeal to answers that are undeniably false.

No we shouldn't.... First there is no evidence it was created in the first place ... My view it was converted.... and while it's existence may be remarkable, I see nothing magical about it....
