Prof: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life, and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course I do.
Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an ongoing endeavour, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
(The class is in uproar.)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?
(The class breaks out into laughter.)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures?
(The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)
Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.
Student: That is it, sir. The link between man and God is faith. That is all that keeps things moving and alive.
Sorry so long , but since you were all on the subject.
Great Post!
Thanks :-)

I really like the 'premise' of you're story, trusted. Simply put, you are only establishing what has already been said about faith.. and using a flawed 'terminology' of sorts does not give evidence, only 'self-evident' lecture that we constantly hear over and over. The word "cold" is merely used for the 'dummies' to describe a temperature reading @ a certain degree. If we continue down this road, then we REALLY do get our Dinosaurs and Noa's ark back? What about Atlantis? lol, the list could go on and on... like a 'flawed' debate being used as any premise.

If the nation of Islam took this country over and forced the Quran to be taught in schools, you fake azz zealots would be rampid in the streets like some Occupy protesters, but talkin about religious equality... preach on preachers!

They cry about this antiquated Book, and just about everyday it proves it's self to be more than JUST a Book!
Calling 'Good' evil, n 'Evil' good...
Killing Babies, being perverted...
It's all right there!
I just hope they have enought smarts to hit their knees
when Iran/Islam declairs Peace with Israel!
....
on a side note;
On Wretched last night they had some enteresting data
on same sex marriages...
from the
http://www.nationalreview.com/ #
stating that the pecentage rates of divorce are way higher, and
for hetrosexuals it is dropping!
50% for Lesbians, 30ish for men...
seems only about 15% even want to get married if they can!
Poor judges...

Just wanted you all's outlook on the story , since that was what all the fuss was about. We all have faith in some way. To trust in what we think , not only in religion , but in everyday life. Do you not have faith your raising your kids right, in your loved ones, your car getting you were you need to go each day, your job paying your bills? If it is not faith of some sort what is it? I may not be living right but I am trying . Not on a fence , been poked on the tail too much. Just taking it all in.

A drunk man in an Oldsmobile,
They said, had run the light
That caused the six-car pileup
On 109 that night.
When broken bodies lay about
And blood was everywhere,
The sirens screamed out elegies,
For death was in the air.

A mother, trapped inside her car,
Was heard above the noise;
Her plaintive plea near split the air:
"Oh, God, please spare my boys!"

She fought to loose her pinned hands;
She struggled to get free,
But mangled metal held her fast
In grim captivity.

Her frightened eyes then focused
On where the back seat once had been,
But all she saw was broken glass and
Two children's seats crushed in.

Her twins were nowhere to be seen;
She did not hear them cry,
And then she prayed they'd been thrown free,
"Oh, God, don't let them die!"

Then firemen came and cut her loose,
But when they searched the back,
They found therein no little boys,
But the seat belts were intact.

They thought the woman had gone mad
And was traveling alone,
But when they turned to question her,
They discovered she was gone.

Policemen saw her running wild
And screaming above the noise
In beseeching supplication,
"Please help me find my boys!

They're four years old and wear blue shirts;
Their jeans are blue to match."
One cop spoke up, "They're in my car,
And they don't have a scratch.

They said their daddy put them there
And gave them each a cone
Then told them both to wait for Mom
To come and take them home.

I've searched the area high and low,
But I can't find their dad.
He must have fled the scene,
I guess, and that is very bad."

The mother hugged the twins and said,
While wiping at a tear,
"He could not flee the scene, you see,
For he's been dead a year."

The cop just looked confused and asked,
"Now, how can that be true?"
The boys said, "Mommy, Daddy came
And left a kiss for you.

He told us not to worry
And that you would be all right,
And then he put us in this car with
The pretty, flashing light.

We wanted him to stay with us,
Because we miss him so,
But Mommy, he just hugged us tight
And said he had to go.

He said someday we'd understand
And told us not to fuss,
And he said to tell you, Mommy,
He's watching over us."

The mother knew without a doubt
That what they spoke was true,
For she recalled their dad's last words,
"I will watch over you."

The firemen's notes could not explain
The twisted, mangled car
And how the three of them escaped
Without a single scar.

But on the cop's report was scribed,
In print so very fine,
An angel walked the beat tonight
On Highway 109.

i think it should be okay to have abortions if it is a child who is only young and has been raped . some people should not have to hurt forever that way

That is like killing a baby because it's father is a bank robber!

Does Jehovah view matters any differently if the baby was the product of rape or incestuous relations? Though the act against the mother was criminal, the baby is not to blame. Terminating its life would only counter one act of violence with another. Certainly Jehovah realizes the emotional trauma such victims experience and can help mother and child to cope with the aftermath in a balanced way.

Viewing Abortion Godís Way
WHAT of the young girl who conceives a child out of wedlock and is completely unprepared for motherhood? Should she be allowed to bring a baby into the world? Godís feelings toward the baby have not changed just because its mother acted in an unwise and immoral way. The birth of a baby may indeed help its mother to realize the natural results of her immorality and thus impress upon her the wisdom of Godís laws. Putting away the consequence of her illicit sex act may leave her with the pain of guilt, or it may embolden her to further acts of immorality.
If there is no father to share the load, rearing the child wonít be easy. But a strong relationship with our heavenly Father can provide a mother with the moral and emotional strength, support, and guidance to do so. He has also provided the Christian congregation (of Jehovah Witnesswes) to help ease the burden of single parents.

I tend to use violence with another. If someone breaks in , I am shooting them. Yes God says turn the other check but what if it was someone you loved and she were near death , and they told you the only way to save her was to end the child ? What would you do then?

Okay sorry as well. We must have alot in common. My heart has been troubled for some time. Sometimes the best thing to do is run away from it all and start over. Trust in nothing anymore. Love is not meant sometimes, and it is best to let it go.

So...
You think Murder upon rape is ok?
Do you think the women that Killed their babies don't suffer?
Most of the time it's for a Man(term losely used) that don't want to be tied down... and we call it "Woman's rights"...
No! It's man's lack of balls, and desire for conquest!
Stand UP for what is RIGHT!
Stop Killing children... People will adopt!

I'll give you a hint... <1% of abortions are done for medical reasons!
99.9% are done for Convenience!
56,000,000 Babies just in America!
Over a 1.5 Million a year...
That is just NOT justifiable!
$300,000,000 out of our Pockets a year...
Kill Planned Parenthood... save our tax dollars...
Teach Kids to save themselves for their spouses!
