That has to be, bar none, the dumbest thing you have ever said. I suggest you buy a dictionary. Or maybe you could just pray for the definition but I think the trip to Wal-Mart would be faster. Then again, that is my opinion.

The quote you list has nothing to do with Jesus' work. It is from the Book of John and is what Jesus said to Thomas after he appeared to him post resurrection. I would be nice if you could get your own book right.
As for questioning those that witnesses the events in the Bible, that would be very hard since they are 2000+ years dead. As for questioning those who claim to have witnessed events today, well should we just take you on fact that you are telling the truth? Which is more likely, that all the rules that govern our universe are broken for one person or that the person in question is lying or mistaken via ignorance? I do not mock anyone unless they prove themselves to deserve it, by action or attitude. As I have said before, I know and love many people who believe in God, and I was raised in church. But my kids also used to have imaginary friends that they were convinced were 100% real and interactive. The only difference is that they eventually let go of childish ideas, something even the Bible suggests doing. It can't be blasphemy if you don't believe it. Otherwise all people are guilty of blasphemy against some God or another, since there is equal proof for the existence of all Deities.
What "proof" do you need? Isn't it harder to believe the whole universe and you, as a human, just happened?

Actually that is not a hard concept for me to believe. All it requires is that I accept what we see as true and that I end the arrogant delusion that humanity is somehow more special and precious than all other life.

As for proof of God? How about the healing of an amputee by regrowing of the lost limb. How about an undeniable proof of existence that is plain to all mankind and 100% undeniable, like the words "I am The Lord of all, God of Abraham" appearing on the moon where everyone can see it, take pictures and record it. For an all-powerful deity none of these should be any stretch of power or ability.

I believe limbs will be restored, tears will be no more when Jesus returns to establish His Kingdom here on earth. Meanwhile, Satan runs the world.
Do you really think an insect is equal to a human? Why?
As for proof, its called faith.

See, "When he returns in Glory" is not proof of any sort. That is an event that has been claimed for 2000 years. You asked for my idea of proof. I have it to you. Why can it not happen now? Why some promise for the unnamed tomorrow contingent only on blind faith today? Is God not more powerful than Satan? Can he not exercise his power or will despite the Fallen Angel? Sounds a lot like Popeye's friend Wimpy's scam of "I'll gladly pay you for on next Tuesday for a Hamburger today".

As for your insect/human question, the answer depends on what grounds you are referring to. Insects are superior to me in the area of manual flight but I suspect I am the better driver. Truth is this, Earth would survive the extinction of humanity with barely a shudder but if all insects were to go extinct it would be a major issue since they fulfill a broader range of rolls than humanity. They are both predators and prey, keeping some species in check and feeding others. Their loss would be a globe shaking event. Humanity is not in either position. Population numbers would likely recover without us. Our greatest accomplishments would mostly be gone in a matter of a couple centuries. Equality has to be based on sufficient similarity. Your example does not offer that. Might as well ask if I am superior to Microbes. The answer is no since they are what keep everything on Earth flowing. They go away and absolutely everything dies. All of this does not mean I will not kill an ant or take medicines to destroy an illness. I recognize the role I (humanity) play(s) in the game of life and it's a small one.

Speak for yourself, shit-for-brains. You might come closer to the truth. Faith and Reason are not enemies. In fact, the exact opposite is true! One is absolutely necessary for the other. All reasoning ultimately traces back to faith in something that you cannot prove or have yet to.

Such a picture of Christly love you are.

I can have faith in something but that is a far cry from saying I devote my life to an idea that is not provable and then reject anything that stands opposed to it. Here is the difference. If any belief I have right now was proven to patently false tomorrow I would abandon it without a delay. Religious faith says you must believe it despite anything that shows you are wrong. A rational man might think he is headed North but will check his compass to be sure. A Faithful (religious) person will ignore what his compass says and simply go on their heart/faith/teachings regardless.

You are wearing that line out shit-for-brains, about the fourth time you've used the same. With a limited mind such as yours, I completly understand...

I don't concern myself with labels my friend. I say, my views about God are my own, and you are welcome to your own.
Of course, I could be missing something. But that's impossible. I'm perfect.

When I'm dealing with people who have a hard time understanding I have found that repetition is often best. Yes, your views are your own an exactly like everyone else who believes like you. I can't think of any religious idea that you have espoused that was even the slightest bit original. You, much like a couple others, like to post drivel and then do nothing but toss insults. SfB, tickbird, blah, blah, blah. How about you dazzle and honor us with your unique view of religion.

Not by the likes of you in this lifetime, unless your using someone else's work, words, books. Still no absolutes that everyone agrees with + or - 2. From what little I know, I believe there are no absolute truths. Still, this is murky territory. But anywho, in that case, if you don't believe everything that man writes, then why do you?

IMHO, Well sure, it's hot, but it's a dry heat...

If you had any comprehension skills to speak of you would know from all the pokes we passed, that with me its, God yes - religion no, many years of study. Save your childish insults for your children. Choose whatever you wish, allow others the same.

Apparently your not worth the effort or perhaps seriously, it doesn't really matter what you think, not much you could do about the cycles in the first place.

I'm more than aware of your cry of "God yes, Religion no!". What I am even more painfully aware of is the fact that those exact same words are the cry of countless others who think they are making a break from the religion garbage of there parents. Yet all they, and you, do is spout the same nonsense. Same trash, new bag. There is not a single orginial thought in you or anyone else who falls to the cry "God yes, Religion no!" Just a bunch of people who like to consider themselves new or edgy while actually doing nothing to change or advance the status quo. Christianity has been pretty much the same for 2000 years and in this area of the world it is the same message that great grandpa heard. So dazzle us with your insight. Show us just how different you are from the "Religion".

The truth must dazzle gradually or you and your kind would be blind.

I believe John's warning at the end of the book of Revelation of "adding to or subtracting from" his book was exactly that, his book, and doesn't pertain to the KJV since it didn't exist at that time.

The original texts in the Old Testament were scribed in Aramaic, a dialect of Hebrew that has no literal Greek translation. The greeks did their best to translate it and alot of meaning was lost in the process...

I believe the God who created the universe is indeed real, although I believe that writings about this concept are flawed, and even when they are close to the reality, man has a distinct way of completely and utterly mischaracterizing and interpreting. The concept of God is a matter of each individual's belief and there are probably no two alike, not much unlike any individual's opinions about any given subject.

Everything has some sort of creationary force behind it. Everything. Be it the chicken and the egg, stars, planets, etc... human birth... Well, I don't know your personal habits or what you see in a mirror, so if you say you've come from an ape I won't embarrass you further. But everyone else on earth, including Charles, has descended from human parents and nothing else.

It's obvious you haven't got a clue as to the intent of my posts. How can anyone not allow someone to believe in something. Religions do that. I am fully aware of your intent. Accusations, innuendos, and personal attacks.

To most Christians, the Bible is like a software license. Nobody reads it. They just scroll to the bottom and click I agree.
