I was referring to the logical fallacy you made wherein I require 100% of the population of the Earth to witness something firsthand before I accept it as true.

As far as the dinosaur response. I'm not refuting that dinosaurs and birds are not of common ancestry. I'm reminding everyone that 20 years ago, not everyone agreed. The majority of scientists overwhelmingly agreed that they were all cold-blooded and shared ancestry with reptiles and not birds. My point is, scientists can draw the wrong conclusion with what evidence they have, and then completely change their stance when more or different evidence comes forth. "

I fail to see ANY negatives in your 'point'. Are you trying to tell me that it's better to form some belief hundreds/thousands of years ago based on weak evidence and then never change it, no matter what evidence we uncover? I know you'll say that you aren't, but how would anyone get that by looking at the things you say here?

That's the nearest house to that location. But since it's a rural road, it could be a mile away from there. Still, would be very easy to find if one were on the road.
Since only your posts show up that way, and everyone else's looks normal, evidence would suggest it is not my equipment.

How many eyewitnesses of a miracle are necessary for you to believe then?

No, I am just saying that science's stance can change based off of new discoveries. While I don't believe we will find a cave with "Adam and Eve wuz here" written on it, I just don't think atheists should use science to refute all points of why people are religious. They may not have all the evidence in yet.

None... I don't care if 4 Billion people witness something and claim it to be some miraculous thing... I still would not Believe... I would require Evidence that could be studied, verified, validated, tested and reproduced .... The Human Species See's a tiny portion of the light spectrum, hears a tiny sliver of the audio spectrum and sense a tiny tidbit of the em spectrum all together... And then the species has the ability to rationalize the observed in irrational, illogical and many times completely Wrong ways...

Q-man summed it up well. But, you might want to google "why eye witness testimony is unreliable". I've said it before, any attorney will tell you that it's a lousy type of "evidence".

This is highly insulting. You don't get it. You won't get it. You are not open to the possibility of being wrong, nor of others being right and not sharing your lack of ability to reason.
You are taking things out of context,which I really did not expect from you;
You obviously,wether by accident or design,chose to post what was convenient for you

Here is what I posted,in it's entirety.

Your assumption that my mind deceived me into believing in God,because I wanted to,can also be applied to your situation,Your mind deceived you into not believing in God,because that is what you wanted.

So ,no,I was not insulting,merely pointing out that what you wrong fully assumed about me and my beliefs,could also be applied to you and your beliefs.
So i did not insult you,and I will not apologize for posting the truth.
But ,I do want to thank you Your comments have served to further strengthen my faith...Although that was not your intention
that is what you managed to accomplish.
But,I see no reason to continue this disccussion.....I believe the reasons for not continuing should be fairly obvious...

That's exactly the type of answer I suspected I would receive. Of course all 4 billion would be completely wrong, even if you were one of them.

Sorry, but if I witnessed a long bearded man with a stick make water part, I wouldn't give a rip what an attorney had to say about it.

"My perception of the bible" is it's a story written to promote a race of people above all others and to justify their hate, blood lust, perversion, theft, and evil
We realize that stuff.

What is your problem? It's just a BOOK, and as with ANY book, people will and DO, perceive things differently.

Aren't you glad we don't live in some CommunisTic type country, where reading (among other things) is sometimes dictated!!! Wouldn't that just SUCK!

PS: Your post reads much more intelligently, and far less accusatory now!! Good job!
