Thanks for the information,I knew there were at least 40.
Glad you corrected me
God bless you...
At least,some of us,instead of asking for a sign,have diligently sought God.
In the process,he has revealed to us,his Presence and therefore we believe that Jesus Christ is Lord
I am sorry I didn't intend to correct you I only added to what you said.

There are going to be similarities in such schemes.
We aren't talking about the same similarities.

<quoted text>What you describe as a miracle is called statistics. If 100 people have cancer and 50 of the pray for help while 50 do not then guess what will probably happen? They will die at a rate consistent with statistical data. You will not see a big spike in the survival rate of the people who pray. Yet if you asked any single person who DID pray and who DID survive longer they will probably say that God answered their prayers.

Yet that is like being the one guy who smokes 50 years and does not get cancer waling around saying "Smoking doesn't cause cancer. Look at me!"

It is a misunderstanding of statistics and reality.
Sorry but I disagree

<quoted text>I've heard it said in general, by more than a few before.

I kind of find a lot of error with the statement too though. No one should seriously think they should have that much "control" over another human individual.

A thought at having any parental figure like that, would be cause to recoil!!

(but the Mr Cosby character no doubt, said it tongue and cheek, with best intentions for whom ever it was directed at no doubt, rather than some sort of personal fulfillment of ego)
Right. Which is why it was funny.

<quoted text>You have no idea what I have tried or not, so quit jumping to conclusions. Sounds like you just are parroting propaganda.
I am asking questions here and you have poor answers. So many are like, well god has his own logic or justice. Sorry, but if you think I must try to forgo the logic in my mind, you are making no sense.
Your god refuses to present himself. It is not logical I should believe in a being that has zero evidence of existence. I have looked for evidence, but none ever comes, yet you claim I do not look for god. Well I say he is not showing himself for me to see.
So you say Muslim doctrine is why you do not believe in Mohammed? Well same goes for me and the bible. It is an unbelievable story with no evidence and concepts that are not moral or logical to me. Same goes for the book of Mormon.
It is not justice to punish someone for not believing in something that has zero evidence. Why would I believe in an unjust god?
God tells us how to find Him. He does not tell us to dig up fossils to find Him. He does not tell us to analyze patterns to find Him. He does not tell us to search for Him in the clouds. He tells us to pray to Him and listen for the still small voice. This must be done with humility and a full intent to act on the answer that you receive.

No one needs someone to die of cancer to be stronger. Sorry, but your excuses are just not cutting it.
No I didn't say answered prayers are not God's going. What? How did you get that?

And no, maybe someone else learned or grew stronger from someone passing. The person that passed is in a better place anyway if they were a believer. And it could be argued that the non-believer is in a better place too.

<quoted text>You claim to get answers from some holy ghost, yet seem to be short on answers quite a lot.
I think bad things happen to good people because no god is out their who cares or can do a thing about it. You see, that is a square, logical answer. You fail to have them, so why should I believe some magical ghost is helping you answer questions? Maybe you fail to ask the hard questions?
Maybe I'm not at a point in my life where I am ready to receive that answer. I have prayed about this type thing before and felt the peace that the HG brings. He is also called the Comforter. I felt peace knowing the person was in a better place.
However, Jesus told us we can know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, so I continue to better myself and prepare myself so I may learn more. So far, this has proved successful. So if I learn God's purposes in this case, I will share with anyone that will listen or is prepared to listen.

<quoted text>I have been listing my reasons, but for some reason you cannot understand them. Are you blind to my list?

So now you have a new reason for suffering? So now it is Satan's fault? Guess you believe we are being punished for the crime of Adam and Eve?
Why did your friends kid not suffer the loss of an ear then? Your story has contradictions. Either god can help us not suffer, or he cannot. Either he is unfairly helping some and ignoring others, or he is not.

I agreed to nothing with a god.
Your reasons are that you want proof. I have told you that you won't get it. And I have told you how you can learn for yourself. We can banter forever, but you won't learn anything from me. You have to reach out to God yourself and receive your own answer.

And if I'm right, you did agree to come here. You accepted God's plan.

No, moron. No. I've already told you that this isn't something that requires discussion, and you quoted it. The only valid answer is a number. Otherwise, shut up and don't even pretend like you're answering anything I've asked. You are not.
The fact is ,you refused to answer my question

"You need ask yourselves,When have you ever made an honest effort to seek God?

You could not answer it,because you have never tried.
Therefor ;You have concluded that;

"The only valid answer is a number."

But,what you failed to do,is, explain the foundation on which you base your conclusion.
If that foundation is not logical,then the basis for your conclusion is deemed invalid.

If your conclusioln is based on the premise,that that is the only answer acceptable to you,then logic dictates thast you are illogical and so is your conclusions.

Which may lead to your misinterpretation of MORON.

Doctors will diagnose on the safe side with cancer, meaning if there's even a chance it's cancer they call it that until they know for 100% certainty, they continue to treat it as cancer. There are more people in cancer treatment without cancer than with, as a result, which is not a bad thing because most treatments won't harm a healthy person. Many times the cancer turns out to be a passing infection, depending on the location that could be another problem but not usually, or a collection of fat cells.

Sheesh, you are not even close to skeptical of anything.
No no. This massive lump was not a misdiagnosis. It was physically there and visible when the decision was made for removal. There was no question this was cancer.

Anyhow,to get to the point..
If one happens to look behing your sofa,one will most likely not

What they may very well find,is the stack of gibberish you have stored there,and which you use as reference material for when you post in Topix....I am sure your closets and bathtub are filled with the same.

I didn't answer your question because it's stupid and irrelevant. You can't spell, can't form proper sentences, and you use about three times as many commas as any same person ever would. You don't get to claim anything in this universe is "not logical". You don't get to make some poorly typed "I know you are but what am I" statement in response to being called a moron.

I'll make this very simple. You are a 1. Unless you have a problem with being declared a 1, then you can tell me which other number you are.

I welcome any other more rational people, regardless of belief, to actually respond to what I asked.

"Uplifting?" From a religion religion that tells you that everyone is worthless, incapable, and useless. Scam tactic #3, beat down the mark then offer them snake oil that will "lift" them back up.

That's one way, and nothing but assertions. Without any actual evidence, you have nothing to back those assertions up. So, your bible is nothing but myths and legends.
