There is a still small voice, and it always answers in Truth...
The Loud voice I heard was a major intercessory voice to make me listen, as I was just about to do something stoooopid!
I hope you can hear any voice from God... soon!

"At 0.04 seconds?"
LOL! A NEW detail.
This tale grows and grows.
How many other ways do you think you can work
the "magic 4" into your story?
Maybe you saw the "4 Horsemen" while you were riding in the police car?
Perhaps you were the 4th case on the docket?
The courtroom and your cell BOTH HAD 4 WALLS! Yes! That's it!
Not a "new" detail!
I've always said it!
But please do... believe what you want!

YaA as far as all that's concerned, I think you are (not) looking at the bigger picture of it all, close enough.
Catholics believe in Jesus, the cross, the golden rule and faith.
Look a few things up before you run your clueless pie hole and just ASSUME you know what you're talking about-because honestly, you are sounding like you have no idea.
Look up Homily, Stations of the Cross, Lent blahblahblah.
The traditions of culture and custom, will all boil back down to the SAME belief, ulitmetely.
Just because someone brushes their teeth with a different type toothbrush than you, doesn't mean they don't believe in toothbrushes.
And just because you might not SEE one sitting in the specific pew-brushholder where YOU think it should be sitting, doesn't mean it doesn't exist...as pewbrushholders aren't what actually matters anyway.
Maybe I prefer to keep my pewbrushholder rituals private, because I really don't care about just "impressing" others for the sake of just that, because as many of us know, just sitting in a pewbrushholder regulary, does not make a toothpick, a toothbrush.
MMM k?
LOL

You guys keep forgetting this part of the equation. How convenient.
No we don't forget that part!
Do you understand "God is Spirit"????
What in the heck do any of us know about what's in the Spirit world, and where God got His knowledge...
except what is written in the Bible, and what He is willing to share?
Ask Him yourself!

Yes, my research indicates that the levitathan is described in Job 41 and mentioned in Isaiah 27:1. However, you breach logic when you make a huge leap of faith to believe that it was probably some dinasaur-like creature and that lived alongside modern man. I have no problem with your making either of those assumptions, but not as a logical consequence of any solid empirical evidence. It’s quite OK to believe what you believe because you believe that’s what the Bible teaches, but doing so does not require that your belief is a result of scientific inquiry.
Science is not a comprehensive, rock solid account of everything we want to understand. It is only a method of systematic inquiry guided by disciplined thinking, including logic. There are more gaps in our knowledge of the universe than facts understood. Such gaps are not flaws. In science, flaws reference failures adhering to its principles and methods.
Religion is working well when it provides all the answers. That’s not the purpose of science.
Religion does not produce all the answers.
Science has provided humans with more answers by far.
The answers religion produces are highly questionable. I call them guesses, not answers. Guesses based upon what ancient man thought due to the severe lack of scientific answers. Ancient man had to produce answers to pacify his need to have some direction. Ancient man had little answers for the world around him, so his imagination took over.
This is why we see so many various and different religions and superstitions. They are as different as ones imagination can produce.
They are still being produced today, note Scientology.

It was just a voice that came from everywhere!
.
Did God really say not to eat of that tree...
Same thing he does to every doubter!
Gets you to doubt God's words, makes your logic all twisted!
You say that your smart enough not to put "God did it" in the gaps
of your knowledge, but that lends satan to put anything in the gaps... even when it doesn't work, and some put manufactured evidence to make it look right!
Kind of like Obama's crew!
So this voice came from everywhere, but you can't tell us what it sounded like?

I put nothing in a gap of knowledge.
It looks like you see science as Satan. Demeaning science is the way to faith.

The Bible starts with Genesis and God created the Heavens, Man, Animals and everything else in first 6 days... Then follow time line about 4,000 years til Christ and 2,000 after ....
This calculation must assume the bible speaks of every generation of man. Not to mention, the calculation must assume the bible has zero flaws.
You evidently trust ancient mans word, one hundred percent and discount modern mans findings that prove the contrary.
Demeaning science is the way to faith.
This is why I protest your faith.

The word “curious” has two meanings:(1) eager to learn something,(2) strange/unusual. Since you only offer answers and ask no question, you don’t appear to be curious in the first sense. Your answers arise, albeit seemingly unwittingly, from verbal gymnastics and riddled thinking. Why talk in puzzles?
Are you suggesting I change my name to the Riddler?
I ask questions,if I see a need.
And I answer according to what I believe.
I also understand,we are all at liberty to read or not read what someone may
So what is your point?

So you finally admit you cannot know how it all started, great. Now stop demanding we know how it all started.
How it all started has nothing to do with my atheism, and if your religion is based upon it, then your religion is based upon something you cannot know.

We list reasons every day of why we do not believe in your god, so trying to show a gap of knowledge is not going to change anything about our non belief.
You have a gap that is equal to ours. No one can know how all started. But you and your team sure have been quite arrogant about this topic lately and keep claiming to know. Thanks for finally admitting you do not know.

I use Kaspersky Security for our Macs and also the Windows version for that ubiquitous PC I keep to remain humble and remember that technology isn’t exactly perfect. I’ve used several antivirus programs through the years and strongly prefer Kaspersky. In my opinion, Symmantec and Norton are the worst, McAfee marginally OK, Intego better and Kaspersky clearly the best and easiest to use (just go with the default settings; it updates automatically several times daily).

Where it came from?
I am not moving the goal posts,.
You are trying to convince me that there is no God
God has proven to ME,that HE is,in no uncertain terms.
My faith is not based on what you may or may not believe.
I you want to believe that The BB was an accident,or was bound to happen,or it was a coincident ,does not matter.
I know what I believe, why I believe and in whom I believe.
God and Jesus Christ.
My beliefs are not based on someone's opinion or theories based on a non foundation.
We have already talked about that
You ,Iagio,Cromium and the rest of the nonbelievers,spend more time talking about God than most Christians do.
Why are you all so concerned in what I may or may not believe?
We tell you constantly why we oppose blind belief. One reason is the demeaning attitude towards science it clearly creates.
I cannot prove god is a myth, no more than you can prove Zeus is a myth.
How or why the big bang went down as it did have no bearing on my atheism. For some reason it seems to have a bearing on your faith though.
But for some reason, how and why god came to be has no bearing on your faith. The contradiction is curious to me.
