So true.. the religious fail miserably as they have no evidence, but tons of zeitgeist.<quoted text>
All living biological things die. Itís a part of the life cycle that you learned in school. Be it flowers, trees, grass, animals, and humanity thereís will be an end to life and it comes through illnesses.
Illness has a way of taking the cockiness & arrogance out of someone. Putting that aside mankind has made great strides in treating diseases and many diseases are preventable. Man has also had more to do with killing himself than God did.
Some people do a much better job than others in taking care of their body. Some do a very poor job as those who smoke for example. Other examples mans overt use of asbestos pre 1990ís in just about every building product known. Scientist knew it would cause cancer but it was used anyway.
Sexually Transmitted Diseases which could include Ebola & AIDs can be prevented by abiding by the laws of God established in the Old Testament. Lack of discretion and multiple sex partners has killed billions. But you want to blame mans indiscretions on God?
This forum is open to everyone providing they follow Topix rules. You donít own it and I donít own it. God has been worshipped since the beginning of mankind. Adam was the first man and first biologist. Therefore he was the first scientist. You are a descendant of Adam and Noahís children.
I enjoy sparring with Atheist. The downside is most Atheist are predictable and unable to think for themselves. They do a very poor job of reading & comprehending. Very seldom if ever does an Atheist answer a question. The reason? They canít and thatís what makes this enjoyable.
I enjoy the rants of those who believe in these superstitions because they are unintentionally funny, and entirely too obtuse to understand.
"Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived."
I have asked these two questions repeatedly - no one has ever answered them and the reason is obvious...
Stump a theist!
Ask them WHY they believe in gods, in particular the Christian one.
Consult your clergy, ask this and report back to this forum the answer you received.
Ask your clergy for evidence that proves your God is the one true God in a way that religions other than yours cannot do.
Ask your clergy for evidence that proves your holy book aka The Bible is true in a way that religions other than yours cannot do with their alleged Holy Book(s).
"God is an ever receding pocket of scientific ignorance."

If you pray for rain long enough, it eventually does fall. If you pray for floodwaters to abate, they eventually do. The same thing happens in the absence of prayers.
OMG ! is that a miracle or what?
