I asked you before what was going through your head during those events. I didn't see an answer.

Now, you and mac have said you didn't have any hallucinations. Neither of you have indicated them being nothing more than close calls, Now, did you think you were going to die? Was there a fear of it? Was your fully functioning consciousness trying to figure how to get out of the situations, or were you just observing what was transpiring?

And none of the ones mentioned have a single shred of justification for their beliefs.

But that's okay-- you do not need to justify a hobby, right?

Good point. That's what I've been saying, what faith is required to not believe?

Maybe you weren't close enough. Try getting closer next time, and get back with us, if you can.

The whole basis of christianity is escaping death; the pipe dream of "eternal life". Quite sad and bordering on pathetic.

Exactly!

Show us the **proof**, show us the **facts**.

Faith is for the lazy of mind, who do not care to **see**.

You are in full projection mode. That means you don't "see" a damned thing, just your own thoughts blurting out into the void. You aren't looking at the light of your projections bouncing back to you.

But they appear to cause a reaction within your thick skull, Yoda man, to cause a response.

Not a void, just an empty enclosed space catching waves and sloshing around a bit.

And THIS is what Theists build their lives and those in their families around:

THE BIBLE: Back when the bible was written, then edited, then rewritten, then rewritten, then re-edited, then translated from dead languages, then rewritten, then edited, then rewritten, then given to Kings for them to take their favorite parts, the rewritten, then translated again and given to the pope for him to approve, then rewritten, then re-edited again, then re re re re re rewritten again, all based on stories that were told ORALLY 30-90 years AFTER they happened to people who didn't know how to write..so........!! pitiful!!!!!!

Yes, that is the one :) The audacity of those who were trying to scam their way into making that a legal course appalled me. It is a wonder that the USA has education at all with those types sitting on the school boards.

None owes justification for their beliefs, unless they state their beliefs are facts.

You are admitting you consider eternal life unpleasant.
