How?
Can you control nature?
Nature goes on without any interference, meteorologist studies it, but not too accurately. They may forecast right and some times, wrong.
This alone lives us to the very question, " God ".

Whoa. wait a sec here...
Was not man created in the image of God?
Certainly not the physical form (If god has a physical form, He'd have to be Female. Men can not give birth to life. Unless he/she is transgender at will. How confusing is that?)
Was man created with the thinking of God? Doubtful there. We're not omniscient. And the God of the bible sounds insane but has a plan?
What else is there than the spirit? Which some would call the soul?
No measurable physical evidence except by assertion.
Are you paid to talk for others? Lol.
Mr. Mouthpiece. Lol.

YHWH....JEHOVAH is Gods name...check it out TOOL. These jokers, crappy religionists will be here, but not forever....
This quote below is from a Jewish site. I figure they MUST know god’s name…after all they invented him.

The most important of God's Names is the four-letter Name represented by the Hebrew letters Yod-Hei-Vav-Hei (YHVH). It is often referred to as the Ineffable Name, the Unutterable Name or the Distinctive Name. Linguistically, it is related to the Hebrew root Hei-Yod-Hei (to be), and reflects the fact that God's existence is eternal. In scripture, this Name is used when discussing God's relation with human beings, and when emphasizing his qualities of loving kindness and mercy. It is frequently shortened to Yah (Yod-Hei), Yahu or Yeho (Yod-Hei-Vav), especially when used in combination with names or phrases, as in Yehoshua (Joshua, meaning "the Lord is my Salvation"), Eliyahu (Elijah, meaning "my God is the Lord"), and Halleluyah ("praise the Lord").

The first Name used for God in scripture is Elohim. In form, the word is a masculine plural of a word that looks feminine in the singular (Eloha). The same word (or, according to Rambam, a homonym of it) is used to refer to princes, judges, other gods, and other powerful beings. This Name is used in scripture when emphasizing God's might, His creative power, and His attributes of justice and rulership. Variations on this Name include El, Eloha, Elohai (my God) and Elohaynu (our God).

God is also known as El Shaddai. This Name is usually translated as "God Almighty," however, the derivation of the word "Shaddai" is not known. According to some views, it is derived from the root meaning "to heap benefits." According a Midrash, it means, "The One who said 'dai'" ("dai" meaning enough or sufficient) and comes from the fact that when God created the universe, it expanded until He said "DAI!" (perhaps the first recorded theory of an expanding universe?). The name Shaddai is the one written on the mezuzah scroll. Some note that Shaddai is an acronym of Shomer Daltot Yisrael, Guardian of the Doors of Israel.

Another significant Name of God is YHVH Tzva'ot. This Name is normally translated as "Lord of Hosts." The word "tzva'ot" means "hosts" in the sense of a military grouping or an organized array. The Name refers to God's leadership and sovereignty. Interestingly, this Name is rarely used in scripture. It never appears in the Torah (i.e., the first five books). It appears primarily in the prophetic books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi, as well as many times in the Psalms.

Ofcourse you cannot. The God of the proven, that is why the faith, is still very much alive, despite the ups and down. Simple.

The United States conquered England in 1776. As of that date the U.S. became free.
England no longer owned property in the U.S.
England no longer controlled business in the U.S.
England no longer controlled the American language.
England no longer imported tea to the U.S.
...... etc.
Do you have any clue how stupid you look, just because you don't understand 'Own'?
You are taking it too far, Mister.
My position is, without England, the US would have been, a Dutch, French, German or even an Indian nation. So, thanks or kudos to England for that. That is all.

"Also this link fails to establish that human fossils have been found with dino fossils."
This is true however man foot print have been found in stone with dinosaurs foot prints. And when science claimed that they were faked. Heavy equipment lifted up undisturbed rock layers exposing the human and dinosaurs track could not have been faked or even seen for thousands of years.
http://www.discoverynews.us/DISCOVERY%2520MUS...
"When evolutionary philosophers criticized this historic discovery and claimed that someone must have made the human tracks with a hammer and chisel, a bull-dozer was brought to the site to uncover more of the bed-rock.
The heavy equipment carefully uncovered more of the Cretaceous bedrock and even more human tracks were discovered with dinosaur tracks! Humans and dinosaurs apparently roamed the earth together!"
You do know that the "Answers in Genesis" web-site is telling their fundamentalist 'friends' to not use this argument anymore...don't you.

It HAS been shown to be NOT true.

Correction:
I meant that, the God of the bible, can be proven to date, because his church, despite the ups and down, are still very much alive.

It was just an error.
I meant that, the God of the bible to date, can be proven, using the church or faith as a testimony. If he does not exist, the faith would have died long ago.

There will always be those whose internal anxiety about death will have them hiding from their capacity to forecast their own terminal demise. That my friend is the strength of religious beliefs. All you have to do is take Pascal's wager. Just to let you know... When you bet on religion, the house (otherwise known as the church) always wins. Just remember to collect your winnings while the worms are eating away at your eyes. Fitting end to a myopic existence.

Do you understand the meaning of the word, " developed " ?
So you can understand that the english language developed, but you can't understand that it contains words borrowed from another language, then "developed" along with the language. What do you think, that once a word is assimilated into the english language all ties are severed with it's origins from another language? You are stupid. So, so stupid.

Yes, you dumbass, and that origin extends into other languages. Goodness you are stupid. You can't treat every single language as a totally independent entity from other languages, that's not how it works.
