Who says aliens don't exist? I believe they have manipulated us here on this planet. We're not all products of just one handyman. lol

Correction God created natural laws he doesn't use them. If it's done by nature then the credit goes to whom ever created nature or the laws of physics.
That would be God.
He created it and used it. Just like how people create materials and use them for a purpose.

So what created the aliens?
Not sure yet. Still wondering what created God? Wait, we know God was created by the minds of primitive human animals, that's a fact. Aliens dwell in the vastness of the cosmos, their exact origins are a mystery.. Probably, born somewhere out there..........by a creator hole, no doubt. Really kind of scary to think about.

It would take a God to know what created God. As humans we can only understand how it's like to be humans and what we are capable of. So we don't have to worry about something beyond our comprehension.

What many skeptics don't want to accept is that the mind can do so many things. If we all take out that skeptic radar we could be more advanced and be able to manipulate everything with our own minds and perhaps things or life on other planets. But no, they dismiss this stuff as pseudo-science. Whatever.

So, from what you are saying, if a human, any human is face to face with an advanced alien being they would just smile and stick out their hand and say. "Greetings". Please, Cybele most humans are scared of the dark. You know the average human would be scared out of their already feeble mind. The first thing a human would do if confronted with that situation would be to totally block it from their scared little gray matter, then they wouldn't tell a soul. And, there lies the human factor. No problem learning about a God that's totally fiction. Say the word, "Advanced Alien" and only the brightest, smartest and truly intelligent individuals ears perk up and cant wait to make contact with the earths true designers. Its funny, the Bible first statement, "And God created the heavens and the earth" must be true if its in the Bible..........whatever!We don't know whats worse. That so many humans believe a story or that there are to many galaxies to comprehend....there's that word Cybele.

I would be scared if I'm confronted by an alien. It's bad enough that I had a dream about them. lol. We are not products of just one God. I believe there are beings from different dimensions whether they take the form of spirits, angels, or aliens. They're all at work here.

Chuckles, we don't need archaeology. It is fairly easy to see that London exists. If you want to I am sure that you could hire an archaeologist and he would verify that London is a real place for you too.

Do you not realize that you made a huge logical fail in your claim?

<quoted text> So conclusively, that does not say too much for your evidence.
Most biblical characters according to archaeology existed in true life bearing that same name unlike Spider man and Harry Porter. Liar!
You lost again.
Wrong, at best archaeology has identified a few possible places. Actual characters in the Bible are not well identified.

In fact if you want to rely on archaeologists then you don't believe even the book of Exodus. Archaeologists swear that if on the order of 1 to 2 million people were wandering the desert for forty years they would have found evidence of them.

You just shot yourself in both feet with this last post. I guess that evens out the limping.

Many places in Harry Potter have been confirmed to be real too. England, London, even certain railroad depots. Just because a few places in the Bible can be shown to have existed does very little to give the book any credence.
Spiderman is real too according to the standards you have just given.
That does not say too much for your evidence.
Another of Chucky’s arguments is that the Bible mentions actual historic people.
Chimney1 saw Obama’s picture in a Spiderman comic book and asked Chucky if Spiderman is an actual person.
Chucky never answered.

There seems to be little doubt that Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Lopez, Kanye West, Paris Hilton, Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Billy Mays, Charles Manson, and Sally Struthers are real people. All of these celebrities have appeared in South Park episodes. Furthermore, South Park is an actual place. I asked Chucky if the South Park series is also true, but he never answered.

You did not read what i wrote. You really do lack comprehension in English.
Majority of the biblical characters have been archaeologically verified unlike Harry Porter and Spider man( fiction).

Lastly, if not for archaeology some of the places people thought never existed, mentioned by the bible have been archaeologically verified.
London is a real place, just like Bethlehem, but the characters for Harry Porter are fictitious.

We should not worry what Charles believes and don't understand. If he were a vicious person who follows the teachings of the bible, that's something to watch out for. It's people like him who needs to follow the bible and not someone ill-minded who will use it as a weapon against his enemies.

Liar!
The bible has about 66 books, if there is no discoveries yet for exodus, it does not mean that the bible is false.
Other books of the bible have been archaeologically verified, just accept your error.

Hello Tinka...I hope you are doing well
Hey just reading the posts and I was thinking that even people sharing the same dna they all tend to be somewhat different and then out of the circle of ancestry we can find much that keeps our intellect functioning...

Well at least once upon a time, what makes some things seem to be less (evolved)?

Is it lack of things a loss I have my ideas but why even bother if that which doesn't understand it anyway because many things are that learned through experience and well while while it is time the process is personal...

How much of what we are going through will actually mean something...

What I mean is when you have to read a paper for a test or some study you go over it and over it hopefully you have given yourself some time, because during I have found it is good to let it sit for a bit and then go back to it to see what stuck and then the read through from that point many times seems much clearer...

Haste an emotion or something else?

Man honest I don't know what I will decide on how to get through the homeless phase in my time having been that I have yet still to figure out how to really put it all down somehow for my own self...
