Who are you talking to here? Evolutionary scientists do not believe that life is an accident. Anybody who told you this was lying and I would be very wary in believing anything that they told me.

Your watchmaker fallacy (I found a cell phone) fails as a proper analogy. I can demonstrate it with one simple question: Does a cellphone have babies?

Well no longer proof because of the ability to fake videos.
If I see a meteorite and I do not take a photo does that mean I did not see it?
Faked videos are easily detected.

if you attempt to use the fact that you saw something as proof, that would be silly. many people say they see ghosts, but there are no ghosts.

Did they? Or are they just making it up ( like a the crop circle)so they get the get credit.

Seems to me, that anyone who would make up a crop circle to deceive other people in the first place, would have a little problem with credibility.

But you without a doubt, believe their story? why?

<quoted text>we have ways of determining if videos have been faked. people try it all the time with "UFO videos and they are always busted. do you have a point?
of course...but that does not mean that all videos are fake...they are not all proven to be fake, as you suggest.

One day, you will understand that.
No, it was some guy pounding on my heart...

i'm sure almost dying was very scary for you, and it was provbably a life changing event, it usually is. but oit was just your brain, not a supernatural being communicating with you.. why doesn't god communicate with you now, and if you think he does, again, you need counseling...

You claim GOD to actually exist, so we ask proof.
You ignore the questions we ask and so can't understand us.
Your attributions are not proof to us, especially not in a moment when the brain start failing.
Why can't you like Dogen state that you have had mystical experiences and more of these phenomena.
Because you did not.
BUT NO...YOU CLAIM GOD!
Who else should we ask.
We've read the books.
God the giver and taker of life do exist, your ignorance may not allow you to see that.
Leave Dogen to his beliefs, you are clueless.

there has yet to be a video of a UFO, or a ghost, or any such thing that waan't proven fake.

there are videos or photos out there of fuzzy things, but that is not proof of anything.

summation... no proof of those things.

God has always been there for me.
You are the one that needs counseling.
He has delivered me from accidents, attacks and many more.
You will understand that one day.
