You will note I stated a singularity not a black hole. Facts are fun!
a black hole IS a singularity. Again, it would be most helpful if you understood these theroies you think you can debunk.

Why from a distance?
What distance?
Between his ears. Hears the deal, must see this God/Jesus first in the flesh. Not in a vision(mind games), not in the Bible(character), not on a piece of toast(image). 100% front and center, just us and the almighty. Till than its just another man made story. The gullible human animal has a big time imagination. Why believe in deep space aliens..........experience. Once God/Jesus appears the story will change.

That's not a law it's a theory and a failed theory at that. GR has been a proven failure in regards to Singularity's.
A theory that does not work everywhere in the universe needs to be modified.
No theory is perfect. Scientists hopefully know this. So theories do not "need to be modified". Theories are tools. We use them as long as we can and where we can.

Newton's Laws of Gravity have been "proven" not to work. Guess what? We still use them. They work fine for the vast majority of the time. We did not use Einstein's theories of gravity when we went to the Moon and back. We used Newton.

Heck most of the time we don't even use Newton when we work gravitational problems. Most of the time we go further back and use gravitational theories that existed before there were proper the concept of Laws or theories. Do you know whose gravity we use most of the time?

Of course you could! LOL
That atleast makes some sense. A god figure makes no sense and has been proven to be false and made up.

Just because people find meteorites, doesn't mean your video is not fake.
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?

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?

There are millions of christians world wide who are scientist, are you also including them.
used to be everyone pretty much 'believed' in religion. you had to or you were ostracized or outright killed. it takes a while for such worldwide cultural conformities to die out. the # of people moving away from these ridiculous myths is growing at a huge rate.

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?

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.
