It's a cult.
No it's not.
Yes it is.
No it's not.

There's a God.
No there's not.
Yes there is.
No there's not.

Science
Bible
Science
Bible

Can we simply conclude that for those who believe, let them believe. Surely there can exist Science and Religion. Certainly some aspects pose contradictions, but neither have been perfected, thus to some point flawed.

An excellent example is Fritjof Capra's believe (even though he was a theorist) that there was more to it than what we understood; a point when religion (or spiritualism) and science met. Or (my hero) Lenderman's God Particle, where some speculate (much to Lederman's disapproval of course) that the Higg's boson may have been created by a higher force as a deterrent. I'm not trying to start an argument or take sides, only to try to find some neutral ground.

God is dope. It's why he created dopa-mine in your brain. This chemical in the brain has important roles: behavior, cognition, voluntary movement, punishment and reward, attention and learning, mood.

If you let God play a role with dopamine, you will experience a natural high. That's what you call heaven.

If you add God to the effects of dopamine you will be healthy. Did you know that alcohol withdrawal can cause schizophrenia symptoms to occur? If one experiences these chemical imbalance, it's best to be aware with God in mind or you will not understand negative effects in your brain.

Somebody said that god created water before he created light.
Light comes from stars.
Oxygen comes from stars.
Therefore, stars, which create light, were necessary before water could possibly form.
Why are you always so freaking angry?
Nobody here raped you.
There was light before there were stars.

if adding god to your life kept you healthy it would be used to make huge bucks by people around the world.(along with the fact that people of faith are no more healthy than others...)

It's the lack of understanding of God that makes people ill. And you are not among the healthy skeptics either. You just want to be a bully to those who believe in God because of your lack of understanding of God. Some believers don't understand God as well. That's why we will never resolve the ills of society. But sin makes life interesting! Sin-chronicity...

No, dear, the facts do not back up your statement at all. non-believers are in no way less healthy than people of faith.

i understand the myths of gods and goddesses very well, hence my reasoning that they are myths.(along with the total lack of any evidence, such as for your belief that faith makes you healthy...)

not bullying, just pointing out facts. theat may seem like bullying to you because you sense the truth of my statements and it shakes your worldview...

Your reason is not even logical come to think of it. I don't sense truth in your statements or I would've agreed with you. You fail in providing evidence that something can create itself by chance and evolve on its own without any use of outside force. How do you suppose energy existed when everything has energy. E=MC^2

God is the source if energy. But you will deny it because you have your own issues. What is it?

Well, in this case, nano is correct: there was light before there were stars. The cosmic background radiation, for example, was around long before any stars appeared AND (to avoid technicalities) emitted in the visible part of the spectrum before the first stars.

Chance has nothing to do with deism. Eat shit, you lying fruit fly.

You do know that all I have to do is use the old metaleye on your avatar to know who you are, right? I can dig the copyright from it.

You should be more careful about exposing yourself or implicating the innocent. It's not that hard to prove you are lying. >:}

"H20 cannot exist in stars, but H and O separately can. Hydrogen is the basic building material of the universe, created in the Big Bang. Oxygen is created by nuclear reactions in stars. If you put H and O together in the cold of space, you get H2O. There are enourmous amounts of water in space. In fact, nearly all of the oxygen in space is in the form of water or carbon monoxide. Similarly, most the carbon and nitrogen in space are also in their most hydrogenated forms: methane (CH4) and ammonia (NH3)."
