With my last post, I meant you can add the two numbers of the year you were born to the two numbers of the age you will be this year and get the number 113.

To say this is all an accident which occurred "somehow" just seems to me ludicrous at best.
Or perhaps it was merely the forces of nature which are not accidental.'Accident' implies 'randomness'. And nature is not random.

Not always anyway.

Perhaps, but you were still an accident, a throwback to the neanderthal likely.

It is plain to notice in our visible cosmos the pattern of branching that is repeated for each system. From logarithmic spirals and spiral galaxies to root systems and tree branches. Everything is a miracle of design and each system will follow patterns specific to each kind. The divine hand of God was at work with the whole proportion of our material existence.

Yes, the pattern is there and it is proof in itself of an intelligent designer and you and I know who he is. God Bless.

But dying is not longer scary when you know that you have an afterlife. That's why the scam is so easy to sell to people like you. It is not death that you fear, it is facing mortality that you fear more than anything. But that is not all for you, you enjoy being able to make assertions with no evidence, just making it up as you go, that is why you chose christianity.
It is obvious you have never looked death in the face, one feels "most alive" when they are facing death.

I cannot explain how HE did it anymore than how I can explain how a computer enters information that is entered. I can only say if you type in information and hit the ENTER buttom the information is on the screen but can't explain how the computer does it. I can see God's handiwork and say he did it but not be able to explain how.

Actually, I have, several times ... though one of those times doesn't count because I was under the knife for surgery, but the rest I was wide awake for. Thing is, I tempt death all the time, because you do feel most alive at that point, it's called an adrenaline rush, idiot, a very fully understood phenomenon and to many it's like a drug. When the body is full of adrenaline the senses become heightened as a defensive reaction, your energy level shoots through the roof for the very same reason, and your mind works much faster. The drawback is coming down from one, which leaves you completely spent, exhaustion means nothing until you go through several adrenaline rushes, then you know what exhaustion actually is.

Why don't you stop projecting for a change and actually address the main reason why no one with any intelligence takes your nuttery seriously?

Translation: You have no idea what math even is so you're just making it up as you go and you like to use the "god dun it" story.

Sounds like you are advocating we take the Oracles of KittenKodder as the gospel. You seem to be one to call someone an idiot.

I wouldn’t say it was an accident, but it was indeed a great event.

But more importantly, why are you making love in fields? Isn't that what beds are for?
