Sorry, not only is it easy to imagine and comprehend, it is child's-play. All you have to do is repeat 'its more than that' and 'anything is possible'. But, if you pick at it past the surface, it falls apart and we see no actual explanations at all--just myth making and superstition.

I am not denying the power of God. I am denying there is any evidence for the existence of God at all.

You can't mention a single hole that we can't pick apart. And YOU don't even know what Christian means.

We know this because you're a liar for Jesus,

Remember, you do NOT know more about God than anyone else does. You're just another ego-driven fundie who THINKS he knows everything before you even bothered to get an education.(shrug)

Big whoop. The Bible ain't true cuz the Bible sez so.

Can't you read what the heck we're saying? Because you ARE running away from it all.

No, you say the evidence for the truth of the scriptures is not real, and I have pointed out that it is right there in the assertion that all things in nature follow circuits or what we may call cycles.

Oh, there is plenty of evidence that nature works the way the Bible has always said it does, the problem is that your side will never admit it.

Yes, the global science conspiracy is hiding the truth from everyone by basing their findings on the best evidence and sound conclusions. It just plain sucks for people who want things to be the way they believe they should be because of those pesky facts.

By the way, before you say it, I am not an atheist. Another fundie belief shattered.

the bible is nearly worthless to discover anything IRL, but is a tool in understanding human emotion. It does have value as to how humans can be taught without the modern tools of science to understand . In short it is a primitive way of teaching, better used on people before 1000 ad, after that date , only ignorance can substantiate it's use as a learning and social skill device.

If we can eventually teach the lower primates skills, the bible would be an excellent tool in
teaching monkeys and baboons as well as gorillas how to form a moral society based on the primitive human texts at discovering the world at large. but for us humans it has become..quite obsolete, outdated and worthless as a tool for learning.

.....From live science.com

The 9 biggest unsolved mysteries of physics,...by Natale Wolchover

#7....Why is there an arrow of time?
.... Time moves forward because of a property of the universe called entropy , roughly defined as the level of disorder , only increases, and so there is no way to reverse a rise in entropy after it has occurred. The fact that entropy increases is a matter of logic, there are more disordered arrangements of particles than there are ordered arrangements , and so as things change , they tend to fall into disarray. But the underlying question here is , why was entropy so low in the past? Put differently why was the universe so ordered at its beginning , when a huge amount of energy was crammed together in a small amount of space?..

Now this is a mystery to science , but I've no doubt they've never consulted the geniuses here on this thread.

I especially like the part ,...as things change ,they tend to fall into disarray.

It is your side that has made a bunch of ignorant monkeys out of people. The basics of how things really work in nature have not been taught to our children. It is surprising to me how many people get lost in forest because they did not know which way the sun rises and sets. If they knew when the sun is setting over their left shoulder or if it is rising over their right shoulder they are always looking north, and if it is rising on your left shoulder you are facing south, they could find their way without a compass. Due east is the direction the sun comes up and it sets in the west and if you pay attention to how you go into the woods you can go back out the way you went in. It would be helpful.to know these simple truths instead of wondering around lost.

Yet YOU would teach our children:

~ The Universe was created in ONE WEEK
~ about 6000 years ago
~ the planet had a massive, world-wide flood 4500 years ago
~ which killed ALL LIFE ON EARTH (except for that on a boat)
~ the existence of giants, unicorns, talking snakes (serpents), and donkeys
~ the sun and moon stopped in the middle of the sky for a full day

...and more nonsense.

ALL of which is in your Bible.

My side? Exactly what are you proposing my side is?
If you mean science, where would you be without it? I'm also a sportsman and survivalist and in my element in the woods or on the water. Though I'm not a prepper, I mean I was a Boy Scout and consider myself a capable Ranger. So this monkey business is far fetched by some flung dung. Science and technology have brought you from looking at the sun and stars to get where you want , to tom toms and GPS, but the Ranger doesn't have to have them :)
