People asked Muhammad if to say "There is no diety but God" was not the key to Paradise. He said, "Yes, but it is a key which hath wards; and if ye come with a key of that description, Paradise will be opened to you, otherwise it will not.
Paradise is not for him who reproacheth others."

I have raised and conducted a chicken breeding program for decades. I can show you the progression of a controlled breeding program which has in fact bred out certain traits and bred in other certain traits.
Since that is true and has been demonstrated to be successful in changing the entire appearance so much so that an entirely new breed is named as a result, then reason dictates that over a much greater span of time than just a few decades, even greater "changes" are possible.

Now, can and does, a species morph into a completely different creature and species besides just "breed" characteristic differences within a single species, I can not say. I can only prove what I have witnessed as far as evolution is concerned within a single species ... and it is most certainly "empirical" evidence. Of that you can be sure.

<quoted text>From your link:

" all diseases are spiritually rooted "

So, God/Jesus could cure them all but doesn't.

WOW! What a POS deity !
God can deal with it by removing sin from the earth.

That also means removing everything which is attached to sin.

Which essentially means your own destruction.

That being the case, and that you also want it wrapped up, are you still willing that God stops holding back his justice, that He should give up on you and end it all?

As an atheist what absolute moral standard are you appealing to here?

As atheism cannot supply one, would it be the Christian moral standard?

The one you are denying, but appealing to, to make your argument.

You clearly are not really an atheist, just a pretend one...

What future?

You are an atheist, your life is pointless, if you of course actually believe in atheism.

All you are is a chemical accident, that will be forgotten in a very short time after your death...

With that in mind why are you rejecting the nihilism that your worldview truly leads you too...

Your life is pointless...

No.

But the Jungle Fowl, with its well-described lineage, certainly became a chicken over time.

You are free to interpret Diderot as you wish.

"No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says; he is always convinced that it says what he means." ~George Bernard Shaw

Hell?
Any person capable of the most basic critical thinking should be able to see very easily that such an idea of a physical paradise where there is no suffering is a completely illogical concept.

I would like to know how it is physically possible for a world with no suffering to exist. And I would specifically like to know whether carnivores would continue to eat herbivores, and how both could exist in a world with no suffering.

I am not interested in talking about metaphysics or fantasy-physics or any bald assertions about God.

I am only interested in the logical consistency of these ill logical claims about paradise.

I wonder whether 'the faithful ' have thought critically about the paradise they claim exists, or whether all of their argumentation about physics and metaphysics leads to nowhere but a concept of paradise which is fundamentally illogical and impossible to begin with.

So a bird became a bird?

And this proves that birds were once dinosaurs?

You don't have any warning lights go off when you examine this argument?
