My good Doctor I know you have spent no time understanding what the bible says about heaven. Because you don’t believe in heaven. But for the sake of understanding your enemy let’s talk about heaven.
Heaven will not be spherical like the earth but symmetrical. It has 12 levels and each level has the land mass equivalent to the United States. The space between each level is one hundred miles. Here on earth the atmosphere is where life can live is about two miles.
In heaven there will be streets and the streets will be transparent. Meaning you can look down to the next level 100 miles away. There are 12 gates meaning we will have the ability to come and go. In addition there will be tree’s and water. Heaven will not be like a nursing home.
I believe there’re new worlds awaiting us after we get through celebrating in heaven. The bible says we as in God’s children, will reign as Kings and Priest. This all equates to having lots of fun my Good Doctor. I would that you could be there because I bet you like to party. And party is what we that are planning to go to heaven will do.
I hesitate to say you are full of shit, but........you're full of shit. There is NO possible way you could know anything you just stated was true, none whatsoever. You can, I suppose, make shit up and post it as factual, of course I can do the same. Like.....Heaven is only full of pink fluffy clouds, upon arrival you are given three items, wings, a harp, and an assigned cloud. There you will spend eternity learned a new song each day and playing it on your harp. I've been told that are 12 billion years of this, you can upgrade to a trumpet, like the ones the angels used to blow down the walls of Jerico.

I Hell, however, you can choose your instrument upon arrival and can play whatever you want. This is where most Jazz musicians end up, you know drugs and all, so I'll be in really cool company. Endless hours of jamming, may now I can learn those tricky changes to Giant Steps.

Imagine my joy when driving through New Jersey this past weekend I saw a FOR SALE sign in front of a Church. No soon had I stopped laughing my ass off then in the next town I saw yet another Church with a FOR SALE sign out front. It does seem as though people just may be getting smarter. One can only hope!!
I've seen ex-churches turned into houses, restaurants, art galleries, etc. Usually only the little ones way out in the country.

Doctor,

When I was still working with chemicals there was this one chemical that caused severe lacrimation. The product was lethal and painful to work with if there were any kind of leaks.

A small leak such as a drip every 3 minutes would cause a agonizing irritation. I remember one time I was fighting to stop a leak and in my frustration I took off my gas mask and slammed it hard onto the concrete.

The mask was damaged beyond repair and my foolish antics caused me to be in a much more precarious position. I said that to say this. Anger can work against ones cause.

Acting irrational with outrageous burst only makes one
lose sight of their intended goal.[tipping hat]

<quoted text>There is NO "tool" to find what dwells in the spirit world. What kind of tool would one use to discover that which is non-existent? Do we need a "tool" to discover if Perter Pan's NeverNever Land exists?
I insist that Land and the substance "Pixie Dust" do not exist, and that to even begin to create a tool to discover them is insanity.
The only things that are real, are things that occupy the naturalistic realm, these are things that science can prove exist, anything else is only something imagined.
Basic Logic.........either A exists of A doesn't exist, there is NO third choice. There is ONLY one methodology in determining if A exists, and that is the scientific method. Once again if you know of a second method I'll love to hear it.
Did I have a dream last night? If I did it is only real to me and not to anyone else. I can tell you about my dream and because you also have had dreams, and know of many other who have had dreams, you may accept my dream as being real. Science can monitor of brain wave activity and tell if we are dreaming or not, so in a way, yes, science can be use to prove dreams exist. The content of those dreams belong ONLY to you, and you could never prove to anyone else that content. "We dream alone just as we die alone"
I've told you in a number of posts what I would accept as evidence, you're just not comprehending. The scientific method is the ONLY methodology that can be used to determine if something is real or not, exists or not.
HA HA HA HA!!!!

Huh. You claim to be very highly educated, several college degrees, an archaeological and history expert, a master computer technician, you even claim to be a college professor and a high school teacher.

You have also claimed; "I believe in God and I believe in Jesus".

So, not that I believe you at all but, you say that you are very highly educated and you believe in "fairy stories".

And really? "Fairy stories"? I think a person that has the self-proclaimed education that you have would know that they are not called "fairy stories", they're called "fairytales".

Smirkmouth has already call every one of them "sluts". I bet when he walks, his a** hole is so drawn up, you couldn't get a tooth pick up it? He thinks his sh*t doesn't stink at all, that he is perfection walking. Except for that little prance caused by his a** sucking on a lemon.
This is the man that says we have no right to judge. He is judging "slut slut slut,"
that is what he thinks women are today, sluts
. Out of his own mouth he is judging all women .
He's a well-known MCP. The reason so many women are "sluts", is because they're just giving men what they want.

Our hypocrite can talk, he's well-known for screwing other men's wives. That breaks his own Commandment.

“You are barely educated”

You were not on the radar screen but now you are being painted. What I’m about to say is not meant to anger you but it probably will. That statement,“You are barely educated,” holds more truth to your own life than anyone here on topix.

If one word could described your life that would be “underachievement.” You have managed to survive but that’s the extent of it. It had to be your way and your time.

As a result you have a meager existence. You realize now that you had much more capability and potential but you were not disciplined enough to shape it into something.

Are you less of a person than anyone here on topix? I’m not saying that at all. You could have went further in life but you chose not too. My friend be who you are in real life and try not to put yourself on a pedestal.

Leave the pedestal for the Olympic medalist.

The same way I know that Peter Pan's NeverNever Land doesn't exists. The same way I know that "pixie dust" doesn't exist. And I know that the naturalistic realm is the only realm because at this point in time, science has failed to detect anything other than this reality. So "For this moment in time" I KNOW that this is the only realm.

The person that jumps in front of a speeding car to save the life of someone they love, even though it may mean death for them is proof that love exists. The parent that would do ANYTHING to save their child is proof of love. Are you a parent? Would you not do anything within your power to save your child? If so, what is the motivating power that makes you act this way.

Like many thing, the evidence can be observed. The person that devotes their lives to healing the sick and saving lives does so because of his/her love of mankind. OBSERVATIONS, prove love. Can you NOT tell the difference between two people who hate each other and two that love each other? Are not the differences observable and obvious?

Yes, I would do anything to save the life of my child. But that doesn't prove love.

I asked you to prove love to me, not give me two dull and drab paragraphs of nothingness.

This guy who calls himself “No Shiite,” would be easy to hate. But he’s this spastic narcissist because of his upbringing. This guy has been beaten and hated his whole life so that’s what he emits when he writes.
It’s sad, really sad that a person like him doesn’t know what it’s like to have family and friends love him. However he does know and understand hate. I just wanted him to know why he has had so much tribulation in his life. Some of it is not his fault. He has been shaped and molded that way and pushed out into society.
As far as you my friend I have not had the chance to read much of what you've posted. This I know that No Shiite hates you and I would say that’s a big plus in your corner. Give me some time and I'll try and see what comes to mind.[tipping hat]
My, my aren't you a seething ball of judgmental hate, speculating about someone you don't know. Christians are creepy.
