Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

OK sock, let's see your faith turn water into wine. If you don't have enough faith to do that; maybe you should be doing something else with your time.
jesus claimed that anything you ask for, will be granted, if it glorifies the father, yet no christian is willing to put their faith out there. Why is that?

You wouldn't accept my proof as evidence so no point in putting it here, but if you do know me then you will know I have written about many experiences that I have had in my lifetime
Exactly. Personal experience. Subjective, not objective.

If you are a fan of Collins, then why do you have problems with evolution?

<quoted text>
I pray to the GOD of Abraham; HE that is I AM.
I have been researching GOD as long as I can remember, however, you may note that my avatar name is Serah? Serah is the daughter of Asher, 8th son of Jacob, and I was seeking her for many years and finally found her again (she is mentioned a few times in the Bible) in the Jewish Talmud.
Serah has strong belief in Prayer, and strong Faith in particular, and is still - here, as a copy and paste troll, I will do exactly that...
***Serah bat Asher was a granddaughter of the biblical patriarch Jacob (Genesis 46:17). A cave and synagogue connected with her in central Iran, 30 kilometers (18.5 miles) west of Isfahan, near a village called P&#299;r Bakr&#257;n in the area of Linj&#257;n, has become one of the holiest places of Iranian Jewry and an important pilgrimage destination.
Legend explains how Serah ended up so far from the land of her forefathers and why this place is so holy for Jews.
http://www.paulyonline.brill.nl/entries/encyc... ***
***Serah did indeed "span the generations" from biblical times until today. The ancient rabbis went so far as to boldly claim that Serah never died. She does indeed live on in the many legends that generations of Jews have told about her. The separate strands of tradition about this immortal lady of legend still beckon to be retold and reunited. This "wise woman," from among the first generations of our people, is again becoming a living presence among us as we recount her story in our day. For Jews of today, Serah bat Asher serves as a traditional model for our contemporary women leaders, imbued with worldly wisdom, Torah learning, and spiritual power.
http://huc.edu/faculty/faculty/pubs/pbregman.... ***
It is easy to understand why I lost Serah; being that she is Jewish, but I was very happy to make her acquaintance again and can understand why I was so very drawn to her.
Take that as you will; we each have challenges in life and I am very happy following my Spiritual pathway, it has led me to some amazing moments. I hope that you too, have some of those spine chilling, goose bump feelings that come just from being in the right spot at the right time.... deja vu if you will :)
2. How much reseach did you do to select your god?
3. Why do you think you are right?

The whole driving force behind existence is way too competitive and the history of Earths organisms and evolutionary path
of predation and right down to the nature of sexual reproduction
screams there was nothing intelligent in the design , or that if there were a creator it was one who relished in the suffering of the creation. I think this so much that if there truly were a creator , it is one of such twisted and awful nature that you could only call this thing a monster.
The struggling history of all living creatures and the devastation's of cosmic , volcanic and atmospheric origin
show the plight of all animal life on Earth to be unguided unaided and entirely resting in a uncertain gamble and resting in the throw of the dice.
For this reason I cannot accept there could be an intelligent designer , and if there was it was what creationists would call evil, and must have met it's own demise. But for all intents and purpose a thing of such terrible nature could not be hidden so well, and indeed would manifest itself within it's creation and all would know the terrible nature and wrath of the monster.
But it simply isn't there to be found , therefore it simply cannot exist.
If there was an intelligent designer why are there so many mistakes? Why would there even be evolution as everything would be perfectly designed for their environment and there would be no need for change.

Richard Hawkings fame is only good to those who believe him, and that's not many. He is famous to the devil for sure. as he is considered by the devil as a true follower whose path we know will eventuslly lead to eternal damnation, such a waste.

Hey dude.

I'm not sure if I have already white-sheeted you.

Sometimes it's hard to remember.

Just in case, let me make sure.

Catcher white sheet is lowered on you.

You no longer exist.

You can quote me on that.
Have you ever picked up a bible and truly taken the time and studied it like you did in school so you could get an A+ on your test paper. I urge you to pick up the bible and try as you and I know you never have Try rhe King Jame or the New King James or the American Standard or new American Standard or my favorite which is the New Living Translation because of the ease it is to read and absorb the information, give it a try as we are talking about saving your soul from eternal separation from God.

I have no problem with evolution, however I do have a problem believing we are the ancestors of fish or bacteria or alien organisms...

I have no doubts that we are miracles and too miraculous to be the result of some doubtful beginning. But it is not only that, it is the things that have happened also in my life that support and indeed deepen my Faith. The older I get, the more firmly I believe!

Yeah Richard Hawking is a cryptozoologist who is searching for flying spaghetti monsters, Invisible unicorns , God and a devilishly attractive female to breed with.

<quoted text>I'd like to know how much time they think it took for a little or big old fishy to grow eyelashes, eyebrows & ears. Did they do this under water? Did their lungs develop under water - requiring them to breathe air and not suck water through their gills or did they clumsily thrash around on land until they grew legs and arms? Were they hairy eyelashing eyebrowing fishies waiting patiently for their legs to grow so they could walk? How long do they think it took for this hairy fish to walk? What did they eat in the meantime? Have they thought about anything logical??
Makes you wonder why your deity would throw a foreskin into the mix and then have its "chosen people" whack it off.

Eh?

Crazy myths.
