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.

Speaking as a person who actually works on an ambulance, CPR itself really doesn't do much. The key is early defibrillation, and even then survival outside a hospital is something like 7%.
If you're referring to 1 Kings 17, it doesn't really say he did CPR< he just laid on top of the boy.
Thank you for your response. I was referring to when God breathed the breath of life into Adam. That was long before CPR was recognized as a life saving method.

I do realize it has a low success rate, however it has saved some lives. Myself, I was a emergency responder for 32 years. Fire Fighting, Haz Mat, and Incident Commander and a short stint as a Police dispatcher.

Your profession is the most noble. I admire medics and always have with the deepest respect.[Tipping Hat]

Nope, you touches a moon rock and danced around the issue! Good boy! Good little WAG1!
What do you get out of this forum if you constantly dance around the tough issues?
Yeah, I know! That's just what trolls do, but what do you get out of it?
I touched a piece of the moon. I tried to get some of that moon rock under my fingernail but NASA was ahead of the curve. That rock was as hard as diamond, lol.

Are you humiliating yourself on the passage in 2 kings where your prophet molests a child? That is not how CPR is done, not even close.
The bible is a collection of myths.

Actually I wasn’t even considering the 2 Kings passage but the one in Genesis.

Genesis 2:7
King James Version (KJV)

7. And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Colorado pot.
My hot tub room is like a greenhouse. In a backyard with a privacy fence all around. Toilet, shower, sink, microwave. Heated. Nice big deck 2 or 3 could sleep on. Could even put a swing up in there. Room for a few plants. Could be a little marijuana jungle with pool and playground.
Gee, if I was only younger.
Sigh....

ACLS certified for twenty three years. I've performed open heart massage. Is there something I can help you with?
<quoted text>
How many twists and turns of interpretation does one have to make to get that passage to fit into what you want it to? Perhaps you could post it so we could see what it actually says?
Well I certainly never did open heart massage but have done CPR many times and once to a baby. Your partner in crime claims the bible is all myth. Well thousands of years before CPR which includes mouth to mouth and mouth to nose resuscitation.

We find an example of a life being started by mouth to nose resuscitation which is a recognized method in the medical rescue community.

Genesis 2:7
King James Version (KJV)

You are confused. Do you want to learn and get less confused or do you want to wallow in, "goddidit, so there is no reason to look further."?
No one is saying that you have to believe in it; that would be the religious way. You should study the idea. Do a little digging on your own.
Word of caution: Stay way from religious sites made by people who have doctorates in divinity or philosophy, or slightly better, only a high school education!
You would have to believe in abiogenesis, theres no evidence, only lies massive extrapolations.

Well, hell that list could even include nice jet boats, and expensive cars, yachts, antiques, money, gold, silver, diamonds or even one’s self.

Thank you for bringing that up.:)

I think a spiritual breath and cpr are two different things. That's that whole twisting and turning of interpretation I was talking about.

I have actually intubated 1 baby and 1 neonate. But open heart massage was probably the coolest thing I have ever gotten to do in the hospital.

Dave confessed he uses his hot tub as a toilet. Go ahead and sit by the George Burns look alike but remember those are not cigars floating by you.
