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.

Forrest Gump,
“It all started with a RNA pool party, there was this band and they were playing hard rock music.”
Things got out of hand and the cops came and raided the place.
The RNA band just kinda went everywhere.
From there, sh*^ happened.
The "Forest Gump" alternative to science, somehow I figured you were smarter than that, sorry to be so wrong!!!

I believe you’re partially paralyzed.
God can heal the brokenness of your spirit.
The bitterness you hold can be removed.
Disengage from your hate and ask God to forgive you of all your sins. Then the healing can begin my friend.
Maybe he's like I am, I have NO SIN. Can't "heal" something that doesn't need healing now can you!!!

Not long ago I went to a local restaurant here in town. I stepped out of the vehicle and heard the sound of hundreds of children playing at recess at the adjacent public school. It took me back briefly of the times I played at school recess.
It is one of the sweetest sounds one can ever hear. The sound of children playing. It was a joy to hear hundreds of children playing tag, ball and games of every sort. My good friend there’s a playground in heaven unlike anything here on this earth. There’s no more dying or pain and suffering.
Matthew 19:14
King James Version (KJV)
14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. Only great joy for all who go there.
[tipping hat]
Funny when you go Southern Africa you don't hear children laughing and playing, you hear the sounds of terror and they wail in pain, unbelievable pain caused by starvation and dehydration. You'll hear a similar sound coming from the slums in Rio.

"There's no more dying or pain and suffering" Further evidence for the mindset of the death cultist.

There is a rather HUGE difference between the "applied" and "directed" actions of science and "random" actions. The "applied" and "directed" are forces "deliberately" channelled in a particular and "chosen" direction. There is something quantum mechanical about it.
VERY, VERY HUGE difference.
Sorry, I really try and avoid batshit crazy people!!!

Thank you for sharing. There just aren't enough ass wiping posts.
Ass-wiping posts?

There's one outside the restroom at Dude's Muffler Shop.

I don't use it. Splinters, you know.

You are supporting the opposite.
What you are saying is that science, at any particular moment, is probably wrong about a lot of things.
Thanks Blue Bayou. That's what I thought.
You Coprophagous fop.
You'd still be in a cave picking your ass and banging two bones together asking the Thunder God to bring more game if it weren't for science.

You'd better hope medical science is NOT wrong when you check in after that massive heart attack!!!

Is that supposed to be a profound intellectual observation?

Make a snowman. You just created something you had laying about the place. You are all powerful to this snowman.

Reach in and make a little heart for it,

Weave a 3D web. Cut and tie a knot in the middle of it,

Easy enough to destroy then and start over again. Otherwise you have a causality concern.

Your concept of an all powerful God is of a limited sort.

I have not see the rest of this conversation, but yes I spent over 9 weeks in Barbados early this year, and am booked to go back end of January for another stay there. I have not rented any vehicles there, and I drove only once, the first year I was there in my landlady's Mini.
You drove into your landlady's mini?

How was it?

I paid rent one month by hanging out for my landlady.

I don't mean hanging out "with"; hanging out "for".

No example of A is needed, you dope.
It doesn't matter what A or B is.
Universal logic requires A exist for B to come from it.
And I never heard of Milo Loosedick.
But if you want his ass whooped, bring him by.
Fighter for the Boston Bruins, yeah, when they are down in your neck of the woods I'll bring him by. Call him a sissy, and I'll step back.

Don't know why logic fails you so. That something CANNOT come from nothing is an argument from ignorance, period. In order to make that claim you are REQUIRED to have examples of BOTH. We have plenty of examples of SOMETHING, but have NO examples of NOTHING, no comparison can be made, so to claim that it is totally impossible for SOMETHING to come from NOTHING, can't be proven.

Since you think science deals with only the naturalistic realm, they should steer clear of dreams, emotions, sleep, yawning, gravity, why people are 90% right-handed and of course, purring cats.
All of the things you mentioned manifest themselves in the naturalistic realm, and can be examined by science. Next batter!!!

So. How long has it been since we have been out of caves asking the Thunder God for more game?

So. How long have we had science co-existing with religion since then?

As a matter of fact you will find religion was the initiator of science.

Your head would make a great addition to your band. Just shake it in time.

You are a muck-swilling idiot.

We don't need examples of nothing.

If there is no nothing, then something cannot come from it, so something can't come from nothing.

If there is a nothing, something cannot come from it, so something can't come from nothing.

With any scenario, something can't come from nothing.

So something can't come from nothing.
