<quoted text>"Thats why LOVE is so different to so many people" I thought you said emotions didn't exist!!! Now you claiming LOVE is different for different people? A little confused are we?
No.

We aren't confused.

You are confused.

Because I never said that emotions don't exist.

I said the scientific evidence doesn't exist.

Hope that helps you, my wee friend

So you just take my word on it?

Just Think challenged it to be "shared and others could verify".

That's what needs to be addressed.

How can you verify that I love my wife?

How can I verify that you love your mom?

<quoted text>If killing during a war was a crime, them millions of us would now be in prison. Society accepts killing in war as necessary to winning, and in some cases necessary in preserving the freedom and way of life of a people.
You come up with the most lame ass analogies I have ever seen. Come on now pops, God was NOT a member of an organization, he was, as YOU believe, the creator of all there is, a kind and loving being, a being with unlimited powers who apparently was acting on his own when he killed millions, including defenseless little babies.
I killed because my Government required that I do so, in many ways I had no choice in the matter, and in reality it was kill or be killed, so any killing that I did was in self-defense.
No one required God to kill, he decided that all by himself. And because I have never killed beyond what was required of me, and for reasons of self-defense, I am in fact more righteous than the God you worship. And I can say with certainly, that I have never killed a baby, or any children. Can your God say that???
I just don’t see why it was ok for you and the United States and it’s not ok for Hebrews to defend themselves in the past. According to you it was a crime if the Hebrews fought and destroyed an enemy. Just like in your case it was kill or be killed. Hypocrisy? Double standard?

You have a belief.
For "myself" it's a fact. God is real. If you don't believe, well I can't help you. You are the captain of your own ship. Sail where you will.

"Jesus never one time criticized a Medical Doctor."

The gospel of Luke in the new testament was written by a Medical Doctor.

Yet despite that fact you seem to think believers are anti-medicine.

The U.S. Government initiated Operation Stargate to explore the feasibility of paranormal activity, especially "remote viewing", as an aid to intelligence gathering and high level spying. After decades of controlled experiments, their conclusion was there is no real world application for any paranormal phenomena.

History has recorded General George Patton ordering his Chaplain to come up with a prayer for good weather. The Third Army did get the good weather requested and went on to victory.

“Chaplain, I am a strong believer in Prayer. There are three ways that men get what they want; by planning, by working, and by Praying.” General Patton, WWII

“Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies and establish Thy justice among men and nations.”

They have not proven it yet so how are they "proving it now"?! You're a fortune teller for science, are ya?
If.......IF........science demonstrates abiogenesis is possible, they're doing it using intelligence and intelligent design.
Sucks, huh?
No intelligent design,all they would be dong is duplicating the conditions of an early Earth that gave rise to abiogenesis. You really shouldn't comment on things you don't fully understand.

I didn't say now, scientist working on the process estimate they will succeed within the next decade. then..Kiss your myth goodbye!!! LOL

If there is NO evidence for the existence of emotions, then love is not possible. How do you KNOW that emotions exist? Everything that exists can be verified by science, so if scientific evidence for emotions doesn't exist, just how do you know that they do?

Holy shit, you don't understand much do you. I have no problems with the Hebrews defending themselves, but God killing millions. Exactly how was God defending himself when he killed all of the Egyptian babies? How was God defending himself when he killed Apox. 20 million humans in a global flood? He killed a lot of Israelis also, 50,700 of them just for looking into the Ark Of The Covenant. Another 24,000 with a plague. How was he defending himself when he killed Lots wife? And finally, just to show you the difference between fighting in a war and killing just for the fun of it, as your God does. Your God sent 2 bears to rip apart 42 youths, they died in fear and agony, their crime for such a gruesome death? they mocked Elisha's bald head!!!! Nice God you worship there skippy.

He is the Amazing Randi.
In the words of Dr. Sheldrake: "The man is a liar". "He is a deceiver by profession and he is a deceiver by nature".
The reason Sheldrake can publicly say this to an audience without fear of being sued for slander?
He has proof - ironclad, documented proof that Randi is a fraud.
...or, excuse me. I mean the Amazing Randi.
That'd be Alfie Rupert Sheldrake?

The "morphic resonance" idiot?

He's a gardener.
