Never fault the students for the errors of their teachers.
Which is why we blame the church's clergy (teachers) and its dogma (curriculum), not the rank and file believer. The church is the primary problem.

What is just about faith? Faith is not a virtue. You can have faith in anything. Or its opposite.
Rom 1.17, The just shall live by faith.
Rom 5.1, Having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

Love is a virtue !

That was a pretty good joke, too.
The Palin joke is the one that miffed Buck Crick for over a year. You remember that one, don't you?
Of course, he was also seeing double for months after one of us called the story of the virgin from Nazareth a rape report.
What would be Buck's take on this bunch?

Mere people are the only ones talking about a GOD, a GOD doesn't speak.

Higher hope?...most professing christians know everything, they don't hope.

Yes, I agree on the last part definitely, but we all are in the dark on the first part, though what little evidence exists kind of leans a bit the way of the non-believers.
Hello, thanks for the reply.

Humans instinctively sense there is something else, unfortunately those who scramble to find value in themselves want to define the something else for others.

Maybe they'll have faith they can fly and jump off a bridge. Oh wait, then faith isn't all that good?
No, it's not. It's bad. How can faith be good? It's a guess.

Faith can be in anything, however absurd. Of course you can have faith in jumping off of cliffs. I'm sure that people jumped into volcanoes on faith. If there were a religion recommending either, the faithful would be praised, and would jump.

Science confirm that a source of energy holds the universe in place.
Sorry, Nick, but that is meaningless. I already know that you cannot show me anything that supports that claim. What you might find is an account of dark energy accelerating the universe's expansion. And there is evidence that the universe may be rotating. These would be the only known motions of the universe, not motion within a larger space.

There is known space in which the universe moves, although the multiverse, if it exists, might be such a thing. If such a place for our universe to move exists, we have no knowledge of it, nor even what it means to say that the universe does or does not move in it, if it anchored, or how.

When you're dealing with evidence based thinkers, you need to provide more that opinions and wild, unsupported claims.

Wrong.

Potential energy is not at work. Work requires energy transfer, as when an object is moved through a gravitational or electric field.
Nick wrote:

Faith is guessing. You're just guessing now, and claiming that your guesses are fact. We need less of that kind of thinking. It has no value.

Science can't explain how and why the universe came about from nothing since Science proves something created can't come from nothing.
Science does no such thing. What we know about the behavior of small pieces of the universe does not necessarily apply at the largest scales. From Wiki:

"The fallacy of composition arises when one infers that something is true of the whole from the fact that it is true of some part of the whole (or even of every proper part). For example: "This fragment of metal cannot be fractured with a hammer, therefore the machine of which it is a part cannot be fractured with a hammer." This is clearly fallacious, because many machines can be broken-apart, without any of those parts being fracturable."

Hang around and we'll teach you how to think usefully. No progress has ever been made by guessing and calling it fact. Au contraire: that method has held man back.

Your bible, for example, has revealed nothing useful about the universe. It's full of bad guesses, such as the one about a flat earth with edges immovably mounted on pillars, or a dome over the sky separating waters above it from waters below. That's all nonsense.

All useful knowledge about reality was gleaned from observation of it using reason.

The bibles confirms you can not trust your feeling! They can let you down!
Feelings can be misleading, such as the intuition that a father figure watches over us and protects us from harm. But how does your bible prove that?

How does the bible prove anything nontrivial? Books can't prove anything about the world apart from the fact that it contains books.
Nick wrote:
Luke confirms Jesus as the Saviour of the whole world. That is the Facts!
The only fact confirmed by the Gospel of Luke is that something called the Gospel of Luke exists. That's it. It could contain anything or its opposite, and it would still be the Gospel of Luke, and it would still prove nothing.

You should probably abandon the use of words like fact, proof, knowledge, truth, evidence and reason. What you have is faith in guesses, nothing more. It produces nothing useful unless you consider false hope useful, and I for one don't.

The Romans also later woke up and realised the diety of Jesus and turned to Jesus as their God. I find that amazing !!!!!!!!!
Not really. It was about three centuries later, and it was due to the pragmatic political decision of an emperor.

Sorry too, So far what you have shared is also meaningless.

In the OT 3000 years ago the bible mentions that space is stretched like a curtain. It is only now through science can we confirm this as fact !

At that time no-one could comprehend or prove it.

Nonsense. We have seen the injustice of faith manifest in several ways here in this thread. I have felt it.

Justice requires character. It means doing what is right according to a program of egalitarianism and empathy. It often requires courage. I don't see any of that coming from the faithful here.

I see cliquishness and cowardice. I see verbal sniping. I see scapegoating gays and making their lives more difficult and dangerous.

Where is the justice in denying gay couples equal protection under the law? Where is the justice in the Roman Catholic Church? There will be none until secular authorities demand it.

Where is the justice in blaming me for Adam's sins? Where is the justice in requiring torturing somebody on the cross? Where is the justice in eternal torment for a petty charge? Where is the justice in forgiveness on demand, or salvation without making amends?

You are not justified by faith. You merely forgive yourselves. You may feel better about yourself for it, but you are not justified in the eyes of the rest of us.

I am astounded at how so many people are so ignorant about their own religion and it's teachings...and of it's history...or why and how these things even came about.
.. many believers on this thread speak a language we cannot understand ..

.. if you make any claim to truth, knowledge or wonderment, expect anathema. Nobody is allowed to question faith and dissenting voices are ridiculed in an attempt to silence ..

.. clerics have stifled their curiosity and now they follow in their footsteps ..

I think Buck would side with them. He seems to prefer faith, even if he doesn't agree with what they have faith in.

The Christians would not side with him, however. They would likely sit idly by watching him insult skeptics, and enjoy it.

But if we were to leave the thread, they would savage him and his Wispy Miasma theology.

What do you think?

Because some religious people here get offended at every single question, doubt, and bit of logic.
