Unless you believe there can be no faith, and vice verse. Belief can produce real results in the real world. Deny it all you want.
Yes, there is a proven placebo effect.

It can also be a source of comfort during difficult times--a crutch, if you will.

Some of us though, those who are critical thinkers and cannot accept anything without evidence, are unable to suspend our disbelief to take advantage of these benefits.

Too bad you try so hard to excuse your own aberrant behavior within a twisted sense of reality. Keep twisting, maybe you'll torque something back into its correct position.
You see no difference between the sentient and non-sentient? Weird.

Here is an article that shoots down your bird assertion:

And another about cooperation among male birds:

If it is normal for man to be that way then how is it abnormal. Religious belief is abnormal, too.

He says he "feels like a woman on the inside", even though he has no womanly *parts*; how's that for "understanding" reality? He can't know how femininity "feels" with no feminine bits and pieces. He spends far too much time in his imaginary world.

Then don't count on the placebo effect ever working for you.

You like blogs, here...
"The current scientific paradigm doesn't recognize this spiritual dimension of life. We're told we're just the activity of carbon and some proteins; we live awhile and die. And the universe? It too has no meaning. It has all been worked out in the equations – no need for a soul. But biocentrism – a new ‘theory of everything'– challenges this traditional, materialistic model of reality."

Something that is not real cannot be induced.

First of all so what, I was responding to another’s post who refereed to you as she, but hey, you are welcome to butt in if that’s what turns you on
No I don’t, why should I hate what I know does not and cannot exist?
How do you "know" it does not?? Show us proof of your claim!!! Cannot exist, lol.. Why is that? Just because you say so?
Science is the fool that allows you to abuse science on the internet, you are quite willing to utilise science for you own needs yet mock it like the good hypocrite you are.
No it is not, evolution has been proven repeatedly and can be observed, is being observed and recorded in several species. However the babble god has NEVER been proven.
Obviously you havent read the majority of my post. I have said it multiple times i do not knock "all" of science. Matter fact i have respect for it, and for those who are part of it..BUTTTTT when it comes to the evolutionary science part of it, thats where i draw the line. Thats the comical side of science at its best!
Show us a distinct transitional fossil, out of all the millions of fossiles in museums, surely the goodness they should be a few thousand of those??? What was it Darwin said about the "lack" of evidence for the transitional fossils he couldnt provide science with, hmmmmm?

The message there is crystal clear.
But since you seem to think that there is NO clear meaning in ANY of the scriptures, just what do you believe in?
You are an IDIOT, RR- and while I haven't told you the following lately, it's as true as when I first told you and it was totally true then, and it's totally true now:
YOU ARE NOT A CHRISTIAN.
No explanation. Just a quote...


Did you know that Israel held witchcraft to be a capital offense? England, America and most of Europe did also.

If you believe in its power, then you take action against it. Lawfully.

Which probably explains why the Romans offed Jesus, they were afraid of His 'magic'...
