What also would have made me believe is an accurate account of the creation of the universe, world and mankind. I am nkt saying Genesis one should have been the big bang theory, followed by abiogenesis and evolution. Instead, a much simpler version, but still in line. Also, no religion can claim this.
Lastly, milllions of people believes in your god, yes. But just as many believe in Allah. Does this mean Allah can also be a true deity? But... What about the people NOT believing in your deity? 5 billion people on this planet does not believe in Jesus. Does majority rule count against it?
Now, something to bake your noodle. What about ancient times? Predating Christianity? When people worshipped Zeus? Was he the true deity when people were worshipping him? How about Odin? Vishnu? Ra? El?
Majority rule is a very risky argument. The not popular is not always right. To assume that is kind of like counting 1000 VW hatchbacks for every Lamborghini you see on the road. Because VW Golf is a mlre popular buy, is it a more desirable car?
More affordable, which makes more desirable, and thus popular. But more importantly, less financial risk and therefore more utilitarian. Lambos started out as tractors, but you don't want to drive one off the pavement now. Also less inclination of the owner to take up two spaces in a crowded parking garage, thereby less inclination of others to key it.

Lambos appeal to elitists.

If life's road is kind of rough and you need a friend, Jesus is much cheaper and utilitarian than a psychiatrist, drugs, a bar, or a Lamborghini, neither of which ever fixes the problem. A Jesus has a higher customer satisfaction rating.

I may agree with you but this doesn't say it's ok for me to try to fill giant gaping holes up with their bodies women children and all.
I think that most on the far right are self-righteous.

Case in point: My own, dear people.

White South Africans implemented Apartheid. Truth be told, it was not evil to begin with, it was not meant to be evil. But they certainly abused their power and for many years, they grossly violated the rights of everyone with a darker skin.

Today, many of my own dear people will tell you how much better things were during Apartheid, how schools would receive books and crime was low. How they are "god's people" and all kinds off horse shite that just makes me sick.

Sure, the Jews have skeletons in their closet. But to think as a group they are any worse than my people... Methinks not.

You of course would know that you in the USA also have some bad skeletons in the closet, since giving smallpox blankets to the Native Americans. And how many self-righteous assholes have you got?

Ah and the Brits, the Brits. Where to start? Only nation I know of to commit a genocide and not even acknowledge it.

Every culture has made its own mistakes andat some point, violated someone's rights. Sometimes, it gets as bad as the Holocaust, Rape of Nanking, Russian Attrocities, etc. But a pattern that I have noticed, is that those that are on the (often extreme) right, are the those who tend to make light of human rights violations. I see that here, with those loons saying hlw great everything was during Apartheid. You can probably see the same thing with Bible-belters often being the biggest racistsand bigots.

Who really has an accurate account of the creation of mankind, the world, the universe? Genesis may not, but science doesn't either. Certainly the Big Bang followed by abiogenesis doesn't. When has science ever proven that life spontaneously arises from non-living matter? It hasn't, hence that theory is just as absurd as the non-believer in God believes the Genesis account might be. Science gives us all these theories and insist that we are relatives to the apes, yet it cannot tell us where the apes came from. Science insists that man evolved from walking on all fours to the erect form of intelligent man we have today..What I find amazing is that if you do a timeline of biblical events, you'll find that Adam and Eve appeared at the same time science tells us cro-magnon man appeared. It's quite the mystery to me that men of ancient times could leave written evidence of the beginning of mankind that matches up perfectly with the timeline of the erect man that the scientific world , with all it's gadgets and technology, has given us. I don't have a clue what the truth is...but I know what I believe and I have no more of a problem believing it than I have believing what science gives me.

To assume that science is always right, because that's what people usually do, is to deny yourself the knowledge that there simply is more out there. Popular belief isn't why I believe...although I am sure that is the case for many. For quite some time, I didn't believe at all, but on my journey to disprove God, I found life.:)

Anyways, Good On You for making the right decision.
Did your mother or father that chose to love a black [descendant of African-American slave] live inb the Ghetto??
Most of the white participants have no choice but to live a life of welfare and section-8 for what they have done.
A lot of them [Caucasian black breeders] die an early death due to complications of drinking to much jungle juice and using drugs
That must be why Obama hates whites so much, that horrible life at Harvard and being raised by generous white grandparents...
Yep, that must be where his ghetto hatred of whitey comes from, not from the black kin who abandoned him.

That's sarcasm, tardwad.

<quoted text>The universe cannot reach absolute zero.
Did I say it could? Ground state isn't an absolute, if it was it would have zero potential. The ground state is simply the lowest possible vibrational energy state for any system or energy.
ZPE is the condition that existed in the singularity before t=0
So in reality, our reality the ground state, is a false ground state.
The true ground state is impossible, which is likely what you confused me as saying. Existence and absolute zero is impossible.

You are a wise beyond your years youngster, The USA is a monster with a sugar coating. The people don't mean it to be, but our species is without a doubt.

We humans want and try to do better, if there is any faith in the world. This is where it should be placed. In our eventual actually becoming better for all of us, from Aborigine to Icelander alike.

Affordibility does not increase desirability. I don't know one man on this planet who would cite his favourite car as a VW Golf. It is cheaper for me to spend a vacation at home, rather than visit Mauritius. That does not make a vacation at my house any more desirable than a vacation at Mauritius.

Also, I am not so sure about the higher success rate of accepting Jesus. What I do see is many confused people given false hope. I see people relapsing in their old ways, and then hating themselves because their 'sin' made Jesus not help them
