Also, I thought the KJV was evil? Now you are using it when it suits your purposes? Or is it only RR who hates it, and you're fine with it?
Your link worked for me.

Here's my day so far, DF.

I got up when the alarm went off.
Put the coffee on and made lunch.
Showered, shaved, and dressed for work.
I was driving out the community gate when I realized the radio was playing the wrong programme.
Checked my 'phone.

It's only Friday.

I don't work on Fridays.

I'll have another mojito, please.

ROFL.

You're obfuscating and throwing in a bunch of unnecessary definitions. Nothing debunks logic.
Now, logically prove your god and stop playing word games. Is that easy enough for you to understand?
Empirical proof will do (logic). Just ask your god to do it. According to your bible, you can do it. Ask and it will happen. Your god promises. I'll wait.
Well, maybe not. I'm usually too busy.
So you think Naturalism is "logic"?? haha.

Yo amigo.

Snakes play a huge part in religion - they are sometimes seen as evil, sometimes worshipped as gods. It is as you say - firstly, they are strange creatures. They have an odd way of moving about, no other animal on earth move the way they do. Also, they can employ chemical warfare against their prey and enemies. The venomous snakes can sometimes give one bite and the victim dies. This certainly did puzzle the ancients. Now, some folks decided it must be evil, some decided it must be a god... And they all wrote stories about it.

You can not prove a thing about the Bible, except that if you accept Jesus you will be saved. Really, the Bible tells you to drink Draino? Now, that is odd because no Bible says a thing about that. The Bible tells you that Christians are healed by Jesus, but that does not mean that Christians are to go out and get sick. Are you really that stupid?
There are doctors who can do brain surgery, so that does not mean that you taking your brain out and not using it is a good idea. Doctors can cure and save lives, but that does not mean that the medical profession wants you to drink Draino to pull them.
I have had God and His angels rescue me from worse. Sorry, the enemy is satan and he comes to kill, steal and destroy, God does not tell us to destroy ourselves and then seek to be rescued. God says that if these things shall happen and you have the FAITH then God will save you. Many Christians do not have the faith.
Exactly what pews do I warm and when my I.Q. drops below 150, then I will come see you. However, your failure to address scientific related singularities, quantum mechanism and the relativity of laws of physics within black holes, is duly noted.
If you can not measure these micro-mechanism things which are within our physical realm, what makes you think your failed cubicle brain can quantify the supernatural and mechanisms outside of this dimension?

I was alarmed to hear as many as 20,000 people are killed a year in Africa by snakes. I am like gee wiz, and we worry about half that figure murdered by guns in the states. Which brings me to the conclusion , Africa needs to ban snakes.

Lol now that I can relate to. These days, I am losing my ability to know what day it is. Last Thursday morning I was sure it was only Tuesday.

Best bit: I have stopped drinking. Must be getting old

Well if you research the number of deaths on South African roads each year, you'd think South Africa needs to ban cars.

Well, Africa has a lot of killers. The three big ones are AIDS, Malaria and war. They rotate for top spot annually.

Snakes, however, do kill their fair share. And the 20,000 people are only medically confirmed. I would expect even double that figure to be the true death toll.

We have some really bad ones. You know about the Black and Green Mamba, but we have some other very deadly ones too: The Cape Cobra, Egyptian Cobra, Gaboon Viper, Puff Adder, Sea Snake, Coral Snake, Zebra Snake, Mozambique Spitting Cobra, Rinkhals, Boomslang, Twig Snake and Forrest Cobra. Deadly beasties.

Problem is that treatment for sbakebite is not easy. Most bites from aforementioned snakes are to be treated using anti-venom (some species, like the boomslang, does not have anti-venom, you have to treat the symptoms). Problem with this is that anti-venom IS STILL HIGHLY TOXIC. If you were bitten by a cobra and use Mamba anti-venom, you still die. If you were bitten by a harmless snake and misidentified it as a deadly one, injecting yourself with any anti-venom woukd cost you your life.

And therein lies the big issue. Most people misidentify snakes. Also, snakes sometimes have roughly the same type of venom, meaning even a doctor can mistake the symptoms.

For example. The Black Mamba is a dark olive green to grey, and very long. It gets confused with a forrest cobra (also dark colour, also long) very easily. It also gets confused withthe harmless Mole Snake (2m long, blck). Then the Zebra Snake can look like a Rinkhals. The harmless bush snake can be misidentified as a boomslang. The Boomslang can be misidentified as green Mamba. Then, the Zebra Snake's toxin has much the same effect as The Puff Adder's. The Rinkhals with a cobra. And so the list goes on and on.

Here is a tip. When a snake bites you here or in Australia, KILL IT. Take it with you to hospital and have it correctly identified.

Like I said. If you were bitten by snake you do not know, kill it, take it to hospital with you. Even you, living in SA, do you know how to tell the difference between a juvenile Black Mamba and your average Brown House Snake? Can you honestly tell the difference between the Tree Snake and the Boomslang?

Even me, that has lots of experience with them, I would rather take the snake along than stand a chance to misidentify it
