All you really had to do was pay attention in the first place.
Instead, you just accepted Dave's numbers and ran with 'em.
It was a mistake on Dave's part, nothing more... but, not paying attention is a habit you need to try to kick.
Yah.

And I'd thought I was being fairly clear.

i know, huh?!
the proof reveals that the earth is 10,000 years old or less, but the wishful thinking of antichrist's and so-called scientist's have the faith to believe that it's innumerable
There is no "proof" that the Earth is 10,000 years old or less. There is not even any evidence to suggest such a thing.
All evidence suggests otherwise.

Why, if your "faith" in this religion is so strong, do you find it necessary to boast lies in order to try to justify your weird beliefs?
That shows a lack of faith.

"Fairly clear" doesn't work with RR.

Either does being "crystal clear".

<quoted text>Of course he has nothing. And you're right- admitting one's belief is based on faith and not on fact is what makes sense.
No- RR has no proof of the existence of any god and either does anyone else, but this ties into many-RR included- either not knowing or losing sight of what is belief/opinion and what is truth/fact.
And in that corner RRÂ has so neatly painted himself into, his standard retort has become: Prove you have hands.
Amazing- this could almost be sitcom material!
So when did you almost become a atheist RR when you was 4, because it says you have been a Christian since you was 5, heck I can't even remember when I was 5, and this is coming from, a person who believes in my higher power "GOD" Point is be yourself if people don't like you for that then move on, but don't lie to make friends!! Peace and I hope you have a good night!

So god is just in one country then? He isn't on my money, nor is he inscribed on the buildings...

your god is limited to economics, architecture and by geography.

What does he actually do? Where is he hiding?

It's a simple matter to prove you have hands in this medium to a reasonable person, however the 'religious' will attach an impossible standard to that proof while insisting that the standard of proof be infinitestimally small when applied to their particular 'god'.
"ahhh you may perceive your hands to be there but how do you actually know that your brain isn't simply 'inserting' hands instead of a form of telekenesis"
as opposed to:
"of course theres a god, look at a tree/flower/banana, I had a cold once and I prayed and recovered...checkmate"
Yep.

Redneck is the fog and the truth is the grapes.

The fox decides he'd like some grapes which he sees on a vine runing up a tall tree. He jumps and flips and scratches at the the tree, finally he is exhausted.

Unable to reach the grapes he sits down and convinces himself that he never wanted the grapes in the first place...in fact he doesn't even like grapes...and those who can reach the grapes are very bad.

Grapes are evil and have always been evil and no good can come of them, so he spends his life trying to erradicate grapes, all while attempting to keep buried the memories of the delicious taste of grapes.

This could of course apply to any of the 'religious'.

While where at it i believe in Vampires, werewolves, witches, ghost, but I believe in my higher power the most (GOD) Do you believe in electric?

<quoted text>Okay.....however:
"The research indicates that adults who drink in moderation are not in danger of losing brain cells.
THE BOTTOM LINE Alcohol may not kill brain cells per se, but it can impair brain function, among other things."
http://www.nytimes.com/2004/11/23/health/23re...
So per the above, drinking *in moderation* is not an issue and per the above alcohol does not "kill" brain cells; still, heavy drinking does cause damage to brain function.
And for those who are alcoholics:
"BRAIN DAMAGE FROM OTHER CAUSES
People who have been drinking large amounts of alcohol for long periods of time run the risk of developing serious and persistent changes in the brain.
Damage may be a result of the direct effects of alcohol on the brain or may result indirectly, from a poor general health status or from severe liver disease.
For example, thiamine deficiency is a common occurrence in people with alcoholism and results from poor overall nutrition.
Thiamine, also known as vitamin B1, is an essential nutrient required by all tissues, including the brain."
http://pubs.niaaa.nih.gov/publications/aa63/a...
And about the above, it is not as uncommon as many think for those who are truly alcoholics to go days and days without eating and to develop malnutrition which results in not taking in enough thiamine as per the above.
And many who are alcoholics never stop drinking, thereby not allowing for any time for the brain to recover from damage caused.
Yeah... I wasn't saying that drinking wasn't harmful or anything, I was just correcting the misconception that any brain cells you destroy are gone for good. Not trying to bicker, just sharing the fact that our brains are a lot more resilient than many people think.

I don't see it happening but if someone was to prove there is a God, how, if any way, would that change you? You must want proof for a reason.
People have been trying to find "proof" or evidence of gods for thousands and thousands of years. As time has gone along and our methods of research and instrumentation have improved so dramatically, there is less and less reason to believe that a god or gods exist. In turn, these beliefs in a god or gods have become more and more questionable and unreasonable in light of our better understanding of the world and universe around us. At one time, magic seemed a perfectly reasonable way to explain the world, but we have grown to learn and understand that magic is not real, nor is it necessary to explain the world and universe around us.

It can be compared to a young child and Santa Claus. When the child is completely ignorant of how those presents are getting under the Christmas tree, Santa Claus seems a perfectly viable reason to explain it and thus makes belief in Santa Claus seem reasonable. As the child grows up and learns that the parents are the ones who stock the presents, belief in Santa Claus becomes more questionable and unreasonable. The child eventually loses their belief in this magical being as there simply becomes no reason to believe in such an irrational and unreasonable thing.

Because people have been searching for evidence of these great invisible, magical beings (gods) for thousands of years and have found nothing, instead only finding out those beliefs to be more and more unreasonable, I do not think that anyone here is worried about any mystical "proof" suddenly coming about. Your question is similar to asking "if someone was to prove there is a Santa, how, if any way, would that change you?" The question is a bit silly to begin with.
Asking theists to "prove there is a god" is not so much about "wanting proof," but rather a case where we know that religious people will not be able to provide any proof (or evidence), but it is funny to watch them try.

How would you show me? Is your ability to witness so incredibly transcendent that you literally cannot describe it in words? In what way would an in person meeting be different than a text conversation? What about a video? If you imagine you can convert people in person, would a video work just as well?

In short, you're being obtuse because you can't prove anything, so you distract from that fact by claiming that the only thing stopping you is topix.

So your "it doesn't matter, I'm a christian" statement is nonsensical. Maybe to you it makes sense, but not to many other "christians."
