Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Thank you for your response. I was referring to when God breathed the breath of life into Adam. That was long before CPR was recognized as a life saving method.
I do realize it has a low success rate, however it has saved some lives. Myself, I was a emergency responder for 32 years. Fire Fighting, Haz Mat, and Incident Commander and a short stint as a Police dispatcher.

Eagle, time to say your prayers and go to sleep.

Are you humiliating yourself on the passage in 2 kings where your prophet molests a child? That is not how CPR is done, not even close.
The bible is a collection of myths.
<quoted text>
Actually I wasnít even considering the 2 Kings passage but the one in Genesis.

Genesis 2:7
King James Version (KJV)

7. And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Colorado pot.
My hot tub room is like a greenhouse. In a backyard with a privacy fence all around. Toilet, shower, sink, microwave. Heated. Nice big deck 2 or 3 could sleep on. Could even put a swing up in there. Room for a few plants. Could be a little marijuana jungle with pool and playground.
Gee, if I was only younger.
Sigh....

ACLS certified for twenty three years. I've performed open heart massage. Is there something I can help you with?
<quoted text>
How many twists and turns of interpretation does one have to make to get that passage to fit into what you want it to? Perhaps you could post it so we could see what it actually says?
Well I certainly never did open heart massage but have done CPR many times and once to a baby. Your partner in crime claims the bible is all myth. Well thousands of years before CPR which includes mouth to mouth and mouth to nose resuscitation.

We find an example of a life being started by mouth to nose resuscitation which is a recognized method in the medical rescue community.

Genesis 2:7
King James Version (KJV)

7. "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul."

You are confused. Do you want to learn and get less confused or do you want to wallow in, "goddidit, so there is no reason to look further."?
No one is saying that you have to believe in it; that would be the religious way. You should study the idea. Do a little digging on your own.
Word of caution: Stay way from religious sites made by people who have doctorates in divinity or philosophy, or slightly better, only a high school education!
You would have to believe in abiogenesis, theres no evidence, only lies massive extrapolations.

How about that theist motto?
"Be a Theist! You can worship anything you want, dragons, lizard mosquitoes on snow fire, it can be anything you imagine, after all, it's not like anyone can prove it doesn't exist.."
Well, hell that list could even include nice jet boats, and expensive cars, yachts, antiques, money, gold, silver, diamonds or even oneís self.

Thank you for bringing that up.:)

I think a spiritual breath and cpr are two different things. That's that whole twisting and turning of interpretation I was talking about.

I have actually intubated 1 baby and 1 neonate. But open heart massage was probably the coolest thing I have ever gotten to do in the hospital.

Dave confessed he uses his hot tub as a toilet. Go ahead and sit by the George Burns look alike but remember those are not cigars floating by you.

Daffy here you clearly stated mouth to mouth yet your scripture was breath to nostril. Do you know the difference between a mouth and nose?

Wow just wow.

More than Myths. Do you think CPR is a myth?
Have you ever been trained or given CPR?
Did you know the first example of mouth to mouth resuscitation occurred in the bible?
You probably donít know much about fire science. But the first recorded backdraft also is recorded in the bible that resulted in fatalities.
Genealogy, songs, poems, history, military tactics that are still taught in West Point are in the bible.

I don't believe in the absolute infallibility of numbers. I don't run out of gas. Not after a couple of times a very long time ago.
Actually, all thinking, even yours, started off as a bunch of random chemicals and electrical impulses. Our brains even have to learn how to move all of our muscles, that's why infants often appear to move about randomly, it's the brain learning what impulses accomplish which movements. Even the regulation of the heart and lungs has to be learned, but due to the simplicity of those communications it is learned very quickly. The brain is a learning engine, not a predefined set of instructions, there is no JMP FFFF op code.

"Mouth to nose" would never work for CPR. Also you are making excuses for your abiogenesis myth, it doesn't say CPR and it talks about two unproven things.

Ah yes, sad illness, one of many genetic diseases. It's rather ironic about how much we know about the brain, the brain is almost fully understood, and way simpler than we had originally thought. The problem is getting inorganic processors to behave like organic processes, if we could accomplish that then we could make true artificial intelligence.
