I can understand the concept. There is no evidence that any such thing occurs.

Hmmmm...

The difference between info, or most anything passed parallel and serial. Serial takes time, and has markers, such as dead space between expressions.

You can have a truck full of cows, but you have to unload them one at a time.

I guess none. You're the genius atheist....
So? It is irrational to say that it DOES with no evidence.
It's just as irrational as saying it DOESN'T exist with no evidence.

You keep missing that.
Why do you go by the "assumption" that cars aren't powered by fairies?
Because I know all about car engines, fairies aren't in them.(Except for the Prius)
Why do you go by the "assumption" that your house isn't alive and mad at you for not vacuuming often enough?
Because I know that wood, stucco, concrete, drywall, paint and glass are inanimate objects and cannot get angry.
Because you reject extraordinary claims that aren't supported, right?
No.

There's a difference between extraordinary claims and ridiculous extraordinary claims....

You missed the point.
They would recognize it as plausible even if it didn't exist at the time.
It's doubtful that they could even comprehend it...

If you wanted to be honest about it, all you could say is that you don't believe souls exist.

Watch, I'll go first:

I believe souls exist.

None that that specific phenomenon regarding human souls does, but only because science hasn't figured how to measure it yet.

The technology, therefore the possibility exists. Therefore evidence. As good as abiogenesis, anyhow. Science has already proven we are assembled of tiny little bits of info.

The possibility is highly possible. It would take a knee jerk believer in the impossibility of it happening to deny the possibility.

The process, or principle DOES exist. The product does exist. The destination is unknown because we haven't sen the limits of the universe yet.

There was a poster on the PTAG named eternalrock that portrayed this existence as a computer game, simulation, or whatever. I understood his frames of reference, but it appeared he was a gamer gone mad. He may have the right yo yo, just the wrong string.

All of us express part of the greater, because we are facets of it. Just kind of incomplete due to that parallel serial and bus width thingy.

Some of these Topix posters indicate this greater needs to take a dump.

Speaking of normal who was the middle eastern guy who went into your Dad's hospital room and converted him? You always run from this question.

Please say you weren't implying it was Jesus or an apostle. Seriously Daffy please say that is not what you were hinting at.

That's it huh? You just turn off like a broken TV and get discarded? That is your assumption.

Pretty much when you're dead it's worse than a broken TV, which could be repaired by replacement parts. Degeneration nulls the possibility of replacement parts fixing a human.

Maybe, the Christians got it right on the God thing. What they didn't know that is there is intelligent life right and God manifested himself in another way than us.
And there is millions of our civilizations among this universe and millions of ways God revealed himslf to them
But see it was none of business to know how he did it. It is beyond our feeble little minds. Us humans think we are terminally unique. Guess what. We are not. We are little specks in the infinite, large cosmos.
No we are not specks in the universe.We are created in the image of God.If you disagree then you are nothing but an animal.Personally.I think I am above that.Some are not.
