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.

You did not answer my question. But then again, that was to be expected.
You didn’t ask me specifically a question. I responded to a question you asked someone else related to peanut and bee allergies.

As I stated before, Jesus never criticized anyone who went to a Doctor. The Apostle Paul had a good friend who was known as the “Beloved Physician.”

This Physician was one of the earliest disciples and was thought to have written one of the four gospels.

So what is wrong with seeking medical help when one is in trouble with Anaphylactic Shock?

The answer more precisely is nothing is wrong with seeking medical help. It’s not forbidden in the bible. It has never been forbidden in the bible, ever.

There is no eleventh commandment that says,“Thou shalt not seek medical attention or call 911.”

So now my question to you. Why do you think believers should refrain from seeking medical attention for Anaphylactic Shock?

Did not God allow men to try and help themselves? If a man falls into a hole is it wrong for someone to come along and throw him a rope?

In your analogy why doesn’t God throw them the rope and save them every time? In that case why doesn’t God do everything including building bridges, schools, houses, cities……………..?

We as humanity can do some things ourselves. And we should do all we can before we pick up the phone and call heaven for help.

As a guess, I'd say because we can explain them.
What I find amusing is that you fail to realize that other believers of other religions experience miracles from their religions, too, just like you do.
Just like you, they "know" that their religion is the "one, true religion."
In fact, their miracles back them up on that. Just like yours do for you.
Oh it is so good to hear from you. I will always love you.

I can’t speak for other religions since I’m not a international world traveler that studies such things.

But I did hear of one such miracle. A cow patty in Texas suddenly showed the image of the virgin Mary. They took it and people from all over came to look at it.

Then they decided to send it to the Pope. When the Pope opened up the box and saw it he said,“Holy Sh*t.”

<quoted text>Your reasoning will not accept any evidence of God.

This is clear from your posts.

Problem isn't the evidence plenty of people have seen the evidence and come to a relationship with God through the evidence.

The problem is that you have a prior commitment to naturalism.

And anything that does not fit your worldview is discarded as evidence.

And because your worldview is founded on the need to deny God you're never going to accept evidence.

You think you are god and you don't wanna surrender that therefore God has no place in your life. Because you don't want him there not because he doesn't exist.
You sure about that?

“Christianity is dying,” so we have been told by Atheist for years. The church is dying, the pews are empty, and people are leaving by the millions.

Is that really true? Not if you take into account the Bible is one of the hottest free downloads ever. It seems modern technology has brought a resurgence to the number one seller of all times.

SAN DIEGO, August 14, 2013 –“The Bible is the world’s best selling book, with an astonishing six billion copies sold since its first official print publication date.
So perhaps it shouldn’t be a huge surprise that one of the best selling smartphone apps of all time is also based on the Good Book. The Bible App by YouVersion has made history, reaching 100 million downloads. It’s been among the top 100 free apps for three consecutive years according to Apple’s iTunes charts.”

bible may be most printed book but doesnt even come close to being a best seller

best selling books of all time
Do keep in mind that the list makes a distinction between "most published and distributed" and "best selling."

That eliminates contenders like the Bible, the Qur'an, and Quotations from Chairman Mao. Too, sales figures for individual Harry Potter and Twilight books are, for some reason, said to be so unreliable that they are not included in the list (although the Potter series is estimated to have sold more than 450 million copies in total, and the Twilight series, some 116 million copies).

If we accept these standards, the best selling single-volume books of all-time are said to be:
A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens - 1859 - 200 million copies +
Le Petit Prince - Antoine de Saint-Exupery - 1943 - 200 million
The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien - 1954-1955 - 150 million

Let me help you,

Which is more? 200 million or 6 Billion?

Yes of course the #200 is larger than the #6 but you have to consider the word behind the number.

Which is more? Million or Billion?

The letter “M” is 13th in the alphabet and the letter “B” is 2ond. That doesn’t mean the letter “M” is greater than the letter “B”.

I think we can say 6 Billion is more than 200 million.

Do you agree?

I know it happens and many are saved through modern medical science. If you ever visit some of the old cemeteries that go back into the 1800’s. You will notice a large percentage of baby graves.
I hate it when children die. I hate it even more when children are abused by adults. Mistreated, starved, beaten, hated, locked in cages.
Death is a threshold we shall all enter into, both young and old, great and small.
That is some nice story-telling.

But it fails to explain why your god refuses the endless prayers of parents and nurses, to save the lives of infants who are dying.

Why does your god make seemingly random "miracles" here and there, but refuses to help the most innocent of lives?(infants)
