Sorry Clay, but the CC RESISTS all scientific "reasoning," as you put it.<quoted text>
Miracles are God revealing Himself in a supernatural way.
No, I am not talking about an image of Jesus Christ in a cookie.
The Catholic Church exhausts all scientific reasoning BEFORE they officially declare something worthy of belief.
The main 'rule' I guess, is for you to believe in Him...
The CCF has refused modern testing on relics, communion tissue, all except one test on the Shroud.
The test on the shroud came back as most suspected, a 13th century fake, but then your CC tells us "oops, the test sample was an old repair."
Now the CC refuses further testing and you claim they want to "exhaust all scientific reasoning BEFORE they officially declare something worthy of belief."
Sir, that is the definition of delusional.
I asked for a list of things god requires us to do, and you could only "guess."
And if I don't love your imaginary god, then what happens to me? Would you use the description that Mary told the three little girls at the sun miracle?
That's OK. We agree on the other 95% of mankind's religious dogma. It's all imaginary except for yours, right?
