How is the second a lie?

You do realize that you have in effect claimed evidence for the existence of god.

Please tell us.
You do realize that evidence is not the same as total proof don't you?

In fact entanglement is so fast, future entangled events can affect the past.
Yes I agree and it's very evident in the case of mr. tick losing his Intelligence.

You DO realize that science does not EVER "totally prove things," right?

Seriously, have you even gone to college?

I see someone is going to have to explain the scientific method to you. Plus the meaning of "scientific theory."

"crazies who call themselves Christians"
You calling people like Hitler Christians does not make it so.
Crazies who call themselves Christians does not mean they are.
When I refer to Christians I am referring to real Christians not your crazes.
Kong was wrong about Christian Dominionists as you also are.

They are Christians. And Hitler was a Christian too.

You are using the "No true Scotsman" fallacy.

Just because they don't measure up to your standards of what a Christian is does not mean that they are not Christians.

If you want to claim that Kong and I are wrong you need to prove it. I do believe that Kong included a link that showed you are wrong.

Yes, of course. Woodtick said there was no evidence for god and you called that lie. Logically that means you are claiming there is evidence for god.

So let's see it. Or don't you understand logic either?

Yes, I was right.

MM, on the previous page you called this claim of woodtick's a lie:

"no person alive has ever given a shred of evidence for any god, gods or goddesses."

Do you realize that by calling that a lie you are in effect claiming there is evidence given by someone somewhere and who is still alive today that there is evidence for the existence of god.

So one more time: Where is that evidence?

A neuroscientist would know.

Science questions the God spot in the brain. ;-)

Such efforts to reveal the neural correlates of the divine—a new discipline with the warring titles “neurotheology” and “spiritual neuroscience”—not only might reconcile religion and science but also might help point to ways of eliciting pleasurable otherworldly feelings in people who do not have them or who cannot summon them at will. Because of the positive effect of such experiences on those who have them, some researchers speculate that the ability to induce them artificially could transform people’s lives by making them happier, healthier and better able to concentrate.

I'm not wrong at all. I still haven't forgotten the fact that you **lied** some months back when you claimed historical references supported the existence of Jesus. Some of us then pointed out your errors and you were unable to address them. You just ignored it and moved onto something else.
No Ducky, you are getting it wrong.
I have read and watched both religious, secular and scientific books and films( comics) about Jesus, and i have found out that he actually existed, don't be dishonest with your assertions.
There were Jewish conspiracies, that was why Jesus stories were not recorded during his life time on earth.

Like i said, there were Jewish conspiracies, they used the Romans to perpetrate their evils, but the same Romans under Constantine , actually saw the need to reveal the truth, paved the way for Christianity to spread, this would never have happened if Jesus Christ is un-real.
Waiting for your response!

And again, Mr. Ducky!
Jesus Christ, is the very base of Christianity. If truly his existence is false, there would be nothing like Christianity today. Evidence 2.
And again, the same Roman power, that the Jews used, paved the way for the gospel under Constantine. Evidence 3.

In continuation, if truly according to you, Jesus never existed. People of historical importance would not have talked and wrote about him.
Pliny the Eldest and some others witnessed him, and he passed it, to his dear relative, Pliny the Young, who talked about Christ and his followers.

Pliny the Elder, born in AD 23, in Italy. Given Jesus' birth date of 4 BC (possibly 6 BC) and his death at the age of 33, that means Pliny would have been six years old (possibly 4) when Jesus was crucified.

A six year old boy living more than thousand miles away does not sound like much of a witness to me. Whether later in life he heard of this new cult of Jesus is another question. But Pliny was no Jesus witness.

This stretching of the truth to support your hopes that Jesus was well documented merely shows up the fact that he was not.

There is no such thing as "sin". "Sins" are immoral acts according to religious belief and morality is subjective.

That still does'nt count, like i said, people of historical importance like them wrote and talked about Christ. Like i earlier said, there were Jewish conspiracies, using the Roman strong holds to stop the whole Jesus issue, that was why there was no proper documentation after his death on earth.
