Well, there you go then.

On the other hand, there seems to be some need to proselytize. That can be tough with those who lack faith and have a more pragmatic bent.


Keep your faith to yourself, please.

It's prudent to look before you leap, or so I'm told.

Faith apparently requires a measure of assent and trust.

Assent and trust being my particular boggle.

But finding a tag in our DNA that said "God Waz Ere" has got to at least raise the odd eyebrow or two.

You're not gonna see it.

Because, mysterious ways and such.

You don't think a creator's address or signature might come in handy?


To who? I certainly don't need it. And lets say for a second it is in
the genome and it's even already been found. The finding is now
at the mercy of countless variables that could easily leave it in
the darkness.

Scripture even suggests that at one time God was self evident on the
Earth. So easy to blame God for not leaving us evidence of his existence.
Instead of doing some further thinking to realize we may well have
destroyed such evidence ourselves long ago. And even his absence is
per our request. All this is a time granted by God to do things our way
without his interference. But even as we speak that time seems to be
approaching it's final hour.



Every thing you say just makes it more and more obvious that this creature was never really a god at all, if in fact it ever existed. And without that "author page" in our genome, it's very hard to say with any certainty that such a being is relevant to modern day society.

I don't necessarily discount the notion of a creator, given the grand scale and scheme of the universe.

The proof, however, remains to be seen in any sort of tangible manner.

Scripture says a lot of things all of such a product of Man with fear and fallibility around in spades.

His absence per our request???

You will need to elaborate there, i did not ken we had a direct channel, short of a missing Ark of the Covenant, and that was a one-way affair was it not?

Absence per our request indeed.

Is 80% of the people on the planet not screaming out for his return in rather a few different ways?

A masterpiece of a movie that will always hold a special place in my heart.

"Ive seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die."

And the second helping was actually rather great ta boot.

Tears in the rain.


Damn, what a line. It's all any of our memories are.

Can't see why, infallible plans, omnipotence and all that jazz.

How could anything go wrong or become a cause for concern?

And at that one last second, life was the most important thing to him and he let the dove fly free...

He was doomed, and he saved one who wasn't.

Adaption to the surrounding.

Beings are living for thousands of years in a surrounding that changes them.

Something guides that "adaptation"
Most mutations are "bad" (defective) mutations and are caused by some outside force.


Oh, really? And thats god?

The dove was said to be a symbol of purity and the mythological unicorn played an important part also in Blade Runner.

He also pushes a symbolic nail through one of his hands before sparing Deckard's life which reaks of some sort of Christ figure.

There is just so many weird and wonderful things you can read into the movie. LoL

He let it live is what i took from the scene.

Which is more than Humans had in store for his kind.

Gets to be the bigger Man after all, and better than his creators.

Maybe, but it seems he was deteriorating at the cellular level and used the pain to refocused. I think the dove flying free was by accident, but worked well...

That would pretty much be the golden ticket where reinforcement of our religious belief in God or Gods are concerned.
Why? Faith requires no proof.

I hear tell.


Yeah but science does
The repeatable observable and testable kind of evidence
Otherwise it’s a faith

I hear tell

You care to show some repeatable observable and testable evidence from the scientific community

Been waiting for a long time for that and everyone scatters when asked

Actually, I was more referring to him grabbing Deckard's hand before he fell.

Have you read the book, BTW?

Well that's why he was after the Longevity and incept dates.


I'm going to have to go watch that movie now. LoL

Ah well, I'm free tomorrow and the kids are off school down to Choronovirus.

So something to do i guess.
