Yeah, I wonder what God had for dinner the night before the "big bang."

He had beans
Human beans

No, you believe it because it grants you a magic soul and an afterlife with a loving genie who hand crafted you.

Its a great dream... it just isnt real. You cant sleep with a nightlight on forever. I can only help that people who are hopelessly lost can move past the false promises of religion.

I hope your right... just like i wish santa and the toothfairy were real.

The tooth fairy is real - it left money under my pilow loads of times when I was kid
And Santa did come down our chimney and leave presents
I have proof - Coz Santa drank the brandy and ate the cookies we left him
Mom was mad about the crumbs though

The light speed analogy is just rubbish.


fish hands?


Yep.
Give this one 250 million years.


..and it will look something like this

[...] I still can't get away from the belief and fact you used a place that is known as mystical and this is all of Gods creation. Of course I will never get around that nor do I want to.[...]

So what you are saying is that sandcastles DO occur naturally, but only when God wants them to?

That's a bit different from "They don't occur naturally," isn't it?

No, it would take evolution an infinite amount of time just to get started. Besides it already looks like this.

i was think'in the whole damn thread. I know it'[s humerous but something doesn't sit well with me this time out.
Almost like I set myself up. Or would that be paranoid ? Nevermind.


Barqs

Plausible ? ok.Contrived ? Definetely. Appropriate humour for me to be laughing ? No way. So please guys, let it rest knowing that today you've sacked the quarterback.

Your argument in musical form:


Prettier-sounding as well as more intellectually rigourous than your version.

Still nonsense, though.

Offended ? No not even close. I wear a thick skin to this forum. Hard to explain, kind of an uneasy feeling.
Respect back at you for saying so.

Argument ? Where did you see an argument in the OP ? Was I arguing a point when I said science without man is nothing/ There isn't an argument there surely. Maybe you see an argument of nonsense in the statement after that ? Man without God is nothing. I bet you a buck, God is still God without science or man. You really do fail
when it comes to your own mortality.

The combination of frailty and complexity should be enough for a truly clever person..

If you want to insult me intelligently ? First I hope I've earned it and second use some intelligence. I know you're very capable.

The old, old Paleyan argument from design.

I am only too certain of one day succeeding at mortality, as, lamentably, we all are.

Yes, her name is Woman, and Hamlet, clever fellow though he was, never really understood her.

Why, Randy, how nice of you to say so. A compliment from you is a bit like a bouquet from the school hood, though – sweet and touching all right, but scary as hell.
