Oh, I just have to include this for you re: miracles.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national...-1.1167774

anyhow...
I assume you believe this is a miracle.

All I see is a medical occurrence that doesn't have a known medical explanation. Why must "unknown" equal "miracle"? In all likelihood, there is a medical explanation, but we don't yet know everything there is to know about human biology and medicine so we can't yet identify the explanation. Regardless, I don't see a reason to bring a god into this (and certainly not a way to know which god) except out of pure randomness.

"I have no explanation, so I'll arbitrarily choose god as the explanation." That one line of thinking sums up far too much in religion. Personally, I find it more satisfying to have no explanation at all for now.

aka, the argument from ignorance.

2 questions to ask a theist.
Mine would be...
1. Is there truly a god??
2. (If Yes) Can you prove it???

A belief based on faith cannot be proved/disproved.

RE: 2 questions to ask a theist.
Okay, to all who are curious as to why I respond some posts vs. others.

Think what you wish (ie can't respond) but I chose posts that quite simply INTEREST me and what I believe will bring about a fun discussion.

If, like a few of you on here, don't like that. Well, that's your issue. Why do some of you feel entitled to a response from me? I don't of any of you. Don't reply to me? Okay by me.

There you have it.

Say silly things if you wish, that just shows me such posters are not interested in discussion but arguing.

You make an argument full of fallacies and once you get called out on it, you are no longer interested? Yeah, as I've said, intellectually dishonest.

Regardless of that, you didn't answer my question at all. What evidence do you have for the resurrection?

RE: 2 questions to ask a theist.
No need to get mad, IfC.

E 2 = (mc 2)2 + (pc )2
614C → 714N + e + ̅νe
2 K(s) + 2 H2O(l) → 2 KOH(aq) + H2 (g) + 196 kJ/mol
It works, bitches.

P- who's mad?

Just a blanket reply since so many people brought up.

I don't get mad about such things, especially in forums.

Wouldn't that depend on the belief? I could take the faith-based position that evolution wasn't a thing.

True. But evolution is observable.

I should have rephrased my statement to include observation.
