yeah, yeah that's exactly my point, you can not SEE your hunger but you CAN feel it, it just the same kind of sensation that you feel when the God's will is around you and you communicated with him (I'm not talking about praying only), so that clearly demonstrate that you can measure it
Nooooo, your 'feeling' is not measurement.

RE: Ask a Theist!
Haven't asked a question in a while, so let's get current. What do you, as a theist, think of the GOP candidates that were all vying for the nomination? Go all the way back to Cain and Bachmann days.

Hunger IS measurable. It's not like we don't know why you get hungry.

Bah, you'll be all right as long as your shots are up to date. Wink

I don't think either of you understands what 'measurable' means.

In what units do you measure hunger?

In the USA, the number of Big Macs necessary for satiation is the standard unit of measurement for hunger. Wink

It was a trick question. The correct answer is doughnuts. Smartass

Gingrich - He's fake. Can't stand him. He pretends to be righteous to gain the evangelical vote.
Cain - Like him okay. His policies were crap, but I think with the right advisers he would have done well.
Bachmann - lol
Santorum - Dangerous loony that should never be allowed within 100 feet of the Whitehouse.
Romney - He's a lot like Obama in my opinion. As a president, he wouldn't do much better/worse than Obama. He'll never beat Obama, though.
Paul - The only candidate I could ever get behind. I pretty much support every policy he has... too bad he has no chance.
