Genesis 30

(30:37) And Jacob took him rods of green poplar, and of the hazel and chesnut tree; and pilled white strakes in them, and made the white appear which [was] in the rods.
(30:38) And he set the rods which he had pilled before the flocks in the gutters in the watering troughs when the flocks came to drink, that they should conceive when they came to drink.
(30:39) And the flocks conceived before the rods, and brought forth cattle ringstraked, speckled, and spotted.
(30:40) And Jacob did separate the lambs, and set the faces of the flocks toward the ringstraked, and all the brown in the flock of Laban; and he put his own flocks by themselves, and put them not unto Laban's cattle.
(30:41) And it came to pass, whensoever the stronger cattle did conceive, that Jacob laid the rods before the eyes of the cattle in the gutters, that they might conceive among the rods.
(30:42) But when the cattle were feeble, he put [them] not in: so the feebler were Laban's, and the stronger Jacob's.

Is it rational to believe a god could make 2+2= anything other then 4?

You believe your god can do that, don't you?

Dunno about God, but it's trivial for Girly to make 2+2=10 or 2+2=11 by just changing the radix.

The only real solution for your problem is leaving this forums. Frankly 2 trolls like the Q guy and Call of the wild is more than enough. You are the one trolling this forums and you are bitching about the members responses. Facepalm We don't need your Jebus and your silly beliefs. I will leave you alone if you accept that I'm the absolute champ of the last person to post wins thread. Wink
You can see it how you want to. I'm not trolling. I'm not a Poe. God reigns. So simple.

Energy is a measure of the ability to do work. There is no such thing as "negative energy" because the ability to do work can never be less than nothing.

Source: The Bible. That story about the guy who gets his employer to agree to give him all the spotted calves as his salary, and then he shows spots to the pregnant cows and they all have spotted calves and he ends up rich. I'm not going to bother finding the chapter and verses. Anybody who's read the Bible remembers the story.

(You don't have to believe the damn thing is the "Word of God" in order to read it. It's really not a bad book if you read it as the work of fiction that it is.)

A relationship with an imaginary friend? That has some good and some bad. The good is that you get to pretend that your imaginary friend is saying whatever you want to hear. The bad is that if you take it too seriously you can wind up in a padded cell in the booby hatch.

There is good and there is evil. There is right and there is wrong. God wins. He is undefeated. You can't win unless you surrender to him. Then life is a blessing. Otherwise you get his wrath. I don't want that for you. I don't wish bad on the worst of my enemies. And I consider you my friends. #GodIsGood #AllTheTime #HeIsInAGoodMoodAlways
