Just a myth. Either the boy wasn't actually dead, or the story was simply made up. People do not come back from the dead, and the Bible cannot be used as evidence for its own claims.

I'm sorry, but your beliefs are much too silly to take seriously. Got anything else we can discuss?

A "sick boy" is still a "live boy". A "dead boy" is not a "sick boy". They didn't have cardiac monitors etc. People near death may have looked dead. The editors/redactors of Bible tales were not there, and they were using ancient Near Eastern LITERATURE (not clinical text books) to further their own literary/religious ends. The Bible says all sorts of crazy shit, (talking donkeys, witches conjuring the "shades" (ghosts) of dead people. There is no reason to take any of it literally).

If a god brought anyone back, they would no longer be themselves. Their brains would have degraded, and their atoms would have moved on, and due to the Pauli Exclusion Principle, the miracle would have to include not only the dead boy's physical make-up, but also the entire universe's atomic structure also. No so likely is it ?

Science and Christianity have one thing in common, they both are a search for the truth. Or maybe I should say that Christianity should be the search for truth? That is what it is for me.

Where science has constantly corrected it’s theories through testing and research which may falsify a portion of a theory when error is found resulting a better and stronger theory, Christianity has been stagnant in moving beyond the cross and Jesus dying for the world’s sins. By sticking to the traditional doctrine based not on the teachings of Jesus, but on commandments of the other people in the Bible (mainly the writings of Paul), the Christian religion has been a thorn in the crown of Jesus rather than a harvester of His wheat. (But, as will be revealed sometime in this thread, this is done in fulfillment of what had been written in the OT scriptures.)

The scientific method begins with a question being asked. Initial data is collected and an hypothesis is formed. This hypothesis is then subject to testing and/or further observation which will either falsify or verify the hypothesis. Verification results in a theory being established. The findings of a theory is continually tested and must be repeatable by peers.

Question: Is the doctrine of Jesus the truth as He declares it to be?

Test: Can any of the sayings of Jesus be proved to be a lie?

I will produce the initial evidence that supports His bold statement in another post.

(I always close with that. I do not mean it to be an offense to anyone. I just consider what I write to be offerings, not the final word on any matter.)

Simple test for the claim that religion and science are both searching for truth.

Question: Can you accept the possibility that there is no god? If there isn't a preponderance of evidence to back up the claim on a god will you walk away from religion?

If you say you would continue to believe, then no religion isn't the search for truth. It's choosing to view the world the way you want because you want it to be that way regardless of the truth.

If you say you would walk away without sufficient evidence for the god claim, then welcome future atheist. lol (its a joke calm down)

Prove it.
Someone wrote that.
All kinds of people have written all kinds of nonsense.
You have no evidence for that.
No hundred year-old woman has ever once in all of history had a baby.
Not. Once. It's not possible.
Nothing about your belief has anything to do with science.
Science was not invented when that was written.
There was no word for "history" in the Hebrew language.

Are you referring to Abraham and Sarah?
