^ Ignorance. According to the Christian view, when the body dies, the spirit lives on...so there is no death in terms of nonexistence. So when I said I have a "life-term" contract, I am implying the contract is extended beyond the physical realm...in other words, FOREVER.

According to the coroner and the courts the contract is no longer in effect. What you thought was implied don't mean dick. Your Christian view don't mean dick. You haven't signed any contracts have you? Of course you haven't. You're not even old enough.

What good is the coroner and the courts to a Supreme Being that rules the universe?

Not all contracts have to be signed...there is a thing called a verbal contract..and I verbally made a contract with God, he told me that if I give my life and my soul to him and surrender to his will, then he will in return give me eternal life.

Those are the terms of the contract...and after thinking about it...it was an offer I couldn't refuse Cool

You ever notice how easy it is for atheists to claim that prayers don't work when someone prays for something, and don't get it? But how hard it is for them to admit that prayers work when someone prays for something, and get it??

Tell me what you pray for. If you had just a minute to breathe would you pray for something like another chance?

All of your 'arguments' are arguments from ignorance and arguments from incredulity.

Before Chas made the above post, he thought *Instead of demonstrating how consciousness originated from the brain, I will just tell him what his arguments "are" *

Your question about consciousness is an obvious God of the gaps ploy.
We have not yet explained consciousness - that does not mean it is inexplicable without resorting to gods or souls or other woo.

"God of the gaps" is just another argument from ignorance.

First off, it isn't a God of the gaps argument, because we are actually using arguments for dualism, namely the Argument From Consciousness, and the Argument from Intentionality, and it is based on these kind of arguments that we draw the conclusion. See how that works?

Now sure, you can try to refute those arguments...but until you do that, all of this God of the Gaps stuff is just an old fashioned quip by atheists to theists, which is just played-out here in 2015.
