That's so cute. Got any evidence?

I've had it with you. [Image: images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTNLxtBKTMxvSOicLlj9gV...Whyx-pf-9u]

Exactly! Who are we to dismiss the validity of texts we do not know enough about?

I'm glad you caught that.

Please Define "God" before blurting it out every now and then like a frog.

Is your "god" omniscient&omnipotent or not ? if so then tell me how to fix the paradoxes related with it.

(I absolutely despise it when people say "your god" - flatter me and say "God" with a capital "G")

He is both omniscient and omnipotent.

Then and only then one might be able to begin to take such nebulously ill-defined meaningless claims seriously.

Religion is created to explain what we do not understand, and in this it shares the barest of similarities with science. Unfortunately religion builds great edifices upon assumptions, myth making, political control; and then codifies everything as unquestionable dogma. Science questions everything, even it own conclusions; and thus is in a near constant state of flux created by it's continuous self improvement.

Religion assumes the answers and seeks to assert itself, science always questions and seeks to disprove itself. This is the core of their ideological separation, and why the later succeeds at the expense of the former.

Exactly! But what of the mentions of planets orbiting in the Qu'ran, the notions of parallel universes in the Mahayana Brahmajala Sutra (again, not sure), and the foreshadowing of political phenomenon in the New Testament? Do you think that it was a coincidence; that they where bound to get some things right?


The existence of other non-star celestial bodies were know to the Greeks (much like the fact the Earth was not flat), so their mention in the Qu'ran is less than impressive. Parallel universes, much like string theory, are nothing more than mathematically elegant mental gymnastics; both are unfortunately beyond the reach of experimentation or verification by science. In other words, they are purely speculative. Any foreshadowing in the New Testament is so vague as to be so open to interpretation as to be utterly pointless. Anyone who writes down sizable amount of bullshit vaguely enough who has a sufficient amount people buy into it unquestionable will find that some of them have enough conformation bias to selectively interpret the passages as favorably as possible in hindsight.

Those are logically incoherent concepts.
