believing in scriptures is hardest thing to do ..especially in current times since there are so many physical proofs that contradict scriptures of various faith..believing in god is not such hard thing to do though..
Sorry about not responding sooner. musccle relaxers and an ocasional pain pill causes irregular Power Naps.
As a child looking out the window into the darkness and ya hear things moving in the night; Your imagionation may run wild? It might be a lion, bear, raccoon or a rabbit. It might be a burgler, or your big sister sneaking out her window but you know you heard something ! There are limitless posabilities as to what it might be.
If there was nothing ?????? that is only one posability!
Put them on the balance scales. Limitless posabilities on one side outweigh nothing
This is a very weak excuse for believing The Nonsense. It is a dishonest answer as well. Speaking of "probabilities" when you really mean "extremely unlikelies" is what causes all the fights. You think I won't notice you slipping in the word "probability" instead of "possibility"?
Something Must Be True huh? And despite mankind's inadequate comprehension - you are comfortable that your comprehension skills are better than everyone else's?
Basically what you are saying is - you cannot comprehend the idea that there is no god, therefore there must be a god. And amongst an infinite number of possible gods - you are happy to pick the one in The Nonsense.
This is the easy answer. This is what holds us back as a species. This is what causes all the arguments and - because you have to have blind faith and then lie to yourself that it is "reason" or "logic" and you have "proof" or "evidence" - you must defend this at all costs. Which is why your religion causes so much conflict.
You think you have made a reasonable argument here I assume. All you have done is fooled yourself. But - you ain't fooling me. Probabilities?
If you want to talk "probabilities," - look at it like this:
God/No god = 50/50 chance assuming you are prepared to disregard common sense and our obvious inability to know all conditions regarding this.
So - there is a 50% "probability" that a god exists.
There is an infinite number of "possible" gods.
Therefore the "probability" of your god existing is infinity:one.

being a true sheep means you follow the word, you read, study, and thr word say's be a watchman, if you do these three things you may find things in the church thst is wrong. you must be your brothers keeper, step up and talk to them, now you hhave problems in the church, no one wants to be told they are slipping away from the word
How do you reckon the odds would be of the whole bible being written by the inspired word of the biblical god?
The story so far ain't cuttin it!
God made everything, the devil, good and evil, mankind and his son Jesus. So then he killed all of mankind, except one old bloke and some animals. He then became his own son and killed himself to atone for all the screw-ups mankind made on his instruction and to his plan.
Life depends on extremely narrow parameters, and couldn't have come into existence unless many specific, often unusual and rare, properties of physics and chemistry happened just the way they did, in just the right...
Since many threads end up in discussions about God and the Bible anyway, with both Believers and nonBelievers inputting, I think it's good to post a particular thread where discussing the Bible is not only okay but...
