Nice try. We were discussing "pink" elephants.
We also can't see gravity, but all agreee it is demonstrably true.
Do not attempt to use science to prove the existence of your god. It will not work.
Simply admit you take his existence as an article of faith. Nothing to do with thinking or reason or evidence.
So how are you different than the guy who sees a pink elephant on his wall??(I believe you called him "irrational.")
HughBe---Unlike you, I can't see your VOICE but it exists. I can't see God but He exists.

Former--Nice try. We were discussing "pink" elephants.

HughBe--- Let me complete your thoughts. "We were discussing "pink" elephants" on WALLS. It is my hope that you do realize that such things are BS. However, your voice which you cannot see is REAL.

Former---We also can't see gravity, but all agreee it is demonstrably true.

HughBe--- Did it become TRUE when we discovered how to demonstrate it?

Former---Simply admit you take his existence as an article of faith. Nothing to do with thinking or reason or evidence.

HughBe--- When last have YOU and science seen an ATOM? Before science conceived of ATOMS did they exist?

Nothing is wrong with nuts, I actually have 2. The only concern that I would have is that you tend to eat nuts.

Yes, atoms, gravity, oxygen, radiation etc ALL existed prior to being "discovered" by science.

Religion dates back several thousand years.

Has science simply not gotten around to proving it or disproving it?

Or is more likely these folks take their religion as a matter of faith?

Isn't that we we refer to belief in religion as "faith?"

Why again do you attempt to make the comparison with science?

Assuming he has a steady hand.

He probably has a jar full of foreskins.

This is God. Stop trying to figure me out. It would be like an ant trying to comprehend a pink elephant who is the star in a circus.
Just do the best you can, keep on learning, treat others like you like to be treated. Don't be lazy.
Push yourself to be better and somewhere down the road your offspring and the human race as a whole will be better.
Bad things will still happen and you will never know why. Deal with it the best you can. Have a nice day.

I always knew that Florida was God's waiting room but didn't know he actually lived there. Good to know.

I do follow the Golden Rule. But need to work on being less lazy.

BTW - is God Jewish? Just curious.

Do you go by the name "God", or do prefer a nickname?

How do you define belief and faith?

Is science free of belief and faith?

Why you should know what is a nut considering the fact that you're a big nut which means that you're very low on intelligence which is a fact.

Red and blue both have color in common.

Former--Yes, atoms, gravity, oxygen, radiation etc ALL existed prior to being "discovered" by science.

HughBe--- In other words, things can exist even if mankind is IGNORANT of them or INCAPABLE of demonstrating or PROVING their existence. Such is the reality with God.

Former---Religion dates back several thousand years.

HughBe--- So what? Would you say that gravity dates back MILLIONS of years?

Former---Has science simply not gotten around to proving it or disproving it?

HughBe--- yes. Has science proven everything?

Former---Or is more likely these folks take their religion as a matter of faith?

HughBe--- Many things in science at least starts out as a matter of faith. The atom is an example. It is my understanding that it cannot really be seen. Have you heard of the words scientific hypothesis? If yes, explain them.

Former---Isn't that we we refer to belief in religion as "faith?"

HughBe--- When God spoke to Israel there was no FAITH. When the Red Sea was parted there was no faith. When Jesus comes again there will be no FAITH.

Former---Why again do you attempt to make the comparison with science?

HughBe--- Why the seeming concern? Must I take it as an acknowledgement on your part that God is far more complex than science and therefore the comparison is unfair?

Hail my fellow human. I'm glad that you have called yourself "chaveri" by the use of the words FELLOW along with AND.

Now when was I made your landsman?

What is the purpose of mikveh? Is the mikveh based on faith?
