"About 15 billion years ago a tremendous explosion started the expansion of the universe." Quote from link...
...How does he know? Was he there 15 Billion years ago to witness the Big Bang?
"and, stop it with your two rocks being banged together thing"
Why? Isn't that the theory? But I don't care if it was two rocks or two pizza pies adding too much ham and pepperoni, it is absurd for people to say that this happened 15 billion years ago with no recorded documents. On the other hand, there ARE recorded documents with healings of cancer overnight due to praying to the Saints, with no scientific explanation.
"i know plenty of people who had cancer, some prayed, some didnt...most died....and, because someone being healed from cancer...it doesnt mean god is real...i mean...."
-Then what does it mean? Yes, most died, but all that means is God performed some miracles for the faithful perhaps to strengthen our faith. If God gave man EVERYTHING they asked for, if EVERY pray was answered, could you imagine the chaos? If you have seen the movie 'Bruce Almighty' (which comes to mind,) some prayers are meant NOT to be answered but that's not for us to determine.
"i also think its quite arrogent of you to say protestantism was created by satan..." I said,
"All the other Protestant demoninations (like 30,000) have been broken away from the Catholic Church. Could this be Satan and people just believing what they want to believe?" I didn't say it WAS Satan, I said COULD, as in an interrogative statement.
"incase you havent done any sort of history class in the past few years..the catholics abused people highly"
True, you are correct, all peoples have abused people throughout history. Martin Luther was correct with some of his TEACHINGS not his ACTS. Some of the people of the Catholic Church were and still are corrupt, but not the Church itself, for if it were, then Christ would be corrupt.
"you should have said creation theory vs big bang theory.....cause theyre both theory's,"
No, you are wrong. The Big Bang is a THEORY. God is NOT. What else could have created something out of nothing if there is not God? That in itself is proof of God, forget all the countless miracles that science has documented and failed to explain. Or are we just a figment of our imagination?
"although, there is more evidence of the big bang happening then creation from god"
You're funny. Give me some facts and proof of the Big Bang. Give me RECORDED DOCUMENTS from 15 million trillion billion years ago.
"the only thing pointing to the theory that god created the world is a book....a 2000 year old book"
Are you here? Am I here? If yes, then there is a God. And actually it is a 6000 year old book. But that is just semantics.
KOG- Very interesting...there have also been reports with teenagers playing with ouija (O-WEE-GEE) boards, throwing it into the fire and hearing screams from the fire.
Here is a starting place for documentation on miracles.[url]www.lourdes-france.org/index.php?goto_centre=ru&contexte=en&id=491&id_rubrique=491'>Link
The best document is probably the Universe itself. How do we know about the Big Bang? The idea is used because of the so called "Red shift", which scientists have observed. This means that other suns are moving away from ours, meaning the Universe is continously expanding at a faster and faster rate. This has been calculated backwards and gave us the approximate time at which the Universe started to spread outwards. That time is not 6000 years ago.
"but not the Church itself, for if it were, then Christ would be corrupt."
Have you ever met Christ? How do you know he wasn't corrupt? History is written by the victors, anything could have been written by any loony in the Bible and people would believe it.
"And actually it is a 6000 year old book. But that is just semantics."
Guess what, there are recordings far older than that, take ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, they date back far longer than 6000 years. So...did 'God' write these up before he made the Universe?
"Then what does it mean? Yes, most died, but all that means is God performed some miracles for the faithful perhaps to strengthen our faith."
But how does God then determine? I assume you're talking about the all-loving OT God. I would call the miracles Jesus performed as very arbitrary. I would agrue that a God that performs miracles at all is not worth worshipping. How can a good God solve a trivial problem of wine running out at a wedding and yet would not save the thousands starving in Sudan right now? If he was doing them then to strengthen our faith, why doesn't he perform a miracle now that so many people are breaking away from the church?
Also, the explosion isn't two things banging together, no idea where you got that from DR. And even if two big ass rocks did bang together now, they wouldn't cause an explosion, they'd just mash eachother under the pressure and bits would be shot off all over the place.
I still believe in God, like i said earlier, but i question why he doesn't solve big tragedies going on today in the world. Also what i said earlier about how it is coincidence that we have everything to live + more. Could evolution grow feelings (like love, hate, anger, happyness, sadness, etc..) in human beings?
You could also argue different kinds of religion. But if you look into the other religions, they seem to be talking about the same thing. Look at Islam, they believe in Muhammed as their holy god, maybe God and Muhammed are the same. And when Muhammed talked to Abraham, maybe Abraham is the same person as Jesus. We could have mixed our information up over time, kind of like we misinterpret things.
The south park version of this is, is that aliens put thousands of different species on earth (like deer, humans, monkeys, giraffs, ducks, etc...) for some big universal t.v show.
That makes about as much sense as evolution and religion really.
It's so hard to argue/debate this subject. I mean there is no proof for either side. No use in worrying about it while your living, because once you die, you find out the real truth.
The only thing I'm THINKing about is, trying to make sense of what you just said.
no offense, but you completely lost me on what in-and-out burger has to do with how we came to existance...
And what if you got banned for spamming?
