The Bible was written by human beings 2000 years ago, so that's no proof at all.

the bible was inspired by god. in other words people saw what was going to happen before it happened, which only these things god knew then, and like they said, things are happening that are in the bible on earth to a t. Every thing in the bible can be proven it is all true history.
Report as
Especially considering that the only way the bible has any validity (considering that most of its major events are not confirmed by ANY historical source and are in many cases historically impossible) is IF one assumes that god exists and the bible is his word. Since that would require you to assume the thing you're trying to prove, that's circular logic at its worst.
God exists because the bible says so. How do we know the bible is true? Because it's the word of God. How do we know? The bible says so. And round and round we go.

ok, i will not argue with you any longer, but i know in my heart and i wouldnt be here if god had not shown up in my life when he did. you think its so obvious that God does not exist, but i will not just believe that we just poofed out of nowhere. watch the video on rforh.com...debunked... watch the first one and then get back.

That video is hilarious.

But you have tipped your hand- you don't care about evidence because you REFUSE to believe anything else. FYI- YOUR religion is the one that says we poofed out of nowhere, not science. Just because you are ignorant of science does not make the answer magic.

God made me and he made YOU. God has always been and that makes more since then than what they are shoving in our childrens faces at school everyday. YOU can believe in what you want, thats free will, but im tired of arguing it says in the word that even when they see the proof, they still wont believe. i cant prove it to you, only god can and i pray he does. God bless you!

Humans weren't created, we evolved. There is a vast amount of scientific evidence for that fact.
Claiming the answer must be god just because you don't know or understand something is a logical fallacy known as the Argument from Ignorance- for good reason.

You apparently are so ignorant of science that you think "theory" means a guess. Sorry, but to be a theory an idea must explain ALL available evidence and have none against it. The evidence for evolution is so vast it takes me an entire semester to even teach my students the basics. The entire last 150 years of biology is evidence for evolution. We've witnessed it directly in both the lab and the wild. There is far too much evidence for a limited format like this.
Start by googling "endogenous retro viral DNA", something no creationist has ever been able to explain, but that is expected in evolution.

Read the bible. Just ask God to show you and randomly open the Bible. It's shown me so many things! Seriously, I think you should open your mind to new things and dive in. (Wow, that sounded cheesy.

I've lost loved one and people very dear to me( more than a dozen) plus many friends to cancer mva's suicide and murder. I've had loved ones and friends raped and abused in awful ways. I've seen some very horrible things. I've doubted and even lost faith more than once. But each time I've been carried through these situations by things I can't explain. This world is ugly what we do to change it or how we deal with it is up to us. We don't get it handed to us. I respect your choice not to believe but don't try to convince me othewise
Report as
I'm not trying to convince you anything. I'm saying that because you find some things in the world pretty is in no way evidence a god exists, much less your particular variant.
Report as
So your perspective proves there isn't a god?
Report as
I didn't say that in any way. You are the one implying your subjective idea of beauty somehow is evidence of a god's existence. I merely pointed out that's fallacious.
It is impossible to prove a universal negative anyway. I'm just informing you that your claim is a fallacy.
Report as
It's not a fallacy though. All you have to do is look around and you'll see there's a god this just didn't randomly happen. If you'd do some studying you'd also know that even though awful things do happen god has left it in our hands as to how we deal with these things
Report as
No, it IS a fallacy. It even has a formal name- the Argument from Ignorance or Argument from Personal Incredulity- "I don't get it/I don't believe it, therefore God".
The nature of the world in no way objectively shows the work of ANY god, much less yours. I am a biologist, and the more I study the world the more obvious that there was no designer here and nothing supernatural at work. You might also want to understand that the laws of physics and natural selection aren't actually random. Just because you don't understand the science involved does not mean the answer is magic.
It's always amusing to me when believers claim all wonderful things must be the work of their god, but all horrible things have nothing to do with him. Ah, Special Pleading.
Report as
I do actually believe in natural selection evolution and all that. With that said this just didn't randomly happen. You cannot say without a doubt this was random. There is no proof of that. You can remain closed minded and read everything you can't explain as natural selection. Big Bang or what ever you wish.
Report as
The laws of physics can only deal with what we know or believe or assume to be true. Natural selection has to be random unless the meteor that is claimed to have hit the earth killing the dinosaurs was planned. Therefore you have to believe in a higher power if you believe in your theory of natural selection

For some people today readily believe being conscious of spiritual things, for others though they need something more tangible to explain. Even the scientific world have difficulty ruling out the principles of cause and effect realising that in fact we are actually here. I myself do believe, but not blindly. I have had good explanations from the science of things that has given me strong reason to accept, but like I said earlier not blindly. All things must be explained well by someone who knows better.

For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities?his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God. (Romans 1:20 NLT)================================The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. God has made a home in the heavens for the sun. It bursts forth like a radiant bridegroom after his wedding. It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race. The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end. Nothing can hide from its heat. (Psalms 19:1-6 NLT)

. Actually yes.

Science now states that the plagues of Moses in the bible actually did exist. They have scientific evidence that each happened and in the order stated in the bible. Interesting huh? You can google it lol if you'd like to see for yourself.

Also there is the concept of NDEs. Can everyone have the same "dream" while under the knife? Really? Is it all just a coincidence? Doubtful. Most NDEs have a similar aspect. A bright light, a bridge you name it. These are common incidents too. They are not rare. That means that A) many, many people visit some sort of ethereal "place" when their bodies are not currently functioning at the level we know as living, alive, conscious, whatever you'd like to call it. Their hearts and brains are not responsive defining them as dead. But B) these people return miraculously capable of recalling in vivid detail their journeys to a strange place. They are conscious of events happening in that place and can recall I suggest you look at a book called proof of heaven for more information on this subject. It is a true account of a renowned doctor and scientists nde and how it changed
