it caught a virus from the website you linked to.    
other people aparently have weaker virus detection software.    
that is it. I will let others decide upon whether they will click it or not on their own.

all these things seem to me to be a matter of interpretation. e.g., "He stretches out the north over empty space; [He] hangs the earth on nothing." could be said equally to support earth floating through space, or the idea that if you reach the edge of the earth, you fall off, or the theory of a flat disc earth with the north as the centre and the south as the circumfrance ("He stretches out the north over empty space"). these guys are just filling in the blanks with scientific knowledge that we have already, which while intuitive, is a false logic. besides which, a book written at a time and place that was smarter than people tend to think (the middle eastern and Mediterranean countries were fairly advanced even thousands of years ago), as well as saying so much that it's virtually impossible to have NOTHING right in it, is still hardly gonna be a good source of information now. and none of this even matters, because just cos the guys who wrote it weren't wrong about everything, doesn't mean this is evidence for the existance of god. even if the bible said "E=mc^2" outright, it would only be a reflection of the knowledge of humans at the time it was written. the only way you could consider it evidence of god is by presuming it was god who wrote the book, which sends us into a circular logic of "god exists, because a book has scientific knowledge, which we know god wrote because god exists, because a book has scientific knowledge," etc.
TL;DR: so what? not convinced.

if you don't realize my purpose of putting that link there was to start a conversation like these ones, where i change somebody's mind on Christianity.
gave you a shot is just a metaphor for i tried to explain it as best as i could to you, and i realize many people will not believe in Christianity as it says in the bible
.(Matthew 7:13)"You can enter God's Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The highway to hell is broad, and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way.
a seed i planted a seed in you ( lets say god is the seed)
a seed will try to find what it needs to satisfy it, we can all find satisfaction in the lord.

ummm ok...this is gonna be fun.
jobs 26:7 talks about the stars (universe) stretching not expanding.
genesis 6:15 descibes how the boat should be built but the size is still too small for each pair of animals, their food, their fecies, and it was covered in pitch making not only water tight, but air tight as well and even if the window was open the entire time there would be too little oxigen for anything to survive, that and since the water covered the tallest mountain everything would freeze to death besides the artic animals...those would suffocate.
leviticus 15:13 hygiene is obviously what this discusses. but hygiene is a natural aspect. all animals including us practice this. so this passage is quite useless since it was obviously done before it even existed.
this link you provided seems to be nothing more than a bunch of false science that people try to make to convince everyone else that their holy book is magical. people did the same thing with the quarn...in the end...it was still all ********.

as i said. job 26:7 says the universe stretches and the earth floats. both are false. the universe expands and the earth falls in its rotation.
reading all of these things they are nothing more than changed context to make fake assumptions that the bible is magical and predicts things. many of these are true but morly seem like guesses that would eventually happen. this has been seen in the quaran. in fact ITS list is 3 times the size of this one with the same ********. altered meanings on certain passages to create a false idea of magic. this website is just the same as the rest. fake science and points to try to make it seem "divinely" inspired. its weak at best.

Imagine you take a glass of sea water. You declare that in this water there is "a strange white powder", "an air which burns, "life air", trumpet, two watermelons, 60 fish, and the entire French Foreign Legion. The fact that you were vaguely correct about some of the details is not an effective argument.

yes there are an infinite amount of planets it seems, but you seem to miss two key factors.

evolution- if we evolved why are we so much different than other animals in our instincts, why do we feel love, guilt, hatred, jealousy, desire. i don't know of any animal that has more than 2 or 3 of these traits, why are so much different?

what is the chance of humanity as a whole becoming from some one celled organism, it could just as easy be a puddle of skin, that turns air and water into food.

One of the easiest ways of explaning why we all come from the same spicies is by blood.

Good question.

Frankly neither you, I, or anyone is able to answer that question. Perhaps it's just our perspective, we know that other primates, dolphins, and a great deal of other mammals have highly advanced social mechanics. Perhaps we are simply the most evolved in that field?

As for your second point that's easier to explain. Evolution relies on the concept that the stuff that isn't very good doesn't last very long (99% of all species ever evolved are now extinct).

As a counter point: if we were designed then why are we so inefficient? What designer has people talk, eat, drink, and breathe through to same tube, ensuring some poor sod will choke to death as he tries to talk and eat at the same time.I don't think that just because we don't know the answers doesn't mean we should will the gaps with unverifiable guesswork.

That was meant to be a comical flaw as opposed to a genuine argument. I know I won't persuade you to my beliefs and vice versa. I suggest we just accept and find some pictures of cats that look like German dictators and generally enjoy the 72 years we get on average before we die. If your right maybe we get to live in a golden city after that but either way I intend to enjoy this life while it lasts.

Good day to you.

But what do you have to say about the comment i made earlier? Can you disagree on religion tearing the world apart?;



Sometimes I get sad when I think off how much more pleasant the world would be without religion, if we could just imagine all the people living for today. We could easly solve all the problems of the world right now, if it were not for religion that set us apart. Im not talking about christianty, im talking about religion in general. If it were not for islam there probbably woulda been no need to go into afganisthan (and soon iran). If it were not for christianty we would not be sent back 400 years because of the dark ages of christianity in the middleage. If it were not for religion we would have a better world right now, even though its possible to obtain world peace with all theese religions the religions really make it alot harder and alot more dangerous.



TL;DR : W/O Religion we could solve all the international problems of the world(hunger, energy, war, enviorment etc.)

Religion is the brick wall standing in the way between western and middle-eastern co-operation for peace in the middle-east. This is what im trying to say, that christian people try to convert islamic people while trying to help them.

This is true, the religion itself is not a problem, but the ones who try to force it down everybody elses throath are. Im not attacking christianity , im attacking christians. This quote; www.zazzle.co.uk/gandhi_on_christians_postcard-239013302980986167
sums up what you are trying to say.

As you say, Christianity tries to fight all the problems i mentioned, but the thing is... that for some the fact that christians come to their home an try to advice them what to do, might feel like that the christians are making fun of their religion and culture. If the ones who came to tell them what to do were not religious at all, but learnt doctors, professors and genulgily just wanting the best for the people( and not try to convert them while teaching them to take care of themselves) , that kind of help would be easier to accept I think.



TL;DR? Christianity have done good at many problems, but they have created new ones too. Its easier to accept help from a doctor that teaches them about things like how to make easy medicine, treat wounds and avoid STD's, than a priest that tries to convert them from their religion that they have lived with for ages.

So you are saying that humans cannot love without religion?... (in a nutshell)

And how can you be sure that your religion is true? How is that possible? Sicence is true, 1+1 = 2. 2+2=4, and so on. I would gladly belive any religion that can prove that their belif is the real deal, if God or whatever might or might not be out there would give a real sign(not a toast that looks like a Saint), I would belive it...

But everything else people have called signs might be dumb conquincidences.

Dont come at me with something like ; God works in mysterious ways, because thats just beeing bold and not trying to actually think.

It might have the answers to the world problems indeed, but the thing is that we have multiple religions, and theese religions do not co-operate. This is the barrier i've been talking about. If we only had one religion in this world, there would be no communication errors as a result of religious disagreements, which is now the main problem with countries in the middle-east.



Lets say that there would be no religion, would there then be communication errors as a result of religious disagreements? Nah, I tought not. If there was no religion the communication would be easier, and we would be able to solve the worlds problems faster than by first trying to convert everyone to christianty then start praying for something to happen instead of trying to fix things with sience.



TL;DR? idc, read again.

That's be nice but I don't think the real problem is religion. It's just an excuse. I defer to the Wisdom of Christopher Brookmyre speaking through the medium of his character Angelique de Xavia.

"Human experience taught that when people wanted to look tough, they picked on easy targets. A short-arsed megalomaniac picked Jews. A Lilley-livered political mediocrity picked single mothers. A deludedly ambitious cardinal picked gays. A bloated Ugandan dictator picked Asians..."

Bottom line: people have and always will be dicks to one another. We have football violence in this country for christ sake! Islam for instance was set up so that people would be nice to one another regardless of culture or religion, it evens says in the Quar'an not to fight over that stuff, until some warmongering prick with some naive decided he didn't like some other people and used some obscure sub-text to say "kill non-believers"

Tl;DR? Religion isn't the root of the problem just a treatment gone wrong.

Religion is not the problem, religion is one of the many things that makes co-operation harder, because it creates barriers between people. I agree on that humans beliving in higer powers and that if they are kind to eachother they get eternal life aint a problem at all, the problem is that they stand between the people who can change the real problems and the problems.



TL;DR agreed on religion not beein problem, but its a brick wall with a few tiny holes in it standing before us and real co-operation for world-peace.
