we are going in circles here. you are getting frustrated because we are talking about different points and what each of us is saying is being taken out of context.

science is good at disproving so you say. so i am waiting until science can 100% disprove that a god does not exist. IF the time comes, then i'll jump ship. but until then, you live your life i'll live mine.

my answers to those questions you ask gimped are based on ideas that you do not accept, and as such, it would be pointless for me to even attempt them since you will just shake your head and get frustrated even more

**UFO, science is all about disecting everything and trying to disprove itself. Whether you like it or not, your belief in god is lumped in with scientific dissection. Everything in this universe is lumped into science. It is one of those regions that we can not as easily prove as we can disprove (God is very easily disproved with rational, insightful, realistic, physical, mental, and emotional evidence). All of religion does not question itself whatsoever with any amount of credibility. If their arguement includes "I belief it so it must be true" is all they can come up with, then there isn't a debate on the issue.

I am by no means a scientist, but if you have no understanding of scientific theory and how it works then I suggest you stop trying to rationalize god and religion on a public forum like this.

yes science is all about dissecting. with regards to what we spoke about earlier about man's egotistical nature. why is it that we believe we can scientifically figure out how everything works? what is our drive to accomplish this? my understanding about the scientific theory is clear enough, and that is what leads me to believe in religion. many things scientific are theorized, and many theories are just that; based on assumptions that were based on other assumptions. the odds of all the necessary steps involved in evolution from the early prokaryote to the modern multi-cell complexes is so staggering, so unbelievable, that i dont understand how accepting those odds would be easier than accepting a god.

theories are ideas that may or may not be the way. schools teach it as if there is no way around it. if this were the case, why is it still a theory then? why is the theory of evolution a theory of evolution and not the principle of evolution?

im not helping you prove your point in anyway, if that's what you think, you have taken what i said out of context. everything is not black and white, you have to read the Bible for yourself, and take what's important out of it. much like Shakespearean literature, if you just read the words, it doesnt make sense. you are taking it word for word, and its not making sense to you. if creation didnt happen, you wouldnt be here, nor would i, and we wouldnt be having this conversation. you cant make something out of nothing (as explained by the theory of conservation of energy and mass).

i guess in the end, i take a different approach as you. until science disproves without a doubt that there is no god of any kind, i'll still believe in my God. for you gimped, you will not believe until science proves that a god exists.

this discussion is getting really in depth and further involved than i have the energy to get into right now, but just one thing to rebutt before i sleep:

"Do you believe in creation - Adam and Eve as our parents? Do you believe that this happened 6000 years ago? It was written in this bible you speak of so highly, so it must be true like the rest of the stories you say are. If the earth is only 6000 years old, then who were the dinosaurs? What to do with radio-carbon dating and the age of rocks? YOUR THEORY SEEMS TO BE FLAWED. How about the apocalypse? When do we ride that wave?"

obviously the world isnt 6000 years old. only a fool would believe so. scientific evidence PROVES (not theorizes) contrary. but the point is that everything is all relative (speaking of age and time here in particular). ppl in the bible lived over 500 yrs, how feasible is that especially without the aid of modern medecine? everything is not in black and white, you take from the Bible what you will, i for one do not believe that everyword should be disected to the letter. there are important lessons to be learned, lessons which do not require such clearcut definitions.

should i see a doc?

pneumonia is infection of the lungs. your alveoli become blocked with mucus and pus which causes breathing difficulties, thus the coughing up of green slime. the red strings is probably blood from lungs or throat from excess caughing

It's not exactly hard, but if you fuck up once, you're screwed. There will be tons and tons of em just waiting to get mounted. So it takes time. Not to mention wax jobs, tunes, and other things like ice skate sharpenings in between. It can get pretty busy. He's easrning all that money he gets, and probably deeserves more.

hehe, i've messed up my share of ski mounts back in the day ;) the stuff we do really isnt hard, but its just tedious. ie. scraping wax off 10 sets of skis/boards. omg

you should tell my manager that we techies dont make enough money. guys on sales today were pulling in avg like 15-20/hr. i make the same as a burger flippin grommit at the local mcdix :(

dude, pneumonia is not fun.

i have it about 5 yrs ago. started out as a common cold, then got worse. stayed home for the weekend, went back to school on tuesday. felt like shit, then mom drove me to the doctor's after school then they directed me straight to the hospital. what followed was 4 days in the intensive care unit and then another 3 days in regular hospital for recovery. the follow up visit to the doc's revealed that had i not gone to the hospital that afternoon, i would've been a dead man.

not something to joke about man

based on the odds that humans evolved from prokaryotic bacteria years and years ago which evolved from who knows what and just happened to be created out of nothing, i would be 100% sure that elephants will one day fly as well. its only the natural course of evolution, is it not?

gimped, you too subject yourself to emotion and faith as well, only in the area of science as opposed to religion. you say that relying on faith instead of medicine is egotistical. how about man thinking that we can cure any and everything? if we cure even the weakest, then the whole 'survival of the fittest notion' which the theory of evolution is thrown entirely out of whack. if you see things on such a scientific point of view, how can you accept this? what kind of a life is it when somebody is alive, but lives on only as a vegetable? what kind of a life is it if a person maintains a heartbeat and brain activity, but suffers through immense amounts of pain suffering through an experimental surgical procedure? as you said yourself, absolute certainty will always ellude us. so there always has to be a certain measure of belief and faith in what one believes makes the most sense to oneself.

if i am to be labelled as 'weak' for being religious, than so be it. although there is no scientific evidence to speak of when it comes to eternal life, that is something that you will just have to rely on with one's faith (i am sure that fact would feed further disagreements). is the notion of faith in something you cannot see or explain so hard to fathom? our belief in an afterlife does not alter the way you live, why do you have such an opposition to what we choose to believe?

religion to me, may be seen by others as a comfort zone. i have no problems being here, and dont see why i should. it also gives me strength and reassurance knowing that i am looked after by a higher being, and that everything for me has been planned out already. is my life better for it? absolutely. i would have to disagree with gimped's remarks that this is due to 'confusion, desperation, and fear of the unknowing'. and no, i can't accept the fact that god is an invention of man's large brains. so let the mockery fly :P
