    and in my opinion the fact that you exist is proof that god exists.. and it also proves that God has a fine sense of humor.

    do you want to know what is really pointless.

    discussing the concept of God with anyone that has a bias about his existance or non existance.. it truly is an exercise in futility.

    Uhm yeah, I think I am with you on this one. The Sun comes up due to gravity? Well to be truthful, I think it has been right in the same spot for several billion years. Maybe slighty moving with the wobble affect.

    Weebles wobble but they don't fall down!

    Course that don't count exploding inside out.

    Indeed, why is there something rather than nothing? We don't know and we never will know the answer to that question. There are limits to our comprehension. That's not a cop out. It's just a fact. God cannot be proved or disproved but I think it's perfectly reasonable to believe that existence has an ultimate foundation.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    Change the meaning of God? What does that mean? As far as verifiability is concerned, logical positivism is no longer taken seriously as a theory of knowledge.

    The point of Pascal's Wager is not that to err on the suide of caution but that agnosticism is not a real position. You are in the game. You must wager. You believe or you do not believe. I don't know= no.

    You do not know that your family loves you or that the sun will come up tomorrow. Human beings are actually capable of knowing much at all.

    That's an easy question for me. He called me and I have seen the afterlife.
