Im sorry but your body looks over your memories to find out if you have any past experience which could help you escape your 'predicament' not because it loves you

Then you remember that you're dying because your body produced cancer like a dick.

Because 1 cell decided to go full retard and the rest of the cells didn't feel like killing that corrupted cell so it multiplied beyond what it should and killed you.

This explains why creationists think they see angels and heaven when they temporarily die on the operating tables.

Maybe we have this ability so that we CAN see them and experience those things? (they'd still have a significant impact though)   
   
Alternate Example: When we pray, the language processing parts of our brain light up during a brain-scan. Does this mean praying is all in our head too? Or is this just how it was set up to work in the first place?   
   
I believe there's a Scientific explanation for everything, but I don't believe that knowing how something works takes away from the "beauty"/"spirituality" of it. After-all, love is just a series of complex Biochemicals and some Psychology, but does that make it any less beautiful or meaningful?

"Could it be possible, that...."

is never a good substitute for,

"Logic and reason dictate, that....."

What I'm saying is we don't know 100% and shouldn't pretend to. I love Science, but I watch people on this site fall into Scientism all the time. The bottom line of my point is that there's ultimately three ways to look at everything and they're all three just opinions.

1)Science is the answer to "everything" and nothing divine can exist because of the way I view Science and Religion.

2)Science is mostly false (pick and choose) and Religion is the answer to "everything" because of the way I view Science and Religion.

3)Science and Religion are the answers to "everything", and they just work through each other in complex ways, because of the way I view Science and Religion.
User avatar #178 to #166 - mcfluffykins **User deleted account** (12/08/2012) [-]
I just disagree. One is based on calculable facts and the other requires belief in something that goes against all logical thinking. I believe what makes the most logical sense to believe. Religion never wins that battle.

The one fall point religion always has, is they get to make it up as they go along. See, in science when an old theory gets disproved, what do scientists do? They scrap it. They say "We were wrong about this and will never apply it to anything ever again. What happens when religious ideals are proven wrong? It just becomes a metaphor. Religious people say "Oh we must have been wrong, God was really just trying to say this instead..."

Science has proven it impossible for the world to have started from only two people. This should disprove Christianity. If there was no Adam and Eve, then there was no original sin. If there was no original sin, then there was no need for a Jesus Christ, and so on. But no Christians just shrug it off and say, well we must have been wrong about what the Bible was really trying to say there.

This is the illogical thinking that keeps a creationist mind from expanding. It's not about trying to prove something right. It's about already knowing your right and trying to put puzzle pieces together until they could possibly, kinda, maybe, sorta fit together. This way of critical thinking is just too primitive for our modern world.

PS - Do you believe God performs medical miracles in our world today? As in do you believe that God heals the sick through prayer?
User avatar #199 to #178 - englman (12/08/2012) [-]
Don't make the mistake of thinking that it isn't logical just because you don't understand every inner-working of it (saying you do would be arrogant too, and arrogance isn't logical). Statistical likelihood is actually in favor of a God vs every necessary circumstance randomly lining up like it needed to.

As far as Religions/Christianity being metaphoric/interpreted, we all know it is. Science is more "concrete", if you will, but these two facts don't work against each other. We interpret what little we have, and then if Science says that's wrong, we PROBABLY just interpreted it wrong then (assuming what's written is reliable to begin with). OR you could take your view point and say that thinking this way is a "fall point", when really that's opinionated too.

I would like to hear how Science has proven it impossible for us to have started from two people. I doubt parts of the Evolution theory, and I doubt parts of Adam&Eve, so I'm more undecided in this area. However, I don't think it would "cause the downfall of Christianity" if they never existed. We could be called "sinful in nature" without them. Science of Altruism and all that jazz. Then you could say "well God is evil then for making us that way!", is He really though since He gave us a choice through Jesus?

I wouldn't call myself a Creationist or anything. I just try to be a logical Christian.
As far as medical miracles and prayer, I think there's the possibility for divine intervention in medical miracles (tumors disappearing completely over night, etc.). However, I think for the most part, prayer helps us in a different way. We believe it will work, so it boosts our hope which could allow us to feel more peace, which could allow us to heal faster/completely (this may be how it was set up to work). I'm not saying God DOESN'T help us the way we think He does, but I think God does things differently. I just look at alternative possibilities.

I'm not saying one way is illogical and one way is not. I just said that when presented with two possibilities, one should strive to choose the more logical than the other. This is where religion always seemed to fall short with me. I was raised very religious. Southern baptist style. And it never made a lick of sense to me whatsoever.

I would disagree at your point that the two do not work against each other. They do work against each other significantly. The Bible describes creation without the mention of Dinosaurs, DNA, atomic particles, elements... etc. The Bible describes acts that disprove the very laws of physics (Noah's Ark, raising of Jesus and Lazerus from the dead, Jonah and the large fish.. etc). The two are simply not compatible. Saying Religion is synonymous with Science due to a couple of things that could possibly still exist is like saying Religion is synonymous with Pedophilia due to what has happened in the Catholic Religion.

As far as the medical miracles I would ask you, Why doesn't God heal amputees? Why is it that God cures cancer and every other medical issues but he won't heal amputees? Does he have a grudge against that specific group? Just a little something that never sat right with me during my religious days.

In the end all choose what they want to believe anyway because there is no certain way of knowing anything. I would never claim there is 100% proof God doesn't exist because that is just foolish. There are at least 100 things I could name that would immediately make me believe and worship God, it's just none of them have ever happened. I would expect the same thing from Religious people as well. It's just when presented with two viewpoints I will always choose the one that makes the most sense based on what we have.

If you really were interested in the Adam and Eve theory then I'm sure you know how to Google. Here's a start from a Christian though:

Either way.. To each his own. I am not interested in changing your mind and you should not be interested in changing mine. It's nice to be able to logically debate such things without either party pulling the "You're an idiot because 'x'" card, and I'll thank you for that. It's important that we be able to agree to disagree and not hate or kill each other over it. That is what makes this world a beautiful place.

Yeah, it's nice to have a civilized debate:)
Completely agree with you here lol. And thanks for the link, I'll read it in a little bit!

I don't know about you guys but I don't really fear death, I fear what comes after.
#155 to #119 - neelix (12/08/2012) [-]
I fear dying more than death or what comes after. I believe that I'll experience the year 2900 the same as I experienced the year 1900, nothing to fear about that. If there is an afterlife then... owell **** me right :P Dying, though. What if I end up drowning or dying in an accident where I bleed out after an accident that mashed up both my legs and all I can do is lie there knowing my fate during a time of excruciating agony and gore - that ****** scary. In bed while sleeping would be aight :D

Good luck scientifically proving that your body does this because it loves you and not from a hormonal reaction.   
Holy 						****					 you are stupid.

A typical hurricane produces the energy equivalent of 8,000 one megaton bombs.
The average person accidentally eats 430 bugs each year of their life.

There are plenty of "scientifically proven facts" yet people still don horse helmets and bounce around during hurricane warnings. I just don't enjoy non-funny posts being placed on funnyjunk.

It's actually a genuine hypothesis proposed by Dr. Rick Strassman, but there has not been enough reliable data to confirm it. As of now, it only remains a hypothesis.
