I pick the meteor...a little quicker.


You must really have a horrible opinion of Jesus to choose the meteor. Just hope it doesn't hit you a glancing blow on the spinal chord and leaves you a quadriplegic. One never knows about the trajectories or whether the trajectory is 100% coincindental or not.

All I can say is, just because he's brilliant at one thing, doesn't make him brilliant at another. I think understanding faith, philosophy, religion, etc. takes a completely different mindset than one that understands science, physics, chemistry etc. I also think that this is mostly because of how our culture tries to pit science and religion together, which goes against both science and religion. Those who I know that work in Physics research are very devout in their beliefs, and for them, science only reveals the glory of God's work as opposed to showing them that there is no God.

There's yet another possibility. What if science has already revealed the true identity of "God" yet most atheists and theists aren't willing to study such claims?

The only way there's a god is if you read the yammerings of ancient, primitive, ignorant mankind. He just couldn't handle his developing imagination. The invisible man in the sky gets a lot of credit for doing absolutely nothing. He exists in the mind of man...no other place.

1. Ummm, he's not a man- he's a spirit. He's desccribed as masculine to facilitate spirit-to-human communication.

Numbers 23:19

So I guess that idea is your imagination running away with you. LOL!

You talk like you and the invisible SPIRIT are on a first name basis. LOL!

God and his angels and your soul and the devil and witches and spirits are figments of the imagination of ignorant people from long ago. Take away the brainwashing of gullible infants and small children during each new generation and there would be none of that foolishness. That's the truth.

Yeah right. Are you telling me that you understood Garrett Lisi's theory? Why do I not believe you?
