Have you ever had strange inexplicable things happen to you?
Well...i have to go now. I will check back later.
Disgusting. You really are a card. You quite obviously post for mental masturbation, and mocking spiritual people must really get you going.
Yes. But I'm not so delusional as to attribute them to anything but my own mind.
How do you know you're not delusional?
On the contrary, I'm critical because I want to believe as many true things as possible, and not believe any false things. In the same way Houdini was interested in psychic phenomenon, but he ended up debunking them. He was looking for something real.
I try to use logic and reason. I don't rely on faith.
Love isn't "real" but it exists.
You rely on faith everyday, you just don't acknowledge it.
Love is a real emotional state.
I'm quite sure you are confusing the religious term "faith" with the common definition, which means only "tentative trust, subject to revision".
Really, where's the proof? If you've been in love you'll know it's tangible.
It's the same thing, just your faith is exclusively non-God orientated.
No it's not. Faith is absolute and not subject to doubt or revision.
Are you talking about your faith here?
I have none. I might have a trust that the sun will come up tomorrow, but that is based on previous experience. It's possible that aliens will shoot an anti-fusion bomb into the center of the sun, and it won't come up.
So you have developed trust with a star? Do you worship it in the hope it will rise the next day? You rely on faith as much as me you either don't realize it subconsciously or simply want to ignore it consciously, while all along slamming anyone who has faith in God... is that your game?
You haven't explained why you think I have faith. I trust that the star will come up on the horizon based on it's previous behavior for the last 11 billion years or so. So, evidence. My definition of faith is belief in the absence of evidence.
Who do you trust? Trust is useless without faith.
That's just a stimulation of a certain part of the brain. You can do that with a probe or with drugs for that matter.
Your recent posts today do not appear to be responding to the topics or quoted texts - are you drunk or high on something?
I can't see that anything you just said has any bearing on the quoted text or reports anything that I have ever said or implied. It feels like you didn't read what I wrote and have concocted a nonsense and irrelevant response to what you think I might write based on some perverted perception you have created of me. Or are you just simply drunk?
