I have often wondered why God would create humans knowing the situation would become some disastrous. I don't pretend to understand or exalt my understanding to judge God.

I saw the thread bump and came in expecting an update that heaven had been officially proven or disproven.

Oh, well, if some brainwashed kid says it's true, I guess that's the end of the argument.

Timetravel has been disproven. I think that's enough absolutism* for one year.

Yeah, I don't really know what that means. So what? Wanna fight about it?

Damn, I figured that naturalism was finally able to disprove supernaturalism. Who figured there would end up being a stalemate between the two.

Dave, did you see (or write) the study about how we are wasting our time looking for life elsewhere in the universe?

Nobody likes to have fun anymore.

Re: Stephen Hawking: "There is no heaven, it's a fairy story"

I've written many posts about how we are likely the only life to speak of. But due to me getting tired of arguing with the incredible argument of "Well we know of 1 planet with life, so just imagine if there were so many other planets...we could extrapolate those numbers and it is obvious" I have decided to embrace the idea that there is even life on the moon. It just happens to be on the dark side so we haven't seen it yet.

kvr read a book on the topic of alien life this one time, it changed his life.

The book said we're it, so he has no time for simplistic and silly ideas formed on a singular basis.

Re: Stephen Hawking: "There is no heaven, it's a fairy story"

And then I realized that if X=1 and you extrapolated to a really big number, it was obvious that there was enough evidence statistically for life all over the place. I mean, I knew that X=1, but once I understood that the numbers were so large that it didn't matter, it was obvious. The numbers are big. You can't fault that logic. I sure won't again.

Re: Stephen Hawking: "There is no heaven, it's a fairy story"

What if heaven is just a lab run by the aliens who originally created us on a visit to this planet millions of years ago? When we die, a small part of the essence of life that they left here in the first place simply returns to them.

BRB, need to call my Hollywood agent. Only Will Smith can put a stop to this dastardly plan.

Not Will Smith but perhaps Charlize Theron?

The verse to end this argument once and for all! Psalm 14:1-3

That's three verses. You should have said Psalm 14:1.

Yeah, we've sold a lot of copies of that book at my bookstore.

Hey, a sale is a sale.

I can't imagine any motive for writing such a book except to spread the truth.

His responses sounds quite rehearsed to me.
