So it is pure faith that makes you believe he saved you and you alone. Why would he be so secretive about it and why does he not save the child from being brutally raped and murdered? O I remember we have not the ability to understand gods will? So why make out you know so much but know so little? Point to the beautiful flower as evidence of gods goodness but ignores the nasty little worm that burrows into a young child's brain. Selective beliefs and understanding only undermines your determination to prove your god. Why should god not indicate his existence in real terms. There is more evidence of Robin Hood or King Arthur than Jesus Christ, they are treated as simple myths, with moral values we can all admire. You do not need magical figures to teach you morality or become a better man Fanman. The ethics Christ taught are older than his myth are you honestly telling me you would be evil without biblical education?Fanman wrote:Jklint,
Is it logical to believe in the placebo-effect? it doesn't seem logical to me, to believe that if a placebo is given to someone that has an illness. That the mere thought of being better will make that person better? Evangelistic preachers, preach that very same thing "mind-over-matter" only they call it having faith... If the placebo effect is real and works, then it is something which defies logic, because the person has been given no actual medicine, but gets better.
I don't think the loss of my life would indicate that there is no God. The fact that he saved me once, does not mean that he will save me again. We all have to leave this world sometime and somehow...
