Modern, Educated People should not believe in Virgin Births or Resurrections

Witches cannot cast spells,
ghosts cannot impregnate virgins,
and dead people cannot walk out of their tombs to eat broiled fish.


DictionarySuperstition

Superstition is the belief in supernatural causality—that one event causes another without any natural process linking the two events—such as astrology, religion, omens, witchcraft, prophecies, etc., that contradicts natural science.

There is no such thing as a supernatural “miracle”…unless it occurs in your religion. 

Let’s call it for what it really is:  magic.

Magic is not real.

  1. I dunno, I'd say a universe exploding into being from nothing, without nothing and without cause, reason or effect is a supernatural miracle.

  2. I am not insisting anything, science has said the universe HAS A BEGINNING they can see where it started. This is science saying this, not me. You're beef is with science Gary.

  3. So which faith based belief system of science do you adhere to? Whichever it is, let me see if I understand this science stuff now. For decades scientists and science have ridiculed Christians for claiming God had no beginning yet now it is science and enlightment for them to say the universe had no beginning… Logic & Reason!

  4. Well if there is a creator then who are you to say it is preposterous for Him to act within or do anything to it's creation? Assume there IS a creator, give me a reason why that creator cannot interact however it desires within it's own creation.

  5. Give me a reason why Santa Claus cannot exist, live in a house with elves at the North Pole, and fly in a sled pulled by reindeer in the night sky?

    Allowing for the supernatural, anything is possible, Fankie. But is there enough evidence for the claim so that we should all believe it as fact, and, pattern our lives accordingly?

    I said: Get a plane, fly to the north pole and investigate it.

    I said: How is the claim that the universe A) Came from nothing, or B) Has always existed, without cause and without reason any less supernatural than God exists and has no beginning? The ONLY difference is that if science likes something they don't refer to it as supernatural, if they don't like something then it is supernatural.

  7. Science (as of today) has no answer for the origin of the universe. But instead of inventing a superstition to explain it, scientists simply say, “We don't know, but we will keep working on it.”

  8. So then why is the origin of the universe taught in schools as fact? The Big Bang, which indecently is now being reconsidered as The Big Poop. Oh well, let's move on to our new scientific fact, the universe has always been! Yes, this is a scientific FACT (this week).

  9. Wrong, Fran. Science postulates THEORIES regarding the origin of the universe. No scientist I know has ever said that the Big Bang was a fact or that the universe being eternal is a fact.

  10. Frannie: You are conflating the teaching of evolution in public schools with the teaching of the origin of the universe. The theory of Evolution says NOTHING about the origin of the universe. It only describes the process of natural selection among living organisms on earth.

  11. Garitrude, are you saying evolution does not include the universe or space? NASA would not agree with you. Not that it matters what they think because they say the universe “creates” stuff. Well if something comes into existence because of an action then tat is an evolutionary process. How does the science of Gary separate the beginning of or eternal existence of the universe from the evolutionary process? If the universe exploded into being then that is a part of evolution, if it eternally existed and created life or the potential for life then that happened due to evolutionary progress. How do yo ignore this? Evolution does not only exist on earth, it exists within the entire universe.
