Proposal to Sandy: Does God exist?

Not open for further replies.
So why not have countless gods unicorns or anything else that takes your fancy ?

That is a possibility...if you like. But I strongly suspect that by defination God must be greater than anything you or I could possibly understand. God would, by definition be greater than the universe. God would know all the mysteries of the universe and beyound the universe. I have a hard enough time just understanding my small piece of the universe.

Sorry, I'm not debating anyone. Everytime I even say the words "God" or "Jesus Christ" I get warnings. Thanks, but no thanks.
Serious? That’s not very fair.
Serious as a heart attack. I got a whole list of infractions, warnings etc for answering questions. :rolleyes: I learned my lesson: stay out of the religion forum.
So much for equal debate.
Yeah, I quit some time ago. I didn't even debate. I just gave my opinion. Got threatened with banning once for "preaching" by answering someone's question with Biblical answers.
sandy: You ought to know that moderation of Formal Debates is much less strict than in other forums. The rules of a Formal Debate are agreed by the participants in advance. In a debate on religion, if the participants think preaching is just fine, then certainly no moderation action will be taken to prevent it.
nah she is gets real preachy which pisses people off
And she still doesn't debate....
Wow, it looks like gutsy conservatives like Sandy are actually pretty chicken at formal debates.
Nope. Gutsy CCR Sandy is staying out of religious arguments so she doesn't get banned.
No excuses:
Nope. Not doing it. Not that stupid. ;)
And we appreciate her great fortitude in that endeavor! :)
Lol, you remind me so much of Anne Coulter, I think you might be her! Her likeness does resemble Christy Brinkley.
I think you really have to admire Sandy's spirit, even if you disagree with her.
Yeah, she is very confident.
It is a formal debate against one other person. No one is going to ban you. All comments from non-participants will be deleted so you would not even have to reply to them. Go on Sandy.. You have nothing to fear of being banned. No one will flame you in the debate (again, all non-participant posts will be deleted). All you need to do is be able to back up your argument.
That's what she's afraid of..
Except when the revolution comes she will be killed first. Seriously, what's her point of inciting hatred and trying unsuccessfully making a point? Smart rich people keep it to themselves instead of playing with the fire and rub in their class advantages...
Someone actually filed a complaint with the moderators about this thread, saying, "There's too much..." of something. This software is a little primitive so I couldn't figure out "too much" of what?

But what there is too much of is TAUNTING SANDY. You have invited her to participate in this formal debate and she has declined. There is nothing wrong with that. You may not like it, but it is within her right and it is not a violation of the rules.

You have then gone on to try to goad her into participating, and you have even made sophomoric attempts to analyze her reasons for declining. She has responded politely in every case, which makes her behavior better than yours.

It is not easy for a person to participate in a formal debate about their religion. Religion, by definition, is irrational, since it is a collection of archetypes: instinctive, primitive beliefs that are preprogrammed into our synapses by evolution. You all insist that Sandy will be safe from criticism in this formal debate but you conveniently ignore the rule that a formal debate must be conducted with scrupulous logic--much more scrupulous than on the other SciForums boards. The first time Sandy says something illogical, e.g. "supporting" her hypothesis with a quote from the Bible, you will be all over her like a pack of stoats.

Please desist immediately from this campaign of trying to goad Sandy into participating. You have asked, she has declined, you have asked if she's sure, she has insisted that she is sure. IT IS OVER.

Any further posts along this line are TROLLING and WARNINGS will be issued. Frankly, some of the ones I've seen come pretty close to personal insults too. Wouldn't it be ironic if some of you guys got nailed for rule violations instead of Sandy?

LET IT GO. If the whole purpose of starting this thread was to cajole Sandy into entering enemy territory so you could rip her apart with your superior reasoning skills, you have failed to accomplish it. You might as well close the thread in that case.
Well, does he? Let's debate.
oh im sorry have i got to behave?
the entire thread shows the ignorance and lack of abiluty at conceptualisation by t starter.

lets debate the exsistence of god
oh puh leeeeeeez

you cannot comprehend the nature of god
it lies outside of your comprehension
At best you can say you are agnostic. But if you did a T account listing all the reasons/proof for God there would be more than for claims against.

I tried to find Him on the Christian cross, but He
was not there; I went to the Temple of the
Hindus and to the old pagodas, but I could not
find a trace of Him anywhere.

I searched on the mountains and in the valleys
but neither in the heights nor in the depths was I
able to find Him. I went to the Ka'bah in Mecca,
but He was not there either.

I questioned the scholars and philosophers but
He was beyond their understanding.

I then looked into my heart and it was there
where He dwelled that I saw Him; He was
nowhere else to be found.

Science and Faith

Once Science said to Faith:

"My eye can see all that is in this world;
The Entire world is within my net.
I am only concerned with material things,
What have I to do with spiritual matters?
I can strike a thousand melodies,
And openly proclaim all the secrets that I learn."

Faith said:

"With your magic even the waves in the sea are set ablaze,
You can pollute the atmosphere with foul, poisonous gases.
When you associated with me, you were light,
When you broke off from me, your light became fire.
You were of Divine origin,
But you have been caught in the clutches of Shaytan.
Come, make this wasteland a garden once again.
Borrow from me a little of my ecstasy,
And in the world set up a paradise.
From the day of creation we have been associates,
We are the low and high tunes of the same melody."

Give it a rest because you are just boring.
I guess people sorta do have an obsession with sandy.
I understand, but we're scientists here and we're supposed to know how to handle problems scientifically. If you think someone is being foolish (or whatever) the way to demonstrate the superiority of your own system of discourse is NOT to be foolish yourself! Dispute her premises, identify flaws in her reasoning, challenge her evidence, discredit her sources... call the whole thing an extraordinary assertion and demand extraordinary substantiation if it's serious enough. Dissect an entire argument and show that the scientific method has been violated or even flouted.

But don't get personal! Okay?
btw, whats a stoat ? and where are they found?.
The stoat is a species of weasel, Mustela erminea, a member of the mustelid family of carnivores which also includes the mink, otters, ferrets, badgers, polecats, the wolverine, martens, the tayra and the fisher. Stoats are found in almost all of the artic, subarctic, and colder northern temperate regions of the continents of the Northern Hemisphere, and were very recently introduced to New Zealand where they have wrought havoc on the ecosystem. (An ill-advised attempt to solve the ecological problem caused by the equally foolish introduction of rabbits.)

Stoats have lovely brown fur which molts and is replaced by a snowy white pelt in the winter. During that season they are known as ermines and are hunted for their hide.

In the USA and Canada the stoat is usually called the short-tailed weasel.
I would be curious to see sandy debating. I've never seen her use logic and reason... :scratchin:

***Lock this thread already*** Sandy did say no and so this thread is no longer of use.....the end.
And I've never seen you use kindness or consideration when addressing me so I will not be debating you or anyone else.
Yeah.... I know I can be an asshole when talking with people like you...

Meh... I'm not perfect. Only God is... :shrug:
