Whatever. You seem amazingly capable of judging me from a few postings. I'm actually quite a good scientist, published many articles, well funded, and teach science to many students.

Your last line about many great scientist concluding there MUST be a god is just BS. Can science prove there is no god? No it can't, but also can't prove its existence. It's not question that science is equiped to answer.

To recap: all I was trying to say is if you think god is constantly or often changing the rules then there's not much point in the science of trying to figure without the rules. But, if God made the rules and then doesn't change them, then I think you can reasonably believe in god and be a good scientist. I think that's a pretty reasonable statement, but apparently not to this crowd.

Finally. Well put. I don't agree with it in total, but I believe you do. Progress.

Don't be so quick to worry about judgment. Everyone makes judgments, all the time, and I had this entire thread(not much) to work with. I notice you don't take issue with a single thing I said.

I was trying to agree with this part.

I just believe God can break the rules, kinda like the characters in The Matrix. Since my belief is that He spoke creation into existence, I believe He can do what He will. That said, I don't think that He would readily violate the laws of nature without great reason.

The way I see it, we are simply straining to understand more and more of how it works. Its complexity and beauty are vast, and I have a curiosity to understand it. I don't guess it matters how it got here.

Many who have searched for the answers have eventually concluded that only a single all-powerful creator could have set up what we now study.

Others have decided it was simply "is" whatever it is, and that the universe arrived at this point based on random forces of attraction, reactions, and coincidences.

The creator idea makes more sense to me.

I learned from this thread that we are starting to get more and more people actively, aggressively discussing against Christ. That must mean the Christians of this forum must really be striking a nerve with Satan and he his trying his best to stop it.

Love it. :)

There aren't more people doing anything. They are simply different names for the same people. If you are struggling for allies, it is handy to be your own.

Satan doesn't have to work that hard to keep anti-christians that way.

His real work is getting the saved to walk away from their faith. Cutting the flock so to speak.

It's pretty hilarious that my brief presence has caused a search for explanations and that so far the answers are either 1) Satan is at work or 2) I'm an impostor. You can believe in God, but it's too much to believe that I exist.

Do you think Satan could have succeed in this thread then?

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Titus+3:9-11&version=NIV
Titus 3:9But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. 10Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. 11You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.
Also, I think you referred to this scripture earlier in the thread. Two birds, one stone. :)

I think you and Dogman are trolling each other. Which is really pretty funny.

I'll leave the two of you to it.

Wait, you mean people are being dishonest in their discussions here and lying about who they are? :eek:

Brother, I know all to well that we probably have just one or two people creating all of these fake accounts.

Because you see it now doesn't mean it wasn't as heavily present before. Often times it comes down to what we permit or let go versus what we cannot abide.

Do you think differently than GoPokes82?
Do you mean pokaholic? Because clearly I don't think like GoPokes82. And just because you all sound the same to me I'm not making crazy conspiracy theories about you all being one person. I have abundant daily evidence that many people think like you do. It surprises me that you don't realize that many people also disagree with you.

Are you a puppet of Satan?
No, because no such thing exists.

Because it's unbelievable that people think differently than you and if they do they're the puppets of the devil.
Not at all.

What sends the flags up for people is when numerous accounts appear in short order all posting a very narrow purpose. That doesn't indicate that any given account is less than honest, but it puts all new accounts posting in that particular light under a fairly small demographic tarp.
