Well, it all really boils down to whether or not Jesus Christ was a liar, doesn't it. The challenge goes out to prove he was. His miracles were well known and not disputed by the religious establishment - they feared him for it. So, if he was who he said he was, then God is quite real.

Again, everything, in its complexity, is unfriggin believable. And I don't think all that exists around us and in the universe is some random, cosmic accident. In the end, as I can't prove God exists, noone can prove he doesn't.

I don't agree. I would say it boils down to what was actually published in what is today's Bible and how accurate it is.

The answer to which I have no idea

you're right dimbee.

According to biblical scholars none of the books of the Bible are written by eyewitness' there is much evidence to back that up (read a book on it). its seem very likely that the stories just became more and more fabricated as they were passed from person to person. If you look at the 4 gospels they are quite different not just the conflicting details but the messages of the gospels as well. John which is thought to be the last one written is all about Jesus being God. looking back at some of the oldest manuscripts John is the only of the Gospels that really claims Jesus is God.

so guys, i know this guy dave from ohio.

he was at this beach once, and the tide had gone out, leaving all these starfish in the sand.

he saw a figure in the distance bending over and picking them up, then throwing them into the ocean.

when dave got closer, he asked the man what he was doing.

the man said, "if the son comes up, it'll fry these guys" and threw one back into the ocean.

dave said, "there are millions of these all over the world. how can you make a difference?"

the man smiled, lifted one, wound up, and sodomized dave from ohio for hours with a star fish. every orifice. twice.

I saw God in my waffles, he has to be real!!

Why would you believe what the Bible said when it was written by man? How the hell do they know how the world began? There is absolutely no evidence for God's existence. How come all of that amazing stuff that happened in the Bible has never occurred again? How come people can't live in fishes anymore, or why can't anyone resurrect themselves? Im gonna get raped by religious people but I don't really care.

healed the sick, raised the dead, persecuted and crucified for claiming to be the messiah, then resurrected. apollonius of tyana and a few dozen other "messiahs" of the time. it's not a unique story.

the only difference is there is evidence that apollonius ever existed.

are you implying there's no existence jesus ever lived?

if not, i apologize for misreading.

if so, you may want to rethink that position.
