You cant explain every little wierd story, but its bad reasoning to just say because you cant explain it has to be god, what about just saying you dont know and would need more info to say its something divine.

 

Yeah. Depends on the story though.

Not really, even a convulted natural explaination is more likely then a supernatural one.

 

Quick example: Santa clause. It is way more of a convulted thing to explain all the gaga around santa. Now you could say santa exists and be done. Or you can take the more convulted explaination and be done.

 

Now the convulted one is how we know the santa stuff to be.

 

The one that wouldnt be convulted is the santa is a actual person one.

Its called a example, for a reason. It is way different, but consider both of my posts for a second together.

 

A natural explaination that is convulted(which is all i was trying to say by the santa example) is more likely then a supernatural one. And on miracle stories like the tatoo one you talked about(which sounds like bs on the surface anyway) where you don't have all the info. Assume natural till given good reason otherwise. See this problem i see with almost all supernatural explainations, we dont have every fact. And to me we would have to know everything to even declare a miracle.

You've got to admit, if you had a tattoo that disappeared overnight, you wouldn't be thinking "that's completely natural."

No i would think i am being lied to,by the person telling the story.(natural). If fact a big reason people would eat it up, outside the obvious, is actually why it smells fishy to me. It is a perfect moral lesson story, too perfect one might say.

 

I also would say i don't have all the facts so i cant say if its divine in origin.

 

I also think, doesnt god have more important shit to take care of, yet doesnt take care of.

Because they are deluded. Because of peer pressure. Because they want to believe in the divine. Same shit in any religion.

Not all of them actually lie. For example, i wouldnt say for example that a marian apparition is a lie, i would say that they would be a victim of brain power. I would also say some are speaking from a biased perspective(recalling events in a favorable way though it not actually being the case, untentionally). Also there is a ton of confirmation bias involved. There is no simple all encompassing answer to this, it depends on the story really.

 

But just a spilting hairs point, you committed a logic fallacy called appeal to a consensus. Essentially, truth is not decided by tge amount of people beliving in something.

 

Also what vix said about delusion is true, alot legit belive what there saying. But beliving simething happened and something actually happening are two different things.

I'm just saying, dismissing every single supposedly miraculous testimony that has ever happened and just labeling them as unknown as of yet but definitely not God/demons/supernatural seems very.... something.

Well then why not become a universalist and grant every single miraclous event for every religion?

 

Got to establish some sort of filtering criteria on things like this. Never ever seen a good one for going between different religions ever.

Why do you think supernatural explainations only work for christian miracle claims, yet not other religions?

I don't think that. I've just never heard any convincing stories from other religions.

 

Actually, I don't think I've heard any at all.

I honestly am confused by your persistent fear. I am very sorry you are still scared of such nonsense. But I never saw any of it demonstrated to me.

 

Also, I pretty much think, even if the god of Abraham does exist, and rules everything, and is such a sadistic bastard to wait and let the other shoe drop for most when it's TOO DAMN LATE to change their ways/beliefs, I'd rather burn. I won't bow before such a sadistic, obtuse, cruel god. If he wants us all saved, then he should SAVE US, not make it some fucking maze with the devil running through it. What an asshole.

 

Guess I got too angry too quickly to be cowed by fear - I don't like threats.

I'm confused about it myself.

Yeah. That pretty much sums it up.

I'm angry too. But for me that doesn't override the fear. Both are there.

If there are any that are convincing, I'd like to hear them.

Why do I think that the Christian stories are the only valid ones? I don't. Like I said, they're the only ones I've heard. Ones dealing with Jesus, demons, etc.

Because all religions are the same really, at least imo, different shades of the same stuff. You would be assuming a ton about religions in general to do otherwise. Think about though muslims for example would be like christians in this respect. Its late so i dont really have the time to research one for you. I assume this because only deism as far as religions im aware of says that god doesn't interfere. The rest grant prayers of some sort supposedly and also still are supposedly able to interfere in the world.

If the XIAN god does exist by some inexplicable means, I would refuse to bow down & follow "it" regardless. I would gladly go to hell and burn than serve that piece of shit, and right before I get sent to wherever that is(and if given the chance)I'd spit on the bastard.
