Ok. Where is the evidence of this power source? Scientific evidence, please. Probably because a lot of people are lazy. Yes, you give me a lot of answers, but what evidence are they based on? It's a debate forum, so of course I'm trying to refute your answers. So far, though, I haven't done very much refuting - I've just been questioning your claims. If you don't have any evidence, your claim doesn't have to be refuted - it's baseless. I 100% agree on the effects of serotonin...but how exactly is that proof of anything? All you said is that when the pleasant effects of over-eating wear off, reality comes crashing back down. Unless I'm misunderstanding you? My guess would be that you used your own mind to think of the answer? The same way that I did? Your heart is literally just a biological machine. All it does is pump blood. That's why people can survive when a machine pumps their blood for them, or if they get a heart transplant, etc. Of course I haven't provided evidence on any of your claims! All I'm doing is questioning them! I've said this before, but you're either not understanding, or glossing over it. What sort of evidence are you asking of me for questions? That is absolutely incorrect. Why on Earth would knowing how something works mean 100% mastery over it? As an example, we know why the moon rotates around the Earth, but that doesn't mean that we can stop its rotation. You explained the concept well enough, I agree that you understand how it works. Yet if science didn't tell you how it works, what did? I don't understand what you mean by this. Sorry, but God placed a barrier where? No, I agree that you've answered all of my questions, but having an answer doesn't guarantee that it's the right answer. Again, all I've done is question your responses. I promise you, and everybody else, that I'm not trying to mislead anybody intentionally. Personally, I'm not very good at lying to myself, so if I thought that God did exist, I would embrace him fully. I appreciate your posting here, of course, but I'm not yet convinced by your responses. All right, fair enough. I understand what you're saying, I think. I don't think I'm being influenced by the devil, but then again, if I was, I'm guessing I wouldn't know, right? I promise you that I'm not angry at all. There aren't many things that make me angry, apart from people slurping their coffee. I'm glad to hear that, and I assume you didn't mean that condescendingly. Okay, fair enough. I have posted in this thread a lot, but I can't remember ever saying that any of your claims were incorrect without backing it up with evidence. If I did so, can you link it? I'll try to explain to the best of my ability. All right. If I have ever flat-out claimed that you're wrong without any evidence, I'll retract that. Evidence is important to me. Fair enough, I apologize. Maybe there was a misunderstanding, but you had said previously: "scientists have confirmed that human beings radiate light, where does the light come from? the absorption of the sun? No that's incorrect because it has to be internal, the light comes from your essence in meaning the soul." I suppose that I was trying to clarify that we don't radiate light (since light is only a tiny part of the electromagnetic spectrum), we radiate blackbody radiation, like every other object in the universe with a non-zero temperature. So ultimately, I was trying to argue against your point that we radiate because we have a soul - we radiate because of our temperature. I'm glad. I try not to let my emotions get the better of me, but if I do, please let me know. Well, maybe. What do you think about two atheists having a happy, successful relationship? That's definitely true. I'm a white European guy so I haven't experienced any of that sort of hate first-hand, but it's absolutely abhorrent. That's a fair point, but I don't understand why a loving God would make animals have the capacity to suffer. For example, if a lion kills a gazelle in Africa, that gazelle suffers tremendously. Why? What benefit does that give me? Well, in the post I was replying to, you said this: "Yet we share no common ground with chimps, except desires and the hair strands, the DNA match is from the hair, as it is the closest to the human, and that is where the misconception stems that we have evolved or adapted from apes, which is completely not true, since to evolve or adapt, takes growth or consciousness, to see reasoning, yet they don't have this, they have there common emotions and that is what they judge off." But putting that aside, my worldview would agree with yours, but for different reasons. In my worldview, we share similarities with all animals because we ARE animals. Humans 10-15 meters long? I haven't heard of this before. Do you have a credible source on that? I'm sorry. I only post here a few times a week, and the thread is a bit long, and truly, I do have a poor memory (recovering alcoholic). I agree that it looks fishy, absolutely, but I honestly don't remember your original claims. That's fair enough. I'll scroll through the thread for your original post. Ah, that I agree with. What I was asking, though, was in response to this particular part of your claim: "their is a substance trying to change the brain pattern, hence why the heart is trying to restore balance" It seemed like you said that the heart was trying to restore balance to, presumably, the brain, to combat the effects of the substance. That's what I was asking how you knew that the heart was trying to restore balance. Well, not necessarily. Somebody with a healthy heart can still die of a stroke, cancer, etc. But that's more of a side point. Interesting. What evidence is there for this? Because again, there's bound to be some secret government agency that would pay millions/billions for its agents to be able to withstand torture. But you said: "I have provided you with so much evidence, it is you who has nothing to show for it, you will and can not win, so your trying to turn it back on me, it won't work, you will look like a fool, I already know the outcome of this argument, Good luck though I applaud you for trying." Do you have evidence or not? All knowledge is from scriptures? Okay, that is interesting, to be sure. May I ask what parts of scripture speak about atomic fission, Keynesian economics, the internet, artificial intelligence, etc.? If scripture and/or the messengers speak clearly about these subjects, I'll retract all of my prior claims. Okay. Here's what you said: "Everything you have said is incorrect, the tectonic plates move in essence because of water flow, rising or lower each year which causes the distinction of the tectonic plates moving" To which I respond: How Earth's Plates Move Lesson #3 | Volcano World | Oregon State University What is this "something big"? Well I suppose that makes sense, but this thread is about whether or not God exists, not the consequence of God's existence. Why would that prove that God doesn't exist? You could simply ask your mother how you were born.
