Re: the god delusion

Well I havent read the book but here is a view of mine. I cant see how people think we evolved. Things (animals, plants, humans etc) are too ferfect to have come out of no where. Everything in the human body would have had to evolved so fast and at the same to for it to work. So all organs would need to come about some how at exactly the same time and work, oh then you would have to evolve skin for it...doh... So lungs but no heart = dead. lungs and heart but no liver = dead etc. Also 1st john 5:19 says something like...we know we oringenate with god, but the world is lying in the power of the wicked one. So just because crap things happen in the world doesnt mean there is no god because he isnt ruling..... YET!!!

Re: the god delusion

No but you can feel and see an impact of wind, you can also explain it using science of high and low pressures (or high and low temperatures), you can also create it yourself and comprehend the atomic level that it goes down to, it satisfies both laws of thermodynamics and can be used for benefit. It fits in with all of our understanding of science and physically exists (through feel) and can be predicted.

Don't belive it myself but learned a long time ago people with faith prefer it to reason. So I don't try argue it against it now
