Seriously, what is the record of supernatural explanations against scientific ones? Which ones have held up, in medicine, or the natural world, cosmology?

It's a near constant historical beatdown of supernatural explanations replaced by scientific ones.

Parting the Red Sea, burning but not consumed bush, healings of Christ, feeding of multitudes by Christ, Raising of Lazarus from the dead, resurrection of Christ, inclement weather at the invasion of Normandy, election of Obama to name a few

Last Sunday I was killing time in a casino and thought to myself I should go to church. I drove to 2 churches near the area and they were both closed. Is this God telling me to keep gambling?

I change my mind.
I'm OK with Corps which pick and choose clienteles. Both insurance companies and casinos have the right to pick and choose customers. They may keep profitable ones and kicked out the rest. But, I'm not OK with a casino supervisor who says counting cards... is like stealing food from a buffet (a foodlifting offense), or video-taping a movie in a cinema (a piracy offense).

S#$% in my yard, and I'll likely take pictures and have a poor opinion of you. Throw it at guests, you gotta go.

First you have to clarify which God you are talking about, and define him/her/it/them.

There are thousands of different "Gods" around the globe, through history. You can't make blanket statements that you believe or know in/of "God".

The Almighty helps those who help themselves. High-Techs (God's gift to His creatures) can increase your luck. If I were you, I would "smart-phone" the churches to make sure that they are still in business before I drop by.

The Almighty surely wants you and me to gamble smartly with +EVs. When we win, He wins too. We'll make a bigger donation to His church due to the adrenaline rush as a big winner :-)



I google mapped it and both were open supposedly. Maybe I missed the service.

BTW does God still take human sacrifices? I need to jumpstart my royal cycles since I am running bad :(

lol don't see why he wouldn't, but remember depending on what god you are sacrificing to he may require burnt offerings in which case your going to need a pretty big grill or a fire pit.

No, God doesn't like the burnt human fleshes anymore ever since Abraham almost immolates Isaac.

Hey go to the online chapel and pray really hard; perhaps during your meditation, you may find an answer in how to re-jump-start your cycles profitably. Of course, you have to do your hard work first before the Almighty helps you to get over the hump :-)


I just tune in and enjoy the spiritual angelic music by the organist.

Here is the 24/7 online live webcam of the chapel @ St Maximilian Colbe Shrine near North Chicago, IL:

It always struck me as odd that people thought the world is flat. The night sky looks dome shaped and appears to rotate. Like I can understand people thinking that the earth didn't rotate and thinking that the earth was the center and everything rotated around the earth but not that the earth is flat.


You're blinded by the empirical history. If you think about it, up/down is the most useless direction ever. Most of life occurs on the surface of the earth. So, why round off the earth, eg?

But, logically, nothing is redundant or useless about a well- designed or defined universe. Not of up/down in particular. Hence, up/down became the third dimension, which can't lay flat, as a regular surface. The "useless" became a paradox of the ahead/back wrapped left/right into opposing up/downs.

Perhaps, the atheists still want to hold onto a "flat" universe without a creator - for the similar argument - of needless complication; as much as the religious to a "round" one. More likely, both will have to compromise. Paradox has already been used up.

Add on: Similar argument, but with the roles reversed.
Nonsense is a very hard thing to keep up. Just ask the Wizard and company.
