Some of the main reasons religion exists right there.

Yet, there is still millions of folks in poverty.

Thanks to where you were born and who you were born to. Lucky you. You could have been stuck with one of those crazy gods.

The evidence to prove your kinship to your parents is abundant. Furthermore, a man claiming "I'm your father" is easy to accept. It doesn't violate any understood parameters of reality as we know it. A claim like "God is my father" is a strange claim that is very difficult, maybe impossible to prove.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. What's your evidence j_seph?

I'll give you a hint. The answer is "Nothing else in my life is like my faith. Ultimately, I don't rely on any of the worldly means of proving things real in order to believe. I just believe first and in doing so I confirm my belief".

Do I understand faith?

Again, yes you can have blood test, DNA to scientifcally prove they are your Bio Parents. Your question was Is there anything in your life that you believe in prior to having evidence. You have no evidence other than you believe that they are your bio parents.

Have you ever seen someone whom is unsaved get convicted at church that they are headed to &#%^ get saved? When you see the true conviction it should be enough proof for anyone.

Friend of mine was called to preach. He ran from it not wanting to do it. He ended up having a wreck, was thrown out of the car. His bible was laying on the ground beside him, the only glass left in the car was a window that had a cross sticker on it. Even EMT could not believe he survived much less without major injuries.

Another friend, had most of his intestines removed and was told he wouldn't survive past 21. He past away in 2007 at 88 years old.

Prayers my wife has prayed for about her job, she went today from $7 something an hour to almost triple that an hour. Same job, doing same thing, same location, same employer.

How about the holy spirit get on someone? Have you seen it happen? Have you experienced it yourself? This ole boy right here cannot talk in front of more than about 2 people much less a group he knows and especially a group of over 100 he does not know. I will refuse and not do it period. It has been put on my heart before, more than once that I needed to say something at church. once was in front of the church of over 100 I did not know. There is no feeling like it and afterwards I will end up with legs a shaking like shooting that big buck.

I can somewhat understand why folks do not believe when they have never been around it nor opened their hearts up to it and only use their carnal minds and try to figure things out to get proof of something. One thing is for sure, as long as folks keep trying to prove there is not a God they still give the slightest hope to other non believers that maybe just maybe there is a God because no one can prove there isn't.

Your god has a lot in common with all the other gods.
We can go round and round on this unprovable claims merry go round but I hope that you see the flaws in your claims and actually have something tangible that you can back them up with.

I "get" what people think their god means to them.
I want you guys to actually produce a god instead of your fantasies. So far, all the things claimed are hype for a no show.

That's not good enough evidence for me and it wouldn't be for you either if someone was claiming the same things about the power of some other God that you don't personally believe in.

There is only one God, one creator. Almost sounds as you are confused or rather cannot make up your mind if there is one God or not. Like it says in 1 John, try the spirits. Until you experience it you will never understand and even then there will be no full understanding of it all.

1 John 4:1-5

4 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:

3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

5 They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.

Islam:
“He is God: there is no god other than Him. It is He who knows what is hidden as well as what is in the open, He is the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy. He is God: there is no god other than Him, the Controller, the Holy One, Source of Peace, Granter of Security, Guardian over all, the Almighty, the Compeller, the Truly Great; God is far above anything they consider to be His partner. He is God: the Creator, the Originator, the Shaper. The best names belong to Him. Everything in the heavens and earth glorifies Him: He is the Almighty, the Wise.”

The only way these gods continue to exist is because there is always some person, who's only interaction with a god is through words written by men, that convinces themselves they know an unknowable. The words they read are no different than all the others in all the other books written by "gods ".

^Same God, different belief(religion) of how to get to heaven.

Although Islam is not mentioned directly in the Bible, there is recorded in the Bible an outline of the Arabic people as the Children of Abraham who inhabited the “eastern country”. The history of the Muslim peoples, therefore, begins with the prophet Abraham and his descendants through Ishmael, his firstborn son.
Genesis 16:15
15 And Hagar bare Abram a son: and Abram called his son's name, which Hagar bare, Ishmael.

Not quite that simple. There are numerous Muslims and Christians that do not believe it is the same god.
Just one example. There are many.
Quote:
Do Muslims and Christians Worship the Same God?

With this desire for love in mind, I turn now to the question: Do Muslims and Christians worship the same God? Like all good questions, the answer is more complex than most want, but I am confident of my position: Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God, but given the complexity of the matter we all ought to stop demonizing those who disagree with us.

J-seph, do you have any family or friends or even know of one person that was an amputee and after praying to your god has regrown the limb?

http://krishna.org/a-miracle/

A Miracle!

I began to sing my prayers to lord Nrsimha and as I was singing I thought I felt a presence of so kind of spiritual power in the room. I continued my prayers. When my prayer was complete, I bowed down fully in surrender. As I was giving my last prayer (while still in full surrender) I thought I heard a Lion roar somewhere in the background.

It was a warm sunny afternoon on a tuesday. I usually do my prayers around 4:30 p.m, normal worship time, but that day I had to go somewhere, so I did my prayers around 1:30 p.m. I first did my Radha Madhava prayers, Followed by a munghal aarti of Lord Krishna. Now comes the miracle. I began to sing my prayers to lord Nrsimha and as I was singing I thought I felt a presence of so kind of spiritual power in the room. I continued my prayers. When my prayer was complete, I bowed down fully in surrender. As I was giving my last prayer (while still in full surrender) I thought I heard a Lion roar somewhere in the background. I looked up after my prayer to admire the spiritual rupa of Lord Nrsimha and I saw real blood driping from the body of Hirenyakashipu, For a second I was scared, naturally you would be scared if something unexpected happened. But after a while I felt this esctatic joy within me, I felt so happy, even today I feel happy. Can anyone give me a reason why this miracle happened to me and not to the other thousands of devotees?
