It also sends a good message to children about taking responsibility for their actions.

Hehe I'm actually not that "fanatical in my beliefs". I am a believer but I don't really stress it that much. I don't go to church and am not entirely obsessed with it.

what person? who said person?

we are talking about God or Gods

it seems to be a requirement, just look back at all the belief systems and myths

why would monotheists give up such a winning bit of the equation?
modifications? no problem,
but don't kill the goose that lays the golden eggs

I really must learn how to be more open minded

It's okay to torture and kill somebody if they're the son of God (and are in fact God) - why didn't anybody tell Alberto Gonzalez about this neat loophole.

They only need enough people to pray

Why must any God adhere to the limits of our understanding?

I'm with Kieran.

All I know is that, last week, I made some comments in this forum. Since then, my people have been visited with a plague of snowflakes that will not stop. 29" over the weekend, 24" more today, and more reportedly coming. I will post here no more. Call me superstitious, but I know what I know.

I remember when my prematurely-born son was in intensive care , my crazy wack job religious in laws were already starting with the "it's God will" crap when it looked like we'd lose him and the "we prayed for a miracle and got it" when he lived - Umm, no it was the DOCTORS who saved his ass

you just don't get it
many don't

that miracle, that a little baby could be found alive in a tree
TWO WEEKS LATER
is proof that God does choose to do miracles, when he chooses

all the other deaths do not matter

if there were NO MIRACLES
then atheists would have better arguments!
