  2. There's no plausible explanation for God, He said from the burning bush; " I Am That I Am " (Exodus 3:14). From that perspective, everything that exist is a miracle. I see all of creation as a miracle, so a non-consuming burning bush is no more miraculous than anything I can see and understand. If you saw a bush growing on Mars, you might consider it a miracle because there is no plausible explanation of how that could happen. But that same bush growing on earth is nothing spectacular because we've excepted that things grow in the environment we're in and understand. There's no evidence for something beyond our understanding, we simply accept God from the evidence of creation, and believe "With God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26). Jesus told nonbelievers that the only evidence (sign) they would get was that after 3 days in the tomb, he would physically raise from the dead. No one could produce his body after 3 days, but the evidence did not suffice because there was no plausible explanation of how it could be so.. We accept God by faith because our limited understanding can't comprehend all that He is.

  4. Yyou offered a plausible explanation for talking plants? I think you have an issue with dishonesty...
  5. My mission in this life is to get MYSELF through it without causing others harm in any way.... When the opportunity to help another comes along, I’ve been ever-ready to assist, but I'll not drag anybody where they don't want to go.... I offered a plausible explanation for the phenomena... It appears your mind is not amendable. You have decided what you want to believe, and I have neither the time nor patience to coax you into enlightenment. Again, my mission in life is to get MYSELF through it.... you, sir, are on your own.....
  6. Show evidence of a speaking burning bush.

  11. I thought about this......i thought about this..... for along time.....it affected me deeply.....SO...i think of this as a new re-introduction.....a re-emergence of sort......It came from the heart......it felt like a sledge hammer to the back of the head....completely took me by surprise........I was shaken......and lost.....completely vulnerable.........I looked into the mirror....and i saw...????...singularity....a separate unit....completely oblivious to the obscurity of this world....the world i am forced to live in .....People need identity.....they need reality to be real.....they need to build a nest in a community,,,,and they need to fill comfortable....when.....chaos abounds.....they dont see with their eyes....and very seldom with their heart...and they cant see beyond....when tragedy strikes....they cant understand the world they create.....I found myself alone....I tried to use my religious understanding to weave a path thru the thickets of a lost world and industrial spiritual waste....only to be defeated and left rotting by the wayside.....my children tried to pin their father to the ground and force feed him a diet of liberal Americana.....SO......i looked into the mirror.......I saw intolerance......i saw a man......that leads one life...????....but the world requires this life........Ive separated myself from this world and now ive separated myself from my children....its this incomplete silence that lingers in my spiritual self....its meat hooks pulling me into the earth....ripping at my spirit....forward into condemnation ...if that were possible.....yet the flames of judgement have no affect upon my eternal spirit....I will not taste the forbidden fruit of American decadence.....I am singular.....without a path....with a vision....the world will pass away......and i ......will live forever

    Deities

    Greetings and Merry Meet Myrddin, I love the post and your view point on how you precieve and recongnize Deity and the Divine. how wonderful, As a Witch my self and a member of the Wica. i do agree with what you have said here. From my Training and Tradition. we do have the universal All, in General refered too as you said Dryghten. or also called Baphomet. and several others that are or atleast secret names within Tradition. like wise i do have my own set of Deity name's from Family as well those i have come to find in relation to my practice. but those Deity i work with Within Tradition we keep secret as known only once one has become a 3rd degree as they are only for those whom have saught the mysteries in full. but there are many other names used as most tend to known of Aradia and Cernnonos to which is fine for those whom use these names. as long as one understands and really builds a relationship with them. Within Tradition i use my elemental god's of the Four winds and Castles of the elemental way's as well to those whom are the Beloved dead and ancestors like wise Lesser god's and Familial too. we also have our personal/patron but they are tend to be for personal use usually. I also agree that no there are no popes or kings/queens. as we do have those are high regard and Witch Queens are only a title for those high priestesses that have atleast 3 other covens in full that have come from her own line. and never a King of the Witches. despite some grandiose claims.

    Sons Wedding

    Congratulations for your sons wedding.
  21. so the bible wasnt referencing a miracle with the burning bush story? really? or are you beinng dishonest with that piece? i dont believe that plant talks...and isnt it consumed? clearly you try to obfuscate the truth, that there is no evidence of a burning bush SPEAKING....didnt think i'd have to specify the important part of that story, but some simply cant grasp context i suppose.
  22. " Is there proof that there was ever a burning bush? " - Dictamnus albus ".... scientists are open to the possibility that they are wrong. " Thanks for the laugh!
  23. I don't believe in things until I have a decent reason to do so. I don't have to have perfect evidence, I don't have to have evidence that is iron clad. I don't believe in Unicorns because I haven't seen good evidence that they exist. I don't believe in Zeus, contrary to the fact that I have seen lightning and that it has been in the past ascribed to the actions of said being. I don't believe in Apollo, I see the sun though. No...I don't believe in the biblical version of God, either. I have similar reasoning for not believing in the biblical God as I do in Zeus, or Apollo. I believe science. I can point to Greek and Roman mythology and say...most everything in those books has turned out not to be true. I can point to Christian mythology and say, while there are some historical accuracies in terms of cities that existed, and perhaps some of the people were around, I have never seen a burning bush nor had a divine voice descend from the heavens and tell me anything. I have never seen prayer heal a severed arm or leg. I have never seen a demon or anything remotely resembling this evil that Christians insist is so prevalent. I can point to science and say there are many flaws and errors created in scientific investigation, but at the least the scientists are open to the possibility that they are wrong. I can point to the process in many things that I encounter on a daily basis, things that I use that are based on scientific principles, that without science couldn't exist. This computer is a prime example, as is the internet. As is the fact that I can see, because I wear contacts. As is the fact that my daughter is alive today. Science is inherently bound within so much of everything we do, and we see it work on a daily, even hourly basis. Some insist on calling this faith. Firm belief in something for which there is no proof. That is the very definition of faith. Is there proof that Zeus produces lightning because he is angry? No. There are written testimonies from superstitious ancient people. Is there proof that there was ever a burning bush? No. There are written testimonies from superstitious ancient people. Is there proof that levetiracetam helps prevent seizures? Yes. It has been studied extensively, tested, gone through the scientific process...and it actually produces results that are reproducible. So no...I don't have faith in science.

    persecuted

    I don't know if you have followed the news a bit in the 1990's... but I am from (former) Yugoslavia. I consider myself to be (part of the social structure, that identifies itself as) Orthodox Christian. Unfortunately my family has lived in (the former Yugoslav republic of) Croatia for the previous 600 years (prior to the 1990's). Croatia is considered to be (part of the social structure, that identifies itself as) Catholic. The war that raged in the 1990's many consider to be "religious". "We" (Orthodox Christians) have been persecuted in Croatia into "extinction" (literally, the village my ancestors founded now has 2 - very old - inhabitants). But up to today I still do not consider the persecution to be religion based. It was power based. A bunch of power-hungry individuals who grasped their moment in history and used religion as an convenient opportunity...

    persecuted

    That's a good question. It depends on your definition of the term. I've never personally claimed to be persecuted as a Christian, but I've witnessed some who have died for their faith. I won't get into the gory details except to say that the world is a very troubled place. There are many people who will not tolerate the existence of any beliefs but their own. That has caused me a great deal of suffering. “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”

    persecuted

    i get this argument a lot on forums, and the killer of the conversation is usually christian claims persecution. i ask for an example and its crickets. favor...if you can, produce an example of how you as a christian have been persecuted.
