What would convince me of the existance of Angels and/or Demons would be to meet one, face-to-face. Nothing less will suffice. But you could die if that happens, and then, no evidence would exist rather than a mysterious heart attack :P On the other hand, being a lot less drastic, you would have to...

He's really an athiest, and not the religious fanatic that he pretends to be.

No ... I have normal feelings regarding my friends.

Retrograde time travel is impossible, only because it would violate causality - causes must precede their effects. Thus, we can not have a time traveller depart the future (the cause) to arrive in the past (the effect). One may as well believe that Hiroshima was destroyed in 1946 by a bomb dropped o...

Zing! but then is not String Theory bringing science closer to religion? :lol: Maybe ... if you consider that only a special 'priesthood' of enlightened people who mutter an arcane labguage into their beards while enscribing their inspirations in illuminated tomes that will rarely (if ever) be take...

I invented the Internet; therefore, it exists. :P 1)Fnord invented the internet 2)Fnord is Al Gore Damn, that's scary. It was back around 1980, I was attending university, and several of us (students, professors, and government types...) were discussing the impending evolution of the ArpaNet. I tho...

If I were the type to be considered "gorgeous" (I'm an average, I'd say) then I believe it would be extremely frustrating to be taken only at face value and treated like "arm candy." How would you tell if a potential partner wanted you for you, instead of for your "trophy appeal?" What would be the...

We can almost touch God with the advent of the String Theory. ;)

This book looks interesting, especially if one likes ancient and middle history related to religion, I suppose. It is interesting that it is under the genre of Science Fiction, it seems to just illustrate an alternative history, from the reviews, and not making a relation or a conexion in the novel...

Faith in a divine being is merely belief in someone whose existance can not be proven. Unfortunately, humans have mucked up that faith with religion, which is the political expression of faith. "Believe as thou wilt, but the First Law is Love; Therefore, above all else, thou shalt do no harm."

Anyone else think this might make a good story in book or movie format?

It's been ...

YOU are not mentioned in the Bible.

Exactly :P

Besides, unless pat666rick can provide evidence that he is God's own chosen prophet, we can ignore any statement he makes regarding what Gos does and does not like.

Time traveling isn't in the bible so therefore it's blasphemy. It's for sinners IMO. Same as computers, but I still use them. I sort of regret using any high-technology. Whatever is not mentioned in the Bible (computers, gunpowder, anticoagulants, et cetera) is not blasphemous, but if you use them ...

If you orbit the earth the opposite way to which it is turning, faster than it takes to perform a whole rotation (a day), then essentially you go back in time. Or so I remember. I guess time is created as a human convenience and in fact, physics allow us to overlap it when possible. Currently I can...
