    Re: The sheep challenge

    This debate was concerning the statement.....

    "I think I can show it is more reasonable to believe in God than to believe in the world you actually see."

    So far nobody has gotten close to mentioning that.

    How did dreams get a mention?

    The only thing I have ascertained from this so far is that blossom viewed from my window is not proof enough of it's existance.
    When I put foreward the idea that enough blossom pushed up your breathing cavities and you die........the idea gets ignored.

    What level of 'reasonable' are we talking about here? As in the statement "more reasonable to believe in god than to believe in the world you actually see"?

    So you are willing to say that the ability to distinguish reality is as valid in a sub-conscience state as it is in a conscience one? I've got two legs - you can now pull the other one.

    I reckon the one called sheep is pulling more than my leg.................................and he's enjoying it a lot more than I am.

    Never mind the thread. Haven't you have an uncle Reggie from Yorkshire countryside? Ask him what to do about sheep.

    Is English your second language ?
    Or has mentioning sheep made you too excited to type properly?

    That the apple comes from the tree and the tree from the Earth are demonstrable facts, that the Earth comes from God is opinion.
