    Ya, the another planet thing is pure fantasy on my part, but that would be cool, a different planet every time. Who knows? Maybe god is cool like that.

    "All of the prophets attribute their teaching and prophecies to an otherworldly source." Is there proof for this or we have to take their word for it?

    No, there are surely other planets out there that are inhabited.

    But nobody who tells of being reincarnated tells of having lived on them in past lives, so that makes earth special. :lol:

    No, it could simply mean that we all stay local, and not everyone remembers, so we don’t really know. Do you think that earth is alone with life on it?

    First of all, Genesis doesn't say anything was created from 'nothing', and for two, it also doesn't say God came from nothing, nor does it say God created all of it by himself.

    And as for 'stuff coming from nothing', I once accidentally knocked a.75 inch hole through three interior walls and out a brick wall 120 feet away with a mirror cavity full of 'nothing' and a beam of 'nothing that could be seen with a human eye while 'tweaking' a lense made of just 4.5 inch thick salt; it depends on how you define words and 'nothing' in particular.

    yes. Physics out ran the abilities of mathematical language to explain new discoveries by the 1970's, if not sooner in some cases, and there is no indication it will be able to catch up any time soon, especially since research in applied math is dead and most mathematicians have moved on to very abstract studies, in topology and other obtuse fields. Look how long we've been stuck with that obnoxious string theory and its matrixes now.

    Even that idiot Dawkins had to concede that 'evolution' turned into 'intelligent design' at some point in the process, while still babbling about it being 'random' in its earlier stages, a cognitive dissonance 'rationalists' seem to be fine with, being hypocrites and neurotics with political agendas they need to peddle.

    Do you think it matters whether we do or not? To who would it matter, and why?
