    "There are only two ways to live life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is." – Albert Einstein

    The quote attributed to Einstein is profound.

    th?id=H.4720028464450923&pid=15.1&H=112&

    It captures a central issue dividing worldviews.

    The Christian worldview fully embraces miracles. The foundation of Christianity is a miracle, i.e., the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Other miracles, such as the creation of life and the creation of the universe from nothing, by the God of the Bible, are basic to Judeo-Christianity.

    Atheists and other pagans define miracles as irrational. They often try to add prestige to their outlook by hijacking the reputations of great scientific minds like Einstein.

    Miracles are like God's signature, ubiquitous. Every atom is arguably a miracle. The orbiting electrons in every atom -- perpetual motion anyone? -- are arguably miracles. Every living cell is a miracle beyond human ingenuity. Every human being is a priceless, unique miracle. Miracles are all around us.

    Einstein's quote should be remembered whenever men are choosing between the two main worldviews.

    "The thing that amazes me about getting fired is that nobody ever has anything insightful to say about it. They always say the same thing. They always say, 'Everything happens for a reason.' As lame as that sounds, I guess it’s better to hear it out loud. Because when you hear it in your own head, it sounds like, 'Anything can happen with a razor.'”

    -- Laura Kightlinger

    jockfever: The Christian worldview fully embraces miracles. The foundation of Christianity is a miracle, i.e., the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

    Aristoshark: The true miracles of Christianity:

    That Joseph was gullible...
    That anyone believes...
    That anyone believes...


    jockfever: Favorite delusions of anti-Christian bigots:

    1. Nothing created Everything -- all the matter, energy, and order in the universe came from nowhere.

    2. Life created itself, by a freakish unrepeatable unobserved accident, from nonliving matter.

    3. Laws happen without a Lawgiver and information, e.g. DNA, happens without a preceding Intelligence.

    4. Designs beyond human ingenuity happen accidentally. We're all just freakish accidents with no purpose or destiny.

    5. Microbes turn into microbiologists through unguided mutations. "We didn't see it happen; we don't know how it possibly could have happened; and we can't make it happen again; but we know it must have happened" is just basic science.

    6. Matter is all there is, except the idea that "Matter is all there is" isn't material.

    7. Ignoring fulfilled Bible prophecy demonstrates true genius.

    8. Although Jesus Christ is the most influential person who ever lived, His Resurrection is one of the best forensically validated events of antiquity, and many of His followers died rather than deny what they had seen, people who represent themselves as heavy fish are competent to deny secular and Biblical history.

    9. Fervently embracing hallucinations 1. through 8. qualifies one to impugn the one true worldview.

    Leave it to jockfever to ruin an otherwise perfectly good thread. Apparently you are unaware that the term "pagan" can apply to someone who's a creationist, and could, like you, believe that life is a miracle unto itself.

    But back to the point of the thread...

    OP, nice collection of quotes. I guess Homer Simpon's quote wouldn't fit: "Trying is the first step towards failure." icon_biggrin.gif

    I agree completely. In addition to the Bible, I also would like to point to Mathilda, she could move things with sheer mindpower. How do so called "atheists" explain that? Let's not also forget Harry Potter, Book 2, chapter 17 where he drew the the Gryffindor-sword out of the hat. How does science explain that? Or are they going to use their ongoing lie that "nothing created it"? LOL.

    We shouldn't forget that the foundation of Einstein's theories were not founded in science and math and all that stuff, but in God. All the premises for his theories can be found in the bible, and the Lord of the Rings-series.

    I don't take sides in the religious debates but just the same I would like to point out something that all religious people ignore.
    Jesus said (and I'm paraphrasing)

    DO NOT TESTIFY TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT.
    IT DOES NOTHING BUT GIVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO COMMIT BLASPHEMY.

    It's right there in the Bible.
    Could we all please listen to Jesus and not just our own egos?

    jockfever: Maybe it is better to not take sides than to present material that looks like it came from fakebiblequotes.com

    As a palate cleanser, here are some real quotes:


    Matthew 10:26

    “So do not be afraid of them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs. 28 Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

    32 “Whoever acknowledges Me before others, I will also acknowledge before My Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns Me before others, I will disown before My Father in heaven.

    jockfever: Vile, derisive comments about Christianity could never ruin a thread, right?; it's claiming that pagans (1) deny that miracles happen, and (2) try to hijack the reputations of great people that ruins a thread, right? Example of (2):

    th?id=H.4882257900144632&pid=15.1&H=155&

    Of the eight guys depicted, only one was actually an atheist. He put the barrel of a loaded shotgun into his mouth. For details, see the movie "Evolution vs. God" posted under Spirituality.

    Pagan. One who rejects, and/or is ignorant of, the God of the Bible.
