Kinda surprised to see nutters here, promoting their supernatural giberish as fact in the middle of a friendly discussion.
For the record, I do NOT have to accept your supernatural beliefs as fact, and if you think that makes me "Alt-right" you're probably more delusional than I think!

Timely post. I just jumped on FB, and a really good friend who I think the world of put up yet another conspiracy. She doesn't believe in God, is anti xtian, but seems to swallow every conceivable conspiracy theory. Tis time she was supporting some idiot post that 9/11 at the Twin Towers was actually a controlled demolition. I know people who were in the towers that day, I found her post offensive. She also seems to believe in ghosts, fairies and the like. She does reiki, so you get the idea. Drives me nuts.


Very good


Report them. Thats not what we're here for.


People with an opposing opinion keep the conversation going and me thinking. If everyone thought alike, we would all be just nodding heads.


I am positive that there is no credible evidence for the existence of any supernatural being or supernatural event.

Wishful thinking often leads to a miracle.
I witnessed the proclaiming of a miracle.

Several years ago, when I was a Christian, I attended a Bible Study at the home of one of the brothers of my church. It was late afternoon, and we were sitting in a circle in the living room. From my seat, I could see down a hallway from off the living room where there were bedroom doors in this hallway.

As the sun was going down I noticed that the sun was shinning from a bedroom window on to the wall in the hallway. As a truck or large vehicle rode by the house it would block the sun and the shadow would move across the wall of the hallway.

As I was watching a shadow move down the hallway, the woman sitting next to me jumped up and screamed, “”I just saw an Angel in the hallway””
Another woman jumped up “” I saw it also””

Everyone at the Bible Study jumped up and crowded into the hallway searching for the Angel.

By the time everyone was back in their seats, the sun was down, and it would have been useless to try and explain what had happened. They were all convinced that an Angel had visited our Bible Study.

By Sunday Service, it was official, the Pastor announced “”An Angel has visited our Bible Study. Praise God!””

That's how you get a Christian Miracle.

Classic confirmation bias

Excellent comment. In the Bible after the supposed resurrection of Jesus, the only people who supposedly saw Jesus were his own followers. Certainly if there is any truth to this story, this is an example of vivid imaginations, and hysteria. @JustKip

@Proto There is an amazing Scripture that sheds a lot of light on confirmation bias.
Matthew 28:16-17 (New American Standard Bible)
16But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated.
17When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful.
This is an amazing Scripture passage. Here we have 11 men who lived with Jesus several years, they see Jesus post mortem and some of them have doubt?
Obviously this was some type of fraud.
