Sorry for taking so long… juantoo3 said, I have never taken a class on nor have I ever read a book about philosophy. I thought of that on my own. This is untrue. Heat energy can be transferred through a cycle until it reaches Kinetic energy once again. Energy cannot be “lost” to friction. Friction crates heat. When heated, Molecules vibrate faster than cooler ones. (Heat can be considered a form of Kinetic energy) Vibration is a form of movement (moving is Kinetic energy). All energies can transfer to any type of energy (many times energy requires to go through a cycle of types before it arrives at another type. Here we have a field in which is almost unexplainable to most physicists. However it makes sense after considering “String theory”. If you would like more information go to: http://superstringtheory.com/ You can find more on string theory using any search engine. Because I am pressed for time I am unsure if this sight explains the acceleration of the universe. (String theory also attempts to explain the start of the big bang.) You could call it faith however, religious faith and science faith is entirely different. Wile religious faith involves almost no evidence behind it, science faith seems to be a belief based upon a large body of evidence. Yes, science is always changing, however it is still logic based on knowledge. One who thinks. From Dictionary.com: To exist in actuality; have life…: I think, therefore I am. My original statement was, “If God is a being and is infinite then he must be able to stay alive forever.” If God in infinite in every aspect then he his life must also be infinite. Who are you to say there is a potter? I can interpret your vision of a “potter” in, a being. If this is true, you are assuming that the God is a being. Is it not possible for God to be non-thinking, have no wants or desires? I look at “God” in many different possibilities. Because I don’t Know for sure anything about God, I can only look at all possibilities. One possibility is that God is a concept of the beginning. It (God) did not try to nor prevent the start of the universe, it just became. (This is one out of many different possibilities for what God is) How? These are all characteristics of what some people claim God has. All I am trying to say is, you cannot prove any of these things apply to God because you don’t know how God operates. Why? You don’t know that God’s God is not testing us as well. But you are assuming that there is an extra existence beyond this one. This is based on faith not logic. Moreover, why do you believe this? ---- My argument is that faith cannot make you know anything. I don’t know anything about what I cannot sense. Therefore, until I do sense the creator I cannot make good assumptions. I never went to Sunday school. I went to church about ten times before I was twelve. Each time I went was because I wanted to go. Each time I went it was quite pleasant. I said: “Why not tell us directly of his existence? (I would be able to love him if I knew him)” If I wanted them to love me, just as many religions suggested, then… yes… without a shadow of a doubt. Why would I not tell them? It would seem that God, by not telling us, is causing more confusion than necessary and toying with us. In addition, if what some people believe to be true is true (if you do not believe in Christ then you will go to hell), it would be even more of a reason to tell everyone about myself (so I could prevent people from going to hell). I believe, believing is not knowing. It is difficult to love someone that might not even be there. I can Respect my unseen neighbor but until I know what he/she is like, where he/she lives or even that the person exists I cannot truly love him/her. It is impossible to truly love someone I am unsure exists because there is no doubt in love. I have my doubts. Because we both have yet to prove each other wrong, I will agree to disagree. Yes, It would be. However, I do not share the belief that morality is naturally inherent. Read the book “Lord Of The Flies”. It’s a pretty realistic view of human nature. Each religion describes morality differently. How can God expect humans to follow his rules if each religion is told what morality is (or how to live for that matter) differently? said by me: Is it possible to do anything you don’t want to do? You said: Yes, I don't want to sneeze, and I just did. I said: The answer is no, It is impossible to do anything you don’t want to do. (Dieing and getting sic do not apply.) I guess I did not state my idea fully. I meant it is impossible to do anything you don’t want to under your control. Such as, you are in your car and some guy puts a gun to your head and says, “drive” you can choose to drive or not. Because you rather not die you drive. You can take your chances and run away or you can take it in the face. Either way, it is your choice. If a car hits you then that’s not your choice but it is not under your control either. Some of these can be controlled through will. If you cannot control them then it is not applied to my revised argument. No you don’t. There is no “require” only want. Require by definition means, desire. Requirement is only a mindset to fulfill a want. I was but only in the case of an omniscient and benevolent God in which others where arguing. Ok… Tell me what the truth is… There are thousands to choose from… how do you know the one you picked will be correct?
