Faith and blind belief are always self validating, you've made a giant leap forward with that realisation. Don't be in too much of a rush to rationalise it away. Keep an open mind, try occasionally asking yourself if your beliefs are justified, and whether there's enough evidence to support them, or if the contrary arguments you're dismissing are validated by the evidence.

I think you are indulging in some wishful thinking there. The couple found guilty of manslaughter for allowing their daughter to die believed as you do that God would prove himself. He didn't.

Ok, I agree in principle, and kudos for your ability to be so fair minded, I just tire of her constant dishonesty. However it would be interesting to know if this gender imbalance existed, and even more interesting to know why.

Alec says:- " There is no other and if a Elijah vs Baal test was to take place today God would prove himself."

Perhaps the Vatican, the only organisation able to afford two experimental bulls, could arrange this very interesting hypothesis to be proved in public in some site in the wilderness perhaps with the world looking on.
Now *that* would be of planet wide interest.
For all of us.
Just think of all the difficulties that would arise in sorting out how to prevent cheating behind the scenes here.
Imagine the forensics that would be needed to identify exactly what started the blaze - if one occurred at all, and what would happen in the highly probable event of there being nothing to witness.
I have a feeling that the level of dishonesty that could develop would be so high and likely, as to cause the whole thing to be abandoned before the event ever came to fruition.
Why?
The 'steaks' would be too high!

Brilliant, another belly laugh. I just spent an hour or so cutting wood for the log store and my back is killing me as well, so I'm now rolling around the couch laughing and yelping at the same time.

If a Chinese peasant prays for a car, what happens?

Of course he could also do the other Christian thing, steal the car and then ask God for forgiveness.

The people praying to God to save the life of their child were not looking for a big house or a fast car. What worth have the words of Jesus if they are not true?

> What religion was this so called couple and did this religion demand they take such a stance?

There have been many children. Take this case for an example: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/04/23/herbert-catherine-schaible_n_3138001.html

"Herbert and Catherine Schaible belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that believes in faith healing. They lost their 8-month-old son, Brandon, last week after he suffered from diarrhea and breathing problems for at least a week, and stopped eating. Four years ago, another son died from bacterial pneumonia."

Two children dead because the parents believe that Jesus did not lie. The Christian religion does not demand that its followers take this stance, because the church is well aware that it is a lie.
