Can you provide any evidence for the supernatural that is relevant to real life that doesn't rely on the supernatural?

Literally everything based in reality. Now go crawl back under your rock.

Technology. Medicine.

Go stand at the bottom of that cliff blindfold. It's 25 feet tall. I'll drop an anvil and shout at the same time. Without using "science," tell me if you'll have enough time to move out of the way. Don't forget to factor in the average reaction time of a human being with only one brain cell.

What kind of hopelessly self-defeating challenge is that? That's like asking someone to participate in a debate without being allowed to mention the topic.

Um um what?

Uhm,,, modern amenities and health services.

Can you provide any evidence religion is relevant to real life without relying on bullshit?

Can you prove that the Bible is true without relying on the Bible?

Unless "The Matrix" is a documentary, touch the back of your neck.

If there isn't a neural interface jack - and you don't see the same cat do the same thing twice - congratulations: you're on Planet Reality.

Now try posting on that same forum using nothing but Prayer & 'Faith', Dope.

Name a phenomenom. Any phenomenom. Science has an explanation for it - if not a universally accepted one, then at least one which has been subject to constant peer review and scrutiny until we're sure it fits.

I'll get back to you, Hope. Honest.

How about the computer or phone you typed that stupid comment on?

The medium you just used to ask that embarrassingly stupid question. And probably use to look up the discount 5th rate apologetics you use in a desperate attempt to fool yourself into believing that you still believe.

Why would I want to ?

I don't need to prove anything to you, I merely need to wait until you win a Darwin Award after you drown looking up into rain.

Yes I can. It's called the technological device you used to post this.

1/9/2017 7:12:08 PM

Sorry for everyone pointing out medicine and technology, but those rely on science. And we're not supposed to rely on science for this challenge. What good is science for except for everything we do with science?

Can you prove that the Bible is true without relying on the Bible?

Or with it. Especially with it.

When I take my pills, my depression goes away. Thank you, science.

What? Don't you want any "sciency" words that you can't understand?

Science is based on real life, not the other way around, silly-nilly.

The fact that we now live to be over 80 on average, in the West at least, is a sign that science is relevant to real life. When I was little, 80 was a VERY old age. Now, more and more people live to be well over 90. My father's aunt is 98 and very sprightly for her age.

Neither cancer nor HIV are now certain death-sentences. You can live 20 years or more after either diagnose.

What's irrelevant is religion. Some 50-80 percent of the Swedish population is non-religious, and religion plays an important part in the lives of only a few percent of the population. Most people don't even care about it enough to call themselves atheists; it's just a non-issue. Sweden is often pretty high up on happiness, quality of life, and other similar lists.

How many people have died of polio in the past six months? Have you driven a car lately? Used a microwave? Taken a tylenol? Hells, the Ninja Turtles bandaid covering the blister on my foot is a fucking miracle of scientific research! (don't judge, i have a small nephew...)

Can anyone prove the Sun is there without pointing to all the evidence for its existence?

1/10/2017 3:42:20 AM


OK, I'll bite, Hope:

No, I can't.

So what?
