I bet ALL eggs come from rocks that god saw their shape and was like "LOOK THIS IS COOL!" and he liked it so much he turned it into an egg. Then he kept changing what came out of those eggs until it became a chicken.

Oh no no no no no.
Make no comparisons on God and Mother Nature!
God is still unproved
Nature is real, all around us, we can see,feel,smell,touch nature.
We bloody well are nature!

How can anything be unnatural then? How come there is such a thing as "synthetic" when there is only nature around us?

Natural: Occuring in Nature with no input from mankind.

Synthetic: Using natural ingredients to create something that could never actually occur on it's own without mankind's meddling.

But yes,.. the Earth is (for the purposes of argument) a closed system. Anything and everything that happens on the planet can be said to totally natural.

Well that's the point isn't it. If he ain't real you can't ask him, meaning he isn't real. The whole point of the conversation was to prove wether God existed and how powerful he was if proven real.

What's with the drowsy face? And I thought this thread was about God making a rock he couldn't move and chickens and eggs.

Or simply 'the universe' (no matter how many there may be). Let's try not to personify stuff where there is no need to.

Considering the fact that (some) people/religions(?) tend to say God is everywhere and everything, God could as well be seen as a synonym for 'nature'. Put into the right perspective there is nothing wrong with that.
But I think i do not like the idea that "something was done" literally. In my opinion "something happened" is more the correct term to use.

At least we don't know if it occured "on it's own" somewhere.

The Chicken/Egg theory was just abit of fun side track.

Ah but Ray, is "Mother Nature" not just a collective term for nature itself?
Wouldn't that mean that "God" was a collective term for everything?

Why not? There were/are religions worshipping many different deities. One for the fire, one for thunder, one for the harvest etc, etc. You can say one for every for-our-life-significant happening in "nature". Of course that's not very 'useful' for bigger religious movement, so the different gods simply were 'combined', the god of thunder and fire became one and/or whatever. Until one day there was only one god left, responsible for everything. So from a certain point of view, God is nature, even the whole universe and more, so to say. It just depends on how things are interpreted. To refer the Zoomster: "I don't believe the universe is run by a little man sitting in a little room pushing buttons", err.. or like that.

Ancient Greeks, Hindu's Ancient Egyptians and many other regions, they all had multiple gods for many different aspects of life. But it is a lot of peoples opinion that God is Omnipresent, meaning he is everywhere, and in order for him to be everywhere, he would have to be everything, therefore, based on that theory, he is eveywhere.

Yes. Exactly like "nature is everywhere". The difference is clearly the belief/"truth"/interpretation one may put behind these words.

You're confusing her with Mother Maggie.


Meanwhile, in England:
Englishman: I say, Jeremy, isn't that Reginald B. Stifworth, the young upstart chap who's been touting the merits of a united European commonwealth?
Jeremy: Why yes, I daresay it is.
Englishman: Oh, let's get him.

Englishman: Oh Reginald... I disagree.

I used to drink schnaps, but it sucked all the moisture from my body, and I used to wake up with my tounge stuck to my forehead.

These days I just play it safe and drink gin, with a little 7-up, and a touch of lemonade.

I was in England, a couple of times, and I have to say the best food available there is McDonalds. The large Big Mac Meal to take away. With coke and ketchup. Plus one large Milkshake chocolate flavor. My second favourite was canned spaghetti on toast followed directly by somewhat undescribeable sausage thingers and potato-urgh with hairs from five kitties and peas.

But I always had a great time there!

1. Time:
- Learned that "spaghetti on toast" is actually a real meant meal.
- Invented f my super secret nickname.
- Nearly got a girl.
- Went to Victoria station in London, right after the bomb attack, but did not know and left my bag on the floor.
- Learned that "Pommes Frites" is nothing you can get in England, same goes for "Royal TS". I can live with that, though.

2. Time:
- Drove by bike over 700km through Wales, right after one incredible exclusive night in Liverpool and breakfast at Sgt Peppers.
- By bike through London = FUN!

3. Time:
- Tought some english girls to say "n÷". Then they took me for a trip to Dover. Err.. and so.
- Walked home 1.5 hours in the rain and met a very dangerous looking dog, without someone he would possibly listen to.
- Went into some Laser shooting thing somewhere I don't remember. But i was pure fun.
- Learned that it is a great thing to get up 04:00 to do some jogging on the beach until 05:30.

4. Time:
- Visited Alien Wars and another Laser shooting thing in London.
- Bought me two Alien vs. Predator comics.
- Drank Carlsberg Ice Beer, which was cool and tasty. I never saw that again, but forgot a Desperados in the freezer last birthday, and what can i say, it tasted similiar.


Also, in the end i can say, england has only two types of girls: wow and mow.

yeah, when we are in need of a quick snack we just put something on toast... beans on toast, cheese on toast, spaghetti on toast, scrambled egg on toast, noodles on toast, toast on toast...

next time you'll have to try 'Toad in the Hole' which is Sausages cooked inside a giant yorkshire pudding (which is light, crisp and golden batter)

yeah baby! *drools*
