Well put, Evo.

I guess u'd have to do the same about realising god. Talking volumes wont help. Either sit there and say to urself and make believe that there's no god or go find out.
Icebreaker said:You just contradicted yourself. Like you said, praying doesn't get you anywhere, not even near god(s). If you want to be a chemist, then you have to study chemistry, discuss the reasons behind everything, and see for yourself experimentally; you can't simply sit there and pray to become a chemist. However, you cannot apply what you did above in the search for god; all you have left is that prayer, and that leads to nowhere.
if there is no difference between do this and this and prayer, stop doing science and start praying....give me a break.Icebreaker said:NOTHING will take you to god except your death. There's no difference between "do this and this" and "prayer".
