Germs and Jesus

Germs and Jesus

comment for free sound kitWhat do Jesus and germs have in common? Well.. nothing lol

But I want to use how we think of germs, yet believe they are real.

So to get you thinking where I’m coming from, answer this question to yourself.

How many times have you been in a public washroom and seen someone leave without washing their hands?

Me personally.. lol countless times.

But just from what we were told as a child, that if you don’t wash your hands after going to the washroom that you will have “germs” on your hands.

But when comparing this to God, what is the difference?

You are not able to see germs, yet believe they are there because for:

  1. You have been told that they exist
  2. It is a known fact that not washing your hands spreads sickness and is just unsanitary.
  3. And not washing your hands is just gross lol..

But now what is the difference with God and germs?

(Well besides God being Holy and all.. :lol:).

Some similarities are:

  1. You are not able to see germs and Jesus
  2. There is evidence that they are both real
  3. Both come by “believing” that they are real

But GratuiTous, everyone believes in germs!

Well.. I’d like to think so.. but then why do so many people leave the public washroom without washing their hands?

Germs and Jesus

We have been told that God exists, not only from the Bible, but from people, their testimonies, and just simply looking outside and seeing creation!

You try to create a plant that grows and has life in itself or create an animal from scratch like God says He did in the first pages of the Bible.

The thing is, when we sin, inside we know it’s wrong. But after awhile our hearts become numb to the sin, and treat it as if it’s alright because either our friends are doing it, or the media says it’s okay.

Germs – Wash your hands, destroy those germs, and stop the sickness.

Jesus – Repent from your sins, Allow Him to Destory your sins, Be Clothed in Righteousness

The difference? People not wanting to obey? I don’t know, you decide on that one.

    What a ridiculous comparison. You are aware we are capable of seeing “germs” with a microscope, right? Show me where god is hiding under a microscope.

      Actually truth be told Psalms 19:1-3 1The heavens declare the glory of God, the dome of the sky speaks the work of his hands. 2 Every day it utters speech, every night it reveals knowledge. 3Without speech, without a word, without their voices being heard…

      God doesn’t need a microscope, true, look around you and witness His glory.

        Argument from design? Nothing about the world around us necessitates a divine creator, and even if it did, there’s nothing to indicate that your deity was behind it. You could just as easily say the Cosmic Owl or the Flying Spaghetti Monster created it.

          So any suggestions what happens when we as humans die Preston?

        • Preston

          The brain stops, the body repays its debt to the earth by decaying, etc. As far as the concept of an afterlife goes, there’s no evidence to support that claim.

        • GratuiTous

          So in other words, enjoy life while you are here — Don’t worry about tomorrow? Where does hope and faith come in about heaven and salvation?

          Also, another question Preston,

          Do you believe in demons, satan, and other occult stuff? That is proof enough there is a hell. The earth, the sun, plants, creation, and the breath in our lungs are enough proof that God exists for me!

          I don’t recall saying anything like that. 🙂 Personally, I acknowledge that there’s no real reason to believe in any of the countless versions of the afterlife. I’m an atheist. Specifically, what you’d call a soft atheist, or an agnostic atheist. While I don’t actively believe in any gods, I acknowledge that it’s impossible to disprove their existence. However, it’s also impossible to disprove the existence of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and the Invisible Pink Unicorn.

          I don’t believe in anything supernatural. I have yet to see evidence for the existence of demons and the like, and beyond that, there would have to be evidence linking them to a Hell-like place.

          What you’re using is known as the Argument from Design, an argument full of logical fallacies to the point that if you said in a debate what you just said to me, you’d probably be laughed at. (No offense or anything. It’s pretty common, actually.) The first problem is that the assumption that the universe necessitates a divine creator is false. We as humans are naturally geared to recognize patterns and what we perceive as intelligent design. In fact, it’s a problem that comes up a lot when working with random numbers: we tend to notice patterns and falsely believe that the pattern is not truly random. We already have a pretty good understanding of how life has become more complex, and the universe’s formation isn’t particularly mysterious anymore.

          It also involves an instance of what’s known as special pleading. Special pleading is essentially when you lay out a rule, then claim that you get to make an exception to your own rule. This is done a lot in the first cause argument (“Everything has to have a first cause, therefore God created the universe!” “Jumping to conclusions aside, if you claim everything has to have a first cause, God does too. If there’s an exception to the first cause rule, there’s nothing to say that the universe itself isn’t that exception.”) Here, you’re arguing that complexity necessitates design, but if a divine god were to exist, wouldn’t you argue that he/she/it would be vastly more complex than a tree? If you argue that something so complex doesn’t need a designer, then you’ve just defeated your own argument. Which, hey, makes my job a lot easier. 😉
