    Everything that begins to exist has a cause. Specialists agree that the universe began to exist. Therefore, the universe apparently has a cause.

    But the cause of the universe must exist without space and time and is thereby immaterial. But the only immaterial causes we know of are minds. The cause is thereby a timeless, spaceless, mind with unparalleled power.

    Secondly, Jesus plausibly rose from the dead, as indicated by His physical appearances after His crucifixion. Even skeptical scholars concede such appearances and typically admit of no good naturalistic explanation.

    Thus, we have a Creator who manifested Himself in Jesus.

    Man Of Miracles?

    [​IMG]

    "It is revealed that Mother/Man of Miracles is in fact the one who walked among mortals as "Jesus Christ", and thus was actually independent of God in the Spawn universe. The twelve heavenly warriors known as the Disciples, formed from the souls of the Twelve Apostles, actually follow Man of Miracles above God."

    MoM created the multiverse, heaven, hell, God, Satan, etc. Any true comic fan should know this.

    Whoops! Forgot to make my case.

    I read it on a bumper sticker which IMO gives it more credibility than most religious lit.
    The end.

    But BTW TS, I didn't mean to hijack your thread or anything. It's just that everything you mentioned is the exact same thing that was said for MoM in the Spawn comics. Virtually word for word. Thought I'd just throw that out there.

    Wait, what?

    That was pretty left field. I was expecting some kind of deep new age style spirit science conclusion and I got ...well... that.

    Pretty sure Jesus was written about far before a Spawn comic came out.
    So perhaps your comic book isn't working with original material.

    I would argue these premises and their conclusions never mind the Jesus argument.The first argument contains the appeal to authority fallacy. Not all "specialist" agree how the universe began nor do they agree that it "began". Whom are these specialist anyway? The first premise in the second argument is strikingly bad. If time and space began with the big bang that by no means is equal to there being no material thing before it. How do(es) immaterial thing/s give rise to material things? Because it is "a timeless, spaceless, mind with unparalleled power"? Where does this "unparalleled power" come from? You rush to that conclusion without justification. The dualistic premise is also horrible. Prove minds are immaterial causes independent of a brain or some physical thing.

    Might be more than 100 words

    Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
    And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
    That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
    A sun that is the source of all our power.
    The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
    Are moving at a million miles a day
    In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
    Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.
    Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
    It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
    It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
    But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
    We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
    We go 'round every two hundred million years,
    And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
    In this amazing and expanding universe.

    The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
    In all of the directions it can whizz
    As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
    Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.
    So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
    How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
    And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
    'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

    Science hasn't figured it out yet, but it probably has nothing to do with Jesus.
