“”...what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
As a cchristian I would re-evaluate my understanding of causality. there are two types of causality, Material causality and efficiant cause
take michaelangelos david for example
Michaelangelo is the efficiant cause for david the statue but the marble stone is its material cause.
Michaelangelo did in fact CREATE david but he didn't cause the marble to come into existance.
Now compare this to Genesis account of CREATION. The earth was void withut form until god moved and formed things built shit and thus CREATED the earth.
Look at gods argument with Job. was he there when he "LAID THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE EARTH"
God tells you he built shit.. and his son just so happened to be a carpenter.. one that creates shit.
