Do U Believe In Miracles?

Wed Apr 27, 2005 4:20 am

I was reading that the late Pope Jon Paul the II will be canonized, wich means he´s considered a Saint person, and to be considered a Saint person, one must have had performed a couple of miracles.

So....is it just me or this sounds like a big BS, I mean, we´re in 2005 and people still belive in miracles??or I´m going straigh to hell???

let´s hear from U.

ps. this is not a religious post, so if U wanna talk religion or anything start your own thread Big grin

If we are talking about Miracles then Herb Brooks should be cannonized.

Seriously, it is a miracle every day when I wake up in the morning.

I certainly do believe in them.

A very good friend of mine-she's like a sister to me, at work-her husband had a tumor in his brain, and was going through treatment after treatement to try and remove it or neutralize it, but nothing was working. At the time, she had a little 18 month old toddler, and was so afraid her little girl was going to grow up without knowing her dad.

Miraculously, and against all the prognostications of the doctors, the tumor started to shrink and vanished-and while there's a good chance he'll get it again someday, it's still hasn't returned.

And the real miracle? After his radiation, he wasn't supposed to father another child-he did.

So yes, I believe in miracles.

No, and please see this thread ( Missing Toddlers From Georiga Found Dead (by Airlinelover Apr 25 2005 in Non Aviation) )

I believe in luck...and sometimes people get extremely lucky, but no miracles.

If there is a 1 in a 10 billion odds of something happening a certain way I think it can happen. It's not entirely miraculous but it's still beating the odds. And I believe in that.

ok ok guys, but then, what consists a miracle?? a thing that has a little odd chance of happening it´s a miracle?or something that we don´t fully understand why or how, then we say it´s a miracle?

I had a car accident with my father some years ago, and I only didn´t die, because I was sleeping on the pax seat with the seat all the way down(like a bed), the car crashed and the roof of the car on the right side(pax seat) went all the way down to me, I had o crawl out of the car. To my mom, it was a miracle, to me it was luck to be sleeping....

I think that in medicine it´s a more common thing, specially with "hard" cases like cancers etc. and we, humans, don´t fully understand how some things works, then , we tend to believe it´s a miracle. I tend to believe it´s something odd, but it happened, some people win the lottery, some survive cancer....

If hell does exists I´ll. I don´t belive in good, I haven´t been baptized, I did sex out of the marriage, i do all the 7 capital sins, I do look at the others wife, I just don´t steal(I guess).
So, if there´s a hell, I´m a very good candidate.

You previously said that this is not a religious thread... By the way, capital sins are: Pride, avarice, envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, and sloth. "Steal" not.

Sorry for insist. I'm not judging you, but looking just a few facts of your life, confessed by yourself, I can only say that I 100% agree about your perfect candidacy for hell.
I'm not asking you to believe me. You're old enough to have your own beliefs, and the right to have it, but hell DO exist.

TACA, I wish I could wirte better in English, so we could have a better conversation, this is turning out to be interesting.

Anyway, there´s a litle joke on this:

And then the guy was dead, and he wakes up in hell.
He´s all sad, walking around a bit depressed, when he meets the devil in person.
Devil asks, hey man, why are U so sad?
Well, U know Mr.Devil, I´m in hell, not what I wanted for my post-life, I always tought I´d be in heaven right now.
Devil says, let me tell U one thing about hell:

Do U like gambling?
Sure do
Great, mondays are cassino nights, all games, bunnies all around...

Do U smoke?
yeah
On tuesdays, it´s our cigar nights, all cubans, 100% hand made (we have an agreement with Fidel)

Do U drink?
oh yeah
Wednesdays are Whisky nights, and not that shit made, only 100% 24 old Scottish thing

Do U do drugs?
ehehe, I did it, when a teen
Well, in here on thursdays we have it all, Pot, coke, crack, everything that we need to be happy

Now tell me, are U gay??
Hell no, I like women.
