More proof that Christianity is true.
« on: November 08, 2018, 07:57:19 am »
Last night I had a nightmare of there being a shooting. Today I found out that there was a shooting at a bar in California. God gave me the dream so that I could prove that Christianity is true. How do you explain the fact that I had a dream of a shooting before I found out about an actual one that happened?

Yeah, but didn't you also dream about nailing your cousin behind the dunes? That would prove, what, he wants you happy?

I see two perfectly reasonable possibilities that don't require a divine explanation:

1.  Sheer coincidence.  Also, it ain't exactly like shootings are an unheard-of event these days, sadly.  They've been in people's minds a lot lately, so for someone to dream of one and there then be an actual shooting the next day really doesn't strike me as a very remarkable coincidence.

2.  Or you never had such a dream, you're making it up.

perfectly reasonable

There's your problem right there, you're assuming people like Jakey-boy are reasonable.

why did God give you the dream the night before the attack not 
say a week, so you could have give the prediction before the attack not after it.

C'mon man, omniscience, omnibenevolence  and omnipotence doesn't mean you can do anything useful.

That is a good point. If I gave an accurate prediction, it could have easily caused conversions.

If I felt I had foreknowledge of an event like that, I'd be more concerned about possibly saving some lives, not converting people or whatever....

Of course saving lives should be the first priority. But as a result of saving lives, people would be converted because they would know that a massacre was stopped by somebody who had foreknowledge.

I was not trying to take advantage of the massacre. I thought that the dream confirmed that God gave me knowledge of the massacre. Then KingofRhye pointed out that there have been many shootings so it could have been a coincidence. Then aMuslimSatanist pointed out that if it was from God, he would have given me the dream  sooner so that I would be able to predict it before it happened.

If saving lives would be your first priority, then why was the first thing - the only thing - you mentioned converting people?  You didn't say anything about saving lives until I brought it up.

This is the guy who wants to start a war between the US and pretty much all of Europe and the Middle East. Suffice it to say, saving lives isn't really priority #1 for him.
