like all science and m#nedicence you have a choice who to belive
on one hand there the vast bulk of medical opinion who have spent edecades studying and peer reviewing and having work peer review getting  vaccines passed as being fit for purpose . allof who studies are in the public domain to be analyzed and criticized by anyone   
and on the other you have a few outliers doctors and academics Quacks Ayurvedists,  Biofield therapist , Bioelectromagnetic therapist , shamens and reiki healers , Naturopaths , acupuncturists madmen.women,holistics , charlatans Holistics , homeopaths , and others who advocate cures that are  disproven, unproven, impossible to prove, or are excessively harmful in relation to their effect; and where the scientific consensus is that the therapy does not, or cannot, work because the known laws of nature are violated by its basic claims; or where it is considered so much worse than conventional treatment that it would be unethical to offer as treatment.

I know who I choose to belive

It's a real head-shaker is that this simple fact has to be reiterated at all. But worse still is the fact that there is a frighteningly large cohort of people on whom it has no effect whatsoever.

Another bullshit space-filler from Breheny.

From the wording of the advertisement, the business qualification clearly is not a prerequisite or an absolute requirement but a preference.

"The person should have a third-level, business-related qualification ...". If it was a prerequisite, the wording would be "must have".

McMafia anybody? Not too impressed so far. Boilerplate plot, unsympathetic characters, the lead character has the personality of a suck calf and the actor has the range of expression of a bench. We'll give it another episode, maybe.

To sum up,I believe the earth was ultimately God's creation.Science increasingly explains how but not why.Some things are simply beyond logic and human understanding.

I like billions of others believe a man died on a cross and then rose from the dead,something no other man or woman has done,and is therefore for me proof of God's existence.

Everyday proof is provided by miracle cures defying all expert medical opinion,ability of priests only to perform exorcisms etc.

when was the last time a priest performed an exorcism

I have a friend we call The Exorcist. Every time he comes to the house all the spirits disappear.

It might not therefore be a huge stretch to believe that the God that you believe in, who sent his son to die so that others may live eternal life with him, that told his followers to love one another, who is often characterized as the God of love.  It might not be a stretch to say that God may approve of two of his followers finding some of that love on this Earth he created. And maybe, just maybe that two humans finding love might actually be a sign that they are following your God's teachings very closely.  Celebrating that acceptance of love in their hearts and committing to each other that love in the same fashion as other followers in their local area with a religious ceremony may just may be a sign that they are followers of those teachings.
And surely encouraging and supporting fellow believers would also be following the over arching tenets of the belief system ? And that perhaps you, as a very fallible human telling other followers which of the followers practices are unacceptable in the eyes (wait he has eyes?) of God and his son might actually be contrary to those very teachings.

I am more than ever aware that my understanding of the universe and of life itself is sorely limited. I do not understand how those Christians who believe in a God of Love can resolve how they hold so much anger that their fellow human beings would want to get married  and at the same time have that sit well with rest of the teachings they follow.

A wedding in Jewish law (not tradition, law) is a very simple thing, gift is given and accepted, words of acquisition and consecration are said. And Voila- married. Ani L'Dodi V'Dodi Li.
I Belong to My Beloved and My Beloved Belongs to Me.

How hard can it be to allow yourself to say that my God might be ok with this, and maybe I should be too?

A good post for Christmas, heganboy.

Herself and myself have always found that it's good if we get out of the house a couple of times - a week nice meal, a couple of drinks, maybe a show or a dance. I usually go on Tuesdays and Thursdays and she goes Wednesdays and Fridays.
