god speaks to you?

Has God or a god ever spoken to you? I'm not talking about the whole god speaks to me everytime i see a child smile or when the wind blows. I mean a literal speaking voice. If so, I'm curious what he/she/it says?

because crazy people are fun to pick on?

God spoke to me once, a person in a church encouraged me to speak in tongs, god told me that the church has lost its direction and purpose and thats why he wont appear in modern society.

Not in the exact words but in a feeling/idealistic type, and I'm not even slightly religious.

speaking in tongs made me feel dirty, churches make me uncomfortable, home to too many crazies.

i think asking questions is the best way to learn. I've heard plenty of people say "God speaks to me" but they never say what he/she/it says. I'm curious. I've never heard a voice.

you wont hear a voice. only in the old testament, and even that was enough to drive people mad.

no wonder I haven't heard anything. Those people saying that God talks to them are liars. especially the Pope.

No voice, but through his word, through my brothers and sisters, and through his creation. <sigh> "Around and round we go"

hey, i'm just wondering. I'm learning. From what I've seen and heard so far, I don't have 1 piece of evidence to believe the claims of ANY religion. Basically the only evidence available is anecdotal evidence from people's own personal experience and the bible, which holds about as much water with me as books on Greek mythology. So, yes, I'm asking, what he says to you, because I haven't heard anything.

I have to agree with you. I don't believe the books written about evolution, I have never seen a single piece of evidence, and to top that off nobody has ever made a single claim of a personal experience with the missing link, or links, or whatever anecdotal mystical being we are waiting to find.
Hey maybe you can find it in Greek mythology.

Dude I didn't realize we thought so much alike.

I used to hear voices when I drove my old 1985 Chrysler Town and Country Station wagon. I would hear things like "coolant is low" and "fasten your seat-belt" and "the electrical system is malfunctioning, pull over immediately" I don't know if that was God, but it was really weird. I got rid of the car, and the voices went away.

You never cease to amaze me Toes. You are an uneducated fool who doesnt take the time to research anything you blather about.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_erectus

A simple wiki search for our evolutionary ancestors turns up a bountiful amount of information on where we came from, how long ago we were there and what social networks were in effect at the time. You can go to the Smithsonian to see these artifacts IN PERSON if you so desire.

Since I KNOW that you wont read the article since it is not about a) The Bible b) Crown Royal or c) Republicans - I will tell you that this particular evolutionary stepping stone to common man was alive around 2 MILLION years ago. That is a bit earlier than 2030 years ago when Jesus was doing his thing.

While your doing your reserch look up Ernest Haeckel, Orce man, Piltdown man, Nebraska man, Java man, also look up the bullshit horse evolution therory.
You may have to look a little further than wikipedia for something accurate.

I don't think you can find these artifacts at the Smithsonian, since they are no longer on display after being proved a fraud put together by scientists for there own personal gain.

Some how I get the feeling you would be proud of a scientist like that.

There are a plethora of references at the bottom of that Wiki page to look through if you are so inclined. The fact is, I have already read what I need to to understand our evolutionary history. You however, never bother to read more than the National Enquirer on the shelf at your local Wal-Mart. Until you provide credible references for your drivel, you will not be taken seriously by anyone who is even semi-intelligent.
