Ok scientific context, but how about the "reliability factor." When was I even talking about "scientific context" in this regard? If you don't believe in the witnesses in the bible or me, that doesn't bother me at all.
Even in modern days, people fall prey to charlatans and con artists. Why would the people of ancient Palestine be any more wily?
Hundreds of witnesses, radical miracles during the biblical times, and even before that in the Old Testament.
Granted, I've not seen any miracles in my time; but I've seen alot of prophecying in action. As well as speaking tongues. So I have no reason to doubt that God would've stopped doing miracles described in bible this day, or that they would be impossible.
It's just the matter of fact and medical science, I suppose, that people have stopped trusting to God in this regard.
That doesn't remove the inner changed that God has causeth within me and the peace. I seriously doubt you can live at peace, if you still live according to your own will. All horrible things, sins and suffering are caused from man wanting to live the life in his own way, without accepting guidance of God, that is avalaible for those who believe.
Trying to figure out how this discussion drifted to this. Main point is that if there is an UFO found at the ocean floor, it would definetely give more evidence for bible. Im not neccessarily hoping it would be or excepting it to be an ufo; im just saying if one was ever found, it could possible give more evidence for the bible.
