I'm afraid the two don't ever mix in the same circles

Everything exists is an infinite number of possible states. When observed, it collapses into one of the several possible states. This is determined by karma. Probably.

This implies a supernatural being is granting a supernatural act to a natural being, sounds poppycock to me. Bash bash bash.

Assuming this isn't a "let's get together for a bash-the-theists circle-jerk while showing how clever we are" thread, perhaps you could define what you mean by "actually makes sense"?
For example, why isn't the statement "God has promised eternal bliss to the followers of His Law" not a logical statement? It contains no contradictions, or internally false statements. It doesn't even contain externally false statements. There is no way in the world you or anyone else could logically prove the statement to be false nor indeed could anyone logically prove the statement to be true.
Perhaps you could therefore tighten your definitions a little. Did you maybe mean to ask whether anyone could make a statement about religion that was verifiable and falsifiable? Maybe you just wanted a statement you could agree with? I dunno. But what you actually asked for is somewhat unclear to me.
Neggers turn the other cheek. bash,bash,bash.

Theism isn't logical?
(Original post by Sheep)
ITT: Say something about religion (theism) that is logical (actually makes sense), it can be any religion, it can be something in your holy book or just a general, logical reason as to why people should take up your religion
is easier than making a thread about all the things that just aren't logical (don't make sense)
Suppose there was a stick that was moved by the wind caused by the sea ad infinitum - eventually you are going to come to an unchanged mover (a causer of all things caused). From an a priori perspective, it could be argued that God can begat (give rise to) anything bar another God (because, by defintion, God is perfect). Good wouldn't be without evil and evil is really just the reduced concentration of goodness (by which complies with the moral parameters of God who has the standard of holliness) - and that is a result of finitude (the opposite of light isn't dark and the opposite of heat is not cold). Evolution suggests that you can put some watch parts into a bag, shake the bag for a few billion years and be able to pull out a fully working watch at the end of the process (given an infinite number of chances, yes it would happen) - but how can humans evolve from fish? Fish lay eggs and don't care for their young. Plus why are there still monkeys? - this is for those who beleive in the verbatim teachings of Darwin....
By the very defintion of dualism of mind and matter (think Decartes!!) the cognition is attributed to the immortal, immaterial soul which has the ability to transcend this entity. By the very process of electrical modulation and demodulation, the electrical signals that pulsate along the axons and dendrites can be changed (therefore you could be immersed into an alternate reality and decieved).
...but I'm just giving you guys some food for thought...
